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'.

Michael De Rosa is a disability advocate, and the strength of his advocacy is God’s love for him through Christ.
Because of who God created him to be, he easily sees the proverbial glass as always half full. As an advocate for the disabled, he wants them to see their value and then be able to communicate this to others.
At birth, he had a very serious speech impediment. Because of what he has learned and because of where he has come from, he identifies with the disabled population, wanting for them what he has found, namely hope beyond disability.
He currently leads a discipleship class at his local church whereby he has the blessed responsibility to help others understand a little better what it means to follow Christ.
Join us as he shares his journey with Jesus, his hope for healing -- and how to dismantle disabilities!

Better Understanding Disabilities is a nonprofit organization of compassionate, comprehensive, qualified professionals who work to educate parents to improve the lives of children with learning disabilities. When a child is first identified as a student in need of services, many parents have no knowledge of the process until they receive a parent handbook during an individualize education plan (IEP) meeting. The parent handbook is often written in a language unfamiliar to most parents. Parents are often overwhelmed by this meeting because it is not like a familiar parent-teacher conference. The meeting includes many educational professionals (administrator, teacher, therapists, counselor, psychologist, etc.
BUD was established in 2012 to advocate for and empower parents to seek the necessary services for their children upon initial identification of a learning disability. Annette Says BUD is uniquely qualified to assist and inform parents because for over 20 years I have been involved with the special education maze both as a parent and a teacher.
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?

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.
