This week, Cathy Taughinbaugh joins me to talk about what parents can do now to help keep their kids safe from drug or alcohol use and abuse.
She will talk about some easy strategies and methods anyone can apply to be more involved in their children's lives, and how they can take an active part in helping them avoid the dangers and consequences of alcohol and drug use.
Cathy works with people, mainly parents interested in receiving support. These may be parents who feel their child is addicted, but also parents who are concerned about their adolescent’s experimentation or recent abuse of drugs or alcohol. Through personal coaching, articles, resources and various eBooks, she offers inspiration to others facing the same or similar challenges in their lives.
If you're looking to take preventative action to help your child live a long, healthy, and happy life, you'll want to tune in to this episode!

Tonight's special guest is Deborah Dooley from Denver, Colorado, a NAASCA family member who's making her first appearance as a special guest on our show. "The support of the unity of your organization has already impacted me," she told us some time ago. "I already felt great about even making contact with you and knowing what you are doing that it gave me a refreshed hope about my own journey of healing." Deborah's a proud member of the Christian community, but also wrote me that she recognized the benefit of using a 12 step "design for living" for child abuse recovery, saying, "Many times, I have thought about how valuable it would be to have a 12 step program for abuse issues that could translate to help all people since the 12 step is so effective in its use." A 12 step program encourages belief in a Power greater than oneself, of course, but allows for a God as you understand Him. She said, "I, personally, hope to go through this 12 step program that you have developed" (please see www.ASCA12step.org). Deborah was born in Hawaii but lives in Denver now, and tells us she's the proud mother of a daughter who unfortunately ended her life in July 2013 after a long series of very traumatic circumstances. "My life up until her death was focused on getting her safe from abuse by her dad since the courts don't protect kids from this," she says, "and there's no place to turn for help at this point to protect your child. I am now working on what is the best and most expedient solution for the courts." She believes that these kinds of preventable tragedies can be stopped from happening to children and families. Deborah hopes to work toward making our country be more loving towards its children.

Gratitude Night !! On this Thanksgiving evening, we'll pause to give expressions of our gratitude for our recovery from child abuse and trauma, and express our desire that we can be effective in our mission .. (1) to educate the public to stop the silence and (2) to offer hope and help to the still suffering adult survivor of child abuse. Wearing a Blue Ribbon is the symbol of Child Abuse Awareness! Millions of abuse victims (men and women) hide the story of their experience well into adulthood. A huge number continue to suffer from pain, anger, fear, shame and embarrassment for decades. Most will agree their traumas have resulted in an inability to trust, make good decisions and have healthy relationships. But giving up the secret is often how recovery begins, one survivor talking to another. Join Bill Murray and his co-hosts, panelists and guests, many of them abuse survivors, others supporters and friends, for an informed discussion of the many important issues that surround child abuse. Anonymous calls and chat room participation are encouraged. ~~ Please see our web site at: www.NAASCA.org

Tonight's special guest is Barbara Ochoa from San Francisco, a returning NAASCA family member who's Executive Director at Help4Guys.org. Barbara's here once again to talk about the events that are planned in celebration of "Male Abuse Awareness Week" (MAAW) which is held each year during the first week of December. MAAW is an awareness campaign that was started by the P. Luna Foundation in 2008, and the website is an extension of that program. The main focus is to change the negative social stigma that goes along with the topic of males who are victims of sexual or emotional abuse and domestic violence. "Most abused males avoid therapy and treatment because they are too ashamed or afraid of being judged for doing so," according to the web site. "By bringing the subject to light once a year we hope to make this topic more socially acceptable and in return more men will feel comfortable enough to seek the help they desperately need but in many cases avoid." Since the awareness campaign's inception in 2008 we at NAASCA have been pleased to participate hand-in-hand with Barbara Ochoa, and Bill Murray has appeared at several of the live events. We too want to help men who were victims of past abuse break their silence, in order to inspire younger men into getting treatment. Like Barbara, we have seen more and more celebrities come forward and many more news stories reporting on males who are victims of abuse.

Polly grew up with six siblings in Mobile, Alabama, but was only 8 years old when her father died of lung cancer. Soon two neighborhood boys began to molest her, friends of her older twin brothers. A couple of years later she was assaulted by another neighbor and later by her older brother. She was able to break away from the abuse at the age of twelve, but was by then deep in the darkness of isolation. Polly is now a mother and grandmother, and has lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years and has become a devoted advocate for adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse.
She began her organization, This One Step, to help older survivors of Child Sexual Abuse deal with the trauma of being part of what she has named, "The Unknown Generation" A generation of survivors who had nowhere to go for support. In her late teens she began writing as a coping mechanism to deal with the PTSD. Her three books, "Cider Blocks and Oven Racks", "Billy Wayne's Christmas Train" and "The Unknown Generation" will be available in early 2016. She has written many southern short stories which have been published in different publications. She is now hosting her own blogtalk radio show Monday through Friday beginning at 6:00am.

We Are Asking The Great Poets Of The Black Poetry Café To Help Us Keep Our Airwaves Filled Of Truth With Your Magnificent Voices. By Volunteering an Hour(S) Of Your Time, And Take Over BWR’s Airwaves.
We intend to boycott Christmas—but not Jesus. We think that they have taken advantage of us and our consumer dollars by materializing the respect and honor of Jesus, and making it a bonanza for a White business.Starting on so called "Thanks Giving Day" with a 24 hour Broadcast remembering the Holocaust of our Native American Family. So on Black Friday, we won’t be there!
“It’s a shame that a White man from the north pole, with eight reindeer, can knock Jesus to the curb on a day that is supposed to honor his birth! So on that time, we spend more money for alcohol, more money for material things, more money for drugs—everything gets a benefit from our fantastic foolishness in honor of Jesus.
Let's Redistribute The Pain! Withhold your dollars."
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
