Toward Adjustment

Eckert, Ralph G.
April 1950
Education Digest;Apr1950, Vol. 15 Issue 8, p6
The article cites a report by Ralph G. Eckert, published in the "California Journal of Secondary Education," about how teachers can help students adjust. Teachers must examine how they could help students come to terms with their own feelings and understand why they feel as they do. Teachers must remember the way they felt as children, toward their parents, other children and other aspects of life. Teachers must also help young people see that happiness in marriage results not from finding the right person but from becoming the right person. With this, teachers can be assured that they have help children become more cooperative sons and daughters, more mature husbands and wives and more understanding fathers and mothers.
