Education can be spelled with the same keyboard as can RACISM

It is easy to pontificate and blow hot air about all that is wrong with this world, especially inventing reasons why it is all the Peace Officers fault for everything,

Just as it is a joke to hear about the injustice of the education system in place.

We have people who have professed to be of the Clergy who have brought slander and shame to themselves and the ones that identify with these people that promote racial unrest and incite riots in our country.  I can’t help but add the names of public figures, who slander the name of MENTOR and ROLE MODEL when Children need them most.

We have the BULLY MAKER in front of us, with our fingertips on the keys.

We have the CLOUD at our fingertips.

BUT WE ALSO HAVE THE WHOLE WORLD’S KNOWLEDGE IN THIS SAME KEYBOARD, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS WANT IT. 

WHEN YOU GO TO SCHOOL, THE TEACHERS COVER A SUBJECT 1 TIME. BUT WHEN YOU WANT SOMETHING BAD ENOUGH THAT INSTEAD OF BULLYING SOMEONE, YOU START STUDYING ONLINE,  YOU MIGHT JUST REALIZE THAT YOU COULD MAKE VIDEOS OF YOUR RESOURCES AND WATCH IT MANY TIMES.

BUT FROM NOW ON, ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY  FOR YOUR OWN ACTION. 

AND JUST SO YOU KNOW, WHY DON’T YOU RESEARCH THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF PEACE OFFICERS THAT STUMBLE AND MAKE WHAT MILLIONS OF US DO EVERYDAY, AND THAT IS A MISTAKE.  NOW COMPARE THAT TO ANY AND ALL RACES OF EVERYDAY LAWBREAKERS.

 

 

NEVER Shake A Baby

When Your Baby Won’t Stop Crying

Shaken Baby Syndrome occurs when a baby is shaken. The blood vessels in a baby’s head cannot tolerate the impact of shaking and can break.

  • Each year about 1,000 children die from Shaken Baby Syndrome.
  • Death, brain damage, mental retardation, seizures, or blindness may result from shaking a baby.
  • Shaking usually happens when parents or caregivers become frustrated or angry when they are not able to stop the baby from crying.
  • Shaken baby syndrome is 100% preventable.

Comforting a crying baby: Know when to seek help

If the stress or crying becomes more than you can stand, or if you feel like shaking, hitting or harming your baby in any way, call for help immediately.

In the U.S.:

  • 24-Hour Parent Helpline: 1-888-435-7553
  • Crying Baby Hotline: 1-866-243-2229
  • Fussy Baby Warmline: 1-888-431-BABY

In the UK:

  • Parentline: 0808 800 2222
  • Parent Lifeline: 0114 272 6575

In Australia:

  • Parentline: 1300 30 1300

In Canada:

  • Parent Help Line: 1-800-668-6868

If you constantly feel overwhelmed and the feeling doesn’t go away, you probably need some outside help. Additionally, if you are feeling like you can’t pick up on your baby’s cues or your baby isn’t alert enough to engage in the early milestone behaviors, it is important to seek help as soon as possible. Problems that are identified right away can almost always be solved.

Special circumstances that might require professional help

Physical, mental, or emotional challenges at birth, or soon after, are often traumatic to an infant and can cause your baby’s nervous system to get “stuck.” A nervous system that is stuck will probably have difficulty with regulation, which means the baby will have a hard time settling down.

Special or traumatic circumstances that might cause problems include:

  • Premature birth
  • Difficult or traumatic birth
  • Medical problems or disability
  • Adoption or separation from primary caregiver

Where to go for help when your baby won’t stop crying

If your baby is crying or upset often, or unresponsive, you should seek help from your pediatrician or a child development specialist. Your pediatrician should be able to recommend a specialist in early infant behaviors to help you figure out if there is a problem and what to do about it. Alternately, contact the pediatrics branch in your local hospital and ask about services in your area, such as:

  • Parenting skills classes. Available in many areas, coaching and education for parents and caregivers can build necessary parenting skills and offer support and advice.
  • Support groups. Run by peers rather than professionals, support groups provide a safe environment to share experiences, advice, encouragement, and coping strategies for parents of babies who won’t stop crying.

Missouri Daycare under investigation

Daycare under investigation after worker accused of child abuse

http://www.kspr.com/news/local/daycare-under-investigation-after-worker-accused-of-child-abuse/21051620_31658046

NIXA, Mo. – The video is what has one mother fed up and frustrated. It’s surveillance video from Ready, Set, Learn Daycare in Nixa. That’s where she saw what she says was child abuse happening right in front of her eyes.

“She runs over to him, picks him up by his left forearm and drags him the full length of the room, his feet are dragging on the floor, and she picks him, slams him in the chair, she slams him again, and his head hit the wall,” said Mother Megan Harris.

The video shows what happens to the two-year-old next.

“She pulled him by the hood of his shirt, hit him, hit him with a broom, pushed him down at nap time, he tried to get up and she forced his head down in the cot and smacked him a couple of times, so it was literally six hours of hell,” said Harris.

That two year old in the video is her son, and it’s left Megan Harris in tears since that day.

“It was like an all day torture,” said Harris.

Another worker saw it happening, reported it to police, and officers showed her that video.

“The minute I got to him, I checked his arm and he did have bruising on his left arm,” said Harris.

The daycare worker was arrested, but Megan went to the state. In the Department of Social Services report, it states that her son hit another kid first, and that’s when the daycare worker did what was in the video, but that worker is not sitting in jail now, so we went to her house.

She didn’t talk to us, but she did tell Social Services why she did it.

She stated she grabbed the two year old’s arm, and quote “put him in time out harshly because she wanted him to know she was in control.” She says his head did hit the wall, but quote “it was not hard,” but social services found that it was quote “physical abuse”.

We took the report straight to the daycare, but that’s when they told us this.

“The state is handling it, everything’s’ taken care of.”

The director of the daycare says the owner is in talks with attorneys, but refused to say anything more than that worker has been fired.

“The day it happened the worker was let go.” but Megan wants something more. “She shouldn’t be running a daycare.” Because she says she doesn’t want what happened in this video to happen to anyone else.

We talked with the Christian County prosecutors office. So far the woman accused of the abuse in January still has not been charged. They say right now the case is still under advisement.
