SUPERIORITY Part 2 of a 6 part series on Friendship & Bullying Special to the VB Herald by Marianne Vardalos

In the last issue of the VB Herald, I noted that most friendship conflicts between children are informed by five basic belief domains: superiority, injustice, vulnerability, distrust and helplessness. Roy Eidelson and Judy Eidelson (2003) studied several core beliefs that can push an individual toward conflict and concluded that these five appear to be the most important in informing personal attitude enough to both trigger and constrain conflict. In this, the second part of a six part series, we discuss superiority, and how the belief can determine behaviour and decision-making. When a child has an enduring belief in his or her own superiority, he or she possesses the conviction of being better than other people. Commonly associated with the notion of being better is that of being more important than others and a natural corollary is that a special person is more deserving than others. Such feelings of entitlement lead to the perception that the social rules everyone else follows are not applicable to them. And when some children play by the rules (share, wait your turn, mind your p’s & q’s) while others do not, conflicts ensue. Children generally learn quite young that in interactions with others, there needs to be a willingness from both parties, to compromise. However, children who believe they are superior to other children tend to struggle with friendships because they do not learn the lessons of concession and negotiation and remain unwilling to settle for any less than what they want and believe they deserve. They also lack empathy and the will to understand the viewpoints and experiences of the members of their peer group. Children with feelings of superiority also tend to judge other children by the specific criterion of whether or not they serve their needs. In her books on teen culture, Rosalind Wiseman variously calls these types of children ‘Queen Bees’, ‘Master-minds’, and ‘Alpha-kids’. They are the children vying for the top spot of the social hierarchy from as young as six years old. In early group play right to teenhood, “cliques” are more obvious indications that an individual’s feeling of superiority is shared by peers based on a common characteristic or quality of the members such as attractiveness, soci-economic class or perceived popularity. Cliques also share a corresponding view of outsiders as inferior because they are not in possession of the common characteristic. Alpha-kids maintain their feelings of superiority and their position at the top of the order by abusing their habitual victims, in the world of girls, the “Wannabes”, and in the world of boys, the “Wingmen”. Fueled by feelings of superiority, girls and boys are equally antagonistic but in different ways as they grow and develop. Up to the age of four girls and boys show aggression in similar ways by punching, biting, slapping or grabbing clothes or toys. At around age five, social and moral expectations are internalized and children try to cope with conflict in more socially acceptable ways. At around this age, children do not want to be labeled “bad” so hostilities are driven underground, and assaults are made less visible to authority figures like teachers, parents or coaches. Although boys continue to engage in physical fights, girls fight complicated social battles with other girls. The terms of engagement run from damaging relationships and reputations to seeking revenge and retaliation. The idea of collective superiority that leads to cliques can be learned through internalization of the societal values which privilege certain groups over others. For example, patriarchy privileges males over females, so we often see groups of girls acquiescing to groups

Victoria Beach HERALD of boys when choosing how the playground will be used at recess. Racism privileges white people over people-of-colour, so children will sometimes exclude based on racialized appearance or include based on a child’s ability to appear ‘almost white’. Classism privileges upper class children so that they will feel superior to working class children by valuing material goods (iPods or A & F clothes) over skills and ability. Heterocentrism privileges straight children so that they may feel superior to LGBTQ children or children with samesex parents. And so it goes for ableism (able-bodied & able-minded children feeling superior to disabled or intellectually challenged children) and appearance (feeling superior based on one’s ability to look like the beauty ideals presented in popular culture). In each scenario, members in the privileged group will use societal values to legitimize, and ruthlessly enforce their status advantage. Parents can also be the reason children feel superior to others. By ensuring their children are the first to have the latest electronic devices, fashions, services or experiences, parents can reinforce their children’s perceptions of being special and better than others. Parents may also use their resources or status to prevent their children from experiencing frustration and disappointment, or being held accountable for undesirable or even unlawful behavior. Being able to escape the consequences that others must face, creates a mythology of glory internal to that family; a shared feeling of triumph based on entitlement. Parents will often embellish the successes of their own children and ignore the real accomplishments of other children. And when having to ‘bail out’ their own, will blame other children in the peer group as ‘bad influences’ on their children. If your child holds the belief of superiority, it will prevent him or her from recognizing that the other child in a conflict is a living subject not an inanimate object devoid of feelings, thoughts and opinions. Help your child recognize others as equals and acknowledge his or her own role in a conflict. Teach your child that his or her actions have caused pain and anguish for another and that communication and compromise are in order. If a superior-feeling child has victimized your child, help your child understand why that child is avoiding any expressions of apology or accountability. Teach your child that without the aggressor’s admission of culpability, there can not be progress toward mutual respect and healing. Teach your child that he or she deserves recognition from the aggressor before seeking a lasting reconciliation. If that recognition never comes, teach your child to move on because friendships change and that’s OK.

