22 seconds to watch that will last for a day. From me to you, all of my friends in all of my categories!
I scoured the internet for a list of bullying vocabulary words that I liked. Maybe that’s the speech therapist in me but I couldn’t find a list to please me, so I made my own Kathie’s Top Ten List of Bullying Words.
THIS IS WHERE YOU START TEACHING PEOPLE ON THE AUTISM SPECTRUM ABOUT BULLYING because these are the keywords that I feel are important for our people with ASD to know. They are also words that are important for parents and all professionals to know and understand.
Kathie’s Top Ten Bullying Words
• To threaten or scare a person with words or physical actions
• Someone who sees what is happening without taking part or action
• Telling things about another person that may or may not be true in a negative manner in order to spread lies
• To continuously bother or upset another person with words or actions
• Embarrass or make another person feel unworthy
• To frighten or threaten a person to make them do what you want them to do
• To call a person unpleasant names that are degrading
• To bodily harm another person
• To make fun of someone or laugh at them and make them feel stupid
• To verbally harm another person by what is being said
lETS GET THIS LIST AROUND THE INTERNET ~ SHARE IT ~ TRANSLATE IT ~ TWEET IT ~ SEND TRACKBACKS TO ME ~ COMMENT ~ MAKE IT KNOWN THAT WE WILL NOT TOLERATE BULLYING!
May you all enjoy a wonderful and safe holiday celebration with your family and friends. This is about our nation ~ pulling together our past and our future.
LET FREEDOM RING!
I received this notice from Al’s daughter, Becky, announcing the Second Al Bell Film Festival to be held in Stuart, Iowa on September 16, 2012. If I were anywhere close, I’d sure be there. Al Bell fans, be sure to view my other posts and information about Al on Kathie’s World. What memories this man gave us. What joy!
Kathie, In case you’re not aware yet, we’ve announced a Second Al Bell Film Festival in Stuart on 9/16. My siblings and I will appear again w/displays and two films from 1-3, but the most exciting news is that ALL (but two) of my dad’s fims have been transferred to dvd and will be on sale that day! Arranged chronologically, four to a package – 7 packages total. Tickets are reserved through http://www.whitepoleroad.com again. Please share! Thanks!
If you are happy ~ your child will glean joy in his/her life.
If you are strong ~ your child will learn strength.
If you share convictions ~ your child will learn to stand up for what is right.
If you show kindness ~ your child will be a giver.
If you have faith ~ your child will learn that faith will defeat despair.
If you have love ~ your child will learn that love can sustain.
These are my words, my beliefs, my experience. Kathie Harrington
I feel guilty because today I thought to myself with great relief, I’m so glad that I don’t need to go grocery shopping today. Then I looked at the headlines in Syria and I once again thought about all of the women over there who prayed, I so wish I could go grocery shopping today so that my family can eat.
I continue with my little acts of kindness in the form of food bags as I drive around my city of Las Vegas, NV. I always carry at least two bags with me in the car and hand them out to people who hold signs on the corners. The quart size bags contain a bottle of water, crackers, fruit cup, candy, and a toothbrush or comb. I often put in chap-stick and lotion as well.
People are so grateful and I always receive a ‘thank you’ accompanied by a smile. Many of the men and women say, “God bless you,” That makes my day.
Yes, it is better to give and there is so much giving to be done. Don’t judge ~ just make little bags of kindness for people in your town. You’ll be the one who receives the gift!
I challenge YOU and let me know how it goes.
My husband, Tim, is a member of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Volunteer Police Department. They were named the #1 volunteer police department in the United States for 2011. That is Sharon Harding, (bottom left photo) holding the trophy, along with Capt. Maczala, from L.V. Metro, and Earl Beach, director of Metro volunteers at McCarran Airport.
Year-end stats for the McCarran Metro Volunteers are staggering with 3375 shifts and 163,509 public or department assists! Total hours these men and women volunteered at McCarran airport totaled 18,983. That is just for McCarran. Metro Volunteers assist the public all over the Las Vegas Valley in various positions. We can all be proud and grateful for their dedication and time.
When you’re traveling in or out of McCarran Airport and see a YELLOW SHIRT, ask a Volunteer or just say, “Hi.” They’re there to assist YOU because they care.
