    Helping "Older" Companion Animals - And Exciting Announcement

    in Self Help

    The facts of life are that we are all getting "older" and that includes our companimals (companion animals.)  Some of us are buying into beliefs of what to expect with aging animals.  Yet there is a way to reverse those beliefs and help our companimals avoid some "aging" pitfalls that we thought were unavoidable.


    Are you worried about how to care for them and what may develop?  Maybe you've been told that because your cat, dog, horse, etc., is "older" that you should expect certain issues.  What if that doesn't have to be true?


    Join Susanne Peach, Animaleze® founder, as she discusses her groundbreaking work in helping animals live longer, happier, healthier lives.  She'll share success stories and offer suggestions and ideas that can change how we look at "aging" animals.   She has an almost 14-year-old Australian Shepherd mix dog who's been helping her become a pioneer in living and working with more "mature" animals.


    Susanne wants you to be a pioneer, as well.  Changing how everyone views "mature" animals, breaking all limitations, and preconceived notions of what's expected when your hamster, llama, parrot, etc., reach a certain age.


    If you have a younger companimal, tune in as you'll hear tips to help them, too.  


    (Some of the animals pictured here are 15 and 16.)


    Susanne is also going to be announcing some big news on some upcoming, first-time-ever events catered to you, the animal lover.

    Are Children Over Medicated? Gayani DeSilva M.D.

    in Women

    he California legislature is beginning to look at the way children are medicated with psychiatric medications. Some purport that prescribing practices are to blame—that psychiatrists are prescribing too many anti-psychotic medications which have significant and serious side effects to children, particularly in the foster care system. The practice of prescribing psychiatric medications to children is a direct result of the "presenting complaint" brought to the attention of the psychiatrist. The overuse or underuse of medication or inappropriate use of medication for foster children is a symptom of a much larger problem with the care of children in the foster care system.


    Dr. DeSilva has spent over 15 years as a Psychiatrist, specifically enhancing the mental health of children and adolescents. Much of her work consists of the complex array of needs with adolescent and young adult criminal and violent offenders to understand the interplay between mental illness, societal factors, and interpersonal issues. In this climate of horrific violence much of it perpetrated by adolescents and young adults in society today, she believes understanding the needs of children is crucial to preventing further tragic events. Dr. DeSilva believes not only must children with mental illness obtain the care they desperately need, it is vital adults participating in child rearing educate themselves about children's development and learn to communicate effectively with children and adolescents

    Incontrovertible Truths: Teaching our Children Their Confederate History

    in Moms and Family

    Living in the south, with all its charms, traditions and iconography does not offer access into certain aspects of her history, especially when that history involves discussions around the Civil War and the Confederacy. The inability to rake through the smoldering ashes of a war fought 150 years ago, allows for a one-sided narrative that sometimes misrepresents the causes for war, the people - enslaved and free - who lived through the war and and its aftermath. Although it is a necessary, and some might add, long overdue undertaking, it is also anxiety ridden, especially within the black community.


    How can parents of color approach this subject and explain to their children a war fought over, among other things, a system of that relegated their ancestors to permanent servitude?


    Today, the Mommy Chronicles is on site as the Alabama State University Department of History and Political Science explores those issues by examining the Civil War history at its first Confederate Memorial Day "Mini" Conference.

    Shattered Lives: Children and Grieving

    in School

    When children are victims of a disaster, a school shooting, or perhaps the loss of a classmate or someone close to them, we, as parents, teachers, or mental health professionals need to know how best to assist their grieving process.


    As the media reports on school shootings, deaths of children, and tragedy beyond comprehension, one comforting thought is there are trained professionals ready to step in during and after the crisis to help children deal with the loss.   


    Returning Shattered Lives Radio guest, Dr. David Schonfeld is tops in the field of child bereavement and now heads the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement (NCSCB) which "aims to help prepare professionals working in schools, health care settings, and other community sites to be better prepared to meet children’s needs during and after crisis and loss."
