UNDERSTANDING CHILDREN SPONSORED BY THE IOWA CHILD WELFARE RESEARCH STATION The Lady Bug Tom and his mother were walk- ing leisurely across the well-trod- den path in the park. After one quick step Tom exclaimed gleefully, "Killed a buff, Mom. Squashed her dead." No truer words were ever spoken. The remains of the bright red little lady bug were now well-pressed. Respect for living things? Not much at Tom's age. What should the mother say and do? Should she pay no attefition, merely say- ing, "Now be l:areful, Tom. Watch where you are walking." Should she blame him with, "You bad boy, what did you do that for?" She could moralize with, "The poor little bug, you've killed it" until Tom would gladly glue himself up to the Lady Bug police! Or she could take action immediately and smack him just hard enough "To remember not to kill little bugs just for fun!" Better still, she could tell him that the little victim is called a lady bug and how it lives, so that he understands abouf the bug. May- be she could find the place where the lady bug makes it home, or it could mean a trip to the encyclo- pedia if the bug is not on her "well-known' list. Even so, her child will have a chance to de- velop a deeper understanding of life and sharper appreciation of living things. And don't think he wouldn't appreciate her taking his mTnt of view. He didn't have murder in mind, you know. Mrs. A. H. Beebe Named President Of Hospital Auxiliary Rockford--'Tvirs. A. H.
