    Watch out! Seniors with Dysfunctional Families

    in Caregiving

     


    When adult children with aging loved ones start working the family on planning for the future they comment, “On, this will be interesting because my family does not get along”.  This is a red flag that this family maybe dealing with dysfunction from their earlier years.  There may have been the presence of alcohol, emotional distance, unclear boundaries and a lack of communication.  As a friend explained her childhood, “It was like walking on eggshells.”


    A functional family can more easily address the decline of their parent because they were raised to solve problems a group.  They communicate well, that does not mean they can place their parent in an assisted living without emotions.


    This radio segment will delve into the traits of functional and dysfunctional families along with solutions for families caring for their senior.

    Fatherless children and the impact of not having one

    in Culture

    children from fatherless homes are more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems. Boys are more likely to become involved in crime, and girls are more likely to become pregnant as teens.


    – Children in father-absent homes are almost four times more likely to be poor. In 2011, 12 percent of children in married-couple families were living in poverty, compared to 44 percent of children in mother-only families.


     There is significantly more drug use among children who do not live with their mother and father.


    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states, “Fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse.”


     Data from three waves of the Fragile Families Study (N= 2,111) was used to examine the prevalence and effects of mothers’ relationship changes between birth and age 3 on their children’s well being. Children born to single mothers show higher levels of aggressive behavior than children born to married mothers. Living in a single-mother household is equivalent to experiencing 5.25 partnership transitions.


     Children in grades 7-12 who have lived with at least one biological parent, youth that experienced divorce, separation, or nonFather involvement in schools is associated with the higher likelihood of a student getting mostly A’s. This was true for fathers in biological parent families, for stepfathers, and for fathers heading single-parent families.union birth reported lower grade point averages than those who have always lived with both biological parents.


    Father involvement in schools is associated with the higher likelihood of a student getting mostly A’s. This was true for fathers in biological parent families, for stepfathers, and for fathers heading single-parent families.

    America's Thievery, Greed, Control and Racism

    in Politics

    American history is thievery, greed, control and racism. America was stolen from Indians. White men migrated to America for new lives. Wealthy White men owned their mothers, their sisters, all people, places and things. Labor to build America was the results of White men stealing Africans from Africa and bringing them to America to work for no wages. The use of Africans became an industry and the greed of wealthy White men resulted in breeding of Africans as cattle was breeded to meet the demands for food and labor. In order to control Africans, wealthy White men hired poor overseers to stand watch by night and day. Overseers were given full control over Africans, as long as the life of the African wasn't taken without say so of the wealthy White man. Africans were sold on auction blocks, splitting up families. Africans were killed by Whites and it was less of a crime than killing an animal. Africans never gave up hope of freedom, and when government freed Africans, Black code laws were created so wealthy White men could keep free labor. Lock up Africans for any reason and have them serve time on plantations for no pay for years. Racism became the will of White men as a tool to hold back Blacks.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Jill Orhn Recovery Coaching

    in Lifestyle

    Stillwater, MN – The decision to give up the lifestyle of addiction and enter recovery can be tremendously fearful and isolating, like moving away from home and never speaking to anyone again. Everyone has their own path to recovery, but with the help of a recovery coach, you can develop strategies to successfully navigate the transition to sobriety


    A recovery coach is a certified non-clinical professional that supports you as you begin a new life without substance abuse. Jill Orhn is a recovery coach and the founder of Jill Orhn Recovery Coaching, where she helps women who are considering treatment or have recently left treatment to build a new vision for their lives. Jill supports women in transition who feel lost or hopeless or believe they don’t have anyone to support them.


    “A recovery coach helps to keep you on the path to stay sober by teaching day-to-day skills and establishing new routines,” says Jill. “We take away the shame and the stigma of being alcoholic or an addict and the idea that this is who you are for life.


    Jill helps her clients to recognize what areas in their life they need to find balance and how to recognize the negative thinking and triggers that can compromise sobriety.


    “I’m there to help them take that next step, whatever that step may be, and that applies to recovery or any kind of transition,” says Jill.


    Jill understands where her clients have been but also serves as a living example that life can get better and will. She and her clients work together to develop an action plan to start your recovery and help keep you in recovery.


    “Let’s take away the stigma and help people get sober in a way that works for them,” says Jill.

    Lunch & Learn w. Barrett Matthews

    in Self Help

    Join us on Lunch & Learn with Chris & Barrett as we bring on our guest co-host, Brent Harding


    Carol J. Matthews-Shifflett, MA


    Executive Director of the Sojourner Group, Salt Lake City, Utah. Ms. Shifflett has a Bachelors Degree in Cultural Anthropology and earned her Masters Degree in Community Leadership. After returning to college as a non-traditional student, Carol has been a proponent of empowering women and encouraging them to reach their highest potential. As the former Volunteer Coordinator for the YWCA, Salt Lake City, her career interest took on the direction of advocating for women in violent relationships. For the past 15 years she has been drawn to personal conversations with marginalized women of the African and Black Diaspora who often suffer in silence due to lack of cultural understanding from mainstream service providers. Carol has since been zealous in working to ensuring that Black women in Utah find their voices. As an active community leader, she firmly believes that leadership is not an individual venture, but one that involves a collective group of persons and personalities with a common goal of working for the good of the cause. Her chief principles are respect, integrity, communication, and commitment. It is with these qualities that she believes we can all collectively serve marginalized populations who have been victimized by sexual assault and domestic violence, improve the quality of their lives, and assist them on the journey of healthier lifestyles and families.
