    in Family

    Inspiration on Tap:  Living and Thriving with Rustie MacDonald


    Rustie Macdonald was born knowing that she wanted to help others to heal, to grow and to thrive.  Her life story is a zigzag journey of survival, learning, and loving life.  Having survived things no child should have to endure, Rustie refused to become bitter. Instead she used her experiences to foster in herself an internal strength, deep compassion and empathy for her fellow man in all circumstances.  As a veteran of the foster care system, she became an advocate for other foster children, seeking a way to create opportunities for education and a better life. She founded Celiac Roads Life coaching to help community groups and individuals move beyond their perceived limits to thrive far beyond what they believed possible for themselves.  Rustie is a gifted motivational speaker, with a down to earth, practical style.  


    In 2011, Rustie realized she could help a far wider audience by reaching out over the airwaves.  She discovered blog radio and “Living and Thriving with Rustie MacDonald” was born.  Every week Rustie brings inspiration to thousands with guest speakers bringing insight for Mind, body and soul.  Her international audience numbers in the thousands and is growing every week.   


    Look for her new book “Having Tea with My Skeletons” coming this spring.


    Rustie lives on the New England seacoast with her beloved Daughter.

    Raising the Mandingo Man Child ( Mother's Relationships with Sons)part 2

    in Music

    Raising the Mandingo Man Child ( Mother's Relationships with their Sons)With or without a husband or man in the household, raising a male child can be challenging for a woman. She wants to protect him from the world, prepare him to be a positive and responsible member of society, provide him with opportunities to succeed, pamper him with her love. 


    She has to deal with the forces and influences of society, whether the force is the school administration, officers of the law, the general community or her husband or her man or her family members.In his younger years, the bond is strong and they have a wonderful relationship. As he gets older, in his early teen or teen years, when he starts to feel himself, he begins to challenge her authority, act like the "man of the house" (that's what she called him) and suddenly there is conflict. When dad or father figure is in the home, some times, mom has protected her son against his advice, now the drama begins.


    When dad is not in the house, many times mom will say in a militant tone, "I am sending you to your father," some times after having spoken negatively about his father all these years - a formula for disaster also.


    How do we prepare our young men for success without emasculating them? Teach them survival skills so they will not depend on a woman or be desperate to find a woman to fill the place of mama? When should you stop breast feeding your son, allowing him to sleep in the bed with you, or allowing him to see you in the nude? When do you or should you teach him to cook, dance, hem his pants, wash and shop for his clothes?


    Have a single mother, mother with a step father and mother with the birth father; also have a single father raising his son, father/exhusband without his son and a 30 year old raised by his mom on the show to discuss.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1040

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Arnold Herman from Keansburg, NJ, a father of five, who, along with his wife, has also fostered 32 children over the years, some of them from abusive backgrounds. He is an author of two books with problem solving ideas related to teenagers, and runs "Experience Counts Inc", a non profit organization working to prevent the abuse of adolescents and teenagers by educating parents and children on ways to deal with each other without getting into abusive situations. Arnold writes, "Parenting an adolescent or teenager is without a doubt one of the toughest jobs in the world it is a 24-hour per day, seven day a week task that requires the patience of a saint, the Wisdom of Solomon, and the money of Bill Gates. By the time we get really good at it, our children have grown to adulthood." And he goes on, "The wrong kind of parenting can lead to many problems. In addition to creating a poor relationship between parent and child, it can often lead to various type of abuse. Abuse of adolescents and teenagers is a terrible, but often preventable, problem. More often then not it starts with a simple lack of communication. Then escalates to verbal and physical abuse The parents who perpetrate this type of abuse are often not bad people, but rather parents who have become frustrated in their attempts to communicate with, relate to, and control their children. Sexual abuse may also start innocently, with parents often unaware of the behavior that could lead to this terrible tragedy." Be sure to download his free handbooks: "Bring Back The Woodshed" and "Raising Reasonable Parents."
