    "The Clean Home vs The Dirty Home"

    in Parents

    It's been said that it's better to worry about your children more than a dirty home because you'll never get that time back. On the other hand, It's also been said that children need a clean, organized home and thrive in a structured environment...that a clean home can literally have a positive, physiological affect on parents.  We invite you to weigh in and vote on which you think is better and why!

The issues of parental rights and responsibilities have taken a turn, thus by, in hearing the pleas of parents of uncontrollable youths have another growing concern. Teenage boys getting girls pregnant and leading them into giving them money and all if government assisted aid that they receive to the (father of child) influential and sometimes abusive young men they have bore children. Theses young men are smooth talking, usually not reprimanded by parents or any adult supervision some nomadic and very charming. The argument of who is rearing the children is now debatable, but when it comes to financial responsibility the courts don't ask questions as to who will be prosecuted, penalized and even made to stand trial to the allegations of whatever law officials claim said youth committed. And surprising in homes amid the rich and the poor, kids are having babies and collecting state funded money and food stamps which actually is not even enough to raise a child in the current economic downgrade. Unemployment at a high for young black males in all cities arc roads the board, in California ranking 5 cities, are within the top ten of most unemployed in United States.

    Helping Kids Heal from the Rejection of an Absent Parent

    in Parents

    Raising children is a beautiful process that stretches and grows you in more ways than one. The journey involves spiritual, mental, and physical growth. Children bring to our lives a reflection of our inner selves. They show us our beliefs, our fears, and areas we can use some strength. The journey requires continuous support. Raising children alone can deplete the spirit of both the child and the parent raising the child. The child may have feelings of rejection and feel resentment toward the present parent and the absent parent. These feelings need to be expressed. So how do we allow children to vent in a way that is healthy without taking on feelings guilt as the parent that is around and active? Additionally, when the absent parent decides to return how do we allow the parent to return in a way that considers the child’s feelings and the longevity of the return? The wonderful Coach and Mediator Laura Richardson is returning to our show to share with us some practical tips and technique we can use to help us during the challenging strength building exercise of single parenthood.

    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.
