Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions. Dale Spender, an Australian feminist who has been a strong advocate of female rights in this area, noted that teachers who tried to restore the balance by deliberately ‘favouring’ the girls were astounded to find that despite their efforts they continued to devote more time to the boys in their classrooms. Another study reported that a male science teacher who managed to create an atmosphere in which girls and boys contributed more equally to discussion felt that he was devoting 90 per cent of his attention to the girls. And so did his male pupils. They complained vociferously that the girls were getting too much talking time.

In other public contexts, too, such as seminars and debates, when women and men are deliberately given an equal amount of the highly valued talking time, there is often a perception that they are getting more than their fair share. Dale Spender explains this as follows:

“The talkativeness of women has been gauged in comparison not with men but with silence. Women have not been judged on the grounds of whether they talk more than men, but of whether they talk more than silent women.”

In other words, if women talk at all, this may be perceived as ‘too much’ by men who expect them to provide a silent, decorative background in many social contexts.

You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever.

That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.

Anonymous said: I really like this boy who is honestly the sweetest thing. He is a theatre kid like me and no matter what I do he doesn't seem to notice me. And when I try to get over him or realize we we won't work. God always seems to put a little coincidence, and Everytime I pray for us he shows me a sign or the boy will do something. (He actually just texted me now as I'm asking you.) I just need some verses for love and patience please. Thank you

faithisbeingsureofwhatwehopefor:

I think that it’s important for you to read your Bible and to continue to pray. Pray for him as a human being, pray for yourself as a human being and a child of God, and pray for your relationships with not only this boy but with all people. 

It’s also important to have patience because The Lord has plans for you and when we are so desperate for answers and to know what is going on, we have to remember that His timing is perfect and His plans for us are set. Read Jeremiah 29:11. 

as well as these which I really like

1 Corinthians 13  - chapter of love

Romans 8:38-29 - God’s love in Christ Jesus

Philippians 4:13 - strength

Philippians 4:6 - worry

Psalm 142 - a prayer for help

Psalm 120 - for help

Psalm 119 - as well for help

Psalm 121 - anxiousness

Luke 7- anxiousness

1 John 4:19 He first loved us

1 John 4:7 - God is love

John 14 - for peace

2 Corinthians 13:8-10 - pain and grace

Proverbs 3:5-7 - trusting in the Lord

Dating : 1 Thessalonians 4:4-6

Ephesians 3:14-21 - love of Christ

Hope all this helps!

I’ll be praying for you,

God bless

Hunter

The phrase, “It’ll seem better in the morning” is true as dawn brings light. Jesus is the light of this world, let us use this cycle of life to learn to rely on Him and to have no fear in the darkness.

But the aching faded, too. Things get better — hurt less — over time. If you let them.

Now listen to me, as a man, I know. When boys want to date you, they are going to put their absolute best foot forward. They want you to like them. They will pretend to be someone they are not. So I want you to ask hard questions. Look for consistency. And most importantly you need Christ as your center, because if that isn’t there, you have nothing at all.
