â€œThe education system in the U.S. needs an overhaul. Studentsâ€™ voices could help find a solution.â€?
eachers and tax payers are surrounded by media buzz on the education debate. From President Obamaâ€™s Back to School address, to Mark Zuckermanâ€™s $100 million donation to Newark public schools, to the NBC News â€œEducation Nationâ€? summit, to the recent release of the film documentary on charter schools, â€œWaiting for Superman,â€? the national conversation over education is heating up. Some would argue boiling over. However, through all of the hype and hyperbole, little has been gleaned about the student perspective on the education crisis. In an effort to capture the voice of teens on this issue, StageofLife.com, a non-partisan blogging resource, asked a simple question in its recent writing contest for high school students: â€œWhat suggestion(s) do you have to make a positive change at your school or with the educational system as a whole?â€? Over 1,500 visited the student writing contest page and scores of teen leaders submitted a response. From the essays, five themes emerged. These student-generated, education solutions could play an integral part of the road map that teachers, administrators, and public policy decision makers use to chart the fate of education in America. Rebecca Thiegs, M. Ed., Education Consultant for StageofLife.com and current high school Language Arts teacher at Red Lion Area Senior High School in Red Lion, PA, stated, â€œThe education system in the U.S. needs an overhaul. Studentsâ€™ voices could help find

be tackled with innovative teacher training addressing the new socialnetworked-generation.
If student voices are to be heard, five themes were transparent in the teen responses:
The stress of planning for college, financially, has students upset. One student suggested a system of university internships for freshmen based on intended major, vocation or trade to reduce the cost of tuition. Increased involvement from high school schools and guidance offices on the financial aspects of college preparation, in addition to assisting with the admission process, is needed.
1.FOCUS LESS ON TEST SCORES:
Students strongly feel that teachersâ€™ primary role should be to produce critical thinkers and shape young minds, not churn out test takers. They want the classroom environment to emphasize the learning process versus hammering away on rote memorization or test taking skills. At a larger level, students feel the education system perpetuates a test taking culture verses the advancement of critical thinking, analysis, and passion for learning. One student went so far as to suggest that â€œmultiple choice and true and false tests should be eliminatedâ€? as they do not challenge analytic thinkers but simply reward those with a talent for memorization.
GET OUT OF THE CLASSROOM: Students desire experiential and out-of classroom instruction. Essay examples ranged from a request for more field trips to the desire for greater access to online courses to some encouraging schools to foster partnerships with community, civic and volunteer organizations as a way to round out a secondary education. As one StageofLife.com student writer aptly put it, â€œSchool is not life,â€? but it should reflect more of it.
3.REFRESH TEACHER TRAINING:
Students feel that many teachers are not trained or equipped to deal with the â€œFacebook nation.â€? One teen blogger specifically called for an â€œEducation Renaissanceâ€? by asking teachers to â€œtarget and talk to students directly,â€? at a level that will better engage them in the learning process. Another high schooler asked what many students probably feel...when will favoritism stop? These types of issues could
4.REDUCE THE COST OF COLLEGE: 5.COMBAT PEER APATHY:
Finally, and most importantly, the writing contest named an ugly truth that for many students is no surprise...student apathy. Essays painted pictures of â€œjocks who rarely show up for classâ€? or unmotivated burnouts â€œsleeping on their desks.â€? While these may seem like gross stereotypes, for teachers, it is often a reality dealt with everyday. However, for an increasing number of high school students -- they are fed up with it. Students are tired of watching their peers waste class time, disrupt the education process, or simply float through the school day disengaged with the opportunity for learning. These disconnected students hamper the learning environment for those that want to be in school. The spark of change to improve this issue will need to come from the students themselves, at a local level. Young leaders must emerge in their schools to hopefully change apathetic cultures and combat classmate apathy. StageofLife.com has consolidated some of the â€œHow to Improve Educationâ€? essays on one landing page for review at www.stageoflife.com/How_to_Improve_Education.aspx

