  • Chew The Phat Kewl Khat: Topic... Stay at Home Moms, Grand Moms or Day Care?

    in Moms and Family

    Stay-at-Home Moms vs. Working Moms
    Making the decision to stay home with your kids or join the workforce can be a difficult process. There is no right answer. Dr. Phil encourages each woman to make the choice that brings her closest to fulfilling her hopes and dreams.  "It is damaging for parents to be away for more than a few hours a day," says Heidi Brennan, a stay-at-home mom, public policy advisor, and member of the Board of Directors for the Family and Home Network. "Research has demonstrated that the early relationship between infants and preschoolers is the foundation of all subsequent personality development." "There is really no evidence to support that statement," Dr. Phil argues. "Children who are in quality day care have increases in cognitive skills, intellect, social skills and social comfort," he says.

  • Against all odds a father who refused to give up on his son's survival.

    in Parents

    Barry Milazzoa father who refused to give up on his son, though the odds were against his survival. His new book: All the King’s Horses – Finding Purpose and Hope in Brokenness and Impossibility will inspire you. The story revolves around his son, who suffered a profound brain injury at eight months old, and was predicted never to walk or speak, and to be educable to only very rudimentary levels. His son walked at ten years old, and his life has seen miracle after miracle. I still tie his shoes daily, cut up his food (his toenails ... you name it ... his care is a totally hands-on operation - all my privilege as his dad). He speaks just fine, although at 29 years old you'd realize in five seconds of conversation that he will remain a child for life ... At the same time, he has decided that he will marry Mila Kunis ... God certainly does seem to have a sense of humor. This book will make you laugh, and it will make you cry. More important, this true story will strengthen many to persevere against the impossibility that will come against your own family through the years. Thank you for taking a look on Amazon. You will be glad you did. Barry Milazzo http://amzn.com/1629984191

  • Susan Hamilton Animal Therapy

    in Pets

    Susan Hamilton utilizes Animal Communication and Energy Healing using Healing Touch for animals among other techniques such as - Animal Communication, Healing Touch for Animals, Nutritional consulting, Accupressure, Kinesiology, Scalar Wave and Reiki.
    Susan has over 40 years experience in dealing with animals from German Shepherds to Great Danes and Thoroughbreds to Quarter Horses. She has always had an “intuitive” feel for her animals and often seemed to just “know” things about them. Susan belonged to the Gold Creek Cavalry where she and her horse participated in drills, parades camp outs and trail rides. She later showed horses on the “A” Hunter/Jumper circuit in the Adult Amateur and Amateur Owner divisions.. Riding with such luminaries as Brad Laird and John Bauman. She has also successfully shown German Shepherd dogs in the confirmation show ring.
    She began this particular journey when she lost her mare to laminitis.a very painful disease of the hoof. Another of her horses was misdiagnosed with Insulin Resistance much like diabetes in humans Over the next few years and many unproductive vet bills, it was discovered that he did not have this disease at all. Having him on a good nutritious diet, lots of turnout, proper exercise, body and energy work were the keys to keeping him healthy and happy. Susan was drawn to learning much more about nutrition both for animals and people.
    Throughout her life, Susan has never been without an animal of some sort. At one point she owned 12 horses. Working in the painting and construction industry was the means of supporting all her animals. Susan is finally realizing her lifelong dream of being able to work directly with animals in a wonderful and unique way. 

About Family

Like the TV show, modern families come in all shapes and sizes. Many children are a product of divorce, are in touch with both their biological and adopted parents, have two moms or two dads (or both), or are being raised by their grandparents. No matter how atypical the face of today's family, the values stay the same: love and support. Moms and dads will find plenty of support in BlogTalkRadio's parenting shows, especially those about time-management topics that fit both stay-at-home and working parents: organizing kids' activity schedules, decluttering, reducing the workweek, managing stress, making quick meals and more. We've also got shows about friendship – you know, your family of choice rather than family of origin. Just remember: everyone's family seems dysfunctional in its own way. And family may irritate you, but more often than not, you can always count on family to pick you up from the airport.
