    Adolescents and the Justice System

    in Family

    Hello friends and followers alike!! Adolescents and the Justice System had such bad technical difficulties that I'm re-airing it for all those listeners that plugged in, and now you'll have an opportunity at hearing a very important message about our adolescents that are in trouble with the system. How non violent offenders are ending up with violent offenders only to end up worse than when they went in.  But it starts at home folks. We have to step up in giving healthy discipline, guidance, and structure so our children don't end up in the system to begin with, and this means we have to be a healthy example for them. Please join me as I talk about this important topic of our young ones that so desparatedly need our attention. Audience participation is encouraged! I'll see you this Thursday nite at 7pm CT at www.blogtalkradio.com/ritahodges or call in to my studio at 646-929-0421 when I'm live. See you there!!! Ciao!!

    Are Children Over Medicated? Gayani DeSilva M.D.

    in Women

    he California legislature is beginning to look at the way children are medicated with psychiatric medications. Some purport that prescribing practices are to blame—that psychiatrists are prescribing too many anti-psychotic medications which have significant and serious side effects to children, particularly in the foster care system. The practice of prescribing psychiatric medications to children is a direct result of the "presenting complaint" brought to the attention of the psychiatrist. The overuse or underuse of medication or inappropriate use of medication for foster children is a symptom of a much larger problem with the care of children in the foster care system.


    Dr. DeSilva has spent over 15 years as a Psychiatrist, specifically enhancing the mental health of children and adolescents. Much of her work consists of the complex array of needs with adolescent and young adult criminal and violent offenders to understand the interplay between mental illness, societal factors, and interpersonal issues. In this climate of horrific violence much of it perpetrated by adolescents and young adults in society today, she believes understanding the needs of children is crucial to preventing further tragic events. Dr. DeSilva believes not only must children with mental illness obtain the care they desperately need, it is vital adults participating in child rearing educate themselves about children's development and learn to communicate effectively with children and adolescents

    YOUTH CULTURE

    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

    The State of Hip Hop: Has Hip Hop Changed The Way We Think Today

    in Education

    Introducing the State of Hip Hop as a discussion to find out if Hip Hop's out of control these days. Is hip hop different from the past. What is the State of Hip Hop today?


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hip_hop


    As a result, gangsta rap became a platform for artists who chose to use their music to spread political and social messages to parts of the country that were previously unaware of the conditions of ghettos. While hip hop music now appeals to a broader demographic, media critics argue that socially and politically conscious hip hop has been largely disregarded by mainstream America. Has Hip Hop changed from this view. What is now the "State of Hip Hop?"


    According to the U.S. Department of State, hip hop is "now the center of a mega music and fashion industry around the world" that crosses social barriers and cuts across racial lines. National Geographic recognizes hip hop as "the world's favorite youth culture" in which "just about every country on the planet seems to have developed its own local rap scene." Through its international travels, hip hop is now considered a “global musical epidemic.”  According to The Village Voice, hip hop is “custom-made to combat the anomie that preys on adolescents wherever nobody knows their name.

    The Sugar Show: Sugar and Our Sprouts with Ben Briggs

    in Family

    Ben Briggs joins Shirley on the continuation of The Sugar Show  episodes to talk about sugar and its relationship and affect on children. The idea of sugar in children is particularly complex because sugar offeres some energy but not a lot else by way of nutrients and minerals essential for healthy growth and development for our little sprouts. If excessively consummed, the energy is not burned in the body and stored as fat. 


    Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. Understanding the habits we form early on and our relationship with food, can better frame our youth's caloric imbalances- taking in lots of calories and expending few calories- and genetic, behavioral and environmental factors affected.
