Believe it or not, no matter how wonderful and effective the presenter’s message and activities may be a great number of adults / parents may be offended just by personal feelings of rejection  “not being a good parent.”  I remember back in the days when I  heard many parents admitted in front of their children, their inadequacies  and lack of opportunity as a child for not  getting a good education.  Many things they didn’t learn; therefore would readily correct and demand diligence from their children for a better life.  Very few people are admitting any inadequacy  in today’s society.  Most of the reading materials are not written in a format that holds the attention of the parents who need it most, and a quick read.  It is impossible to relate to a parent or anyone who feels offended or inadequate.  Therefore, the approach must be “relationship focused” more so than teaching focused, or "telling focused."  Environment and facilitator / teacher are “key” for a successful parenting program.  Local church facilities could be an awesome location for familiarity, coupled with a “professional - humanitarian facilitator. “  All parent reading materials should be simple and loving  in language and relevant to their everyday challenges and experiences.  Most of the time, the information that is given to the parent who needs it most, language is “over their head” and does not connect.  That could be why certain “unprofitable – non classroom connecting - written materials” are read more frequently.  Most youth and adults are reading, question is: What are they reading?  My experience has been that approach is a very valuable resource for effective parenting.  Like the children, once a relationship has been earned, learning and advancement occurs for the entire family.  I strongly suggest (1) Availability of selective short, to the point, real life reading materials (2) Series of short “follow up” relating FREE speaker’s topics / films - with ending refreshment & fellowship (3) Give parents options for continued communication.  (4)  Teacher / staff do general “How are you doing?”  How can I assist you type follow up calls – Customer service.  Most importantly - respect the scheduling and time of the parents when planning such events. Always start on time and end on time, regardless of the number in attendance.    Read more in “School Readiness for Parents & Children, K-12   www.resolved-2010.com

 Chapter by chapter guidance is crucial for adults understanding the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs of  children, regardless of their ages.  All humans have the same needs.  It is urgent that parents and caregivers are able to differentiate needs vs. wants and understand the consequences for not meeting a human’s needs.  School Readiness for Parents & children, K-12 gives chapter by chapter, school life- answers according to Child Psychologist - Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

Children Love To Say...."I'M GONNA TELL MY DADDY!"

FATHERS - DO YOU KNOW HOW IMPORTANT YOUR NAME IS?
 
Many, many years ago my mother shared with me that a young lady's father had deceased.  Later in this young lady's life, as a teenager, an older man was speaking disrepectfully to her.   She looked at the man and said: "I'm gonna tell my Daddy!"  ... That man immediately left her alone and walked away!
 
Isn't it amazing how powerful a Father's NAME is!
 FATHERS, YOU ARE an essential part of the family!

EXCERPTS: Why Do Adults Disc Their PROBLEMS on Children?

Insecurities and distrust are rampant in relationships.  It is not uncommon to lose trust in someone, but relaying that information to someone else could have a devastating effect upon the person whom you choose to report  and discuss that information.  Sometime adults confide in their minor children.  Children do not process information in the same manner as adults. As a consequence, minor children  could fall into a false sense of loyalty and lose their emotional balance in the process. 
 
We can make it so much easier for children by being their adult caregiver / parent, and by seeking other trustworthy Christian adults for personal advice.  It is very simple:  Children have enough to manage as it is, and are thus not able to handle the adversities of adults.
Our ability to relate to and protect children will make a world of differences in their natural and spiritual growth and their abilitiy to handle their later adult struggles.

“Intentional Denial” or “Voluntary Dismissal” of Under Age Abusers ?

