Newton 9, Norwalk 1 The varsity softball girls lost to Newton at home, 9- 1, Thursday, July 1. The teamcommitted six errors Concluded p.ll OVIATT ELEMENTARY By Dr. Laura Sivadge Preschool-lst Grade Principal and Rodney Martinez 2nd-3rd Grade Principal Sensitivity to Differences Being "different" from other classmates is tough. Most children are taught not to pick on others because of physical traits or characteristics, such as weight, scars, birthmarks, or glasses. But less obvious differences can make children feel equally apart from their classmates. A growing number of children suffer from serious medical problems, particularly asthma and diabetes, but also seizure disorders, life threatening allergies, AIDS and childhood cancers, as well as disorders from retar- dation to hyperactivity. It is tragic when a child suffer- ing with a disease or condition also is the victim of mock- ing and is excluded by classmates. Parents can do a lot to help make sure that their chil- dren are sensitive toward others, particularly those who may be targeted by classmates as "different." It is not catching. Children do not like to appear afraid in front of their classmates. But a lot of them are. And being around someone with a serious disease can be scary unless a child understands that things like can- cer or epilepsy are not contagious. Tell them that, not only will they not be harmed by being around the ill child, they will actually be helping that child feel better by being kind and sensitive. Give them the facts. AIDS is frightening, both to par- ents and to children. If your child is in a school with children suffering from AIDS, the school should have lots of information available for parents and children. Get it and share it with your child. The most important thing to remember is that people cannot catch AIDS from casual contact-either at home or at school. Children with AIDS have enough of a burden without being shunned by their peers. Teach them what is cruel. It is vital to understand that children with serious allergies really are at risk of dying. Classmates can be very insensitive, mocking those children, or complaining that the whole class can- not have peanut butter cookies because of one child. Help your children understand just how tough it would be to have one of those allergies and to literally be in fear for their life. Concentrate on what is inside. Help your children choose friends for their personality-what is inside. En- courage them to get to know a whole variety of class- mates, including those who might have a disease or dis- order. Talk with your children about what is important in a friend-kindness, a sense of fun and shared inter- ests. Be honest with them about how it makes you feel to see children being excluded and talk to them about how important it is to treat everyone as they would like to be treated. Pity is a burden. There is a big difference between being sensitbze to someone's differences and feeling pity for them. When you pity someone, you are singling them out and, in a way, excluding them. Instead, help your children simply accept that a child has a disease, a con- dition, a disability-and then treat them just like they would any other child. If it is your child. Information is power and it is al- ready available. There is a national organization f6r al- most every disease, condition, or disability. Contact these groups for child friendly handouts for the chil- dren in your child's classroom and school, explaining the facts of your child's difference. Perhaps the teacher would be willing to send parent-oriented fact sheets home with the students. Once your child's classmates understand, a lot of the mystique about the differences will disappear. Friends can be said to "fall in like" with as profound a thud as romantic partners fall in love. - Letty Cottin Pogrebin We Repair All Makes & Models! 802 Sunset Drive - Norwalk, IA 50211 Phone: 515-981-0649 Residence: 515-287-6512 WE'RE A OIAI00) AUTO CARE CENTER