“Crap I have family on here!” (*erase, erase, untag, delete*)
ts happening more and more. You hit your inbox and see the friend request, of course not from your newest crush but from your mom! Oh no, what to do? I don’t know what happened to the days when parents new less about the internet then they did about rocket science. But I logged on to Facebook only to find that my mom had friend requested me and seriously like ten of my friends! (*gasps*). This sounds like a surefire road to embarrassment and probably punishment the second she sees something she doesn’t like. What if she starts checking the pictures on my page? Or worse yet starts commenting on them! What if she starts posting things about me, or contacting my friends directly? When Mark Zuckerberg launched FB, it was designed as a way for college students to connect with each other. It was like an exclusive private club, since it was open only to those with certain e-mail addresses. But as Facebook’s popularity soared, its founders sought to expand its audience. In 2005, it allowed high school students to sign on. But it was the 2006 decision to open it up to the general public that drew howls from its original audience and opened the door for the parental invasion. Now the 35-54 age group is the fastest growing demographic on Facebook which means either your parents are already on or on there way to signing up. More and more teens are finding themselves unsure of what to do when mom joins FB and wants to be “friends”. In protest, several “abolish parent” groups have sprung up on the site such as “What Happens in College Stays in College: Keep Parents Off Facebook!” in 2007.
They meant it partly as a joke but were stunned when more than 500 people signed on, each with a tale of parental intrusion. One Facebook group even started a petition, online of course, to Facebook’s founder, begging him to reverse his decision.
is, confirming a Facebook friendship could take days, weeks, months even… what do they know?
For a generation accustomed to sharing everything online, it might seem odd to parents that two more pairs of eye would raise such concern. But Steve Jones, a professor of communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago who has studied digital culture extensively, knows what we all know … there’s a difference between the world and your parents.
Gasp, the gall of them! Don’t they know that you’re not supposed to ask someone about your Facebook friendship status?! This is when you casually say something like, “Oh I haven’t checked my Facebook in weeks,” or, “Did you request me? Hmm, that’s weird, I don’t think I got it.”
“What teens want to keep most private is not something they wish to keep from strangers, it’s the things they want to keep from people that know them,” he said. “It’s ‘I don’t care what someone who doesn’t know me finds out. But I do care about what someone I know intimately [does].’” Most students view Facebook as a site where high school and college kids can be on their own and not worry about their parents or anyone else judging them. Parents may request online friendship with their children, but those who receive these requests don’t necessarily have to accept them. You have a Facebook friend request from Mom. You are consumed by panic. What do you do? In an effort to appease the widened range of demographics currently cohabiting on the site, Facebook has come up with some unique privacy solutions depending on whom or how much you want someone to see of your profile. This way, you can still tag your friends in pictures from last weekend without worrying that your Mom or Dad might get their hands on them. Many have approached often agonizing process with a variety of stall tactics. Delay: That’s right, put it off as long as possible. Depending on how swift your parental unit
Learn more about your parents. Could be scary, (you might find out what mom really did on her trip to Cabo or what dad looks like in a Speedo) But it can also end up really cool. On FB you can learn some interesting things about your parents like what movies or books they like.
FB could be a distraction to them. Parents may get entertained by their own friends and may be too distracted to go into your personal space. (Its a big might, but here’s to hoping)
Deny : “Hey, why haven’t you accepted my friend request?”
Decide :Most of the above only works for so long, especially if you have social network savvy parents. You’ve put if off as long as you can. You could always say no, but if you have highly paranoid/suspicious/protective parents, they’re going to think you’re hiding something from them (instead of simply just wanting a teensy bit of privacy) and then they’ll get all weird on you. If that sounds like your parents, best to accept the friendship, put them on the limited profile setting and hope they get so wrapped up in their own Facebook social life that they forget about yours. If you have a parent that says add me or no FB - Negotiate It never hurts to negotiate. Let your parents know your concerns and how you feel. Let them know you fear embarrassing moments, them adding your friends, them using the FB as a way to pry into your personal space, etc. Find out their concerns too. Hear them out and realize their concerns are an act of love. Remember this is not a time to roll your eyes. You need their approval. The whole thing could end up being a really great discussion. Who knows you may be able to negotiate limited comment posting, or maybe a limited number of your friends they can add. But if all else fails, just hope with all your might your mom does not post the picture of you naked in the bathtub that she thinks is oh so cute. (*places head in hand- dies slightly- deletes account*)

post or status you don’t make because you know your parents are watching might unknowingly save you some serious embarrassment or trouble later on. Basically if the post is mom approved you may not score a whole bunch of points with your peers, but you definitely won’t end up in a “I didn’ t mean to...” situation either
The predators you hear about on TV are real and sometimes hard to spot. Mom might be able to see what you can’t and keep you safe.

handling the tattoo. Adding further “alarm value” some tattoos are also reportedly laced with strychnine, a deadly poison commonly used to kill rats. The text is full of capital letters and exclamation points stating “THIS IS VERY SERIOUS!” and “FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE!” Other tattoos are said to bear the bootleg images of popular cartoon characters such as Disney characters, Mickey Mouse, Superman, clowns, butterflies and later on, Bart Simpson. Is there any truth to the Blue Star tattoo rumors? So far, there have been no documented cases of tattoos laced with LSD or strychnine being distributed by drug dealers to children. They don’t exist so there’s no need to fuel this hoax. Chalk this one up to another classic Halloween urban legend.
+$//2:((1 URBAN LEGEND PEOPLE BEING #4 BURRIED ALIVE
longside Halloween’s usual tales of ghosts, ghouls and goblins, are the often told urban legends. Usually they involve a friend of a cousin of a friend somewhere that swears the story is totally true. (of course the friend of the cousin will never be found so the story can never really be verified). Some are cautionary tales about doing stupid things, some have just been around so long people think they are true just because they’ve been told so often, while others are there simply to scare and terrify. But if you think all there is to urban legend is myth and scare tactics think again, some are false but others are freakishly true, some are partially true