Just as the VBC could not operate without the revenue from our membership dues, it would come to a complete standstill without the work from all of its volunteers and staff. Have you every disturbed an anthill? I’m sure most of you have. Isn’t it amazing what happens? From this innocuous mound of dirt comes such a flurry of activity from thousands of ants! An ant hill really looks quite ordinary from the outside, but what is really interesting is that what makes an ant hill alive is really happening on the inside. Take a closer look inside and you will see a very highly organized structure with millions of ants that each have a very specific job but who work collectively to support the organization. I think that the VBC is very similar to this. Although our programs are readily observed throughout the summer, you cannot see all the “ants” that are hard at work doing their specific jobs and working together to produce our beautiful (not ordinary) “anthill”. It is only when you “disturb” the hill by getting involved in the club that you begin to appreciate the flurry of activity that makes our hill so very special. This was certainly my experience. My children actively participated in all the VBC programs as they were growing up. We played tennis and attended many of the special activities. I had absolutely no idea how many people were involved in providing me

with these wonderful experiences until I got involved myself. Did you know that the average life expectancy of a worker ant is 1-3 years? Similarly we cannot expect our volunteers to work forever. We need more ants! We have several positions that will be vacant after this summer. Elected positions such as president, vice-president, treasurer and director at large are all at the end of their terms. Appointed officers such as special events and swimming are also at the end of their term. There is an immediate need to appoint a new facilities convener. This is a person who would oversee the facilities of the VBC including the library, clubhouse and recreation director’s cottage, but would not actually be responsible for doing any of the maintenance. Full detailed descriptions of any of these positions are available if you are interested. Feel free to contact me and we can chat! You may recall that last summer I issued a challenge to everyone. That challenge was to get more physically active. How did you do with that? Well, this summer I want to issue a new challenge. I want to challenge you to disturb the anthill – come inside and see what all of the flurry is all about. Cheers, Maureen Neuendorff

Cottages: Don’t Drop the Ball on Capital Gains Jack and Elly have a cottage. They are selling their house in town and moving into an apartment, and plan to keep the cottage in the family to give to the kids. Worried about capital gains, they see an advisor. The advisor calculates the capital gains tax payable on their house in Winnipeg as $15,000. The capital gains tax payable on the cottage in Ontario is far higher, in the neighborhood of $35,000. When a couple owns both a cottage and a home, they have a single principal residence exemption that can be used to shelter one of the two properties from capital gains taxes. Given the level of taxes pent up in the two properties, it will make sense for Jack and Elly to choose the cottage as their principal residence. Two pieces of advice become important if you might be in the same shoes as Jack and Elly. First, keep all of the receipts for capital improvements on both the house and the cottage. If you ultimately select the cottage to be your principal residence, you will want to have the receipts for the house. That is because you will be paying capital gains taxes on the house, and will want to be able to justify a high “adjusted cost base” on that property. The receipts help you justify that higher cost base and minimize capital gains taxes. Second, delay can be fatal. If you sell the house, or the cottage for that matter, you have to select one or the other to be your principal residence in that year. You cannot delay in making that choice. Depending on the choice you make, you may have to pay taxes and show the disposition on your next tax return. If you do delay and fail to file the necessary paper work, the tax people will effectively make the designation for you, and it may not be the one that makes the most sense for tax proposes. Thus, if you sell your house and fail to show that as a taxable disposition, having chosen the cottage as your principal residence, you may discover later that you are precluded from using the principal residence exemption to shelter capital gains on the cottage for the period of time that you owned the house.

25

Jack and Elly had no idea. They have not been keeping receipts for the house, only the cottage. They would never have thought to disclose a gain and pay capital gains on the sale of their house. Failing to do so would amount to a mistake, embracing the bigger tax bill later by overlooking the smaller tax bill now. After the house is sold, Jack and Elly are thinking of transferring the cottage to their three children. The transfer would take place next year and each child would have a one third interest. In the right circumstances, there might be some good reasons for Jack and Elly to do that, but none of those reasons relate to capital gains. Currently, each child has a house of their own, and a principal residence exemption they can use. The parents retain their principal residence exemption for gains on the cottage. That equates to four parcels of land, four principal residence exemptions, and no capital gains taxes. Good math. If the cottage is transferred to the three children, it creates three parcels of land. Add in the three houses the children already own. That equates to six parcels of land, three principal residence exemptions, and potential capital gains taxes that could have been avoided on some of those properties. Bad math. A person need only spend a few weeks a year vacationing at the cottage for it to be eligible as the person’s principal residence. A condo in Arizona can also qualify, or a houseboat in France, or even a RV. When it comes to land, the maximum surface area that can be protected is generally 1.23 acres (being one- half hectare). Jack and Elly are fictional but their problems are real. Dozens of clients consult me each year in the same boat -- some too late. You can’t protect yourself from taxes or build a good cottage succession plan unless you start with solid and specific answers relating to capital gains taxes and the principal residence exemption.

