I know: here we go with the back and forth, but since the post is placed amidst other more benign materiaols it seems meant to troll. So there is my response. Now we have Arafat virtually dumping Abbas, the PM, and Israel and the US saying it will not deal with Arafat; and the EU saying it will deal with Arafat; and the US and Israel saying Hamas terror group and EU saying the political end of Hamas ok so they will accept Hamas and on and on and on.
Extractions: BACK TO SCHOOL TIPS Click Here to Send These Tips to a Friend or Family Member! Consejos Para el Regreso a Clases (PDF File) The following health and safety tips are from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Feel free to excerpt these tips or use them in their entirety in any print or broadcast story, with acknowledgment of source. MAKING THE FIRST DAY EASIER Remind your child that she is not the only student who is a bit uneasy about the first day of school. Teachers know that students are anxious and will make an extra effort to make sure everyone feels as comfortable as possible. Point out the positive aspects of starting school: It will be fun. She'll see old friends and meet new ones. Refresh her positive memories about previous years, when she may have returned home after the first day with high spirits because she had a good time. Find another child in the neighborhood with whom your youngster can walk to school or ride with on the bus. If you feel it is appropriate, drive your child (or walk with her) to school and pick her up on the first day.
Back To School Safety The summer will soon be over and, before you know it, the kids will be starting back to school. For some of us the ringing of the school bell will bring a big sigh of relief. http://www.med.navy.mil/sites/nhrota/SafetyTopics/Kids/Pages/BacktoSchoolSafety.

Extractions: Back-To-School Safety Checklist When you drop off your child at school, use this checklist to make sure these hidden hazards aren't waiting to cause injury or death. Drawstrings on Jackets and Sweatshirts There should be no drawstrings on hoods or around the neck. Drawstrings at the waist or bottom of jackets should extend no more than 3 inches to prevent catching in car and school bus doors or getting caught on playground equipment. Loops on Window Blind Cords Cut the loop and attach separate tassels to prevent entanglement and strangulation in window blind cords. One child a month strangles and dies in the loop of a window blind pull cord or inner cord. Keep cords out of childrens' reach. Install cord stops to prevent formation of loop in inner cord. Bike Helmets Buy a helmet that meets one of the safety standards (U.S. CPSC, Snell, ANSI, ASTM, or Canadian), and insist that your children wear the helmet each time they ride their bike. About 900 people, including more than 200 children, are killed annually in bicycle-related incidents, and about 60 percent of these deaths involve a head injury. More than 500,000 people are treated annually in U.S. hospital emergency rooms for bicycle-related injuries. Research indicates that a helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by up to 85 percent.
Extractions: BNET Log In Join Search The Consumer Product Safety Commission (C.P.S.C.) is helping parents, teachers, and caregivers look for hidden hazards to help prevent injuries and deaths to children. C.P.S.C.'s Back to School Safety Checklist offers tips on making schools, childcare facilities and playgrounds safer. "Take a few minutes to check your child's school, childcare facility and playground for hidden hazards which we don't always think about during this busy time of year," said CPSC Chairman Ann Brown. "Use our checklist to make sure your children head back to school safely." The Back to School Safety Checklist is available on C.P.S.C.'s web site at www.cpsc.gov or by sending a postcard to C.P.S.C., Washington DC 20207. Hidden hazards include the following: Playgrounds Check the surfaces around playground equipment. There should be a 12-inch depth of wood chips, mulch, sand or pea gravel, or there should be mats made of safety-tested rubber or fiber material to prevent head injury when a child falls. Each year, more than 200,000 children are treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms for playground-associated injuries. Most of these injuries occur when a child falls from the equipment. Drawstrings on Jackets and Sweatshirts Remove drawstrings on hoods or around the neck. Cut drawstrings at the waist or bottom of jackets and sweatshirts to 3 inches. Since 1985, 22 children have died when drawstrings caught on school buses, playground equipment and other products.

Extractions: Main Autumn News As children are now back in school, it is important to help them get to and from school safely. Be sure to observe the speed limits in school zones and supervise your children on their way to and from school. Before you leave your child at home alone after school, you should make sure that he feels safe and comfortable and can handle the responsibility. Most children are not ready to be left alone until they are at least eleven or twelve years old, but it will depend on your child's maturity level. You may want to gradually let him stay home alone for very short times to make sure he is ready. Some things to review before you leave your child home alone include: Make sure that he is comfortable being home alone.
