(back) Subject: Re: Bad Kids and Nightmares From: "Roy Kersey" <rkersey@tds.net> Date: Thu, 30 Dec 2004 18:44:30 -0500   Hello All, I see my Margo's post that her "bad kid" was an innocent 3 year old. = Someone asked how these things might be handeled. Common sense and good = social inteligence are the guides. I gather that Margo felt that = curiousity rather than meanness was at work and the child couldn't have = been expected to know what he was doing. Laughter and a watchful eye in = the future were the appropriate response. When kids or adults do things that bother me, I think it is = appropriate to verbalize an "I-message"--- "I felt hurt (upset, angry) = when you did that." Such statements need to be adjusted to the age of the = receiver, but might help the child understand how other people feel. = However, the main input needs to be to the parents who are responsible for = the child's behavior. While Margo's three year old was apparently blameless, the thread = that developed seemed to indicate that there are many brats about these = days, something I certainly have noticed myself. I do think it takes a = whole village to raise a child and I certainly think this is an = appropriate subject to be raised in church, where moral development = begins. I find that many parents haven't a clue, but are open to = suggestion from us elders. I hope these comments help this thread draw = to a positive close.

I = do not have the book to hand, but recall that the circumstances were thus, as =   related in Carlo Curley's autobiography "In the Pipeline:"   After an extended practice session on a very hot day in an = un-air-conditioned building, Carlo Curley had a meeting with Virgil Fox. Mr. Curley, who was = at that time somewhat ample of girth, had been perspiring profusely. Mr. Fox, =   who was Carlo's teacher and therefore on familiar terms, made the = following comment in his customary acerbic way:   "Chicken, I'm the only one who can tell you this. Soap and water are practically free!"   I feel sure that this is the remark that should have been quoted. To my knowledge, Virgil Fox never made the statement "You stink to high heaven" = to anyone.   Lew Williams
