Finally, I had been hoping to have all of our own curriculum written and published by now, so that I could use it for my own family.
Mar 2, ArticlesEssential Reading comments I want to start this article by doing a little thought experiment. Imagine for a moment that you are in a group of twenty people.
In that twenty people there is a defined leader and that leader is responsible for motivating you, teaching you, and otherwise organizing group activities.
Things are going along OK, but then at some point the group leader decides that they are not happy with the activities of the group. Some of you are going to the bathroom too much, some of you are too easily distracted, and others are simply not following the rules.
Forms of emotional abuse: The group leader says it is for your own good and that it will teach you life skills, but for you it is an emotional horror show. I mean, can you imagine the emotions that you would feel?
Singled out in a group of twenty, publicly labeled as a loser too stupid to follow the rules, the subject of derisive and degrading attention, isolated, even terrorized by the psychological horror, you would be traumatized for a long period of time, maybe for life.
And this would be true even if the group you were in was relatively supportive. Even if they downplayed the social isolation and public shaming, you would still feel it at a deep level.
We are social beings after all and as the great Robert Merton said, we get our self-image in part by the way others see us.
And if we think others are seeing us as some stupid loser which is the intent of socially isolating someone in this fashion then that is how we are going to see ourselves. And that cannot help but have a negative, disturbing, impact on us. Your illustrious leader has isolated you and degraded you in front of his or her charges, and they are likely to do the same.
Human beings, children, adults, learn what is modeled to them. If an authority figure models isolation, degradation, and abuse, chances are that the people watching are going to do it to.
Sadly even when you leave the confines of the classroom, even when you leave isolation and re-enter the social fabric, degradation is going to follow you. This means that the deep psychological, emotional, even spiritual trauma of the initial event is going to be revisited on you over, and over, and over again.
If this sounds like hell on Earth, you would be right. Even adults buckle and break under the abuse of degradation. And it has just gotten worse. Adults model emotional abuse to children, and children take the hammer and bring it down even harder.FREE printable Spelling Practice teaching resources for Primary School teachers.
