FREE Global Gratitude Gathering Audio-Summit November 23 at 4 PM ET

Company Logo      

Thank You in Any Language is

Good for Your Health=Global Gratitude Gathering

    Each of us has 86,400 seconds of daily once in a lifetime opportunity to be thankful. Every second is precious and unique. And we only get one shot at that precise moment in time. Why not make them grateful?

Gratus is the Latin root word for gratitude; meaning appreciativeness, thankfulness and gratefulness. Gratitude is positive acknowledgment for what we receive; albeit, tangible or intangible. Being gracious with our thankfulness is one way to validate the goodness in our lives. It is a profoundly simple process that allows us perspective in recognizing the source of our goodness is oftentimes derived externally through another person, place, thing or activity. Another positive attribute of gratitude is that it enables us to temporarily set aside our egos and connect to something greater than ourselves as individuals. This form of greater positive engagement with the world generates joy and reaffirms life.
  Being grateful for each day and the good things in life is not something that should be reserved for once a year Thanksgiving traditions such as turkey and football. Adopting an "attitude of gratitude" is a simple practice that can improve our health and create greater happiness in our lives.

In my years of practice as an applied positive psychology coach, I am continually amazed at the magnificent power that two of the most basic (and magic) words, "thank you", can have on the giver and receiver of gratitude. Positive psychology research continuously supports this observation by reporting that gratitude helps harvest greater happiness.

Gratitude helps us build positive emotion, savor goodness, improves our well being, cultivate meaningful relationships and helps us to be more resilient when life is not always a happy experience.
 
 
How do you give thanks? We'd love to know and invite you to our free Global Gratitude Gathering audio-summit to take place on Saturday, November 23rd at 4 pm ET/ 1 pm PT. Click here to RSVP.  We would be grateful for your company at our first-ever complimentary 90-minute Harvesting Happiness gratitude-generating mini-workshop designed to delight and enlighten our growing global community.  (Convert to your timezone: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/).

The workshop will be presented in English and include a complimentary downloadable workbook as well as access to a recording of the event for all registrants in case you cannot make it live in real-time.

It is our way of saying "thank you" for showing up and being a part of making the world a better and more joyful place for us all. There are no strings attached. Your contact information will never be sold or traded. Feel free to gift this invitation to a friend. The more, the merrier...and we are all about making merriment over here.

The Modern Mom vs. Anxiety (of trying to do it all) with guest Dr. Carolyn Daitch October 15 at 11:00am ET

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety is a normal reaction to stress and can actually be beneficial in some situations. For some people, however, anxiety can become excessive. While the individuals suffering may realize their anxiety is too much, they may also have difficulty controlling it and it may negatively affect their day-to-day living. 

  • Anxiety disorders affect 18% of the U.S. population (40 million adults, age 18 and up)
  • Anxiety affects one in eight children, putting those children at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences and engage in substance abuse
  • Women are 60% more likely than men to experience an anxiety disorder over their lifetime 

Dr. Carolyn Daitch has been a psychologist in private practice for 30 years. She is the director of the Center for the Treatment of Anxiety Disorders in Farmington Hills, near Detroit. She has written several books, including Anxiety Disorders: The Go-To Guide and most recently Anxious in Love: How to Manage Your Anxiety, Reduce Conflict and Reconnect with Your Partner. In addition, Carolyn has a series of audio programs that teach guided meditation and stress reduction techniques for anyone suffering from anxiety. To learn more about Dr. Daitch and her work, visit: www.anxiety-treatment.com.

Rachel says, "As challenged as we are, we are equally capable....beyond measure."

Equality in Parenting with guest Adam Dolgin August 6 at 11:00am ET

How many men does it take to screw in a light bulb? Just one, if that light bulb is the idea behind Fodder 4 Fathers, one dad's search for online equality in parenting. It's a simple story really: it's about a father trying to make sense of his new role as a parent and finding himself shut out again and again by Internet parenting forums that catered almost exclusively to moms. So what's a man to do when he wants to learn more about raising happy and healthy kids, but all he finds is opposition and ridicule?--- He creates a place he can call his own.

And so the seeds for Fodder 4 Fathers were planted; a place where moms and dads could meet as equals, and talk about that which is most important to us- our kids.  So they created a blog (not having a clue what one was) and called it The Evil That You Know (@blogpot.com), because, well, it's better than the evil that you don't know. And they just started writing about their experiences as a new dad. And, oddly enough, people started to like it and relate to it and talk about it. The website has quickly become THE place for moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, parenting professionals, non-parents, and expectant parents alike to come together and share their experiences about the trials and tribulations of raising amazing kids. To learn more about Adam and his work, visit: http://www.fodder4fathers.com/

Yummy Health with guest Lisa Goldbaum August 13th at 11:00am ET

 

LISA GOLDBAUM is the co-founder and CEO of YummyHealth®. After years of watching her two children become junk food addicts, Lisa started searching for healthier snack options that her kids would actually enjoy eating without a fight. She was disappointed to find that most so-called "healthy" snacks on the market contain as much sugar and processed starch as the regular commercial varieties, while the truly healthy snacks weren't appetizing to kids. This inspired Lisa, a former financial and technology journalist for organizations including Forbes, Barron's and Institutional Investor, to investigate creating what would eventually become YummySwapsTM-snacks made with real-food ingredients that are better for kids but still taste great and can be swapped in for their favorite junk.

