As a writer, blogger and special educator, I am often critiqued by somebody about something. Most recently I was bashed for using my southern accent in my book, 3rd Grade is AUsome.  My response to this critic was simple.  I write about what I know and what I am.  I AM SOUTHERN, born and breed, and I speak with a southern accent.

Children are critiqued daily. I hear it a lot in the school hallways as the students switch classes. Friends jokingly ribbing another for his outfit, or grades or  what happened in class. Sometimes adults may even do so without being aware of it.    When my children come home I try to provide a safe haven for their ears and brains by using kind and uplifting words when we discuss their school day.  Don’t get me wrong, my words aren’t sappy or pacifying, but when they, or their friends, come home they don’t have to respond to “why did you wear that shirt”, or “why is your backpack like that”  and never will they have to answer  “why did you say y’all instead of you all!!”  Be a cheerleader not a critic!!  #BeAwesome


PS…..3rd Grade is AUsome is now available at any of these digital stores: Barnes&Noble (nook), Kobo,  24symbols, Page Foundry, Scribbd, Tolino and Apple iBooks.
