I just had this vision. I had this vision of you tying plastic flag poles with orange flags. Like they do with fire hydrants. So they can find them in snowdrifts. They look like a sim.

"Left. Hi, my name's ass and I have a preschool teacher. Recently we started wearing pronoun pins and the kids get to pick a new pronoun pin every. We have something that picked like she her every single day. And we have something to change it up. So I'm a non binary preschool teacher. And my kids know I'm not binary. They know I'm not a girl or a boy. I use they them pronouns in the classroom. We work on it, not all the kids get it. That's okay. And I go by mixed gray in the classroom, not miss or mister. Manual brought me teaching the children about me being Pauly was crazy. But not only that, but they also know that I'm gender fluid. I'm gonna give you my explanation about what it means to be transgender as well. So when babies are born, the doctor looks at them and they make a guess about whether the baby is a boy or a girl. It's as young as three and four are actually aware of their gender identity, even if they don't have the language for it. Say that pre-K through third grade are not ready for such topics, is actually internalized homophobia and transphobia. Well, I don't know if I have to say anything. At least you can't fool yourself into thinking. That you're a children's innocence is not being ruined. By these woke people teaching your children. Preschool kids wearing pins with their preferred pronoun identity. Teachers proudly telling their children that they're non binary, hey. Kids, I'm not a man or a woman. And if you oppose it, that's internalized homophobia. Really? What does being gay have to do with denying that there are men and women? Nothing. It's not only evil it makes no sense. And yet people continue to send their school, their kids to school there. Hey, go to Dennis and Julie, watch my latest project, Dennis and Julie podcast. Just put that in your search engine..

The Collaps of Public School Education

"Let me ask you about their education at Tiffany because I've been covering gender education K through three and the end of excellence education in San Diego's Patrick Henry high school, 9 through 12. Education is collapsing in America as it collapses in Washington state. It is collapsing. And people in Washington state will remember that I was 11 years old when patty Murray was first selected. She ran as the mom in tennis shoes. Oh yes. She was a preschool teacher and she was on school board and she was going to fight for our children. So under her policies, our education has gotten worse. And we were a 44% average in public school system prior to the pandemic. You could imagine how those scores of considerably gone down. All through my boys are in the public school system. And here in Washington state, our kids were out of school for almost two full years. And not only that, we have to get back to teaching math and reading. We have to get back to competitive quality education.

"You go back in the room and you rub his back, you don't turn on a light. You don't change the background noise, and you don't talk to him. You rub his back. Now, if he cries hard and stands up in that crib and start shaking the rails and saying, get me out of here. You have to walk out of the room. And because clearly what you've done by walking in there and not getting him out of the crib is not soothing him, it's making him matter. So you walk out of the room. If you still crying after 15 minutes, you can go back in, same routine. You don't say anything, you don't turn a light on, and you don't cave. You don't say, okay, get up, and we'll eat. He's not hungry. He's not hungry. He just ate 45 minutes ago. So you know he's not hungry and you know he's not ill, and you know he's not frightened. So what is he? He's saying to you, get in here, mom or dad. I want to play. I don't want to be here. Basically, he's having a temper tantrum. Now, if you're two year old we're having a temper tantrum, because you wouldn't give malali pop, would you say, oh, I'm so sorry. Here's your lollipop. No, you would say, sorry, you're not getting your lollipop. So when your baby at 6 months of age, 45 minutes after he's gone down for a nap, is screaming at you to come in and play. You say, no, I'm not going to play. It's sleep time. And you may do this every 15 minutes for an hour and a half. And you go, that wasn't worth anything. My baby didn't sleep. It was worth a lot because here's what you taught your baby. When I put you in your bed, you were there for at least an hour hour and a half. Now, you don't have to sleep, but you will stay in there. You may need to do this two or three or four days. I guarantee you by the fourth day, he'll get it. He'll get it. Oh, she's putting me in here and she's not coming back. She's not taking me out of the crib. I get it. I might as well sleep. So that's why you start during the nap time so that you can keep your wits about you when you're going in there every 15 minutes. And you have the wherewithal and the stamina to not pick him up out of the bed. So let's get that rhythm down. By the way, an 8 month old baby should be taking two naps a day for at least an hour or two each time. You say, well, my baby doesn't need that much sleep in their 6 month old. They do need that much sleep, but they just don't want to sleep that much. If they're not sleeping too good and naps a day, it's okay to let them have one long nap a day. But we know that all babies that age need at least 12 to 14 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period. And particularly if they're up at night, they need even longer nap during the day. So you get that nap rhythm down. Now, if your baby goes to day care, or if your baby goes to preschool, and they can't be napping in their bed. That's okay. You talk to preschool teacher the day care person and say, at home, my baby usually goes to bed around 11 in the morning. Do you put the kids down here at 11 in the morning? And if she says, yes, we do, or no, we don't. I put them down at ten. Then rework your nap time schedule at home to follow the day care nap time schedule. So it's really important that every day your baby's sleep rhythm is the same. Now let's tackle the nighttime. We're done with naps, and you've been successful at naps, or at least your baby's getting used to the idea that when I'm in this place, I have to sleep. So during the day, you don't feed your baby any more frequently than four to 5 hours. You say, well, that's cruel. That's me. It really isn't because I guarantee you your baby will eat whatever he needs to eat in order to grow. If he's an otherwise healthy baby. And at 6 or 8 months, they're also eating food. So you can give them some food in there. And I strongly encourage you at the nighttime feed, you give them something that's pretty that's gonna stick to his stomach. Give him something like oatmeal or give him some bread and give him some protein and give him a really full meal. Don't just give him fruit and a couple of veggies. You really want to give him as good of a meal at nighttime as you can because it really will help him sleep through the night. So let's say you've gotten through the day and you're putting your baby down at about 8 or 8 30 at night and you do the same thing you do your pre bedtime 15 minute routine and you've got the lighting the same and the bed the same and the smells the same and you've read and you put your baby into bed and he looks up at you and he screams. What is he saying? Get back here. I don't want to be here. Rather, if you jump to him and go, okay, you really don't need to be here and take him out. What you're telling him is it's not okay for you to be in your crib alone. Every time you go in and pick up a crying child who you know is very tired and it needs to sleep. And you know, isn't hungry and you pick that baby up. You are giving him a very clear signal. It's not okay for you to be alone. You need me. And the longer you give that signal, the longer it will take him to feel safe in his crib. You want to give just the opposite signal. And that is, it's okay for you to be in your crib alone. I'm right here. I can hear you always. You are safe. This is your safe place. So if he jumps up and he cries, you go in and you rub them and you say it's time to go to sleep. And then you walk out. Again, if he cries ten or 15 minutes later, you go back in and you rub his back. You don't say anything. You don't talk to him. You don't cuddle him. You wait another 15 minutes. Wait a little bit longer. Another 20 minutes, and you go back in. If you've done this three or four times and a good hour and a half has gone by, it is okay if he's really hysterical to pick him up right at the bedside, give him a squeeze, give him a pat on the back and sue them and say, it's okay and put him right back in the bed. Don't walk him out of the room. Don't walk him around, put him right back into the bed. Because you want to let him know he's safe. The room is okay and you're always there. And you finally get him to sleep, and let's say he falls asleep in about 9 o'clock at night. And then he wakes up at one in the morning. Well, that's four hours, and you've just been sleep training, so it's okay to get up and feed him in his room, put him right back to bed. He wakes up another four hours, try to push him off to 5 hours if you can. If he wakes up at one and you fed him, try to make him wait till.

