The bottom line cause of why not much changes regarding the social ills, is our ignorance regarding the role of the brain in human behavior.

Please let us make the right beginning with a hearing on my solutions for an Emotionally Healthy America.”

— Sajid Khan

WASHINGTON, DC, NJ, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2018 / — Please consider a super hearing on Emotional Health where the Chairman of each and every committee participates.

Emotional health is 50% of health and yet while there are guidelines and tests for every other aspect of health there is no testing and no guidelines for emotional health.

Your committee respectively is striving for every possible means to flush out solutions for the problems facing America in your respective field. The bottom line reason for most of these problems is the ignorance about, and negligence of emotional health.

At the individual, group and country level the human miracle is built to thrive, instead, it is polluted with the effects of the ignorance of our experts.

Let us look at some of the biggest problems facing America that need to be solved. The Mother of all problems that prevents any real breakthroughs is the ignorance of our experts regarding the true nature of human faculties like Wisdom, Emotional Intelligence, Human Nature, Brain, Mind, and Health.

Every single physical human behavior is controlled by the emotional quality of the mind, which in turn is controlled by the brain. The problem is that the brain remains under the radar screen. To change the negative human behavior attempts are made to reform and change minds while brain reform is ignored. Thus the brain remains as emotionally challenged as ever. The emotionally challenged brain continues to generate toxic chemicals that harm the physical and mental faculties. This has a rippling effect on the individual and society.

To reform behavior attempts are made to re-educate the mind. It is like fresh water is poured into a glass that is producing its own dirty water. The fresh water keeps getting dirty and the whole mental system remains as dysfunctional as ever and nothing changes.

The bottom line cause of why not much changes regarding the social ills, in spite of your committee's efforts to find solutions is the ignorance regarding the role of the brain in human behavior.

The focus on physical and mental health is not enough to solve the emotionally challenged society. We cannot afford to ignore emotional health.

Mental Health is wrongly defined as just Mind Health when it is a combination of Mind and Brain Health. Emotional health is a function of the brain and it is ignored because the brain and mind are lumped together as just the mind. In fact, the mind itself is couched in fuzziness. Do you know that the mind as a topic of study is missing from High School psychology textbook? The brain and mind are two separate entities. Mental health is a function of the mind while emotional health is a function of the brain. Mental health itself is a combination of the regular education of the mind and the emotional education of the brain. So the reason why education and society are messed up is due to ignoring emotional/brain health/education.

We in America have cutting edge mind education but our brain education is not only mostly missing, the brain is miseducated. As a result, America is quite a bit an emotionally challenged society. It need not be like this. All our leaders need to do is focus on emotional health. I already have a step by step plan on how to make America emotionally healthy.

There is a one-step solution to improving the economy, education, crime, greed, corruption, rivalries, relationships, parenting, health, happiness, drug addictions, sleeplessness etc. By introducing Brain/Emotional-Health Education/Healing and creating emotional health for the young and the old. The path to a Wise Society is not via Teaching Wisdom; it is through creating Emotional Baggage Free Brains. Emotional Health is the Key to a Wise Society.

Please let us make the right beginning with a hearing on my solutions for an Emotionally Healthy America.

Working on Your Self-Esteem is Key to Improve Your Sense of Well-Being | Study on American Women's Quality of Life Shows

quality of life and self esteem in American women

well being and self esteem in American women

what women would change about themselves

Improving self-esteem and having a positive effect in general well-being is very achievable, according to this quality of life study.

'Troubles' for women with positive self esteem are more diverse. Weight is considerably the most delicate issue for those with self-esteem issues, followed by anxiety and depression.”

— Holistics – Insight the Culture

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 / — Quality of life is a complex topic and is treated in many spheres as a science in itself. Academics have studied it from different disciplinary approaches to help policy makers and marketers innovate and improve services, products and spaces to affect positively the quality of life of citizens.

One of the main insights about quality of life is that its understanding is composed by an objective, exogenous level (environmental) and by a subjective, endogenous (personal) level of perception about the environment. Which basically means that your perception about yourself, your life and your surroundings affects your quality of life in general. For example, people who live in the same house have been found to experience different perceptions about their quality of life based on their subjective appreciations.

This study dived into what American women are thinking, doing, what they eat, who they admire and what they associate with good quality of life. One of the most important concepts covered during the study is self-esteem. Here are a few findings that can bring light into ways to improve your notion of well-being:

What you can do

Walking is the activity that most American women relate to feeling good about themselves, followed by reading, working and spending time with their family. Walking is deeply related with dogs, being outdoors and doing exercise in general. Reading books in print and digitally also makes women perceive a better quality of life. Working is also high on the list and includes not only nine-to-fives but also entrepreneurship and volunteering in different social organizations and non-profits.

