Wishcasting Wednesday


It is once again Wishcasting Wednesday and Jamie Ridler asks us:
Where do you wish to be fierce?
With over 30 years in education, I know that I am becoming more and more fierce about mental health issues and abuse in elementary age children.
Children should have happy, carefree lives. So many come to school with huge burdens that prevent them from learning. There are so few resources for these youngsters. If we do not step in sooner, then we will have adults who are damaged and a heavy burden to society.
My greatest wish is that care and resources are provided much, much sooner for these young children that will enable them to have a much happier life.
As Jamie says:
"You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog . Support wishes by visiting other participants. It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together."

Such a powerful - and true hearted - wish. My 9 year old niece is being burdened with the knowledge that "her granny stole all of her money when grandad died" and with that the anger, fears, and burdens of money... at age 9! IMHO She should never have been told of her mother's fight over the will and her step-granny's actions!!! As you wish for yourself - and the children - so I also wish for you - and them.

I'd gladly give up my wish if you could have yours. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also.

Hi Bev,
Can totally understand your wish. It's not only at school that kids encounter the hardest. But it shouldn't be there.
As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too.
Cheers

I agree that we need to reach children sooner. We would have much fewer problems with drugs and prisons later on. Unfortunately many humans prefer to punish crime rather than prevent it.
