If, if' i i i ii ! i if 2B The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, March 13, 1990 an In Priscilla Maren Older Children Still Need Hugs Most parents touch, hold, and hug their youngsters a lot when they are little without thinking much about it. It just seems a natural thing to do when they are small. As children grow bigger, espe- cially if new babies come along, par- ents give them less and less physi- cal attention. Of course older children don't need their parents to bathe them or dress them or pick them up. But they still need to touch and be touched by their parents. Loving physical contact is some- thing that people need all thelr lives long. When they are babies, they get it from their parents. When they are adults they get it from their lov- ers or spouses, and from their own children. There is no reason for a gap in between, and it's part of a parent's job to make sure that there isn't a gap in the availability of this impor- tant component of nurturing. Who but the parent is in an ap- propriate position to show warm feelings, appreciation, or reassur- ance by hugging or cuddling or lov- ingly touching the awkward half- grown child who is all elbows and knees, or the child who has all of a sudden acquired a mature body and doesn't yet know how to handle it? The comfort and security that lov- ing physical contact can impart is very important at those times of transition when most children fear that they may not be lovable. Sometimes just laying a hand on your older child's shoulder can be a way of telling that child, "1 am with you," and many an adolescent who would reject or refute a parents ver- bal statement of support will accept the nonverbal message that such physical contact imparts. For very young children, loving physical care is essential. As they grow older and learn to take care of themselves they still need to ',keep in touch" with their parents. There will be many times when your physi- cal touch -- a hug, a squeeze, a hand on the shoulder, or a playful bump with your hip -- will give them the needed assurance that you care about them and appreciatethem. Something To Do When you're folding blankets or sheets or tablecloths, show your child how to put the corners together and hold them, so that you can match your end to the end the child is holding. As the child gets bigger, you can develop a cooperative sys~ tem of folding where you each put your corners together to make the first fold, then stretch the sheet (or whatever) between you, holding the ends with both hands, then walk to- ward each other and put your two ends together, and give it a final fold. It's almost like a dance. With a little child, you can do a similar "dance" with pillow cases and tow- els. Something To Make When your child draws a picture of a house or a barn, carefully cut the door along three sides and fold it out so it can open and close. Do the same with the windows. Find a piece of paper the same size as the one the picture is on. Help your child paste this paper onto the back of the picture, putting paste only around the edges of the paper. When the paste is dry, your child can open the door and the windows and draw the people and/or animals inside the house or barn.

Searle Roderick, also known as Ruderic or Rodriguez, lived in Spain during the Ninth Century, a time when the Moors dominated Spain and perse- cuted the Christians beginning in the year 850. Roderick was a priest at Cabra. He had two brothers. One brother became a Moslem and the other s~mply abandoned the faith. One day Roderick tried to break up a vicious argument between his brothers. They both beat him so badly he fell unconscious. The Mos- lem brother than paraded him through town declaring that he had renounced his Christian Faith and wanted to die a Moslem. The bat- tered and broken Roderick was too sick to speak up for himself. Within time he was eventually able to es- cape from this brother's home which angered the man even more. As soon as the Moslem brother located Roderick he turned him over to the "kadi," a judge, on the charge that his priestly brother had rebelled against Mohammedanism and re- turned to Christianity. Although Rod- erick tried to explain the entire si;u- ation the ka(~i would only believe the Moslem broiher. Roderick was sen- tenced to prison and sent to the worst dungeon in Cordova, the capi- tal of Moorish Spain. During this time Roderick be- came friends with a man named So- Ioman. Both men had been charged with the same crime and lent sup- port to each other. Their long prison terms were designed to break their spirits but they would not allow that to happen. When the judge realized his plan was not working, he sepa- rated the men. This idea also failed so, in 857 he had them beheaded. Saint Eulogius, a priest, writer, and head of the most important ec- clesiastical school in Spain at the time, saw their bodies lying near a river and watched as soldiers threw stones at the corpses until they were so mutilated the Christians could not make relics of them. In times of trouble, talk to Saint Roderick to help yoL' through your adversity. Saint Roderick is remem- bered on his feast day, March 13.
