Yes Phil, and we should also keep in mind that quite often the misbehaviour of a child is a cry for help.
When a child misbehaves, we need to weigh up factors such as context, background and timing before deciding how to react. Many children are being punished for behaviour they cannot control, or that has justifiable cause.
There could be a number of reasons for misbehaviour:
To gain attention.
Lack of skills to deal with the situation differently.
Forgetting the rules or limits.
Children need limits. They need safe rules within which they can make choices, have responsibility and experience success.
Limits must be clear and consistent! Inconsistency leaves children uncertain about what they can and cannot do.
“It’s not my fault!” Blaming others is modeled for the children on a daily basis: by adults, their peers, in the news etc.
We just have to listen to our so called leaders who put responsibility aside and put the blame of any bad situation during their mandate on their predecessors!

@ Fred the Philistine, Quote: “I agree children should not be bashed around, but if they want to act like animals then maybe they should be treated like one”. End of quote.
Cruaulty to animals is not permitted in our country. May be we should ask the RSPCA to take over the management of our detention centers, and the prisoners will be treated with dignity.
Words of some Australian leader Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull: “We have very, very strong animal welfare standards.
“We condemn cruelty to animals – full stop.”
Greyhound racing will be banned in New South Wales from July 1 next year, with Premier Mike Baird saying the “widespread and systemic mistreatment of animals” cannot be tolerated.
I will copy the words of Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, because I believe that racism is the biggest saddest factor in this drama: “Racism oppresses its victims, but also binds the oppressors, who sear their consciences with more and more lies until they become prisoners of those lies. They cannot face the truth of human equality because it reveals the horror of the injustices they commit.”
Too many Territorians are still coming out of the first fleets.

Maybe we should model our system Norway’s.

We live in a very strange world:
We cannot smack the children when they are naughty; we cannot have a curfew to keep them off the streets; but we can torture them when they become criminals.
No, Original Centralian, it is not “alright for these ‘children’ to hold our town to ransom, forcing the citizens of Alice Springs to lock themselves into their homes after the sun goes down every night”.
But neither is the treatment they received at the detention center.

Alice among nine cities on pilot academy shortlist
“The academy management team will visit these nine cities in coming weeks and meet with community leaders, suppliers and airport operators to further evaluate the feasibility of each location.”
Fingers crossed that nobody will object, no bickering and a unified town will welcome the visitors.


Mayor comments on code of conduct, Anzac Oval
@ Chris2: I have no opinion on the subject, because I do not have the facts.
However, I know that if you have to insult or mock someone, you should have the guts to use your name.
If you cannot, zip the lip.

Pity he did not follow the same pattern for the National Aboriginal Gallery.


Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
GUNNER: Every consultation we have done shows the CBD location is the preferred location, and that’s the only location that offers a sense of place and has the space to be able to do it.
Why not proving it to us and shut our mouths by have a petition signed, names and address, instead of spending money and time with a cup of coffee? It will be easy then to see once for all where the majority lies.

The saga of the “gallery” could be played on the Totem theater’s stage in three acts: Drama, farce, and tragedy.
• Drama – any situation or series of events having vivid, emotional, conflicting, or striking interest or results.
• Farce – comedy in which everything is absolutely absurd. This usually involves some kind of deception or miscommunication.
Farces are popular because they develop in a way that seems more or less realistic, despite the fact that the results are highly improbable.
That is, the characters make decisions that seem to make some sense given the circumstances, but at every turn things get more and more ridiculous
• Tragedy traditionally portrays the protagonist’s fall from high authority or renown to ruin, often predetermined by fate or driven by a tragic flaw. I am waiting for the curtain’s fall.