+$//2:((185%$1 LEGEND #5 BLUE STAR TATTOO The “Blue Star Tattoo” urban legend usually makes the rounds this time of year. It used to be a flyer, now its often an email. This one has even found its way to news causing mass alarm. The letters basically claim that ruthless drug dealers are targeting school kids with a (Dallas Cowboys-like) “blue star” rub-on tattoo which is laced with LSD and is absorbed into the body just by
So is there any truth to the fear? Actually yes, it may not happen as often now, but back in the day it happened with alarming regularity. In the late 19th century, William Tebb tried to compile all the instances of premature burial from medical sources of the day. He managed to collect 219 cases of near-premature burial, 149 cases of actual premature burial and a dozen cases where dissection or embalming had begun on a not-yetdeceased body.
Now, this may seem ridiculous, but keep in mind this was an era before doctors such as the esteemed Dr. Gregory House gained the ability to solve any ailment within 42 minutes. If you went to the doctor with the flu in those days, he’d likely cover you in leeches and prescribe you heroin to suppress your cough. Their only method for determining if a person had died was to lean over their face and scream “WAKE UP” over and over again. If you didn’t react, they buried you. The concern over being buried alive back then was so real that the must-have hot-ticket item for the wealthy and paranoid were “safety coffins” that allowed those inside to signal to the outside world (usually by ringing a bell or raising some type of flag) should they awake 6-feet under. Though, answering that bell sounds like a good way to get ambushed by a zombie if you ask us. Unfortunately safety coffins aren’t in vogue anymore, so if you’re at the cemetery and hear a muffled voice calling out “OK guys, joke’s over. Let me out!” it might be a good idea to inform someone with a shovel quickly. Of course, that last sentence was merely facetious, there’s no way something like this could still happen today. Uh, well, except for that about a Venezuelan man waking up during his autopsy. On second thought, you might want to consider adding a line in your will that states you’re to be buried with a gas-powered jackhammer in your casket when you go.
+$//2:((185%$1/(*(1' #3 BLOODY MARY Who can forget the scary story of Bloody Mary, the evil spirit who will scratch your eyes out when summoned? Most people heard the Bloody Mary legend when they were children, listening to spooky ghost stories around the campfire. The tale is still told at slumber parties, campouts, and late-night bonfire parties. The legend claims that the evil woman can be summoned by chanting “Bloody Mary” into a mirror anywhere from three to one-hundred times in a darkened room lit only by a candle. The bathroom is the most popular setting to test out the legend, but other dark rooms seem applicable. After the given amount of chants, the spirit will then appear in a mirror to claw your eyes out. Death will follow. Other variations have her driving you insane or pulling you into the mirror, never to be seen again. Who Bloody Mary really is remains a mystery.
There is conversation that the myth is based on Queen Mary in England who was plagued by frequent miscarriages and nicknamed bloody Mary or a woman named Mary Worth, who was horribly disfigured in a car crash. Some people still tell of a witch who was burned at the stake and has returned for revenge, or it may be the devil himself who comes for your soul. Either way Bloody Mary is the urban legend that will never die. A version of the story was the plot for the 1992 movie “Candyman” (personally I found this movie terrifying! Although I can say that I generally don’t have any nightmares from horror movies, this one I remember vividly -- waking up in a cold sweat, and trying not to fall back asleep)
guarantee the tykes will be talking about the house that gave out full-sized Snickers bars long after some life-risking stunt was forgotten.
The movie “Urban Legend” in 1998 borrowed the Bloody Mary myth once again, for one of it’s stories. As if that wasn’t enough, 2005 brought us “Urban Legends: Bloody Mary,” which was released directly to DVD. While there is obviously no proof of Bloody Mary actually existing she does exist thanks to Hollywood filmmakers who will not let her die. There’s no doubt, the horrific tale will appear again, perhaps in yet another version with a different twist.
These stories come in many forms right around the Halloween season. Newspaper and magazine stories repeat the annual warnings. E-mails are sent out and more. Most of these stories consist of razor blades, needles, screws and other harmful things being inserted inside apples and popcorn balls. How about the arsenic or cyanide laced candy? Ever hear that one? These stories will once again be heard, with some variations as imaginations wander. I remember trick-or-treating years ago, with a sense of security until the stories would emerge once again, making me afraid to turn the next corner. Somehow, it took the fun out of it and soon thereafter, I had no desire to go.
+$//2:((185%$1/(*(1' #1 POISONED CANDY FOR TRICK-OR-TREATERS This has to be the biggest Halloween story ever. On Halloween, It’s a parent’s worst nightmare and a child’s deepest fear. A little ghost or goblin receives poison candy while trick or treating and is harmed with physical and mental scars, or worse yet -- fails to survive at all.

