    Daddy, Why Are We Different? wtih Sharon Ann Wikoff

    in Family

    NOTE:   After the first 20-25 minutes of the program, there is a period of silence.  Please fast forward about 15-20 minutes for the remainder of the program.  I'm so sorry for this inconvenience.  I will edit the program as soon as possible.  Thank you for listening! Sharon Ann Wikoff
    Today on the Voice of Change, I will share with you a story I wrote several years ago, entitled, "Daddy, Why Are We Different"?  This story is a gentle and loving story, telling a little boy of 5 why he was not circumcised, so he could look just like his Dad who was circumcised.  Circumcision has grown into a multi-million dollar business.  However, the rate of circumcisions performed in the USA has been greatly reduced over the last 4 decades, going from a 76 % rate down to a 33% rate, as parents learn that it is an unnecessary procedure, which is extremely painful and tramatic for the infants.  There is not one health organization in the world that promotes having a routine circumcision performed.  Today, more and more parents are questioning circumcision.  In addition, I'll share a remarkable story of a Jewish family who had their heart set on having their son circumcised until they learned the truth about the procedure.

    Teaching PEACE as a Priority to Children with educator, Sharon Ann Wikoff

    in Family

    Teaching PEACE as a Priority to Children is the topic for this program. I'm Sharon Ann Wikoff, host of the Voice of Change and delighted to be talking to you today on this subject. Recently, many books, experiences and conversations have led me to thinking more about this extremely importance topic. The book: Stop the Next War NOW edited by Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans; Deepak Chopra's book: Peace is the Way; and finally Red Grammer's musical CD Teaching Peace are some of the materials that have surfaced, calling my attention to this important subject. In addition, the essay, "The Challenge of Educating for PEACE by Joan Almon, US coordinator of the Alliance for Childhood" (www.allianceforchildhood.org) from the book, "Stop the Next War Now" played a key part in me taking a closer look at the subject of PEACE and children. Have you observed the 'games' children play on the computer or DVDs for the television or television cartoons and programming in terms of "war", "fighting", "killing" and "winning"? Recently, I unexpectedly viewed several children 5-9 years of ago using such 'games' and was shocked by their excited yells of: We got him! We killed him! He's out! and so on. Deepak Chopra opens his book, PEACE is the Way, with the statement: Today is a good day for war to come to an end. I believe that TODAY is a good day for the exposure of war games to children to come to an end! I strongly believe that parents and educators need to take a stand for Teaching PEACE as a Priority to Children, beginning TODAY! Tune in to hear more about this important subject and to learn 12 Principles for Teaching Peace to Children, in the schools and home environments.

    Peaceful Parenting Practices: Knowing Your Family Core Values

    in Motivation

    Welcome to Blog Talk Radio and the Voice of Change.  Rivka Kawano and I are coming together to host 4 radio programs on PEACEFUL PARENTING PRACTICES.  We are also hosting a 30 Day Parenting Challenge* for Parents, running from October 1 through October 30.


    KNOWING YOUR FAMILY CORE VALUES:  When you take time to discover the Core Values you and your spouse hold more dear, parenting becomes much easier. Knowing your values makes it easier to say "yes" and "not" when situations arise. Also, when each parent understands the values they hold most dear, as a person they can be more easily understood.  Also, recognizing what is important to each of your children, gives you a deeper understanding about their needs and preferences.


    SURPRISE TOPIC: Each week we'll have a 2nd topic of discussion. This one will be a surprise!  But you can trust it will be about a Peaceful Parenting Practice that will add greatly to you family life. 


    Sharon Ann Wikoff is a teacher, consultant and writer specializing in the fields of parenting, communicating with young children, self-esteem and personal transformation.  She holds two teaching credentials and has been working with children and families for over 30 years. 


    Rivka Kawano is the mother of three young boys and is passionate about the art of mothering.  She is a guru in the world of social media and is also passionate about beautiful books for children.  She reviews children's books at her site:  www.BeautifulBookforChildren. com

    Peaceful Parenting Practices: "YES" Environments for the Family

    in Motivation

    Welcome to Blog Talk Radio and the Voice of Change.  Rivka Kawano and I are coming together to host 4 radio programs on PEACEFUL PARENTING PRACTICES.  We are also hosting a 30 Day Parenting Challenge* for Parents, running from October 1 through October 30.


    "YES" ENVIRONMENTS FOR THE FAMILY:  A "YES" environment is one that allows a person to thrive. When children have "YES" environments in their home, they are able to entertain themselves as well as playing with other children nicely, for the most part.  "YES" environments also lead to independence for children.  Parents, too, need "YES" environments, designed especially for their needs and desires. Such places can be created in a small apartment or a huge house.  Such environments can be a permanent place in the home or temporary.  Tune in, we'll discuss all this and more!  


    SURPRISE TOPIC: Each week we'll have a 2nd topic of discussion. This one will be a surprise!  But you can trust it will be about a Peaceful Parenting Practice that will add greatly to you family life.
