Just read on the nine website how the US is changing Aspergers and taking it out of the medical.
I have a few friends who have grandchildren and Children with this problem.
They need all the help they can get. They don’t need government ot medicals, telling them it isn’t happening
to their family members.
Will they say next people don’t get cancer its all in the mind, but then that was on 60 minutes. Pain without
surgery. SOme can be reapired that way but not all
At my Granddaughters primary school she is year 1, nearly 7 they are not allowed to hug each other, or the teacher
She gave her teacher, a pair of socks, I had knitted for her, They had to give a High 5.
I remember giving my teacher a present and I recieved a lovely hug. Nothing in it.December 2, 2012 at 5:21 pm #529354
there is worse to come i fear, the push is starting now with the environment, all these doctrines are driven by greek and aligned roman mythologies, where all the damage done to the planet is going to be blamed onto the poorer levels and the rich powerfull levels who made money declaring it was all what we demanded will be worshipped, they of course created the demand the middle classes yearned for.
dunno might be worth you checking out teh agenda 21 issue in the US, as i have heard their constitution ahs been amended much like the qld const’ was back in around 2001. not a plebiscite in site.
so the low end resource users who barely scrape through life are the real cause of climate change and starving peoples.

the teacher hugs, is more about protecting the teacher, we(teachers and support staff) are taught not to put ourselves in any position that could be construed as inappropriate.
I think the high five is a great idea, most kids love to do that.
I dont agree with the new US policy.December 3, 2012 at 11:54 am #529356
When I taught we were told not to touch the students as they are teenagers. I kept my distance and wouldn’t enter
a room of boys and the male teachers girls. Or we would enter a room where 2 teachers went. just for safety
I still think little kids need the touch, ALL the teachers int he lower school are women and even my granddaughters
teacher said when children fall over they need a hug to help them over the shock.
I do Breakfast club and one of the boys always has given a hug to the helpers. he doesn’t get it from his mother
she hits him and its lovely to see he can still need it. I said to him what are you going to do and he said still hug
ALl the little kids in the school all hug each other. :hug:
We give her lots of hugs as its what the doctor said to build up her self as she never recived it from her mother
I know about child abuse the teacher we had in High school ended up in jail for abusing a few girls.
He mainly targeted the ones who had to walk home As I had to leave quickly and go to the special school to
collect me sister I was spared the horror those girls went through. I think he got 10 years for his abuse.
That was in th elaste 60s when abusers got a good jail sentence not like today when thye get a pat on the back.December 3, 2012 at 12:14 pm #529357
once the rule of suitable punishment was removed (i got the cuts at times didn’t affect my life adversly) always respected teachers even into high school back then respected the police as well then after being bought up in a society culture of; respect all older than you cause any older person trouble, they could clip us behind the ear, as could the seargent of police(who then told dad who then had his imput) constables couldn’t, and teachers were authority pretty much 24/7.
the police in their then black cars, stopped me as i walked from school to ask about our neighbours address, i said they lived next door they gave me a lift (in those days the police were friends) but hey! mum was in shock and embarrasment her son(8) got out of a police car in full view of the neighbourhood, just not heard of hey, took her ages to explain it to the neighbourhood.
in those days can’t talk for the chuches but child molestation was a low occurance event, we could play around the streets (no parks in those days) and in the bush some around a swamp, don’t reccall any major say broken bone injuries and no child molesters or other driving around a suburb where when people went out they did not lock their doors and motehrs often went out and just called out to another neighbour to keep an eye on the kids ranging from 4 to 10 or so.
nearly all families attended a church on sunday, and the close neighbours men and women gathered in dads shed (no door) and drank a few bottles of cold beer bought from the icecream truck.
bring it all abck i say the new mythologies and regimes are tearing us apart.
never been in trouble before the law.
lets bring our communities back it is getting too late.

We had a guy hanging around our school in the 60s police were called we were warned to walk home in groups.
The neighbour girl was approached in her front yard again the 60s and then there was the end of high school break up with drunken teachers bragging about how many form 6 girls they slept with and one girl and a teacher left school,during that year.( no jail, no court case, no newspaper article…I dont know if it was the parents or the school board that sorted it out,but everyone at school knew)
I dont think there was ever a golden era except in peoples selective imaginations.
Just there was less off us,we had fewer distractions,less individualism and we didn’t talk about “things”.
The ignorance is gone and teachers not hugging is one of the things that comes with it.

We may talk and dream about what it was like in by gone years but those days will not come back. A new system has been brought in that controls every aspect of your lives. Whether it is medical, education, work, or religion over a period of 60 plus years, the populations have been programed and tricked into accepting what they have now. The only way anyone can achieve some of the old values is to more or less opt out of society as we know it. Not an easy choice but a lot more people today are thinking that way. Alternative living, gardening, energy etc and natural healing instead of the drugs from the chemical companies. Its not likely to get any better so be wise plan ahead for an alternative life style. :tup:December 3, 2012 at 11:45 pm #529360
I think its too much of a Sue the next person attitude now a days.
On the news a child in the US went to some Dolphine park. Was told not to life the bucket up and she did
The Dolphine scratched her so the parents are sueing the park.
It will come to a point where companies will be too scared to open for people like them.
A person here in SA went fishing on the South coast Signs everywhere the jetty wasn’t safe to fish from.
Idoit did and fell of sued the council. and won over $250,000, Wasn’t working at the time.
He lived in the Northern area and it was when he should of been looking for work not fishing.
I don’t mind people fishing but if you fall of somewhere that is storm damaged you take the chance and
not be able to sue.
We have someone down this way his wife said she fell over in Woolies and has hurt her back.
All the videos show, that she didn’t slip and fall but she is sueing the supermarket. But she is trying.
All it will mean is prices will increase.
I remember donkeying a friend a few weeks after I had an accident on my bike and ended up with stitches in my head
I was more scared the police was going to tell my father and I knew I would get a back hander as he had laid the
law down to me about donkeying.
I can count on 1 hand how many people got the cane in our schools both primary and high School. But the fear of
it happening made us think twice before we did anything wrong.
When I was 16 I had a reddy/brown hair and it was fashion to put purple in your hair and my Mum went off her tree
about it :woohoo: . She was mainly concerned about the neighbours. She made me go and wash my hair till it came out or I
had to wear at hat until it went. :cheer:December 5, 2012 at 1:13 pm #529361
Yeah I had to laugh at that myself ;
When I was younger I visited ‘SeaWorld’ with a friend (skipped school), and while I was there, I went to pet a Dolphin and it bit me. Gave me a bit of scare but I was fine.
Didn’t once to cross my mind to report the issue or complain.
It happened, I got scared, a bled a little… But meh.
I got hurt worse and lost more blood screwing around in trees or messing around on my skateboard or bike.
Kids aren’t delicate crystals, they can take a beating. I know… I was a kid once.
