Dr. Mayo – Fighting Against Abuse
First, it’s crucial to know that many children who bully feel a need to dominate and be aggressive. They show anger and frustration easily, have difficulty following rules, view violence positively, and lack empathy. There is likely very little parental involvement, or significant parental issues happening at home. A note to parents, you may think you are hiding spousal conflict well, but children pick up on EVERYTHING!
So, where to start?
Parents, with summer on the way, there is no better time to make sure you are taking advantage of the free moments your child has to talk to them about bullying.
Decorating Decoded – Your Best Bathroom
Today’s topic is one that I’m hoping will help a lot of you out there as it is a challenge that many face, particularly if you have a period home. We will be tackling the problem of storage in a small bathroom.
First up is the medicine cabinet. While some may think they are outdated and have been replaced by the decorative mirror, they are still a great option because they do double duty which is a necessity in any small space. Perhaps they just need to be renamed since few people actually keep medicine in them anymore. They are still the best place to stash necessities like cosmetics, shaving gear and essentials for dental hygiene. They can be surface mounted or recessed, which may require some construction, but there are a lot of good-looking options out there, so shop around.
Laurel Behavioral Health – Self-Esteem
Tyler Benelli, a licensed Clinical Social Worker at Laurel Behavioral Health Outpatient, spoke with Homepage Correspondent, Sara Vogt, on the topic of “Self-Esteem”. This is a subject that we all evaluate, deal with, and relate with! “Self-esteem is really how worthwhile, or how valuable, we feel as a person,” shared Tyler. He continued to explain that our thought life carries the power to determine the quality of our self-esteem. Focusing on negativity within life’s situations, particularly dwelling on demeaning thoughts, will chip away at our sense of worth.