Victoria Beach Club website: www.victoriabeachclub.com Danielle Hall and I are pleased to announce that the Victoria Beach Club has a website! When you visit it, you will find all the events, schedules and contacts, current issues of the Victoria Beach Herald, some background on the role of the Club in the community, some photos, and (soon) a site for ride sharing. We felt that this last item is really important for riders and drivers to find each other and reduce the carbon footprint of driving to and from the lake. So, you know, use it.

Decisive. Direct.

The site is built to grow, and to do so we require feedback on content. We will attempt to respond to requests for information or other resources through the site, via the ‘contact us’ link. The site has been created in response to a request from VB Club President Maureen Neuendorff. We hope you like it! It’s been a pleasure to usher the Club into the World Wide Web. Christopher Thomas

Victoria Beach HERALD young female enthusiasts, Margaret Meulendyke for helping with the pre-season clean-up and Gary Wingate from Blue Water Lawn Services for lending us his pressure-washer to clean the courts. Thank you, also, to Bev and Mike Lesiuk for transporting a ball cart and ball hoppers from Minneapolis to VB. And finally, thank you to Tennis Manitoba for inservicing our staff and helping out with our first Rogers Rookie tournament. With all of this support, we are certainly off to a great start! This week’s special events include Robert Kennedy’s lessons on Monday and Geoff Kirbyson’s Doubles Clinic on Wednesday. You can sign up for both of these at the kiosk. See you at the courts! Bryan and Lisa Yagi

What’s Love Got to Do with It? There is some debate about the origin of the word “love” in tennis scoring. One theory is that it derives from the French word l’oeuf, meaning ‘egg’, which resembles a “zero”. Another suggests that when you are playing poorly, and thus not scoring any points, you are simply playing for the “love of the game”. Whatever theory you adhere to, it is clear that there is widespread love for this game at VB. And this passion manifests itself in many ways…people buying tennis memberships to support programs and facilities, volunteers organizing special events, members donating their time to teach and inspire the next generation of players, and special people who work behind the scenes to lend a hand. We would like to thank Nancy Sarchuk for organizing Girls’ Tennis Day, Robert Kennedy for donating his time to coach our

POLICEMANS CORNER

I went out for a bicycle ride last Saturday to Lester Beach and coming back I encountered a drunk male walking down the middle of the highway attempting to keep the world from seeing his “plumbers smile” (my apology now to all you plumbers). He had traffic stopped both ways as no one wanted to hit him with their vehicle. As I was on my day off I called the cavalry (the Victoria Beach Police) and they quickly attended and arrested him for being drunk in a public place. As I continued my ride home an RCMP truck passed me and stopped on the causeway and picked up 3 more similarly-affected individuals who were on Thompson Beach and they were also arrested. We were called after that once again by the RCMP to pick up and detain the fourth and last intoxicated person from the same beach location. We were also assisted by an RCMP off-duty officer who was on Thompson Beach with his family and witnessed the goings-on. And you thought we just drive or ride around with nothing to do. Speaking of bike riding, I urge all bicycle riders to be very careful at EVERY uncontrolled intersection. There are still cabs, service vehicles and Police vehicles on the roads. A cyclist and his son almost rode into the front of my truck last week and it was a good thing I was almost stopped. No motorist wants to injure anyone (walking or cycling). That brings us to the wearing of bicycle helmets. Anyone under 18 yrs. must have a bicycle helmet. Under 14? … the parent gets the ticket. 14-18? … you get to pay the ticket ( $63.10 ) The bicycle auction was today and we raised $311.00 (which goes straight back to the general R.M. coffers). We do not use that money for Tim Horton’s runs during the summer … as some have suggested we do. On a sad not, we had 4 bicycles stolen the day before the auction by someone who attended and put the 4 bikes in his truck and drove off. How sad is that? Pretty pathetic I think. Just so that you know, that is a theft and is an arresting offence … so for 4 old beach bikes you risk a criminal record (assuming you don’t already have one). Next year don’t be surprised if we have a fenced compound for the bikes. We have a Koss CD stereo with 2 speakers.......I found it in the winter under a cabin I was checking. If it is yours come and collect it, including the Rod Stewart CD in the unit. Stewart MacPHERSON Chief of Police, Victoria Beach, MB 756-2322 w

Getting it Done !