"Activities on our own terms, but I was struggling to understand this dramatic refusal to participate in something she otherwise seems to enjoy. She's pretty verbal, but not enough that she's been able to explain what's going on in class. Any suggestions or ideas before I just pull the plug sincerely tired of toddler gymnastics. Zach, do you want to give this first question ago? Yes. I've been waiting for this moment nervously. Yeah, okay. So first of all, I know people say this when giving advice. You're not alone, but listeners truly, you are not alone. I went through the same thing with my daughter when she wasn't quite for in soccer. So this is very, I think it's very common. And two and a half is very young. When we were doing this with soccer, we took my daughter, she expressed interest. We kind of got her buy in ahead of time. Yes, I want to do this. But then once we got there, she was literally the only one not participating. And I had a sinking feeling like, oh my gosh, she antisocial. What's going on? Why isn't she gleefully running after the instructor? Like, all the other kids. And this went on for a couple of weeks. I wasn't putting much pressure on her. Because again, our kids, your kid, my kid, they're very young. So if they're not participating at the time I was thinking, it's really not that big of a deal. One thing that helped was I went and spoke to one of the coaches and just said, 'cause there's like 20 kids running around and they might not even notice that your kid isn't participating. So I just asked for a little TLC extra TLC from one of the coaches. And they came and gave my daughter a little bit of one on one time, like less than two minutes, and that was enough for Noah to feel bonded and maybe a little bit more connected to the instructor. So that's one thing that you can try just ask for a little one on one because I'm 37 and I still get really nervous in front of crowds and especially when I'm doing something that I haven't done before. So that helps a lot. Find an ally. And then also, again, she's two and a half. Their attention spans are like not significant at all. So doing gymnastics at home is great. And if they don't get fundamental instruction, like at this age, I think it's fine. I don't know what your hopes and dreams are for them, but to me it really isn't that big of a deal. And I was wondering, is there like a free play option at the gym where you can just go with her and let her do her somersaults without the kind of pressure of, okay, you have to go and do this activity that everyone else is doing? Can you just go and let her jump in the sponge pit and maybe watch some other kids for a while without that? That expectation and then give her the option. Okay, now for next semester, whatever you call it, maybe we'll try to go back in the class. And maybe she just wants to mess around by yourself and I think that's fine. Zach is, I think, a 100% correct, you know. Not only are you not alone, this is a baby. You know? Two and a half year old doing anything is an accomplishment? Yes. That is not going poorly at school is great that your little one is waiting until gymnastics to be difficult is a triumph, whether you realize it or not. You know, it could be anything Zach was kind of alluding to this that by creating this structure around what was play before. This might not be fun for your child anymore. At this point, it used to be that I could just do these things and I can swing and I can tumble. And now I can only do it in this order and I can't do it when someone else is doing it. And that just might be a bit for them. They're still trying to understand all of this like school and learning are still very new concepts. This is completely developmentally appropriate and I think it's just going to take time. I hope that your hopes and dreams are not of gymnastics for your child or that you haven't decided already like, oh yeah, this is little Gabby Douglas right here. That you're giving your baby time to play with this. And it will get better, but it's not something to be taken too seriously just yet because it is toddler gymnastics. And isn't everything in two and a half child Jim. Yeah, your house is taller gymnastics. I really like the idea of open gym because I just really think that if your child's enjoying the activity, finding a way they can enjoy it and still have fun is such a good way to help them get that energy out. I do wonder if the problem you're seeing here versus preschool is because of your presence and I don't mean that in any bad way, but my kids act entirely differently when I attend a class with them versus when they go in and have to basically get someone else as the leader. So I don't know if this is one of those mommy and me classes. If so, you could make some choices. Like if your goal is that they participate in the class, then one of the things you can do is go get them and enforce some rules. We're going to wait. We're going to do some results. We're going to cheer on our Friends, right? If that's what you want, if you're okay with spending the time and she's running around in the teacher is fine with that, then that's fine. I think in preschool, your child's preschool teacher has probably poured in so much time about the routine. It just feels like that's what preschool teachers do. They teach this is the routine, the class is going to come do this. They gently guide people back in and honestly, she probably expects this kind of behavior from all of the children in her class that they will wander off and try something else and encouraging them to come back to the group. So I don't think just because you're seeing this in gymnastics, but your preschool teacher doesn't say this is happening, doesn't mean this doesn't happen. It doesn't mean it doesn't happen to other kids. I will say that one of the things I learned with homeschooling the kids is that 90% of the battle is consistency. It's like kids are looking for those boundaries and knowing where they're allowed to stray where they're not allowed to strike all of that. So I think really think about what do you want out of this class? Is this like my kids seem to love gymnastics? We need somewhere else to expend some energy. If that's the case, and the teacher doesn't mind, who cares if she's running around? It's a good half an hour, whatever of activity, and she comes home happy then great. If you are hope, though, was more of like, I want her to be in a class and learning to do these things. Not necessarily learning to do the gymnastics because again she's two and a half. But if what you're hoping is that she learns like, hey, we go to this class and you should participate, then I think what you have to do is be consistent. A lot of parents will say like my kid doesn't want to do this or is struggling to do these things, but then you see them like having fun in a lot of those cases, I think it's that you're giving a lot of leniency in that way and that you sort of have to reach this point where you're like, well, we go to this. And this is what they do in the class. And we're going to keep doing this. So I don't think it really honestly, whether you want to pull the plug on gymnastics or not, is up to you of what you want out of it. And I really hope I think we've all expressed your expectation at two and a half should not be that this is training for the Olympics. It should be, I found a really fun way for my kid to maybe make some new friends, play with some new people and be out getting some of that energy.

"Laughing in the face of motherhood solving your parenting dilemmas. One question at a time. Two days listener question asks. Do you have any tips for preschool. Drop off when kiddo gets shy nervous or refuses to go in our little one occasionally gave us a hard time at preschool. Drop-offs pre vid and with pre k. Starting a few weeks. I wanna have a whole toolbox ready of things to to help those. I drop offs run smoothly. This is an interesting question. And i picked it because it's just having this conversation have a sister-in-law who's struggling with this and i was saying to my husband. I don't think we ever had kids. Who struggled at drop off any kind of looked at me. Like i ten heads and said we definitely had a kid who struggled to drop off. You were completely traumatized by it. And you talked about it all the time and i thought oh i guess this is like not that lingering experience for me because i once. He reminded me i was like. Oh yeah i do. remember him. Clinging to me and screaming like a monkey and being peeled off of me. I would say the biggest most important piece of advice which is slightly in contrast to your question is. I don't know how much you really can prepare for this. I think it's a situation where like if it's a problem. The number one thing you have to do is work with your child's preschool teacher to figure it out and that that may involve a lot of like trying different things so i think the biggest thing is not playing into it yourself so you gotta let go of all of the like i'm a bad parent for dropping my kid off. I'm a bad parent because my kid is the only one who is your crying. The preschool teachers have never seen anything as terrible as my child at drop off in the way that they behave. None of those things are true. So like cross those off your mind and out of your equation. Because i guarantee you that the preschool teacher has seen a whole lot more crazy than your kid. And so then you make your preschool teacher a real partner in this and you really have to observe what's going on and react to it that's going to be the key so okay. The kids always having the worst time on monday. Then you might write down for a week like which days were hard in which days were easier. So if it's friday it's like okay. They're just tired at the end of the week. That makes drop off hard on fridays one day week of backdrop of not hard. Maybe monday is hard because it's after the weekend and they're having a hard time maybe they always have a hard drop off if they didn't sleep well the night before if they didn't have a good breakfast and so by really keeping a journal about how it's going for the first couple of weeks i think you can start to analyze where your possible fixes..

Yeah in preschool is back this week to. I spoke to a preschool teacher. Who said that. It was quite a change to rearrange the classroom and a re-imagined how the day would go for really little kids and but that it went well and just kind of teaching them how to how to do things differently and get in the habit herself was was the trick but she said overall it was fine for special education students. I also heard things went pretty well. I spoke to a father who said that his son who is seven years old in first grade had a good first day back and that other kids seem really happy to be there that he's really hopeful that the district is going to come through with Its obligation to serve son and other kids full day instead of just a half day. They have right now is that is what their. Iep's have if their education plan calls for full day of of services because right now they're only getting some services in person basically the academic stuff in the social stuff but their physical therapy occupational therapy speech.

I used to be a preschool teacher and taught kids a ges Agents about four to seven. And every day i would we have you know how you have circle time and the kids sit around and the teacher talks or whatever so i would just tell them a story and i would make up a story every day and i would include all the kids in the store and they would be characters in the story. That's fourteen kids so it was a work but it was great creative exercise for me to do every day and the kids loved it would sit. There will be a. Why is their classroom so quiet. Because they were absolutely into these stories that i would tell so. I left that job eventually. And then i ended up getting a job working for writing for a magazine. It was very boring corporate job. And i didn't want the creativity that i'd built up in the classroom to go away so every day after work. The job was across the street from the public library. So i would go to the library and sit for an hour. And i would right and it started out where i was trying to just revisit what i had done with the kids just using the same kind of storytelling style. I would use with the kids and the rule that i made for myself was. I have to be having fun. The whole point of this is to be having fun being creative. So i made up these wacky characters and ridiculous dialogue and there's animals that turn into people and there's people that turned into animals and there's all kinds of weird environments and i would take different people from my life and smash them together into one character and make up a character that way and i was just having a lot.

