Known for helping busy parents avoid screen time struggles by providing engaging screen free play materials, Johnson’s new line consists of her favorite and most popular I spy bottles.

For the first time, Johnson has created an entire product line of I spy bottles ranging from DIY kits to bottles designed to aid in letter and number recognition. Created to be portable and quiet, Johnson’s fresh collection contains high quality interesting trinkets that children love to look for. Two different sizes give busy parents the flexibility to slip a smaller bottle into a purse or backpack for some quiet time on the go, or to use the larger bottle for some down time at home.

The collection will be exclusively sold on the website wondersjourney.com where the limited products are expected to sell out by the end of the season.

Bottles also come in a variety of rice colors, to create the perfect bottle for each little learner, regardless of skill or gender.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), explained by North Carolina attorney Janet P. Reed in a new article

Alternative dispute resolution refers to dispute settlement outside of court. In a new article, Janet Reed, Esq. explains some of the issues in layman’s terms.

ADR processes are a compelling alternative to court trials. They not only allow for quick settlement of disputes and are less costly, but also increase the chances of finding a solution…”

— Janet Pittman Reed, lawyer in North Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are you stuck in a dispute, but do not want to get into the hassle of a court case? You should go for an alternative dispute resolution! Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR, is an umbrella term used for methods of dispute settlement outside of the courtroom, with the help of a neutral third party.

Since ADR programs are more expeditious and less costly than court cases, they present viable alternative solutions for dispute settlement. Attorney Janet Reed, based in North Carolina, has published a comment that reviews related issues. The complete article will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

In view of the increasing costs of lawsuits and the time it takes to settle a dispute through litigation, ADR programs present viable alternative solutions. They are not only more expeditious and less costly, but also allow for more creative solutions that may be outside the court’s jurisdiction.

Unlike court cases, which are generally adversarial, ADR programs allow the disputing parties to better understand each other’s position. As a result, they are more likely to collaborate and reach a mutually acceptable solution.

Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods

While there are many ways to settle disputes outside of the court, mediation and arbitration are the most commonly used methods.

What is Mediation?

Performed by a neutral third-party – a trained individual – mediation is an informal process to facilitate negotiations between the disputing parties and help them reach a consensus. The role of the mediator is to help both the parties break the deadlock, explore their options and find a mutually agreeable solution. For this, the mediator may talk to the involved parties together or separately.

While mediators can facilitate the process by providing options for possible solutions or by guiding the disputants, they cannot enforce anything. Also, they have to stay impartial throughout the process. Although the ADR method can be used for all non-criminal cases, it is generally preferred when the disputing parties have some kind of a relationship between them and they do not want to ruin it. Since a mediator can help the parties communicate without getting emotions involved, they are highly likely to reach consensus in nondestructive manners.

Mediation can be a better choice than litigation in case of a dispute between business partners, family members, neighbors, landlords and tenants, and labor issues with the management. It has also been increasingly used for divorce cases and to settle issues related to child custody.

Since mediation is generally voluntary (it is mandatory in some jurisdictions) and non-binding, both the disputing parties should be willing to negotiate, cooperate, and/or compromise. Mediation will not be effective otherwise.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is a simplified version of a court trial. Headed by a neutral individual or a panel, the process of arbitration involves hearing the claims of both sides, reviewing evidence, and then issuing a decision. Unlike mediation, the verdict issued by the arbitrator, called arbitral award, can be binding or non-binding.

In case of binding arbitration, the disputants lose their right to a court trial and have to accept the decision of the arbitrator. In non-binding arbitration, the disputing parties can go for court trial if the arbitrator’s decision is unacceptable for them.

While the process sounds like similar to court proceedings, arbitration gives more power to the disputants. In arbitration, the disputing parties mutually decide the guidelines of the process as well as choose the arbitrator. In cases where both the sides do not agree on one arbitrator, each party selects one person. The two arbitrators will then elect another individual. This is done to ensure neutrality of the decision maker. The disputants also have the choice to either hire lawyers to speak for them or they can choose to present their cases themselves. Arbitration hearings generally last for a few days to maximum a week.

Final Word

ADR processes are a compelling alternative to court trials. They not only allow for quick settlement of disputes and are less costly, but also increase the chances of finding a solution that is acceptable to both the disputing parties. While there are many different methods of alternative dispute resolution, such as case conferencing, neutral evaluation, parenting coordination, and conciliation, mediation and arbitration are most commonly used.

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt reveals benefits of walking in the blessing of God

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt

Faith Christian Center's Dr. Gene Lingerfelt offers insight into the Bible, God's blessing, and His wonderful plan for every man and woman.

