Youth Services Responsibility By BARBARA CLAREY "I want him to be more responsible." "Kids today just don't have aoy responsibility. My daughter got this real good job. She did good for a few weeks, got bored and quits." "He doesn't take care of anything toys, books, clothes - nothing! That kid just doesn't take any responsibility for his things." Anything here sound familiar? We all want our children to become responsible people. But how does this happen. Respon- this is done with un- derstanding statements, not critical and accusing com- ments. For example, if your son comes home from school walking slowly, sulking, do not say, "Hey sour puss, what happened to you today? Get in more trouble?" Instead try: "Something must have happened to you today. Looks like it was a hard day." This way you convey your sympathy and un- derstanding, and if the child wants to discuss the problem he will. So, before I go on with any further steps towards responsibility, spend a week practicing and developing your sensitivity to your children and each other as parents and partners. It may sound corny, but try it. For example, ladies, if you man is grumpy and quarrelsome, snapping at the children; instead of: "Boy your in a good mood, what the heck is bothering you now? You are such a grump." Try: "You must of had a rotten day. Let me get you some coffee ..... " And, gentlemen, if the dinner is burnt instead of, "Well I see you did it again. Another fine meal. When are you going to learn to cook? I come home tired and hungry and look what I get." Try this: "Looks like you had a rough day. Sit down and have a glass of wine while I give a try at some bacon and eggs." ttappy New Year!

This meeting is open to women of all faiths and all are most cordially invited to attend. The good word for " today: Quietness By PHYLISS SJOBLOM TEXT: Better is a handful with quietness than both hands full with travail and vexation. Ecclesiastes 4:6. In this Christmas season we tend to become so overly busy that we lose sight of the true meaning of what we are celebrating. The jostling crowds, the anxiety over whether or not we have chosen the correct gift for each one on our list, the harrying race against time to get all the cards written and in the mail, the stretching and breaking of the budget as we buy more and more of things we don't really need; all these things lead to a vexation of the spirit when in reality we ought to be entering into a period of quietness and contemplation. Isaiah 30:15 says, '...in quietness and confidence shall be your strength...' so as you slow down and quiet yourself before the will find your 'renewed to go extra tasks more If Jesus could words, 'Peace, be calm the very seas will do the same for ask for His help in serenity. Come apart from the{ and bustle and reflec! are alw beautiful words of Lull. in a 11, 'And the angel saition, suc them, Fear not; for, Ledfort bring you good tidin Legio great joy, which shall Ithis we the people.

Theitutiliary i wo00, two thousand years qu? syaddir still being felt today. Jd to ser what Christmas is all'r thane In the words of I@ u r Ilulce ol 46:10, "Be still, and kn0/ This I am God.' sibility cannot be imposed. It cannot be learned by being forced to do chores, keep the room clean, not use bad words, and empty the rub- bich. According to Dr. Ginott; "responsibility must he based on respect for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." We are not used to seeing responsibility in such a broad context, rather we often see "responsibility, or the lack of it, in much more concrete terms: in our child's messy room, tardy school attendance, sloppy homework, reluctant piano practice, sulky disobedience, or bad manners." "The problem of respon- sibility in children is referred back to the parent, or more precisely to the parent's values as expressed in his child-rearing practices," Remember, I told you that parenting was not easy. It just doesn't come naturally to everyone." Responsibility begins with the parents: the parents' attitudes and skills including a willingness to allow children to feel all their feelings and to demonstrate to them acceptable ways of handling their feelings. The difficulty lies in not having been allowed to learn by this method ourselves. Weaare use to the pat phrases method of handling feelings and emotions. Such com- ments as: "You don't really mean what you say, you know you like Uncle Fred." "It is not you talking like that. The devil in you is making you naughty." "If you mention that word again, I'II spank you. You are not supposed to feel like that." These statements ignore the existance of feelings. But our emotions are like river currents - they cannot be stopped, only diverted. Likewise, we must acknowledge our children's feelings and help channel them and divert them art- fully. So, how? First recognise that "chaac ter education depends on our relationship with our children and that character traits cannot be transmitted by words but must be demonstrated." Second: Become more interested in what your children are thinking and feeling. Watch and listen to them. Accept a posture of wanting to understand and show that you understand your children's feelings and emotions. As mentioned in earlier article on feelings, Pvt. Larry Adams receives Parachutist's Badge 'Pvt. Larry W. Adams, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy L. Adams, 139 Broolmide Drive, Cloverdale, Calif., re,ntly received a Parachutist Badge upon completion of the ti ee- week airborne course at t'e U.S. Army Infantry Scho, Fort Bedn/ng, Ga. During the first week of training, students undergo a rigorous physical training program and receive in- struction in the theory of parachuting. The second week they receive practical training by jumping from 34- foot and 0-foot towers. The final week includes five static-line parachute jumps.
