The organization leases the property from the City of Long Beach for $1 per year. The campus contains five buildings, which house the organization’s administration and the various programs.Some AR&C clients live with their families, and others live in group homes. Many of them are transported to and from the AR&C campus in busses and vans, or cars driven by family members. Others take public transportation, and a few of them drive themselves.Harry Van Loon, AR&C executive director, noted that approximately 400 individuals depend on the services provided by the organization, which offers four different programs to its clients.“In our supported-employment program, we get the clients to fill out the application and get them hired at various businesses in the area,” Van Loon said Continue reading

Fairy Tail Character | Midnight

Midnight is a Mage that belongs to the Oracion Seis guild, a dark guild composed of highly powerful Mages whose goal is to find a power known as Nirvana, a very destructive power that was sealed away long ago. After the rebirth of Oración Seis he now calls himself Brain II.For most of the time he is sleeping on a floating carpet, waiting for orders.

Hey Look, More Thoughts on Bike Lanes

You’d think by now I’d have hashed this through.First and foremost I need to issue an apology to the Association for Bicycle Commuting in Red Deer. In my last post I called them myopic. In hindsight, that was an unfair assertion by me because at the end of the day, the Association didn’t go out and paint the lanes on the road by themselves. As has been pointed out – and I did know this but my crankiness got in the way – the bike lanes are the work of a huge planning group that the Association is a part of.So John, Steven, Grant and the rest of the committee, please accept my apologies for throwing you under the metaphorical bus.There is a bigger issue at stake here, beyond whether or not I like the 40Ave bike lane (my stance on the lane itself hasn’t changed). Two days ago in the Red Deer Advocate, former Councillor Vesna Higham wrote that the bike lanes will be a disaster because parents like her need to drive their kids to school at Lindsay Thurber.Therein lies the crux of the problem. Continue reading

Building Self Esteem:Changing Beliefs |

Building Self Esteem: Changing your BeliefsWhen you ask someone about their ‘beliefs’, the reaction of most people will be to cast their minds towards religion. However, when we discuss Beliefs that may be halting yourcareer, we are talking about a very different subject.Specifically, we are talking about self-belief, or in many cases, a lack of it.But what causes our Beliefs to hinder our career or business progress and other areas of our lives?We act in accordance to our beliefs and these actions determine our results. The old saying ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’ should really be ‘I see it when I believe it’. We only really see or hear what we want to hear. Continue reading

Developing Self-Esteem in Children – Principle #4

Our goal in discussing principles for developing self-esteem in children is to help them through their developmental stages emotionally intact and with the resilience to handle the complex issues life may  bring. Principle 4 tells how to give our children confidence and a feeling of reasonable control over their lives.A child needs structure to become secure and strongA child learns confidence from clear rules and structure.I think anyone who is a caregiver for a child wants that child to be strong, confident, capable and secure as he grows from dependence to independence of adulthood. A child learns confidence from clear rules and structure.Every child needs rules and structure in his life. He needs to know that certain rules cannot be negotiated or disputed, especially those around safety and morals that are important to and impact the family. An example of this kind of rule is: there will be no verbal or physical hurting of another family member.It is also important that children are encouraged to make some choices on their own wherever possible, such as: which of two outfits to wear, the type of cereal to eat for breakfast, and what play activities they would like during free time.  Why?  Because one of the most significant part of growing up is making choices, realizing the consequences of those choices and feeling some sense of satisfaction and pride in making those choices. What happens when a child’s personal power does not have a chance to develop?Children who are given some control—or what we at Lakeside call personal power—will gain a sense of confidence at a very early age; whereas, children who are made to feel ineffective will quickly begin to experience shame and a sense of helplessness. This is particularly, true if a caregiver draws attention to a child’s mistake and then, instead of helping the child make amends, makes him feel ashamed, worthless or incompetent.This principle works for teens, tooGiving teenagers who are struggling with a lot of issues personal power by offering them choices is vital to their ability to change and heal. Lakeside works with many teenagers who have been blamed and shamed, and the idea of giving them choices and allowing them to bear the consequences of those choices, good or bad, without blame or shame, empowers them and begins to foster confidence and change.I think each of us likes to think we have some level of control in our respective worlds.  When we feel we have no control (or if we feel incapable of making decisions on our own) then we usually have low self-esteem and become dependent on others for our stability in life.  Moreover, we tend to make poor decisions because we base them on our shame or inadequacies rather than the good experiences we have had in learning how to make decisions.As caregivers, we need to start early and offer children the chance to grow confident by making little decisions.
