    'Today is National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day. Take a minute to appreciate each and every child and make sure you are bringing a compassionate understanding to helping kids with behavioral challenges. Today is a day to remember that when we rethink challenging kids, amazing things can happen.' thinkkids.org

    The problem in schools is that ' academics' trumps emotional and socio-moral growth which is a bad thing for kids with challenges

    I think those of us with difficult children do this on a regular basis -- we get it. It's often those with "typical kids" that are the most judgmental of our challenging kids. Good words Allen. Actually, here in the states it was yesterday the 9th.
