To the Editor:—  Giving the title "A Woman's Place..." to my letter (JAMA189:645 [Aug 24] 1964) concerning "Residency Training in Psychiatry for Physician Mothers" (JAMA189:11 [July 6] 1964) permits the general impression that I believe a woman's place is in the home. I don't. I simply believe that the home is far and away the best place to learn child psychiatry. I regret the time I wasted trying to get "further training" while Nanny took care of my children. Fortunately, Nanny left. Studying the dreams of others is less educational than coping with the real needs of one's own children. To pretend otherwise is schizophrenogenic.
