The Week Passed By . . .

A Good Business Man But A Poor Example Of A World Leader:

After seeing Mr. Trump on the news-yet again- I have decided that I have had enough of Donald Trump. I will admit that in the beginning he was interesting. He came along and did things that were totally out side the box. He said things as they were and he isn’t owned by anyone so he is free to be his own leader without special interests in his ear. That appealed to me but as this thing has gone on he has become more of a threat than he has a leader. Now he has become a man who doesn’t understand when to let go–he has become a vindictive guy and that characteristic isn’t one that  is very constructive when negotiating with other world leaders. Sometimes you have to back off a bit to get ahead. Anyway I will not take any further interest in what he says or does.  DONE.


I continue to read this book and I continued to be amazed by it. It is full of optimism about sharing the ‘abundance’ of natural wealth on the planet and how we can use it to our distinct advantage. The book is called: ABUNDANCE  and it is a must read if you have any interest in where our children and our grand children might be heading and how we can make the planet a safer and more enduring place to live–read it–it’s worth your time

Program Design and New Material

I’m just beginning to develop some new program material for my site and I hope to have the first part of it available for public use next week. If you are a single mom or a single dad I will have some excellent interviews for you to listen to that could be just what you need to hear to help with that relationship with your child that creates stress and anxiety in your life.


Parenting Tip For The Week:

As a parent, whether that be a single mom or single dad, there are two concepts that need to be a part of any childs’ upbringing and both parents, regardless of their position either in or out of the family relationship, need to take responsibility for teaching their kids about these life lessons. They are about tolerance and acceptance.  For some these are interchangeable but I don’t quite agree. For me tolerance is about allowing for the fact that others may see things differently than I do and that I need to be OK with that as long as they don’t challenge other’s rights to their  freedom. They have a right to their opinions ,for instance, and they don’t have to see the world as I do. It is OK for both of us to see the same thing differently without having to declare a winner. If I believe that I am correct or that how I am seeing things is right for me then that is really the only thing that matters. By forcing or making someone else see things as I do is bullying and dangerous. That is often the basis for armed rebellion or world conflict.

Acceptance is about receiving something or someone at face value–not feeling the need to change something to suit my need(s). Being ‘accepted’ into a group or  being appreciative of something or someone just as they are including how someone looks, dresses, talks, thinks–as long as what they do and how they do it does not infringe upon someone elses’ right to do the same.

These are so very important and our children need to have these principles taught to them as early as possible so that they become a natural part of their behaviour as human beings and citizens into the world.