"You mentioned something else that the City Council is kicking around as well. And that's adding another district. Another council person, the 11 1 plan. Where would this be? And why Well, it's because it's the strong mayor passes you would need. He even wouldn't be normal voting member of the council so you would have an even number of council members, then In in in the 10 10 1 system, so, adding an extra member would allow them to have and I have an odd number. But the funny thing is, is that they decided to do that as a separate ballot measure. So it is possible that the strong mayor does not pass and the extra Council member does pass. And then we're gonna have a council of 12. People would just be chaos. Hilarious. Attention. You know, 66 boats, their possible and I want to mention one more thing is this Proposal includes something called Democracy dollar right in under the radar, which is where they tell you. They take tax dollars $25 vouchers. They take tax dollars from all of the citizens, and then they give this $25 voucher to some citizens that they could donate to their politician of choice. Yes, The idea is that there's too much money in politics and basically that the poor people don't have can't don't have the ability to contribute to the candidates of their choice, and therefore we should take tax dollars, and it's It's not. It is tax dollars coming out of your Austin Energy Bill right away, So you're going to pay your often energy bill and then Austin Energy is going to turn around and funnel that horrible idea. What a mess. What a disaster. Really mad money literally. We were up against the clock here. There's been a lot of debates about getting kids back in schools. You know, the CDC says it's safe.

"That guided us to one way of doing this, so everybody's doing improv, and that's not good, and it's led to some disparities of the kind that you just heard that you're 94 year old person should get vaccinated before. A 60 year old person. The level of risk is, you know is probably 100 fold higher of dying it Z, really The effect of age on risk is profound. The good news is that Asked. The vaccine becomes, the supply grows and our distribution systems grow. I will assume that the 90 ft four year old relative will be able to get vaccinated quite soon. You see, his half were now vaccinating our patients over 75. Once we've kind of gotten through at least some of them will lower that number to 65 my own belief. Is that in a well meaning effort to to to promote equity. We created something that was just too complex to work. And so I don't believe is that age is such a profound risk factor here. That we should have started with the oldest people above 75 than 65 to 75, then 55 to 65. Then I personally would have voted for a lottery. And I had an editorial in York times about this couple weeks ago to to do everybody else. Now you can make arguments for for certain underserved populations for certain jobs for certain preexisting conditions. They're all reasonable arguments, but I've been asking people for months. How was Walgreens? The clerk? It Walgreens gonna figure out that you were a grocery store clerk, or you are a preschool teacher, or that your pre existing condition should count in mind. Shouldn't I had thyroid cancer? When I was 20 to 40 years ago? I'm pretty sure I'm cured. Is that a pre existing condition? Do I need a note from my doctor? It's just these are all good ideas today in a conference room, but when you actually try to operationalize them They're really hard to make work, and I think it's partly what has hindered us. It's we've created so many complex systems and categories. Age is simple. It is a real, very, very large risk factor for for hospitalizations. And for deaths. It is doable. It's fair. I believe that we should have started with age and I think that would have cleaned up some of the messiness that we're all seeing. Now we're talking with Dr Bob walked her professor and chair in the Department of Medicine UCSF, and we're talking about California's challenges containing Coronavirus distributing the vaccine and you can join us at 8667336786. You can email us form and kqed dot or were we just on Twitter or Facebook at KQED Forum? And we're getting actually quite a few questions about the vaccine itself, Linda writes. Can someone spread or transmit Cove it after fully vaccinated? That is the billion dollar question and we don't know the answer to that. Yet. What we what we know about the vaccines are they are remarkably safe. You've probably heard about these allergic reactions. They happen in one in 100,000. People on nobody in the United States has died of one yet. Um, you've heard about sort of reactions after the vaccine otherwise, and yes, A fair number of people will feel a little crummy the next day with maybe a little fever, muscle aches. I had my vaccine and it felt like somebody slapped my arm for a few hours. The next day, it was really nothing. Um on, but there's no evidence of any long term significant significant side effects. They are remarkably effective in preventing cove. It symptomatic cases of covert and severe cases of covert, and the most remarkable statistic is in the two studies Visor Madonna, there were 40 patients. That got really sick, went to the hospital or died in the studies. And then when they broke the code, it turned out. All 40 patients have gotten placebo, not a single one had been a patient of gotten vaccinated. So that's the great news. The thing we don't know for sure is Do they completely prevent you from catching the virus it getting in the back of your nose or throat? You carrying it, and then you spreading it to someone else. There's there's no biologist that I've seen yet, or vaccine ologists who don't believe that it will markedly lower the probability of that. But the question is, does it completely taken away is that is there no chance that you can catch it and then give it to someone else? I am fully vaccinated. My wife is not which creates a marital strife. I have to say yes. Didn't when I woke up the other day, and I, she said had I sleep and I said, I slept the sleep of the vaccinated so that that was not more, but I cannot say for sure that I could not go out and catch it and infect her. And until I'm sure about that, even though I'm fully vaccinated I am wearing a mask and doing all the things that I've been doing all along, trying to be Super Careful now. What I will do that I wouldn't have done a few months ago is when I have the chance. I'll get a professional haircut. When I have a chance. I'll see the dentist and if I need to travel, I will wear swords. I might not have done that. But I think we need to find out for sure whether.

"Yesterday. No, it was. It was a week ago that we were visiting with the Chicago public school teacher who said I'm not going into that building. Even if the kids go into the building. I'm not going to go into that building. Well, yesterday was the day that they were supposed to go back into the building. I talked to her just before the show today and asked her. What happened? Her name is Kirsten Roberts. She's a pre K teacher. She's a preschool teacher at Brenton. Oh Math and science Academy. This is in Oh, shoot. I forgot the neighborhood Roscoe Village. I wrote it in the run down in the stamp their eloped, But that's okay. She's in one of the Chicago neighborhood. She's a Chicago public school teacher. And so I asked her what yesterday was like and what's gonna happen next after I was done with my day of teaching preschool remotely. Received in email communication from Chicago Public schools, saying they were about to shut down my account and access to my Google classroom. My email s so that I would No longer be able to perform my job remotely and that I could only get access back to my remote teaching platform. If I went into the building today. What did you do? I sent a note to my principal and forming Him that I will be staying home toe. Stay safe. I'm going to continue to perform whatever job duties I can Remotely, And then it's in a message to my parents, letting them know what was happening. We're students in your classroom than yesterday, or are they going to be in your classroom today? All of my students are remote, but they could have been in the classroom That is Regardless of how many students to return to the classroom. There will be in class learning, but none of your kids returned to the class, huh? Right out of three preschool classrooms there only to preschool students that returned And that has everything to do with the fact that parents are also concerned about safety. But none of the kids in your classroom returned. So it's not like one of my kids are Learning remotely. Who's going to teach your students today? Well, that's a really good question. Chicago public schools has an obligation to provide Licensed educators, substitute teachers. If the teacher is not there, But before the pandemic, we had such a terrible sub shortage. I mean, sometimes classes get combined sometimes. Another staff member who's not a licensed educator will be put in tow Watch, just watch and baby sit kids because there are not enough substitute teachers have no idea what's gonna happen now. I'm not the only person who was staying remote and attempting to continue to teach their students remotely, who's now been Denied that. Ability and, you know, really, It's like you're denying me the ability to My job the way that I need to do it. I need to be in front of my students. But you're denying my students their teacher. And I get that. The school board is mad at us for raising safety concerns that they'd rather not deal with. They need to deal with us as adults. We were doing okay. I could have continued to do that while we work this situation out. Other teachers and staff, though, are are in your building. What do you say about that? Or what did they say to you? People been forced to go into work, risking their health to keep their jobs. You sound young to me. Are you a healthy person? Do you have any underlying conditions? Healthy person Not come would but I am 53. I live with my elderly parents, and my mother has some pretty severe health conditions. Well, I think that's a mitigating factor. That to me does make a difference from people. Thousands of us in the Chicago public schools who have Those kinds of circumstances who live in multigenerational household have loved ones that we're concerned about. We're not being given a safe work environment by our employer. Part of my resolve is knowing that I'm not the only one and maybe a five minute position. To use my voice to speak out about this. Maybe it'll do some good, Nick. It's not too late to start treating each other. Like human beings are other teachers in your building, not going in. And what is your union telling you? I am not clear on what the status of everybody in my building is. Our union is saying, Let's stick together. I wonder what that means. It's possible that in fact, you will lose your job. You won't get paid. They're saying they're not gonna pay me and that they're beginning proceedings for me to be absent without leave. I would like to see them show one shred of evidence before an arbitrator or a judge, But I cannot perform my job. Cuties due school would argue that you're not doing that in class. But your point is, you are doing that. But just remotely. You will happily teach your kids but only over the computer. My school would never say that about me. My school knows I've shown up my school supports me. Um, I am so to the parents of the students I teach I'm not absent without leave. I'm here. I'm ready to teach. They are the ones who have stopped me. Let's not deny Children. Experienced dedicated educators in front of them while We're settling this problem..

