PROM NIGHT 2012
by William Jackson, M.Ed.
Encouraging communication between parents and their children.

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morning, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

Disney On Ice • Pixar's Toy Story 3

Disney On Ice • Pixar's Toy Story 3

I recenlty went to Disney On Ice Toy Story 3 and it was incredible!  The lights were bright, the characters were spot on, and the skaters were amazing and had me feeling like I could get out there on the ice with ease.  My friend and I brought some of our daughters and we were all glued to our seat the whole show through.  The show lasts about 2 hours and 15 minutes, with an intermission in between.  Be sure to get your face painted, get your cotton candy with either a Buzz hat or alien hat attached to the bag, and buy your Toy Story 3 gear.  

If you missed this show, be sure to go over to Disney On Ice online to find out when the next show is coming our way.  You can see more pictures from the show at my family blog, www.barnettes.com.

Black youth both young men and women are being

reports and  another one or two minute sound bite
for news media.

Hazing/Bullying: Duality of Physical Violence

William Jackson, M.Ed.

The issue of Hazing and Bullying has created a new level
of concern for parents sending their children to college.
The elevated incidence of injuries and harm (physical,
emotional, psychological) and deaths of those falling victim
to the violence that is the result of inflicting suffering and
pain upon another person.

Bullying has many forms from verbal harassment, sexual
assaults (and favors), cyber threats and physical attacks.  
All used to create an environment of fear, trepidation and
compliance to the wishes of the tormentor(s). Hazing is
the execution of psychological manipulation, physical
violence and emotional persuasion to create conditions
of servitude (serving those who execute hazing) and
creating circumstances of acceptance for violence and
humiliation to gain entrance into an organization.

The lethality of words can create psychological and
emotional damage that can span years in a person’s
life. Creating damage to a person’s inner being,
their self-confidence, self-awareness and even the
ability to appreciate their own self-worth.
