    Voices InJustice - Emotional or Verbal Abuse - Is this a societal abuse?

    in Current Events

    Welcome to Voices InJustice, a continuing outreach program of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. We are here to share your public voice, without sharing your identity. You are able to share your thoughts by calling in live at 929-477-3163 or by loging into blogtalkradio.com with your Social ID and join the live chatroom. Sunday, Oct 11th, 7pm eastern/6pm central/4pm pacific time we are discussing the influence of Emotional and/or Verbal abuse. 


    TELL ME - Which would you find more influential in changing our behaviors; Is it what we constantly hear others say about us? Is it degrading words society uses to describe persons whom they don't even know? Is it what our children hear in the comments and condemnation from their parents or other kids at school? The key is that Emotional or Verbal Abuse can happen anytime, by anyone, it is how we pass judgement on others because of their lifestyle choice or certain ways they act. It is the comments by parents calling their child stupid, rather than saying, 'that was a stupid action, but you can do better'. Emotional & Verbal abuse is usually at it's worst in a dominating relationship; one your teen just might be tolerating to date the most popular person in school. It is something we think nothing about in our comments about the person or the family down the street, and it is what ends up being the constant bullying your child might be inflicting on others because its the only way people at home ever talk about them. This is a personally destructive abuse that targets how we see ourselves, the feeling of being worthy.


    Tonight we discuss how we teach our kids to see our society and how they will handle social/personal relationships. Join us live for open discussion to share any experiences or comments, because we definitely VALUE YOUR VOICE. Our shows are strictly for open discussion entertainment only. Thank you

There are so many dangers in today's prescription drugs. The strength & addictive nature of these drugs, the high cost, the risk of our kids sneaking them, the street dollar value, the risk of your medical professional not paying attention to the multiple of drugs you or a person you care for might be taking, or how those drugs might effect/counter-effect one another; these are just some of the first things that come up.

    Voices InJustice - Teen Pregnancy, becoming young parents or playing house

    in Current Events

    -Voices InJustice with host Trish McKnight; Sept 13th @ 6pm eastern/5pm central/3pm pacific time. Join me for another great broadcast discussion brought to you by, Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery community outreach broadcast radio. Our call in number 929-477-3163, open chatroom & online discussion. 


    Over the last two decades teen pregnancy has declined greatly due to oral contraception and education, along with a more open dialogue with parents. However, there is still on average 26.5/per 1000. There is a huge variation in race, state of residence (with southern states being most prominent). If your teen had an early pregnancy do you know what services are available to help them? What about housing, income, education, and ability to provide a sustaining safe life for their children? 


    There are many issues surrounding Teen Pregnancy, and tonight we are talking about this still hot topic. If you are grandparents to an early teen pregnancy, if you're a friend to someone who had an early teen pregnancy, someone who has more than one child in their teen years; these are all topics open for our phone lines. We do hope you'll join this conversation. Do we discuss openly about contraception, the use of condoms for disease prevention, and the ongoing support needed for these children, as well as the education & steady work, rather than welfare. Do our teens really know what they're getting into with sexual relationships? Are they prepared for the consequences of their actions? Are you finding as grandparents you are providing key early support & assistance for these children? Do you have open dialogue about sex & protection with your children?


    These shows are for informative purposes & discussions, they are not intended as any form of legal, medical, or therapeutic advice. Join in w/ Trish about InJustices every Sunday

    Voices InJustice - Giving praise to our Veterans - Warriors for Freedom

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice honoring our Veterans.... Sunday beginning at 7pm eastern time, please join in with Trish as we give praise to the warriors who protect us everyday. We depend on our Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom to seek happiness & live our daily life without threat; we would not enjoy any of this without the soldiers who defend us everyday.


    I've been a military wife, moved half way around the world and gave birth to two children while tour in the U.K., it is difficult being a new parent when you have family around you, even more challenging when your spouse is a soldier getting stationed some place new every three or four years and trying to settle your children into a new place on a regular basis. When we left the U.K. and went to Netherlands, it was right at the Grenada battle and the Dutch Marines strip searched me & my babies as we entered the airport customs. It was a terrifying 12mons over there where we couldn't speak the language or communicate with our families. This is a sacrifice that millions of Military Families give to protect our daily freedom. Tonight we invite anyone who would like to praise their special soldier, share a story, share your tour time and the battles that have caused so many to suffer with injury, loss of life, and the haunting triggers of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Think of what they have been through and how long their tour in battle to make sure no harm comes to American soil.


    Marines, Navy, Air Force, Army our respect for all you give to our country everyday. This show is in your honor. Thank you all for your service and your families for the sacrifice they suffer with you. 


    Our phones & chatroom will be open and we hope many will join this show. We are for entertainment and outreach support as part of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. Thank you for supporting us

    Voices InJustice Radio - Medical and Behavioral Treatment for Your Children/Teen

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice Radio with Trish McKnight; Owner/CEO Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery; Creator 'Family Crimes & Terroristic Abuse Act'; Author 'My Justice', as well as a mentor who has assisted or supported hundreds of men & women trying to work through trauma, grief, depression. You can join her broadcast live this Sunday - Aug 30, 9pm central time; as always this broadcast is a continuation of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery community outreach broadcasting network. We are here to share your side of the story. We open our phone lines at 929-477-3163 and our chatroom is always a busy place to share with other listeners. Join in this very important program as we discuss Medical Treatments & Medications for your child/teen. Are you ready to be your child's medical advocate?


