The damage pornography did to a six-year-old child

Posted on by

first_imgStuff co.nz 7 February 2016Walker, who is now a respected director of sex education programmes for young people in Australia, warns that there are children whose brains are being rewired by their exposure to porn, whose whole understanding of sex is porn, and who think it is OK to be abusive to women.To facilitate an open conversation between parents and primary school children about explicit images they may have seen, Walker has written a book called Not For Kids! which will be launched at the UNSW Pornography and Harms To Children and Young People seminar on Tuesday.“I know what it’s like as a six-year-old to see stuff and think I’m going to get in trouble if I talk about it,” Walker said.“We already have a generation of kids who view degrading violent sex as the norm – devoid of connection, intimacy and love. If somebody doesn’t speak out soon we are staring down the barrel of tomorrow’s sex offenders and a barrage of intimate partner violence.”The Senate is currently holding an inquiry into the harm being done to Australian children through access to pornography on the Internet.Australian Childhood Foundation chief executive Dr Joe Tucci​ said the easy accessibility of graphic pornography is “creating a generation of children that has a range of problems with sexual behaviour”.Tucci, who will also speak at the UNSW seminar, said children as young as six are being exposed to online porn, either by accident, as part of a grooming process, or by friends or older siblings. “They are too young to understand what it means,” he said.READ MORE: http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/life/76656458/the-damage-pornography-did-to-a-sixyearold-childlast_img read more

Over sixty educators are better prepared to impart knowledge on information communication technology to their students having successfully completed a workshop organized by the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development.Four Canadian teachers; Bev Knutson Shaw, Shelley Friesen, Darlene Hubber, and Joni Turville as well as Dominican Corazon Durand facilitated this two week workshop for sixty three (63) educators.The teachers were encouraged by Senior Planning Officer in the Ministry of Education, Ted Serrant to use the tools which they were exposed in the workshop to make the learning experience for their students a “fun” one. “I am sure that your students will look forward to what you have learnt in the coming weeks and our prayer is that we will begin to see some of the tools that you’ve used, or been exposed to, over those two weeks, used in your classroom”.He implored them further that the information and skills which they received could be beneficial in their “personal and also professional development”.Serrant noted however, that in order for the teachers to “really rip the benefits” of the workshop experience, it is imperative that they “continue to explore” ICT tools.“Find a computer wherever you can find one; if you can afford, buy one, there are a number of them in public places around here. It is essential that you find those computers, those other tools and that you continue what you have learnt, that you actually utilize what you have learnt, because as you learn you become more comfortable, and you also develop and appreciate the power and capacity of those tools for working smartly, but also becoming proficient as its use”.Chief Education Officer, Stephenson Hyacinth, complimented the teachers for their commitment towards the teaching profession and their excellence in teaching.“We need to be proud of our teachers in Dominica. After having gone through a challenging year, a year of ups and downs, many things that happened during the year that you did not really expect, the unforeseen circumstances that you had to deal with, and when you are given some vacation you’re asked that you need to attend an ICT workshop. Some of you I guess may have frowned, some of you may have said again, but nevertheless you showed your commitment to the teaching service of Dominica by attending this workshop for the past two weeks and I need to compliment you for your great effort”.He stated further that their participation in the workshop demonstrates their “commitment to teaching, commitment to the children of Dominica, commitment to building an education system that is characterized by excellence”. According to Hyacinth, these workshops are part of the Ministry of Education’s vision that every child can succeed.“We in the Ministry of Education have adopted the vision that every child can succeed and workshops like these help us to achieve that vision, because I am certain that the things you have learnt here will impact upon teaching and learning processes at our schools in the new school year”. One of the Canadian facilitators also complimented the teachers for their ability to use limited resources to teach their students.[nggallery id= 204] Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Decatur County Traffic Safety Partnership (TSP) issues 110 citations, 10 arrests during ‘Click It or Ticket’

