Barry Gold, Author of 'Renaissance Dad' to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

SUFFERN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 23, 2018 / — F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote, “There are no second acts in American lives." Barry Gold intends to prove him wrong.

Gold is the author of the forthcoming memoir Renaissance Dad, which details his journey from “the youngest guy in the coronary ICU to the oldest guy with a newborn.”

“I was 62 when our son Richard was born. Now I am 71,” says Gold. “It is less difficult than it sounded to me at the time, but the experience has had some interesting twists and turns that were unexpected to me. Essentially, I've undergone a spiritual rebirth. That’s why I call it a ‘renaissance.’”

A retired scientist with a PhD in pharmacology, Gold has two children from his first marriage, a daughter and a son who are both adults.

“I just published a little piece on last November titled ‘The Obvious Question When Your Kids Are 35 Years Apart,’ says Gold. “But the obvious question is really, ‘Will I live long enough to see my son grow up and graduate college?’ Of course, I’ve been asked, ‘Is that your grandson.’ No, he's my son.”

Gold is sharing his story to prove it’s never too late to start again.

“I was at the beginning of my career when my first two were born,” recalls Gold. “I wasn't home that much. My ex-wife raised our children. Now I'm at the other end of my career and I find I share it the responsibilities equally with my wife. We are full-time parents.

“I prefer to think of it as running life backwards,” adds Gold. “I find myself trying to be more patient and spend more time teaching and concentrate on things I had no time to do with my first set of children.”

Gold says for now his son Richard, now eight, isn’t entirely aware his father is much older than his peers.

“As long as I can continue to chase him down the driveway and pick him up and run with him and wrestle with him, there's no consciousness on his part that dad's old,” says Gold.

Perhaps most interestingly, Gold and his wife were able to become parents again through the use of a surrogate.

“My wife and I we had been married eight years and we wanted to have a child. We had dozens if not hundreds of embryos in a freezer at NYU in New York City. I said, ‘Why don't we find a surrogate?’ We ended up going through a surrogacy agency and having a surrogate who was impregnated with our embryo.

“Surrogacy extends the concept of parenting. Clearly, at 71 with an eight-year-old that's outside of the biological possibilities of what could have happened, and yet here I am being a father for the second time and enjoying it thoroughly.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Barry Gold in an interview with Jim Masters on February 26th at 11am EST.

5 Valentine's Day Tips For Parents of Special Needs Children

Author Deanna Picon Offers Ways To Keep The Love Alive

These simple tips will help special needs parents revitalize their relationship and keep it strong”

— Deanna Picon

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 13, 2018 / — Maintaining a strong and rewarding marriage or relationship while raising a child with a disability is no easy task. Managing all aspects of a child’s daily living – including personal needs, school activities, therapy and medical appointments – can leave little time for oneself, much less a partner.

“Every relationship needs to be nurtured and cared for, but with the time-consuming and constant demands of having a special needs child, it often seems impossible,” said Deanna Picon, founder of Your Autism Coach, LLC and author of The Autism Parents’ Guide To Reclaiming Your Life. "With all the responsibilities and pressures, relationships are often put on the back burner, so it’s important for couples to take time for themselves.”

Parents can apply these simple tips to have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and throughout the year.

• Give yourself permission to enjoy life again. Always remember that it’s perfectly okay for you and your spouse to make time for yourselves. Special needs parents may find themselves feeling guilty for a having a good time, even if it’s only for a few hours. But there is no reason to feel guilty; a bit of enjoyment is good for you and your whole family. Every couple needs and deserves some time together to reconnect and keep the emotional and communication bonds strong.

• Schedule some couple time. It can be as simple as scheduling “fun nights” for yourselves on a weekly or monthly basis. Write it on the calendar. Enter it in your cell phone. Hire a caregiver for a few hours or ask a good friend or family member to stay with your child. Your date doesn’t have to be a 3-course meal at a 5-star restaurant. A movie or a quick bite at a local restaurant is fine. The important thing is that you’re spending quality time with each other without trying to cook dinner, tend to your child’s needs, and do the laundry at the same time. Above all, when you’re out together, do not discuss your child and/or children. Have a conversation about the two of you. It will probably be the first time you’ve done that in years.

• Have fun again. Participate in hobbies, activities and events you enjoy. Go bowling or dancing. Do some of the things you did when you were dating or try something completely different. Create new memories. Take pictures during these dates and use them as screensavers on your computers or cell phones. Put some on your refrigerator or in a frame on your nightstand. Whenever life wears you down, these memories may be all you need to get through the day.

