    Are Children Over Medicated? Gayani DeSilva M.D.

    in Women

    he California legislature is beginning to look at the way children are medicated with psychiatric medications. Some purport that prescribing practices are to blame—that psychiatrists are prescribing too many anti-psychotic medications which have significant and serious side effects to children, particularly in the foster care system. The practice of prescribing psychiatric medications to children is a direct result of the "presenting complaint" brought to the attention of the psychiatrist. The overuse or underuse of medication or inappropriate use of medication for foster children is a symptom of a much larger problem with the care of children in the foster care system.


    Dr. DeSilva has spent over 15 years as a Psychiatrist, specifically enhancing the mental health of children and adolescents. Much of her work consists of the complex array of needs with adolescent and young adult criminal and violent offenders to understand the interplay between mental illness, societal factors, and interpersonal issues. In this climate of horrific violence much of it perpetrated by adolescents and young adults in society today, she believes understanding the needs of children is crucial to preventing further tragic events. Dr. DeSilva believes not only must children with mental illness obtain the care they desperately need, it is vital adults participating in child rearing educate themselves about children's development and learn to communicate effectively with children and adolescents

    Community Stories: My New Wolfdog Puppy

    in Education

    Wolfdog Radio: Your Voice, Your Time will sit down with special guest Kat Wolfdancer to discuss life with wolfdog puppies! Members of the Wolfdog Community will join us around the table to ask questions, share their experiences, offer advice, or simply just vent!


    Sharon Green will also join us for a special interview to share her training methods, struggles, and stories while raising her two wolfdogs, Shango (high content) and Neeka (low content). Sharon will also stick around for the remainder of the show and offer her advice along with Kat! 


    Raising a wolfdog puppy can be a highly rewarding experience, but it can also be a challenge, especially during that crucial first year of development. It’s very easy to become overwhelmed. Sometimes this can leave your head spinning, and your days filled with frustration and concern that you’re not applying the “correct” methods and therefore jeopardizing the bond with your animal. Do not feel alone, we ALL go through this!! From the beginning to the ending stages of puppyhood, wolfdog owners experience a variety of challenges.


    No matter the content of our pups, there seems to be general consensus across the community that most, if not all, wolfdog owners go through similar challenges. Some of these include: resource guarding; rough play; mouthing/biting; socialization; car sickness; exposure to novel stimuli; and choosing the correct diet. We want to explore these topics and the various methods used to deter such unwanted behaviors. It’s important that we all have the opportunity to learn from one another.


    "What works for one, may not work for another. It’s always best to have a bunch of different tools to choose from."

    in Education

    This program is about Children, Teens, Parents, Children Protective Services and the Laws that infringe on those parents that are held accountable vs. those parents that are Abusive.  What is the difference between being Accountable vs. Being Abusive?



    Who said we were to be accountable, and if we don't we are held accountable, right?
    Should Spankings Stop and why?
    Should Legislation consider amending the law to demarcate the difference between  what is an Abusive vs. an Accountable parent?
    Is it fair for parents to choose between going to jail for being accountable or let their children end up getting killed for lack of rearing and the fear of going to jail?  Who is responsible for that...the law or the parents?
    Have the law gone too far

    Mothers And Daughters: Bridging The Cultural Generation Gap

    in Women

    Culture evolves through women, primarily based on what we teach our daughters. The aberrations in our culture, everything from excessive hair weaves to "twirking" on a YouTube video, evolves out of a message given to our daughters of what they must do to be acceptable females. Mothers can only pass down the wisdom they have, and when mothers come from a generation that defines success as a dollar amount on a paycheck, many mothers were driven to put full energy into a job or career and leave the child rearing to the TV. This, of course, has produced disasterous results. Now mothers are reconnecting with their daughters to examine what lessons can be learned from both the elders and the youth as we prepare to work together to create a new culture

Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.


    Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade.
