    Urban Therapy with Sun #138 Treating Them Like They're Grown

    in Lifestyle

    What are the consequences to encouraging or allowing your kids to do things before they're old enough to understand them or process them?
    Is growing up your kids too early a way of taking away their innocence? Do we live out our fantasies through our children sometimes? Is it right for us to do that? Do we set our kids up for trouble by letting them experience things that we may have had to wait to experience when we were their ages? What about when we let them experience things that we did experience at their ages even though it got us into trouble at their ages?


    In your opinion, what is the right age to let your kids:


    Drink alcohol
    Smoke weed or experiment with drugs
    Wear makeup
    Get into a serious relationship
    Date
    Have sex
    Get on birth control
    Travel on their own
    Drive a car
    Experiment with weapons
    Manage their own money
    Stay home alone
    Wear high heels
    Purchase things for a girlfriend or a boyfriend
    Get a job
    Babysit
    Hang around with teenaged parents
    Etc


    Do we allow our kids to grow and learn independently or do we navigate them through their young lives and and keep them safe?

    Urban Therapy with Sun #137 Father's Day, Father's Way 2015

    in Lifestyle

    The time has come for fathers and men in general to be represent and to be represented. Far too often, we forget the importance of the positive male presence in the home and/or in our lives. Sure, we know that their are plenty of deadbeat dads and absentee dads that have had a negative effect on plenty of children's lives out there but why should they always have the spotlight more than the good dads and the good men that have fought tooth and nail to ensure a good life for their children and their families? That's unacceptable but don't get me wrong, this won't be a goody goody daddy two shoes show. For those that feel the need to downplay the significance of fathers and the male influence in our lives, we invite y'all to bring your valid and invalid sour grapes gripes to the forefront too. Everyone's feelings and experiences will be welcomed and represented. Fair is fair.


    We need men to come out and represent on this show. If you are a dad and/or you have been a father to a child that was not your biological child and was instrumental to their growth and development, we need to hear from you on this show.


    If you're a dad that has been estranged from your children for any reason and you would like to get it off of your chest, this is your show. No excuses this time. No baby mama excuses, child support excuses, incarceration excuses, age excuses or anything. Now is the time to represent and try to get right. Tell your story. Fix your story.


    There is no crying in fatherhood. Well, sometimes there is but I'm saying.

    THE FUNKY RHYTHM CONNECTION feat DONALD GRAMMER

    in Music

            Funky beats, a rhythm that will keep you moving and meditating.  One of the better CONNECTIONS you're find on the Internet.  Donald Grammer cuts, blends, mixes jazz fusion, like no one else.  Music is the universal language.  When you have a great song on, it can mood you, and entice.  Close your eyes and hear new concepts and realisms with notes jumping off the graph.  Half notes, quarter notes, hip hop, R&B, fused with jazz and a spectrum of melody you won't forget.  Donald Grammer and a little bit of me, Tolliver.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #135 Lose Weight And Get Healthy Or Bust

    in Health

    Who doesn't want to get their weight to a manageable level and stop getting sick all the time? Who doesn't want to look great in their clothes and receive compliments wherever they go?
    Who likes to spend hours in the mirror obsessing about what to wear and how it really looks to others?
    Who doesn't want to wipe their minds free of insecurity and self-doubt?
    Would you agree that most people want to eat the right things? Why do people really make excuses for eating a lot of unhealthy and non-nutritional foods? Is it simply because they taste good or is there a deeper reason at work?
    Is it true that some people are too embarrassed to workout in front of others so they either just keep living in an unhealthy way or they try more dangerous weight loss methods so they can look good enough to go to the gym?
    Are there support groups for that? Is there help? What kind of help is there available?
    This Wednesday we will have Linda Smith of Linda's Vegetarian Village (6381 Germantown Ave Phila, PA 19144) on hand to assist us with some great information about Healthy and tasty vegan meals, healing herbs and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and how it can be achieved without sacrificing taste or time.


    Make sure you check this show out. Your life could depend on it and it does.

    FUNKY RHYTHM CONNECTION with DONALD GRAMMER/LYNN TOLLIVER JR

    in Music

            It's all in a day's work for Donald Grammer, something he holds passionately close to what he likes to do.  They call these guys, musicologists.  Some people specialize in love, some specialize in money, some go for the gold, or stocks, some glide around spiritual - Donald puts his focus on putting together the great blends, mixed like a real good salad, one that tastes unbelievable, full of nutrition, AND you're going to keep that waistline in tact, too.  This music is something else.

    Urban Therapy with Sun #134 Make Up Sex Fightin' And F******

    in Lifestyle

    Make up sex. What exactly is it? What's it to you?


    Is it a good thing? A bad thing? Something that all couples do? Something that has become more popular in the media in recent years? Is it safe? Is it dangerous? Is it something that makes up for an argument? Does it end with just an argument or disagreement or is violence sometimes what's being made up for?


    Are there people who actually start arguments or fights in order to initiate make up sex? Would someone do that?


    Is the sexual energy that comes after an argument healthy? Can it be unhealthy?


    Is make up sex really just a cover up for domestic violence?


    If you like make up sex but the person that you're with doesn't like it or understand it, how will that work? Can that work?


    Do most people who engage in make up sex usually know what they are getting into or does it get introduced to some people at the most inopportune times? Can you learn to like it and if so what does that say about a person?


    Boy are we gonna get into this one. The question is how will we get out of this one? LOL
