Change Children’s Lives Overnight: January 7, 2012 Children’s Brain/Body Balancing Workshop in Albuquerque

TEACHERS – PARENTS – COUNSELORS – ADMINISTRATORS – MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS – CAREGIVERS

I would like to invite you to a workshop that can change children’s lives overnight. Children’s Brain/Body Balancing is for every teacher, counselor, administrator, parent, and caregiver who would like to help children learn how to self-regulate, and feel calm and focused, without medication. The simple movements can help a child regulate herself/himself in under a minute! The workshop promises to be a day filled with new tools and a new vision of childhood growth and development.

Please join me on Saturday, January 7, 2012 in Albuquerque for the Level One Children’s Brain/Body Balancing Workshop. It will revolutionize your ideas of child behavior, growth, development, and self-regulation.

Create a real change for children in America! Contact me at 949-468-9841 or email me at solutions4kids@yahoo.com.
Sincerely,

School Bullying and a new Occupy Movement

I think the issue of bullying is much larger than we think. Children imitate what they see. That’s one of the most important ways they learn, particularly in the case of social behavior. Bullying cannot exist on its own in children. They learn it by imitating the adults around them who coerce them in many, many ways – at home with parental abuse, in schools with abuse by teachers, administration, and counselors (I witnessed this firsthand in the 70s and wrote an expose on it), being forced to take drugs that make them feel sick and have horrible adverse effects, and so on. Please note that I’m not objecting to setting healthy disciplinarian guidelines. I’m talking about abuse. Bullying is abuse being passed on by children who themselves have been abused in many ways and are being told that abuse is “for their own good”.

Add to this picture a world where Big Agra, Big Pharma, Big Banks, Big Oil, and Govt control so much of our lives and get away with horrible abuses. Small farms being destroyed, the right to fresh water being taken over by corporations, cars and industries that pollute the environment and cause multiple diseases, investment bank CEOs causing large scale financial destruction without being prosecuted. No wonder the Occupy Movement is growing. We want a voice. And children’s voices are the most stifled of all. No wonder children lash out at other children. They’re angry. They have a right to be. Maybe children should start an Occupy Movement in schools and demand the right to speak freely and openly, the right to be treated respectfully and with kindness, the right to the best education, and the right to be who they are and mature at their own pace without being drugged or coerced.