Sometimes real people take the part of mannequins in the displays and through accident or ignorance(or both) really do hang themselves. (Yes, they were pretty much all teenage males. ) The idea is to put a fake noose around the neck that doesn’t tighten, while hanging from a concealed harness. Occasionally, for some reason, the noose really does tighten, or the harness deploys wrong, and the person dies -- which is why this urban legend about Halloween is no longer an urban legend at all, mainly because its happened more than once. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS … This Halloween prank can go horribly wrong. Here’s a tip for anyone trying to thrill kids on Halloween in the future: You don’t need to hang yourself. Just give out full-sized chocolate bars instead of those not-so-fun “fun-sized” ones. We
So how much basis is there to these poison Halloween candy stories? Very little. There is only one reported case in the 70’s of children being poisoned by Halloween candy, and in that instance the victims were poisoned purposely by relatives of theirs as part of a scam to collect insurance money. Other reports over the years, were mostly proved false alarms, or had an explanation that did not point to an individual trying to poison children trick-or treating. Some were actually pranks, pulled of by children attempting to alarm their parents! But while there isn’t much past precedent for this urban legend, this is one Halloween urban legend that will never die. The media attention makes it a continual threat/possibility that some insane, vindictive person will the idea and run with it so while you shouldn’t be overly worried a few precautions should still be taken. t Do not eat anything that has loose or open wrappers. t Do not eat anything that has not been store wrapped. t Take advantage of the hospitals offering their x-ray machines for detecting foreign objects. t If anything tastes “funny” spit it out and save it for any evidence that may be needed.

&B vocalist Jason Derulo exploded into stardom while still in his teens. First he started as a songwriter for other artists and later as a solo performer. Born to Haitian parents in Miami, FL, Derulo started pursuing a career in music at an early age. He attended a performing arts school in Florida and took some early stabs at music composition, writing his first song at the age of eight. His writing skills began attracting attention and by his teenage years, Derulo had begun scribing tracks for artists like Lil Wayne, Pitbull, and Pleasure P. He also wrote “Bossy” for Birdman, a New Orleans-based rapper, and made a guest appearance on the song, which highlighted his singing abilities. In August 2009, he debuted his solo single “Whatcha Say” which hit No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 after three months of release. The chart-busting single which samples Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek” was then followed by another catchy song “In My Head.” Like its predecessor, the track also cracked the Top 10 of the U.S. singles chart, peaking at No. 9. CHM sat down with the busy songwriter/singer in an insightful interview.
JD: It is easier to become a song writer. In today’s environment the competition is really fierce in songwriting and in performance. However, with performance, there are a lot of other aspects that go into being a performer. Being a songwriter takes a lot too, I don’t want to take anything away from that because that is an amazing talent as well. But when being a performer there are other added talents that go into being a performer.
CH: A lot of people did not know that before being well known as a singer you were a songwriter. How did you get the opportunity to write songs for labels like Cash Money? JD: Well that is a misconception. I did not write for cash money. I wrote a song for Lil Wayne. Some of the artist I wrote for was Danity Kane, Cassie, Sean Kingston & P.Diddy. I got the opportunity by grinding. I was writing songs for myself and I built a name for myself, then people started to reach out to me to work with me and that is what started things.
CH: Your first single “Whatcha Say” sold over 5 million digital downloads. Where you shocked at all by any of the success? JD: I wouldn’t use the word “shocked” but definitely blessed it was an absolute blessing and I worked really hard to see the reaction of music that I write on my own time so that was incredible. I released three singles and all were top ten hits. That made me the first artist in history to have their first three singles go top ten, first two singles went number 1, that made me the first artist in history whose first two singles go # 1, so I mean I’ve been so blessed. It is refreshing to know that I get the opportunity to go around the world and see the reaction of my music. So I wouldn’t use the word shocked but I would use the word blessed.
CH: How old were you when you started? JD: I first started singing and dancing when I was five years old. CH: Most crafts like music require a huge work ethic. A lot of people may not be familiar with your huge musical educational background. Do you think going to a performance school growing up played a huge role in your success today? JD: Yeah I do, it was awesome, it was great, I learned a lot. It was definitely something that has changed my life. I’m trained in every aspect of performance. I wanted to be the consummate performer so I studied classical, jazz, Shakespeare, musical theatre, ballet, tap dance & jazz dance. All of these helped me to become who I am today so I guess I am the arts kid if you would call it that.

