SORT BY Relevancy
No teenager ever aspires to become homeless or without parents and other love ones, running from the very people who were supposed to care and protect them. However, 1.6 to 2.8 million teens runaway from home each year, according to the National Runaway Switchboard. Many of these teenagers are abused sexually, physically and emotionally. They run for safety but instead end up fleeing right into an abyss of dangerous predators seeking vulnerable youth who only yearn for the comfort of a caring b

Parents have a great challenge ahead of them when their children reach teen years. Teenaers reprewsent a consumer market and not all of the companies that wish to corner that market have the best interest of the teen at heart. Birth control companies wish to profit from heightened sexual arousal in teens and sell condoms in high school. Music producers wish to profit from teens and promote entertainers with the "gangster" persona that appeals to young people seeking identity, acceptance and belonging. So what happens when your teen desides to "follow the crowd" and begins to project that rebellious, disrespectful attitude? How do both parents come together, even if they are living apart, and stop the cycle of self destruction before it's too late? Professionals in social work, entertainment, and education discuss what it takes to intervene in the life of a teenager headed in the wrong direction.

THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE: This is an exciting time to be a teenager in America. Young people today are growing up in a rapidly changing society with hopes for a very promising future. According to a recent U.S. Health and Human Services study, survey results show that 84% of high-school students plan to attend a four-year college. Teens overwhelmingly share their parents’ values of honesty and hard work, and are engaged in positive activities. More than half of all teenagers volunteer with a community organization, attend a house of worship weekly, read the newspaper twice a week or more, and attend cultural events or visit museums. In spite of this positive outlook, however, adolescence—the transition between childhood and adulthood—is still one of the most difficult times for children and parents alike. Growing up is more than the physical changes that occur, such as getting taller or more muscular. This passage is a time for establishing independence, testing limits, trying on different roles, exploring new feelings, and fostering intellectual growth. Above all, adolescence is a process that takes time to happen. How can you help your teenager look around the corner?

Various ancient African Egyptian topics are discussed with host Unut Anpu. Topics are based on the teachings of Shetaut Neter (Egyptian Mysteries) as taught by Dr. Muata Ashby of the Sema Institute and the Temple of Aset.

It hasn't gone anywhere, the Long War, that is.
People may be suffering whiplash having to look back to Europe in the middle of a Pacific pivot, and the Arab spring wilted in to extremism and bloodshed - but the war against the West still goes on from lone wolf attacks at home, to drone strikes across the swath of southwest, south, and central Asia.
Coming back to Midrats for the full hour to discuss this and more will be Bill Roggio, senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Bill is also the President of Public Multimedia Inc, a non-profit news organization; and the founder and Editor of The Long War Journal, a news site devoted to covering the war on terror. He has embedded with the US and the Iraqi military six times from 2005-08, and with the Canadian Army in Afghanistan in 2006. Bill served in the US Army and New Jersey National Guard from 1991-97.
