JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Law Office of Janet Pittman Reed announced today that principal attorney Janet Reed is setting up a new legal blog https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/ which will focus primarily on Family and Domestic Relations Law, how to locate information, and how the law is changing.

“With all the sometimes confusing information regarding Family Law, I felt that I could help explain the important issues at hand to families in need” said Janet Pittman Reed. “I have more than a decade of experience working in this area, and can help people understand the issues before a dispute develops, and obtain initial information when they need legal help.”

Family law does not only encompass marriage, children, divorce, and marital assets, but also implicates tax and retirement issues. The procedures are very complex and hard to understand for a layperson.

Ms. Reed is planning to inform affected families so that they are better prepared for what awaits them in a family law proceeding, such as divorce or child custody.

Ms. Reed explains that she has noticed in her practice that “many affected families do not know that the court system and non-profit organizations provides a lot of support. For example, the North Carolina Judicial Branch website has several videos that explain family law proceedings, including a video on Family Court Orientation and a new video on Parent Education, Access and Visitation.”

This is based on Session Law 1999-237 House Bill 168 Section 17.16, which authorized the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (NCAOC) to establish an educational program for parents who are parties to a custody or visitation action and to administer any parent education. These parent education programs make divorcing parents or parents living in separate homes aware of the needs of their children. The informative video that the court system provides, “The Most Important Job,” provides guidance for parents from professionals as well as from the child's perspective. Family courts provide this type of education locally according to their local rules. To accompany this video, the court system has published a handbook, The Most Important Job: Parenting Information for Families Living Apart (North Carolina Parent Education Handbook). Ms. Reed believes that such information should be provides more widely to lessen the stress and burden on families, and she will contribute to that.

Ms. Reed also explains that often multi-state issues are involved that make this field of law even more complex. “For example, family law is sometimes implicated in child custody cases when you have a spouse from a different State. When one parent takes the child to another State, or from another to North Carolina, this may result in a legal dispute as to in which State the child should live. Other areas of broader implications are marriages with spouses from different states, or where one spouse was married before.”

Janet Pittman Reed is planning to inform the public about such available information, procedures and developments so that any family law matter can proceed more smoothly and put less stress on the family and particularly children.

Dr. Gregg Jantz Coaches Parents Through the Anxieties of the Smartphone Generation

Dr. Gregg Jantz

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, November 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Gregory Jantz, a pioneer in holistic care with decades of experience under his belt, tackles the heavy subject of parenting kids with smartphones in his book Ten Tips for Parenting the Smartphone Generation. Smartphone use, as Dr. Gregg Jantz shows us, is a leading cause of anxiety and depression, and an opportunity for parents to help out.

Something around 73% of American teens own a smartphone, and almost all the rest have some sort of access to tablets or the internet.(1) And according to new studies, Children spend an average of over 7 hours a day on digital media.

While smartphones deliver a powerful computer that teens can keep in their pockets to access all the information they need, it’s not without its hazards. For one, teens are subjected to more high school interactions and are potentially at a greater risk of bullying, but there’s also more attachment to social media and a growing habit of endless online browsing, too.

In his book Ten Tips for Parenting the Smartphone Generation, Dr. Gregg Jantz discusses the potential harm of overexposure and healthy ways parents can restrict usage.

“The smartphone revolution really began with the iPhone back in 2008, didn’t it? If we look back to the years between 2008-2010, we can see the growing statistical shift in teen anxiety and depression,” Dr. Gregory Jantz says.

The iPhone saturated the market in the immediate years after its release in 2008 so that it was a household item by 2011. A study reports that between the years 2010-2015, signs of anxiety and depression in teens soared 33%.(2) Suicide and suicide attempts among teens also saw a surge. Parents are likely to face a little conflict when getting between teen and their smartphones, but as Dr. Gregg Jantz demonstrates in his book, it’s a necessary battle.

“Sometimes, the only thing preventing kids from enjoying their lives to the fullest, of letting go of their social pressures and grade school anxieties, is limiting exposure to smartphones,” Dr. Gregory Jantz says.

