Stereotyping Children Creates Fundamental Failure

Fundamental Failure
Having your physical, mental, and emotional needs in a
particular situation neglected or denied, setting you up
to fail despite your own efforts

Children with dental problems that go untreated can be “distracted” by their pain and “easily agitated” in school. The stereotyping explanation for teachers and school administrators is that easily agitated children are exhibiting behavior problems. Strategies to end behavior problems will not alleviate dental pain. Neglecting dental problems sets up children in pain to fail despite their own efforts.

A web host transfer made some posts disappear. Luckily, I copied each post and emailed it to myself. Since I alternated success and failure posts, I will have to remove posts and republish them in success and failure order. I will do this as I have time. Apologies.