CH: What advice would you give to a teen trying to become a songwriter? Where do you suggest they go to get there big break? JD: I would say to work hard. It is a lifestyle you have to live. If it is a hobby, that is not enough. The competition is fierce and there are a lot of people out there that want to do the same thing that you want to do, so it is imperative that you live it. When I say live it that is what you wake up to, your thinking about it when you go to sleep, you think about it when your eating and all you want to do is make music and that is what you are supposed to be doing. The break will find you. You don’t have to look for the break.
CH: What do you your parents say about all your success? JD: They are proud. They have been by my side through the entire process. They could not be prouder.
CH: Neyo and you started out the same way. Does he influence you in any way? JD: No, when Neyo came out I was too old to be influenced by him. He is a young man himself, I am 21 yrs old. I was more influenced by artist like prince, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Elvis. Some of the newer artist that had influence on me was Justin Timberlake and Usher.
CH: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? JD: In five years I want to be on the same path of growth. I want to continue to grow with the same intensity. I think a lot of people fall into the trap of becoming complacent and satisfied with the success they have gotten and that can put someone in a box. They will be trapped with that amount of success because they don’t have anything to look forward to. When you have bigger dreams and bigger goals it forces you to want to continue to work hard. I want to change the world with my music. I want to build something that is special, something that is lasting and something that is iconic. So it’s just the beginning for me. I just want to continue on this path so in five years I will be working as hard as I am today.
CH: Do you think it is easier to become a song writer or to become an artist?
CH: You have toured alongside artist like 17 17 Lady Gaga and worked with artist like Diddy, 17

Danity Kane, Donnie Klang, Sean Kingston, Cassie and Lil Mama. Can you say or share any experience with any of them where you walked away with some serious knowledge or advice? JD: P. Diddy gave me some advice. He told me that to keep this successful, never sleep and to only take naps. I took that advice. I don’t really sleep that much. CH: Out of an entire week. How much sleep would you say you get? JD: I would say about 35 hours. I would say about 5 hours a day is the average. I get 19 hours of work in per day. CH: Where were you the first time you heard your song play on the radio? Who were you with, what were you doing and what was your reaction? JD: I was by myself. It was 6 am in the morning. I was driving home from the studio and I was in LA. When I heard my song play all I could think was “wow” CH: You have huge commercial success. How do you stay grounded? JD: I think part of it is my upbringing. My mom will not let me get a big head. She will grab my ear and get me right if I ever step out of line. But more importantly I have worked so hard to get to where I am today. It was not something that was given to me.

I want to be a positive role model and inspire people. I do it for a different reason. CH: What is your most memorable moment in the music business thus far? JD: I think the most memorable moment was the first time I saw myself on MTV. CH: Creatively, Where do you get your inspiration from? JD: My inspiration comes from life. Sometimes I get into the studio and I want to write or I have to write this song for somebody but other times I just wake up in the middle of the night and I have to write something down because I feel the need to get something off my chest. CH: Can you share a most embarrassing moment? JD: I was performing at a stadium in front of 90,000 people and I was sweating and I had a leather jacket on and I was trying to take the jacket off and I couldn’t take it off. I was in front of all these people and I couldn’t get the jacket off. I had to go up to one of my dancers to help me get my jacket off. It was really embarrassing.

O YOU KNOW WHAT FEELS LIKE TO WAKE UP AFRAID TO GO TO SCHOOL? Thousands of teens do and millions more are affected by the problem of bullies. It has everyone worried, and not just the kids on the receiving end; often other kids live in terror that they will be next. Yet because parents, teachers and other adults don’t always see it, they often don’t understand just how extreme bullying can get. But lately it seems like the media has finally gotten on top of what teens have known for years, that
as National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month we want to talk about bullying, what you can do and how you can help.
the torture of being bullied can be, in a word, devastating (to put it lightly). The headlines and nightly news leads have been flooded with stories of bullying gone just way too far. Just this year a 15-year-old girl in Massachusetts and a 17-year-old boy in Ohio were both bullied and tormented by their peers to a point where they turned to suicide as their way out; A father in California is potentially facing jail time for defending his daughter against school bus bullies and a gay teen in Texas shot himself in his Dad’s closet after bullying became unendurable for him. We don’t believe suicide is ever the answer, and hope that knowledge and information can possibly stop the next tragedy from happening. So in honor of October
From the mean girls to the major jerks bullying means doing or saying something that deliberately hurts, threatens or frightens someone. Bullying can range from those who attack their targets physically (shoving, tripping, punching, hitting or even sexual assault) to those who terrorize with psychological or verbal insults (gossiping, spreading rumors, name calling, teasing, etc.) Before the Internet and cell phones, bullying was something that happened mostly in person or maybe by spreading malicious gossip. Now, verbal bullying can also involve sending cruel instant or email messages or even posting insults about a person on a website — practices that are known as cyberbullying. With all the different avenues open to kids, including online in social media, sending text messages or picture texts, or tweeting, teens have many more ways to potentially bully other kids. And, once something is out there in cyberspace, it’s very difficult for it to ever be totally erased.
WHO IS AFFECTED?
Bullying is a widespread problem and one of the hardest things about it is admitting that it might be happening to you. We all like to think that we can look after ourselves, but we might sometimes play down behavior that counts as bullying because we don’t want to make a fuss, be considered a wuss or
“SOMETIMES, BULLYING HAPPENS SO MUCH THAT PEOPLE GET USED TO IT AND START TO BELIEVE THAT IT’S A NORMAL PART OF EVERYDAY LIFE. BUT BULLYING IS NOT NORMAL ... AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH IT.”

