Wish you could respond to your child’s behavior the way you want rather then react in the way you swore you never would? Hint: It’s not about changing your child. Simply put, it is a change in perception that allows parents to understand where their children are coming from and what their behavior means instead of simply reacting to it with yelling, threatening, rewarding, or punishing. Letting go of old habits is the hard part. We fear losing authority and giving in to children’s demands. But many of our old habits undermine our authority and leave us fluctuating between autocratic and permissive styles.
Tune in to a conversation between Director Ana Joanes and Bonnie Harris, M.S.Ed. the director of Connective Parenting. http://bonnieharris.com/
Homosexuality as an identity is increasingly acceptable in our society. However, we have a long way to go in offering help to children and their families as a gay child struggles with his/her identity, and makes the decision to come out. We need to find ways to be supportive to families and the individual child. The dynamics of a family are invariably changed when a child comes out and the family needs to be considered as a system in order to begin to come to terms with their child's identity.
Parents often feel stigmatized, and believe that they have not succeeded in being a good parent. "What did I do wrong?" Kids may blame themselves for even feeling any sort of sexual attraction to a same sex person, and fear they could lose their family, if it was even hinted at. Although many parents suspect their child is gay, it is rarely a topic that is addressed openly before the child comes out.
Today's guest, Dr Michael LaSala, the author of "Coming Out, Coming Home: Helping Families Adjust to a Gay or Lesbian Child," will help us understand the complexities of this concern and how we can navigate them.
Michael C. LaSala, PhD is a psychotherapist and associate professor at the School of Social Work at Rutgers University. He has been in practice for more than 30 years and he currently treats LGBT individuals and families at the Institute for Personal Growth in Highland Park, NJ.
Dr. LaSala’s book entitled “Coming Out, Coming Home: Helping Families Adjust to a Gay or Lesbian Child” is available from Columbia University Press and describes the findings and practice implications of a National Institute of Mental Health funded qualitative study of 65 gay and lesbian youth and their families.
Bullying may be defined as the activity of repeated, aggressive behavior intended to hurt another person, physically, mentally or emotionally. Bullying is characterized by an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person. It can be classified into four types:
Physical, verbal, and relational bullying are most prevalent in primary school and could also begin in preschool. Cyber-bullying, arguably the most destructive and common form today, is more common in secondary school than in primary school. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullying#cite_note-:0-10
If you hit your kid, you give them a message that it’s okay to hit others. And a new study examining the case histories of almost 2,500 American children confirms that spanking breeds bullies. Lead author Dr. Catherine Taylor of Tulane University... factored out the influences such as maternal mental health and use of drugs, domestic violence, neglect, income, age, race and education. And spanking emerged as the most important factor in determining which three-year-old children developed into aggressive five-year-olds. ("Mothers' Spanking of 3-Year-Old Children and Subsequent Risk of Children's Aggressive Behavior", C. A. Taylor, J. A. Manganello, S. J. Lee, J. C. Rice, Pediatrics 2010; 125:5 e1057-e1065; published ahead of print April 12, 2010, doi:10.1542/peds.2009-2678)
Should we focus on early intervention with parents?
Parenting is really hard, but it's especially hard if you're the parent of a child with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. There's so much advice being thrown your way, a lot of it telling you to be more firm, more consistent, and more diligent with the rewards and punishments. If all those sticker charts, time-outs, screaming matches, arguments have you feeling like a lot of parents do -- isolated, frustrated, and desperate -- well, you've found a program that can help. On this program, Dr. Ross Greene -- author of The Explosive Child and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach -- helps parents understand challenging behavior and overcome many of the hurdles involved in implementing his model. It's very hard work...and this is a great opportunity to call in, ask questions, get the support you need, and or just listen to other parents or relatives who are dealing with similar real-life issues. The program airs every Monday at 11 am Eastern time from September through May. Sponsored by Dr. Greene's non-profit, Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org).

Chelle Goodfriend has a background as a perinatal specialist working with women over the last 26 years at local hospitals throughout fertility issues, pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding and parenting. She has also attended over 500 births as a labor doula. Chelle is an energy medicine practitioner, trained in Peru, as well as an herbalist and clinical aromatherapist.
During a Womb Clearing we connect by phone or Skype in a quiet place where you can lay down with the phone on speaker. Chelle energetically removes dense energy from your womb from past traumas, relationships, abortions, miscarriages, cesarean or traumatic births with energy and visualization. She then fils your womb with radiant light. The process is powerful and deep and immediate changes are felt on physical and emotional levels.
