IN CHARGE PARENTS REVERSE THE BULLYING DYNAMIC


IN CHARGE PARENTS REVERSE THE BULLYING DYNAMIC
By Domenick J. Maglio, Ph.D., Traditional Realist

Parents need to be “in charge” to demonstrate to their children that they are strong. This is essential for children need to know that their parents are strong enough to protect them from people who want to take advantage of them. They are the original and ultimate authority figures.

Parents lay down the foundation of respect for following the rules and learning to listen to adults. Every other authority figure in the child’s life such as teacher, police, minister and coach are or are not going to be respected depending on the authority the parents have established in the home.

Too many modern parents are over protecting their children from a lack of faith in their parenting skills and their youngster’s ability to mature into a courageous and independent person. This lack of belief in their child to grow into a formidable person becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The reverse dynamic occurs when a child views the parent as weak. He realizes his parents do not possess the gumption to protect him. This uncertainty in the parent’s inner strength turns the child inward to handle his own affairs in an awkward or anxious manner. He has no back up.

An angry ungrateful child will seek out naïve, weaker ones to intimidate. If the target child does not pass the test in front of his peers, he will be relentlessly exploited. Unfortunately this child will probably not report this problem to his weak parents. He feels that the intimidator is stronger than his wimpy parent and realizes his parent will not do anything to stop it.

Too frequently in bullying situations, the “victim” (child) will duplicate what he experienced with the bully on another child. He will use what he learned from the bully on an even weaker child. This pathetic cycle of being abused and abusing others usually will continue until the child gets mentally strong enough to stand up to the bully.

The toughest appearing bully when confronted by a stronger person will react as a subservient “wimp.” A youngster that chooses to bully a more vulnerable child is an insecure individual. When a child becomes an emotionally secure person he or she has no need to torment others. This emotional strength is galvanized only when she stands down someone who tries to bully her.

It is the actions of the child that show he has had enough by refusing to take any more nonsense that stops the bullying game.

Once a wimp courageously stands down a bully verbally or physically confronting the bully, the child will no longer be considered a wimp to himself. He will no longer need to bully or be bullied. He will be more confident in his ability to handle his own battles.

In charge parents have inherent faith in their children based on their strong child rearing practices. They are parents who work hard to instill traditional values and thought processes into the minds of their child. Moderate spanking is employed when the child is in the toddler stage to get his attention and reinforce the parent’s knowledge of reality.

The reality-oriented parent understands that age and size differences between the peers should be reasonably close. This equalization of size and age eliminates many potential bullying incidents where the child would be at a severe disadvantage to stand up for himself. These strong parents will encourage their child to stand up to the bully since they realize the bully then and only then will leave him alone.

Knowing the bully will search out a weaker target so as not to be exposed as the coward he is. While the weak parent will teach that giving in is the best policy for their child with bullies. Parent’s interaction with their child sets the tone of how the child will perceive himself.

The reality is a bully is a wimp and a wimp is a bully depending on the circumstances.  Weak parents have a difficult time giving encouragement to their child to grow up. When parents are fearless in dealing with their child they are role-modeling strength.

This show of strength teaches the child the parent can protect him or her. It sets an expectation that the parent will be disappointed or upset if their child does not follow suit. The powerful parents develop stronger youngsters while the reverse is true for the wimpy ones. A parent who is confident is his child’s ability to handle his own problems empowers him.

An in charge parent has prepared his child to be strong whenever confronted by a bully. The children who believe in themselves present themselves in a competent and determined manner. Strong parents foster confidence in their children that naturally repels bullies.

REVISING OUR FOUNDING FATHER'S RELIGIOUS AND MORAL BELIEFS


REVISING OUR FOUNDING FATHER'S RELIGIOUS AND MORAL BELIEFS
By Domenick J. Maglio Ph.d. Traditional Realist

The progressive's obsession of justifying a secular society by denying the Judeo-Christian roots of our nation is blatantly absurd. This particular attempt at revising our history is a testimony that progressives will not be impeded by the facts. They just pound the lie into our minds through pseudo experts in the media, universities, and in our public schools. Eventually the historical lies became almost fact.

