Let’s address "Aggressive Behavior” together

  Call it what you want ... intimidation / harassment / abuse / bullying / aggressive behavior ...

  The fact of the matter is we have all been touched in some way, either directly or indirectly, with behavior that is “out of control”.  One sad but accurate description of the day and age we live in today is “out of control behavior”. And interestingly enough it is not just our young people who are facing aggressive behavior from bullies in school.   So also do our elderly loved ones in the various retirement living settings or in the nursing homes.  Aggressive behavior is an increasing issue in the work place, the playground, and actually anywhere else that you find two or more people.

  Rather than let aggressive behavior take over the world we live in, “Let’s Address Aggressive Behavior Together” by coming together on Wednesday, October 9 from 6:30-8pm at the Rittmueller Middle School where a panel of local experts from our community (schools, Senior facilities, police, spiritual leaders) will help us to understand WHERE aggressive behavior happens, HOW to identify it (signs to look for), and WHAT to do (tools, resources, options) to take control of it in our lives.

  This evening of awareness building is being sponsored by CrossRoads Counseling Ministries and the Saginaw Valley Stephen Ministry Alliance.   It has been a most enjoyable experience to work along-side of the people putting this event together.  We are so blessed to be residents of such a caring community that is willing to roll up our sleeves and work together to address issues that are bigger than any one of us and strive together to help bring positive and helpful options that will enable us to better take control of the aggressive behaviors that impact us all.

  We are grateful for the opportunity to address this issue in a public forum and be of help to those struggling with this issue.  As we draw closer to October 9 we look forward with excitement to your attendance as we learn and work and grow together to make a difference in our community.

  While the event is FREE, we would like you to RSVP to or call (989-652-0764).   See you at Rittmueller school on Wednesday, October 9 at 6:30pm.
