SORT BY Relevancy
What would it take to get the people to stop following others? How can we expect our children to be leaders when we tecah them to follow? Do you want a child capable of memorizing random facts out-of-context or a child who self-leads?
What is the role of education to society? Is it to protect the children and the future? Are we doing so with the public education system? Do we have teachers following administrators and children following books that offer little self-leadership skills?
This subject may get lively so be sure to take the microphone!
Come join us the first Tuesday of each month as we explore together the many different gifts and abilities of these special children and adults. Have a better understanding of their importance in the world today and learn how we can hellp guide and support them throughout their lives.
Have you ever done your children's homework for them? Have you driven to school to drop off an assignment that they forgot? Have you done a college student's laundry? What about coming along to Junior's first job interview?
These examples are drawn from two new books — How to Raise an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims and The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey. Both are by women writing from their experience as parents and as educators. Lahey is a middle school teacher and a writer for The New York Times and The Atlantic; Lythcott-Haims was the longtime freshman dean at Stanford.
The books make strikingly similar claims about today's youth and their parents: Parents are "too worried about [their children's] future achievements to allow [them] to work through the obstacles in their path"

The majority of reasons the government gives for wars fought by this county are found to be false. Unless you are blinded by patriotism you need to pull your head out of the sand and stop letting the military use your children. Most people don't join the military because they believe the country needs saving they join for the money. So basically they are hired hit men.

Fifty three percent of African American children are living in single parent female headed households. Some are because of divorce. But a great number are because the parents never married.

We'll talk to young men, and even older men who prefer the single life, and find out why the institution of marriage is so unpopular among today's men? What message about marriage are young men receiving from their elders? Are young men in college more likely to marry, or does college only confirm that the bachelor life is better? Jared Mitchel, sophomore engineering student at Morehouse College and recent recipient of the Jesse Jackson Sr. Fellows scholarship of $75,000 from the Toyota Corporation, joins us today to give a perspective on how today's up and coming young men view the possibilities of marriage

The house of Israel acquired many possessions and multiplied exceedingly during the course of seventeen years, even through the worst of the seven-year famine. At this time, Joseph’s father was 147 years old and bedridden. He had fallen ill and lost most of his vision. Joseph was called into his father’s house and Israel pleaded with his son that he not be buried in Egypt. Rather, he requested to be carried to the land of Canaan to be buried with his forefathers. Joseph was sworn to do as his father asked of him. (Genesis 47:27-31)
Later, Joseph came to visit his father having with him his two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. Israel declared that they would be heirs to the inheritance of the house of Israel, as if they were his own children, just as Reuben and Simeon were. Then Israel laid his left hand on the eldest Mannasseh’s head and his right hand on the youngest Ephraim’s head and blessed Joseph. However, Joseph was displeased that his father’s right hand was not on the head of his firstborn, so he switched his father’s hands. But Israel refused saying, “but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he.” A declaration he made just as Israel himself was to his firstborn brother Esau. To Joseph, he gave a portion more of Canaanite property than he had to his other sons; land that he fought for against the Amorites. (Genesis 48:1-22)

Is there a correlation between MEN who have children with multiple women and MEN who are starving for affection from their mother? According to Psychology Today, "Emotional hunger is not love. It is a strong emotional need caused by deprivation in childhood." Feelings of emotional loss is linked to a deep and dull feeling that cause people to seek physical affection and attention in order to fill a void.
There is often confusion between emotional loss and LOVE. Many times there lies the need to be reassured and the strong desire to be dependent on someone. When there is a lack of affection in the home, especially from parents this can cause severe psychological development. Parents who are affectionate and attuned with nurturing their children, especially young men, often create secure, attached, and affectionate young adults. There is also a correlation of how too much attention, over-bearing,and affection from the parent's, usually because of their starvation for affection,can cause harm to young men's self and comfort.\
Come get on the COUCH!!! We will talk with experts in the field and of course parents who will share their stories and experiences raising Young Men and answer the question How Much is TOO much Affection and Attention? We will discuss how a parent who is capable of giving Love and Affection to their children and also able to set clear boundaries between them often produces independently whole adults.
