Children are among the most vulnerable road users because of their varying developmental stages.
Help kids learn safe pedestrian skills. Give them opportunities for discussion and practice in real-world situations that help them become familiar with their neighbourhood.
You can teach your children the skills to become confident, safe and independent pedestrians by being a role model. Show kids how to:
Choose where to walk. Choose routes with good accessibility, walkability, and lighting.
Find the best places to cross. Never assume a pedestrian “Walk” signal, or a marked crosswalk, makes you 100 per cent safe or to look left and right severally before crossing at a safe point.
Assess a vehicle’s speed.
Judge safe gaps in traffic. Check every lane of traffic and gap (just because one vehicle has stopped does not mean others will).
Walk with full attention. Don’t be distracted, be aware of surroundings, and don’t use electronic devices or focus on catching a Pokemon while crossing a road.
Be as visible to vehicle drivers as possible.
Teaching your kids all these drastically reduces the chances of getting into an accident and keeps them safe.

The THROW IN
If the ball leaves the field along one of the touch lines—the two longest lines that run parallel to the goal lines—it is put back into play with a throw in.
The throw in is awarded to whichever team did not touch the ball last before it went out.
▫️To perform a legal throw in, a player must keep both feet on the ground behind the touchline near the spot where the ball went out and begin the throw with the ball behind his head.
▫️The player must also have two hands on the ball and throw from behind and over the head, from the point where where it left the field of play.
•The ball is in play when it enters in the field of the play.
•If the balls touches the ground before entering, the throw-in is retaken by the same team, from the same position.
•All oponentes must stand at least 2m(2yrds) from the poor at which the throw-in is taken.
•The thrower must not touch the ball again until it has touched another player.
•If the referee deems that a “foul throw” has been committed, he may award a throw in to the other team from the same spot.
❗️ A GOL 🥅 cannot be scored directly from a THROW-IN:
• if the ball enters the opponents’ goal – a goal kick is awarded.
• if the ball enters the thrower’s goal – a corner kick is awarded.

arguments aren’t bad; if you know how to disagree.😱
conflict and arguments are often seen as negative and things to be avoided. yet researchers suggest that the process of conflict and arguing facilitates talk and awareness of another’s perspective. 🧐
conflict is everywhere. arguments are part of life. let’s face it, different people think different, feel different, and communicate different. the topics that we argue about remind us what is important, what we value and what we believe in. conflict is necessary for creativity and development.
however, it has to be constructive. 🚧
i believe that arguments are not bad. the way we argue may be. arguing is a SKILL. a skill that most of us don’t have.
the purpose of an argument IS NOT 🙅♀️ to win, but to express clearly how we feel or what we think about a certain topic or situation.
the skill you need to learn is how to disagree constructively. 😉
i love the PREP method although i don’t always master it 🤪
E= EXPRESS w/o “but”
here is an example >>> say someone says “all civilians should have guns” and you strongly disagree.
✖️you pause. don’t interrupt the other person to explain your point of view. it helps to breath when you pause especially if you feel strongly about something.
✖️you show respect through partial agreement >>> “i see what you are saying” ; “i agree with you in one context: if you live in an unsafe area.”
✖️you express your idea; the trick here is to avoid using BUT, so you remove friction from your argument. >>> “I believe people with guns make more damage than good. there are a lot of people with mental illness out there”.
✖️then you pause again and let the other person respond if they want to.
some people avoid arguments. i get it... most of us are not sure how to manage them. 🤯 i can’t help but thinking ...if conflict and arguments ( i am not saying heated arguments) are not part of your life; you are:
- not being authentic
- being highly influenced by others is not about the absence of conflict, but management of the disagreement.
how do you handle conflict? 🤔

As I sit in my car, I think back to all the times I was worried about what everyone thought of me, thought of my body
I fueled my workouts by looking the best I could, even though I lacked the knowledge behind what I was trying to do
I had this fixation on having the perception I knew everything while I hardly knew anything. Not to say I know everything today (far from it) yet so much more in a few short years
Social media, peers, friends, family and your self have so much impact on some of our life choices. I thought if I looked the best I could look my business would be successful. Clients came but ultimately a lot of them left.
About 2 (almost 3 years later) my mind has grown, I’m saving my updated physical transformation for a few more months but this man on the right he gets it.
He’s not faking his knowledge by saying look at me, look at my body, you can be what I am. (Also, not saying people in shape don’t know what they’re talking about but just to stay alert)
He’s now teaching and sculpting others backed my knowledge in what he does.
The moral of this post is not to be fooled by those who look the role and are good at playing the part. In a world were perception is everything, dig a little deeper.
#MeToo erupted two years ago, as women and men around the world spoke up - many for the first time - about their encounters with sexual assault and harassment. Never before had the world heard such a wave of stories, centering on suffering, trauma and abuse of power. For many speakers and listeners alike, this marked a new, and often difficult, experience - one that familiarised us with the grim reality of sexual violence. But even after two years of exposure, how many of us are really able to respond to these disclosures with sufficient compassion and sensitivity?
AWARE's Sexual Assault Care Centre created these posters as a useful guide for anyone looking to better support sexual assault survivors. We also conduct a powerful and popular series of Sexual Assault First Responder Trainings. The last one for the year is this Saturday. [Update: This session has sold out! Stay tuned for new training dates in 2020.]
