Newsletter – N28 2 September 22 JNR & SNR

 Junior Newsletter 

Our theme for last week’s assembly was “Perseverance.” Do you teach your child how to persevere?
Do you allow your child the freedom to make mistakes, accept the consequences and move on? As a
parent, we need to allow our children to grow by making mistakes. If you have set the
boundaries, you will have the confidence to give your child the space he, or she needs
to learn through perseverance and, in doing so, become resilient. Keep encouraging
and helping but try not to make excuses, blame, or cover for them. A resilient
child is a happy and confident child.

Just something to think about.
Remember Me? My name is Gossip. I have no respect for justice. I maim without killing. I break
hearts and ruin lives. I am cunning, malicious and gather strength with age. The more I am quoted, the
more I am believed. I flourish at every level of society. My victims are helpless. They cannot protect
themselves against me because I have no name and no face. To track me down is impossible. The
harder you try, the more elusive I become. I am nobody’s friend.
Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same. I topple governments and wreck marriages. I ruin
careers and cause sleepless nights, heartaches, and indigestion. I spawn suspicion and generate grief.
I make innocent people cry in their pillows. Even my name hisses. I am called GOSSIP. Office gossip
– Shop gossip – Party gossip – Telephone gossip. I make headlines and headaches. REMEMBER,
before you repeat a story, ask yourself: is it true? Is it fair? Is it necessary?? If not, do not repeat it.

people…Which are you? Ann Landers J. Swart
