Hello Parents, I thought you may want to learn about our #Teen #Tween & #Kids COMMON GROUND ETIQUETTE Good Manners & Etiquette Classes for Ages 13-17, 9-12 and 5-8 are coming up to Ashburn, VA in July! Please RSVP early, small groups classes are forming now. A portion of these classes benefit Irene's PROM Closet. #ComeLearnWithUs #Loudoun #Manners #Etiquette Please share 👩💻Thanks!
We need to teach our children to be inclusive but most of all to respect everybody, starting with themselves. Parents, teachers, community, we should all come together and not allow this type of actions to happen. Where did #kindness and #civility go? That’s why we teach what we do, to make sure we preserve respect and kindness and spread it everywhere we go.
“You know that feeling when you walk up to somebody, and they don’t really give you eye contact, because they don’t want to talk to you? Well a few of the kids in school started treating me that way. Other people saw it happening and it spread so fast. Because everyone learned that it was the normal way to behave. And everyone wanted to be normal. It jumped from grade to grade until the whole school was avoiding me. I’d get cyber bullied. My phone would vibrate all night with mean messages. I had such a negative view of myself. I was self-harming. I felt so trapped in the moment. It was so hard for me to realize that eventually it was going to stop. Then one day I was out on the playground and the usual group of kids were picking on me. And an older boy walked over. He knew me from cycling. He had a bit of power because he was from a higher grade. He said: ‘Stop this now. Don’t you understand what you’re doing to her?’ The whole playground saw him do that. And after that things began to turn around. Because people learned that was the normal way to behave.”

Well this is what I call coordinated dancing 🤗 What an amazing proncipal these kids have!

When NASA announced its newest class of astronaut candidates, it included five inspiring Mighty Women! NASA received a record-breaking number of applicants for the current astronaut class — over 18,000 in all.

In our blog post, we introduce you to these remarkably talented women. And, to inspire children who dream of their own careers in space, at the end of the post, we've showcased a variety of girl-empowering books and toys about shooting for the stars!

They didn’t know if their son would be able to find a job, so they created a bakery and he was their first employee. That little bakery grew into a business that the entire community loves to support.

Awesome Halloween tips from Special Agent Bobbi = Special Needs Mom + Real Estate Agent 💙
🎃 Halloween is just around the corner, and if your kids are anything like mine, everyone is very excited.
But I have a couple of tips and "Halloween tricks" for you!
Regarding what you pass out at your door - believe me, I love me some chocolate, but there are kids out there allergies - some severe. 🍬 One of the things I always try to do is participate in the #tealpumpkinproject - you display a teal pumpkin (painted or purchased, doesn't matter) at your doorstep indicating that your home is #allergyfriendly.
Now you can absolutely still pass out candy, but what I like to do is have a second basket of goodies - things from the dollar tree that aren't edible, but are still Halloween themed - glow sticks, erasers, pencils ✏, sunglasses🕶️. Check out Party City or Dollar Tree for some great stuff!
🚪 Next up - ages. A few people think that 12 and over is too old to be going door to door, but think of it this way. A lot of special needs kids are over the age of 12, but it means a lot to them to participate in this tradition and go door to door. Consider that when an older child knocks on your door next week.
🤡 Lastly - "Trick or Treat" - it's awesome to hear when the little trick-or-treaters ring your doorbells, but some kids may not be people to say it. Non-verbal, lack of language skills - but if their heart's in it, they're smiling - go ahead and give them the candy.
That's it for this week's #TuesdayChallenge! What's everyone dressing as!? 👹

COMMON GROUND ETIQUETTE #LoudounManners #MannerClassesForKids #KidsFirst #MannersAndKids
Remind your child that part of manners and civility is to ask for permission to do something they are not sure if you would approve of. It shows respect for you and also it is important to be safe. COMMON GROUND ETIQUETTE #LoudounManners #MannersForKids #MannersClassesForKids #KidsFirst
Teach your child that if they need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for them to use and enter the conversation. But in the same token, if it is not urgent, they should wait until you are done. And now, let's cross our fingers they get the hang of it :)
COMMON GROUND ETIQUETTE #MannersCount #LoudounManners #MannersClassesForKids
How young does your child need to be start learning manners? As soon as that baby starts handing you things, you always say "thank you," and when you ask for an item you always must add the word "please." They will model after you, trust me!