ARLINGTON , TEXAS, USA, July 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “God has a wonderful plan for everyone’s life, no matter their background or what they might be facing,” according to Dr. Gene Lingerfelt, founding and senior pastor of Faith Christian Center in Arlington, Texas. “God wants every man and woman to be saved. If you will give your life to Him, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and submit your life to the Word of God, you can experience God’s best and walk in the blessings of God.”

“Many people have been wrongly taught about God. They’ve wrongly heard God is out to get them or God is doing awful, evil things, like giving people cancer,” explains Dr. Lingerfelt. “God has been misrepresented for a long time and that’s why in America so many people have turned away from God.” “They have been wrongly taught God wants them to be a failure or that God is opposed to their success.” Dr. Gene Lingerfelt explains, “Nothing could be further from the truth!”

According to Dr. Lingerfelt, “God is a good God and He has a good plan for each and every person.” “That plan will not automatically happen in your life, however,” explains Dr. Lingerfelt. “There is a success pattern for life in the Bible, God’s Word, but every man or woman must make the choice to embrace that pattern for success.”

“Action is often the missing ingredient for success,” explains Dr. Lingerfelt. “Some people take no action and too many are taking the wrong actions. The key to success is to DO what the Bible says to DO and to live your life according to the success pattern we see in the Bible.”

According to Dr. Gene Lingerfelt, “God wants every individual to fulfill their full potential in life. Because of what Jesus did for us on the cross, we can be forgiven of our sins, we can become a part of the family of God, and we can live this life as the sons and daughters of God.”

“In the Bible, it's possible to learn how to walk in the blessing of God,” Dr. Lingerfelt explains. At Faith Christian Center, he and son Austin help individuals to discover God's plan.

“We teach them how to apply the Bible to their everyday lives, so they can walk in the blessing of God,” adds Faith Christian Center co-founder Dr. Lingerfelt. “We want to see everyone be a success in life!”

Faith Christian Center is a non-denominational, Full Gospel church in Arlington, Texas, located on 73 beautiful acres. Dr. Gene Lingerfelt and his son Austin share what they call a positive, motivational message in every service on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

According to the pastor, the Bible covers every subject–life, family and marriage, parenting, child-raising, finances, and more. “Every answer for life,” he claims, “is in the Bible.”

“God has truly given us,” Dr. Lingerfelt adds, wrapping up, “a success formula, in His Word – the Bible.”

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt and his wife Sue founded Faith Christian Center more than 35 years ago. After 40 plus years of marriage and 35 plus years of faithfully pastoring Faith Christian Center, Dr. Gene and Sue Lingerfelt have earned a reputation for practical and relevant teaching from the Bible. Dr. Gene Lingerfelt is also known as a pastor to men and he is well-known for his teachings and books on finances and success. For more information, visit FaithChristianCenter.com.

Citizens Commission on Human Rights Exhibit Sounds the Alarm on Increase in Psychiatric Drugging of Infants and Toddlers

Visitors study one of the displays at the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death Exhibit in Old Sacramento

Visitors study one of the displays at the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death Exhibit

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights brings traveling exhibit to Sacramento to warn parents of sharp increase in psychiatric drugging of infants & toddlers.

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alarmed by the fact that more than 1 million 0-5 year olds in the U.S. are prescribed psychiatric drugs, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) of Sacramento took their message directly to local parents. CCHR, a non-profit, non-political, non-religious mental health watchdog group, brought its traveling exhibit to Old Sacramento over the 4th of July weekend with the aim of warning thousands of parents about the dangers of these drugs.

The exhibit, “Psychiatry: An Industry of Death” provides extensive documentaries that highlight psychiatric violations of Human Rights done under the guise of help.

“It is especially appropriate to host the exhibit this weekend when we contemplate and celebrate our freedoms in this country and renew our commitment to preserve them,” said Jim Van Hill, Executive Director of Sacramento’s CCHR chapter. “The increase in drugging of toddlers and even infants, is extremely dangerous and is just one of psychiatry’s violations of Human Rights.”

Despite the fact that psychiatric drugs are so powerful that they carry over 380 international drug regulatory warnings, IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, reported that 274,804 babies, 370,778 toddlers and 500,948 preschoolers have been prescribed them in the U.S. The report also found that 1,400 infants were on ADHD drugs.[1]

This sharp increase is incomprehensible given the lack of evidence that they are even remotely safe for this age group. Dr. Thomas Insel, director of the National Institute of Mental Health stated, “There are not any good scientific data to support the widespread use of these medicines in children, particularly in young children where the scientific data are even more scarce.” [2]

The drugs being prescribed to children include ADHD drugs, antidepressants, antipsychotics and anti-anxiety drugs. They have been known to cause serious adverse effects such as heart problems, psychosis, death, suicide attempts, cardiovascular problems, and addiction. This is just a small sampling of the serious effects these drugs can have.[3]

Claudia M. Gold, M.D. believes the appropriate approach to raising children who are encountering difficulties is to parent them, not to drug them.

