10A The Mountain Messenger, Sunday, March 26, 1995 By Andrea Galnex I When was the last time you asked your child to help you with a household chore? Did you let him or her help you bake cookies or pack for a trip! Doing chores can help your child feel like an important part of the family. Including a child in your daily chores will en- hance his or her sense of pride and responsibilty and strengthen the relationship be- tween the two of you. Mother's Day is a good time to begin thinking of how you can help your child feel impor- tant and needed. It often seems that a young child, the one who can help the least, is the one who wants to help the most. A wise mother (or father) will take advantage of a child' desire to help, because helping with household tasks is an accept- able way for him or her to gain approval and attention. Children who have jobs to do feel useful and worthwhile. By successfully completing chores they will gain courage to try other things. Children who al- ways have things done for them by loving, efficient parents could become selfish, demanding chil- dren who think that other people are supposed to do for them. Sometimes parents get so used to taking care of their chil- dren they fail to realize the youngsters are able to do many tasks for themselves. The less-than-efficient, less- than-perfect work of a child may be frustrating to some parents. However, it is important not to criticize the way a job was done. Find something about the job that was successful and com- ment on it. Remember to recog- nize a child's help with a smile, a look for a few words of appre- ciation. It's important to tailor the job to the age of the child. Even a 2-year-old can help with simple household chores, such as straightening throw pillows and picking up toys. As the child gets older, the tasks should be increased in difficulty and in number. Being involved in household chores raises a child's feeling of self-worth. Today's Chuckle: A law school student went into a nice Italian restaurant wearing no shoes. When they refused to serve him, he turned a waiter upside down and con- sequently was arrested for cre- ating a disturbance. At the po- lice station the student stood on his right to make one phone call. While he was being finger- printed, a delivery boy came into the station and asked the desk sergeant: "Who order the sausage and mushroom pizza?" Ronceverte City Commis- sioner Virginia Faber spoke to members of the Merchants As- sociation on the acquisition of property on the north side on Main Street. She clarified the necessary demolition process including the assistance of an engineering class from West Vir- ginia Tech.
