Get Training
Child Care
NEW YORK-Training in child
care and maternity care for
fathers—not just mothers—is a
definite trend.
"Classes for prospective fathers
were sort of like man-bites-dog 10
years ago w'hen the idea was first
started but now they are becom-
ing the accepted thing,” declares
Miss Hazel Corbin, director of
Maternity Center association.
The classes are particularly im-
portant now, she said, because of
the increased responsibility placed
on fathers when mothers and ba­
bies are sent home from over­
crowded hospitals three or four
days after the child’s birth.
Men Were Bewildered
Maternity Center association
was first to give fathers’ courses
in child and maternity care, be­
cause the demand from bewildered
men showed the need for them.
n X nnÍn,K7 hie r ° rga,nÍ'
zations h a v e started similar
courses in Flint, Mich., Philadel­
phia, New Haven, Brooklyn and
many other cities, Miss Corbin
Maternity Center association
now graduates four or live classes
a year, and has trained approxi­
mately 2,000 men in the ways of
the nursery.
This begins with the prac­
tical details of baby bathing,
at which fathers are often
more deft than women be­
cause they are eager to learn.
Miss Corbin says. They learn
to handle the ehlhl so he w ill
feel secure and not in danger
of being drop;ied as well as
how to sterilize bottles and
prepare formulas.
The child care end of the courses
also includes the growing child.
The classes also teach fathers
embryology—the baby's develop­
ment before birth, so the father
w ill know w hy his wife needs pre­
natal care. Then he will not com­
plain because he thinks she goes
to the doctor too often, may urge
her to go if she neglects it.
They teach the physiological
and emotional changes that take
place in a pregnant woman, so
that if her temper is sharper than
usual or she is prone to tears,
the prospective father will be
equipped to meet the situation
with tact or diversion.
Middle Class Tots
Are More Inclined
I o 1 liiiinb Sucking
Good p a cka ging , a« dem on­
s tra te d by th is eellophane-w rapped

Most Unusual County
DETROIT, Mich. — Thumb
sucking is three times more prev­
alent among children of middle
class families than among chil­
dren of the poor, according to
Dr. Martha Ericson, psychologist
at Merrill Palmer school here.
The reason, Dr. Ericson ex­
plains, is that youngsters on the
Gold Coast are nursed less by
their mothers and are bottle fed
i shorter periods than the “tene­
ment child."
Other findings, gleaned from in­
terviews of 48 middle class and
52 lower class mothers in Chicago,
1. Children in middle class
families are expected to assume
responsibility in the home earlier
than the lower class children.
2. The school and work ex­
pectation for middle class chil­
dren show that children are ex­
pected to prepare themselves for
a profession. The lower class
parents would like their children
to become professional workers,
but high school graduation is
usually the actual ceiling level for
most of the low class children.