Dr. Gold said “Mental Health Disorder are big words to put on a small person… Based on my years of clinical experience as a pediatrician, together with evidence offered by contemporary research in developmental psychology, genetics and neuroscience, I believe that supporting parents’ efforts to understand their young child’s experience of the world, to help him or her to make sense of whatever particular vulnerabilities he or she has, without labelling him or her with a disorder, is a better approach.”[4]

Children have never been diagnosed and drugged at the rate they are now and society did fine in raising its children. Why are psychiatrists and doctors suddenly insisting that old-fashioned parenting is insufficient? Especially since no “medical” or scientific test exists that proves any child has a “mental disorder” or “mental illness.” In fact, the tests are subjective and based on a checklist of symptoms.[5]

According to Dr. Thomas Dorman, and many other physicians, the reason is a morally bankrupt strategy that the psychiatric industry is using to line its pockets with insurance payouts.

“In short, the whole business of creating psychiatric categories of ‘disease,’ formalizing them with consensus, and subsequently ascribing diagnostic codes to them, which in turn leads to their use for insurance billing, is nothing but an extended racket furnishing psychiatry a pseudo-scientific aura. The perpetrators are, of course, feeding at the public trough,” stated Dr. Thomas Dorman, internist and member of the Royal College of Physicians of the UK, Fellow, Royal College of Physicians of Canada. [6]

“This harmful drugging of children is criminal,” Van Hill said. “What better time than the 4th of July to make people aware of this threat to their children’s freedom and the future of our country. Let’s work together to start regulating psychiatry and develop saner, safer approaches to mental health.”

CCHR was co-founded in 1969 by the Church of Scientology and Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus Dr. Thomas Szasz at a time when patients were being warehoused in institutions and stripped of all constitutional, civil and human rights.

Catherine Gruener of Gruener Consulting and Encouragement Parenting to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

ELMHURST, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, July 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the famous words of E. E. Cummings, “It takes courage to grow up and become who we really are.” Woefully, since early childhood most of us lose ourselves in the journey of life identifying with others instead of what’s blooming inside our hearts and souls. Unbeknownst to us, we lose all sense of purpose and ability to be genuinely happy. One exceptional woman is changing all that through her incredibly impactful work.

Catherine is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, Certified Positive Discipline Educator and owner of Gruener Consulting and Encouragement Parenting.

“In the counseling division of my practice I utilize person-centered, evidence-based methods and Adlerian depth therapy which are remarkably effective,” says Catherine. “In my Encouraging Parenting division my evidence based strategy focuses on the Empowerment of parents through experiential trainings, workshops, seminars, and online classes. My objective is to expand my teachings so everyone can have a wonderfully fulfilling and joyful life.”

In her early youth, Catherine decided to go into neuropsychology because she yearned to understand the human soul and how our brains makes us who we are authentically. Catherine strongly believes there is a huge distinction between our soul and brains.

“I envision myself as more of an educator,” says Catherine. “As an avid problem solver I instill in people how to resolve issues and teach them the problem solving process.”

According to Catherine, people are born into the world with certain unique strengths but as we mature we lose ourselves in other people’s identities and whimsy taking us further away from who we are genuinely are meant to be.

“My objective is to help get people back to their true natures with extremely effective parenting tools and strategies that are heart centered,” says Catherine. ““What I have learned over the years is the most monumental impact I can make is inspiring and reassuring parents and their children to profoundly connect with one another by recognizing the value of our true selves.”

Catherine helps parents remove blocks that have obstructed their way opening the door to their own gifts. That way they can more effortlessly contribute to the world the way they are intended to, creating harmony within themselves and the universe.

“Through parenting we help kids tap into their unique skills and capabilities that is distinctively theirs,” says Catherine. “Some kids excel at writing, reading, math, or the art, some are caretakers, others are comedians. Value and embrace who you are because we need all of these traits in our society in order for us to thrive as a whole. Recognize how we belong and how are we significant.”

Through her invaluable workshops, Catherine stresses the importance of encouraging kids to feel confident enough to be able to open up to their parents wholeheartedly, so they can actually help guide them through life’s journey. It’s about solving problems cohesively.

