    Special Needs Parenting

    in Lifestyle

    Join me and my special guest Stephanie Collins, as we discuss her struggles as a parent with special needs children and how writing down about her experiences was not only therapeutic, but led her to write a book. "With Angels Wings", tells the  story of what she went through without romanticizing or glazing over the most difficult times. Her message is to tell the parents of special needs children that they are not alone, to give professionals working with these parents a perspective, and to give all others a glimpse into the world of special needs children.

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

    in Fashion

    June 29, 2015



    Hello,


     


    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).

    Reclaim Your Health: Self-Care for Parents of Children with Special Needs

    in Self Help

    Join us as Rose-Anne Partridge shares about the importance and the how-tos of self-care for parents of children with special needs.


    As a mother of a 15-year-old with special needs, Rose-Anne understood that she didn't have all the answers. 


    One of the biggest problems facing families who have children with special needs is self-care. Who is taking care of the caregiver? We tend to put all our energy and efforts into helping our children, and in the long run, we find ourselves exhausted and burned out. 


    Rose-Anne believes those answers need to come from the individual and from the families and our communities. And she believes that as families who have children with special needs, we need to come together to help each other reach those goals and create those innovative ideas.


    Let’s come together and continue to have HOPE!


    About The Hosts:


    Rachel Haviland, Ph.D. blends 19 years in scientific research with cutting-edge marketing techniques to bring a unique perspective to medical marketing.

    PMP: Janet Callahan - Parenting Pagan Tots

    in Spirituality

    Join RevKess & KaliSara to talk with Janet Callahan about her newest book, Parenting Pagan Tots, as well as her website Our Little Acorn, which discusses special needs parenting in Pagan families.


    From her website: "Author and priestess Janet Callahan has had articles published in several anthologies and on various websites, as well as on her own blogs. She has had poetry published on the now defunct paganliving.com. She’s also published an eBook on being a Pagan Parent in the NICU, and has written a mini-course on planning for Pagan holidays.


    Ms. Callahan has been Pagan for more than 15 years. She trained under a Dianic coven in the Detroit area and was initiated as a Mother priestess at Imbolc 2007. She is also currently a 2nd degree student with a more traditional Wiccan coven that focuses on family-based practice. She considers herself to be a Modern American Polytheist – a mixture of syncretistic polytheism, techno-Paganism, pop-culture magick, Wicca, and Unverified Personal Gnosis (UPG).


    Additionally, Ms. Callahan is the former Program Director of SpiralScouts International, an alternative Pagan-based scouting organization for children ages 3-18, and a former board member of several other Detroit area Pagan organizations."