But given the current state of the pandemic that makes some teachers nervous, like preschool teacher Kiersten Roberts, so I was Terrified honestly, to see the reopening of schools in the school system, like the Chicago public schools, which is Really comprised of students who have been the hardest hit who've been disproportionately impacted by this pandemic. But, you know, I talked to my colleagues and who were the other preschool teachers who are being called back into the building and we Also don't want to lose our jobs and what we decided to Geo Woz to show up at our school building. But to teach to continue to teach remotely outside this alternative plan is not without controversy. Chicago teachers could face disciplinary actions if they don't show up to teach in the classroom, which could lead to firings. And they can lose pay. Then there's the issue of teaching outside in.

Alderman Daniela spotters from the first ward. He's the one who organized the letter, and he talked to John. The spot to talk to John earlier today, organized I think was about 30 or more than 30 Alderman to get together and to urge that not necessarily that thing's not happen, but that we needed to have an improvement before kids were able to go back to classroom.

How critical is that to your decision? That is if they say I'm sorry, but we just can't physically get it done in time. Then, would you absolutely not go back this year? We've gotta We've gotta work as a city to figure out what we're going to Diogo. Does that mean we return in the spring and go through the summer to make up for last time? I don't know. I think there are questions we can ask their solutions we can come to together. But I do know it's long as we have this level of community spread. Um I don't feel safe. I know the majority of the parents don't feel safe. Um And that's the reality. Nobody has chosen that reality. Nobody would like to be in a classroom with preschoolers, Woman and me and my colleagues. We can't wait. Until we've beaten this thing, and we can get back to doing what we love to do, which is being with Children teaching Children learning from Children. How long have you had been a pre K teacher? Off. This is my 14th year. Right, Kirsten. Let's do this. Today is Monday. Maybe leave. Is it Friday Or maybe Monday of next week? You know the scene where you're teaching in the courtyard. While kids are in the building on the other side of the wall is Sir. Real to me, And yet I could see a scene like that playing out. I can't. I don't know what's going to change in the next seven days. Let's let's try Connect later this week, Okay? Let's really hope our city leaders make the.

"preschool teacher" Discussed on WGN Radio

"Slash speed jokes we've been talking about Tesla's Steve Alexander was reporting on how well the company is doing, Amanda Cuttery. Well, Couple of our listeners have found that I think the same statistics you found you have those handy On what percentage of the electricity that we consume comes from fossil fuels versus clean or renewable energy. Yep. Fossil Fuels according to the Energy Information Administration is 62.6% that includes natural gas and cold and petroleum. 63% of the electricity say you're putting into your Tesla. It comes from fossil fuels. You're still burning gas or coal and putting it into the air. Nuclear is 19.6, the renewable wind hydro power solar is 17.6. So rounded up, say 63 2018 Not bad. Almost 40% 38% is renewable right is nuclear or wind or hydro electric. 63% is coming from fossil fuels. Okay, so I don't know what you're all going to do when you decide to buy a car or not. Well, they should look on comments website because there is a big big section about electric vehicle elect electric vehicles and where to charge him and how much it costs and all that. It's pretty interesting. Oh, no kidding. Yeah, that's good to know anything jump out at you when you look well within just the main area of the Chicago Let's say from North Avenue on the north to Cermak on the south and Ashland on the west. There are well over 100 public charging stations. And you pay for that? Well, according to well, you know, testing has got this perk. If you buy a test like that, I don't know if they still have this or not, but they used to give you a pre charging for a period of time. But according to the Google machine here, it says that to charge a Tesla car Costs roughly 15 bucks, and it could take anywhere from eight to 10 hours somewhere 8 to 12 hours cost me more than 15 bucks to fill up my car, though. Sure. Hey, John Williams By next week, you may be a test list sponsor. They may give one to you. It would be advertising money well spent. Well, if they do that, you're going to hear nothing but good stuff about Tesla's from this talk show host. Uh, Somebody said Tesla has a feature seven away. Called dog mode. I don't know if I believe this. I'm just reading text on the radio like a responsible journalist. Tesla's has a feature called Dog Mode that allows you to heat or cool the vehicle while you're shopping, so your pet can stay comfortable inside. You can't do that with a gas car unless you leave the engine running. There is. Yeah, there is a dog mode about that even has puts a message on the car's touched Tareen to tell passers by that the dogs are okay. And the owner will be back soon. Just going to say someone still gonna break your side window, But maybe not. John. We are looking at electric cars. We put solar panels on our house last year. That's a going thing. Solar panels are for real. I did commercials for a solar panel company. And I know a little bit about those and the efficiency and technology are there now. And one other note, John. We priced a base $35,000 Tesla. By the time we added other pretty basic features we worried about 49,000. So it's a It's an electric car with an A M radio. And if you want if you want all the bells, or even some of the whistles, you gotta you gotta move up. I guess it's that way with all of them. Sure. Christian Roberts joins us now. Kristen is a CPS teachers. I understand it. Hi, Kristen. You're on WGN. Hello. I good afternoon, you teacher Brent Tano Elementary School. Is that right? I do. I am a very lucky to be a preschool teacher at brand Tano Elementary. So what does that mean? What are the ages of the kid's preschool is that that's pre kindergarten. Yeah. So I have students everywhere from two years old toe five years old in my classroom. How many kids in your classroom last you were in your classroom. Um, last year, our classroom capacity is 40. So that morning Group of 20 and an afternoon group of 20 this year our capacity is 15 in the morning and 15 in the afternoon. When you are teaching in the classroom like that. Do you have a teacher's aide or another adult in there helping you manage? 20 at the time. Yeah, I am privileged to teach in a classroom. It's a special kind of program called a blended, plump program. And so I get to teach alongside. Special education teacher and we have Children who are part of the General education program. And we have kids who are receiving special education as well. We're all together all one big, happy classroom and you said they started the age of two and they go up to what age in your classroom. 5 to 25. What are you doing with a two year old? Oh, we're doing all kinds of things typically, you know, Before this pandemic we were using a lot of Plato and clay and paint at Markers and Kranz and we were dancing and singing and pretending and using sand and water exploring or golden environment and learning through play every single minute of the day. Um, since the pandemic and we've got our amount, we're still doing a lot of those things. But we're doing it through preschool on the computer, but we still sing and we still explore Plato and experiments and we pretend and build forts together. Um, yeah. That's what we do. I guess it takes a serious buy in from the parents. In that case, if it's a 2 to 5 year old on the other side of the computer screen, and I'm curious about what you're feeling is about going back into the classroom now. It sure sounds like you're teaching is pretty tactful. Let's pick it up here in a minute. This is W. GM..

