SORT BY Relevancy
This podcast will be discussing whether or not materialistic teens or more or less motivated to learn at school and how teachers can change this.
When teens speak, do people listen?
Natalie, age 18, described her role model as a person with “a clear sense of what is important to her, putting forth the effort to improve and create things that will make a difference.” When Samira, also 18, feels “lazy, tired, or just plain annoyed,” she thinks of her role model and “is motivated to start working again.”
Natalie and Samira were part of my research study on how young people develop the skills, abilities, and motivation to become engaged citizens. They and 42 other college students recalled stories of their childhoods and adolescence and the kind of people who inspired them.
Role models come into young people’s lives in a variety of ways. They are educators, civic leaders, mothers, fathers, clergy, peers, and ordinary people encountered in everyday life. This study showed that being a role model is not constrained to those with fancy titles or personal wealth. In fact, students were quick to state that “a true role model is not the person with the best job title, the most responsibility, or the greatest fame to his or her name.” Anyone can inspire a child to achieve their potential in life.
Join us today at 2 pm EST when 16 year old Brittany Krystantos will share her story about how she found her voice, started her journey of awakening and now works passionately to help others do the same. We'll discuss what it's like to attend school for our awakening youth today and what we as adults, parents, teachers can do to better understand and support our future generations.

What makes police officers and the government powerless? When the American people know their rights!
Police officers don't like to hear these words:
"Am I free to go?"
"I don't consent to a search."
"I'm going to remain silent."
You have rights during a traffic stop or any police encounter. Learn what your rights are and use them before you loose them!
1. Safety - When being pulled over pull over to a safe place, turn off your ignition, stay in the car and keep your hands on the steering wheel. At night turn on the interior light. Keep your license, registration and proof of insurance close by like in your "sun visor."
Immediately roll your window down all the way. Not half way, not an inch so you can speak through the crack. All the way. Among other things, it will show that you have nothing to hide.
Be courteous, stay calm, smile and don't complain. Show respect and say things like "sir and no sir." Never bad-mouth a police officer, stay in control of your words, body language and your emotions. Keep your hands where the police officer can see them. Never touch a police officer and never run away!
On any given day in America, it is estimated that more than 1.5 million children have a parent incarcerated in a state or federal prison. And more than 10 million children are living with a parent who has come under some form of criminal justice supervision at some point in the child’s life.
The Annie E. Casey foundation discovered the compelling needs and circumstances of children with incarcerated parents, such as:
Since 1990, the number of female prisoners had grown by nearly 50 percent; three-quarters of incarcerated women are mothers, and two thirds have children under age 18.
Most law enforcement agencies lack training and protocols on where to place children when a parent is arrested and, often, ultimately incarcerated.
Approximately 10 percent of children with incarcerated mothers and 2 percent of children with incarcerated fathers are in foster care.
There are a disparate impact on minorities, with African-American children nine times more likely and Hispanic children three times more likely than white children to have a parent in prison.
Despite widespread statements that children with incarcerated parents are many times more likely than other children to be incarcerated as adults.
Risk factors such as parental mental illness, parental substance abuse, family violence and poverty were present in many children’s homes and lives prior to their parents’ incarceration.

HANDLE TOPIC WITH CAUTION! In this episode of Teens Talk Radio, teens will talk about suicide and depression. why are more diagnosed with depression than a decade or two ago? what is causing all the depression and anxeity that is causing these teens to want to kill themselves? the main question is... why? what are the reasons? these questions will be asked in this episode of Teens Talk Radio.
· Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10-24. Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for college-age youth and ages 12-18. More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED. This is too much of our population, these people could have been great to our society and we are allowing them to lose their lives right in front of our faces. Every life matters regardless of who you are and what you have done. This has to be stopped, and I feel everyone should handle things differently because no one has the same struggle. We don’t know what someone is going through if we don’t take the time to find out. We have to start helping each other, because there is always someone struggling with something. Sometimes people issues tend to become overwhelming when too much has built up. I have been a witness to multiple struggles and there is always a worst story then yours. I know the feeling when you feel like it’s easier to die then it is to live and no one deserves to feel that way no matter what.
