ROUTE 30 WEST!

How to drive your kids crazy

Our children now have a list of "little things" we do that drive them crazy. And, kids being kids, that means they're already thinking up fierce countermeasures to get even with. Not that parents are in any real danger of losing the war of nerves so blithely referred to as the Parent-Child Relationship.

Teach your tadpole to swim

"Swimming comes as naturally as breathing to a small child." That's the belief of Crystal Scarborough, who has specialized for 38 years in teaching young children to swim. In our pictures, Mrs. Scarborough demonstrates her techniques with one of her "proofs," 3-year-old Jody Locklear.
