    A healthy parent child relationship also improves academic success, helps to prevent risky behaviror and reduces likelihood teen pregnancy. According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancies, "Teens say parents most influence their decisions about sex and 87% say it would be much easier for them to postpone sex and avoid teen pregnancy if they were able to have more open, honest conversations about these topics with their parents."

  • A Predator In Your Family?

    in Family

    Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey, continue the tough discussion on predators looking to exploit and sexually abuse our children, specifically predators in the child’s own family committing “incest”.  On our last show, we talked about the recent horrendous reports of children being abused and exploited by those in authority; teachers, coaches, priests, Scout leaders, even police officers.  Today we are going to talk about how more than half of all children who are sexually abused are abused by a parent or other relative.  Incest, or “familial abuse” is occurring at an increasingly shocking rate more than most people could imagine. Families have become experts at keeping such secrets. Join us to discuss how to recognize the signs of incest, how to protect our children, and how to help those who have been abused come forward.  A predator may be living in your home and it’s time that you know.

  • The Science of Happiness with guest Chris Neistroy the father of a Survivor

    in Family

    My name is Lori Purdy Faitel and I am a Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor. And I am your host for THE SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS.I suffered a TBI many years ago, when I was 24 years old. As I speak to you tonight I am 52 years old and very happy to share my age. Like many of us survivors after the TBI I was clinically dead 3 times so…. it is proper to tell that I almost did not live to be 25, which makes being over 50 a blessing!
    Back in the day, everything in my life was a dream come true. I was almost 25 years old,   had a recent promotion in business that inspired me with dreams for my future, I was attending college at night, I had recently moved out of my parents home for the first time, I had many friends and I was on the fast track to a future with the man I had been in love with for about 5 years. THEN on a beautiful sunny spring morning as I drove on the freeway to my job a construction truck dropped bales of hay onto my windshield causing me to lose control of my car, spinning off the road and into cement construction material. From  that point forward my dreams were taken away. I was diagnosed with a TBI, in a mild coma for 7 days and it took about 6 years of therapy and extensive study before I was able to function like an adult again. I understand that the world is not filled with happiness; But for an hour or so lets concentrate on things that help to create happiness.
    My guest Wednesday night will be  Chris Neistroy. A few years ago I was promoting The Book I wrote "Am I Brain Damaged?" at a local Networking club that is where  I met Chris. He is the father of a young woman who suffered Brain Injury. He has positive and happy things to tell of how her life is moving forward. Hopefully ,The Lady I am referring to Chrysa, Chris's daugther will join the show also.  Listen to Wednesday nite 8PM Eastern Standard Time to "The Joy of Happiness"

  • Philosophical Perspectives

Always, His view is a “grace” view. And as always, His view is the best view. Join with us in a discussion forum of life-enriching topics that will help us to create philosopohical perspecives according to a grace view. Indeed it is true, a better you begins with a grace view of God!

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.