In his book, Dr. Gregg Jantz gives parents ten Bible-based and well-researched ways to help protect kids as they use technology and are exposed to today’s media. He believes that one of the biggest challenges for parents today is helping their kids avoid overexposure, and stresses that parents become the example-setters in their kids’ lives. He also provides a few methods of monitoring and limiting the information your child is exposed to.

At 113 pages, his book is a short and insightful dissertation on what it is to parent children who have access to the far reaches of information online through smartphones. And seeing as smartphones are so commonplace (and don’t appear to be falling out of trend anytime soon), parents with children of any age can benefit from Dr. Gregg Jantz’s profound book.

Karen L. Kristjanson to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, November 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Divorce is a change you can't anticipate as a child, and the emotional upheaval that comes with it can be extremely difficult to navigate.

According to research, outcomes for children in terms of their emotional growth and school performance are substantially better when they have both parents involved in their lives.

Co-parenting is when both parents are involved at least a third of the time in their children's lives following a divorce. It's not just a weekend thing, it's every day. Both parents continue to play an active and full role.

According to Karen L. Kristjanson, effective co-parenting is one of the best gifts separated parents can give to their children. She co-parented her two sons with their dad and learned much along the way.

Karen L. Kristjanson is the author of Co-Parenting From the Inside Out: Voices of Moms and Dads, which brings together real life co-parenting stories to inspire separated parents and help them understand co-parenting better, offering practical tips and tools that directly benefit families.

Co-Parenting from the Inside Out is a collection of 35 stories with real moms and dads in diverse circumstances, showing them making choices, sometimes struggling, and often growing. Their stories offer insights into wise decision-making, as well as practical strategies that strengthen families.

“I wanted people who read the book to recognize themselves in the stories,” says Kristjanson. “I wanted to be as inclusive as possible, so parents can see that they are not alone as they navigate their feelings and build a future.”

The answer to how to co-parent, says Kristjanson, depends on who you are, who your partner is, how many kids you have, what their ages are. Your physical health, your mental health, your financial health, and your level of self-management skills like emotional awareness will determine how well you co-parent, and the same thing goes for your ex-partner

Of course, people don't generally end a marriage unless there is something really big, like a betrayal or profound unhappiness. So there are usually feelings of anger, hurt, and loss and sadness that make co-parenting seem impossible, even when you know it’s the right thing to do for your children.

“If you want to co-parent, you're saying, ‘It'll be better for our kids if they have both of us in their lives,’ but sometimes that means you need to work cooperatively with somebody you’re more angry with than anyone in the world,’” says Kristjanson. “What I found was that the people who grappled with those feelings and let themselves grieve what they were losing and what they had lost were way more successful moving forward.”

While pain exists in most stories, there is also hope. Co-parents often feel that they have become more confident, compassionate, and parent better than ever before.

Karen also offers co-parenting coaching through her coaching practice Beyond Limits Coaching.

CUTV News Radio will feature Karen L. Kristjanson in an interview with Jim Masters on November 8th at 2pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

WE NEED A DISCUSSION ON OPRAH'S PLATFORM ABOUT THE TRUE NATURE OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.

Wisdom Education is Brain Health Education; Where Wisdom Land is a Start...

Our Education System Has Cutting Edge Mind Education While Brain Education Is Under The Radar Screen.

Instead of tasting wisdom in old age live it up ASAP.

Why wait for old age to taste pure life when you can do it now.

All the Attributes of Wisdom Are Generated by Humulity.

Become Humble to Become Wise.

While our experts have correctly defined the ills of society being due to the lack of emotional intelligence; they have misunderstood the very nature of EI.

We need to wake up the world to the true nature of EI. EI is the smoke where emotional health(EH) is the fire. Taking care of EH will create EI effortlessly.”

— Sajid Khan

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, November 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Oprah is a mother to us all. So it is hard for me to say this but it has to be done for the greater good. Oprah has to wake up to the fact that all these experts that she is promoting are focused on fixing the symptoms of the ills of society rather than taking care of the actual disease.