• Express appreciation. Show your gratitude for all the wonderful or demanding things you are doing as partners and parents. Tell each other, “You’re amazing. I’d be lost without you” every once in a while. It’s always nice to hear compliments, especially from your partner. Take over a task if you can. This extra time will allow your partner to do something they enjoy but never have the time to. Thank each other for simple acts of kindness, such as letting you sleep late some mornings.

• Keep the romantic fires burning. Attention and affection for each other doesn’t have to be reserved for just date nights and special occasions like Valentine’s Day. A little extra effort on both sides can generate ongoing intimacy. A kiss goodnight, a gentle touch as you pass in the hall, a love message by e-mail or text. These little gestures can mean so much.

Hilde K. Wiemann of Generational Healing to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, December 22, 2017 / — All families have issues they can't solve alone. Why don't we get together with somebody who can help us to talk to each other without fighting or storming out the door?

Hilde K. Wiemann is the founder of Generational Healing, a coaching practice specializing in two-day intensive family healing sessions.

“My job is to help families understand that the child is not the sole issue," says Wiemann. "This is a dynamic the family has created together and that the family needs to heal together. I teach them to resolve conflicts in a positive way.”

Wiemann was introduced to this work through her experience with her own family.

“My husband and I met with a family therapist and I fell in love with this work,” says Wiemann. “I use these tools in my home for my family and my children. It changed my parenting style and it changed my marriage. I knew so many people in the same circumstances and I wanted to help them.”

In session, each family member shares their stories, what they’ve experienced and how they responded to their circumstances. There's a protocol where each person talks to family members one-on-one, while the others listen. Children are free to express their mood, anger, frustration, grief. Wiemann creates a safe environment for what is often a deeply emotional, revelatory experience.

“Sometimes, believe it or not, the parents are embarrassed to say ‘I love you’ to anyone in the family,” says Wiemann. “The session becomes very intimate, deep, and we process these different emotions and learn new skills to create a new system.”

The whole family dynamic needs to be addressed when there are issues, says Wiemann. You have to look at the system, the culture, what position each person carries, and how they communicate with each other. Do they have family meetings? Do they have some kind of plan for the highs and lows in their life?

“It’s never too late. There is always a possibility to heal,” says Wiemann. “That's where we begin.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Hilde K. Wiemann in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on December 27th at 11am EST.

10 Tips To Help Parents of Special Needs Children Celebrate The Holidays

Author Deanna Picon Offers Complimentary Holiday Tips Guide For Special Needs Parents

This holiday tips guide will help special needs parents, not only survive and manage the holidays, but actually have a good and memorable season with their family and friends”

— Deanna Picon

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 13, 2017 / — During the holiday season, parents of special needs children are often depressed and isolated. Many feel as though a spotlight is being shined on their lives, and that their families fail to measure up to the so-called "normal" families depicted in movies, TV shows and ads. This can create feelings of guilt, loneliness and stress that can take all the joy out of the holidays.

"This complimentary guide offers ten proven tips to help special needs parents during the holidays. With planning, realistic expectations and a positive attitude, parents can reduce holiday stress and create a better experience for the entire family," said Deanna Picon, founder of Your Autism Coach, LLC and author of The Autism Parents' Guide To Reclaiming Your Life. The guide is available at no cost by downloading it at

Parents can apply these and other tips from the Enjoying The Holidays With Your Special Needs Child guide:

• Don't isolate yourself. Your family and friends don't like or love you less because you have a child with special needs. In fact, they probably respect and admire you more than ever after seeing how difficult it can be to raise a child with a disability. Don't shut these people out of your life, and don't shut yourself in. Call for a quick chat or send a friendly text. Spending time with those who care for you will make you feel good and recharge your batteries.

• Ask for help when you need it. This season is the best time for seeking extra aid. Many people have time off from work and are full of the giving spirit, making this the perfect time to ask for a little help. Allowing others to assist you will also make them feel good about the holidays.

• Go where you're comfortable. Attend holiday events and functions where you and your family feel at ease. The same principle applies to entertaining at home. Invite those who understand your child's condition and support your family.

• Enjoy the gift of "personal time". When family and friends ask what you want for a gift, do yourself a big favor by requesting a few hours of "me time" or "couple time." Do something that you truly enjoy, or simply never get the chance to do in your busy life. Let them come over to take care of your son or daughter in your home. You'll know your child is safe and well-cared for, and there's no child care costs. Does life get any better than this?

