    Youth and Forming Good Habits

    in Parents

    Join Eric Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) in a discussion about today's youth and helping them form good habits. Habits can help or hinder success in school and in life. Forming positive habits will more likely result in getting more sleep, maintaining better health and weight, managing the obsessions with their devices, or finishing homework and studying for tests more successfully.

    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.

    in Social Networking

    Examples of Youth Culture


    The term "youth culture" refers to the ways that teenagers conduct their lives. Youth culture can pertain to interests, styles, behaviors, music, beliefs, vocabulary, clothes, sports and dating. The concept behind youth culture is that adolescents are a subculture with norms, mores, behaviors and values that differ from the main culture of older generations within society.


    Commonly-used Youth Culture Examples


    ·         In the 1960's the wearing of clothes that indicated freedom


    ·         Following of music groups that perform music that speaks to the issues teenagers perceive themselves enduring at the time such as Nirvana in the 1990's and The Beatles in the 1960's


    ·         Hairstyles that exhibit a lack of conformity such as brightly colored hair, spiked hair, shaved heads


    ·         Behavior that is contrary to what is perceived to be accepted and expected by parents such as drinking, smoking, using drugs


    ·         Language usage that is bold in order to set themselves apart such as either excessive cursing or a usage of esoteric “cool” buzz words


    ·         Behaviors such as cutting school or low grade criminal activity in order to assert independence and non-conformity