What you can get

Books, phones and computers are some of the most cherished items women refer to when asking about their quality of life. This of course has to do with access to information and nurturing the mind, as well as staying connected with friends, family and like-minded individuals and groups. Women find great quality of life in reading, which they can do with any of these preferred items.

A second set of things were associated directly to their quality of life and well-being that have to do with their outward experiencing of social life and how they are able to express themselves in social settings. One of the concepts used to refer to this kind of items was self-care. Some of these items are products for the hair and skin, clothes, shoes, makeup and jewelry. The importance of such items lies in their effect on identity, expression and confidence, as the surveyed women shared in this study.

Who and what to follow

Michelle Obama, Ellen Degeneres and Oprah are the most frequently admired public figures. The topics that were associated the most with good quality of life were in the order of positive thinking, self-help content and parenting tips. Also family values and home decor content were associated with general well-being.

Self-Esteem and Well-Being

When asked about their general well-being and quality of life on a scale of one to five, the average score was 3.67 and the median was 4, which amounted to a little over 38%. Twenty percent scored their well-being with a solid 5 while a bit over 2% scored a 1 and 7% a 2. That’s nearly 10% with a negative perception of their quality of life, in general, while 31% scored a 3. The remaining 59% have a positive outlook.

Interestingly, when asked to rate their self-esteem the average score was close but a little lower at 3.4. It can be said that it is relatively easier for women to rate their general quality of life and well-being slightly better than their self-esteem. Only 12% of the sample rated themselves as empowered, while most rated themselves as having a positive self-esteem and 27% as average. Nearly 20%, double the general quality of life rating, rated themselves having a low self-esteem.

Investing in self-esteem may improve the perception of quality of life

What is interesting about these findings is that amongst those women with higher self-esteem, the score for the general well-being goes above 4, while amongst the women with lower self-esteem their quality of life goes straight to the 2’s.

The key insight is to understand that everyone has the power to work on his or her self-esteem, and doing so involves acquiring relatively simple habits that might have a positive effect both in the self-esteem and in the holistic sense of well-being and quality of life.

Taking up walking and reading, increasing the time spent working, volunteering and with family, switching to health eating with a controlled dose of indulgence and investing time and resources in feeling more confident in social settings are bound to have a positive effect in the self-esteem and in the quality of life, as perceived and lived.

In a May, 2018 survey, Holistics International, an independent media research firm that focuses on Business Culture and Quality of Life, aimed to learn about how they understand and define their well-being in today's America. Sample Size: 521 complete responses (95% confidence level +-4% error).

The Panacea for America's Economic, Social and Educational Ills is an Emotionally Healthy America.

Identify with the mind and with it heal the brain.

use the Brain and Mind to Improve Each Other.

Know, understand and become your +2 pure self.

Emotional intelligence comes from emotional health.

Emotional health is the panacea for a wise America.

America has to be powered by emotional health.

50% of health is emotional health yet emotional health is below the radar screen of our leaders & experts. There is no testing or manual for emotional health.

Emotional intelligence is the smoke where emotional health is the fire. No wonder teaching emotional intelligence is as fuzzy as ever. It is like trying to create smoke without lighting the fire.”

— Sajid Khan, Ensure Wisdom Through Emotionally Healthy Parenting.

WASHINGTON, DC, DC, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2018 / — It is quite clear that spending money on public health has a positive rippling effect on all aspects of life. 50% of health is emotional health and yet emotional health is below the radar screen of our leaders and our experts. Not only is there no testing of emotional health there are no guideline instructions or manuals for emotional health.

There is infrastructure for curing mental illnesses but I am not talking about curing sub-normal people into becoming normal. I am saying that out of the so-called 'normal' masses, the majority are emotionally challenged respectively from mild to severe. Given the advances in the mind sciences, we can take the said normal and effectively heal them into super normal.

Today America is unnecessarily an emotionally challenged society simply because we have still not figured out the true nature of emotional intelligence. There are a few facts I would like to clear about emotional intelligence:

Emotional intelligence is considered to be a stand-alone, independent entity when it is a secondary entity. Emotional intelligence is the smoke where emotional health is the fire. Just as smoke is created by lighting fire, emotional intelligence will be generated only by the creation of emotional health. It is practically impossible to generate smoke without lighting the fire, no wonder teaching emotional intelligence is just as hard. yet our experts are focused on trying to teach emotional intelligence directly. By creating emotional health, emotional intelligence will emerge effortlessly.