simply hope it will go away. It’s important to remember that if you’re being bullied, it isn’t your fault, it’s the person bullying who has the problem. Although most bullies think they’re hot and have the right to push people around, others are actually insecure. They put other people down to make themselves feel or look more interesting or powerful. Some bullies act the way they do because they’ve been hurt by bullies in the past — maybe even a bullying figure in their own family, like a parent or other adult. People who bully do so for all kinds of reasons. It’s hard to say why people sometimes pick on others. From something as trivial as the color of your hair or where you come from, people can target others because they stand out from the crowd in one way or another. It can be because of things like race, religion, size or sexuality; the way someone looks or because they are bright and intelligent. It can even stem from jealously. Whatever the reason, it’s important to remember that no one deserves to be bullied - simple as that. Sometimes, bullying happens so much that people get used to it and start to believe that it’s a normal part of everyday life. But bullying is not normal. Nobody should think of bullying as the normal annoyance you get at school or work. No one deserves it and you don’t have to put up with it.
WHAT CAN 1 DO?
The most important thing to remember is that you mustn’t ignore the fact that you’re being bullied. The person bullying you shouldn’t get away with what they’re doing and you deserve to live your life hassle-free. Bullying is wrong and you need to take action to stop it continuing. You need to tell someone. If you don’t want to go straight to a teacher or parent, why not confide in a friend and see what they think? Maybe your friend has noticed that there’s been a problem and is willing to back you up when you tell someone else. You should also try and write down dates, times and places of when the bullying is happening.
BULLYING SURVIVAL TIPS
TELL AN ADULT. It may sound lame or like a recipe for more trouble from your attackers but Adults
in positions of authority — parents, teachers, or coaches — can often find ways to resolve dangerous bullying problems without the bully ever learning how they found out about it. It is vital to report bullying if it threatens to lead to physical danger and harm. Numerous high-school students have died when stalking, threats, and attacks went unreported and the silence gave the bully license to become more and more violent.
IGNORE THE BULLY AND WALK AWAY. Bullies thrive on the reaction they get, and if you
walk away, or ignore hurtful messages, you’re telling the bully that you just don’t care. Sooner or later they will probably get bored with trying to bother you. Bullies want to know they have control over your emotions. If you’re in a situation where you have to deal with a bully and you can’t walk away with poise, use humor — it can throw the bully off guard
DON’T GET PHYSICAL. However you choose to deal with a bully, don’t use physical force
3 4 5 67 8 9
(like kicking, hitting, or pushing). Not only are you showing your anger, you can never be sure what the bully will do in response. You can stand up for yourself in other ways. Aggressive responses tend to lead to more violence and more bullying for the victims.
ACT MORE CONFIDENT. If a person who bullies feels that they don’t have any power over you, it takes the ‘fun’ out of it for them . Practice ways to respond to the bully verbally or through your behavior. Practice feeling good about yourself (even if you have to fake it at first).
TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE. You can’t control other people’s actions, but you can
stay true to yourself. Think about ways to feel your best — and your strongest Learn a martial art or hone your skills in something like art, music, computers, or writing. Joining a class, club, or gym is a great way to make new friends and feel great about yourself. The confidence you gain will help you ignore the mean kids.
DON’T LISTEN to what the person bullying you is saying.
DON’T BE TEMPTED TO TAKE DAYS OFF from school. Not only are you
playing into their hands, but you risk delaying your graduation and damaging your future. It may sound cliché, but the absolutely best revenge against a bully is to have a fantastic life.
TALK ABOUT IT. Breaking the silence is the most important part in fighting back against bullying. If you’ve kept a diary of when the bullying has been taking place, this can help you when you tell a teacher or parent what’s been going on. Most schools have anti-bullying guidelines and will take your complaint seriously.
FIND YOUR [TRUE] FRIENDS If you’ve been bullied with rumors or gossip, all of the above
tips can apply. But to help ease feelings of hurt and isolation, find one or two true friends and confide how the gossip has hurt your feelings; set the record straight. Hearing a friend say, “I know the rumor’s not true. ,” can help you realize that most of the time people see gossip for what it is — petty, and immature.
SPEAK OUT. Most people hesitate to speak out because it can be hard. It takes confidence to
stand up to a bully — especially if he or she is one of the established group leaders. But chances are the other students witnessing the behavior feel as uncomfortable as you do. They may just not be speaking up. Perhaps they feel that they’re not popular enough to take a stand or worry the bully will turn on them. But when one person speaks out against a bully it gives others license to add their support and take a stand, too.

