In this show we will discuss one of the more confusing aspects of homeopathy -- the remedy response. You will learn what to expect, what the various possible responses mean, and how to prepare for followup appointments with your homeopath. (Note: This show first aired September 16, 2005.)
Today's show will have a discussion on sound and its relation to early child development. The guests are from BabyPlus Prenatal company and will share the simple encouragement and practice of prenatal auditory learning. We will learn about their BabyPlus early ‘sound lessons’ which provide developmental benefits for a child. We’ll also learn more about the history, scientific support, and feedback from parents around the world.
What do we mean when we say that we love our children? Raun and Kristin discuss this question and offer some ideas on how we, as parents, could more intentionally define (and, thus, “live out”) what loving our children means. Your hosts also argue about what it means to say “I love you” in romantic relationships, and they spend some time celebrating our kids. Kristin provides some tips for instant stress relief, and Raun dips his toe into the debate about guns.
Ms. Moreno discusses her role in establishing an advocacy and resource organization, Maap Services for Autism and Asperger Syndrome. She mentions recent books on marriage and transitioning for high functioning people on the Autism Spectrum. Resources are described to enable individuals with Autism and their parents/guardians to live full lives in their respective communities.
For some parents, it’s their greatest fear: their child slips out of the house and bolts into traffic – or some other unsafe situation. With statistics showing that more than half of children with autism wander from safety, Raun and Kristin take the time to discuss ways to keep your wandering child safe – and you sane. Your hosts also get into a heated debate about whether men or women are better at pleasing their partner in bed. After celebrating our kids, Kristin talks about how specific foods affect your day- to-day mood, and Raun delivers a rant that shall remain nameless.
Have you ever found yourself talking to someone who vehemently opposes and criticizes the interventions that you are painstakingly implementing with your own child? You’re not alone. Raun and Kristin help you to walk the fine line between standing strong in what you know is working for your child and not needing to convince the other person to see it your way. (If you can master this, you’ll never again feel anxious about others challenging your decisions.) Your two hosts argue about whether lying is ever justified, and they celebrate our kids.
We have a chat with Lauren Underwood, PhD, about the power of combining biomedical and behavioral interventions.
