    The Gift Our Children Possess ..... From A Parent's Perspective

    in Parents

    Does sports have the only gift our children benefit from?  Student-athletes at the Division II level are a unique population that face added stress outside of the norm compared to their non-athlete counterparts. Many student-athletes often struggle when attempting to juggle their commitment and desire to excel in their sport of play with the ability to succeed in the classroom. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) has placed a large emphasis on student-athlete academics by putting such rules as the Progress-Towards-Degree in place. This rule ensures student-athletes are moving towards graduation during their time as a student-athlete.  With rules such as the Progress-Towards-Degree Universities have employed compliance coordinators whose job is to make sure all student-athletes at their University comply with NCAA ruling to remain eligible for play.
    Join us for this SPECIAL episode as we host our guest from the "Gifted" children's community.  I believe you want to listen in on this conversation as our guest has some valuable tools she will share with everyone on how we can best support and guide our "Gifted & Talented" student/athletes.

    Wicked Insurance Matters Radio Show w/Greg Durette - The End of Retirement

    in Parents

    As Malcolm Forbes once said, “Retirement kills more people than hard work ever did.”  Hard to argue that one.  Although, at the risk of sounding like I am cheating the grim reaper, it seems as though more folks than ever are watching their opportunity to retire slip away.  It’s true.
    Folks have succumbed in ever increasing numbers to the notion that having an abundance of things is far more important than saving for the future.  Not to mention what those things cost nowadays.  Hence, retirement is becoming less of a realistic goal for more and more Americans every year.
    It’s time to take a stand and tempt fate by setting yourself up for a good, long retirement.
    No more:
    Market drops wiping out a lifetime of saving Watching 401k’s erode before you very eyes Outliving the money you worked so hard to save Lack of information leading to bad decisions Listen and I will lay out a plan for everyone to beat the odds and actually get set up for long term prosperity. Let's do retirement right!
    Happy New Year!

    Challenging the Rhetoric Special Series - A Sickness of Silence PT 1

    in Parents

    The culture of silence lives on in every generation molding each like the one that came before it. Silence enables abuse, but our words have always held the power to stop it. It is our inability to listen to and share uncomfortable truths that have allowed families to maintain their semblance of normalcy at — not for, the sake of the child.
    Join SOS childhood sexual abuse survivors, Cheri Roberts & Kim Lakin, LIVE on Challenging the Rhetoric for a special ongoing series, “A Sickness of Silence”. These 2-hour round-table discussions will feature both male and female victims, leading experts and even the pedophiles themselves.
    Each show is designed to help break the cycle and secrets of unwholesome family traditions.
    SOS is not about shaming, blaming or naming … SOS is about sharing solutions that work and working together in order to save a child.
    Every show is immediately archived after the live broadcast for listening and sharing convenience. We ask that you do not keep our secret and instead please share our links widely.

    Beyond Codependency

    in Parents

    Do you know the actual definition of codependent? No? That’s okay, because no one does. It’s a term that was created by treatment professionals in the 80’s. In the early 80’s when treatment centers became overrun with people abusing and addicted to alcohol and drugs, clinicians attempted to lump them all together and find one label to cover the myriad of phases of addiction their clients were showing up in (read: diagnoses were becoming more and more difficult to make, and were often wrong). This led to a change in the terminology from “alcoholism” and “addicted” to “chemical dependency”. On tonight's podcast we'll discuss where the term "codependent" came from, and whether or not it actually applies to you.
