Don't be a statistic. It's #TeenDriverSafetyWeek! For teens, driving means freedom. That doesn’t necessarily translate to safety. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens (15 to 18 years old), in the US. Now is a great time to get the conversation going with your teenage about the rules of the road, so their inexperience doesn't turn dangerous. #GGPD32 #SafeStreetsGG #StayAlertGG #OTS #GG1956 #GardenGrove Garden Grove City Hall Garden Grove PA California Office of Traffic Safety

Teasing is a part of growing up. Almost everyone experiences it. However, it becomes bullying when it's repetitive, or when there's a conscious intent to hurt another person. Bullying is not acceptable, no matter what age it happens at. Victims of #bullying are often shy and tend to be physically weaker than their peers. They may also have low self-esteem and poor social skills, which makes it hard for them to stand up for themselves. Know the signs: * Increased passivity or withdrawal. * Unexplainable injuries. * Lost or destroyed belongings. * Frequent headaches, stomachaches or faking illness. * Changes in eating habits. * Frequent nightmares. * Declining grades/loss of interest in school. * Decreased self-esteem or feelings of helplessness. * Self-destructive behaviors such as running away from home, talk of suicide or harming themselves. Tips on preventing bullying: * Help kids understand what bullying is; how to stand up to it safely and how to get help. * Keep the lines of communication open by checking with kids often, know their friends, ask about school and listen to their concerns. * Role-play situations to teach your child ways to respond. * Model how to treat others with kindness and respect. For more information on bullying prevention, go to http://bit.ly/2NQNH73. . We all have something that makes us special. Focus on that; and appreciate other people for their strengths. In a world where you can choose to be anything, choose to #BeKind. Choose to #DoGood. Choose to #BeHappy. #GGPD32 #ourfuture #BeYou #standup #antibullying #noneedtofitin #NationalStopBullyingDay Garden Grove City Hall
