THEME OF THE WEEK: Being Safe by Following School Rules and Expectations for our School and Home Community
Have you heard of the saying: “Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me.”
I disagree that words don’t hurt. Actually, sometimes words hurt the most. I often speak with students and families about the power of positive thinking. This week’s tip is all about the power of words and how it affects how others feel about themselves. What other people hear about themselves becomes their inner voice. October is Bullying Prevention Month.
I have to start off with saying that I am on a corona-coaster with my emotions. It’s like being on a rollercoaster with times when I have really good feelings about our world and our lives and at times feeling really low and sad. All feelings are okay, it is what we do with them that we should focus on. It is also important to know that feelings can lead us to action and change. Like when we are sad, it is telling us we may be missing something in our lives and we need help from our friends and family.