A Simple Equation to Help Kids Love Math

"We're going to the equivalent of flipping to the back of the book to look right at the answers because we know back by listening to this math, you had to overcome some anxieties I bet of your. Yes. So let's get right to our takeaways and number one. Don't let your math anxiety hold your kids back. Nothing's -iety. As you mentioned is a real phenomenon all over the world and it's pretty clearly related to how we teach math in school things like timed practice and memorization and high stakes testing and oh my gosh, I'm getting. Hot Flashes and sweaty palms, just thinking about tests. Can here's the really upsetting thing that math anxiety it's not equal opportunity. That's right. It's tied to stereotypes race, and especially gender research shows that mothers and Preschool teachers who are overwhelmingly women they can pass that feeling onto their kids especially to their girls but there is some good news children are not born with math anxiety. All right. It's passed onto them. So I think that's why we have to check out selves in when we're talking about math this. was kind of a surprise for me because I thought that you know if my kid had a problem with math I could bond with him by saying, Hey, you know it was tough for me too but actually rose Marie says saying, I. Don't like Math I can't do math that will get conveyed to your children and the solution. Instead we need to reframe math yet rosemary says think about the fun activities that can back up and reinforce what they're learning. In school math is very much an integral part of your life do you love music i? Do I love to sing. All right. If you love music, then you love math do like to cook and Bake I love to cook and be okay. Then you love math because she can't do music and you can't cook and bake without math so I can't cook or bake really and I definitely cannot sing but I love baseball for example, and my boys. And I we talk about baseball statistics all the time. So what's important Rosemary says is recognizing math as part of many things that we like doing together exactly and so to see more about how adults can we've math into our everyday moments of life even with really little kids you and I and our producer Laurent Mickey visited Really Special Preschool new first reported this episode. This is back in two thousand and nineteen when we could freely move throughout the world. Watch US light today. This is the center for Early Childhood Education. It's our research preschool at Eastern Connecticut State University. The lobby has this giant, super, realistic oaktree yet which I climbed inside. Very cool. We should also say about a third of the kids at this school speak Spanish at home. That's right and at the preschool, we sat down with one of the lead researchers. Suda. Swami not done and she helped us understand a lot more about how to grow children who love math the minute we say math with think of the big picture you know Bagel theorems beore geometry concepts instead swimming not says thinks small she's a professor in Early Childhood Education at Eastern Connecticut State and her special focus is on early math learning and Sudha And her colleagues have done lots of research to see what kinds of childhood experiences lead to better performance in math later on and one of their answers makes up our second takeaway take number to talk about math take this really ordinary moment you asked them to put their books away and and say, doesn't fit the shelf. So why disadvantage fit? Maybe it's the book is too tall too big Suda says you're actually talking about math process it's problem solving. Yeah, and we heard lots of this by the way math talk at the preschool. As the duck fit in there too. He did fit when he was standing up. So you decided to lay down does he fit now? That's Amy Lopez the lead teacher for the toddler. It's a sunny room with a cozy reading corner. There's a play kitchen and blocks, and you're the center of the room. There's this table and amy sitting with the children they're building together with magnetized calls, which are these colorful plastic blocks with different shapes that stick together and the little plastic farm animals, and one of the kids is kind of putting together a house. You're using triangles and squares unique. Naming the shapes in both English and in Spanish. When we played this tape for Rosemary she said what I heard. There is the teacher using descriptive math language and that is so key for children to understand math concepts. You can't understand the concepts without the language. Yeah, and aim is not building the box for the kids cheese actually making observations kind of narrating their thoughts in real time the more blocks you on the longer dad's Cohen I notice that when you added more your line got longer and longer when she said Moore blocks to make it longer. Longer is a complex word for children and they need to hear that language and they need to hear that language in a very concrete way. She wasn't even afraid to use really technical words like when this little boy was trying to make a little corral standup. Now you can put them all around the perimeter all around the edge Caribbean or.

Elizabeth Wetmore: Valentine

"Today. I'm very pleased and excited. My favorite thing on bookworm is when I'm talking to a first novelist. And it someone whose work I have not previously known my guest on the show today is a booth wet more Beth wet more. Her book is called Valentine. It's published by Harper and it's novel. Beth. Wet more is fifty three years old and this is her first. Book, she's published many short stories in many of the best literary journals, the Kenyon, Review Colorado Review but this is her first time in hardcover. Tell me Beth what feel nights is finally see the book in hardcover. Well. It's all been a little unreal honestly. I worked on the book for a long time and I was ready to have the editor sort of wrestle out of my hands. Honestly I think if if she hadn't wrestled it out of my hands, I'd probably still be tinkering with it to tell you the truth and even now I occasionally spot a sentence or a paragraph that I think, Oh, I'd like to have a do over on that. But on the whole, it's been wonderful and surprising to me I think I. Expected The book to come out very quietly and and so it's been. Marvelous to see how many people have reacted to it in such a positive way and how meaningful it's been to some people. Yes the book has made its debut as number two when it came out on the New York Times bestseller list and it's set where Beth was born in West Texas in Odessa. Now, if you're me, you think Odessa that's near where my family come from in Russia this is Odessa in. West Texas how does it get its name? Well it depends on who you ask You know the they're part of Texas was settled pretty late in the early eighteen eighty s and depending on on what piece of local you believe it was it was named Odessa in part because of the sort of grasslands that that people said resembled the Odessa in Ukraine. And and and that's really been the most sort of certain story I've heard. No was Texas. is known for its. Economy. I'm sure most of my listeners will know this but what is an oil patch? Well. Odessa is in the Permian Basin which is about eighty, six, thousand square miles inside. So and and of course, West Texas and. is is even more vast right than the Permian basin and it's an oil and natural gas rich region of the country I read recently actually that actually until the until the pandemic, it was on pace to outpace Saudi Arabia for the biggest production in world in the next five years That's slow down and been derailed a little bit by the pandemic of course but it's so an oil patches you know a a part of the world where that is the single economy oil and natural gas. It's not a particularly pretty place in the world at least not by most people's standards I think it's beautiful. There's no other way to make a living out there other than working oil and natural gas and Odessa where I grew up on differs slightly from it sort of sister city, of Midland, which is about twenty three miles away in the sense that Odessa's a very working class town most of the people who live and work in Odessa do the. Blue collar work of the oil patch. So they work is the roughnecks and pipe lawler's and fitters and water haulers and That's still even today a pretty male dominated industry women in that part of the world tend to work in support roles as bartenders and waitresses preschool teachers, teachers, that sort of thing So that's where I grew up.

Mastering Money With the Budgetnista

"So. Tiffany. Let's start with your personal story. So we're currently in third recession of the century. But I'm guessing that you're doing just fine partially at least because of the lessons you learned during the last recession to tell us a little bit about your history, what the last recession was like for you and what has happened since then. Now. Certainly The last question caught me off guard i. Was Not prepared. I because quite honestly I was a schoolteacher and you know I was pretty confident. I'm like, I don't know that schoolteachers lose their jobs because you know we are essential workers, and now yet here we are back again. But Yeah I was a schoolteacher and I didn't move my job actually in two, thousand, eight when so many of my friends did but I let I lost it at the tail end of two, thousand nine. So it really took me by surprise but. Up until like I would say, twenty, five, twenty, six, I was what I called financially. Perfect. I grew up in a household. Money was talked about wasn't scared of talking about finances. Might author was a CFO OF A small nonprofit? He also had his NBA in economics, his his a in finance. My mom was a nurse and we literally used to have money meeting so. I. Didn't grow up with the angst that most people did. So by the time, I was twenty five even though. I was teaching preschool wasn't making much. I think I was making like forty thousand dollars a year By the time I was twenty, five ahead. Forty thousand saved bought a Condo I. I had an ADL to I. Think Credit Score at didn't have any credit card debt. I paid off like my parents helped with my undergrad degree plus. I commuted. So what I did haven't stood alone. I was able to pay that off a few years after school. So financially perfect like okay. So I honestly couldn't relate although I was helping my friends with their budgets savings and things like that. I couldn't relate to the mistakes because I had not yet need them but I was going to then. When I was twenty six, I went on to get my masters in education and I was like, okay. So you now you went from no debt to a mortgage, not so bad. I had a a you know student loans because my master's not so bad. But by twenty six, I said, okay. Now, I'm ready to learn to invest and instead of asking my father who has literally two degrees in years of experience I'm GonNa ask a friend of mine. and. So I asked a friend of mine who appeared to be independently wealthy because he had like a really nice car. and. Like a like a fancy apartment he's well I think Spurs. You have to learn to invest with other people's money at. My money. So what he postulated as is that. Do, you have credit card said, yes. But I paid off in full every month because as instructed by my father, he was like well, did you know you could pull money off a credit card? I, did not know that. So he said not only can you pull off one? You could pull it off to I was like double the mistake. Let's do it. So I pulled off twenty thousand dollars off of my credit cards and I went to invest with him what's to say? That didn't happen I. ENDED UP Thirty, five thousand dollars in credit card debt when I didn't have credit card debt prior and I just remember thinking a first year. I said didn't want to take responsibility for the mistake that I made I did not tell my dad or my mom. But I pay just a minimum because I said, you know what? He's going to come back or he's GonNa. Take care of this because it's not my fault of Ansel from age twenty seven I didn't do anything. Well, twenty, seven night out the money twenty eight, just pay the maximum finally twenty nine, I said all right I'm GONNA pay off this debt just going to buckle down I live pretty frequently anyway, and then twenty nine is when I lost my job. So. Now, I've got a mortgage student loan credit card debt and I was like, okay, I don't know what to do. I've never been in the situation. So. Fallon to this light dark hole of like spiral like because I'm twenty nine going on thirty I've lost everything as far as I can tales financially. So I ended up moving back home with my parents without telling them why they knew it was the recession obviously, and they also knew I lost my job, but they didn't know. ABOUT CREDIT CARD DEBT Live with them for year than I. Am I live with my sister on her couch for year, try to figure out my life because back. Then now we're getting the six hundred dollars a week on our stimulus stimulus check. But what was happening then as they just extended unemployment typically, you can get unemployment for up to a year. They extended to two years. So I said, okay, you have two years to. To figure out what are you going to do with your life I was afraid to go back to work for someone because I thought it, you can lose a job as a preschool teacher essential. Then that's not safe. What could be safe? So I tried a bunch of different things I tried on party promoting party planning I volunteered everywhere I can think of, but while doing so I was helping my friends. But save get out of debt all these things in one day. My friend said, you should turn that into a business and I'm like you. Now I had gone to school my bachelor's degrees in business, but I hadn't used it. And so I, tried to charge people one on one. Only to find the people that you're actually helping with your budget. The reason why they hired us because they don't have any money. So that was a bad business. So I, switched my business model to one too few and I worked on getting contracts and I got my first contract with the United, way? And I rose excited 'cause they were going to pay me I think like. Three, or four, hundred dollars a class and I had a six week course that I'd written. For them, and so I did, and that was like my first. Okay. Maybe I can really make a run at this My little sister gave me the nickname, the budget. So that became because she said like, I'm not like the fashion. Easter. Who is really fashionable, but I am very cheap so