The only impediment to this propaganda is the actual words spoken by our founding leaders during the establishment of our nation. These learned men studied history and had the actual first hand experience of dealing with the oppression of the most powerful and corrupt political power at the time: Great Britain, headed by King George III.

These heroic men's words clearly stated that our constitutional republic can only be successful when its people are firmly grounded in religion and Christian, Judaic morals. They knew that citizens need strong virtues in an open and free society.
“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.” John Adams
“Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.” George Washington
“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious they have more need of masters.” Benjamin Franklin
“Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled by a power within them either by the word of God or the strong arm of men; either by the Bible or the bayonet.” Robert Winthrop

The evidence that colonial America in the late 1700s was a Christian nation led by men guided by Judaic Christian faith based belief system is undeniable and self evident. Most of our founding fathers came to America to practice their Christian religion without interference from government. Religious freedom in the new world was a primary motivation for the pilgrims forging a new life in uncivilized land.

The Pilgrims who arrived on the American shores were for the most part seeking religion and economic freedom. In 1607, Robert Hunt, an Anglican minister, founded Jamestown on the Virginia coast. The original charter for the Virginia colonies goal was the “propagating of Christian religion.” In 1620 the Mayflower established Plymouth colony, a faith based endeavor in what is today the State of Massachusetts. A third of the first arrivals on the Mayflower were of the Puritan sect know as Separatists. They separated from the Church of England and came to practice their religion freely. The Mayflower Compact contained the words, “in the Glory of God and the advancement of the Christian religious freedoms.”

There was not the slightest indicator that these men wanted to eliminate morals and faith from their daily lives. They came to live their beliefs. Roger Williams established a colony of faith in Rhode Island in 1640. He opened it to all religions for the belief that individuals have the right to practice their own faith. William Penn founded Pennsylvania Society of Friends, Quakers. George Calvert, Lord Baltimore, established Maryland as a haven for Catholics although Protestants made up a significant portion of the population. The Great Awakening was established by Jonathan Edwards in 1740s.

Our founding fathers were mostly of the Christian faith. Sam Adams was a devout Calvinist evangelist. His cousin, John Adams, stated he was a Christian. He was an independent thinker rather than a Deist or a Unitarian. There were amongst these principled men humanists, rationalists or deists but they were few in number in the Continental Congress. Almost all the delegates had been educated in Christian colleges and were influenced by general Christian principles. Our national monuments have inscriptions praising God and the majority of them prayed to God for guidance in making decisions.

Without these religious beliefs our Constitution would not be a Creator inspired document. It would just be another piece of paper written by ordinary men that would be readily altered for the benefit of the ruling class.

Judeo-Christian roots have nourished our soul as a nation. The only logical answer for these present progressive activist's attempt to rewrite a well documented history of the founding of America is to rip out its roots in order to transform it.

These radicals want an atheist secular society. They reasoned a country without religion would be more pliable to manipulate into a progressive nation.

The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness could easily be erased as a right endowed by our Creator. The wall of separation between religion and governance can only make sense if these men did not have firmly ingrained morals and religion precepts.

The ridiculousness with the atheist progressive argument for a secular society is the fact that our founders were undeniably men who believed in the sanctity of the document they created.

America's survival as a nation depends on all citizens understanding our incredible blessings that have been derived from our daily practicing of the Word of God.

TRANSGENDER IS ANOTHER FAD INDICATING A SOCIETY OUT OF WHACK


TRANSGENDER IS ANOTHER FAD INDICATING A SOCIETY OUT OF WHACK
By Domenick J. Maglio, Ph.D. Traditional Realist


Our nation was established with understanding and respect for natural law. The founders realized that attempting to change human nature was futile.  This non-reality orientation would evolve into a non-functioning society. Perversion of nature produces guilt, frustration and self-loathing in an individual.

These wise men are probably rolling over in their graves looking down at our upside-down nation.  Productive citizens are financially penalized while dependency is rewarded. Our police are portrayed as evil-doers while killers and looters are seen as innocent victims. Illegal immigrants are given priority over legal immigrants. Traditional men and women’s roles are obsolescent while changing your sex has become cutting edge.

