~E-PUB ☱ Somebody else's kids ♟ Were All Just Somebody Else S Kids A Small Seven Year Old Boy Who Couldn T Speak Except To Repeat Weather Forecasts And Other People S Words A Beautiful Little Girl Of Seven Who Had Been Brain Damaged By Terrible Parental Beatings And Was So Ashamed Because She Couldn T Learn To Read A Violently Angry Ten Year Old Who Had Seen His Stepmother Murder His Father And Had Been Sent From One Foster Home To Another A Shy Twelve Year Old From A Catholic School Which Put Her Out When She Became Pregnant What Do We Matter Why Do You Care They Were Four Problem Children Put In Torey Hayden S Class Because No One Else Knew What To Do With Them Together, With The Help Of A Remarkable Teacher Who Cared Too Much To Ever Give Up, They Became Almost A Family, Able To Give Each Other The Love And Understanding They Had Found Nowhere Else Torey Hayden daquelas autoras a quem gosto sempre de voltar Os livros dela s o, para mim, uma verdadeira inspira o Admiro o trabalho dela e a forma como ela lida com todas as situa es Gostaria muito de falar com ela, trocar ideias e experi ncias Cada livro que ela nos traz um pequeno peda o de um mundo anormal que tenta viver na normalidade de um mundo mais alargado Por m, eu questiono sempre O que ser normal Eu tenho a minha pr pria defini o e interpreta o de normalidade e, por aquilo que vou lendo nas entrelinhas dos livros da Torey, penso que vou de encontro quilo que ele pensa.Em cada livro nos apresentada uma hist ria ou um conjuntos de hist rias Tudo depende do n mero de crian as que fazem parte do livro Os filhos do afecto um livro onde Torey nos oferece a hist ria de tr s crian as Lori, Tomaso, Cl udia e Boo, Eles constituem uma turma pouco oficial da autora Cada um tem as suas especificidades e cada um ser protagonista de conquistas, l grimas, tristeza e aceita o Ainda n o consegui encontrar uma explica o, mas este foi um dos livros da autora que mais me emocionou e tocou E estranho porque j li livros dela com hist rias bem mais fortes e desesperantes do que estas Achei todas as crian as especiais e n o consigo destacar uma que me tenha feito vibrar mais do que as outras No fundo, todas elas significaram alguma coisa para mim Da Lori, admiro a persist ncia e vontade de fazer diferente Apesar de toda a for a que ela emana e daquele jeito nico de lidar com os outros, tamb m ela tem o seu lado fr gil Foi neste lado mais negro que olhei para ele e senti o qu o dif cil esfor armo nos e, mesmo assim, n o atingir aquilo que quer amos certo que a Lori tem uma agravante f sica, provocada por algu m que n o sabe o que amar uma crian a Tomaso, o rapaz irreverente, refugia se em mem rias e esperan as falsas para se ir mantendo tona Amor d i, e ele sabe isso t o bem que prefere que as pessoas n o gostem dele Contudo, ao mesmo tempo deixa se afundar nos bra os de Torey, deixa se amar por ela e por todos os outros meninos e d tamb m o seu amor, um rapaz interessante que, com a ajuda psicol gica certa, tem um caminho brilhante pela frente.Cl udia , tal com a Torey, a crian a que mais me preocupou ao longo da hist ria Vive no sil ncio e no num mundo muito dela Tem dificuldade em expressar aquilo que sente e necessidade de receber amor e afeto por parte dos outros Esta necessidade n o me pareceu bem expl cita Por m, ela vem de uma fam lia fria e rigorosa e ao primeiro sinal de amor ela segue e faz o que lhe pendem, porque entende que s assim a outra pessoa n o deixa de gostar dela.Por fim, temos um Boo, um menino autista que vive num mundo muito dele complicado conseguir tocar naquele espa o onde vive Mas as ferramentas de Torey e o seu tacto para lidar com as crian as e usar o amor no trabalho conseguem algumas leves conquistas Para ele, n s somos o mundo anormal e dif cil ele encontrar um lugar no nosso mundo onde ele se consiga encaixar Ele ir conseguir encontrar o seu lugar, mas dentro dele existir um espa o que s a ele pertence e n s somos t o limitados que muito dificilmente l chegaremos Torey lida com tudo isto de uma forma brilhante Ao longo do livros s o nos apresentados outros fatores que v o condicionando as decis es e o estado de esp rito da autora Essas pedras no caminho tornam na numa pessoa mais forte na sua fragilidade Vale a pena ler o livro Para quem trabalha com crian as um livro inspirador. 