• Give yourself permission to have some fun. Special needs parents may feel guilty for a having a good time over the holidays, even if it's only for a couple of hours. But there is no reason to feel guilty. A bit of enjoyment is good for you, and believe it or not, beneficial for your child. So make sure you've got child care arrangements you have confidence in, then go to that dinner with friends, that office function or that holiday party. It will do wonders for your emotional outlook to unload the weight of your responsibilities for a short time.

Warren Farrell calls Carey Linde's new book Dad: Win Without a Lawyer one of the most important books ever…

Carey Linde

Family law pioneer Carey Linde reveals 40 years of family law secrets to help divorcing parents who can’t afford a lawyer

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, October 10, 2017 / — New book ‘Dad, Win Without a Lawyer’ offers strategies to help divorcing parents survive court and become better parents

Family law pioneer Carey Linde reveals 40 years of family law secrets to help divorcing parents who can’t afford a lawyer

"Carey Linde is a brilliant attorney with not just the experience, but also the integrity, insight and courage to replace the best interests of his pocketbook with the best interests of our children. Dad: Win without a Lawyer is one of the most important books ever written for the millions of children whose dads either cannot afford to have an attorney fight for them in court or who do not wish to use their college education money to do so. "

Warren Farrell, Ph.D.
Author, Father and Child Reunion, and The Boy Crisis (co-author, John Gray)

VANCOUVER – September 29, 2017 – Just as the number of self-represented parties in child custody cases approaches 50%, comes Dad, Win Without a Lawyer, a new book by divorce lawyer Carey Linde. He pioneered shared parenting in Canada for fathers and revolutionized children's equal time with both parents.

Linde coaches fathers — or anyone caught in the psychological quicksand of any life shattering nightmare — how to recover their inner true self as the first step to succeed in the challenge ahead. The book offers up a toolbox of court tips, tactics, and strategies for fathers fighting to keep themselves meaningfully in the lives of their children.

“You wouldn't want to perform your own heart surgery, but you sure can do a great job – perhaps the best – speaking from your heart on behalf of your own children,” said Carey Linde, family lawyer and author of Dad, Win Without a Lawyer. “There is no person better at any fee. You are your own best advocate.”

Dad, Win Without a Lawyer was written with the self-represented father in mind. According to a Justice Canada Survey of Family Courts, an estimated 40% to 57% of parties in family court are self-represented. These parents are often not prepared to deal with the rigors and complexity of the court system. And almost all self-represented litigants overlook the crucial mental and psychological preparedness required to do well in a situation that, for many, is the most stressful event in their life.

“This book, though written for fathers, can also be of use to women who may find themselves in the same predicament,” said Carey Linde. “Outside of the courtroom, neither gender has a monopoly on being the most suitable parent.”

Dad, Win Without a Lawyer is organized into 4 parts. In part 1, Linde lays the groundwork to help the reader prepare themselves psychologically. Preparedness of person and mind is essential to success in court and post-separation in life. Parents have to become stronger and better than they have ever been. Part 2 delves into the inner workings of the ex-partner, their thought process, and what the reader can expect to encounter from him/her, including allegations of abuse, parental alienation, and other gotchas all too common in family law. In Parts 3 and 4, Linde explores the basics of family law, rules of the court, what judges do and don’t want to see, and legal procedures that readers will have to become familiar with. Most importantly, the author also reveals, for the first time, how the court system really works, including what the author calls the “Elephant in the Courtroom” — hidden biases that, if not navigated carefully, can threaten to undermine the entire case.

Dad, Win Without a Lawyer (322 pages, Amazon $29.99; Amazon Canada $24), available now.

About the Author
A lawyer for 40 years, Carey Linde pioneered the movement for equal-time shared parenting in the courts. He has been fighting for this idea before phrases such as “co-parenting” and “shared parenting” became popular.

Carey is a founding member of Canadian Lawyers for Shared Parenting. He is a past member of the Trial Lawyers’ Association of British Columbia, the American Trial Lawyers’ Association, Vancouver M.E.N., and of Seattle M.E.N.. He obtained his B.A. in psychology and obtained a law degree from the University of British Columbia, where he was the acting president of the student body 1968-69 and president of his graduating class in law school 1970.

Addiction Warriors A New Doc Series and Educational Tour

Parents and families don't know what to do anymore. They are scared to death to lose their loved ones. They have tried everything and nothing is working.

Parents and families don't know what to do anymore. They are scared to death to lose their loved ones. They have tried everything and nothing is working.”

