Parenting is really hard, but it's especially hard if you're the parent of a child with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. There's so much advice being thrown your way, a lot of it telling you to be more firm, more consistent, and more diligent with the rewards and punishments. If all those sticker charts, time-outs, screaming matches, arguments have you feeling like a lot of parents do -- isolated, frustrated, and desperate -- well, you've found a program that can help. On this program, Dr. Ross Greene -- author of The Explosive Child and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach -- helps parents understand challenging behavior and overcome many of the hurdles involved in implementing his model. It's very hard work...and this is a great opportunity to call in, ask questions, get the support you need, and or just listen to other parents or relatives who are dealing with similar real-life issues. The program airs every Monday at 11 am Eastern time from September through May. Sponsored by Dr. Greene's non-profit, Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org).

You name it; we are going to talk about it this week! Today’s show will cover everything from food allergies (did you know that over 55% of North Americans test positive to allergies?)and heavy metal toxicity to bio-identical hormones and homeopathy. I will be discussing this and so much more with Beverly Hills MD, Cathie-Ann Lippman who has been practicing environmental and preventive medicine for almost 30 years and who was a medical resource for Suzanne Somers last bestselling book Ageless. This interview is going to be jam packed with information on how you can stay healthy in a challenging world. Have your pen and paper ready!
Dr. Cathie Lippman has practiced Environmental and Preventive Medicine in Beverly Hills for 20 years. Environmental Medicine regards illness as possibly being a result of sensitivities to foods or chemicals or some other aspect of the environment. Dr. Lippman received her M.D. in 1973 from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. After a pediatric internship at LA County-USC Medical Center, she studied Adult and Child Psychiatry at UCLA and was Board Certified in each specialty in 1980. Dr. Lippman became dissatisfied with the limitations of a purely psychiatric focus. She changed her practice from psychiatry to natural alternative medicine in order to address the whole individual. She wants people to feel empowered to do as much as they can for themselves in a safe manner and believes in educating her patients and explaining what is important for their well-being.

How do we do a better job of understanding and helping students with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges in our schools...while simultaneously feeling like we're "holding kids accountable"...while attending to the diverse needs of other students...while trying to make sure they all do well on high-stakes testing? Not by simply increasing detentions, suspensions, and expulsions or referring behaviorally challenging kids into the judicial system! In this program, Dr. Ross Greene -- author of The Explosive Child and Lost at School, and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach -- helps you view challenging behavior in a more compassionate, accurate, productive manner and intervene more effectively. If you want to learn more about his model, have questions about how to get the ball rolling on using the model in your building or classroom, or are having difficulty using the model with a particular student, this is your opportunity to get your questions answered and listen to how other educators are overcoming obstacles and aplying the model. You can join in live -- the program airs every Monday at 3:00 pm Eastern time -- or listen to archives of past programs.
Join me on Sunday, May 13, 2013 from 8:00 pm to 8:30 pm for my discussion about the validity of Year Round School Calendars and Traditional School Calendars and the impact if any on student achievement. School districts around the country have begun to re-examine the benefits and challenges of extending school days and the school year. In Washington DC, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and schools chancellor Kaya Henderson are considering expanding the school day and school year as an attempt to improve overall test scores and increase graduation rates. Currently the school week for students attending the District of Columbia Public Schools consist of 30 hours, which according to Mayor Gray is simply no longer enough time. Many champions of the extended school day and year believe adding more time will increase the ability of American students to compete with their global peers. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a chief proponent of the longer school year, says American students have fallen behind the world academically.
However, there are those who do not support an extended school day or school and suggest there is little to no evidence that support an improvement in academic performance. “Opponents of extended school point out that states such as Minnesota and Massachusetts steadily shine on standardized achievement tests while preserving their summer break with a post-Labor Day school start” (Julie Carr Smyth (2013). Join me on Sunday, May 12, 2013 on Parent Talk Live, home of important educational discussions germane to parents and their communities. My guest will be Tina Bruno.
Tina Bruno is the executive director of the national advocacy organization, The Coalition for a Traditional School Calendar. Under her direction the cry of parents for a longer summer vacation has become a national issue and many states have enjoyed the passage of school start date legislation.

Join Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live, Friday, May 24, 2013 for a discussion on the importance of summer reading with his guest, Victoria Baker, Director of Community and District-wide Partnerships Scholastic Classroom and Community Group.
In a 2009 government web cast, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan described summer learning loss as “devastating.” This is what researchers have often referred to as the “summer slide.” It is estimated that school summer breaks will cause the average student to lose up to one month of instruction, with disadvantaged students being disproportionately affected (Cooper, 1996).
Researchers conclude that two-thirds of the 9th grade reading achievement gap can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities during the elementary school years, with nearly one-third of the gap present when children begin school (Alexander, Entwistle & Olsen, 2007). The body of existing research demonstrates the critical importance that the early development of summer reading habits can play in providing the foundation for later success. Summer learning research can be broadly categorized under the following themes:
The impact of summer learning loss on disadvantaged youth Access to books and time devoted to reading The importance of successful reading experiences The impact of innovative summer reading programs