Businesses Complain Generous Jobless Benefits Make It Hard To Find Workers

"Tens of millions of people are out of work because of the corona virus but if they apply for unemployment they get six hundred dollars a week which is more than some were making in their previous jobs. That was a deliberate effort. By Congress to cushion the economic fallout from the pandemic but now those benefits are getting a second. Look here's NPR chief. Economics correspondent Scott horsely preschool teacher. Lady Morris has been out of work for more than two months but the Portland Oregon Childcare Center. Where she worked is thinking about reopening. Moore's is dreading it as much as she loves the infants and toddlers. She used to care for. They always have naughty faces. It's just one cold effort and other. That's just the name of the game in daycare and it feels just like an epicenter for spreading disease and it feels really scary to go back to that preschool. Teachers don't make a lot of money. Thanks the extra six hundred dollars a weekend. Unemployment benefits the federal government offering during the pandemic. Moore's is actually making more now than she did on the job. She hate to give that up if she and her fellow preschool. Teachers are called back to work. It's terrible to say but we're all doing better now. It's hard to think about going back to work in this pandemic and getting paid less than we are right now. Where we're safe at home and minute quaranteed. Atoms of Gravel Switch Kentucky is in no hurry to go back to work either. The cracker barrel restaurant where he worked has just started offering limited indoor dining again after weeks of takeout. Only service. Adams's worried though. Too many people are still getting sick. I don't feel like it's over yet. I would wait to see as things we open. If the case load increases again for now Adams has decided to stay home mostly out of concern for the four elderly relatives. He lives with but the extra six hundred dollars a week and unemployment. He's receiving did factor into his decision. I would say it has to some extent it still really needs to be more about my family members but it's been very generous having the cares act. Some business owners complained that generous unemployment benefits are making it harder for them to find workers. Rachel Davis runs a consignment shop in Warren's bird Missouri since reopening this month she's been buying hand sanitizer by the gallant disinfectant. Is My new fragrance. She jokes she's living traffic in the store to three customers at a time and everyone who comes in must wear a mask customers have thanked us for that and my sales are actually up since we reopened. Davis also gave her part time employees. A modest raise but the ten to eleven dollars an hour. They make is far less than they work. Electing on unemployment one of her four workers has not come back. I know I shouldn't take it personally. That she's doing what she feels is in her best interest but as an employer actually. Kinda hurt economist at the University of Chicago estimate. More than two-thirds of the workers unemployment are making more in jobless benefits than they did at work in some two to three times as much. That's a stark reminder of just how low the pay is in many hard hit industries when millions of low wage workers were suddenly forced to stop working to protect public health economist. Joseph Vavra says there were good reasons for the federal government to step in with some relief. Getting people money today so that you can buy groceries and NOCCO hungry getting people money so they can pay their rent. The basic necessities of life kind of makes sense still bobber and his colleague. Peter Gong say the flat six hundred dollars a week. Benefit does create questions of fairness especially when other low income workers are still on the job doing essential. Work if you're a janitor and you work at a hospital you're facing increased risk at your job and likely have not received a pay raise but if you're janitor and you worked at a school that's shut down and you actually get fifty percent raise from claiming unemployment benefits likewise retail workers on furlough or collecting forty two percent more on average from unemployment than the grocery workers who are still busy stocking shelves. The six hundred dollar week benefits are set to expire at the end of July and Congress has to decide whether to extend them good on. Bava argue with double digit unemployment. Maintaining some kind of increased benefits will be vital but they suggest those benefits could be more closely to workers old paychecks so as not to discourage a return to work so new chartier and her husband opted not to go back to their old jobs with a Wisconsin. Furniture store customers. There aren't required to wear masks then short worries about infecting her mother-in-law. We're lucky and we can decide to stay home. And I'm grateful for that and I know so. Many people can't make that decision and I. It's really hard but we don't have feel like it's safe to go out short to your nose turning down. Her old job may cost her unemployment benefits and she started look for new jobs. Maybe one she can do from home or while. Otherwise avoiding risk her number one question for would be employers. What are you doing to protect your workers?

Stop Worrying About Your Preschooler's Education (with Teacher Tom)

"Had a wonderful post. That thousands of people shared it's called. There are plenty of things to worry about right now. You're preschoolers education isn't one of them. And you shared this wonderful insight about your work actually and what you and other preschool teachers do. Which is you are researchers of children. Well that's what you do to right. That's the right to me. That's the piece I think people don't understand about what we do is that we're not there to instruct the children. Were not there to tell them what to do. What are we what were there is is to study them and understand them really to kind of figure out who this human being is. Were with it when you do that. You find out just how incredibly competent they are. I've already had parent say to be things like my kids. Five and they can fry eggs and of course they can. They can do all kinds of things if the sages just we haven't given them the opportunity and now they're getting the chance the other way I think about it is that it's about listening so listening. Not just with ears but with your whole soul your whole be because first of all you demonstrate the judge connected to them that you're there for them and you give them security but the other piece is. That's the only way you're really really really gonNA learn about them. Rather than just fall back on your preconceived notions absolutely and my mentor. Magda Gerber and her mentor. Pediatrician Emmy pickler. They talked a lot about sensitive observation. And it's a core aspect of the approach that I teach and actually in the classes that we do which are parent child. Classes start from three months old babies than we actually recommend doing these things before the baby's three months but that's as young as they be taken out into a class sensitive observation teaches us everything we need to know about our child and there needs to be affirming how to support them in their learning. All these wonderful things. So I loved that you were recommending for parents. If this hasn't been your approach now is the perfect time. Yeah to focus in on that and I love how you said. Let go of this thing where we have to say good job and try to shape what they're doing and kind of mold it the way we think it should go by encouraging them to do this over that or whatever this misperception that kids will do anything without is constantly either scolding number cajoling them or encouraging them. I mean you just hear that mantra all the time right you hear that good job thing going on over and over again it some people can't I mean honestly they're trying they can't stop it's become so ingrained for most of us. Say That all of this what we're talking about right now as far as observing and being researchers and this works with adult relationships as well because listening. I mean that's what Mr Rogers always talked about. There's almost no way to distinguish between listening in love. And when you're listening to people you learn so much about them. That's one of the things that I'm having a really hard time. You know I come from you. Know being fifty eight years old and and having grown up in the cultural men on used to being the one doing all the talking like I'm doing right now advance planning everything and I've really learned a great deal of power and just sitting back and listening to people Howard in the most positive way I remember when my children each of them got to the age where they weren't talking to their toys than having this conversations in front of me anymore. I couldn't observe them in that kind of play when a little more private or they didn't say it out loud so much and they didn't put it out there and and I remember just how much I missed that. What I love about working with young children is that they put everything out there. They show you what kind of therapy they're do with themselves. Why I became a teacher by daughter. Well you know I was the stay at home parent with my girl. And when she got to be five or six it started going to kindergarten. I I didn't know what to do with my time and so I decided to become a teacher so I can hang out with those kids. I love that I love your story. And you've of course been able to see how capable and competent children are and how they problem solve how they are able to develop their own motor skills without really any assistance at all and their creativity. I think tell the story a lot I say you know. What would you think any parent anybody out there? You Watch somebody hovering over their two month old baby. You know drilling Amman. Bowel sounds you would think they were crazy right. Kids learn how to talk. We would think they were crazy. If they had the five month old out there and they were trying to teach them how to walk in any doctor who recommended we call him a quack and I'm convinced the only reason that we believe. We need schools to teach children how to read is because we've been using schools that teach them how to read for a long time. There's incredible amount of evidence out there. That reading is a really natural human thing to do so the the older the children get the much more competent than we tend to think and we actually had really infantilized. Young children even infants. We've infantilized of yeah. We've underestimated them. That's the only way to know really what they're doing is to research to me that research of such a key part because everything children are doing on you and when they are choosing their own activity. I should say so. That was what kind of the fundamental definition of play for. Me Is a self selected activity and when children have chosen. There's always behind everything they do. There's a question they have a question. They're trying to get answered. We might not know what the question is. They might not even know what the question is but they are engaged in a scientific pursuit trying to get some kind of answer to something it might just be. Can I do

