White Llllie Mae Lane Donna Dail Notice To Perquimans Parents The guidance office of Perquimans County High School wishes to make known to parents and students in Perquimans County the several Demonstration School Programs to be held at Western Carolina University this summer. . The following programs will be in action beginning June 12: Programs for the gifted, Special Education, Reading Im provement, Recreation, Enrichment Program In Mathematics. These programs are enrich ment programs and do not carry credit. These programs encompass students in grades 4 9. The students enrolled in probably just another of our popular misconceptions. Many of us tend to think that older mothers are easily fatigued and not able to express love to children as easily a younger mothers. A classic study of child rearing does not support this belief. Sears, Maccoby, and Levin classified younger mothers as those age 27 or less who have a child in the first grade. These mothers will have two children by age 21 or 22. Older mothers in this case are those who start having children at age 22 or 23 The authors found that the older mothers were somewhat warmer or more affectionate toward all their children than the younger mothers. For the first child there was very little difference in the two groups of mothers. However, for all children past the first the older mothers were more af fectionate. This fact was true regardless of social class, sex of the child, or time between children. The common assumption that younger mothers have more energy, moreflexibility , and thus more affection for children is not supported by this study. The authors mention two explanations for (Continued on Page 6.)
