    chilul Hashem is making Hashem’s name less. Kidush Hashem is elevating Hashems name. when people are doing more then is the exact halacha it is NOT a chilul Hashem. who cares what the goyim are thinking. what matters is what ur doing. if its something that will lower Hashems name in Hashems eyes- thats a chilul Hashem

    i have a really good book called how to talk so kids can learn. here are some tips. instead of commanding(sit,stop,move,stand,line up….) remind (chaya, ur seat) give information (its easier for morah to teach/read book when every one is sitting). offer a choice (u can sit on the floor or on the chair). describe the problem (i see some girls out of their seat).make it playful (lets make a choo choo train to with our chairs, ok now turn ur chairs to face morah)use a different voice (official tone- attention all girls we will now be having circle time please take ur chairs and put them in a circle….)

    Being that we’re all online here I just wanted to post this email I got a while ago that really scared me, eveyone PLEASE PLEASE READ AND SEND TO OTHER PEOPLE!!!

    After tossing her books on the sofa, shannon decided to grab a snack and

    get on-line. She logged on under her screen name ByAngel213. She

    checked her Buddy List and saw GoTo123 was on. She sent him an instant



    Hi. I’m glad you are on! I thought someone was following me home

    today. It was really weird!


    LOL You watch too much TV. Why would someone be following you?

    Don’t you live in a safe neighborhood?


    Of course I do. LOL I guess it was my imagination cuz’ I didn’t see

    anybody when I looked out.


    Unless you gave your name out on-line. You haven’t done that have you?


    Of course not. I’m not stupid you know.


    Did you have a softball game after school today?


    Yes and we won!!


    That’s great! Who did you play?


    We played the Hornets. LOL. Their uniforms are so gross! They look

    like bees. LOL


    What is your team called?


    We are the Canton Cats. We have tiger paws on our uniforms. They are

    really cool.

    GoTo1 23:

    Did you pitch?


    No I play second base.. I got to go. My homework has to be done before

    my parents get home. I don’t want them mad at me. Bye!


    Catch you later. Bye

    Meanwhile…….GoTo123 went to the member menu and began to search

    for her profile. When it came up, he highlighted it and printed it

    out. He took out a pen and began to write down what he knew about

    Angel so far.

    Her name: Shannon

    Birthday: Jan. 3, 1985

    Age: 13

    State where she lived: North Carolina

    Hobbies: softball, chorus, skating and going to the mall. Besides this

    information, he knew she lived in Canton because she had just told

    him. He knew she stayed by herself until 6:30 p.m. every afternoon

    until her parents came home from work. He knew she played softball on

    Thursday afternoons on the school team, and the team was named the

    Canton Cats. Her favorite number 7 was printed on her jersey. He knew

    she was in the eighth grade at the Canton Junior High School . She had

    told him all this in the conversations they had on- line. He had

    enough information to find her now.

    Shannon didn’t tell her parents about the incident on the way home

    from the ballpark that day. She didn’t want them to make a scene and

    stop her from walking home from the softball games. Parents were

    always overreacting and hers were the worst. It made her wish she was

    not an only child. Maybe if she had brothers and sisters, her parents

    wouldn’t be so overprotective.

    By Thursday, Shannon had forgotten about the footsteps following her.

    Her game was in full swing when suddenly she felt someone staring at

    her. It was then that the memory came back. She glanced up from her

    second base position to see a man watching her closely.

    He was leaning against the fence behind first base and he smiled when

    she looked at him. He didn’t look scary and she quickly dismissed the

    sudden fear she had felt.

    After the game, he sat on a bleacher while she talked to the coach..

    She noticed his smile once again as she walked past him. He nodded and

    she smiled back. He noticed her name on the back of her shirt. He knew

    he had found her.

    Quietly, he walked a safe distance behind her. It was only a few

    blocks to Shannon ‘s home, and once he saw where she lived he quickly

    returned to the park to get his car.

    Now he had to wait. He decided to get a bite to eat until the time

    came to go to Shannon ‘s house. He drove to a fast food restaurant and

    sat there until time to make his move.

    Shannon was in her room later that evening when she heard voices in

    the living room.

    ‘Shannon, come here,’ her father called. He sounded upset and she

    couldn’t imagine why. She went into the room to see the man from the

    ballpark sitting on the sofa.

    ‘Sit down,’ her father began, ‘this man has just told us a most

    interesting story about you.’

    Shannon sat back. How could he tell her parents anything? She had

    never seen him before today!

    ‘Do you know who I am, Shannon ?’ the man asked..

    ‘No,’ Shannon answered.

    ‘I am a police officer and your online friend, GoTo123.’

    Shannon was stunned. ‘That’s impossible! GoTo is a kid my age! He’s

    14. And he lives in Michigan !’

    The man smiled. ‘I know I told you all that, but it wasn’t true. You

    see, Shannon , there are people on-line who pretend to be kids; I was

    one of them. But while others do it to injure kids and hurt them, I

    belong to a group of parents who do it to protect kids from predators.

    I came here to find you to teach you how dangerous it is to talk to

    people on-line. You told me enough about yourself to make it easy for

    me to find you. You named the school you went to, the name of your

    ball team and the position you played. The number and name on your

    jersey just made finding you a breeze.’

    Shannon was stunned. ‘You mean you don’t live in Michigan ?’

    He laughed. ‘No, I live in Raleigh .. It made you feel safe to think I

    was so far away, didn’t it?’

    She nodded.

    ‘I had a friend whose daughter was like you. Only she wasn’t as lucky.

    The guy found her and murdered her while she was home alone.. Kids are

    taught not to tell anyone when they are alone, yet they do it all the

    time on-line. The wrong people trick you into giving out information a

    little here and there on-line. Before you know it, you have told them

    enough for them to find you without even realizing you have done it. I

    hope you’ve learned a lesson from this and won’t do it again. Tell

    others about this so they will be safe too?’

    ‘It’s a promise!’

    That night Shannon and her Dad and Mom all knelt down together and

    thanked God for protecting Shannon from what could have been a tragic
