I talk until I'm blue in the face and he just doesn't listen." As "they" say, actions speak louder than words. As mentioned last week, this material appeared in the paper, "The Chat- terbox," which is put out by the California Parenting Institute. plants. There will be a band concert by the Washington School Bandprior to the opening of the craft booths. AH parents and com- munity members are en- couraged to attend and support this local youth activity. Anyone who can offer assistance should contact Washington School at 894-2.,532. 10. Avoid undue attention when the child makes a bid for it. Encourage him on your own terms, during the quiet moments. 11. Make a habit of acting more and talking less. Don't tell a child what you are going to do. Give him choices and then follow through. The more you coax a child the more deaf he becomes and you end up .just 'shooting flies.' This number eleven is important to remember when you think of the times we hear, "How many times have I told you not to do rights." 7. "Give children as much freedom and responsibility as they can handle. 8. Maintain a routine and schedule around the home. First establish the rules and then allow for flexibility in the rules. Don't focus on flexibility first." 9. Avoid the pitfalls of pity. Problem dwelling (sympathy) is not growth producing. With children who feel they are victims of other people and external circumstances, shift con- versations around to problem solving processes (empathy: 'What could you do about this problem?).

Among their choices for ile second quarter were ome economics, photography, woodshop, glass art, journalism, drama, art, computer study, and in- strumental music, students have Ihe opportunity to choose new electives each quarler and thereby explore many areas of interest. Studenls also have the oplion of remaining in the same elective and im- proving their skills in woodworking or cooking, for example.