Emotional intelligence is a quality to be desired, pursued and achieved. Unfortunately the way our experts try to define and create emotional intelligence is half-baked.

They have wrongly defined emotional intelligence as a stand-alone, independent entity when it is a secondary entity. Emotional Intelligence is a fragrance that stems from an emotionally healthy brain. When our experts try to teach emotional intelligence it is like trying to improve the fragrance on its own. Just as to improve the fragrance, the plant has to be improved, to create emotional intelligence the brain has to be healed. All these books on trying to educate the mind on emotional intelligence are an exercise in failure. Emotional intelligence education is wise-parenting for the young and brain-therapy for the rest.

The problem stems from the fact that our experts have still not defined the difference between brain and mind. In fact, the mind itself is couched in fuzziness to the extent that there is no topic explaining the mind in High School psychology textbooks. When the leading expert Steven Pinker wrote a book on the brain, he did not even mention the mind even once! To improve professional intelligence lessons and textbooks are rightly needed. To improve emotional intelligence it is the brain that has to be healed. The focus of our experts has to shift from trying to teach the mind emotional intelligence to healing the brain by making the brain emotionally healthy.

Any wonder we have 44,000 books on happiness and not one hardly makes you happy. It is because all these books are focused on teaching the mind happiness. The mind itself is the fragrance of the brain and so it is the brain that has to be healed!

One can be the best of the best and yet not up to the mark. Oprah has the opportunity to correct this. She can invite her experts to discuss with me this unfortunate state of affairs.

While our experts have correctly defined the ills of society being due to the lack of emotional intelligence; they have misunderstood the very nature of emotional intelligence.

The first step to creating an emotionally intelligent society is to correctly define the very nature of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is defined by its attributes, it is like defining a tree by its fruit. So the experts are defining and trying to create the fruit instead of defining and creating the tree.

It is like trying to create fruit without cultivating the tree. The tree of emotional intelligence is the emotionally healthy brain. Creating emotionally healthy brains will generate emotional intelligence effortlessly. The focus of Oprah’s experts has to shift from emotional intelligence to emotional health.

Every single day the world continues to suffer from the ignorance of our experts and nothing changes.

The future of mankind is in the hands of our celebrities like Oprah. They have such a big opportunity to transform the world into a wise world. Yet they continue to promote false data.
Oprah’s fans hang on her every word as if it is the golden rule but alas she is misleading them into absorbing half-baked knowledge. Her experts are leading her fans to the wrong destination.

The world is hurting so bad and yet Oprah continues to push half-baked knowledge. She is doing great but still not good enough, she can do much better by showing the world the true nature of wisdom/emotional-intelligence.

All emotions, including wisdom and love etc can now be defined in numbers. The art of living is now a science. Wisdom is a science!

Author and Speaker Barbara Coloroso to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

GREELEY, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, September 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As young people from preschool through high school begin this new school year in a highly charged—and at times, toxic— climate, parents, educators, and students need to have a serious conversation about bullying and its intended and unintended consequences. Whether they target others, are targeted, or play the role of the not-so innocent bystanders, young people are deeply affected by meanness and cruelty.

Speaking on her updated and expanded version of her international bestseller, The Bully, The Bullied, and The Not-So-Innocent Bystander, Barbara Coloroso will address such pressing topics as:

• The connection between a rise in hate speech, and the potential for bullying with racial, ethnic and religious overtones in our schools, neighborhoods and communities
• The difference between normal, natural, and necessary conflict and the utter contempt and disaffection for “the other,” aka: bullying
• The difference between teasing and taunting
• What to do and what not do if a young person is targeted
• How young people get caught up in the “trap of complicity” with the bully, and the roles that they each play.
• Valid reasons, and lousy excuses, why young people might not stand up for their targeted peers
• How we as adults can help young people become active witnesses, resisters and defenders—by standing up for their peers and speaking out against cruelty and injustice

Barbara Coloroso is an international bestselling author, and for the past 48 years an internationally-recognized speaker and consultant–on parenting, teaching, school discipline, positive school climate, bullying, grieving, nonviolent conflict resolution, genocide, and restorative justice.

