    Teenagers Rock!

    in Youth

    What makes teens the most interesting of all the ages?  You tell me!  I know that it was a time of "testing the waters" and no one older knew a dam thing because they were in the way like a dam!   (Smile)

    What is it that makes teens rock the world?  Why do we retard the progress of learning?  What the heck do I mean by that? Do our schools slow down (retard) the individual learning process that starts when we are infants?  Is life about gaining higher levels of consciousness?  What is to love about teens?  Everything?  Sure, didn't you love that time of life when "adults" made little sense and "babies" wore diapers, and "YOU" mattered most as you went about trying all kinds of new things.

    Teenagers, Anger and Depression

    in Culture

    Sabrina discusses the importance of understanding that teenagers mask depression in different ways than adults. Sometimes they are not aware they are depressed. There out of control behavior, angry outburst, irritablity and loosing hope and interest in life could be signs of depression. According to the Tenn Depression Statistics: "Teen depression can affect a teen regardless of gender, social background, income level, race, or school or other achievements, though teenage girls report suffering from depression more often than teenage boys. Teenage boys are also less likely to seek help or recognize that they suffer from depression, probably due to different social expectations for boys and girls - girls are encouraged to express their feelings while boys are not." (http://www.teenhelp.com/teen-depression/depression-statistics.html). Sabrina with her special guest Kush Kumedy Kafe talks about laughter as a way of dealing with stress and depression. Kush Kumedy Aaron Westley, delivers Comedy from real life situations. and talented Donna Summer's legendary  career." Atlantic City Weekly.

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, founder of Miclknight, where health and wellness are one. I am an educator, speaker, author, fitness trainer and passionate about healthy living.


    Gift: at the end


    Topic: Sleep


    What exactly is sleep? What is it's definition? (Wikipedia)


    How much sleep do we need to feel good the next morning?


    Rule of thumb:


    Newborns (0-3months)  14-17 hours


    Infants (4-11 months)   12 - 15 hours


    Toddlers (1-2 years)     11 - 14 hours


    Preschoolers (3-5 years)  10 - 13 hours


    School-age children (6-13 years)   9 - 11 hours


    Teenagers (14-17 years)      8 - 10 hours


    Young Adults (18-25 years) & Adults (26-64 years)   7 - 9 hours


    Older Adults (65 and over)    7 - 8 hours.


    Why is sleep so important in our lives?


    ~60% of waste products produced during sleep, body recovers, skin restores, 


    Lack of sleep: slows down healing process, motor skills are slower, tremors from lack of sleep or too much caffeine....


    Why does good sleep improve our health?


    Where do you sleep the best, your own bed or anywhere? Why? Mattress, pillow, blanket, different bed, unfamiliar room, ...


    Who decides on whether or not we sleep well?


    For children it's the parents......


    For adults..... they decide.....


    Good, deep, and solid sleeps makes you feel so good that you can say upon waking up in the morning:


    "Today is the best day of my life again!!!"


    Conclusion:


    Answer the above questions for yourself and see where you can improve.

    Mother’s Milk #SamiyyahSaafirMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Family

    Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.


    While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow.  It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.


    Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.


    A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty.

    Moms Boyfriend vs. Mom's Son: How Do You Resolve the Conflict?

    in Women

    When a marriage ends, whether due to death or divorce, and a woman is left to raise her children alone, she generally doesn't plan to remain alone for the rest of her life. She hopes the male companion that enters her life will also be in harmony with her children from her previous relationship, and ideally everyone will get along, she'll remarry and live happily ever after. That's the hope. Unfortunately, that is very often not the reality, particularly when the children have reached the teen years.  A woman with teenage daughters has to be very cautious about bringing men around them. There are countless horror stories of men who tried to seduce or even sexually assaulted the teenage daughter of the woman they were dating. A woman with teenage sons has to face different issues. A sixteen year old son without a father present in the home sees himself as the male head of household and sees any other man entering his mothers's life as an intruder. How should a single mother handle these situations as she prepares to find a new husband?
