Coping with the loss of a child

Coping with the loss of a child

One of the most difficult things to deal with is the loss of a child.
This interview is with a mom who lost her 20-year-old daughter in a car accident.
She talks about the pain and the steps of her grieving process in the hopes of helping others that might be going through this struggle.

Linda answers these questions in her video and although you need to watch the whole video, to highlight the important parts I have the times in the video beside some important questions that will be great for review after you watch the whole thing

  • What happens to you when you have a death in your life and how do you deal with people? 3:30
  • What to do when you are struggling with the loss 4:55
  • Coping skills 5:55
  • What to do if you feel like you want to disappear 7:00 – 9:42
  • What are the stages, and do you have to go through them? 10:15 – 14:15
  • What you need to do in order to move forward 14:45-18:40 and 27:15
  • Permission to do what you need 29:00 – 30:33
  • Do you feel like you have lost your heart 31:49 – 36:54
  • A personal message from Linda to help you through this journey 36:54 – 42:00

Please take Linda’s advice if you are struggling with coping and find a counselor that has suffered a loss as well as they will understand and be able to help you with your grief.

Gender Identity

Gender Identity

Why are we forcing children to think about what their gender identity when all they want to do is play?  Most children will fantasy play that they are a different gender or animal, but this doesn’t mean they ‘want’ to be a different gender or an animal permanently. They are just trying to understand what it must be like to be a different species.  I sometimes wonder what it would be like to be the Prime Minister, but that doesn’t mean I want to ever become that.  I try to imagine what his day must be like, what are the pros and cons of being in that kind of power. Would I enjoy the attention or not. So why if we think about things like this is a child not allowed to play act without it meaning they ‘want’ to actually be a different gender.

Are children old enough to even know what they are really feeling or thinking about in regards to not only their Gender but to anyone’s gender?

Are we putting thoughts into their heads that they are not capable of processing correctly yet?

Do we want to risk their futures just so we can be politically correct?

Why can’t we just let our kids, be kids and think about Gender Identity when they are older and are able to think it through for themselves.
Let your little girls play with dump trucks and climb trees, catch frogs, and let you little boys play with dolls or help mom in the kitchen without assuming they need to have a sex change or that they are homosexual.

Stop worrying about being politically correct, and instead start worrying about ensuring your child is happy, content and is enjoying their childhood.  We don’t need them to grow up faster than necessary.

Intact Vrs Circumcision Pro’s and Con’s Part 2

Intact Vrs Circumcision Pro’s and Con’s Part 2

Why do people get so upset when you mention Circumcision.

This show is just about educating on different subjects, and so the subject of circumcision has to be one of them.
Let’s stop pointing fingers and get down to what is important, and that is parenting to the best of our ability.

I don’t care if you did, or did not circumcise your son, it is your business, not mine!!
No shaming allowed !

Even though my guest speaker is very clear in her opinion, she doesn’t believe in shaming either way.

So let’s get a discussion going. Why do you think you should or should not circumcise?  Both of my guest speakers are willing to answer your questions and or give reasons for why they have made statements on these videos, so please leave comments.

Or if you believe the opposite of these guest, please tell us why and if you are an expert on the subject, we would love to have you on the show.   Leave your comments and contact info and I will contact you as soon as I can.