"Don't know if you remember this whole beef between Dragon. And Victoria's secret when Victoria secret's CMO said. There is no room for transgender model along those lines because transgender. They're trying to sell a fantasy first of all honey. You haven't been online dating kind of you would know that. Trans is and has always been a fantasy. This woman was not fighting for anything of inclusion and I was so proud to have her here. Please welcome someone who has changed the lingerie game. Forever Nikita Dragon. Who are you MAKINA legal real name? Okay first and foremost let me start off by saying you have the clapback of the year. That's why you're here. Yeah but when I dug deeper into your story. It's actually very interesting. So before we get to the clapback of them century. I want to start off with you. You are from Mexican in Viet Bac Mexican via background which to me seems to the most traditional backgrounds ever solid in their ways. Let me to say so. How did you live in? Come out as a trans person to two of the craziest backgrounds. I was very fortunate. I came in a very Big Entitlement family and I think ultimately my parents just wanted to see me really happy and for a while I was really content. Just being a boy I was a gateway for eighteen years of my life. Unfortunately I'm like oh no one those those I was I was really content. I came up pretty early on and I was just okay for a really long time and I had everything set up for me I had. I was living in Virginia at the time. That's where I grew up in a military family as well also not only multicultural but my parents are both from military backgrounds of both the military still to this day And it was really weird. It was really really weird. There was no gay person in my family. You know how to to talk about an uncle. Who are Ya maybe did marry a girl and maybe have some kids that you know. We don't know on the love but in my family absolutely no percent. Maho bloodline in the Dragon. Blood Line of being queer anything and I was openly gay and I was cool with that but then I just felt this weird moment. I wanted something even more. You know that point when you're just like I'm okay S. Know for sure because there was a point. Obviously I'm a black gay man from South Louisiana so coming out as gay was tough and I didn't know what gay meant so I always thought alike. Boys I must WANNA be girl. At what age did you connect that? This isn't just about being gay. This is something deeper like five. Stacks no I swear on every way everything how because how early what are you in preschool. All your five five kindergarten spiders old. I remember experience like yesterday. I fully believed when I was born that I was a woman. Swear to swan everything I just. Didn't you know obviously when you're young? You're not thinking anything. Truly just thought it was woman my parents let me play with barbies. My parents let me be really feminine. you know. Every time we used to play little video games. Brothers are cry unless I was a girl character. I truly thought I was a woman and it wasn't until I was in preschool. I would dress up with the other girls and I would play dress up. I promise dresses Preschool teacher was really cool shelter her. Yes yes login preschool on a military base you're gonna May Melanie Hainkel But it's crazy because one of the days another teacher team in from a different class and she saw me playing dress up and she was like. What are you doing like yelling at me freaking out on the teacher? This is disgusting. You're you're letting him do this. We need to call his parents. Like going really. It was really traumatic for sure. I think it was just such a crazy moment. I mean your whole world up to that point is just like finding games. You remember that I remember that. So that was the absolute first moment when I was there something different about me and I need to hide it. Who was the first person you told? Was that conversation like that. You are trans because for me. Sam Telling someone that I was gay was a liberating so for you telling someone who you truly were must have been terrifying but liberating who was the first person to trust it. I I had a really weird moment because for me the first time I ever even said it allowed was online up until that point. I was in biggest denial phase. I was like no. I'm just a super hyper feminine gay man and I was like okay with that but when I moved out here too late three years ago and started to Mike Transference and starting to the first person I've ever met with Trans but it was here And just really getting involved in that world. I just cut being so I just didn't want to accept that. Denial Phase I came out to my two best friends in. You came out to one point. Eight million people. Yes what. How does what started Nicole Journey? I turn on the camera and I was looking at the camera. I said I am transgender and I just thought well if I put out online I'm GONNA have to face. It was the first time it ever even spoken out loud. Never even said it in the mirror never even like thought of it. I just was like if I just put it out online. I'm just GONNA have to deal with it and then all of a sudden Viral and I have my aunts uncles calling me my parents or calling me the next. Stay with your mother found out he am from Youtube. Was that by design or did you just feel like if you were honest with a billion people that it would be easier that way than doing one on one. I think I did think it would be easier. I I was just so scared about what everyone would think. I'm that type of person round like I just have to jump into it and that's what I did. I literally just took the believes imbalanced jumped the rage and I mean I never thought it would become viral. I never thought people would yet all of a sudden it just blew up overnight and I was like. Oh my God now. Everyone knows about crazy movie moment for me. It's so funny because I've lived here for eight years in it takes bitches lifetimes to become snatched in you snatched it up in three mother Mir's hot. Did that transition happen. Like what was the process much money? 'cause you look expensive expensive all the time a walking investment for shore for me. I just am very goal oriented. I'm like if I see something that I want. If there's something that I wanNa do do it and I was just super determined. I mean a lot of people really were on me for transitioning as fast as they did. It took me about a year to fully transition. I just hit the ground running. I started taking hormones. And then I was like booking my appointment doing this. I've never had a sugar daddy. I've never had someone hate for anything of Mine My parents. I don't come from money background. I did everything on my own. I was going to college at the same time so it was a broke college kids or as paying my way through school on top of all that and I was also doing youtube and everything and I was living in a two bedroom apartment with four roommates and I just was so determined did didn't matter how I did it. Or how hostile? But I really wanted to do it. Differently. I came here meeting the Most Beautiful Trans Women and it release added me that so many trends girls were so beautiful wearing Lubaton out with you know all sorts of guys and being treated. Scotus says they would have to resort to sex work in order to get the money to pay for procedures and although I do not judge anyone I wasn't for it wasn't for me and I I never wanted a man or anyone to say. Oh I paid for that. Were paid for her. So I do some nasty Bahrain with. I'll do some nasty for fear town.