Every Halloween, orthodontists see a significant increase in the number of emergency visits from patients who donâ€™t heed their advice to avoid forbidden treats. In a 2010 survey, 78% of orthodontists reported an increase of at least 10% more emergency visits on Halloween and the days following. Another 20% reported a 25% increase in emergency visits. Lets be honest anything broken on your braces stands to be painful, nobody wants an extra unnecessary trip to the dentist, breaking your braces can cause them to have to stay on longer (noooo!) and chances are your parents wonâ€™t be too terribly happy if your Halloween licorice binge ends up costing them extra money at the orthoâ€™s office. Leading orthodontist Dr. Gilbert H. Snow shared with CH that the worst thing you could probably eat with braces is Ice. â€œIce, should always stay in your cup. It should never go in your mouth. Ice can and more than likely break a bracket.â€?
And if you break the rules â€Ś â€œFirst loose bracket adds a month of treatment time,â€? Dr. Snow says. â€œThe worst thing I have ever witnessed was a student that tried to pull braces off with pliers and broke their tooth in half.â€? All sweets, even those that are soft and easy to chew, can cause problems for braceswearers if the teeth are not cleaned well after enjoying them. Dr. Snow mentions that anything with sugar puts spots on your teeth. Sugar damages enamel and leads to marks and cavities so you should brush after you eat candy (within 20Minutes, preferably). But the following is a list of indulgences that wonâ€™t send you to the emergency room.
hile ghosts and goblins of all sorts will haunt the nightmares of most this Halloween season, chances are your local orthodontistâ€™s nightmareâ€™s consist of gummy bears that go squish in the night. Potato chipsâ€Ś. gummy bearsâ€Ś.cookiesâ€Ś.Tootsie Rollsâ€Ś.taffyâ€Ś.graham crackers are all truly terrifying for teeth, especially if you have braces. For kids with traditional metal braces, sticky Halloween treats can break brackets and bend wires. Starchy foods like crackers, chips and cookies stick around and in between teeth, where they quickly break down into sugar.

If youâ€™re tired of being treat deprived all together, a new generation of clear, removable braces like Invisalign Teen, let kids pop their braces out, to be able to enjoy treats and easier cleaning. Because clear braces are removable, there are no food restrictions and no emergency appointments for broken brackets. But the increased cost makes these unavailable for some. If you do have traditional braces. The bright side is you can change the colors to Clear, Halloween themes, or even your school colors.

MORE THAN A MOUTHFUL
he U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 300,000 sports-related concussions occur each year in the United States, with children and teens having the highest risk. Mouth guards may seem like a little thing but they do more than protect an athlete’s teeth; they can also serve as shock absorbers, a protective means to prevent concussions. If 27-year old Kristy Barkley had been wearing a mouth guard, her rugby-related concussions may have been prevented. After experiencing ten concussions, Barkley has been told by doctors that she has a 98 percent chance of developing earlyonset Alzheimer’s, which usually appears between ages 35 and 55. Since her pre-diagnosis, she has been working with the Alzheimer’s Association to raise awareness of the link between sports-related concussions and the disease. “Most people think of Alzheimer’s as an old person’s disease,” said Barkley. “They’re not aware of the link between head injuries, in my case multiple sports-related concussions, and early-onset Alzheimer’s and dementia. They also don’t know that your risk for a concussion increases with each occurrence.”

“We are increasingly hearing about serious, long-term consequences of concussions including the potential for early Alzheimer’s and dementia,” said Dr. Phil Wenk, D.D.S., president and CEO of Delta Dental of Tennessee. “Young

athletes should get in the habit of wearing a mouth guard every time they participate in sports, especially contact sports. The risk of serious injury is too great not to.” Before athletic associations required football players to wear mouth guards and helmets, injuries to the face and mouth accounted for 50 percent of all injuries. Since adopting the requirement in the 1960s, the number has dropped to 0.5 percent. However, even in football, a sport requiring protective gear, only about 75 percent of the athletes wear their mouth guard. Many professional athletes have been affected by concussions. Former NHL players Eric Lindros, Adam Deadmarsh, Scott Stevens and Pat LaFontaine, and former NFL quarterbacks Troy Aikman and Steve Young all had their careers cut short as a result of concussions. NFL Hall-of-Famer John Mackey has developed dementia after one concussion and 10 years of heavy contact in the NFL. Delta Dental distributed mouth guards four years ago when it joined with the Predators for the “Protect Your Fangs” program. Since the program’s inception, more than 43,700 mouth guards have been distributed to youth athletes statewide.