There seems to be a  madness on the rise.  It is called “Intentional Denial” or “Voluntary Dismissal” of under age abusers due to social status, popularity, and economics!   Much attention has been drawn to “school bullying.”   It appears to be a joke when, in many cases, parents encourage and allows home bullying among siblings.  Furthermore, some of the same parents are requesting emergency protection from public safety.  When this bullying behavior is carried into a disciplined, law abiding classroom – learning is hindered and the safety of everyone becomes at risk.  When children live in a society that does not provide fearful and undesirable alternatives for abusing not only their peers, but now adult -   URGENT ACTIONS MUST BE PUT INTO  PLACE.  SCHOOLS  have now become the target environment for adult abuse.   According to the developmental stages of children, a child’s age is determined by both chronological and, maturational;   meaning the child’s actual number age vs. the child’s maturation level.  A child’s actual age and appearance could be that of a fifteen year old, but emotionally, socially, or intellectually – has the actions and judgment of a nine year old. 
 
 
Why is it that the same crime can be administered between birthdays and the chronological eighteen year old child – now an adult, endures a harsh adult punishment because of his/her age?    In many ways, this eighteen year old is fearful and unprepared for life’s consequences because the adults, in their lives, were negligent in providing – age appropriate accountability.
 
Society gives children mainly two options for successful growth & development:  Parenting and Law Enforcement.   Social laws have nothing to do with emotional attachment.   Public safety reminds us:  “Do the Crime, Do the time!   We have wonderful, wonderful boys and girls who are in need of guidance.  Imagine the effect of mandatory (PAC) parental and child “Team Intervention /Back on Track” type of social law classes that includes an elevated curriculum for repeaters.   
 
It takes a whole village to raise a child.   When children disregard the respect to adults and are made to feel confident in their direct approach of such, intervention has become urgent!   The characteristics of adults are very different from those of children.  The law is designed to protect both.   Let’s become PRO-ACTIVE   as parents so we can guide our children with loving arms.     More issues are discussed in my new book:

GRADUATION! It's Time To Make A Difference.....

Remember to always thank your parents, teachers, and your high school counselors!
 
I was inspired initially by my parents and many supporting adult leaders. As life became more challenging, my high school counselor became my mentor for making hard decisions. Of all the students within my high school, I always believed that God sent her to my high school, … just for me!     Life is filled with many challenges.  Success is granted to those who refuse to give up.  Read many inspirational, real life stories in "Unresolved, The Blessings of A Resolved Lifestyle"  and "School Readiness for Parents & Children, K-12 "     @ www.resolved-2010.com

RELATING TO PARENTS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE - OUR KIDS!

Author's Written Response:  STILL TAKES A WHOLE VILLAGE  (Commercial Dispatch)
 
In my years of experience working in community action agencies, government funded skill programs, preschool entrepreneur, and long term high school educator; I have found that most parents are very caring about the educational, physical, and emotional needs of their children. The challenge becomes fostering a total environment (not just a class or workshop) of inclusion for parents of multiple economical, educational, cultural status. The academic atmosphere must reflect basic inclusion for parents:  Example:  (1) Most written and verbal communication may need to be modified to a lower grade level simply so the mass of parents will comprehend.  (2) Staff displaying genuine  character (social skills to parents of multiple mental, social, and physical handicaps).   Like students, parents must be recognized, held accountable by individuals /staff whom they admire, RESPECT, and love.  The same is true for the angry student who is upset about issues that has nothing to do with school. Address or solve the problem, then the student is ready to learn. Life is no bed of roses, but operating through a MASK misappropriates the solution. There isn't a quick fix for present day- educational concerns; yet, there remains a certainty, “WE NEED THE PARENTS NOW, and WE NEED TO build healthy relationships with students for the future success of our families and communities.”
 
It’s simple:  People respect sound, honest, consistent, FAIR character.  Discipline and correction must be shared and administered in “sincere love.”  AGAIN, this book was written with all of the above information in mind.  Fact are broken down and shared in a friendly styled voice and written in ‘SIMPLE” easy to relate – language;   Parent enjoy reading :  SCHOOL READINESS for PARENTS & CHILDREN, K-12  and appreciate the information shared.
