PAGE 8 HELP SELVES, SEMINARIAN--The fifth grade pupils at St. James Pro-Cathedral grade school culminated their study of the Holy Mass recently with an re-enactment of the Holy Sacrifice in the classroom under the watchful and approving eye of the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Herman Meilinger, V. F,pastor The vestments, altar, chalice and paper host are "just pretend" but the prayers, hymns and devotion are genuine. The priest is potential but the collection contributed by each class "congregation" will be used to help a seminarian become a true priest of God.

Permissive- ness carried too far spells chaos in the family --"spoiled.] children and frustrated parents WHAT YOUR, o. FRIEl~DS SEEMoTO HAVE FIXED on in their child raising practices is the tag end of a theory, current a generation ago, that children would develop best if left to their own devises. All parents should do was to remove the conven- tional restraints--and stand around to pick up the pieces. Every child would know, or would discover through experience, what was most suitable to his peculiar needs SOME TRACES OF THIS THEORY still remain in our educa- tional system. Not so long ago, I attended a teacher's conference during which a student representative read a report insisting that the classes in introductory sociology should decide what topics they were to study during the course. Most of the teach- ers present found this report very "interesting.' until someone suggested that since the introductory students knew nothing about sociology, their choices could represent nothing more than loo].ed ignorance.

Children were to be seen and not heard, while not too much attention was paid to their Meeting in Iowa changing, developmental needs BUT THE CONTRARY SHIFT to a child-centered approach ROCKFORD -- Two students was equally unbalanced. Why should respect for the child and his needs imply rejection of" discipline, training in self-control,[fr m the diocese are scheduled or awareness of the rights of others? Of course, the resultant little monsters don't develop into big monsters--they just don't grow up, for they never learn to control their emotions or over- come their childish self-centeredness. Fortunately. with the ex- ception of a relatively few couples like your lriends, the major- ity of modern parents recognize that some controls and discipline are necessary, at least for their own peace of mind. JUDGING FROM THE CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE in the field, the current ideal held up to parents is to raise their children as comfortable, understood, satisfied individuals Par- ents are-urged to "enjoy" their children, to be consistent yet reasonably flexible in disciplinel and to grant them considerable freedom in choosing their life-goals and standards. This sounds reasonable, considering that modern children should be raised to live in a complex, changing, highly organized society in which they must learn how to get along with a great variety of persons and pressures. BUT A SECOND LOOK AT THIS IDEAL reveals that it stresses technique rather than content, the "how" rather than the "what." To raise a child as a comfortable, understood, satis- fied i.ndividual is not. in itself, an adequate preparation for life, even in our affluent society. What life-goals does the child have? What values does he cherish? What basic principles and norms has he acquired to guide him in his adult activities? MEN ARE NOT MICE--or contended cows, either.