— Executive Producer Mark Ehrenkranz

MORRISTOWN, NJ, UNITED STATES, October 3, 2017 / — An ongoing episodic doc series is being developed with an accompanying tour that will feature game-changing addiction warriors taking radically different approaches to the malady. Addiction Warriors will expose the latest methods and the need for a paradigm shift with causal champions. The fundamental difference being non-judgemental acceptance versus fear and resistance. The funding for this project is through supportive donations by those who want to help it happen via

The pursuits are being accomplished via a strategic and fiscal sponsorship partnership with Creative Visions. They inspire and empower worldwide creative activism. Kathy Eldon and her team has established a strong network of artists and media makers who are telling critical stories about problems that need to be solved. They support activists to pilot innovative arts and education programs affecting change.

The malady here has little to do with the substance or habit, whether it be sex, gambling, food, work or money. It has a lot to do with modernity, social pressures, cultural malaise, and substitutions for feeling trapped, isolated or riddled with anxiety. It has much more to do with fear, alienation, and overwhelming stress or loss. Psychological imbalances, brain illness, and overall discomfort in one’s skin cause individuals to self-medicate to escape, be more in control, and or simply wanting to feel better.

No one plans to get addicted from natural desires to get high, “cut the edge” or from to blowing off steam with a temporary escape. What ensues is the phenomenon of wanting, and the inevitable brain alterations which render habit, cravings and then the need. Millennials and Gen Z’ers may be particularly susceptible due to helicopter parenting, device addiction, and political correctness where everyone is a “winner.” Tempering feelings along with the intensity and increased pressures of the world severely challenges healthy coping skills and healthy dealing with rejection and disappointment.

The fact is that teenagers will experiment for a multitude of reasons and will want to experience forbidden fruits no matter what. Youths from ages 11-26 are undergoing emotional maturity and their brains are still forming. They are wired for indestructability, share a cavalier attitude, and know better than anyone older than them. They are coded to share a different reality which rejects healthy fear, loves drama, dangerous feats, and outrageous stories. Parents forbidding them to try drugs simply does not work. What they fill their minds with on-line only lowers the bar for further unhealthy behavior.

The visual style will be fast paced with contemporary youthful elements for maximum engagement. This doc series will consolidate and stylishly uncover the causes, cutting-edge research, and treatment of addiction from a street savvy point of view. The value of one addict helping another is unparalleled. The creation and execution of this content will directly appeal to audiences via a deeply seated connection. The material will be developed by recovering addicts with longtime sobriety, doctors, treatment professionals, recovering families, and other experts in the field. Everyone, especially parents, teachers, law enforcement and employers need to know the truths if their skills are to be productive. The activation of a touring road-show will be an effective method of outreach and education.

Tales of Modern Motherhood This Sh*t Just Got Real

Pam Levin

Opens Off-Broadway at United Solo Festival on Theatre Row October 2nd and 6th

Funny, endearing ‘Tales of Modern Motherhood’ explores reluctance of parenthood

This one woman show is witty, entertaining, poignant, real, raw, all in one; in short, it’s everything fine theatre should be.”

— Bonnie Priever Curtain Up

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, September 27, 2017 / — Tales of Modern Motherhood: This Sh*t Just Got Real, written and performed by Pam Levin, is a brutally funny comedy about the uncertainties of becoming a parent, the FEAR of being a parent, and the reservations of why she didn’t just settle for a dog.

Director, Mark Hatfield said Levin’s show is “like lassoing a tornado, wrestling an octopus and juggling chainsaws…then she whiplashes you with tender moments that will melt your heart…”

Pam is a native of Northeast Philadelphia and a veteran in the one-woman show genre. She toured the world with the AWARD-WINNING show, The Quiet Room and performed In My Own X-Rated Words, written by Fredrica Duke both OFF Broadway and in Los Angeles. Tales of Modern Motherhood is her first original work and has had a phenomenal run in Los Angeles, playing to sold out houses ending in standing ovations. Curtain Up says: "Pam Levin is a force to be reckoned with, leaving a legacy, sure to resonate and ring true with all the women (and men in their lives)."

The show makes it's East Coast Premiere at New York’s United Solo Festival on Theatre Row, October 2nd (SoldOut) and October 6th. Be sure to check the United Solo Festival website for added performances.

Tales of Modern Motherhood This Sh*t Just Got Real opens January 6th, 2018 at Whitefire Theatre in Los Angeles as the featured production at Solofest 2018.
