From what they want to wear, which technology they ask permission to use, or what activities they want to be part of, our children's behavior is many times a reflection of the influences and pressures that come from their peer group.

    Alcohol, Drugs and the Brain: Effects on LGBT Youth

    in Family

    1. What percentage of Americans smoke on a daily basis? 20 percent, one in five.


    2. What percentage of American high school students use tobacco? 20 percent, more than one in five, 5% of middle school students smoke.


    3. How many adult Americans have used an illegal drug at some point in their lives?: a) 70,000 b) 700,000 c) 7,000,000 d) 70,000,000 Answer: d


    4. Can drug use modify your brain? Yes.


    5. True or false: Nicotine is NOT an addictive substance. False


    6. How can alcohol abuse affect memory loss and dementia? Alcohol abuse can lead to or increase both.


    EXAMPLES OF DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 1. How do drugs give people pleasure? Drugs are rewarding because they directly or indirectly stimulate the brain’s natural reward system and cause dopamine to be released. Dr. Steven Hyman: “Drugs are much more reliable and potent than normal stimuli. Instead of running that marathon, or for a scientist, working for months and writing a good paper and getting it accepted—a lot of work for a little dopamine in the brain—people who use drugs find that they can literally short-circuit all of these natural processes.”


    2. Why do some people fall quickly into addiction, while others can experi- ment and then walk away? Dr. Hyman: “You know, it’s hardly heroic that we use alcohol well. And there’s no special act of will. And this gets back to the issue of vulnerability. That is, people who will take drugs enough to potentially get addicted seem to seek them out and enjoy them. They seem to have fewer warning signs.” Dr. Alan Leshner: “It’s not true that you take a drug and you become addicted for the rest of your life. Some people do. Most people don’t. However, most people (who routinely use) ultimately will become addicted to an addicting substance.

    The Hood: Spiritual Mapping (Bangerz, Drugs & Sex Trafficking)

    in Spirituality

    OnSunday, August 2 The Hood: Spiritual Mapping (Bangerz, Drugs & Sex Trafficking) 


    Have you ever wondered why violence, drugs and sex trafficking are so high in certain areas? Notice how they often link together? Of course we know finances and education are some elements we can see. But these evils are found across every social class. What about the elements we CAN'T see? 


    We sometimes think that we can cast off supernatural principalities through natural empowerment and means - but as we see this feels like a pointless process in places like Baltimore and Chicago. We often ignore or downplay the power of the gospel and prayer due to all of the fraudulent and deceptive schemes used through some self-absorbed churches and religious organizations. 


    People look at places like Chiraq and Memphis and get overwhelmed and feel the bold presence of a stronghold in these areas. There are spirits they feel. Demons - and they arent talking metaphorically. But the issues are certainly metaphysical. We're talking about it... Share with others but PRAY in the Name of Jesus over these hoods - specifically in or around your communities. Get with His Holy Spirit to give you understanding and vision on what to do exactly and what to hone in on. Its hard to have healing in the hood when the wars are on-going. Imagine the souls tormented from the constant experiences of loss and trauma. Satan knows exactly how these things affect generations of people & their souls

    Youth and Raising an Atypical Child

    in Family

    Join co-hosts Eric Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) as they discuss the important issue of raising the atypical child. The hosts will be joined by Rita Eichenstein, PhD, who was penned a guide for parents who are struggling with their ‘atypical’ child; be it ADHD, Autism, a learning disability or any other diagnosis.  Dr. Eichenstein, a clinical psychologist, notes that the tendency to just focus on the child’s well being is only half the journey; because much of the child’s ultimate mental well being rests largely on the well-being of the parents and she provides tools and understanding to help parents work through the often discouraging process of raising a child with any type of difference.  If you are a parent who wants help in coping with the challenges of raising an atypical child, or a professional who wants to get a better idea of how better to understand the parents of the children they work with, listen to these childcare experts talk about the issues.
