Your child is slow…

You may not be aware that one of the reasons why I am so passionate about spreading and educating the values of LOVE & RESPECT, is because for a long time in my life, I did not feel LOVE & RESPECT. Many incidents in my life but I will share one for now. Today, one incident happened that triggered a memory from my past of a person in authority, a teacher. When I was 8 years old. I could not grasp Maths, didn’t understand anything about it and I was labelled lazy, slow and stupid by the teacher in front of my class. I believed I was that until my late mother realized something was not right and took responsibility. She started to teach me Maths herself and got my confidence back up through empowerment. By that time I was about 10 and she was going through cancer treatments. I went on to do Maths as a minor in University. I revisited my Primary school when in the University to educate the kids on environmental issues at the time and met the teacher who labelled me slow and stupid. She was shocked that I have a Minor degree in Math, 
Today, unfortunately, one of my daughter’s teachers came over to me and called her “slow” and said I should get her tested. That memory and the same emotion I felt surfaced, and I gave the teacher a short brief on the power of words and the dangers of her “name calling”. I will be addressing this to the school tomorrow so please send prayers that our teachers, educators, lecturers, parents, leaders, politicians, learn and have awareness on the importance of LOVE & RESPECT. Ignorance and egotistical values has caused so much hurt and chaos in our society and the world. Spreading knowledge without LOVE & RESPECT only creates more materialistic, valueless, and unhappy people in the world. Its time for positive changes to happen. ENOUGH with the old system of education. TEACHERS, SPREAD LOVE AND RESPECT!

“If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, she learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame, she learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, she learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness, she learns justice.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval, she learns to like herself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world.”
(Dorothy Law Nolte)
