  them for their service and commitment to our stu-dents, faculty and communi-ty. November has just begun yet it seems to be flying by so quickly. Be sure to check the November Parent Calen-dar that was sent home last week. There are several things you will not want to miss. Next week is Veteran’s Day.

Mr. Bildner has a varied background in politi-cal science, and law. After practicing law for about a year, he realized that teach-ing and children were his first loves. He returned to school and got a degree in education. While teaching in New York City schools, he started writing chil-dren’s books. In 2006, he left the classroom to write full-time. In addition to picture books and teen novels, he is the co-creator with Loren Long of the New York Times best selling chapter books Sluggers!.     Page Page Page Page 2222 A Page from the Media Center   Author Visit with Author Visit with Author Visit with Author Visit with Phil BildnerPhil BildnerPhil BildnerPhil Bildner Message from Las Clases de Espanol ¡El mercado viene! The market is coming! ¡Hola! This year  , las clases de español  will be holding our annual mercado  from Dec. 8 – Dec. 12th. Again, our students will be able to bar-gain and purchase items with their well-deserved pesos. As usual, we are seeking donations of items for our market – anything from small school supplies to PR items and kids’ meal toys. So please remember us as you clean out those toy boxes to make room for this year’s holiday gifts! In addition to items for our students to “purchase” for them-selves, they will also be able to “purchase” items for donation to needy children in our community through our friends at GOoDworks. Items for el mercado may be dropped off in the office or dropped by Sra. González’s class-rooms. IMPORTANT NOTE: Since MAP testing will be taking place that same week, el Mer-cado  will be more low-key and will not require lots of volunteers. Our students will be focusing on com-municating in Spanish in an authen-tic setting! Many thanks for your help in mak-ing this happen for our students! Señoras González y Fultz .

If your son hits a child at a sports practice. What would you do?   a. Lose your cool, ground your son for a long time, and or spank him.   b. Ignore the kids and let them handle it.   c. Talk to your son about why hitting is wrong at an appropriate time, and give him a consequence that fits the infrac-tion. If he does it again, increase the consequence slightly.   2. Your son and his friends have made a big mess, and now they want to go outside. What would you do?   a. Yell at them to clean up now, be-cause you said so.   b. Argue with them, but finally give in and let them do what they want.   c. Help them clean by making a game out of it or ask your son what the rule is before he goes outside. At an ap-propriate time discuss why it’s im-portant to clean up, and encourage his questions and minor arguments to spur a dialogue. If he continues to disobey, tell his friends they have to go home.   3. You and your pre- teen daughter are renting a few movies, and she wants to rent an R- rated movie that all of her friends have seen. What would you do?   a. Tell her no and that’s the end of it.   b. Argue with her that it’s not appropri-ate, but let her wear you down to let her do what she wants. It takes too much energy sometimes to fight, and it’s not a big deal anyway.   c. At an appropriate time, discuss with her why an R rated movie is not appro-priate for her age, encourage her questions and minor arguments to help spur a discussion. At present, you help her find a more appropriate mov-ie. If she continues to argue, warn her she is about to lose her right to any movie. If she continues, take her home without a movie.   4. You daughter is procrastinating about bedtime by saying that she would like something to eat. What would you do?   a. Make her go to bed hungry because it's her bedtime. You don’t discuss the rules because you’re the adult, and she shouldn’t question or challenge your rules.   b. Go ahead and let her eat a snack before bed. You’re just not up for an argument tonight.   c. If this is the first time she’s done this, give her a healthy snack, but an at ap-propriate time, have a discussion about bedtimes, snacks, and routines. Encour-age her input about what would be best for her at an appropriate time and then hold her to the agreement you strike with her. If after a discussion she still relies on using excuses to stay up, make her go to bed without a snack.   5. What do you do if you kids don't do their chores?   a. Yell and make them do it right then.   b. Do the chores yourself. It’s easier than arguing!   c. Remind them that they need to do their chores. Encourage them to brain-storm what is the best way to remember to do the chores and how they will get done. Hold them to the agreement by giving appropriate pre-agreed conse-quences that fit the infraction if they don’t stick to the agreed rule.   10. What is the main goal of parenting and discipline?   a. To make your children obey you be-cause they are the child and you are the adult.   b. To make sure that everyone is happy. You worry that if you make your child follow the rules, they might hate you, and that’s never healthy either.   c. To raise your children to be independ-ent, responsible people by helping them think for themselves, take responsibility for their actions, and lead productive, happy lives. Although you have rules and make your children follow them, you have fair consequences and encourage a lot of discussion and even minor argu-ing and compromise making from both sides. If you had more 'A' answers, you are more of an authoritarian parent . You stress the importance of obedience in regards to authority, no questions asked. Most authoritarian parents rely on punishment only and a ‘because I said so’ mentality. You are often the cold rule enforcer and believe allowing ‘arguments’ could make you appear weak as a parent or make your child weak. You have all the power. If you had more 'B' answers, you are more of a permissive parent , which means that you exercise very little if any control. You are often more of a friend than a parent to your child. Your child ultimately has most of the power. If you had more 'C' answers, you are more of an authoritative parent . You have rules and give appropriate con-sequences for your child, but also encourage them to think for them-selves, voice their opinion, and learn to manage their own behavior. You always make sure that your child understand that even if they make mistakes, you love them. You are warm but firm with your children. You empower your child.   Your school social worker is always available for parenting support.