She has appeared on CBC, BBC, Oprah, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, Fox News and NPR and has also been featured in The New York Times, Time, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek, and other media. Her uniquely effective strategies were developed through years of training in sociology, special education, and philosophy, as well as field-tested through her experiences as a classroom teacher, laboratory school instructor, university instructor, seminar leader, volunteer in Rwanda with orphans from the 1994 genocide, and as a mother of three (now grown).

Barbara is the author of four international bestsellers: kids are worth it! Giving Your Child the Gift of Inner Discipline; Parenting Through Crisis;-Helping Kids in Times of Loss, Grief and Change; Just Because It’s Not Wrong Doesn’t Make It Right—From Toddlers to Teens, Teaching Kids to Think and Act Ethically and her latest book, The Bully, the Bullied, and the Not-So-Innocent Bystander—From Preschool Through High School and Beyond, Breaking the Cycle of Violence and Creating More Deeply Caring Communities. In Barbara’s book, Extraordinary Evil: A Brief History of Genocide…and Why it Matters, and her Ted X lecture on that subject, she discusses the premise that it is a short walk from hateful rhetoric to hate crimes to crimes against humanity, and that the walk begins with dehumanizing the “other” through verbal taunts.

CUTV News will feature Barbara Coloroso in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on Friday, Sept. 28th at 4:00pm EDT

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio

Early Childhood Book from D.C. Publisher Promotes Attachment, Breastfeeding, and Science Education

Beautiful addition to children’s literature celebrates the bond between parent and child with gentle text and gorgeous illustrations of animal babies

What a gentle book! It nurtures a child’s empathy for others and opens their eyes to the world of nature. Very sweet and educational.”

— Dr. Harvey Karp, FAAP, author, The Happiest Baby on the Block

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Platypus Media announces the release of a beautiful new children’s book, Cuddled and Carried.

With warm paintings of animal mothers tending to their cubs, pups, calves, and chicks, Cuddled and Carried introduces the reader to a variety of animals and their behavior. Written by Dia L. Michels, the simple text and supplemental back matter will help parents, librarians, educators, and healthcare providers creatively describe how babies are cared for. The book introduces a range of early science concepts including habitats, family systems, and survival instincts. The book has already won a Purple Dragonfly Award and a Top Choice Award from Baby Maternity Magazine.

The images, depicting animal mothers as they lend a paw, wing, or flipper to care for their young, model attachment, breastfeeding, and caretaking. Dr. Sarah Reece-Stremtan, a pediatrician based in Washington, D.C., writes, "My two boys love this charming book. I really appreciate how it normalizes the nurturing relationship between parents and their children. It makes cuddling during story time that much sweeter!"

“Scientific study has shown that physical closeness has lasting positive effects on the relationship between parents and their babies; this is what this book shows very successfully,” explains Jack Newman, M.D., author of The Ultimate Breastfeeding Book of Answers. “Cuddled and Carried models many ways parents nourish their children and help them feel secure.”

A 5-Star Review from Readers’ Favorite states, “Short lines and amazing illustrations make it easy to extend children’s joy of the material through questioning, and also through the use of the material in the back of the book.”

The accompanying Teacher’s Guide is also an excellent resource for continuing the discussion, available for free download at PlatypusMedia.com. It includes additional content and hands-on activities to develop cognitive skills, introduce early science concepts, and improve literacy.

“This book shows that animal families are not so different from human ones,” explains Michels, who is also the author of If My Mom Were A Platypus: Mammal Babies and Their Mothers. “I want children to think about how each species matures, survives, and what their communities look like—whether pride, flock, or family. Showing children this type of attachment in the natural world fosters empathy, kindness, and compassion.”

