Communication - Tip #7

Whether you are 18 or 80 years old you have people in your life that love you, worry about you and think of you constantly. You may not always see it as love and find it annoying at times but they love you and care about you all the same. While you are away, you must think of the immediate moment, put to the back of your mind thoughts of home friends or family so it can become challenging to remember to write, phone or email them as often as they would like on top of the limitations of not having a phone, computer or time to communicate.

Daily Logs - Tip #53

When you are apart it isn't just the big things that change. Sometimes it is a lot of little things that make the most noticeable changes or differences when all put together. A fun way to mark these is by keeping a daily log. It doesn't have to be more than a sentence a day - it can just be a couple of words to tell about something that happened, didn't happen, made your mouth drop open, made you cry or laugh. When your family member returns you can help to fill in the gaps and trigger your own memories using the log.

(Note: Once again, little ones have gone unprotected, with small boys victimized by both the twisted and broken and the blind and indifferent. I was sexually- abused decades ago, at the age of 8. No victim ever forgets. For the hope of the Penn State small boys and other children being abused, often despite the awareness of others who look the other way, I'm sharing my story here. If you are aware of a child predator, please speak up. Silence truly like a cancer grows.)

My mom died. I haven't written in a while because she is gone, and I just don't know how to make things seem normal when they are not. How can I possibly write articles and musings as if nothing has changed when everything has changed forever? I recognize that everyone's mother dies. I think they call it the Cycle of Life, and I used to offer that phrase to others as a consolation. But now it seems superficial and irritating.

For me, the fact that the sun came out the very next day, that my cell phone continued to ring with business calls from people seeking answers to questions they... Read More

The foibles of parents can create blind spots for kids and even as a parent when you want to provide broad, correct and useful guidance--sometimes you can't get out of your own way to see that you are biased. Case in point: niceties.

Please, Thank you, You're Welcome. Are they necessary to get you what you want in life? Yes. Are they what civilized, enlightened people say to one another? Yes. Do they expend extra energy & time to say and sometimes smack of formality and expose weakness? Yes. Back in college, when I was learning to direct television programs and television news...

Dear TAI (Talk About It),

I am a single mom with two boys. My oldest is 13-years-old. His disrespect for me is and has continued to grow for more than a year. I know and remember all the emotions and changes that took place in my teenage years. If a boy made fun of me or said something to me that hurt my feelings, this 30 seconds or so could ruin my entire day. But things are really getting out of hand. He basically lives on his computer playing this Wizard 101 game.

If I try to talk with him or remind him of his chores while he is on his computer his response is almost always,... Read More

A biography represents not just the opportunity to regale the world with details of the latest fashion dilemmas faced by Jordan or Paris Hilton, or sordid affair embarked upon by Wayne Rooney, but also the chance for each of us to preserve something very special and quite unique.

Not for a minute am I suggesting that each of us should seek to gain fame and recognition by publishing the most intimate exploits of our lives, or attempt to make a fast buck by cashing-in on the current voyeuristic obsession with following the most mundane aspects of a person's life. No, the... Read More
