THE ISSUE OF SAFETY IN OUR SCHOOLS…
In the wake of the latest school shooting are left many grieving families, of
which I send my heart felt condolences. Truly, we live in a world where it is
hard to identify real threats, separate fact from fiction, or genuineness,
from agenda. So as we examine how this happened, why this happened, will
it happen again, and how we “act” after a “crisis” I propose embracing and
teaching as much wisdom to our children as possible. Clearly, schools are
becoming a place of high anxiety for children and parents. I write this
today as an encouragement to all parents, that we are not powerless in this.
We have options. Perhaps home schooling for some, or private schools for
those who are capable. For so many of us neither of those are options.
Collective wisdom among students. Household to household I encourage
every parent to launch a focused campaign to teach their children even
better interpersonal skills, how to watch for signs of mental or emotional
distress among their fellow students, never to bully, or verbally abuse
classmates, and to advise teachers, counselors, and principals, when they
observe any of those things. It is unfortunate that this has become the
adjustments must be made, and a big part of my philosophy is the
best way to deal with anxiety is to attack what you have control over.
Teaching and preparing our children is something we always have control
over. I have written a tremendous amount about this subject in my book
I encourage everyone to get a copy of this book not just because I wrote it
but because what’s in it is information I have used to keep my family,
friends, and students safe. My philosophy is unique, filled with profound
truths. To see several examples of this simply browse my post archives.
There is so much vital information in this book dealing with safety on every
level, work, home, vacationing, social media and so much that will surprise
you because you have never considered it… Thanks for reading I pray for
safety and security for you and your family.
