This is my insight using see think wonder. I see how child poverty have affect more than 16.1 million childs in america, despite living in a working family. Most of which are black and latino due to racism, they are also less likely to graduate from high school. In my opinion, i feel that the government should invest in educating every child regardless of their race or where they came from .

Theodore Tan's curator insight, February 3, 2013 10:46 AM

More than 16.1 million children in America are poor, but they live in working families. A disproportionate number are Black and Latino. Poor children lag behind their peers in many ways beyond income: They are less healthy, trail in emotional and intellectual development, and are less likely to graduate from high school. Poor children also are likely to become the poor parents of the future.

Roshini Sykes's curator insight, February 4, 2013 10:04 AM

Black's and Latino's. the ones who are the most poorest. they both are groups that sometimes come from working families. but its just not enough. isnt it unfair when you get to study and gain loads of knowledge when that few americans cant even spell out their name due to the lack of eductaion. they are all americans. those who were thought to be the richest. there are 16.1 million people in that country itself. imagine the rest. what would be the total. there should be a stop to this before more people have to starve to earn.

CDF report: Child hunger and homelessness rampant in the US | Examiner.com

CDF report: Child hunger and homelessness rampant in the US | Examiner.com | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

The Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) released its annual The State of America’s Children report today, Jan. 23, and the data shows childhood poverty has reached record levels in America. One in five children in the country is poor, living in a household at, or below, the Federal Poverty Level.

 

The report notes that globally, while the United States ranks first in Gross Domestic Product and leads the world in its number of billionaires, it is the second worst country when it comes to child poverty rates, just ahead of Romania.

 

“The greatest threat to America’s economic, military and national security comes from no enemy without but from our failure, unique among high income nations, to invest adequately and fairly in the health, education and sound development of all of our young.” — Marian Wright Edelman, President and founder of the Children’s Defense Fund"

 

More than 50 percent of the poor children in the U.S. live in eight states: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas. The number of homeless children has increased 73 percent since 2007 with the Great Recession; one in nine children lacked access to adequate food in 2012.

Babies are very sensitive to chemicals as their immune systems are just preliminary to develop. The delicate skin of babies cannot produce sufficient oil to continue moisturized. Normal skin care products might dry their fine skin and composite the problem. The best decision is to apply natural baby care products for babies.

How To Be A Success At Everything

How To Be A Success At Everything | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Over my 35 years of providing speaking coaching to business executives, I’ve taught an extremely simple process for dealing with challenging questions that I call the ABC approach. What’s great about my approach is that it helps you manage the pausing, panicking, and jumbled thoughts you experience in the face of a tough question. By implementing ABC, you will be able to deliver a strong, coherent answer with ease and impact.

So, how exactly does it work?

1. Align

Alignment has two parts: First, you have to recognize what the questioner has said, and then you have to explain why you feel her perspective has merit. Begin with “I understand…” and briefly repeat her concern, letting her know you are hearing her.

All change champions use "speakership" to lead There's some good stuff in the SOAP slides and links to more. I recommend rehearsing/practicing in front of a mirror and learn to go with what's natural. I also recommend no slides until you mastered delivery and create slides that are a visual aid which is all slides will ever be. Personally I don't use slides at all for presentations under an hour I prefer to share stories and engage in conversation with the audience, skills any one can learn to master

How To Rewire Your Brain For Greater Happiness

How To Rewire Your Brain For Greater Happiness | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could hack into our own brains and rewire them to be happier?

 

Science has shown we actually can thanks to a phenomenon called experience-dependent neuroplasticity. "It’s a fancy term to say the brain learns from our experiences," says Rick Hanson, neuropsychologist and author of the book Hardwiring Happiness. "As we understand better and better how this brain works, it gives us more power to change our mind for the better."

 

Hanson assures he isn't just talking new-age mumbo jumbo. "This is not just 'smell the roses,'" he says. "I am talking about positive neuroplasticity. I am talking about learning. … The brain is changing based on what flows through it."

Ruby Jackson's insight:

Reprograming the mind is extremely difficult for many to do but neccessary for success. Winning the war in our own minds is what will determine not only how far we wil get in life but also in our own personal development.

Childhood Poverty in America

Childhood Poverty in America | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it
The Senate on Thursday approved a measure calling on President Barack Obama to submit a five-year plan to reduce the childhood poverty rate in the United States, which is greater than in any other major country. The amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders was added to a bill reauthorizing a federal child care block grant program. The overall bill was approved by a vote of 97-1. “The United States of America is the richest country in the history of the world. Unfortunately, despite our great wealth, more of our citizens are living in poverty than ever before and we have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country in the industrialized world. We have a moral responsibility to end childhood poverty in America,” Sanders said.

The Big Picture — Poverty and Hunger — Voices of Youth

The Big Picture — Poverty and Hunger — Voices of Youth | Entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

The many dimensions of poverty

 

Usually poverty is thought to be lack of income - for example, a person is considered poor if his/her income is less than $1.25 a day. However, poverty is much more than simply the lack of income. Children living in poverty experience a lack of the material, spiritual, and emotional resources they need to survive, develop and thrive. A certain income does not necessarily mean that a household has all it needs to provide what a child needs for a good start in life. That is why it is important to focus on multidimensional child poverty measures that look beyond income and focus on whether children face deprivations to a range of their basic rights such as health, education, information, nutrition, shelter, water and sanitation.

When children are deprived of these rights in the first years of their life, it can limit their potential for physical, intellectual and emotional development. In turn, many children grow up without the opportunity to be healthy and educated and to feel safe and confident.

Leong Lwl's curator insight, January 24, 2014 11:56 PM

I finally truely understand what is poverty after reading this article. Poor people is those people's income that did not exceed $1.25 but proverty is more even worse.  i feel so unfair for the children that is living in poverty.Children living in poverty experience a lack of the material, spiritual, and emotional resources they need to survive, develop and thrive. 

The cause of behind all this poverty is that if someone does not have the skills or health or the opportunity to secure a decent paying job that can guarantee their basic needs, he/she will likely fall into poverty or it will begin with. 


So i hope everyone to please work hard for the future. As a result,poverty will not fall on us.

Robert Christian's comment, January 27, 2014 8:29 PM
This tells us that poverty is not just lack of money or the things necessary. Poverty also means that they lack what's neccessary for the child to start a good life. Having less than $1.25 a day is already bad enough and they are facing a lot more problems for them. They should focus on helping them with schools, health and all the things they need to start a new life
Natasha Ho's comment, January 30, 2014 8:42 AM
Comments on Steffi’s insight: I agree with what you have stated. All of us ought to be more appreciative and not compare what we have with others. Everyone comes from a different background and I think that it is very important to be happy with what you have and not envy what others have that we do not possess. Like what you have said, the people living in extreme poverty do not even have basic needs for survival yet we are taking for granted how fortunate we are. To be contented with what we have should be where all of us should head towards. In today’s world, youngsters are becoming more pampered and when they do not get what they want or what others have they would be upset which should not be the case.
