Parenting Press: How Teens Learn About Values

A parent’s role in a teen’s evolving value system is to keep your teen safe and provide emotional support while helping him stay focused on the issues he is calling into question.

Tip—Teens who have a strong family value system to question and argue against have a firm basis on which to create their own values.

Teen behavior is an expression of what is happening developmentally. It is natural for teens to question and test the values they have been raised with. Adolescence brings with it an increased ability to think abstractly. Teens use this ability to question values from every angle. They talk it out and they act it out.

According to Dr. Harriet Heath, developmental psychologist and author of Using Your Values to Raise Your Child to Be an Adult You Admire, “This exploring is part of their developmental task of establishing who they are and by what values they wish to live.”

Teenagers need the love, support, and guidance of their parents to keep in touch with life as it really is and to have a secure base from which to question. According to Heath, teens need parents to discuss issues without jumping to the conclusion that their child is experimenting with something just because he is exploring the issue verbally; they need parents to discuss issues calmly without becoming defensive or judgmental.

“This kind of verbal exploration is vital for teenagers,” she writes. “Being able to explore questions with a trusted adult who knows them well, as well as with friends, teachers, and others who may be available, puts the teenager in a better position to face the issues squarely.”

Tools—A parent’s role in a teen’s evolving value system is to keep your teen safe and provide emotional support while helping him stay focused on the issues he is calling into question.

What is the value involved with the issue? Is it your value and your teen’s? What are the implications of holding this value and acting on it?

During the teen years you are not so much a source of information about the value, but a help in exploring the implications of that value. You can provide needed facts, clarify statements, diffuse challenges, and remain calm. This last task can be, perhaps, one of the most difficult if one’s own values are being challenged.

Heath recommends keeping the discussion nonconfrontational. You can say something like, “That’s a strong statement. What raised this issue for you now?” Or ask matter-of-factly, “Are you telling me what to expect when you come in on Saturday night?”

Link to book description

Heath also comments that parents who know their own values well and can describe what they mean and why they are important will be most helpful to their questioning teens.

You’ll find more practical tips you can use right now in Using Your Values to Raise Your Child to Be an Adult You Admire by Harriet Heath, Ph.D.

Give blood with the American Red Cross before the holiday season and help save lives

Many regular donors delay giving between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day because of holiday activities……….

(Oct. 24, 2016) – The American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to give blood to help stock the shelves before the busy holiday season.

 

Many regular donors delay giving between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day because of holiday activities. This often causes a drop in donated blood available for patients. Therefore, more donations are needed in the weeks leading up to the holidays to help ensure the blood supply is sufficient through the winter months.

 

For blood donor Katie Osorio, giving a little bit of time is worth it because she’s giving someone a chance at life. “Someone’s mother, brother, sister, father or the love of someone’s life has been given back to their loved ones all because I gave something that I could. It takes so little from me and gives a world back to another.”

 

To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors are encouraged to make appointments and complete the RapidPass online health history questionnaire at redcrossblood.org/rapidpass to save time when donating.

Be Safe this Halloween Season

Stay safe and protect your neighbors by making a plan to get home without getting behind the wheel on Halloween Night if you’ve been drinking…….

Safe Communities of Wood County announced today that the annual safe driving Halloween National Mobilization is October 31, 2016 to November 1, 2016.

 

Halloween means parties, and parties can encourage alcohol consumption. Because of this, Safe Communities of Wood County is partnering with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for The Halloween National Mobilization.

 

Plan Before You Party to Get You Home Safely

You can stay safe and protect your neighbors by following these tips:

  • Plan a safe way to get home before you party because alcohol impairs You’re not going to make smart and safe choices if you’ve been drinking.
  • Designate a sober driver, call a taxi, or a call a sober friend of family member to get
  • Buzzed Driving Is Drunk There’s no such thing as “I only had a couple.” If you’ve been drinking you shouldn’t be driving.
  • If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact local law enforcement when it is safe to do
  • If you see someone you think is about to drive while impaired, take their keys and help them get home
  • If you’re caught drinking and driving you could face jail time, the loss of your driver’s license, and pay around $10,000 due to higher insurance rates, attorney fees, court costs, car towing and repairs, and lost wages due to time off from
  • Some people mistakenly think they can avoid a DUI by refusing to take a breath Wrong. In many jurisdictions a refusal to take a breath test results in the loss of your driver’s license on the spot and the impoundment of your vehicle.
    Walking impaired can be just as dangerous as drunk Designate a sober friend to walk you home.
  • In 2013, 26 percent of all pedestrian fatalities on Halloween night involved a drunk

 

Remember, Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. Stay safe and protect your neighbors by making a plan to get home without getting behind the wheel on Halloween Night if you’ve been drinking.

