    Michelle Smith - Coming of Age on the Autism Spectrum

    in Family

    In this episode, we speak to the young women who is the focus of the award-winning documentary, Best and Most Beautiful Things.  
    In rural Maine, a bright and magnetic 20-year-old woman named Michelle Smith lives with her mother Julie. Legally blind and on the autism spectrum, Michelle defies labels as she chases big dreams with humor and bold curiosity. After graduating from Helen Keller’s alma mater, she finds herself unemployed and isolated. Searching for community, Michelle explores an uncensored world online and experiences a provocative sexual awakening. Her joyful story of self-discovery celebrates outcasts everywhere.
    From New York Times Review:
    What happens to children with serious disabilities when they reach adulthood? They disappear, at least as far as most of society is concerned. “Best and Most Beautiful Things” is a remarkably forthright documentary about a young woman in Maine, Michelle Smith, who rebels at the idea of becoming invisible and wants desperately to find a place in the grown-up world and to find herself in the process.
    Ms. Smith is legally blind and has Asperger’s syndrome. The filmmaker, Garrett Zevgetis, followed her over several years but focuses on the pivotal time when she is entering her 20s. It’s a difficult transition for someone with disabilities — the end of the schooling years, with their structure and relative safety.

    in Family

    Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss is not a lesbian. And she has no problem telling you that or about the reason her sexuality is a topic of discussion these days. It all comes down to one thing...Drama.
    I had so much fun talking to Kandi about the drama on her show and how she's not afraid to speak up if someone throws shade her way. This is her 8th season as a cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta. And if you don't know by now, she's more than just a housewife. She's a singer-songwriter, record producer, business woman and mom. She's also a former member of the girl group Xscape.

    John Rosemond - Parent Babble

    in Parents

     
    In the latest episode of School Struggles, we talk with John Rosemond about his book Parent Babble.   In Parent Babble, John takes on different "sacred cows," such as the "authority babble," and the "self-esteem babble."  A self-described "contrarian," John certainly goes against the parenting grain. Rosemond has worked with families, children, and parents since 1971 in the field of family psychology. In 1971, John earned his masters in psychology from Western Illinois University and was elected to the Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society. In 1999, his alma mater conferred upon John the Distinguished Alumni Award, given only once per year. Upon acceptance, he gave the commencement address.    Presently, his time is devoted to speaking and writing. John is syndicated in approximately 225 newspapers nationwide. He has written eleven best-selling parenting books. He is also one of America’s busiest and most popular speakers and most certainly the busiest and most popular in his field. He’s known for his sound advice, humor and easy, relaxed, engaging style.  In the past few years, John has appeared on numerous national television programs including 20/20, Good Morning America, The View, The Today Show, CNN, and CBS Later Today, as well as numerous print interviews.    All of his professional accomplishments aside, John is quick to remind folks that his real qualifications are that he’s been married to the same woman for over forty years, is the father of two successful adults, and the grandfather of seven children…make that seven well-behaved grandchildren
