Validate, Join and Distract


One effective method for managing a difficult or annoying behavior is to validate, join and distract. For example, if your loved one constantly heads to the door asking to go home, efforts to try to distract him may not work. By simply interrupting the behavior, you don't gain an understanding of why the behavior is occurring.

A more effective approach is to try to validate the emotion that you think is underlying the behavior. For example, say something like, "I know you miss your family." Then sit down and look through family photo albums. This way, you haven't just distracted the person but you've first joined in and validated the person's emotions. Validating, joining and then using distraction may be most effective with people who are in the early to middle stages of the disease.

Why is this thread titled rewriting history?

Unfortunately, having a statue of Jackson is terribly insensitive considering his position on slavery. Today, should we honor such men? I seriously don't think so. Deciding someone who promoted slavery should not be honored, is not rewriting history. No one is trying to write that history differently, but they are saying that history is not honorable, and surely it is not.

Slavery - Andrew Jackson - policy, election, second

The Jackson administration's handling of this controversy has generally been interpreted as evidence of its southern orientation. According to one account, the Democratic party's pro-South and pro-slavery bias was the "darker side to Jacksonian Democracy." The Jackson administration certainly was hostile to abolitionism and any efforts to disturb the South's "peculiar institution." It showed a continuing solicitude for southern opinion and interests, and it embraced the racial tenets of "herrenvolk democracy," which affirmed the equality of whites and their superiority over non-whites. Jackson himself was a substantial planter, owning many slaves, and while he insisted that they be treated "humanely," he showed no disposition to disturb the legal and constitutional arrangements that maintained the slave system. Yet Jackson's position on the slavery issue was more complex than this.

It is re-writing history. It is looking at history through presentism. That is re-writing history.

Why not tear down every reference and monument to a president in Washington DC? Every single president of the United States said or did something to trigger some uneducated snowflake today.
