Children Should Be Made To Feel At Home
We always consider that home is the best place for a child, but in some cases it isn't true. The truth of the matter is , according to Mrs. Leta MOORE, Extension family life specialist, that the home is good for a youngster if he is loved and wanted and most important--if he KNOWS that he is loved and wanted. Home should offer the child the opportunity to grow normally, Mrs. Moore insists. "The child should have certain things done for him and have some things left for him to do for himself" Give him time that he can use in his own way, she advises, and a place where he can do things by himself. " And most important" , Mrs. Moore believes, "a home is good for a child if he is made to feel that he is truly a part of the family group....sharing the fun, the work,and the responsibilities of the other family member.