In the recent past when toddlers pretended to be a dog or a superhero like Superman, parents and others traditionally set them straight. There was no way to legitimize this behavior.

In the new progressive culture we are promoting bizarre choices. On the application for college entrance, students are asked to identify themselves as male, female or “in transition.“ What ?? There are too many ridiculous choices that are warping normality. 

The recent fad of two young girls walking arm-in-arm down high school halls kissing each other created instant celebrity status. Identifying oneself as the opposite sex is becoming the vogue of today.

A Fairfax school district has passed a transsexual rights bill that would allow any student to self identify its sex without consulting the parents. Girl Scout USA is now accepting transgender boys on a case-by-case basis. Parents of children in grades k-3 in Kittery public school in Maine have just learned their children have been taught from a transsexual indoctrination book. “I am a young child with a boy’s body but a girl’s brain” is the theme of the book. There is a miniscule group of parents who are beginning to seek reassignment surgery for their youngsters. These naïve parents feel it will make their child’s transition from one sex to another less traumatic.

There are many parents and college students who think it is caring to be accepting of any person with weird and confused feelings. A student can express that they think they are a squirrel and be taken seriously. Our culture has coined the term “otherkin” to describe the person who identifies partially or wholly with a non-human or an inanimate object. Instead of correcting the child that she is not a bird, vampire, elf, or an inanimate object, they are going along with these fantasies.

A few parents are using a similar approach when a child states he feels like he should be the opposite gender. Modern parents are not reinforcing what the child was actually born as but are appeasing the child or making an avant-garde statement by pretending he or she has the right and ability to just choose his/her sex. The parent who wants the child to self-express to get in touch with himself or herself is being an accomplice to more confusion and a traumatic lifestyle.

Many parents are unwilling to nip the child’s identity confusion in the bud. The reality intervention of telling the child to cut out this nonsense would be considered by some to be intolerant and mean spirited. Telling the truth is a kind act.

These utterances, thoughts and feelings, were supposed to be tolerated as a temporary phase. Now too many psychological/education experts are arguing it is even a human right to be whatever a person wants to be.

Parents were the anchors that laid down the parameters of acceptable and unacceptable thoughts and actions. Boys do not have babies, girls do. Boys grow into courageous men who protect others. Girls nurture and shape the children to whom they gave birth. Boys cannot be girls and girls cannot be boys. Even with reassignment surgery this is a partial anatomical change but the person’s DNA remains the same.

The creation of antidiscrimination laws to make transgender a protected class does not solve the mental and emotional dilemma in the head of the person.

The majority of citizens might be bullied by political correctness and punitive antidiscrimination laws to conform but this will not appease these dissatisfied individuals. In college where tolerance/PC is religiously practiced even sympathetic students get annoyed with transsexual students who are offended if someone calls the person “he” when he wants to be called “she” when the next day he might want to be called something else. This is an insane situation for the most empathetic person to handle day after day.

The majority should not be punished for the few who suffer from this. This confusion and dissatisfied person should be directed to psychological therapy for help. Our progressive “experts” should not use punitive discrimination laws to force the majority to placate the disturbed few.

THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE IS WEAKENING THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD


THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE IS WEAKENING THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD
By Domenick J. Maglio, Ph.d. Traditional Realist

The childrearing process forms the foundation of a child’s behavior, moral values, attitudes and belief system. Parents, primarily mothers, were responsible for caring during the formative years of the child’s life. The fathers traditionally provided the necessary goods, shelter and safety for the family.

In the past half-century the individuals caring for the child has shifted from mothers to child care professionals, other relatives and friends.

The feminist movement and a radical change in parenting philosophy fostered by Dr. Benjamin Spock’s permissive-materialistic childrearing has resulted in lazy parenting. This approach has greased the track for mothers to enter the labor market with children and even infants at home.

Presently there are more stay at home fathers than in the past although in most modern families, both parents work. Grandparents often take over the traditional parent functions since parents have to stay late, travel out of town for days at a time to maintain their positions.  Other grandparents are given quasi to full custody of their grandchildren for assorted reasons due to their own child’s dysfunction.