A walk-thru was held on Thursday September 29, 2016 to review the “punch-list”.  The electrical upgrade should occur mid-October as we are dependent on AEP when scheduling this.  A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Friday October 28, 2016 at 2:00pm so please join us to celebrate this exciting update to the village.
  1. Main Street Corridor – The Village will be going out for bid prior to the year’s end on the first phase of the downtown revitalization. This first phase will be the replacement of the waterline from State St., under the RR tracks to Broadway St.  The actual work on this project will begin in the spring of 2017.   The Village moved to the next round for our Phase II of this project in Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) funding when the committee met September 20, 2016.  Our Phase II project was selected to move forward in the review process.  This application was for monies to fund the waterline replacement from Broadway St. to Walnut St.  The village will receive notice on whether we receive the funds for Phase II prior to July of 2017.
  1. Leaf Bags & Leaf Pick UpThe village has leaf bags available now in the village office. Each property owner can pick up 10 leaf bags for free, after that they are sold in bundles of 5 bags for $1.  Property owners need to have their filled leaf bags curbside in front of their property in order to be picked up by the village and there cannot be anything other than leaves in the bags.  Any bags containing trash, yard waste, or grass clippings will not be picked up.  There is no set date for leaf pick up, but street dept. employees will pick them up as they see them.
  1. Halloween Parade – The annual Village Halloween Parade will take place on Saturday October 29, 2016 at 7:00pm.  This year’s theme will be “Hometown Heroes” as a tribute to our Police, Fire, EMS, and Military personnel.  Sign- up sheets are available in the Village Office.
  1. Village Facebook Page – The Village of North Baltimore now has a Facebook page where we will be keeping citizens informed of upcoming events, weather-related notices, delays, and other items of a professional nature. Check us out and “like” our page.
  1. Citizen request for sign – At the September 20, 2016 council meeting North Baltimore resident David Richmond stopped by to ask that council consider his request to have a street sign placed in the right of way (boulevard) in front of his home at 101 N. Tarr St.  Street Dept. Supervisor Doug Wickard worked with the county to obtain a sign that addressed the issue without requiring a change in the traffic map for the village.
  1. Amplex –Water Tower @ Grant Road – Amplex is scheduled to begin installation of its equipment on the village Water Tower on Grant Road sometime this week.  This collaboration has taken nearly 2 years to come to fruition but now with this equipment on the tower the communications capabilities between the Sheriffs’ Dept. and our safety forces will be much improved.
  1. Municipal Building Communications Tower – The excavation for the communications tower at the municipal building is scheduled to begin this week (weather dependent).   Once the foundation has been poured, it needs to cure for 10 days then the date will be set for the tower installation.  The tower parts will be assembled in the village lot next to the RR tracks and brought down the street then raised with a crane and set in place.  Once a date is scheduled for this installation, council will be notified.
  1. Demolition and Clean-Up of Beckett St Shed – The NB Street Dept. worked last week on the demolition and clean-up of an old shed located on Beckett St.  The home that was located on this lot was raised by the village back in 2014 but the shed was not included in the project at that time.  NB Police received numerous complaints about the shed with regard to possible drug activity and squatting.  The Street Dept. worked with Patterson Sanitation to demolish and haul more than 2 ton of debris from this site.
  1. Garden Club Flowerbed Move – Street Dept. Supervisor Doug Wickard met with representatives from the NB Garden Club to address issues with the sign and flowerbed located on SR 18 across from Old Maplewood Cemetery.  Plans were made to work with the Garden Club members to make this flowerbed more easily accessible for the club members.  This move will take place in the next few weeks.
  1. Tiles Moved from Ballpark area  –  The cement tiles located near the low land baseball field that were left over from the sewer separation project have been properly disposed of.  Village employees from the Street Dept. loaded and hauled the tile to Portage, Ohio for disposal.
  1. Advertise Vacancy in Dispatch – One of the NB Police Dispatchers has given his two week notice as he has been hired at the county.  Chief Baer would like to advertise for this vacancy.  This is a part-time position that pays $8.10 per hour.

Proposed Motion:  Recommendation to allow the village administrator to advertise for the vacancy in dispatch.

  1. EMS Employees – EMS Chief Will Matthes has requested to hire Mrs. Becky Walter as an EMS volunteer with Intermediate Certification.  In this capacity, Mrs. Walter would be paid $12 per call when she is called out in a volunteer capacity.  The Chief would also like to recommend Mr. Scott Kaminski for hire as an Intermediate EMT being paid $11.50 per hour.  The form F-19a for both applicants is included in the council packet.

Proposed Motion:  Recommendation to hire Mrs. Becky Walter as a volunteer Intermediate EMT at $12 per run and to hire Mr. Scott Kaminski as a Part-time Intermediate EMT at $11.50 per hour.
