SORT BY Relevancy
Seldom, if ever, will you arrive at a place in life where your opinion about another person should rise to the level of them willing to risk their soul to appease you. No one has that kind of status with anyone and it is very important that we make sure others know this as well.
It is somewhat believed that a little white lie is not as bad as a big bold one but the stakes are the same. Whether it is a little one or a big one it is still a lie and that comes with a chance of losing one’s very soul because of it. If we care about those we converse with or say we care about, and then we must make sure that they understand that we are not so important in their lives that they have to chance losing their souls and therefore lie to us or tell us only what we may wish to hear. Truth has a way of fixing problems and easing volatile situation all on their own so by saying the truth when asked, we actually provide the best chance for a smooth transition.
Is it OK to lie to your kids? It certainly used to be. Victorian children grew up in fear of the bogeyman and other horrors, which was intended to keep them in line; to this day, many parents use similar techniques, serving up porky pies at every opportunity (that's Father Christmas shining in the sky, darling. But he won't bring your PlayStation if you're bad).
"When someone provides us information, we not only learn about what is being taught, we also learn something about that person," said Hyowon Gweon, lead author of the study. "If the information is accurate and complete, then you might also trust that person in the future."In other words, when parents lie to their children, they lose their children's confidence -- not exactly ideal for the relationship. It's obvious, really. After all, adults don't trust liars; why should kids be any different?

Frank Thomas will talk about his book "Rise: Even Death Can't Stop Me," his personal story of overcoming a childhood marred by poverty, his parent’s addictions, abandonment, adversity and bad choices and how he turned every thing that could have been a reason to quit into a reason to succeed.
Have you ever been pulled over by police and made to get out of the car? Have you ever been "patted down" for weapons, in other words, frisked? Have you ever been ordered to pull down your pants and spread the cheeks of your posterior? Unwanted touching is sexual assault, and yet police have been allowed to inflict this kind of abuse on citizens with no consequences. Refusal to submit can lead to further abuse, arrest, even killing. Citizens in Chicago are fighting back, with a lawsuit against the police for racially motivated "stop and frisk" procedures in which there is no probable cause for being stopped and no reports even filed of the incidents. In the city of Baltimore the people are rioting int he streets and across the nation, victims of police brutality are boiling over when officials refuse to punish acts of violence and assault committed by police officers. Right thinking people are coming together to remove bullies with a badge from positions of authority. Join with those who are standing up, speaking out and fighting back and will not stop until the practice of police abuse of citizens ends.

Tonight's special guest is Brittany Ecton from Olathe, Kansas, a 26 year old single mother who's a child abuse and adoption trauma survivor and activist. Still in early recovery, this will be the first time she tells her story in public. Sexually abused by her father, a belligerent drunk, she recalls being "conditioned" by him for years. A deeply troubled child her parents took her to many therapists, she says, ".. and every time I hinted at the abuse they would switch, and they forced medication on me for years." Her mother neglected her throughout her entire life and never showed her love or any form of kindness. "She had 3 other kids and it was obvious she loved them and not me." She explains, "I started acting out my abuse with my brother as a child, and the memories are so dark that I can't bare to even look at my brother anymore, without hating my entire body and mind for those memories. Once my hormones kicked in, I became ashamed of my body and life, I had no friends and no life, and I was tormented by kids for being different." A troubled teenager, she broke all the rules, before 18 had 7-8 suicide attempts. "I got pregnant at 19 and my mother forced me into giving my baby away due to no money, help or support, and I lived in a homeless shelter for 7 months." At 21 she married her friend, Zachary, a bad boy doing everything wrong who she'd knows since 15 years old. "He was in the military and promised to save me from my life," she shared. Returning from Afghanistan 80% disabled presented Brittany with new problems, and the additional challenge of giving birth to their son. In the middle of everything else she discovered she'd been adopted! Now married 4 years and seeing a therapist, Brittany's still struggling with doing what's best for herself and her young son.
WHY DO WE CHEAT ON YOUR WIFE?
WHY DO WE STEAL?
WHY DO WE QUIT OUR JOB?
WHY DO WE DO BAD BEHAVIOR? WHY?
NEXT QUESTION........HOW DO WE STOP DOING THE "BAD" BEHAVIOR
You know that you should exercise, and eat lots of veggies and less fried, salty and sweet foods.
But knowing something and actually doing it are two very different things.
You know you should stop procrastinating. You know you should watch less TV or go to social sites (or news sites, or your email program) less often. You know you should be writing, or learning that language you’ve always wanted to learn, or practicing guitar, or decluttering your house.
Knowing isn’t the problem. It’s the doing that gets us every time.

Tonight's was originally planned to be a show dedicated to a special guest. But instead there was a robust discussion of a variety of topics, chiefly about the how media covers (and doesn't cover) the issues of child abuse and trauma. We also talked about the important role played by reliable government statistics. Criticism of how media and government presentations was directed at our ability as a group to impress upon the general public that the issues we cover, child abuse and trauma, are as important to them as almost anything else we consider a priority to address in America. Bill Murray, NAASCA founder, was joined by Carol Levine from New Jersey, our cio-host, and by Max "from Montana." Tonight's show featured NAASCA panelist's thoughts and ideas about how to engage the public and provide resources, services and programs to anyone with an interest in fighting against child abuse and trauma.

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. Tonight's TOPIC: "Breaking The Bonds of Parental Alienation and Systemic Abuse" Nothing stirs up passions more than the controversy generated when parents are at war over the custody of a child. With the pathological 'win-lose' mentality of our family courts and CPS increasingly abducting and witholding children from loving parents to support the many industries that feed off commodifying our children, the system is aiding and abetting abuse, and reaping the financial rewards at the expense of our children and families. Join us as we speak with parents and advocates Keith Marsolek, Carolyn MacCloud and Marcie Harding who will be sharing their heartbreaking and frankly outrageous stories of alienation enabled by this system. Learn the steps they are taking to fight this devastating injustice both for themselves and others who are facing this brutal and overwhelming situation. We are also pleased to welcome back panelist, advocate and author Robin Karr, who's own incredible story remains one of the most corrupt and cruel examples of judicial terrorism we have ever encountered. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