Another stumbling block to making America emotionally healthy is our experts' ignorance of the true nature of the mind and its relationship with the brain. The brain and mind are lumped together as the mind when these are two separate entities. As a result brain and mind education are put together as just mind education. Any wonder that we have 44,000 books on happiness and not one makes us happy! It is because these books try to teach the mind happiness and when the brain is wired to generate unhappiness then it is the brain that needs to be healed. Regular education is a function of the mind and emotional-intelligence/emotional-health education is a function of the brain. The question is why to make the brains of our children emotionally challenged in the first place and why we do not have emotional health testing and brain healing guidelines for the rest. (Instead of the current mind therapy just for the mentally challenged).

Emotional health is 50% of health and yet there are no guidelines nor any testing of emotional health. We must make the testing and teaching of Emotional Health mandatory. An emotionally healthy mind and brain is the silver bullet for all kinds of social and educational ills. All the ills of society are emotionally challenged behavior that stems from emotionally challenged brains.

The biggest hole in the economy, education, and society that needs fixing is emotional health, the neglected part of health. Yesterday there was Senate hearing on rural health. Emotional health was not even on the radar screen. I shared my solutions for focusing on emotional health with the Senators and the experts at the hearing, the question is will they now take action?

I am proposing a whole new department of Emotional Health in every university, hospital, organization and even jail. Here are my reasons:

The other experts have focused on teaching and developing emotional intelligence while I have focused on emotional health. Emotional intelligence is the smoke where emotional health is the fire. No wonder teaching emotional intelligence education is as fuzzy as ever. It is like trying to create smoke without lighting the fire. By focusing on emotional health there is no fuzziness. Emotional health can be defined, measured and cultivated scientifically. An emotional baggage free brain generates emotional intelligence effortlessly. Please google, 'braintecness' to see how effective is my path to a wise and emotionally intelligent world through emotional health.

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.

Seven Mother's Day Tips For Special Needs Moms

Celebrate Special Needs Moms

Author Deanna Picon Offers Ways To Help Moms Throughout The Year

On Mother's Day and throughout the year, let's celebrate these amazing, special needs moms. They deserve to be recognized for being the great parents they are.”

— Deanna Picon

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, May 10, 2018 / — Managing all facets of a special needs child daily living – medical, personal, school, therapy – while working and taking care of a home is no easy feat for even the most organized parent.

"As a mother of a non-verbal, 22-year-old, young man with autism, I know how hard it can be for mothers to manage all the pressures and responsibilities of raising a child with special needs," said Deanna Picon, founder of Your Autism Coach,LLC and author of The Autism Parents' Guide To Reclaiming Your Life. "We frequently put ourselves on the back burner more often than not, but it's important for women to take care of themselves both physically and emotionally."

Mothers can apply these simple tips to have a wonderful Mother's Day and throughout the year.

● Make yourself a priority. This may be one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do, because you feel like your child should be the priority. Do it not for yourself, but for your child. Putting time toward your well-being now is like making an "investment" in your child's future.

● Remember who you are. It's very easy to allow an all-encompassing challenge like raising a child with a disability to define you. Like any parent, much of your life is going to be centered on your children, but that doesn't mean you should abandon the hobbies, events and activities you like doing, even if it's once a month. Ask a friend or family member to watch your child for a few hours, so you can do something you enjoy. Give yourself permission to have a good time and not feel guilty about it.

● Have some fun. Get together with your friends and family. Laugh, be playful and enjoy yourself. Go shopping or bowling. Visit a museum or attend a concert. Take advantage of the summer weather and go to the beach or have a picnic. It will do wonders for your emotional outlook to unload the weight of your responsibilities for a short time.

● Get healthy and fit. Try to get at least six hours of sleep a night, eat properly and get some exercise in; Spring is a perfect time to start an exercise program. You don't have to join an expensive diet plan or pay for a gym membership to do this. A 30-minute walk, three times a week, is not only excellent for your heart, but regular fresh air and exercise can also benefit your mental health. Bring along a friend for motivation and accountability. You may also want to explore meditation or other relaxation techniques.

● Keep in mind you’re human. No one’s perfect. You’re allowed to make mistakes, get angry, frustrated or even be a little sad at times. So cut yourself some slack every once in a while.