Many jobs are demanding more work be done at home after office hours. This results in parents asking their relatives to care for the children for extended periods or even regular days during the week. The parents are relegated to being friends with the children while the grandparents are dealing with nitty-gritty issues with their grandchildren. They do this gingerly so as not to offend their own child or the spouse.

There is no one in charge of youngsters in this ever changing and unstable world. Our children are suffering from not having specific standards and expectations for their development. This behavioral chaos is confusing.  This negatively impacts not only these future generations, but the vitality and direction of nations.

The proverb goes, “the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” William Ross

Numerous government service programs in nation after nation have been developed to decrease the apprehension of parents leaving their child for a career. Governments are increasing their reach to shape the minds of children. Most are no longer respecting the sanctity of the family and parental rights. Governments are prohibiting parents from using traditional methods of discipline. Parental authority and even moderate spanking are being undermined. 

The permissive materialistic child rearing practice has spread to families across the globe. It has weakened the traditional power of parents over their children. Modern parents are unwilling or unable to control their own children. They are not in charge. Children are allowed to make significant life decisions that they have not been trained for or possess the maturity to make appropriately. Too many of these youngster’s unguided actions are life altering, which often places them in a hole that they have difficulty digging themselves out.

The nanny-central government jumps in rewarding them financially or providing a program that will “re-educate,” propagandize them to be more supportive and conforming to their government’s mandates. In essence, they trade their freedom for being bailed out of foolish actions they committed.

Crimes, unwanted pregnancies and dysfunctional lifestyles are attributed to socioeconomic conditions rather than to bad choices. The people in these dire circumstances are considered victims. Rather than receiving natural consequences for their decisions these people have become entitled to special programs giving them privileges for their future votes.

Instead of becoming self reliant and independent, the nanny world government elites are structuring these societies to produce dependent “sheeple.” These are non- thinking, easily led people.

The breakdown of parent’s power in the family has hurt the child’s respect for authority. This invaluable social unit’s decay has to be reversed. Only strong parents unleashed from the restraints of not being “in charge” parents rocking the cradle as loving parents did for centuries will bring back strong and independent youngsters and adults.

There are no more invested adults than the parents to shape the child in every way.  Normal parents have their child’s interest at heart making sure the child has the necessary knowledge and training to become a successful citizen.

When government institutions attempt to raise children, the government’s interest comes first.  They educate and re-educate through adulthood to increase dependency and allegiance to an all-powerful state.

Governments need to respect the sanctity and rights of parents. Governmental intervention into the parent-child relationship should be eliminated. These insidious programs are weakening the family bond that nurtures independent citizens. These people are the backbone of keeping the nation free.

PARENTS HAVE A RIGHT AND RESPONSIBLITY TO CONTROL THEIR CHILD'S LEARNING


PARENTS HAVE A RIGHT AND RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTROL THEIR CHILD'S LEARNING
By Domenick J;. Maglio PhD. Traditional Realist


In tribal times the necessary skills were passed down from parent to child. The roles and expectations were clearly defined by the clans spoken history. Choices were simple and limited. People learned from adult role modeling. They also shared their knowledge in specific activities and chores.

In the Golden Age of Greece philosopher -teachers were sought after by the powerful. They wanted these self-educated men to shape the minds of their children through learning. They chose the educator, specified the areas of learning and intimately monitored the process.

As civilizations grew, knowledge and choices immensely increased. The most wise and even average parent realized that they did not have sufficient expertise, objectivity and time to teach their children all they needed to know to be successful in a complex society.

Fast-forward to the 21st Century and our schools have become more centrally controlled where education has morphed into caretakers of our children forever increasing duration. Some cities throughout the United States have been designated as official public boarding schools to supposedly lessen the socioeconomic deficit of the children. Todays schools are providing meals, healthcare and indoctrination to assist the social engineering of our society.  Most educated experts are advocates of a longer school day and year to influence the child’s development.

Modern parents are less willing and able to accurately evaluate their childs academic success. They primarily accept the inflated grades the children are receiving as true indicators of their progress. It is easier than digging deeper into what is happening in our schools. Eventually they realize their child has become different from what they had wanted and expected. The innocent child has grown into a jaded, self-centered tweener that they realize is beyond their power to alter. Too often they do not understand or even like their own child.