“Healthy relationships between parents and their children offer further opportunity to heal,” says Catherine. “When we are everything we need to be we are happy, healthy, and whole and that’s what I do with people. I help them get back to who they truly are. I literally have the coolest job in the world.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Catherine Gruener in interviews with Doug Lewellyn on Monday, July 8th at 12 p. m. EST and with Jim Masters on Monday, July 15th at 12 p. m. EST

Terry “Nothing is Impossible” Hitchcock Inspires attendees at Monthly Luncheon in Clearwater

Guest speaker Terry Hitchcock detailed his account of inspiring others to take action at the CCV Charity Networking Luncheon, advising nonprofit leaders on how to motivate others to contribute to their causes.

Changing the society that surrounds us for the better is not a one-person job. Knowing how to rouse others into contributing is pivotal for a nonprofit and it’s done, in part, by setting the example.”

— Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center

CLEARWATER, FL, US, June 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On June 26th, fifteen Tampa Bay nonprofit organizations gathered at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center for its monthly Charity Networking luncheon. Terry Hitchcock, motivational speaker and author, whose life was the subject of a documentary “Nothing is Impossible”, narrated by Billy Bob Thornton, advised the audience on how to inspire others to share in their nonprofits’ missions.

The luncheon began at 11:30 am inside the café-style gathering space of the CCV Center. Guests were invited to socialize with other nonprofits to promote the development of future partnerships.

Michael Soltero, manager of the CCV Center, served as the MC. He welcomed the attendees to the luncheon, before turning the stage over to the keynote speaker.

Hitchcock opened by giving some history of his accomplishments in the field of nonprofit work. He spoke about using his experience as a single parent to inspire others. He described his 2000-mile run in 75 consecutive days to bring about awareness of single-parenting and prompting others to take action.

Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center said, “Changing the society that surrounds us for the better is not a one-person job. Knowing how to rouse others into contributing is pivotal for a nonprofit and it’s done, in part, by setting the example. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard summed this up as, ‘There are many people one influences. The influence can be good or it can be bad. Others around one cannot help but be influenced by this, no matter what they say.’”

The luncheon concluded with Michael Soltero inviting guests to stand up and deliver a short introduction of themselves and their respective nonprofit organization. The volunteers and charity leaders then exchanged contact information and planned out new community projects together.

Through sponsorship of the Church of Scientology, the CCV Center offers its facilities as a meeting space or event venue at no cost to nonprofit organizations in order to further their help into their communities.

Stress Relief The Modern Way: Articles That Use Humor, Connections, and Personal Reflection to Boost Your Mental Health

Stress relief through peer support at Supportiv, The Support Network

Supportiv, the peer support network for getting stuff off your chest anonymously, announces its latest article collection for relieving stress.

We wanted to create resources that help people see reflections of their own struggles in others – to show how helpful it is to not feel alone.”

— Pouria Mojabi, Co-Founder, Supportiv

BERKELEY, CA, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Supportiv, the peer support network that matches users into real-time, topic-specific peer groups for anonymous peer support on any life struggle –from anxiety to burnout, childhood issues to daily life struggles– announces its latest article collection, sharing modern perspectives and crowdsourced tips to relieve all kinds of stress.

Helena Plater-Zyberk, Supportiv Co-Founder, discusses a large root cause of stress: “Stress accumulates easily when we ignore parts of our lives or ourselves. Holding in emotions allows them to build on each other. So when we stop addressing personal sources of stress, we invite feelings like depression, anxiety, or burnout.”

Pouria Mojabi, Co-Founder, continues: “On the other hand, when we see our struggles in a relatable, funny, or at least manageable light, we can grapple with them more effectively. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and shut down when you think your problems are unusual or unstoppable. So we wanted to create resources that help people see reflections of their own struggles in others – to show how helpful it is to not feel alone.”

Whether it’s learning self-management skills to keep on top of daily life, how to connect more authentically with others, or how to use your emotions to feel better, you’ll find tools in this collection to relieve stress and feel a little better about life.

Key topics covered include:

Best-Selling Documentary – The Long Goodbye: The Kara Tippetts Story – Launches on Netflix

Kara Tippetts and The Long Goodbye

The Long Goodbye shares the heartfelt, hope-filled story of a young woman thrust into the national spotlight after a terminal cancer diagnosis

I want more of what Kara Tippetts had.”

— Ann Voskamp

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — THE LONG GOODBYE: The Kara Tippetts Story, a heartfelt story a woman thrust into the national spotlight through a terminal cancer diagnosis, is available now on Netflix. The film spent time at the #1 spot on the Amazon Documentaries chart and remained in the Top 10 for over 6 weeks after it’s release.