Cuddled and Carried will be released simultaneously in hardback, paperback, and eBook formats. The bilingual (English/Spanish) edition, Cuddled and Carried / Consentido y cargado, was released in June 2018.

The book will be available in a two-book set with another new release, Babies Nurse. Together, these books about care and bonding create a foundation for healthy growth, introduce science topics, and promote breastfeeding and attachment. Both titles are part of Platypus Media’s new Beginnings collection.

Dia L. Michels is an internationally published, award-winning science and parenting writer who is committed to promoting attachment parenting. She has authored or edited over a dozen books for both children and adults. She can be reached at Dia@PlatypusMedia.com.

Mike Speiser’s beautiful images of mother and baby animals have appeared on the cover of National Geographic’s Wild Animal Baby magazine. His work can be seen at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, WI. He can be reached at Mike@PlatypusMedia.com.

Platypus Media is an independent press that creates products with a broad appeal to diverse families who believe in the importance of close family relationships for the full and healthy development of children. The publisher is committed to the promotion and protection of breastfeeding, and donates a percentage of profits to groups that work in this field.

Platypus Media products are available for direct purchase. They are distributed to the trade by National Book Network. Library bound editions are available from Children’s Plus. Review copies available upon request. Sample pages, cover scans, and Teacher’s Guide available at PlatypusMedia.com.

At The UN They All Talk +2 While Back Home They All Indulge In -2 Behavior.

Identify with the mind and with it heal the brain.

Emotional intelligence comes from emotional health.

Create your pure self by healing your brain through brain education.

Stop letting your emotional baggage rule your life.

Brain education is about actualizing your full emotional health power.

Wisdom education is brain cleaning education.

If I show the path to a +2 World Order will our world leaders review my proposal? At individual and country levels Sweden is already +2 and so can all countries

Country after country keeps creating a -2 group-country self-image and wonders why it is not producing + 2 results. Can -2 ever equal +2?”

— Sajid Khan

NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, September 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The laws for wise behavior are the same for groups and countries as they are for individuals. Human nature for groups and countries depends on the same fundamental factor of self-identity. The basic reason why we have so many wars, bloated defense budgets, and rivalry amongst nations instead of cooperation and peace is that the group image of every nation is macho (-2). As machoness is ignorance almost all nations install an ignorant country self-image in their citizens.

The most important question that every individual, group, tribe, and country needs to answer wisely is, 'Who am I?'

There are approximately four levels of the self-image as follows:

1) I am all important, the only one above the law while everyone else is below the law. I am all that counts. An insanely self-centered self-image. (-2)

2) I am not as important as I deserve to be yet but I will be by hook or by crook. A corrupt self-image. (-1)

3) We are all equal but I am the best. An egoistic self-image. (+1)

4) We are all one family. Everyone deserves the best. A humble and selfless self-image. (+2)

While individuals continue to be raised variously at one of the above four levels when it comes to groups and countries every one of them is nurtured into an insanely self-centered group-image! It boils down to cultivating a -2 group-country image. So with this -2 group image wired into their brains, national leaders come to meet at the UN and they all pretend to be +2 and show how they are all behaving +2 while their rivals are the ones behaving -2.

Cultivating a -2 group image has a negative effect on all life. As a consequence defense budgets are bursting at the seams taking away scarce resources from health, education, infrastructure etc.

Not only is there a chance for a Wise World Order there is a chance to create immense wealth, happiness, prosperity and peace through a new Wisdom Industry.

Wisdom 3.0

A very simple paradigm shift is all that is required to change the current chaotic world mess into an authentic wisdom powered world of harmonious order. The current world mess clearly stems from a nonlinear definition of wisdom. All that is required is to change the current fuzzy definition of wisdom to a predictable phenomenon. Let’s just change the definition of wisdom from being a philosophy to being a science. Wisdom and emotional intelligence are one and the same. They both stem from emotional health. The simple trick is to define wisdom as emotional health. Emotional health is as scientific a phenomena as they come. Focusing on emotional health will generate wisdom effortlessly.