How To Talk To Children About Sex

"In this episode the birds and the bees for a new decade. And we should say we're going to deal here with the younger guys say for to the doorstep of puberty because once the pubic hair and the body odor start to kick in. You're GonNa need a whole nother light ship it heading your way. Thank you for that Mental Image Corey So without further ado are I take away of the day take away number one up. Aquinas is not who yeah and a Volva is not a front. We're just GONNA go out on a limb here and say that most of you listening like us might struggle a bit finding and using the accurate words for our private parts. Because it's not what you got when you were a kid inequality. I grew up in the deep South House and my mom would definitely consider as a feminist but she was also a southerner and she used to tell me things like that's dirty or that's your PCP and and so when I had my own daughters and they started asking me questions about their bodies. I thought it'd be a good idea to make up a word. So here's my daughter. Lv She's three three. What do we call the thing that you have in your underwear? What part of your body is that? What's his Nudie Do Boys snooty. No fee has Palma Madera series. I love you taught her the proper term for penis. You're halfway there halfway there that's true. And here's the present. Here's the thing. We don't want anyone to feel badly. I I don't want you to feel badly because the fact is you're not alone so Bonnie rough is the author of the book beyond birds and bees. One thing I never thought I would do is write a book about Sex let alone kids insects but that changed for Bonnie when she moved with her two young daughters from Minneapolis to a place where things pretty differently Amsterdam in the Netherlands so she says it was pretty shocking at first for example at her daughter's Dutch preschool. Teachers were using accurate terms for body body parts and body functions. The children were being helped with their toilet eating in a little bathroom were. They were parties in a row and Children of different genders were really just kind of Able to see and experience the presence of one another's bodies and their body differences as something that is a normal part of everyday the daily life. Wow what a concept and a related idea that struck her about life in Amsterdam was the total nigger kids. Teachers used when they talked about bodies. Instead of a diaper. APOR being Yucky or dirty or stinky it might just be full or empty or wet or dry so giving those body body functions at kind of normalcy. It's so much bigger than just sex. Bonnie saw how all of this openness about bodies lead to happier more or confident kids especially girls yeah and partly as a result. The Netherlands has lower teen pregnancy and abortion rates fewer. She is more gender equal society. The the more we know about our bodies the healthy and happier we are so Dr Core Brunner says the data in the US backs Bonnie refs point up more and better and more pensive. Sex Sex Ed leads to better outcomes kits. Dr Brunner is a pediatrician. And she actually wrote the American Academy of Pediatrics Sex ED guidelines in my poor kids they hung condoms on Christmas trees as ornaments. I mean they have been exposed to all of this for a long time happy holidays. He's with little children. Dr Brin suggests they learn the correct names for penis and Vulva just like you would any other part of the body. You just say it in a way. That's the way you would say. Brush your teeth as opposed to saying that you're female parts or that's down there. You don't say that or Schutte you don't say that and luckily luckily for me and for you if you haven't done this yet it's never too late to start using the right words. My older daughter Lewis eight a promise. She knows the word I get it but I still don't know if I can say the word penis in front of my kit. That is from a series of educational cartoon videos called Amazed Junior here in their intended especially for parents like us who want help talking to our kids about these issues. Yes in this one. A counselor is trying to reassure parents. You're clearly feeling a little awkward. Embarrassment is one of those catchy feelings and most of us caught embarrassment about sexual things from people around us when we were very young long so we never get to find out that these words are just words and that it's really healthy and okay to say them out loud cure right. Why should I be embarrassed to say testicles or erections nipples masturbation Vova Clitoris ejaculation? Screwed up Jonah. Being and if you need them they're two more reasons to get over this embarrassment. Experts say number one the doctor. Yeah if your child is is in pain they can tell the pediatrician or you might testicle. Hurts or my Labia itches. Clear baletic invasion also. Dr Brunner says it's possible that a child who lives in a house house where they feel comfortable and open discussing their private parts will be less vulnerable to sexual predators. And if you're up for it. Bonnie rough has one more concrete suggestion suggestion around normalizing bodies yet. Let your kid be naked when they wanna be even if grandma's visiting if we stay child centered. This isn't about about grandma. Thinks before we move on up. We need a quick acknowledgment. Here we know for some of you may be many of you. This is GonNa be challenging where we're headed and in some cases are guidance may actually conflict with your family's beliefs. We put this kit together based on the best research we could find but but this isn't all an exact science and so what we're really asking you to do is listen and think about what is going to be best for your family So take away number to answer your kids questions. What we've learned is the kids are never too young for you to tell them about their bodies ladies and sex clearly simply honestly and let's not forget briefly or as Dr Brenner puts it? It's important to be factual and concise Jason Loving now. If that's hard for you because you're not yet comfortable. Here's some advice to get their practice in the mirror. got a monitor your facial expressions and your tone own practice before you do it. That's Britney McBride. She's a sex educator with advocates for youth and she's one of the people behind that amazed junior video we heard earlier yeah and Brittany says she benefited from her own family's determination to get this stuff rate. My parents were actually teenagers when they had me and went the complete eight opposite from what they received from their parents. So we started talking about sacs from as early as I can remember. So Britney is based in New Orleans and she has worked with forty of the largest school district in the country to improve sex ED and she says keeping our cool makes us more approachable as parents. And that's really important. Do it in a way that makes them feel safe in that. You are a trusted person to come and talk to about those things. Britney gives the pros approach to the classic classic question. Where did I come from which her own daughter asked when she was maybe five or six years old really? When kid is that young the question is not so much about about sex but instead of space and time? And where was I before I got here. And how did I get here as opposed to the actual act of sex in in how they were created so for young children and this may be familiar from our episodes on race and on death. Find out why they're asking and then answer exactly what they're asking. No more no less so in other words keep things very simple very quick talking about the facts around like anatomy explaining that he grew in in your mom's uterus and that's where a baby lives and grows until they are born and then you were born and you joined family and we've loved you you can cover the rest next time. And that's part of the big point here. The birds and the bees should not be one talk. Your kids need to feel comfortable coming to you with their questions. Time and time again Dan so there is a next time and especially when their questions start getting

Preschool Primer with Teacher, Jeann Graham

"My name is Gina Graham. I have been a preschool teacher for thirteen seniors now. I love working with young children. I work with children between the ages of three and five years old. How'd you get into wanting to be a teacher. I have to say saying this. I know it sounds cheesy and everyone when they asked me this question. I take a breath before I answer. It and I say I'm going to be honest. It was my fourth grade teacher and I don't know if it's okay to you say her name. Her name is Mrs Reinisch and since Fourth Grade. I said I WANNA be a teacher. I want to work with children and make them feel the way that she made me feel. Two of my children have been taught by you and they they you have the Reggio Emilia approach to me a little bit above I have have to say I knew nothing about the Reggio Emilia approach before I started working at the school that I work out when I first learning about regimen mealy approach which is it's a little town in Italy and it's based on children learning about activities that they WANNA learn about and it's very play based and project based and so for example just because because it's the fall time we're not going to study pumpkins and go apple picking because that's what you usually do in school. We sit back. We focus on the children we focus on what they are interested interested in and then we take those tools and apply learning aspects to that and so you know a lot of times. You'll like when we when the kids start their school year you. You don't know what you know what they're going to be focusing on right. There's no plan at all. We don't have any set curriculum. the first few weeks is sort of just the teachers we actually saw start it off in small groups and so what that looks like. I have a classroom of children. Last year I had nineteen children and for the first four weeks of school we start start off with half groups and so we'll have nine or ten children with three teachers and so at that time we have a wonderful opportunity to really just focus on the children as individuals individuals with their interested in with their questions what they're wondering about and then after the first few weeks of school we come together as a staff we brainstorm when we talk about these interests and see how we can then bring it back to the children in a way of learning through

Local teacher donates kidney to student 

"There's a fifty six year old guy and Fort Lauderdale his name is Neil is diagnosed with kidney disease mecca, two thousand one, two years ago. He found out he needed a kidney transplant. So last year things got desperate. They couldn't find anyone who could donate and he was getting bad. His daughter's first grade teacher said she would donate Alison Maluku. Her husband Jason actually donated a kidney to someone else about ten years ago. So she knew what the process was all about. But when she got tested turned out, she wasn't a match either. But then a preschool teacher, Neil. Named what? Yeah. The preschool teacher that Neil new name Brittany. There's, there's a story here. He's got to stay. Brittany secretly got tested, and she was the only problem her kid. He was too small for Neil, so she set up what's called a chain donation. Okay. Were they? So I, she donated kidding someone in Boston. Then in return, Neil got a kidney from someone in California, and then the chain reaction caused four people's lives to be saved. Wow. Wow. That's awesome. But remember the first teacher who wasn't a match even though she couldn't help Neill, she still wanted to donate two minutes later. She kicked off another chain donation that saved four more lives including a fourteen year old boy. So eight lives were saved from one kidney donation in Florida.