As a conscientious parent you want your kids to eat less processed foods, more veggies, less sugar as well as a nice variety of healthy foods. Our guest is here to you us that it's do-able.  What's the disconnect between what we want for our kids, what we know, and making it happen.

It's lack of support. Our culture doesn't support it, our lifestyle doesn't support it and to be totally honest, sometimes our own eating habits aren't the best role models for our kids.

So let's make the shift that changes the culture. And, let's start with the culture at home. For sure we want to change the way society feeds kids, but let's focus with your own dinner table first.

Our first step is about shifting our children's thoughts about their diet. You can't force your kids on this journey of healthy eating, you have to make it a trip they won't want to miss.

We can have the intention, the desire and even the tools to feed our kids healthy food, but if they are not "bought in" to the idea of eating healthy, we won't get far.

Instead of being the food police, be an advocate for your families wellness.  

Nina Manolson is a Family Wellness Expert, is a Certified Psychology of Eating Coach, Holistic Health Coach, and the author of "Feed Your Kids Well In A World That Doesn't: An Everyday Guide to Make Healthy Food Happen in your Home and Beyond." Nina has over 20 years experience in the Health & Wellness field and is the recipient of the prestigious Integrative Nutrition Health Leadership Award.  She holds a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology and is a Certified Psychology of Eating Teacher.

He has been facilitating groups in schools, churches, and in his home free of charge for over ten years now. Today he facilitates men and women's' groups as well as marriage consultations helping folks enhance the intimacy in their family.

Mixing Business with Fatherhood with Guest Peter Shankman June 25th at 11:00am ET

PR Week Magazine has described Peter as "redefining the art of networking", and Investor's Business Daily has called him "crazy, but effective." Peter Shankman is a spectacular example of what happens when you merge the power of pure creativity with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) along with a dose of adventure, and make it work to your advantage.

Peter is best known for founding Help A Reporter Out, (HARO) in 2008, which in under a year became the number one website for thousands of journalists on deadline to connect with experts and sources for their stories around the globe. HARO is currently the largest free source repository in the world, sending out over 1,500 queries from top-tier media to more than 300,000 sources each week, enabling any company or any individual to get their expertise in front of the world, entirely for free. HARO's tagline, "Everyone is an Expert at Something," proves over and over again to be true, as thousands of new sources add their knowledge at helpareporter.com each week. In June of 2010, less than three years after Peter started HARO in his apartment, it was acquired by Vocus, Inc.

Peter is the author of three books: Most recently, Nice Companies Finish First: WhyCutthroat Management is over and Collaboration is In (Palgrave-MacMillan, April, 2013), Customer Service: New Rules for a Social-Enabled World (Que/Pearson, 2010), and Can We Do That?!

The Apprenticeship of Being Human: Early Childhood Parenting Matters to Everyone with Guest Graham Scharf 6-11-13 at 11 am ET

Early childhood is the apprenticeship of being human. The disproportionate influence of these early years lies in the fact that apprenticeship occurs constantly in children's most primary relationships during a period of unparalleled brain growth that has a lifelong impact on a child's character, competence, creativity, health and ability to collaborate.

Graham Scharf is the husband of a developmental pediatrician, and the father of two delightful daughters, ages 4 and 9. While his wife cares for kids with developmental disabilities and brain injuries, Graham is full-time dad to their girls.

Prior to full-time fathering, Graham worked in a team consulting group, and then as a second and third-grade teacher in a failing school in Brooklyn, New York.  It was in that school that he first saw the intersecting strands of early childhood parenting, character formation, and the role of stories. Graham made the jump from education to full-time parenting when his wife began her pediatric residency - and he hasn't looked back.

During those precious years with his girls, Graham has been working to help parents of young children. In 2008, he co-founded Tumblon.com, the only web app that provides interactive developmental milestones to parents of young children. In 2013 he published The Apprenticeship of Being Human: Why Early Childhood Parenting Matters to Everyone. Graham conducts parenting workshops and seminars regionally, and speaks nationally on early childhood parenting. He writes on these topics on his blog, and for several publications. Graham also provides consulting services for businesses that seek to support their employees in their roles as parents.

