I w411 never know by what means this so-young child came to have such skill. But what he could do, surely many others could do. If we gave up out vested interest in children’s dependency and incompetence would they not much more quickly become independent and competent? We ought to give it a try. 11. THE CHILD AS LOVE OBJECT YEARS AGO, A friend of mine used to tell a very funny Embarrassing Moment story. Hearing of a sale at one of New York’s large department stores, she went there early, like many other women, to find some good bargains before they were all snapped up.

Such talk is very discouraging or damaging to the young. No one who is small, powerless, ignorant, anxious and confused wants to be told that this is the best time of his life. As I write this, I have just walked through the Boston Public Garden on a sunny April morning. There I saw many mothers out with small children, many of them what we call toddlers. Watching their eagerness and energy, and sharing their pleasure in the world around them, I thought, if Nature had made a creature which was exactly like a healthy and confident three- or four-year-old child for its entire lifetime, it would make the world’s finest pet, not as active or graceful as some other animals, perhaps, but far more intelligent and trainable and able to please and delight us in many more ways.

It is true that the work she was doing was more varied and interesting than what most people do. The point is that she did it very well. J. H. van den Berg tells of a sixteen-year-old who, in time of war, was sent somewhere in Holland to take charge of a garrison. I recall reading when I studied naval history in the NROTC that during our Revolutionary War fourteen-year-olds were often midshipmen - the lowest-ranked naval officer - and at least one sixteen-year-old was in command of his own ship, a far more difficult and responsible task than most people ever do in a lifetime.
