QUESTION: How can I ac- quaint my junior high schooler With the need for responsible be- havior throughout his life? He is desperately in need of this under- standing. DR. DOBSON: The overall objective during the preadolescent period is to teach the child that his actions have inevitable conse- quences. One of the most serious casualties in a permissive society is the failure to connect those two factors, behavior and consequen- ces. Too often, a 3-year-old child screams insults at his mother, but morn stands, blinking her eyes in confusion. A first-grader hunches an attack on his teacher, but the school makes allowances for his age and takes no action. A 10-year-old is caught stealing  candy in a store, but is released to e recognizance of his parents. A 15-year-old sneaks the keys to the re  car, but the father pays the ) nl in e when he is arrested. 1" / You see, all through .behavior and consequences, .breaking the connection and ice, preventing the valuable learning ,:.that could have occurred."

What is the result? This overprotection produces emotional cripples who often develop lasting characteristics of dependency and a kind of per- petual adolescence. How does one connect be- havior with consequences? By being willing to let the child ex- perience a reasonable amount of pain or inconvenience when he be- haves irresponsibly. When Jack misses the school bus through his own dawdling, let him walk a mile or two and enter school in mid- morning, unless safety factors prevent this. If Janie carelessly loses her lunch money, let her skip a meal. Obviously, it is possle to carry this principle too far, being harsh and inflexible with an imma- ture child. But the best approach is to expect boys and giris to carry the responsility that is appropriate for their age, and occasionally to taste the bitter fruit that irrespon- sility bears. QUESTION: Do you believe love at first sight occurs between some people? DR. DOBSON: Though some readers will disagree with [I IIII I me, love at first sight is a physical and emotional impossibility. Why? Because love is not a feeling of romantic excitement. It is more than a desire to marry a potential partner. It goes beyond intense sexual attraction. It ex- ceeds the thrill at having "cap- tured" a highly desirable social prize. These are emotions that are unleashed at first sight, but they do not constitute love. Real love, in contrast to popular notions, is an expression of the deepest appreciation for another human being. It is an in- tense awareness of his or her needs and longings--past, present and fu- ture. It is unselfish and giving and caring. And, befieve me, these are not attitudes one "falls" into at first sight, as though we were tumbling into a ditch. I have developed a lifelong love for my wife, but it was not something I fell into. I grew into it, and that process took time. I had to know her before I could ap- predate the depth and stability of her character--to become ac- quainted with the nuances of her personality, which I now cherish. The familiarity from which love has blossomed simply could not be generated on "some enchanted evening across a crowded room." One cannot love an unknown object, regardless of how attractive or sexy or nubile it is.

"Premature infants fed human milk show a significant in- crease in weight when they are ex- clusively fed 'hindmilk,' milk produced 2-3 minutes after the ini- tial flow," said Dr. Richard Schan- ler, an associate professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine. The new feeding strategy re- quires expressed breastmilk to be divided into two portions: foremilk and hindmilk. The forenfilk, or ini- tial milk, is collected and frozen for later use. Infants are fed the hinemilk, which is three to four times higher in fat. The technique is the result of work conducted by the CNRC, Baylor and Texas Children's Hospital. "Premature infants may have difficulty gaining weight on breastmilL We suspect they were not getting enough calories," Schanler said. Fat is a major calorie source, he explained, adding that the fat content of human milk varies from mother to mother, from feeding to feeding and within a single feeding as the m;lk changes from foremilk to hindmUk_ "This is not a problem for full-term, breast-fed babies who can fill calorie needs by drinking more milk," Schauler said. Prema- ture infants, however, cannot suck or swallow and must rely on breastmilk fed to them in regulated amounts through a tube. These tiny babies are also shortchanged on fat because it tends to separate from milk and stick to feeding tubes and collec- tion botfles. In the past, infants who did not gain weight on human m;lk were placed on formula, which has a consistent composition and is homogenized so the fat does not separate. "But the switch meant that infants lost out on the protective qualities of breastmilk," Schanler said. Because evidence suggests breastmilk protects premature in- fants from potentially life-threaten- ing infections, the nutrition inves- tigators decided to place the in- fants on the fat-rich hindmilk. The study followed 15 infants who were eight to 12 weeks prema- ture. Lactation Support Program counselors at Texas Children's taught mothers to divide their milk during routine expressions. The hindmilk was delivered to the hospital each day where it was for- tiffed with protein and minerals. "Mothers loved doing this because they could see their efforts paying off-their babies were gain- ing weight," Schauler said. Study results, reported by Christina J. Valentine at Baylor, Schanler, and Nancy M. Hurst at Texas Children's, were published in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and NuOition.
