Extension Carrie Ann Olson County Extension Flucator 839-2518 or 1-800-279-2518 AVOIDING THE TEST In the dog world, the retriever breeds stand out in their ability to identify a falling object and to retrieve that object regardless of the distance and obstacles. In fact, tests are done for retrievers to measure their ability to do so. The judges of such events set up tests where dogs must cross ditches, crawl through brush, and swim all while maintaining a straight line to their objective. Occasionally a dog will circle the obstacles instead of going through them. When this happens, a judge might rule that the dog "avoided the test". How often do we allow and even help kids "avoid the test"? As kids grow they are repeatedly faced with testsevery day. Kids grow in maturity as they successfully complete each test. Here are some examples of tests kids might face and parents who got in the way. * An intellectual test, A librarian was asked one day by a parent to check the availability of audiocassettes of books her daughter needed to read during the course of the year. Fortunately, the titles in question were not available on cassette so this parent hit a dead end in helping her daughter avoid the test. * A test of character. When a young person makes an agreement, will they stick with it when put to the test? When they break the agreement do they face the consequences in a mature manner? A young woman I once knew broke one of her agreements and consumed alcohol during a 4-H event. While she was ready to admit this to me, her parents stepped in to defend her. They interfered with the test and there is evidence that the lesson went unlearned. Here's another one. It's been shown over and over through research that kids who postpone sexual activity do better m they are also put to the test. One of the things they learn from the test is putting aside immediate desires in favor of long-term gain. Yet we have examples of parents helping and even encouraging their teens to he sexually active. They are helping their kids avoid a very important test. * A physical test. A kid out for a sport needs to learn that practice and training is in their own best interests if they want to do well in that sport. It is largely a test in self motivation. The best athletes are motivated to work hard during their practice time. They look for opportunities outside practice to further develop their skills. Other athletes look for opportunities to avoid working hard and wait for a coach or somebody else to motivate from the outside. In 4-H we require kids to start their animal science projects no later than May. Testing happens daily as they work with their dogs, horses or other animals. There are opportunities for testing on problem solving, perseverance,, creativity, level- headedness, sportsmanship and much more. Their knowledge is tested and expanded as they deal with training problems, and health. The longer they are involved with a project the better the test of their skills and the more likely they are to develop new attitudes. Parents and kids who understand the purpose for these projects strive for a longer learning period and many kids start their projects long before they need to. Avoiding life's tests gains nothing and can cause a delay in growth and development. Most of life's tests will be repeated until learned and as adults, we can help by keeping kids focused on their tets.
