  • Top 10 Affects of Parenting on Children

    in Motivation

    Liam Cawley of Ireland asks;

    It is sad to hear of the passing of Bobbi Christina Brown yesterday. Was her death due to bad parenting or can we hold parents responsible for their children? Is that too much of a burden to lay at anyone's feet? That anyone can be responsible for another soul? I know my own relationship with my parents is good but it wasn't always so and I blamed my mom particularity as a teen for a lot. Looking back now I could have being more considerate of her and her attempts to do her best with a child(me) at times that was so hard to deal with. Also as children and parents alike what can we each do to make life more fulfilled/loving etc for all involved because I can only imagine being a parent has its challenges but perhaps being a child has too as was the case with Bobbi. Kindest regards Nadia.

    Teaching Children Respect

    in Christianity

    Do Your Kids Respect You? 9 Ways to Change Their Attitude

    By Janet Lehman, MSW

    We often forget that children aren’t born with a built-in sense of respect for others. While each child has a different personality, all children need to be taught to be respectful. From birth, kids learn to manipulate their world to get their needs met—this is natural. But it’s our job as parents to teach them respectful ways of doing this.

    People wonder why kids have gotten so much more disrespectful these days—we see children and teens arguing with adults (or ignoring them outright), using foul language, copping an attitude, and not using manners or respecting those in authority. Sadly, this has become the norm for many children and teens. In my opinion, it really is a different world right now than the one we grew up  in. Movies, music, video games and television all seem to glorify a disrespectful, angry, rude way of dealing with others. This means that in some ways we have to work harder as parents to teach our kids to be respectful. Added to this is the fact that parents are also busier than ever before, which makes it much harder to respond immediately to our kids. Let’s face it, it’s easier to let things slide when you’re worn out and stressed from working so hard.

  • Children without Their Biological Fathers

    in Christianity

    Fatherlessness in the U.S. remains a prevalent issue as the number of children living apart from their biological fathers is estimated to be nearly 30 percent (or roughly one in three), according to 2011 Pew Research data. 

    The number of children living apart from their biological fathers has more than doubled over the last four decades amid a growing decline in nuclear families.

    In 1960, 11 percent of children lived apart from their biological fathers as compared to 27 percent in 2010.

    One Christian artist says he hopes his music will spark conversations about the growing problem and bring healing to families across the nation.

    In August, acclaimed singer/songwriter Brian Nhira released his new single "Back Where You Belong" from his debut album Hope's Stand. The powerful track is described as an "anthem for the fatherless," and Nhira told The Christian Post about how a shopping trip to a local Walmart inspired the song.

    "The song was inspired by an experience I had as a college student," Nhira, a graduate of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, told CP. "I went to this Walmart (across the street from campus) and one of the things the Lord was highlighting in my mind was these mothers who were there shopping with their kids and struggling to look after their kids and shop at the same time. And so the question arose in my mind 'Where is the father?'"

    A Theory of Parenting - Photos in NYC for A Theory of Jewel 3

    in Fashion

    June 29, 2015



    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com

    My name is Tammi Joyner

    I am your Host for the Show

    Today we are doing a Photo Shoot

    What is unique about the Shoot is that we are shooting pieces of jewelry in Manhattan NY

    Yes, we are planning another book - A theory of Jewel 3

    So, I decided to take snapshots of our jewel around the city of NYC

    After Marquels graduation I thought it would be great to photo the jewelry wore to graduation

    Those will be featured in our new book - the book will be available at blurb.com 

    www.wikipedia.com says:

    A photo shoot is generally used in the fashion or glamour  industry, whereby a model poses for a photographer at a studio where multiple photos are taken to find the best ones for the required brief. The "model" is not always a person, however; for instance, advertising in print often requires photographic depiction of advertised goods, and food can be the subject of magazine articles (often in very elaborate presentations).
