The centerpiece of the governor's legislative agenda this year, a multifaceted effort to assure that fathers make their child-support payments, got a boost yesterday from a state Senate committee.The Judicial Proceedings Committee unanimously sent to the full Senate a comprehensive child-support enforcement bill that includes among its provisions a measure to require unmarried fathers to acknowledge their paternity in writing within hours of the birth of their children.The House Judiciary Committee killed a similar proposal last month, but aides to Gov. William Donald Schaefer say they hope that committee will reconsider the issue if the Senate sends over its bill.

When you do go, go when there aren't a lot of other kids there.* If an older child is going to talk about school to your child, act as an interpreter. Comments like, "If you don't behave, you get sent to the principal," could be scary.* Some books to read with your kindergartner-to-be: "Will I Have a Friend?"

Think of a child you care about, then consider the effect on similar children if the House of Representatives succeeds in changing laws regulating foster care and other ways of protecting children from abuse and neglect.Would you want the fate of a child you care about to rest with an agency that could not express in writing why foster care is better than the home from which the child was removed?Would you commit a young life to a system so backward in its record-keeping that it cannot create a computer file of the child's case?

Editor's note: Jerdine Nolen writes today about ways to encourage successful child-parent communications. Her column appears biweekly. The relationship between our children and ourselves is vital to our children's success in school, in social relationships and in the wide world. Setting up this talking and listening exchange can be one of the most important things we do to mold and shape their becoming well-informed, educated people. We have numerous opportunities to key in on getting them to respond positively to learning within the classroom.

A Pennsylvania man was killed and his two-year-old child was injured Tuesday when the pair fell from an Ocean City sea wall onto rocks below, police said Wednesday. Stephen Richard Ostan, 49, of Marcus Hook, Pa., and his child were walking along a retaining wall at the Ocean City inlet when they fell over the edge together, witnesses told police, beach patrol and fire personnel who arrived on the scene about 3 p.m. Following the fall, in which police believe Ostan suffered a severe head injury and the child suffered non-life-threatening injuries, an unidentified woman climbed down the wall and pulled the child, who was clinging to rocks, from the water, police said.

Editor's Note: Jerdine Nolen continues her series on Multiple Intelligences with a discussion of Interpersonal Intelligence. Humans need to connect and bond with one another. Being part of a team or a group and working alongside others can yield wonderful experiences for many of us. A child who adapts well to such circumstances may fall under a type of learning Howard Gardner (renowned for his theory of Multiple Intelligences) calls "Interpersonal Intelligence" -- the ability to perceive and make distinctions in the moods, intentions, motivations and feelings of other people.

Ryan C. Gifford had used a lot of heroin that day and drank wine and other alcohol, his lawyer said. "He was high pretty much the entire evening," said his lawyer, Lee McNulty. That is why his client had no recollection, he said, of assaulting, burning and sexually abusing a 21-month-old child on an April night last year, acts that doctors said almost killed the toddler and for which Gifford received a 50-year prison sentence — half of it suspended — in a Westminster courtroom Thursday.