Parents initially blamed the changes in their children on Hollywood and the media more than on the schools. They are presently becoming more aware that the propaganda from their child’s government school is posing as curriculum and is changing his attitudes towards them and their traditional values. Although they are realizing that the Federal Department of Education is dictating school policies through federal mandates and the Common Core Curriculum guidelines that are more in line with progressive atheist intellectuals than Judeo-Christian values.

The antidote to progressive, centrally controlled “education” is a return to small neighborhood schools. It is where teachers spent sufficient time with students to know them as individuals rather than just a number. Individual states have the responsibility under the constitution for the education of children. The local communities need to reassert their authority.

 Parents should and need to support efforts for local community control over their school and fight for education that conforms to their expectations of quality learning. Local neighborhood schools controlled by the average parental wishes rather than anonymous bureaucrats will make education relevant to students and families. Parents will be more able to influence what and how their children are taught. This will recreate a diversity of schools depending on the reality of the community. There will be a menu of alternative programs to pick from. 

When parents are on the same page as those in charge of their childs education, the learning is more effective than when there is disagreement or blatant disregard for the rights of parents.

It is time for America to demand results from their school tax dollars. No longer can selective politically aspiring politicians be window dressing for the county board of education’s "phony educational process." School districts are often the largest employer with the largest budget in the county. School districts are a big industry controlled from the top for the benefit of the connected rather than the average student.

Parents need to assert themselves to demonstrate their right to approve their child’s education. They need to be making the decisions for more than half the child's waking hours, which take place in school.

Educators do not work for the county board of education, the state or the D.C. government. They should be working for the students and parents and the future of our children. It is time for parents to regain their right and responsibility over their child's education.

IT IS NOT WHAT THE TEACHER KNOWS OR HAS TAUGHT


IT IS NOT WHAT THE TEACHER KNOWS OR HAS TAUGHT
By Domenick J. Maglio Ph.D. traditional Realist

In our present educational industry we are producing teachers with an erroneous belief that the more courses, certificates and degrees obtained, the better teacher they are. It is true they will receive a higher pay level with more credentials but these pieces of paper do not insure the quality of their teaching.

Being a great or even a good teacher does not depend on the teacher’s ability to regurgitate information, have a large vocabulary of educational jargon or even the know-it-all aura that she or he is the next Robin Williams in the “Dead Poet Society.”

It is not how much the teacher knows or has lectured about, but rather what each of her students has absorbed and really knows.

When a child passes a current test, it does not indicate the child has placed the information in his long-term memory. Short-term memory is what most of our public schools are testing. Children learn particular information, which they are tested on during the week although not all the questions are corrected or marked. The teacher moves on to other material regardless if the student knows it or was even present.

There is no flexibility for the teacher to assist each child individually because of time constraints. The teacher is mandated to move the entire class forward. The teacher has to religiously follow this top down curriculum, which is highly influenced by the state and presently by the national administration through Common Core. The standards and expectations are rigidly set for particular grade levels not considering the developmental level reached by each child.

The detailed script given to the teacher by the administration restricts her creativity with rigid time lines to be met. The creative freedom they can take is limited to augmenting the lessons. This can be accomplished at their own peril since it can interrupt the pace causing the entire class to fall behind the tight schedule.

This robotic process governing modern teachers is killing the teacher’s gratification of being a significant person in student’s lives. They no longer have that daily time or the years of student involvement they had in neighborhood or small schools. The fifty-minute or even two hours is not enough exposure to develop the strong student-teacher relationship that is necessary to impact academic and character development of the student.

This handcuffing of our teachers is making many caring and wonderful people resentful. Their best ideas and inclinations in teaching are being stifled against their better judgment to conscientiously follow their detailed instructions.

The worst part of this process for the teacher is the students that she taught overwhelmingly forgot what she had conscientiously taught them. The teacher initially gets upset with students that are unable to perform well in their subject areas. “I taught you this information. I can’t believe you forgot!” Eventually the teacher realizes not only her students but most of the students in other classes are not doing well on normative testing. Her anger rightfully turns directly to the unreasonable approach she is forced to use.