    Almost weekly there is a new FDA approved regulation for a even more powerful medication being approved for children. On this topic I have a some very serious concerns. They have now approved Medical Marijuana for children; Oxycotin and many other opioid medications for pain treatment. They approve many benzodiazoprine medications to reduce behavioral issues. Is our healthcare system really researching all the underlying issues that could be affecting the child's condition or behavioral problems? Do you dissway them from discussing certain family related topics or are you completely honest about the daily functions of your child's home life? Is there underlying stress, constant negative chaos or arguing, violent threats, bullying by a parent or parental partner? 


    Your side of the story matters in this broadcast. Join callers & chatters as we open the discussion concerning medications & medical treatment for their child/teen. We are an entertainment & awareness program; we do not provide any professional, legal, medical, or therapeutic advice


     

  • Voices InJustice Radio - School is back in session - Education in America

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice Radio with Trish McKnight; Sharing your side of the story!! This is a community outreach broadcast of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery. Sunday night, 9pm central time; join me friends as we discuss the issues of our nation's educational systems. Do you feel your child is SAFE at school? Is bullying a new concern as they progress in grades? Do you worry about teachers abusing or sexually approaching your child? Are they learning enough to help them succeed? What about racial issues, free meals, equal education for all children? Let's bring your concerns to the table; open the phone lines, and get our chatroom going with your thoughts about the good & bad of your child's school environment.


    On this special broadcast we want to know; what concerns you as they return to school? Today we have many issues in our school system. Required testing which many believe only checks the teacher's ability to educate our children, but it doesn't exactly show how or what our children are learning. Everyday they face challenges of bullying, drugs, violence and gangs. As parents we try to give them guidance and pray nothing distracts them from a healthy life building experience. We must realize that a child's challenges in our modern day society are nothing compared to any other generation. Parents & teens let's talk about your concerns, connecting as a united society to discuss how our school systems work across the country. 


    Call live at 929-477-3163, log into blog talk network and join chatroom discussion. Show starts at 9pm; let's hear your Voices of InJustice as we discuss our American Educational System. Remember to invite your friends and family for our community outreach broadcast by Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery with host & producer Trish McKnight; Music Marc Joseph Ludeman

    In The Streets with Beverley Smith: Flint, A Study in Environmental Racism -ep53

    in Spirituality

    Flint, Michigan: environmental racism on display. The powers-that-be have knowingly, and with forethought, poisoned the tap water of the predominately black city since April 2014. This atrocity was recently uncovered and publicized, but no one has yet been held accountable. Water bills continue to be issued and the residents have been warned that they risk losing custody of their children if they don't pay for the poisoned water. The local EPA official quit last week. There is demand for Michigan's Republican govornor to resign. And there are rumors that undocumented immigrants in Flint are being refused the bottled water that has been sent to the area. Environmental racism is real. According to the The Center for Public Integrity, out of "300 complaints filed by communities of color, the EPA have never once made a formal finding of a civil-rights violation."


    Another black youth has died in custody. Her name was Gynna McMillen. She was 16.


    The trial of the officer who shot and killed Akai Gurley in NYC has begun. On the day he was shot, Akai Gurley was declared to be a "total innocent" by Chief Bill Bratton. But that doesn't stop the NYPD officer Peter Liang from attempting to avoid criminal responsibilty. President Obama bans solitary confinement for juveniles in federal prisons. Grand jury indicts two anti-abortion activists behind the fake Planned Parenthood videos. In response, Texas doubles down on its intention to completely financially strip the state Planned Parenthood. A federal court in North Carolina will hear a challenge to the state's restrictive voter ID law. And more. Tuesday, January 26, 6pm Pacific.

    Voices InJustice - Would you make the call? Carolyn Wilson, MSW, LCSW

    in Current Events

    Voices InJustice Radio, an outreach broadcast of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery, supporting the 'Family Crimes & Terroristic Abuse Act'. Join us live, Sunday evenings @7pm eastern/6pm central/4pm pacific time for a live discussion about the injustices we see in our communitities, our schools, our political leaders, family service organizations, and inside our very close circle of family/friends. We welcome your calls at 929-477-3163 or use your Social ID; log into blog talk platform for our live chatroom during the shows. We take all calls & questions, so don't hesitate to bring it to our discussion table.


    This Sunday evening, Oct 4th, it is a huge honor to welcome friend/colleague Carolyn Wilson, MSW/LCSW Sexual Abuse Therapist. Let's talk to someone who has been working with victims and families for over 30 years, as she gives us a very close personal insight in how this act, which so many believe is gentle and loving, will never harm the child; let's find out exactly what she has seen in helping survivors & families learn to cope and rebuild. There are many challenges you hear me talk about all the time, write about them, speak about them, and have helped my share of persons, but Ms. Wilson is the expert we welcome to answer your concerning questions. Let me ask you - Would you make the call to report/help a child in need, especially if you believe it to be a close member of your family? What types of backlash might we expect in reporting? Is it really anonymous to make a report?


    Keep in mind our shows are for entertainment purposes. While we may have experts join in we cannot & do not provide any form of professional theraputic, legal, or medical advice. It is necessary for you to connect with a Hotline or a service in your area. Please join in and invite some friends, or your teenagers.