A plan to create emotional health will replace the ills of society with a massive positive change that will mean not just successful sustainability but a super #full-means-ability. Combined with the effects of a wise society the creation of a Wisdom Industry will create massive jobs in all corners of the world which will result in huge economic gains. Just imagine a free Wisdom Land franchise with branches all over the world. Just imagine a whole new profession of Brain Healers, WisdomSeminar Leaders, Wise Parenting Coaches, Jail Instructors, Leadership Coaches, Happiness Coaches etc.

Every country, region, corner of the world can all be equal partners in such entities as Wisdom Day, Wisdom Land, Wisdom Hall of Fame, Brainpower Club, Shypower Club, Happiness Clinics, Divorce Clinics etc. I also have a ‘green flours’ idea (expired patent). Vacuum Power Generators. (Vacuum power is the fulcrum of wind power).

Some of my projects include toys that teach wisdom, a script for a movie,’The Story of Wisdom’, a sitcom on wisdom, a talk show on wisdom, The Wisdom Express, The Star of Wisdom Award, seminars on wisdom, happiness, love, deep brain relaxation etc.

Imagine what emotionally healthy brains on a massive scale will do to the world.

We Must Find the Path to a Wise Society by Any and Every Means Possible. The world is in chaos because we continue to produce emotionally challenged brains in the majority of mankind, not just at the individual level and even at the group and country levels.

There are extremely simple, crystal clear and effective tricks to creating a wise society.

Define wisdom not by its qualities and attributes but by whatever generates wisdom. Thus define wisdom as emotional health.

Identify emotional health as humility because it is humility that transforms every attribute of wisdom into wisdom!

As wisdom is the smoke where emotional health is the fire focus on lighting the fire instead of trying to create smoke on its own. To create emotional health create emotionally healthy brains by ensuring emotional baggage free brains. Thus define wisdom education as wise-parenting for the young and brain-therapy for all others.

'Wisdom education is not about teaching the attributes of wisdom to the mind. Wisdom education is about healing the egoist self-image into a selfless self-image. It is about replacing selfishness with selflessness/humility.' We create an insanely egoistic country image instead.

Meg Resnikoff & Elle Walker, What’s Up Moms Co-Founders

How & Why They Created and Built The #1 Parenting Channel on YouTube

Elle and Meg are certainly two of the biggest stars in the marketing to moms universe.”

— M2Moms® Producer Nan McCann

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, September 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Co-Founders Elle Walker & Meg Reskinoff will tell the story of What’s Up Moms success, at the 14th Annual M2Moms® – The Marketing to Moms Conference, Oct. 2 & 3, NYC. What’s Up Moms is the #1 parenting channel on YouTube with over 2.2 million subscribers and 60 million views per month. M2Moms® is designed to help brand marketing executives improve their overall results with today’s moms.

According to Walker and Resnikoff, the question that led them to start What’s Up Moms was, “In a world where there were a million videos on how to apply mascara, why were there none on how to fly with a toddler?” During their session at M2Moms® they’ll discuss how they’ve succeeded, with very little budget, in forging connections with millions of moms – even when large corporations with budgets to match have fallen short.

“I’m sure Elle and Meg’s session will be an eye-opener for all the marketers in the audience who would love to build that kind of connection with today’s moms for their brands. It’s definitely ‘don’t miss’ for every exec who markets to moms,” said M2Moms® producer Nan McCann. “It’s a great example why M2Moms® is so important to attend. M2Moms® is packed with sessions on everything from experiential marketing to location-based mom tech and all the latest research and techniques. It’s structured to help brands improve and evolve their marketing efforts in a rapidly changing communications environment.”

“That’s why every year M2Moms® is attended by a comprehensive and diverse list of brands including Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, Evenflo, IKEA, Abbott Nutritionals, GM, Allstate, Heinz, Symantec, Hasbro, Procter & Gamble, Wyeth and Coca-Cola,” according to McCann. “M2Moms® attendance typically sells out.”