When he isn't reading, writing, coaching or speaking, you can probably find him spending time with his kids - cooking, drawing, hiking, or reading.

Children's Dreams with Guest Kelly Bulkeley May 28 at 11:00am ET

Why is it so hard to remember dreams?  Scientific evidence dating back to the 1950's has shown the brain is active in various ways throughout the sleep cycle.  Yet when we wake up we often can't remember more than a few fleeting images that disappear from our minds almost immediately.  Why can't we recall more of what we experienced while asleep? Our guest, this week, will help us understand why we dream and how dreams can help us unlock our creativity and make sense of our lives.

As a child, Dr. Kelly Bulkeley was not particularly interested in dreams, but as a teenager he experienced a series of recurrent nightmares in which he was chased and attacked by frightening antagonists, including the uber-villain Darth Vadar of the "Star Wars" movies.  These nightmares literally forced their way into his waking awareness and prompted what has become a lifelong fascination.  So much so, he earned a doctorate in Religion and Psychological Studies from the University of Chicago Divinity School and has written and edited several books on dream research.

Priscilla Gilman is the author of the acclaimed memoir The Anti-Romantic Child: A Story of Unexpected Joy (Harper), a beautiful exploration of our hopes and expectations for our children, our families, and ourselves, and the ways in which experience may lead us to re-imagine them.

Gilman received her B.A. summa cum laude and with Exceptional Distinction in English and her Ph.D. in English and American literature from Yale University.  She was an assistant professor of English at both Yale and Vassar before leaving academia in 2006.  From 2006-2011, she worked as a literary agent at Janklow & Nesbit Associates, representing a wide range of literary fiction, memoir, parenting, and psychology/education books.  During these years, she also taught poetry appreciation to inmates in a restorative justice program and to New York City public school students, and spoke at numerous early childhood and education conferences and events.

With the publication of The Anti-Romantic Child in 2011, Gilman became a full-time author, speaker, and innovative teacher.   She now writes regularly about autism, parenting, education, disability, and literature for The Daily Beast, the New York Times Book Review, the Chicago Tribune, MORE magazine, O: The Oprah Magazine, the Boston Globe, and Huff Post Parents.  A prize-winning teacher and with a background in the performing arts, Gilman is a captivating speaker whose warmth, dynamism, and accessibility make her highly sought-after by schools, conferences, and organizations.  She is a Scholar-Facilitator for the New York Council For the Humanities, offering seminars on poetry to high school students and non-profits throughout the state of New York, and serves on the Advisory Council for Ramapo for Children (www.ramapoforchildren.org).  She blogs at www.priscillagilman.com, and has an active Facebook page with over 32,000 fans (www.facebook.com/priscillagilmanauthor).  On December 17th 2012, the New York Times published her op-ed, "Don't Blame Autism for Newtown," which was the #1 most emailed article on the New York Times site for the following day and has been extensively disseminated via social media.  Gilman lives in New York City with her family.

You Say I Fight Like a Girl? That's Right, I Do!! w/ Kym Rock May 7 at 11:00am EDT

The amazing true story of Kym Rock's journey from abused housewife to karate world champion.

Kym was a small-town high school athlete who thought she had won the boyfriend lottery when she began dating the star football player from a nearby private school. Married soon after graduation, he pursued a career in law enforcement as she took a job at a bank. It didn't take long for the dream to become a nightmare. After suffering numerous beatings, broken bones and actually being raped by her husband, and finding the local law enforcement unwilling to do more than turn a blind eye, she began taking karate lessons but lied to her husband and told him she was taking banking classes. Under Sensei Jerry Lemon's tutelage, Kym regained the self-esteem she had in high school and found the courage to leave her abusive marriage. That alone is a triumphant story, but nobody expected what happened next. Kym proved to be an amazing student of martial arts and quickly earned her first black belt and began competing as soon as she was able. She fought her way up the ladder to become Virginia State Champion, then the US National Champion and was eventually crowned World Champion, not once, not twice, but seven times, and has since been inducted into the World Karate Union Hall of Fame and the US Martial Arts Hall of Fame.

Ignore what I say...Just do what I do! With guest Valerie Remy-Milora

 

The parent's credo "Do as I say, not as I do" has become the tagline of the hypocrit, and parents (and kids) are starting to realize that children learn more from watching what their parents do than they ever will by listening to what they say.  If your child is showing signs of disrespect, laziness, apathy or self sabotage...you need to listen to this show, because it may just be that once you turn your OWN thoughts to your needs and truths as a person, your kids will begin to respect and follow your lead as a parent.

Guest Valerie Remy-Milora shares her wisdom and experience as the founder of www.scrumptiousmoms.com a website dedicated to providing women with the inspiration and tools to live balanced, bold and beautiful lives filled with passion purpose and joy.

