By Ann Schauber Extension Service Early one Sunday morning when my daughter was four years old, I walked into her bedroom to find her standing in front of her closet with her hands on her hips and exclaim- ing to the clothes, "Crap! I have nothing to wear!" Now that she is 12, I catch a glimpse of how she brushes her hair, puts her napkin in her lap or sits in a chair. Her mannerisms in many cases are just like mine. When did I teach her these things? Even more important, what am I teaching her? I no longer make expletive state- ments aloud in front of my clothes closet. She cured me of that when she was four. But how did she learn all these things? I did not give her lessons or talks on how to do these things. My son walks with the same stride as my husband walks. He worries about how the next day of school will go just like I worry about my next day at work. Both of my kids tap their tooth brushes on the sink after brushing their teeth, just like my husband does. Now there are three people who drive me crazy at teeth brushing time! When I observe these behaviors in my children and take a moment to reflect on them, I realize the power of a parent. Simply by being with the child, the child is learning about how to be. There is no classroom or study rules or homework. It is simply living out our daily lives together. Children, just like all of us, learn by soaking it all in. We as parents are teaching just by being there with ,vior of the kids. Most of the time, neither of us are aware that we are teaching and learning from one another. We teach our values and our culture to our children in this very same way. My husband and I try to work out our conflicts by talking through them so that we can under- stand the other's point of view. In those moments when we're deep into a discussion, we do not realize that somewhere in the background are our children who are watching and listening. At a later time, I may walk into my son's bedroom and see both my children there on the bed working through a disagreement. At first, I didn't know how they had learned these skills and then I realized that they learned by soaking it in. Now that my children are approaching their teen years, their influences will broaden. However, I believe that the parents are still the primary teachers in a teen's life. A parent just doesn't always find evi- dence of their influence until the teen years pass. At least that was the case with my teen-age foster son. It wasn't until after he left us and came back to visit that I realized that we did have some positive influence on his life. He was soak- ing in the things we did. He just didn't show us that he did until after he left and came back. The lesson for me is that as a parent I have to be conscious of how I think, feel and act around my children. Is this how I want my children to be? If I model behavior that I find objectionable in my children, I have no one to blame except myself. uation up 15% in Yamhill County's assessed value totals nearly $2.9 billion-~an increase of almost $380 million ill the past year. The city of Carlton's value grew 34 percent, the most of any region in the county, Yamhill and Amity valuations jumped 25 percent. The west end of the county, tic cities of Sheridan and Willamina, grew at 14 percent. The central areas of the county--Dundee, Day- ton and Lafayette--grew at 18 per- cent while McMinnville and New- berg both increased 15 percent. There are variations in value increases on residential properties in each city, depending on the sales activity in the respective neighbOr" hoods. In general, higher priced neighborhoods increased less because this real estate market haS slowed somewhat when compared to the previous year. Properties under $130,000 still are active in the real estate market. Assessor's records indicate that the average selling price of single" family home in Yamhiil County is $92,500. West McMinnville, at $118,000, has the highest average sale price of both new and used single family residential inventor~ If property valuations did not increase more than 15 percent, tl~ year's taxes will be the same or W's than last year. The average city rate is $16.78 per $1,000 of assessed value. The average rural tax rate is $13.20. According to Oregon Law, assessor must appraise property at 1 O0 percent market value as of July 1 each year. Gratia B.
