I Never Considered My Teen Daughter Would Get Pregnant

Not My Daughter

“As parents of a young girl that we have loved, nurtured and protected to the very best of our abilities we never thought that an uplanned pregnancy was ever going to be an issue in our family. Our daughter is well behaved, she gets good grades and has never been in trouble. Where did we go wrong”?

This is the statement 90% of my clients say when they reach out to me for help. Of course we as parents never thought or wanted our kids to get in trouble or face a crises pregnancy.

If you have learned of a pregnancy, it is simply too late to prevent it or deny it. It is time to face the issue and find out the next steps that works for your daughter and the family.  If you are concerned about behavioural issues with your teen and think you may have time to prevent a crises, then by all means lets get to work. Either way it is really difficult for parents to deal with these issues without guilt, fear or anger on their own.

The way the world looks to a young girl today is very different than it looked to us growing up. This is a simple FACT. It is hard for us as parents to communicate to our kids because now more than ever because we speak different languages and we see consequenses differently.

Thanks to the media, TV and advertising there is nothing that is inappropriate or that cannot be fixed with a simple pill or purchase of a fix all product. When a young girl grows up with these messages it is next to impossible to point out dangers or circumstances that we as parents see as obvious.

Take some steps today to learn warning signs and positive communication skills to open dialog with your daughter without causing her to feel you are invading her privacy or accusing her of inappropriate behavoir.

Holidays 2011 — Birth of a New Tradition

Holidays 2011 — The Birth of a New Tradition

As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods –merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor.
This year will be different. This year Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands.
Yes there is!

It’s time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box wrapped in Chinese made wrapping paper? Everyone — yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?

Gym membership? It’s appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.

Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plunking down the Benjamines on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.

There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants — all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn’t the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this isn’t about big National chains — this is about supporting your home townAmericans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

How many people couldn’t use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?

Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day.

My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.

OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes.

Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre.

Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.

Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering City.Christmas is about caring about US.
About encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn’t imagine
THIS is the new American Christmas tradition.

Forward this to everyone on your mailing list — post it to discussion groups — throw up a post on Craigslist in the Rants and Raves section in your city — send it to the editor of your local paper and radio stations, and TV news departments. This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isn’t that what Christmas is about?
