SORT BY Relevancy
Some parent trying to raise their children outside of the gender binary have turned to Gender Neutral Parenting. It focuses on not forcing any preconceived gender norms onto their child so they can find their own comfort spot on the gender spectrum. But since it's relatively new concept to our society, what that actually means concretely can feel a bit fuzzy to people.
Based on our article, 5 Myths About Gender Neutral Parenting, Paige Lucas-Stannard will will talk about how it shows up in everyday life and how to apply it to their own parenting approach.
Many in religious circles practice spiritual parenting as a way of making sure their ministries are in alignment and growing with the grace of God but is this practice biblical. Prophet Hubbard releases a powerful and sound revelation concerning the practice of spiritual parenting as he breaks down the purpose, benefits, and the nature of what a spiritual parent says they offer you but what you really submit yourself too. Tune in for this powerful revelation on The Prophetic Roundtable.
If nothing changes...nothing changes. When we lack awareness insights into how our hardwired behaviours i.e being judgemental and reactive continues to block intimacy there is felt-sense of "sameness" about every interaction. Life is defined by fear. A self fulfilling prophecy manifesting victimisation.
Mindfulness's two-prong practice: social and emotional intelligence approach optimises parenting, partnering and companionship.
Over time when practised on a daily basis it is possbile to shift from being a victim into a heroic individual, successful in love and life.
Driven by stimuli (addiction to intensity) results in being easily triggered into feeling frustrated angered and hurt, intellectually, spiritually and emotionally avoidant. Such is the potency of unconscious thinking/feeling behaviours. The brains hardwiring does the firing and is hugely responsive to new brain body/thinking/feeling behaviours.
Addiction manifests obsessive compulsivity, as felt sense of being disconnected. When we approach life from a mature mindfulness stance we personify self acceptance, non-reactivity, non-judgementalism, validation, empathy and compassion.
No longer needing to be reactive, entitled, enraged and oppositional. When we feel good- enough we are emotionally balanced. We navigate life with a heightened sense of equipoise, authenticity and awareness.
Mindfulness combination of social and emotional intelligence creates a powerbase of potent people (social) skils. Healing primal intrinsic states of disconnection.
We are hardwired to conect. Mindfulness sweetens all our connections with loving kindndess, empathy and compassion.
As media personalities it us our duty to speak against injustice and show support for causes sometimes. Tune in this Sunday as we discuss the genocide of our young black men. What happened to the time when black people rallied together? We are losing our sons, our brother's, our fathers, and uncles to a range from street violence to racially motivated homicides. When do we pull up the curtains and join forces to save our men???? Black boys in America have the hardest burden to carry, we need to teach them exactly who they are, what they are worth, and protect them so that they grow to be the Kings they were born to be. Join us Sunday at 9PM EST as we ask...Is this America’s secret genocide? Call us and share your thoughts. 6467168772

Join us for 2 hours at 10 PM Eastern. (Second hour is open mic)
Tonight for the first hour we will be joined by Parenting Expert, Marriage/Family Therapist and the Author of "Let's Color Your Feelings", Terry Basile.
Terry Basile has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 25 years. She has also been a mental health program administrator for such programs as Head Start, First Five and Parent Education Network. Working with troubled teens and their parents she became aware that patterns of miscommunication often started as young children. She created the book Let’s Color Your Feelings ! to encourage a language between children 3-8 and adults of color and positive behaviors. Terry believes that an educated heart is the best parenting tool. She also writes a question and answer column in parenting magazine, Growing Up Chico which is also available online. She is currently writing a chapter book for pre-teens who face the challenge of being different.
Terry will offer strategies for healthy communication between adults and young children. Just as important as the food they choose to nurture their bodies, is the emotional food we give them to express their feelings. It is vital to a child’s emotional growth that adult caretakers teach how to share feelings in a healthy way and respond appropriately. Tantrums are not pretty on a young child but are disastrous on a teen. Listen in to learn how to use the strategies of her book Let’s Color Your Feelings! to engage children early and create a safe language of feelings in their family!
