DON'TS FOR UNCLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 4 April 1913
DON'TS FOR UNCLE. Don't think it is necessary to make jokes with the children ail the time. Little boys and little girls dearly love a joke now and then, but, if you are constantly laughing at them, they will feel they are making themselves absurd and will grow shy in your .pres ence. Don't forget how much a trip or a day's outing meant to you when you were a schoolboy. They mean just the same to your small nephews. Don't talk down to the children. They hate it. Address them as sen sible beings, and treat them as ladies and gentlemen in miniature. Then they will hail you as a kindred soul, and be perfectly at ease with you. Don't be frightened of the baby. Kiss him quite boldly, and even take him in your arms if you are asked to do so. He won't fall to pieces, for, though his head looks rather loose on his shoulders, it is really much firmer than It seems. ,
