Click Sarcasm is a mean form of communication and it's an indication that you are angry about something. When you are being sarcastic, it's because you are hurting inside and possibly angry about something and you just want to get back at that person that has hurt you. Words are like seeds you plant in the ground. You can not get good fruit from bad seed that has been planted. When you speak negatively and bad words towards others, be prepared to reproduce negative results.
Think about this; when you open your mouth and sarcasm comes out, what does that communicate to the person you are talking to? It communicates that you are hurt about something and you're possibly being defensive about something. When someone tells you that your are being sarcastic and what's coming out of your mouth is offensive to them, and you're response is "No I'm not", "No it's not" or "I didn't Mean anything by it." Consider this, "Yes you are, and yes you did mean to hurt that person", that is why you said it to begin with. Most time when we speak out of emotions, we are revealing what our hearts truly feel.
There are some people that struggle with thinking positive or saying positive things for many reason. Maybe throughout their journey they've been hurt, or put down. When you behave in like manner, it reveals what's really going on inside of you. When the Lord gets tough, take some time out to regroup, and talk with the someone you trust. Ask for guidance and help. We don't always think it's, but just maybe a change is needed. Use your words in a positive ways; to encourage, strengthen and build others up. Words are powerful. They could either build you up, or tear you down. Are you building people up, or are you tearing them down by what you say? Think about it....its time to make a change. Sarcasm hurts!!! to edit.
Just a fast fact for a child who may be struggling academically or behaviorally in school. There could be multiple reason why your child may be acting out. There could be so much going on inside of his brain and he lacks the ability to effectively communicate what it may be. We have to stop looking at the child as just being a problem child, or child that does not like to listen well.
Many children with sensory processing disorders struggle in ways we could never imagine. They are contending with so many sensory inputs at one time that it become overwhelming, and short of an overlod, which causes their behavioral meltdowns. My son has sensory processing disorder. On of the major deficits he struggled with is auditory processing disorder. What's very frustrating is that you can not see his disability and to the natural eye it doesn't exist.
Because of this disorder, a child can be a superior reader (which Josiah is) but struggle in the classroom because his auditory system is out of balance. He can have perfect hearing (which Josiah does) but still not be able to process all of what a teacher is saying. Book learning is not a problem specifically, but learning in general is a challenge because he is not effectively processing Verbal Instruction.
Imagine being in a crowded room where everyone is talking, horns are blowing, paino is playing, baby is crying, someone is laughing, chairs are scratching the floor.... And all this is going on at the same time, and you hear it all. How can you make sense of what you need to focus on, or what's being said or directed at you. You can't! It becomes difficult, overwhelming, too loud and stress. Now just imagine not being able to escape that noise and you're being force to stay in it and deal with it. Well you will fight your way out; thus and emotional, physical and aggressive meltdown occurs.
So I say to you, don't be afraid to dig deeper, and find the root cause of your child's problem. You can change your child's life for the better if you're just not afraid to face the facts!
I hope this has helped someone....
I guess neighborhood bicycling is the "Hot New Thing," right about now for our teens. As I cruised through the neighborhoods this afternoon, all I seen were gangs of youth, everywhere, riding their bikes, enjoying themselves, doing bike tricks etc., and allowing the beauty of this day to take root in their souls. With so many young people dying by vehicular accidents, I couldn't help but to just stopped, honk my horn and wave over a group of young people who were out riding on their bikes. I felt led to tell them to enjoy themselves, and to have fun, but I wanted to stress my point, to be careful and respectful to others while doing so.
What scared me, and had me worried was the way they just rode out into the traffic; cutting people off and cars cars as well, very hap-hazardously. What I did appreciate about how this gang of eight boys responded when I pulled them over, was that they were very mannerly and respectful in their approach towards me. Their simple response was, "Yes! We will be careful and thank you." They even told me to enjoy my day! Why and I sharing this, you may be wondering....
Well, I think it's important to acknowledge the positive strengths and characteristics of our youth. All of them are not just destructive and disrespectful individuals. They're simply young people, who are interested in just living, and having a little fun. I believe that with proper guidance, and direction, they will follow your directives, while respecting you in the process. We can not be afraid to, speak to our youth, redirect them, confront them when necessary, and encourage them because they need to know and want to know which way they should go.
Today was about innocent neighborhood fun. When I addressed that group of eight teenage boys this afternoon, it instantly made me feel like I made the "Right Decision". That decision was me simply stopping, and speaking to those boys; but speaking to them with kindness, care and concern. We can save our youth, from hurt, harm, danger and destruction....but we must be willing to speak up! It's my Community Call to Action. What are you going to do?
April is Autism Awareness Month. My goal is to spread awareness to everyone about this developmental disability, known as ASD or Autism Spectrum Disorder. Autism affects 1 in every 68 individuals. More boys are affected by this disorder than girls. Research shows that it is four to five times more likely to occur in boys than in girls. Currently, there is no single cause or known cure for Autism Disorder, just as there is no one type of autism. Over the last five years, scientists have identified a number of rare gene changes, or mutations, associated with autism. A small number of these are sufficient to cause autism by themselves. Most cases of autism, however, appears to be caused by a combination of autism risk genes and environmental factors.
