They say 5 times is a charm and that's good because today will mark the 5th appearance of Norm Schriever on the Powder Keg of Awesome. Norm is to us what Alec Baldwin and Christopher Walken are to Saturday Night Live.
The reason why we keep asking Norm back on the show (aside from the fact that he's super handsome) is because he is out there in the real world, making real stuff and being real about it. There's no BS with the Schriever and we love him for it.
Norm is in Cambodia right now and he has a new book out: The Book Marketing Bible: Essential marketing strategies for self-published and first-time authors, or any writer looking to skyrocket sales. (not an affiliate link).

Today’s guest, Stasia Ward Kehoe, the author of The Sound of Letting Go, a poignant young adult novel about living with an autistic sibling, will help us understand the many challenges faced by families living with children on the autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The protagonist, Daisy, a musical prodigy, has been the “perfect” sibling to her brother Steven. In fact, to a large extent her life is organized around his needs. Not only is she responsible for “baby sitting" which constricts her teen-age schedule, it’s also her “job” to be sensitive to his many special needs. For example, certain tonal sounds – noises too loud or not loud enough -- can lead Steven to self-harm, including wringing his hands until they’re bloody. Sometimes he can be physically violent, leaving Daisy and her parents vulnerable to physical harm. When Daisy’s parents decide to place Steven in an institution without consulting her, she is devastated.
Stasia Ward Kehoe grew up performing on stages from New Hampshire to Washington, DC. She holds a BA in English from Georgetown University and an MA in Performance Studies from New York University.
While working at Random House Children's Publishing, Stasia read her way through the entire children's backlist. She realized then that she found a focus for her writing - young adults. Since then Stasia had children and left full time work for freelance writing. Now she lives in western Washington State with her husband and four sons.
Stasia's novels include Audition and The Sound of Letting Go. For more information about Stasia's books please go to her website: http://www.stasiawardkehoe.com/
Today, Annie Abram and Erin Forgay will discuss violence, using a new paradigm that challenges traditional perspectives about teaching young children how to cope with violent times. The troubles in Ireland (1969 - 1994) will serve as a background.
We often hear: "she/he is a child of two years. She won't possibly remember." However, the latest brain research and the behavior of children, who have experienced violence (war, family violence, media, long term cultural, religious conflicts) tells us a different story. Even if a child does not actually witness violence, the psychological environment in homes and communities, profoundly affects children's psyches and ways of viewing the world. If a grandparent was physically injured during war times and can not walk, a young child can make meaning of the situation in order to have some way of understanding. In many families explanations are vague and confusing. Helping children process trauma at their developmental level is essential. Otherwise, the trauma is transmitted from generation to generation. We all need the language to talk about our fears and concerns.
Under the guidance of Diane Levin, Erin and a group of Wheelock students traveled to Northern Ireland to work with Early Years’ Media Initiative. Through this program, the Wheelock students explored the conflicts of the area and the effects on young children. Using persona puppets and dolls, the program is geared towards teaching young children how to respect differences and to promote peace.

Parents often feel they are losing a meaningful connection with their children. Children are feeling lonely and alienated.