Kara Tippetts was a pastor’s wife, mother of four young children, and creator of a popular mommy-blog focused on parenting with kindness. Kara already had a loyal following when, at just 38 years old, she began facing and processing a cancer diagnosis on the site. Her blog and subsequent best-selling books became hallowed ground as people around the world were touched by her faith, honesty, and candor.

With this incredibly raw documentary, Kara allowed the world to walk with her as she chronicled first what it meant to be a young wife and mother battling a disease, and then ultimately what it meant to live and die with love and dignity.

Shot in real-time and featuring Kara’s own vlogs and cell phone videos, this film offers an intimate, vulnerable look into a dying woman’s last days. The film also features Kara’s friends-including Ann Voskamp, Joanna Gaines, Ellie Holcomb, President of Focus on the Family Jim Daly, Dianne Derby from KKTV, and bonus features with Joni Eareckson Tada.

During her journey with cancer, Kara wrote and published three books, including Just Show Up: The Dance of Walking Through Suffering Together; And It was Beautiful: Celebrating Life in the Midst of the Long Good-Bye; and The Hardest Peace: Expecting Grace in the Midst of Life’s Hard, which won the 2015 ECPA Inspirational Book of the Year award.

Additionally, Kara was thrust into the spotlight when a letter she penned to Brittany Maynard went viral. In the letter, Kara asked Brittany to reconsider her choice to move to Oregon to participate in an assisted suicide. Kara’s was a gentle, hope-filled message that could only be shared between two young women whose lives would end too soon.

Kara’s vulnerability had an incredible impact on tens of thousands of people and grew that community of support in surprising ways. Faith influencers from around the globe began to find ways to assist Kara by sharing her posts, sending personal messages, serving the family’s needs, as well as just becoming her friend.

When asked about Kara’s impact, influencers featured in the film stated:

“The impact of her life was huge. I’m blessed to know her.” – Joanna Gaines

“I want more of what Kara Tippetts had.” – Ann Voskamp,

“Sharing this time with her family was nothing short of a holy experience.” – Sofia Lyons, filmmaker.

“I think Kara and I both understand that deep suffering stretches the capacity of the soul.” – Joni Eareckson Tada

This included filmmakers Jay and Sofia Lyons, who discovered Kara’s story through a Facebook note from a friend. The couple simply felt led to do something for her. Sofia states how God led them down a path to create the film by a series of ‘breadcrumbs’, “First, we just wanted to do something special for Kara and her family. This evolved into creating a 7-minute video about her life, which ultimately opened up a conversation about fully documenting her last few months on earth.”

THE LONG GOODBYE also showcases footage from a house concert performed by Ellie Holcomb, a new arrangement of one of Kara’s favorite hymns by Selah, and an original song by Travis Cottrell. Additionally, one of the filmmakers, Sofia J., contributes 2 original songs written for the film including “I’ll See You Again.”

In association with Freely, THE LONG GOODBYE: The Kara Tippetts Story was created by Jay Lyons Productions and is distributed through Ocean Avenue Entertainment. THE LONG GOODBYE is available now on Netflix. http://karatippettsdocumentary.com/

By bringing kids better stories, we’re helping parents raise better children.”

— Jay Huffman, Integral App Studio CEO

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — There are apps that can help you get to where you’re going and apps that can help you learn new skills. Now, there’s an app designed to improve the cognitive development of children through reading.

Storied is now available on the App Store and the Play Store. The app (designed by Integral App Studio) is a compendium of hundreds of original stories penned by top children’s writers from across the globe. Whether parents want a fun bedtime story to read to their kids or a story that helps reinforce a lesson they are already trying to teach, Storied is there to help with a searchable database of content approved by child development specialists.

“Reading to kids for just five minutes a day has been scientifically shown to stimulate language and literacy centers of children’s brains,” says Integral App Studio CEO Jay Huffman. “It’s also been strongly suggested that children who are engaged in the reading process seem to benefit more strongly from the activity. Storied helps parents find new, fun and engaging content that will be relevant to the lessons they’re already trying to teach their kids. By bringing kids better stories, we’re helping parents raise better children.”

The app is designed with kids ages 3-11 in mind and is easy enough to use so that kids can read to themselves using their parents’ tablets or phones as they grow older. The app also has a customizable bookshelf so parents can create reading lists for their kids. Storied will also have an option for users to submit their stories to the platform for author credit. The app allows parents to purchase individual stories or have unlimited reading through monthly or annual subscriptions.

Jay Huffman is available for interviews about Storied. To schedule an interview, contact Jay at jay@integralappstudio.com.