COMPARED WITH THE 22 SCHOOLS LAST YEAR THE CAMPAIGN HAS GROWN RECENTLY WITH NEW SCHOOLS LIKE LOCKE AND ROOSEVELT SIGNING UP FOR THE CAMPAIGN. THE TOTAL FOR THE CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR WILL BE 29 SCHOOLS. THAT REFLECTS AN AMAZING GROWTH FOR THE CAMPAIGN. FED BY GRANTS FROM THE TITLE IV ANTI-SMOKING SAFE SCHOOLS CAMPAIGNS, AND FURTHER FUELED BY CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THE CARSON FOUNDATION AND A NEW GRANT FROM THE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL THROUGH THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH THE CAMPAIGN HAS GROWN DRAMATICALLY FROM THE ORIGINAL SIX SCHOOLS INVOLVED THREE YEARS AGO. WE’RE TALKING 500% GROWTH IN THREE YEARS. IT’S HARD KEEPING UP. LAST

YEAR OVER 150,000 STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN CAMPAIGN EVENTS, AND WITH THE GROWTH IN THE NUMBER OF SCHOOLS PARTICIPATING EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE NUMBERS ARE ON TAP FOR THE CAMPAIGN JUST LAUNCHED. HOWEVER, BESIDES GROWING IN THE NUMBERS OF SITES AND STUDENTS INVOLVED THE
CAMPAIGN HAS ALSO GROWN IN ITS REACH AND COMPLEXITY. THE CAMPAIGN IS TAKING ON A GREATER DEPTH WITH ADDITIONS LIKE: THE STUDENT-LED FOOD DRIVES TO POOR FAMILIES AMONG THE DISTRICT FAMILY; A STEM INITIATIVE IN THE FORM OF ENTERING TEAMS INTO THE US AIR FORCE CYBER PATRIOT PROGRAM WHICH INVOLVES A NATIONWIDE COMPUTER COMPETITION; A VIDEO CAMPAIGN WHICH WILL PRODUCE WEB VIDEOS AT EACH OF THE PARTICIPATING HIGH SCHOOL SITES. LAST YEAR SIX STUDENTS FROM THE CAMPAIGN GAINED COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS FROM THE CAMPAIGN, AND OTHERS CAME OUT OF SCHOOL AND FOUND JOBS THROUGH THE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM. THERE ARE ALSO SO MANY SMALL CLUBS ORGANIZING. KENNEDY HS STARTED A CLUB CALLED THE UKULELE UNDERGROUND TO LEARN TO PLAY, AND THERE IS ALREADY A SECOND CHAPTER STARTING AT ANOTHER SCHOOL. THE GROWTH HAS BEEN SPECTACULAR IN EVERY WAY.
THE KICK OFF THIS YEAR WAS A PAIR OF RETREATS AT UCLA’S UNICAMP UP IN THE SAN BERNARDINO MOUNTAINS. THREE
SENSE OF MISSION. THE OTHER BENEFIT WAS THAT STUDENTS FROM EACH SCHOOL MET STUDENTS FROM ALL OF THE OTHER SCHOOLS INVOLVED IN THE CAMPAIGN. AS ONE SAID. “IT’S AMAZING TO SEE HOW MANY OF US ARE HERE.”
THEN LAST WEEKEND THE CORE LEADERSHIP GROUP FROM EACH CAMPUS MET ON SATURDAY MORNING TO START PLANNING THEIR SPECIFIC CAMPAIGN SCHEDULE AT EACH SCHOOL. THE GYM AT LA HIGH WHERE THE SESSION WAS HELD WAS JAM-PACKED. IT WAS A FAR CRY FROM THE MUCH SMALLER GROUPS THAT MET LAST YEAR, AND THE YEAR BEFORE THAT. NOW IT’S STANDING ROOM ONLY. THIS TRAINING SESSION IS WHERE THE HARD WORK OF THE CAMPAIGN STARTS GETTING DONE, WHERE STUDENTS START ORGANIZING INTO TEAMS AND TAKING RESPONSIBILITY AND SETTING DATES FOR THE COMING YEAR. IT’S A BIG STEP, BUT THE TRADITION IS STRONG, THE ENTHUSIASM WAS INFECTIOUS, MOODS WERE BRIGHT, AND THE CAMPAIGN BY ANY MEASURE IS OFF TO A ROARING START.
HUNDRED STUDENTS FROM THE LEADERSHIP SCHOOLS GOT THEIR LOOK OUT LA! THE 2010-2011 FIRST LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF SCHOOLS INVOLVED, THEY STARTED ACTION LEADERSHIP CAMPAIGN IS COMING THINKING ABOUT THE UPCOMING CAMPAIGN, AND THE SESSIONS AT THE YOU - LA STYLE. CAMPS WERE FOCUSED ON BUILDING TEAMWORK AND A CELEBRITYHIGHMAG.COM OCTOBER 2010
