Down the Rabbit Hole With Miss Christa - Why the Loud and Rude Kids Are Our Future

Hello Hello and Happy Tuesday!

With Halloween (my absolute FAVORITE) holiday coming just around the corner. I was thinking about who I might want to be. Does anyone remember Rufio, from the movie Pan?

I was so influenced by Rufio's character and it hasn't been until recently where I've actually reflected on the reason behind that; Rufio was a natural leader. He was strong and took on the responsibility of his brothers to make sure they were safe and happy in the absence of their original leader. Rufio went through a magnificent metamorphosis throughout the movie. Initially, he was headstrong, arrogant and frankly a little rude. When he realized that these traits weren't productive for him, he changed his tune and became the leader that he truly was.

My experiences with varying youths have shown me those very qualities. Youth that are seen as stubborn, rude, bossy, or simply marching to the beat of their own drum are sometimes seen as disruptive. My question is, how are we helping those youth grow into the leaders that they have the potential to be? Are we providing a structured environment that encourages thinking outside of the box, but also being mindful of how their actions effect others? Are we saying "Stop yelling, stop being so rude?" or, are we maybe actually hearing what the youth is saying and finding a way to redirect that energy?

While difficult at times, I believe it is possible to recognize "negative" behaviors, and find ways to redirect those behaviors into qualities that will benefit the youth displaying them and teaching them how to use those qualities for something constructive for themselves and their community. Our leaders

I was raised to embrace being myself and learned from an early age that it's okay to be different and there will be people different from me. That is one of many lessons that I am eternally grateful for learning. Just like everything else, every one has a role to play and there is a niche for our personalities. It's all about finding what fits you.

Because I had some amazing influences in my life I was able to value my unique personality and use those abilities to help those around me.

So, the next time you come across a Rufio, or maybe you're raising or teaching one right now, not all hope is lost. It takes a village to raise a child <3

Take care, Everyone

  1. The foal has effectively won on American turf, taking in front of the rest of the competition in a year ago's Breeders' Cup Juvenile.

    Mendelssohn doesn't have history on his side, be that as it may: In 12 attempts, no UAE Derby victor has ever proceeded to win the Derby or even completed on the platform.

    Great Magic and Bolt d'Oro were the two sprinters who demonstrated the best shape in 2017, and the last has sat at or close to the highest point of the board for some oddsmakers in the previous couple of months.

    He'll be under Victor Espinoza at Churchill Downs―the same move who worked with California Chrome and American Pharoah―and has inspired with his work paving the way to the race.

    He was soundly beaten by Justify in the Santa Anita Derby, be that as it may:

    That thrashing should opening him behind Justify with the oddsmakers.


    Discussing Justify: With three prevailing wins in three vocation begins, the foal is required to begin the Derby as the chances on top choice.

    Legitimize seems to have all that one could request in a Derby contender, joining rankling crude speed and extraordinary stamina with an easy walk. There's only one noteworthy thing he does not have: a resume as a two-year-old.

    No pony has won the Run for the Roses without dashing as a two-year-old since Apollo in 1882. Legitimize and Magnum Moon, another significant contender, will attempt to end that streak, yet they'll confront a tremendous test.Breeders Cup 2018 Live Stream

  2. "The significant financial investment from this new 'betting tax' given by the other states into their racing industries is in stark contrast to what is shown in Queensland.

    "Whilst this industrial action is certainly not the industry participants preferred response, the government's lack of understanding of the importance of the current situation in Queensland, leaves us with no alternative."
