No More Children Feeling Failure -All Children Need Success

The teacher, parents, school, and community have to make a difference in the life of a child. So many dropouts, because no one showed them their self-worth. I once had a child with his head down on the table, and I remember the day he pulled it up, and he never put it down again. I said to my class, "I have some geniuses in this classroom, and they all looked at me like I had lost my mind. The one student with his head down pulled it up off the table and said, "why did you say that?" I told him that I saw him running on a field one day, and he was out running everyone. You know he never put his head down again. He went one step further in making me proud that I took the time to let him know he was worthy of being called special. He became a student that went from failure to being an A student. His outlook on school completely changed.

Some of the most intelligent and talented human beings in this world had problems in school with learning. Some were even thought to be behavior problem children. Some adults like Albert Einstein and Thomas Eidson had problems in school. They were brilliant people with a lot of talent. I find it is our attitude that makes the difference in the lives of those that might think of not finishing school and dropping out. If each person in a community took some time to help a young person to have a positive attitude about themselves, then think of what they might achieve. Life could be different. They would not be the one without a high school diploma, and they would not be worrying about where their next dollar was coming from to support themselves. I ask you all to take the time to let a young person know that they are special, and you find that unique thing that makes them a human being worthy of finishing school. You will always be proud you did. I am not just talking about the teacher, but the parent and everyone in the child's world.

There are those children that we hear of that have committed school violence, because they lost the will to be that special person in life and achieve great things. I ask myself now, if that is not a huge problem that education and the community missed. A child withdrawn into an abnormal world might think there is no other way in life. I disagree with the approach that has been suggested that teacher's need to arm themselves in school. What does that teach these children? I am not suggesting that we do not secure our schools, but these children need to be identified and worked with. They need hope for a future, and all those whose lives were lost in school shootings would not have died, if someone had found the need and helped them to grow. I am talking about those that committed the violent acts. I am not saying things would not happen, but the chances of happy students doing this violent act might certainly decrease, and the incidence might become very unlikely.

Seven years ago, I wrote a book that was directed in doing two things. The greatest objective of this book was to bring out that communities and individuals that need to help others in their communities in order for children to grow up and be successful. Teachers cannot do this alone. The second goal of that book was to make people aware of the legacy that all of us leave to the future, and animals leave their legacy as well. Most of the animals in the book had been rescued. Each one was special and touched a life. Every living thing leaves its own legacy, and the legacy can be good or bad. Personally remembering the good things must come forth first in everyone's life. Many of us have owned pets or see animals in the zoo, or we sometimes find strays that walk into our lives, but they are there. Just like animal rescue is important, and we must rescue children from the attitude of failure in life. No matter what their issues are, then we need to seek to help them grown. Communities must be responsible for the children and the future of our animals. I see a stray animal sometimes, and I also see children on the street with no one to care about their welfare. Where are the parents I ask myself, but I realize they either don't have any, or the parent is a full-time worker. In our society, the parent must make a living to provide for their children. Many schools have opened up after school programs for just that cause. Time will only tell if a community cares or not about their citizens. I wrote this article several years back in time, and I have decided to edit it and look toward the current time. Has education or success of children changed in importance?

This is 2017 and so few realize the message that I tried to bring out, and whether the book was actually read or not is not as important as students feeling hope, secure, and success in their own way. Every child born is different, and some are similar, but on the whole, we must look to each special gift that is within them. Instead of hope for each child, then I am finding the teardown of our education systems, and I am seeing no vision of good education abounding by the numbers. I seriously see the stress on education, and the lack of interest and funding for it just appalling. They need so much from each community, and in the end, I want you as a citizen to ask yourself; why the dropouts? Why did we not take them into success, and not violence? Why were they not given our time and effort to do this? As a former teacher, I will not give up on my destiny to bring change to the minds of each and every community everywhere. Children are the future, and education cannot be overlooked.

    This is 2015, and I am still looking for those that can help to do so. You must realize until we take a stand to help children be successful that our society cannot break the crime, and despair that some children find, when they seek to get our attention. Do not let it be too late for them. All need a chance to be successful. I cannot say that enough, because I still find children who dropped out of school, or you hear about those who committed violent crimes, and I think could this be different?

    This is the year 2015 , and I still see the need more now, than I did several years ago. Teens that do not see self worth end up in despair, and society begins to see the real future behind failure. Success means everything to the future of our world, and we must begin to see this.

    I wrote this hub way back, when I first started writing on hub pages, and yet no one seems to care about reading it but a very few people. This should be the priority of society to put these children first. Why we have so many problems in our world now is because they were not put first. I come back after several years , and I see the need more now, than I did at that time. Teenagers are still dropping out of school, and no one seems to have reached them. Now is the time to take action to find them, and change those lives forever.

    Thanks Winsome because you make me proud I chose teaching. Now, I have devoted my self as a writer to make it happen for kids. I will not give up until my voice is heard around the world, and others know my ideas count. Children must count.

    LBW, a few teachers like you made all the difference in the world for my self-confidence and performance in school. I can't thank them, but I can thank you. Keep doing what you're doing--you are changing the world one student at a time. =:)

    Too many of our students have lost the most important things inside of them to become labeled by tests and other standardized tests. We need to find all that wonderful inner talent these children have and help them to succeed. I do agree that we need to look at changing our way of thinking about them.

    True. One of the reason why kids ended up as a failure as they grow old is that they are conditioned to fail at school. In my opinion, school rankings should not be exercised. I know the system is there to encourage students to be better but there are negative effects that it brings along as well.

    Would it be better to appreciate every student and help them be good in class without determining who's the best or the lowest?
