Listen to the Show here: ADHD – A new Mind for A New World

August 1, 2011
Guest: Cheryl Healey
Guest Website: The Gift of You

About the Show:
Why are so many sensitive children given a label of ADHD?  Why do the numbers keep increasing?  What can you as a parent do to help your child avoid this label and treat or avoid symptoms naturally?  Learn the big, complex picture of ADHD and how you can help these children whether you are a parent or a concerned individual.  The time is now to turn the tide for these kids.  The children will be glad you did and so will you!

Change Thrivers Tip by Cheryl Healy:
Sensitive children including ADHD and ADD kids have a higher sensory perception than norm. The can multi-task naturally and process more information which is suited to the exponentially increasing amount of information they are bombarded with.

Symptoms are mostly physical and usually a reaction to some kind of allergy. Allergies are extremely common in sensitive and ADHD children. They could be allergic to variety of things such as food preservatives, cleaning products, other chemicals and toxins.

You might like to check your children for three things:

  1. Food Allergies
  2. Leaky gut – a name used to describe intestinal or bowel hyperpermeability. Increased intestinal permeability begins with inflammation and irritation to the lining of the digestive tract. Over time, the intestinal lining begins to wear and break down. This forms large gaps between your intestinal cells which then allow toxins, pathogens, and undigested food particles to enter your bloodstream.
  3. Toxins

About the Show:

Who Said You Can’t Have it All? Educated and ambitious women today are clear about what they want… Yes, you can say it loudly and not feel guilty or isolated… I WANT BOTH!

Combining career and family is a fact of life for modern women, resulting from their tremendous progress in education and professional development. And, the great news is that you don’t need to be a Superwoman to get the balance right. It’s tough, yes. Rewarding too. But this ultimate juggling act is much easier when you have the right tools. Christine Brown-Quinn, a high powered career woman and mother, shares over two decades of hard-won advice.

Change Thrivers Tips by Christine:

  1. Find the right partner  – DISCUSS career ambition and family aspiration – don’t make assumptions
  2. Don’t overcomplicate your childcare arrangements and RESPECT your childcare provider – she is one of the linchpins to making it all work!
  3. Think like a business owner when trying to make changes to your work schedule to accommodate personal life

Change Thrivers Tip by Monica:

In any communication scenario, the more you can be authentic, be honest, be clear and be kind, the more effective your communication will be. When we communicate that way, we find that people will respond in similar way. The communication dialogue flows as opposed to being stalled.

The authenticity is key because it shows who you really are. The honesty is key because you talk about what your need really is. The clarity is key because it fosters understanding. And the kindness is important because there is so much stress, so much negativity and so much difficulty in the world which we live that is easy to fuel a reactionary pattern for most of us. When people expect you to be less than kind, a simple kind word can elevate the level of understanding and communication to a platform that maybe you didn’t expect but are glad to receive.

Write Down Your Soul to Activate the Voice Within

Listen to the Show here: Write Down Your Soul to Activate the Voice Within
May 16, 2011
Guest: Janet Connor
Janet’s Website

Change Thrivers Tips By Janet Connor:

