    My Ex Is Dating My Sibling???

    in Romance

    Would you be ok with your Ex dating or being in a relationship with your sibling (brother/sister)?

    You’d be surprised at how often this actually happens. 

    In a recent post on Facebook, the question was asked, and the response was overwhelming how many people said they would not be ok with it.  But you’d be also surprised at the many private messages we received from our listeners who have experienced this dating no-no. 

    On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to discuss why so many people said it’s a “no-no”, while others said, they didn’t really care.  We’ll also have a very special guest who will reveal her story and experiences in this issue.

    Join us on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, at 8:00pm PST/ 10:00pm CST/ 11:00pm EST.

    To listen and comment by phone, dial (646)200-3148.  Or listen and join the chatroom online at:

    Through the Eye's of a Sibling; Autism Spectrum Disorder

    in Health

    The Two Trees is a poignant story that gives a glimpse into the difficulties of having a high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) child in the family. As told from a sibling perspective, it is both an exploration and celebration of brotherly love despite challenging circumstances, metaphorically reflected in the growth of two trees planted at the beginning of the story. The Two Trees is a must-read for all parents and kids, ASD families, educators, and anyone who has witnessed or felt the sting of being left out, bullied, or misunderstood. 

    Join me on The Keep It Moving Blog Talk Radio Show with special guest Sally Meadows, singer, song writer, author and more importantly a mother. Hear her experiences raising 2 boys and the story behind her new childrens book The Two Trees.

    The Sibling Project: Episode 1 - Nicole Spivey

    in Family

    According to SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly 24.6 million Americans were illicit drug users in 2013.  Now just for a moment, take that number and try to imagine the number of people that were impacted by that illicit drug use. Think about the families. Think about the number of mothers, fathers, cousins, grandfathers, co-workers and best friends. Think about all the people that were pulled into and torn apart by the viscous cycle of addiction.

    Clearly, the numbers are staggering and the heartache is real and we need to start talking about it. That’s why I’ve created The Sibling Project: Exploring How The Lives of Siblings Are Impacted By Addiction. Over the next several weeks, I will be speaking one on one with a group who’s voice we rarely if ever get to hear, the siblings of addicts and alcoholics. 

    It is my hope, with this series of podcasts, that we can spark a new conversation that focuses on the countless number of siblings living and struggling alongside an addicted loved one. 

    In Episode 1 of The Sibling Project, I am so excited to be joined by Nicole S. Just from the emails that we’ve exchanged I can already tell that this young lady has a lot to say on the subject.

    The effects of Sibling Rivalry

    in Relationships

    What is sibling rivalry? Sibling rivalry is a term used to describe the competition between siblings. Sometimes this competition results in negative behavior, fighting, or just vying for parental attention. Interestingly the age gap between children seems to reduce sibling rivalry, the farther apart siblings are the less likely they are to be competitive towards each other.
