Step families get a bad rap. There's the evil stepmother or the bad step father. With the divorce rate at 50% it is likely people remarry and become blended families. If you are not a part of a blended family, you most likely know someone who is. It's not easy to create one. There are alliances, hurt feelings, and feelings of betrayal along the way. Blended families are able to succeed. To recognize this, September 16th, is National Step Family Day.
Today my guest is therapist Kellye Laughery who works at the Center For Family Unity and specializes in helping step families become blended famiilies.
I am going to address what Mindfulness is, the benefits to children and families, and how to teach children to be mindful. Mindfulness is also called awareness, being present, being in the now, or being grateful. It's about self regulation and being in control of your body.
Welcome everyone to Blog Talk Radio and Youth Speak. It's my pleasure to have on the program today Tzaddik Kawano, 6 years of age, who just created an amazing meditation for children. (see link below)
Tzaddik uses meditation to help him focus and work on his feelings. He listens to guided meditations with his mom, but had never heard created by a child, so he decided to create on. He has only done one so far, but is working on creating more.
Tzaddik is a 1st grader this year. His favorite subject at school is science. He likes turtles, going to Lake Michigan, and eating pizza with his brothers. He has completed four 5k races so far and is doing the next one in October. Each 5k race helps to raise money to help other kids live better lives.
Tune in for this interview with Tzaddik to learn the story behind the making of this tape, which was completely his idea!

Welcome to Blog Talk Radio and Youth Speak. I'm Sharon Ann Wikoff and delighted to be here hosting Day 6 in the debuting of Youth Speak. And to make it even more special I'm doing this show with Jyude Albright.
Jyude and I have done many shows together on the Voice of Change Radio Program. In addition, she co-hosts her own show here at Blog talk Radio called Awareness Changes Truth.
Today, we will be talking in general about the dedication and commitment of a parent or other adult who supports and nurtures children to step forward and really shine. As I began researching about children and youth making a difference in the world, I was astonished to learn that very young children, like 4, 5 and 6 years of age are doing remarkable things!
One child, a four year old boy reached out and gave his birthday gift of $ 20 bill to a homeless man and when he was five founded his own organization to help the homeless! And just this week, I received a remarkable meditation tape made by a 6 year old to help children have a good first day at school! And after reading about these extraordinary children....I knew that behind EACH one... was that special parent or special adult who listened, supported and nurtured those children.
So, today we are going to be talking about such parents and what they do to nourish children in a way that allows them to bring forth their unique passions and shine at such a young age.

She educates the public about how these toxic chemicals have impacted our health and what we can do about it. Alice is the author of Poisoned for Profit: The Toxic Assault on our Children, which she co-authored with her husband, Philip. The Shabecoffs reveal that the children of baby boomers—the first to be raised in a truly "toxified" world—have higher rates of birth defects, asthma, cancer, autism and a frightening range of other neurological illnesses from ADHD to mental retardation and other serious chronic illnesses, than previous generations. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer, talks to Alice Shabecoff to discuss her book, Poisoned for Profit: The Toxic Assault on our Children. If you would like to learn what you can do to protect yourself and your children from these toxic assaults, stay tuned!

Welcome to Youth Speak. As I was reflecting on the stories that have been shared this week on Youth Speak, I had a flashback. Many years ago, my niece introduced me to the book called the Indigo Children written by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober. As I glanced through, I knew that these were the children that formed 25% of my first grade class at that time. These children were characterized as those that were here to "break up" the "systems" that were in place at that time, which were not working for the good of all, such as the educational system, health system and political system. In the classroom, they were the children that wanted to be part of the solution to any problem that came up in the classroom. They did not respond well when strict rules attempted to be enforced upon them. After the Indigo Children, the Crystal Children appeared. These children were characterized as having magnetic personalities, highly affectionate and very much connected to animals, nature and sensitivity to the feelings of people.
SO my question is, "Are the amazing acts we are witnessing by extraordinary children today, the results of these Indigo and Crystal children, living life?" AND "What are these children showing us, about how to live?" Is there a lesson for all of us here? These are some of the questions we'll play with today on Youth Speak! Join us. Call in and share your views!