  1. Give yourself the gift of STOP. The one gift we can all give ourselves is the gift of time. It can be just a few minutes, but for those five or ten minutes, get off the go-go train we ride all day and just be still. Deep soul write or meditate or just sit and breathe. Allow. Allow your inner knowing, that wise loving Voice, to speak to you. In the silence, you will find your way.
  2. Pick up a pen. Don’t wait until you’ve finished reading Writing Down Your Soul. Take a breath, set your intention, address the Voice by name and begin.  It’s a life-long conversation. You can start it today whether you know all the ins and outs or not. Release any expectations of what it “ought” to be like. Just begin. You’ll find the Voice is a loving, gentle presence and is oh so happy you’ve come to talk.
  3. Ask for guidance. Ask for guidance on the page in your deep soul writing, in your mind, in your prayers, as you’re falling asleep. All day and night long, ask for help. Help will come. It may come in forms you didn’t expect, but it will come.
  4. Pay attention. Everyone has innate spiritual intelligence, we just don’t use it. By starting to become aware of your spiritual intelligence, you strengthen and expand it, just like a muscle used in exercise. How do you exercise your spiritual intelligence? Pay attention to your intuition, your gut feelings, your emotions, synchronicities, books and messages that come your way, invitations, dreams…. There is no end to the ways guidance works with us once we begin to pay attention.
  5. Maximize your natural time in theta. As we awaken from sleep each and every one of us moves through the theta brain wave state—the only state in which we have access to break through thinking and true creativity. So use it. In the morning, lie perfectly still, don’t open your eyes. Just lie there and allow information and ideas to flow to you. Train yourself to lie still for longer and longer periods of time. Any question can be solved just resting in theta.
  6. Go on a media diet. Especially if you are in a fearful state right now or prone to pick up other people’s fear. The media and our political systems are designed to keep us afraid so we’ll turn to them to tell us how to stay safe. Fear is the absolute worst thing for your soul. Your soul is not naturally fearful. It is not afraid of life; it chose life. So help yourself by stepping away from the waves of things to be afraid of coming over the TV and internet and radio. If you can’t limit all TV, at least don’t watch any news before bed.
  7. Eat lots of “soul food.” In place of your media diet, feed your soul with lots of rich spiritual books and practices. Listen to loving uplifting messages. Read mystical poetry. Write down your soul. Pray. Sit in nature. Be still and know that you are loved.

Taming Parental Anxieties – Moving from Teenage Tantrums to Transformation

Yesterday, you worried about skinned knees, strangers, and ambulances. Today, it’s purple hair, drugs, apathy, and unfulfilled dreams. C. Delene Cole, M.S., Certified Family Life Educator, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, and Certified Parent Educator, chats with Change Thrivers parents about Taming Parental Anxieties while Parenting Teens on our next show.  If you’re experiencing the profound loss of your beautiful baby into a confrontational-driven teen, you may be ready to listen to Delene. 
Delene specializes in healthy family relationships and healthy adolescent transitions. She has been teaching parenting classes and facilitating seminars for couples, individuals and adolescents for over fifteen years, and has been training and certifying new parenting instructors since 2000. Dedicated to helping families and teens in transition or crisis, she brings her relationship skills and lessons learned from her own five children to help our Change Thrivers families look at old conflicts in new ways -and find healing and resolution.  Delene says “Sometimes adults have more layers on top of them, and have forgotten that there is a field of possibilities with our teenagers. When conflicts and arguments are just repeating the same pattern, or destructive behaviors are involved; or if families are going through bereavement, divorce or blended family adjustments, those difficult transitions can be helped by family discussions using a heart centered approach.“
In fact, when it comes to families, Delene says “Normal is just a dial on the dryer. Parental anxieties (internal or externally imposed) turn up the heat and make it more difficult to stay present in our relationships with teenagers, causing parents to use a lot of different strategies to get what we want”.  So Mom, are you worrying constantly about your out-of-control teen? Are you spending nights waiting for the sound of your teenager coming through the front door?  Change Thriver parents looking for support on Taming Parental Anxieties can join Delene Cole and learn new connection skills on our next show.
We look forward to hearing Venita Garvin Valdez on Venita’s View.

Listen to the show: Taming Parental Anxiety while Parenting Teens

Change Thrivers Tips

  • Although understanding teens is very important, it is also important to realize that a parent’s 
  • anxiety comes from within them, and although the teen may be the stimulus, the cause seeds within the parent. Thus is the need for parents to learn to calm their own anxiety in order to effectively deal with the multitude of challenges parenting teens brings up.
  • Learn to be more responsive than reactive with your children. Ask yourself, “What’s going on for me and how am I responding?”
  • Write down the core values that are most important to you and that you want to pass along to your kids. Keep them visible where you see them repeatedly. Let those values guide your behaviors and serve as the boundaries for your children.
  • Keep a picture of your children when they were very young and they were sleeping. Remember that the tender heart of the child still beats within your teen.
  • Have someone outside of your parenting relationship like a parenting buddy to process and bounce things off of because we all need guidance and support.
