One early customer remarked, "This building looks great. It's amazing what you've done here." Indeed it is. And most was done by senior citizens. The central gazebo was con- structed by local carpenter, Mike Sumpter. Other local merchants, electricians and an off-duty policeman con- tributed their efforts. The gazebo, cover nd curtains Parents, don "t Some children learn very early to play games with adults. According to Margaret Movius, Washington State Universi- ty's King County extension agent, games often make parents or'grandparents the "goat." If these games had names, they'd be called "1 dare you to get me to bed tonight," "i'll bet you can't get me to eat," or "You can't make me wear those clothes."

They had about one-quarter yard left over. The hexagon cut-outs lef- tover from the gazebo became shelves. But they haven't cut on quality in merchandise. The local artists work and some professional works are good quality. The cosmetics are nationally known. With low overhead and a good line of merchandise. From lssaquah With Love hopes to make a good source of income for area seniors and for Issaquah Valley Seniors as an organization. The concept of the enter- prise is new. Senior citizens own and operate the organization. Whenever a customer makes a purchase they are asked if they have a sponsor. They can give the name of a senior citizen, say a mother, grandmother, or friend which starts an ac- count in that name. Twenty per cent of the pro- fit goes into tfiat senior's ac- count. When it reaches $5 they get a check From lssa- quah With Love.

Parents need to learn when they are being us- ed to play this kind of game; they need to decide when to call off the game playing. Remember, a two year old doesn't plan these games with malice in mind. He or she is just exploring life, checking on the amount of independence that's allowed, and enjoying the attention that perhaps, sadly enough, can't be gotten any other way. It's up to adults to decide whether to stop the game or join in the fun. But, once the decision is made, stick with it. Parents may decide a regular bedtime is important both for them and their children. Then, be firm. Parents may decide to stop the mealtime game by letting children choose, within limits, what to eat.

Maybe he has too much energy to rest, or the hour before bedtime has been too exciting to settle down quickly. Maybe she just doesn't like creamed corn, or Daddy said he wouldn't eat creamed corn. Or maybe, the fuss caused by a "game" is the only way children can get their parents' attention. Whatever the case, parents must decide which games are being plann- ed and what to do about them.
