Think it’s easy being a kid these days? Think again: peer pressure, social pressure, finances, bullying, divorce, standardized testing, guns, drugs, school violence, abusive adults, low self-esteem, and more. These are many of the same problems that adults face, but as adults we typically have coping skills. But even though adults have coping skills, many still have difficulty dealing with these situations. So how do we expect kids to effectively handle these situations? More importantly, how and where do kids learn the social and emotional skills they need to cope with the life challenges they will ultimately face? The lucky kids will meet Staci Ellis, a child and adult psychotherapist who specializes in trauma. Years ago, Staci created a mock brochure for her young nephew which provided advice and preparation for life challenges. From that idea, Staci developed Life Stuff for Kids, a forum for kids to express and exchange thoughts on life challenges. Kids need to know they have someone to turn to for help and resources to get them through life’s difficulties. Staci Ellis knows more than most on that subject. She began as a Therapeutic Support Staff with a non-profit, served hundreds of families as a Mobile Therapist and Behavior Specialist for 15 years, then became a Trauma Therapist working with kids and adults. She taught parents and school staff behavior management skills and provided professional training on Trauma and Children to bachelor, masters, and doctoral level attendees, and facilitated a class for separating parents called Children in the Middle.

On "It's My House" we shall continue our gentrification series by taking a look at "financial literacy". One of the major factors behind a neighborhood becoming gentrified is because the people living in that neighborhood on a critical mass level are usually "financially illiterate".
Ignorance is the root cause of gentriciation.
We shall be listening and learning from Albert Higgins who is the C.E.O./President of Aboriginal Financial Solutions. He will be speaking to us about "Financial Literacy" and financial solutions.

“I’ve been a Caroline Sutherland fan ever since the first moment I met her in the ’90s. In fact, she fulfilled a dream of mine. At our first meeting, Caroline looked at me, clearly saw my deficiencies and nutritional needs, and on the spot designed a special plan for my particular body. I felt understood for the first time.”
- Louise Hay, Author of You Can Heal Your Life

" For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope". (JEREMIAH 29: 11)
In this episode, I'll discuss how you can use everyday situations to teach your children about responsible money management in age appropriate ways. You can educate your kids about budgeting, prices, and sales tax at the grocery store. You can explain mortages, interest rates, student loans and credit cards to your teenagers. Paying your children commissions for doing their chores will help them make the connection between work and money at an early age. Teaching your kids about money can be a fun, hands-on experience for both of you!

Today on "It's My House" our podcast today will be the first installment of our "Gentrification Literacy" series. Many people (at least in the USA) belive that gentrification is "race" based, but it's not ! To a very high degree it a matter of a person, household, and community becoming "Gentrification Literate".
If a person, household, or community loose control of their neighbor it is because they are "Gentrification Illiterate".
We shall discuss today the #1 strategy for not falling prey to gentrification with the owners of "Golo Organic Farms".
