While so many parents have been diligently trying to get the message across to the world that injecting known toxins into babies and pregnant women is destroying children everywhere, the perpetrators of this crime against humanity have come up with their own version of reality.
The latest really big lie about the damage done to our kids
For the last several months I’ve been compiling stories about the disaster zones our schools are becoming. Out-of-control behavior now routinely seen in students is being dealt with desperate measures. Physical restraints and seclusion rooms are part of the typical school environment. “Behavior coaches” and off-duty police are regular members of the staff in elementary schools. “Sensory rooms” where students can calm down are an accepted part of schools. Special ed is not just about learning disabilities but also about “mental health problems.” Schools are linking up with local mental health agencies to try and address student behavior. Sped students are being excluded from schools across Britain and Ireland in soaring numbers, even down to pre-school aged children, because of behavior.
The evidence that something is horribly wrong with today’s children is worldwide and it’s growing. U.S. Health officials have been silent on these issues, but I see a change happening. Actually, it’s been several years in the making, but it’s just now in the news everywhere in our country.
A story in the Worcester (MA) Telegram on Sept 19, 2017 explained it all and it’s a must-read for every parent. The title, “Effects of childhood trauma explored in Worcester talk” is really an accusation. The piece is all about how parents have traumatized their own children and schools have been left to deal with the damage.
Two experts gave this presentation at the Worcester Technical High School on Sept 19th.
Dr. Heather Forkey from the Division of Child Protection at UMass Memorial Medical Center and Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, who was described as “a national leader in the emergent study on childhood trauma,” explained what researchers have discovered.
According to Drs. Forkey and Harris, childhood trauma – known as “adverse childhood experiences” or ACEs for short—is a really common occurrence and it can dramatically affect kids’ behavior, health, and learning. Experts have been studying this phenomenon for the past 20 years, and they are just now getting the word out. Harris is very optimistic that the movement across the country to address the effects of ACEs will benefit lots of injured kids.
When she was a new doctor, Harris was able to make the connection between conditions like ADHD and asthma in children and adverse events from their lives at home. We’re told that “a landmark study” released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente in 1998 put all the pieces together for Harris.
The impact of childhood trauma is huge. “That study found that not only had two-thirds of the individuals included in the survey experienced at least one ACE, but that one in eight had endured four or more.” And the carryover into the classroom is also common.