Posted on by

first_imgGreensburg, In. — Over 24 days, Decatur County TSP issued 110 citations and made 10 arrests as part of the national “Click It or Ticket” mobilization. Indiana law requires the driver and all passengers to buckle up.More than 230 Indiana law-enforcement agencies joined thousands across the nation to enforce seat-belt laws in cars and trucks, for both children and adults, in the front seat and back, both day and night. The overtime, highly visible traffic patrols were supported with federal traffic safety funds administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.“We enforce seat belts and other traffic laws to protect the lives of our community members on the road,” said local law-enforcement leaders. “With the summer travel season now underway, remember to always buckle up – every trip, every time – and use a sober driver.”Don’t be a statisticHoosiers are more likely to suffer property damage, injuries or death in a traffic crash than be a victim of burglary, violent crime or murder, respectively. And the small number of Hoosier motorists (6.6 percent) who still don’t buckle up make up more than half of roadway deaths.Male drivers, particularly those age 15-44, are the least likely to be buckled during a crash. Injury rates among unrestrained motorists are also higher:In rural counties,When a driver is speeding or impaired, and/orOn weekend nights between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m.More seat-belt statistics are online here.  Buckle up for your familyDon’t just buckle up for yourself; think about your friends and family. During a crash, unrestrained passengers can become projectiles that injure or kill others in the car.Parents who don’t buckle themselves up are more likely to have unbuckled kids. That means one ticket for the driver and one for each unrestrained child under 16.Traffic crashes are a leading killer of children ages 1 to 13. The back seat is the safest place for children under 13 to ride.Indiana law requires all children under age 8 to be properly restrained in child car seat or booster seat.Choose the safest car seat for your child’s height and weight with this tool.Find a certified car-seat safety technician to assist with installation and proper usage here or through the SaferCar app on the App Store or Google Play.Seat-belt tipsWhat is the best way to reduce your chances of injury or death? Buckle up! Below are tips for proper seat-belt use:Secure the lap belt across your hips and pelvis, below your stomach.Place the shoulder belt across the middle of your chest and rib cage, away from your neck.Never put the shoulder belt behind your back or under an arm.If your seat belt doesn’t fit you, or you have an older car with lap belts only, ask your dealer or vehicle manufacturer about seat-belt adjusters, extenders or retrofits.last_img read more

Phoenix Rising School’s Friday Workshops Bring Real World Skills, and Joy,…

Posted on by

first_imgFacebook23Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Phoenix Rising School“It is a problem that so many children love learning and hate school,” says Nick Gillon, The Phoenix Rising School’s Education Director. “It’s a problem when rich, rigorous, relevant and engaging experiences have become the exception rather than the norm.” At heart, he says, the issue is one of equating ‘learning’ with ‘schooling’, and academic schooling at that.But learning encompasses many other skills which are applicable in everyday life, which is why every Friday, Phoenix students from kindergarten through 6th grade get the chance to participate in workshops that run the gamut from crochet to canning, bmx bikes to propulsion science, and acrogym to candle making. The result is enthusiasm, new skills, pride in their work and – dare we say it? – joy.“I don’t know many schools that make homemade spaghetti, bike ride, weave, do pickling and lots of other things,” says Pyrenees, age ten. “This way kids can learn about things that they love,” explains Chatalain, also age ten. “Sometimes if you just get assigned something, you don’t want to be there. When you can choose it, you can easily feel like, ‘I love this because I chose it and I knew what I wanted to do.’”Students find that the skills they pick up in workshops transfer nicely to the rest of their lives. “If you didn’t know how to ride a bike and you took the biking workshop, you would know how to do that skill,” says Helen, a third grader. “And cooking, that’s something we can use every day.”For teachers, workshops offer a chance to teach a subject they’re passionate about. “I get to choose something that I’m really interested in, so it’s not like actually working because I have so much fun,” says 3rd and 4th grade teacher Megan Moskwa, who has taught canning, soap making, candle making and more.“Seeing kids get excited about making blackberry jam really makes my day,” Audrey Goodwin-Arpin concurs. Four days a week she teaches K-1, but on Fridays she has offered acrogym, crochet, jewelry making, knitting and most recently, cooking. “If I like something and I do it in my own life, I transfer that passion to them,” she says.Students and teachers also get an opportunity to mix with people they wouldn’t normally see. According to Miles, a first grader, “You can get to know other people better.” The different grouping of students add to the feeling of a village, says Audrey. “When I see the students outside at recess, I’ve already been their teacher. There’s a different level of respect and a feeling that we’re responsible for all of them, not just the ones in our class. It’s also a way to keep track of the ones that I’ve already had that have moved on from my class.”Here are some of the workshops that have been taught at Phoenix Rising over the last three years:bmx bikesartfairy housescandle makingsoccercookingsurvival skillsacrogymadvanced electronicssoap makingweavingKorean languagepuppetspianotheaterpotterycartoonjournalismjewelry makingimprovsinginglamp makingcreative dramagardeningfiber artsliving historydanceschool beautifulrace carswater colorcarpentryhandbuilt potteryanimepropulsion scienceoutdoor educationdigital photo and videolast_img read more
