John Graves QUESTION: Do yea ever favor removing a ,child fi-om one school to transfer him to another? DR. DOBSON: Isn't it about time you made friends with yourself? Aren't there enough headaches in life without beating your skull against the old brick wall of inadequacy, year after year? IfI were to draw a caricature that would symbolize the millions of adults like you with low self-es- teem, I would depict a bowed, weary traveler. Over his shoulder, I would place the end of a mile-long chain to which is attached tons of scrap iron, old tires and garbage of all kinds. Each piece of junk is in- scribed with the details of some humiliation: a failure, an embar- rassment, a rejection from the past. He could let go of the chain and free himself from that heavy load which immobilizes and exhausts him, but he is somehow convinced that it must be dragged throughout life. So he plods onward, digging a furrowin the good earth as he goes. You can free yourself from the weight of the chain if you will but turn it loose. Your inferiority is based on a distortion of reality seen through a child's eyes. The stand- ards by which you have assessed yourself are themselves changing and fickle. Dr. Maxwell Maltz, the plas- tic surgeon who authored Psycho- II said women came to him in the 1920s requesting that their breasts be reduced in size. In King Soloman's biblical love song, he asks his bride to over- look his dark skin that had oc- curred from exposure to the sun. In his day, right meant white. But now bronzed Soloman would be the pride of the beach. False valuesl Modern women are ashamed to admit that they carry 10 extra pounds of weight, yet Rembrandt would have loved to paint their plump bodies. Don't you see that your per- soual worth is not really dependent on the opinions of others and the temporal, fluctuating values they represent? The ,sooner you can come to accept the transcending worth of your humanness, the sooner you can come to terms with yourself. I must agree with the writer who said, %Vhile in therace to save our face, why not conquer inner space?" It's not a bad idea. These questions and answers are excerpted from the book Dr. Dobson A.,ers Your Dr. James Dobson is a psychologist, author and president of Focus on the Family, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the home. Cor- respondence to Dr. Dobson should be addressed to: Focus on the Family, P.O. Box 444, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. (c), 1982, Tyn- dale House Publishers, Inc. DR. DOBSON: Yes, there are limes when a change of schools -or evena change of teachera within a school--can be in the child's best interest. Educators are reluctant to approve these transfers, for ob wens reasons, although the pos- sibility should be considered when the situation warrants. For e.aample, there are oc- casions when a young student runs into social problems that can be resolved best by giving him a "dean start" someplace else. Further- more, schools vary tremendously in their difficulty;, some are located in higher socioeconomic areas where a majority of the children are much more intelligent than would or- diuarily be ed. The mean IQ in schools of this nature may fall between 115 and 120. What happem, theag to a child with average ability in such a setting? Although he might have competed successfuRy in an ordi- nary school, he is in the lower 15 percent at Einstein Elementary. My point is this: success is not absolute, it is relative. A child does not ask, I-low am I doing?" but rather, Iow am I doing com- pared to everyone else?" Little Johnny may grow up thinking he is a dummy when he would have been an intellectual leader in a less com- petitive setting. Thus, if a child is floundering in one academic environment for whatever reason, the solution might involve a transfer to a more suitable classroom. QUESTION..