● Appreciate yourself. Do something nice for yourself, each week, no matter how small. It could be as simple as setting aside 30 minutes to watch your favorite TV show or calling a good friend to catch up. Buy something you've been wanting. Take yourself out to eat.

● Celebrate you! Know you're amazing. If anything, you're an even stronger and better person for having stepped up to the challenges of life with a special needs child.

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

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

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, May 2, 2018 / — Platypus Media announces the release of a beautiful bilingual (English/Spanish) children’s book, Cuddled and Carried / Consentido y cargado.

With warmpaintings of animal mothers tending to their cubs, pups, calves, and chicks, this bilingual book introduces the reader to animals and their behavior. Written by DiaL. 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."

The bilingual text can help readers develop language skills in English and Spanish. According to the Migration Policy Institute, “Dual Language Learners now make up nearly one-third of all children in the United States…. These children stand to benefit disproportionately from high-quality early learning opportunities.” Cuddled and Carried / Consentido y cargado aims to provide these learning opportunities for bilingual children.

“The option of reading in Spanish or English opens this book to a large number of families,” adds Ryan Pontier, Ph.D., Early Childhood Bilingual Education Council Chair for the League of United Latin American Citizens.

The accompanying Teacher’s Guide is an excellent resource, available for free download in English and Spanish at It includes additional content and hands-on activities to develop cognitive skills 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 / Consentido y cargado will be released simultaneously in hardback, paperback, and eBook. It will also be released in an English-only edition in October 2018.

The book will be available in a two-book set with another new release, Babies Nurse / Así se alimentan los bebés.

CREA wraps up country's first parenting skills project in Dhaka

A two-day primer training course on parenting skills is in session at CREA conference room in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

CREA has concluded a 1-year project to promote positive parenting skills that would reduce young generation's vulnerability to drug abuse significantly.

DHAKA, DHAKA, BANGLADESH, April 30, 2018 / — CREA ends pilot project on parenting skills

CREA today wraps up the Instituting Parenting Skills (IPS) project, the first of its kind in Bangladesh that has made 93 parents and caregivers of children and youth deemed vulnerable to drugs abuse amply equipped with relevant parenting skills that can crop the risks drastically.

The one-year pilot project was launched in May 2017 with joint funding from the society for Community-health Rehabilitation Education and Awareness (CREA) and the UNODC.

Designing and imparting a comprehensive training program on relevant and effective parenting skills for the target group was the axis of the pilot project against the backdrop of research findings across the globe have been emphasizing with persistence the critical role played by parents and caregivers in preventing drugs abuse. For example, the report of a seminal study by Rick Kosterman of the University of Washington says, “Parental monitoring and supervision are critical for drug abuse prevention. These skills can be enhanced with training on rule-setting; techniques for monitoring activities; praise for appropriate behavior; and moderate, consistent discipline that enforces defined family rules.”

The trainees were short-listed through extensive promotion and outreached assessment, and the training module was developed incorporating the views of the youths and in collaboration with a high-profile panel of experts in this field.

Divided into six batches, the participating parents and caregivers received the training free of cost in two phases – first a 2-day primer phase and after a couple of months a 1-day booster phase. Nine of the trainees who were facing challenging parenting difficulties also received thorough counseling and psychosocial therapies that indeed were successful in resolving those crises.

A reference booklet containing key parenting information, such as common parenting problems and strategies to cope with them, were developed and distributed among the graduated trainees. In addition, CREA also carried out an action research to use its findings to further develop the training module and for future course-setting, as promoting and instituting positive parenting is and will remain for quite a long time an imperative task to ensure people’s wellbeing by reducing the young generation’s risks of drugs abuse and other sorts of delinquency.

In conclusion, the project IPS recaps that the more positive is the parenting quality in a society, the more chances it has to remain free of drugs and delinquency, the more like its people are to enjoy psychosocial wellbeing.

Seven Ways To Help Special Needs Parents During Autism Awareness Month

Author Deanna Picon Offers Seven Tips To Support Parents of Autistic and Special Needs Children

Special needs parents are hidden heroes who bravely face autism and all the enormous challenges that accompany it. They deserve respect, recognition and support.”

— Deanna Picon

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, April 5, 2018 / — Raising a child with a disability, while managing work and family responsibilities is no easy task for even the most dedicated parent. Taking care of all facets of a special needs child daily living – including school activities, therapy sessions, medical appointments and personal needs – can be extremely demanding.