By way of introduction, here is the contingent of East Siders volunteering on behalf of Lake Winnipeg Foundation. While we come from a broad variety of backgrounds and experiences, our goal is the same: to restore the health of Lake Winnipeg. LWF President is Karin Boyd; Vice-Pres is Sheila Grover; Golf fore Water chair is John Heppenstall; VB Walkathon co-chairs are Susan and Matt Hall, all from VB. Local board members (past and present) and frontline workers include Janet and Mike Sampson, Dianne Sallans (our Treasurer), Bill McDonald, Sylvia Rodriguez Gigliotti, Greg Thomas and new to the ‘senate’ of retired and former board members, Dick Dawson and Kristie Pearson Pollard. Behind them is a small army of great people who pitch in with all our events and activities and without whom nothing could be done. Thank you, one and all! We are a science-based non-profit group, with policies and projects informed by an astonishing collection of knowledgeable scientists who give their time and expertise to the Foundation so we can make good decisions. For information on this Science Advisory Council, please visit our website www.lakewinnipegfoundation.org Our mission is to identify and support solutions that restore and protect the lake and its watershed through research, public education, stewardship and collaboration. The solutions lie within that same watershed because what we do on all those waterways affects the lake. From the floodwaters of Alberta in the west to South Dakota in the south and the height of land just this side of Lake Superior, all that water is received into our great lake: a million square miles that is home to millions of people, animals, sewage systems, factories and farms. Challenging, yes. Do-able, yes. The lake is not dead. The solutions are within our grasp. The challenge is political will, collaboration and resource investment. That is why we need your help through membership and donations. Our fundraisers this summer are Golf fore Water golf tourney at Larters at St. Andrews on Tuesday July 16 (see ad in this Herald or go to walkforwater.ca/golf), which will be a golfing good time. The 6th annual Walk-a-Thon will be held in VB on Sunday August 11 in the morning, starting at the Clubhouse. Something new this year for families with small children is a 2.5 km loop through the beach,

Victoria Beach HERALD a compact version of the 5 km. version. Also new is a chance to let people know why you think the Walk is important by wearing a “I’m walking for…” pinnie. Will you be walking for your children or grandchildren to make the lake cleaner? Or in thanks to your parents who made the effort to get you to the beach for your summer fun? Maybe its because your friends in Regina let you know that they are taking more care with the detergents they use. Who will you walk for? The pledge forms for the Walk will be out this week to help you enlist sponsors. We cannot do this without you. Lastly, you are cordially invited to the VB Information Night at the Clubhouse on Wednesday July 24th to get an update on what’s going on with the lake, LWF’s new initiative, the Lake Winnipeg Health Plan. We’ll also hear about the new Brokenhead Interpretation Trail opened last year in Scanterbury on Hwy. 59 to showcase both the critical role of wetlands and the fascinating and fragile ecosystems found there. It will be interesting and fun.

VB Yacht Club News

And we’re back, don’t you just love those shortened work weeks? I could get used to that. Don’t get too comfy in that beach chair though, the lake calls. This summer is your chance to get you and John your family out on the water and living the thrill of sailing, and & don’t Bob worry there will still be plenty of time for golf, tennis, the beach, sunsets… I could go on, are we lucky to be down here or what? As usual the VBYC has a full slate of learn to sail programs for all ages running all summer. We have top-notch certified coaches who will teach you everything you need to know and more while making sure you have fun on the water. Check out the posters around the beach or pick up a brochure at the VB store. The club website: www. vbyc.ca also has all the info you need and the link for registration is right on the homepage, it’s easy! If you already know how to sail we’ve got club boats for you all set to hit the water, or if you want a real thrill come down and crew on a catamaran in the weekend races. Junior sailors don’t miss regular Saturday races starting at 1pm to hone your skills and get valuable coaching tips.

At last, happy summer!

Swimming Registration 2013 This year we had 173 swimmers register on our registration day, what a great turnout! Thank you so much to our wonderful volunteers for helping out with selling memberships, taking payment and keeping things organized on the swim registration day. Jevian, our head swim instructor, will be at the top of the swim dock from 9:30-11 a.m. each weekday morning for registration and any questions or concerns. Our other instructors are often running back and forth between the dock and beach so are unable to answer questions during their busy day. We will have adult lap swim again at the swim dock this year. Wear your VB club wristband and come down between 10 and 11 a.m. to do laps at the swim dock. Depending on instructor availability, we may be able to provide stroke correction, or time laps, for those 16 and older at adult lap swim. Also, keep your eyes peeled for info on our whiteboards (by the clubhouse and swim dock) about changes of lesson location, because of the conditions, and other important VB swim news. Happy swimming!
