Is A "Socially Awkward" Child More Prone to Becoming Bullied? Unfortunately, yes. Does it happen frequently? Again, unfortunately the answer is, yes. Not all children are talented at being social and outgoing. While just about any child is "fair game" to a bully... the child who has low self esteem, is shy, or has difficulty with social interaction, has a much higher chance of being targeted. Most parents feel almost helpless and aren't quite sure what

Many Adult Children of Alcoholics feel stuck, lost, afraid, resentful and frustrated by their circumstances. Because they were raised by inebriated, denial based caretakers--they were denied a healthy mirroring of Self-Love, Self-Appreciation, and Unconditional Love for Self.When your caretakers deny you the nurturing you deserve, you go through life feeling as if you are ill--wrong--broken--and stained. The wounds these feelings create are deep, and shatter a child's much needed sense of safety. The ability to trust Self is lost, as the child presumes the angst within--is something he/she deserves.
Future adult relationships all stem from the programmed dysfunctional perceptions of ones childhood. ACoA's often times attract into their experience partners who are very much like one of their caretakers. Because all beings attract what they know--even if what they know is dysfunctional--until a being becomes truly AWARE of that which is unconsciously driving all of their conscious decisions as adults--life cannot unfold happily.
Here we explore what it means to make that which is unconscious conscious--so to heighten our understanding and thus awareness of Self.
As awarness of self is expanded--so to is the love of self--for as one will ultimately learn here--we ACoA's were never not enough,we are not our pasts, nor our dysfuntional thoughts.

Because this is an attraction based universe, and becasue thoughts create things--we wounded adult children of alcoholics and adults from dysfunctional homes--may not be aware--that by the very nature of the universe--we are attracting what we know.
If all that we know--is the result of dysfunction--then how can we ever hope to attract healthy circumstances into our lives?
If the very core of our belief systems are dysfunctional--then all that we think must be a bit skewed.
If what we think is skewed--then what we attract will also be skewed--or at least--our perception of that which we are experiencing will be.
To take control of our adult lives--Jung says, "that until that which is unconscious is made conscious" we cannot truly ever be healed. If we do not know what is causing us to attract unhealthy circumstances and or people into our lives, how can we ever hope to live an abundant, joyful, fulfilling life?
Listen here as bestselling author, speaker and coach, Lisa A. Romano explains how adult children of alcoholics, and all wounded adult children from dysfunctional homes are simply the law of attraction in action--and how one can change their life around, simply by paying more attention to what one 'thinks'.
Cherishing Children Theme - "From Bullied to Brilliant – Discover Your Personal Power" with Karen Clarke of Powerful Positive People. Bullying is a problem and it needs attention. Up until now the focus has been on ‘stopping bullying’, ‘no more bullying’, ‘zero tolerance of bullying’ etc. This doesn’t and hasn’t worked. It is time for a new approach. Our book helps parents teach their children how to not only overcome bullying but to be inspired and energised by the experience. It is time to understand that it is only in the face of opposition that we truly get to demonstrate our value and worth. The world needs bullies so that people can see how valuable and powerful we are. It is time for a change and the time is now.
Cherishing Children Theme - The Power of Music for Children with Emma Creed of Sound Affects.
Even before a baby is born they can hear and respond to sound. Mummies will choose various music to listen to, to move to, to relax to during pregnancy and birth. New mums will then spend hours connecting with their baby with lullabies, rhymes, tickles, bounces and other songs, strengthening bonds and creating comfort and joy. They may even join a music group and allow their children to participate in music making with other littlies.
These formative years are very important and will not only lay a foundation for development but also a lifetime of loving music.
As children grow older they may become involved in more formal music education through school music lessons, joining choir or having private instrumental tuition.
Music is unique among the areas of study available to children. Music education offers a vehicle of self-expression, self-revelation, expression of the emotions, the education of the whole person and the education of creativity through aesthetic experiences where children are able to encounter a feeling of peer acceptance.
Music education is concerned with the total development of human lives and making a positive difference in the quality of human existence. It is an essential part of life!
In this interview Emma will discuss the importance of music for children and share musical ways in which we can support our children in their total development.
Women that use drugs often overlook the damage that they do to their children. They are too preoccupied to provide the next dose to their aching body. Is it right to treat this women as addicts? should these women be tried as felons that inflict heavy physiological abuse on children and impair their physical development? Children are neglected because of carelessness, they are abused by negligence.
What happen to the children after they have been removed from the families that brought them to this world, from the mothers that gave them birth and in some instances drugs? Is it all right to take children from these women? Is the foster system a good place for children? How do children perceive this changes in their lives?
This week we have invited Ana, she is a mother of 3 children that were taken away from a woman addicted to crack, and has been their primary care taker for the past 10 years. Ana has a first hand account of what goes on the lives of these children. Please join us to give this brave lady a warm welcome, Tuesday October 8 at 8 PST
What is bullying and why do bullies bully? Aggressive or dominating behavior is often displayed by teenagers and can continue over a lifetime in abusive relationships. Such a primitive psychological defense mechanism finds roots in an attempt to control disturbing feelings. Many times a bully is seeking power, especially if they did not receive a sense of security or empowerment at home. When parents or caregivers attempt control children by creating fear or shame, perhaps the smaller, more
World Cult Watch host Rob Robinson’s topic this week is about people who were born into and brought up in abusive cults or authoritative religious communities. He encourages people who have been abused by a religious entity to call in with stories. Make up a name if you wish or just use your first name … it’s not about exposing your privacy, but the experience you had so that others can learn from your experience, avoid getting into the same situation, or learn how to heal.
Rob runs the “World Cult Watch” website, offering insight and hard-hitting stories about the teachings of various abusive and authoritarian cults. His show is sponsored by God Discussion. Please visit God Discussion's At-A-Glance Calendar for a schedule of upcoming shows.

Was there a time in your life when you knew you could take care of yourself? Have we lost that stength of character to a system of control? Do we need a change in our education system?
Have the administrators in education messed-up the future for our country? Why do we need administrators? Do we instead need those who deliver the real value "education" to step up and teach our children how to properly use their minds instead of socially integrate and put random facts out-of-context into worthless knowledge?
How does a child learn? Do they need hands on, ears-on instead of touchy-feely stuff? Do you think children can work things out on their own without an authority in their lives?

Are your kids being Cyber Bullied?
Would you know if it was happening?
Do you know the sign?
Cyber bullying can be very damaging to adolescents and teens. It can lead to anxiety, depression, and even suicide. Also, once things are circulated on the Internet, they may never disappear, resurfacing at later times to renew the pain of cyber bullying.
Many cyber bullies think that bullying others online is funny. Cyber bullies may not realize the consequences for themselves of cyberbullying. Research suggests that between 20 - 30% of students will experience cyberbullying and between 10 - 20% of students will be a cyberbully at some point.
Cyber bullies and their parents may face legal charges for cyber bullying, and if the cyber bullying was sexual in nature or involved sexting, the results can include being registered as a sex offender.
Join us as we discuss cyber bullying, the signs, the impact and some solutions.
Thank you for the continued support.