3.5 STARSAn autistic boy who doesn t speak A girl brain damaged by abuse who can t learn to read A boy who saw his stepmother murder his father and brother A pregnant twelve year old Torey Hayden takes on these very different children hoping to help them learn and improve their lives.Maybe I m being too harsh in my review, rating SOMEBODY ELSE S KIDS against today s standards, but I had a hard time embracing Torey Hayden s teachings as much as I did in ONE CHILD Published almost 40 years ago, the events in SOMEBODY ELSE S KIDS probably occurred a decade orbefore that I cringed when Hayden allowed eight year old Boo to disrobe and remain naked in classthan once and wondered why she kept one boy s suicide plan secret Another child expressed suicidal ideation and one who never did attempted suicide Hayden seems to believe she s the only one who can help the kids, sometimes to the exclusion of their parents She s a patient, creative teacher able to reach the most troubled kids I loved how she advocated for her students, wishing she could do so without alienating others in the school system On an emotional level, I get it My gut has wanted to overstep with clients on occasion, especially the needy ones who really needed a break Decisions need to be made in the short and long term interest of the kids Something the stress of immediate needs can overshadow good decision making She did her best and I think most students probably benefited in the long run We can t help everyone, no matter how much we want to.SOMEBODY ELSE S KIDS is a good addition for Hayden s fans. I read this book when I was in college, way back in the 80 s At the time I was studying to become a teacher and I wanted to soak up all the books about teaching that I could find This is an excellent book for anyone who loves children and thinks the world is a better place with them in it After reading ONE CHILD and GHOST GIRL, I went back to the bookstore to pick up all the rest of Torey L Hayden s books Her style of writing is so easy and engaging The characters in her stories are powerful and you are drawn to them all None of the characters have one side to them, Hayden lets us see that everyone has good and bad She is a truly gifted teacher and writer, and I am sure her works have sent many a young person in the direction of helping troubled youths and children I know that I have lent my set of books to my young friend who has since gone on to do child welfare in Inuvik, they affected her totally and completely, as they did myself. all hayden books get 4 stars from me bc they changed my life when i was in high school and made me want to be a psychologist to help kids like she did She is not meant to be a young adult writer. I think her books are meant for adults, so don t think it s a kiddy book just cuz I read em in high school I don t remember much about the writing they are all written in first person but the TRUE stories about the children who she has worked with are heartbreaking and inspiring Haven t read one of her books in YEARS, BUT if you are interested in child adolescent psychology, social work, special ed, child abuse, or if you think YOU VE had a bad day, READ THESE BOOKS. An honest, raw, and gripping true story of a special education teacher who caresabout her students than anything else in the world This is a deeply encouraging story although heartbreaking and somewhat abrasive in its authentic presentation Oddly enough, there is an underlying sexual theme running throughout the story as well I m not really sure how to word or explain that well enough for it to make sense That is something you ll have to read to understand I recommend this book to all teachers It was well worth my time. I read this book as a teen many times over and then re read it as a young adult It opened up my eyes on the different issues that my peers were dealing with when I read it as a teen and I was drawn in by the teacher Torey L Hayden who never gave up on the children It resonated with me and now, all these years later, I have worked many years in the field doing similar work I find the book raw, truthful and inspirational Well written and highly recommended. I read One Child by Hayden and immediately had to haveI soon owned the rest of the series and blew through them as well Hayden is a special ed teacher who works with the troubled kids and completely turns their world around giving them hope and something to live for. This book was instrumental in securing my drive and determination to help children in some way, when I grew up It was a remarkable look at teaching children with special needs, mostly behavioral and emotional needs Her patience, her approach, her attitude, all of it made a huge impact on me, and I ve carried many of her principles into the classroom today.