The only conclusion that any honest teacher can make is the directions from above are flawed because they are not working. On deeper analysis the teacher realizes that the students needed more reinforcement and review to put the information permanently into his long-term memory. Too many teachers feel there are too many things to learn in too short a time for the majority of students. There is also no time allowed for internalizing new information and integrating it with other knowledge to gain a clear understanding.

These counter productive educational practices are happening all over the country and are devastating the morale of teachers. They want to make a positive impact on the lives of their students as teachers did in the past.

The spotlight has to be shifted from the elaborate school facility, the incredibly complicated educational programs and “entertaining” highly credentialed teachers. The emphasis has to be returned to enhancing each student’s academic ability and ultimately to his performance to be a self-learner.

Education is and should be all about the student’s mastery of academic skills and character development not a vehicle for social engineering of a utopian society.

The individual student’s performance should guide the teacher not unrealistic standards that sound good on paper but are creating unnecessary failure for bright students and dedicated teachers.

COMPROMISING WOULD BE FATAL FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS


COMPROMISING WOULD BE FATAL FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS
By Domenick J. Maglio, PhD. Traditional Realist

Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue. Barry Goldwater

Starting with republican president, Theodore Roosevelt, and the democrat president, Woodrow Wilson, the progressive movement has gradually eroded the Founding Father’s principles on which our country was founded.

In a century we have moved from being proud to be free and doing what we want with our own property. Today many of the dependency class are demanding more and more government services. In exchange for these services there has been a significant increase in the size of government and a corresponding loss of personal property and freedom especially in the middle class.

As the size of government has exploded so has its arrogance. Instead of the government serving the people the citizens need to comply with government bureaucrats, “expert’s” demands or suffer the ridiculous consequences of government penalties and enforced regulations.

The bloating of government has resulted in increased confiscation of citizen’s money through a creative array of taxes.  These policies of government have reduced the motivation of the people to be self-reliant, moral citizens. As the government has crept into every crevice of our lives we have become a weaker, more fearful people.

The middle class sees everything that it has struggled for disappearing. The earning power and opportunity to climb the socio economic ladder has dwindled.

Retaining office has become the major goal of career politicians. They have made outrageous promises that are impossible to keep regardless of the money confiscated from middle class citizens.  The productive middle class is the small businessmen and middle management in corporations that drive our economy.

The ruling class has exponentially increased the debt with wasting tax dollars by bribing uninformed “give me” adults for their votes. This rapidly increasing snowball of debt rolling down a hill is the reason citizens unknown to each other have realized the government has gone wild in its spending and has to be stopped. These diverse middle class people have become a formidable force that could change the direction of the nation.

These isolated yet like-minded citizens were originally known as Tea Party members. These law abiding middle class people quickly realized that most politician’s words, regardless of political affiliation, should not be trusted. They have concluded the major concern of our representation was to be re-elected to maintain power not serve the interest of the people or the nation.

This movement had horrified republican and democrat progressives. Compromising of principles has been the strategy of progressives to chip away at the foundation of our constitutional republic. The status quo political establishment had to attack the middle class faithful and their supporters. They used nasty diatribes with such words as “teabaggers”, “right wingnuts,” terrorists and worse to discredit them.

Instead this has morphed into a broader middle class movement by shining the light on the political shenanigans, finance and Constitutional disregard, which is undermining our governmental system.

People from both parties have realized that the only way to save our nation from government servitude is to elect principled representatives who will do what is best for the nation in the long run. These leaders realize that continual compromise will only slow down our march to totalitarianism.

These committed believers of the blueprint of limited government through our Constitution and Bill of Rights are willing to stand up to be heard. Patriots comprehended we need a new breed of representatives. We need those who would fight courageously for principles of limited government rather than the self-interest of returning to office.

This strategy of filling the halls of congress with representatives for the people necessitated the voters be vigilant to make sure that politicians’ words match their deeds.

Only by weeding out political opportunists can informed voters accomplish their goal of a solid base of representatives with integrity.  Honesty and sincerity are essential for returning the local and state governments back to the people.

The American public stood up in the 2014 midterm elections by selecting principled candidates who will pay long-term dividends for liberty. All freedom loving Americans should be committed to turn our national ship around again towards the land of opportunity and freedom.