Who's your DAD-Day! With Guest Dad, Scott Ventrella

It's DAD-Day!!!

Today's Dad Guest is Scott Ventrella, Host of "The Business of Living" and creator of www.positivedynamics.com

It's become far too common to see news of professional athletes, movie stars, rock stars and even politicians commiting acts of violence, drug use, adultry and cruelty...yet we as parents allow our children to look past these "faults" and put these folks on a pedestal because of their income level or fame.  

Why is it so easy to put personal beliefs and morals aside when it comes to what we consider a "Hero"?

Scott and I will discuss what makes us turn the other cheek, how we can set a standard for our children to look up to that doesn't include judgement or censorship & How parents can (and should) be the model of what their children strive to achieve...

Santa Doesn't Deliver Gratitude.

This time of year, it's easy to sit with our kids and make lists of all the things they want to receive, and it's a common parenting tool from Sept. through Dec. 24th to get children to behave by threatening them with the things they won't get if they are on the "Naughty List"...but how many of us sit down with our kids From Dec. 26 throught November 1st and make list of the things we already have that we are grateful for?

My guest Christy Whitman is the creator of "The Enlightened Kid" program as well as the author of "You are More Than What You See" she is a masterful Law of Attraction coach, believer and success story.

Listen in or call in and join the conversation...it may just be the most transformational, educational hour you'll invest all year!

I'll give you something to be Thankful for!!!

It's Thanksgiving!  

A time for family and friends to gather and eat and share stories and examples of what we have to be Thankful for.  But why do we limit it to one day out of the year?  And what is it on that ONE DAY that our kids are giving thanks for?  Is it the fact that they have off from school? Or that gift giving season is right around the corner?  Or their Xbox?   Why not the food on their plate, the roof over their head, the family in their life?  

In this "age of entitlement", how do we teeach our children the lost virtues of gratitude and thankfulness...not to mention philanthropy!?!

Join me and my guest Jan Helson, author of "Global Game Changers" as we give you tips on how to use digital tools to teach children about giving back and making the world a better place & discuss ways to encourage children to "Ignite Good" in their lives on this special Thanksgiving edition of Stop Raising Einstein!

B!@#ch PLEASE! Who is the WOMAN in your house?! With Guests Regena Garrepy and Francesca Escoto-Zavala

Short shorts with "Juicy" written across the bottom...transparent linen tops with black bras...acid washed jeans with holes where the pockets used to be & 4" stillettos...sounds like the wardrobe at a LA night club, but it's actually a group of 14 year old girls at the Mall...with their MOTHERS!  WTF?!  

What happened to all the adults today?  When did it become proper ettiquette to dress your daughter like a street corner whore while mom sports sweats and ratty t-shirt? Why have moms lost their sense of "sexy, sensual self" and handed the sexuality batton to their teen (or even tween in many cases)

Tune in for "Lunch with the Girls" as we talk with Bye Bye Good Girl and Reclaim Your Essence founder Regena Garrepy and WooHoo Radio Host of Living Latina, Francesaca Escoto-Zavala to talk all things HOT (or should I say "caliente"!) in the world of women and girls...and why & how to cool some of them off, pronto!

You're always welcomed to call in and join the fun....but please, put all questions in the form of a compliment :o) Tuesdays 11am-12noon EST 877-864-4869

The Lion Roared and the Otter Laughed...IOW: What the heck is up with my kids personalities? with guest Suzette Browder

Who ARE the people we leave in our kid's locker room? With Guest Dr.. John Mayer Oct. 2, 2011

IT's DAD-Day!!  That one day of the month that we honor parenting from a DAD's Perspective!

Today's guest and our DAD of The Month is: 

 

Dr John Mayer, author of Family Fit and Nogginpower

 

The horror that struck parents and schools all over the country when Penn State announced the Sandusky Sex crimes started a wave of uproar and anger that engulfed a nation.  How could parents let this happen?  Why didn't anyone tell?  Why didn't anyone know!?  Who investigates these coaches?  How can we stop this from happening again?

Yet millions of children started school or community sports this fall and I'd bet very few parents know about the qualifications or background of their coaches.  Did you know that volunteer coaches outnumber school employee coaches 6 to 1 in this country?  And the US has no regulation of qualifications for volunteers!  

Join in the conversation as my guest and I discuss this very real and very scary topic of coaches and other volunteers in our children's lives as well as how to open up conversations with our kids that keep us all in the know without turning our kids into "victims" or making them feel threatened.

We would love to hear your perspective on this topic too!  Call in and speak your mind or ask a question today between 11am - 12 noon EST!  The number to dial is: 877-864-4869

Deborah Roffman, author of Talk to me First and But How'd I get in There in the First Place?

 

and Dr. John Mayer,  Author of Family Fit The Parent's Mini-Manual Series
