    Ep. 7: PTSD and its Impact on Military Children

    in Family

    Approximately 8-10% of Service members who served in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq experience post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Research has documented ripple effects of PTSD on families, including children. Although most offspring are resilient and do not develop long-term problems, parental PTSD is associated with higher risks of distress and behavioral problems among children. However, these youth and families do not need to suffer alone, and many resources are available.

    Tonight's guest, Michelle Sherman, Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist who has dedicated her career to supporting veterans and their families with mental illness, trauma, and PTSD. She has worked in the VA system for almost 20 years, and has developed family education programs that have been used nationally in the VA. Further, along with her mother (a teacher), she writes books for teens dealing with parental mental health problems, including "Finding My Way: A Teen's Guide to Living with a Parent Who Has Experienced Trauma" (www.SeedsofHopeBooks.com)

    Teaching Children Respect

    in Christianity

    Do Your Kids Respect You? 9 Ways to Change Their Attitude

    By Janet Lehman, MSW

    We often forget that children aren’t born with a built-in sense of respect for others. While each child has a different personality, all children need to be taught to be respectful. From birth, kids learn to manipulate their world to get their needs met—this is natural. But it’s our job as parents to teach them respectful ways of doing this.

    People wonder why kids have gotten so much more disrespectful these days—we see children and teens arguing with adults (or ignoring them outright), using foul language, copping an attitude, and not using manners or respecting those in authority. Sadly, this has become the norm for many children and teens. In my opinion, it really is a different world right now than the one we grew up  in. Movies, music, video games and television all seem to glorify a disrespectful, angry, rude way of dealing with others. This means that in some ways we have to work harder as parents to teach our kids to be respectful. Added to this is the fact that parents are also busier than ever before, which makes it much harder to respond immediately to our kids. Let’s face it, it’s easier to let things slide when you’re worn out and stressed from working so hard.

    Changing lives of Women by giving them the necessary tools to become what they want in life. The best teachers come from life.

    Wendy Hullinger is an advocate for domestic violence awareness. She knows first-hand the difficulties of safely-escaping and ending an abusive relationship, after dramatically ending her own 15 year violent marriage. Her message includes the fact that domestic violence is found everywhere and at all social and economic levels. Silence, secrecy, and social stigmas feed and strengthen the violence. Everyone has a responsibility to speak out if they are aware of or witness any domestic violence within their families or communities. She is grateful for those who did that for her and her children, when she couldn’t do it for herself.

    January Jones-Loss of A Child-Donna Mebane

    in Family

    The worst nightmare – and the worst wound – for any parent is the loss of a child. Such a loss cuts to the core of one’s spirit and soul.  But that painful experience sometimes opens our senses to mere inklings as well as clear indicators that there is an energy of life that survives mortal death.  Such was Donna Mebane's experience. 

    Then, without warning or explanation, Donna's daughter Emma died at age 19.  Left with unanswered questions, the family was devastated.  And then, while still digesting their loss, Donna and her family began to sense Emma's presence, to see signs she was still with them, and they came to know , without a doubt, that Emma lived on.

    Donna fictionalized her experiences with Emma in Tomorrow Comes, the first in a three-book series that imagines Emma's life on that other plane while chronicling Donna's evolution from hope to knowing.  And while the book may be a fiction, Donna's experiences, and those of her family, are very real.