“Autism Awareness Month is a wonderful time for family and friends to express their support for parents of children with autism and special needs,” said Deanna Picon, founder of Your Autism Coach, LLC ( and author of The Autism Parents' Guide to Reclaiming Your Life (

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 68 U.S. children has an autism spectrum disorder. Behind these startling statistics are overwhelmed and unprepared parents, whose lives have been forever changed by an autism diagnosis.

"These parents are hidden heroes who bravely face autism and all the enormous challenges and huge responsibilities that accompany it on a daily basis. They may be your best friend, your cousin, your neighbor or co-worker," says Picon. "Special needs parents deserve respect and recognition for many reasons, including the sheer guts it takes to stay dedicated to this challenge."

Family and friends can apply these simple tips to make a huge difference in the lives of special needs parents:

* Give an unexpected break. Parenting is a 24/7, 365 day job for these parents, so any time they can get a few hours for themselves is great. Offer to watch their son or daughter at home or take him/her to a park or movie for a few hours. This will give parents the opportunity to participate in hobbies, events and activities they enjoy.

And if you’re a family member or close friend, perhaps you can keep their child overnight or for a weekend. They’ll have “peace of mind” knowing their child is safe and well-cared for. Best of all, there are no child care costs.

* Run an errand. Pick up some food and beverages at the supermarket when you shop or drop off a few letters at the post office. It'll save parents much needed time and energy.

* Bring a dish. A pizza pie, box of chicken or even a take-out meal from a local Chinese restaurant can make everyone feel good and valued. Little cupcakes are fun treats for desserts. Gift cards for a neigborhood restaurant can be a wonderful surprise.

* Assist with household chores. Vacuum a room, sort the laundry or cut up some lettuce and tomatoes for a salad. Remember, no gesture is too small and parents will always be grateful.

* Keep in touch and be supportive. Special needs parents often feel alone and isolated, so it's really beneficial to let them know you're there, if they need you. With Mother’s and Father’s Day approaching soon, this is a perfect time to send a greeting card letting them know they’re great parents. Text, email or call to just say "Hello."

* Listen without judgement. Bring over some snacks, sit down and just listen. Allow parents to laugh, cry, vent and blow off some steam. No one expects you to solve their problems or provide solutions. A friendly face or shoulder to lean on works perfectly.

These kind of simple but valuable good deeds don't have to be limited to friends and family. Work colleagues can express their support as well:

* Treat them. Little gestures can bring a big smile to the special needs parent in your office. Buy a cup of coffee or tea with a donut or bagel and place it on their desk in the morning. What a great way to start their day! Take a co-worker out for a nice lunch.

ARGYLE, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, March 15, 2018 / — Mothers never stop parenting their children, but there comes a point for all children fortunate enough to have parents reach old age, where the needs of the parent demand a reversal of roles. Suddenly the parent is the child who needs daily care and attention.

It’s often been said that no one cares for the caregivers. Charlotte Canion knows the experience all too well, having been the caregiver for three parents. Canion is the author of You Have to Laugh to Keep From Crying: How to Parent Your Parents, a “survival guide” for adult children caring for their elderly parents.

“My passion is to help people who are going through the same experience I went through, so they don't have to learn these lessons the hard way,” says Canion. “I want people to find the humor in everything they can and make the person they’re taking care of laugh as well. You're creating those cherished memories and that is what will sustain you.”

According to Canion, if a caregiver is stressed, they can't properly help the person they’re caring for. That’s why caregivers have to take care of themselves first. There has to be a way to navigate the experience in a way that’s healthy for you and your parents or loved ones.

“It was therapeutic for me, writing these stories,” recalls Canion. “My book is divided into love, respect, patience, and forgiveness. From my heart I wrote down things that made me smile, that made me laugh and made me cry. Although my mom was unable to enjoy the book herself, I know that she's smiling on me, because I'm helping other people.”

Canion is also a highly sought after public speaker on care-giving, parenting your parents and motivation.

“My mother passed away two years ago. I still find days I want to pick up the phone and call her,” recalls Canion. “I think the reason she lived with Alzheimer’s for over 10 years was because I kept her close to me. I kept her in the now. I played games with her. Some days, she might not know who I was, but she enjoyed my company. Six weeks before she died, she spoke to me like a mom would. We hugged and kissed. I was almost out the door and she yelled, ‘Charlotte! Come back here!’ And you have no idea how fast I ran back to my mom's side. Treasure all those memories and continue to create new memories.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Charlotte Canion in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on March 19th at 3pm EST and with Jim Masters on March 26th and April 2nd at 3pm EST.

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.
