DESCRIPTION Kids are exposed to sex today as never before. Social media, the internet, movies, television and music videos typically portray sex in a crass and shameful manner. Our kids desperately need to understand that sex is amazing, it’s wonderful, and something they will enjoy for decades to come.. when done in the right context and timing. Your child not only needs to hear about sex from you, he/she actually wants to hear about sex from you. They want to know what you think about them and sex. You are the one who can present sexual information to them in a positive way. You can empower them to postpone their sexual debut as long as possible, and in doing so, decrease the number of potential sex partners that they will have. As parents, we must be the ones to give the initial talk, and subsequent talks, about sex with our kids. Today’s sexualization of our kids has taught them that sex is dark and twisted, but as parents we need to teach them just the opposite -- that sex is a wonderful gift that should be cherished and cared for. Dr. Meg gives helpful insight and information to equip parents to tackle this difficult subject with their kids.   WELCOME Dr. Meg begins this episode by letting you, her listener, know that the PGK podcast is for your benefit - to help you understand why your kids do what they do, so that you can be the parent you want to be. No topic is off-limits, so if there is a subject that you would like discussed, let her know! Dr. Meg also teases her points to ponder - take-aways that can be put into practice right away.

Dr. Meg shines a light on the behaviors and emotions of kids when involved in teenage sex, and explains why depression is so often linked to our kids’ sexual activity. The bottom line? Sex is not for kids. It takes guts to parent against today’s current culture, to train kids to delay sexual activity. Dr. Meeker equips and encourages parents to raise their children above the toxicity and sexualization of the culture, which will profoundly impact decades of their lives.   BREAK   A CONVERSATION WITH DR MEG (PART 2) In this frank and honest discussion, Dr. Meg doesn’t beat around the bush when it comes to talking about sex with our kids -- she shares startling statistics of STI’s (sexually transmitted infections) in our children.. the impact of which goes far beyond the physical consequences.

    Episode 144: Encouragement for Children Who are Adopted and in Foster Care

    41:59

    Imagine not being given a name until you were two years old. Imagine living in constant fear of your father, whom you knew might literally kill you at any moment, for any reason. Imagine becoming a street kid at the tender age of four, after running away from your abusive home life. Imagine having to steal scraps of food, and no one knowing your name. How does one survive such a childhood? This is the extraordinary story of Peter Mutabazi, a surviving street kid who didn’t even think about the future beyond where his next meal would come from, yet eventually became an entrepreneur and the founder of Now I Am Known, a grassroots coalition focused on adoption and foster care. A single dad, Peter has fostered many children in his home through the years. He understands what it’s like to have no father in his life, to be abused, to have no food.. he knows what it means to be neglected. With this personal experience, it’s easy for Peter to relate to foster children, and to help them through their trauma. Listen in as Peter shares with Dr. Meg how he went from being a homeless street kid to a thriving entrepreneur and foster parent -- all because a caring stranger took notice of him, called him by name, fed him, gave him the chance to attend school, and ultimately changed the trajectory of his life. Peter refuses to allow bitterness to keep him from a bright future. He has been given much, and wants to give back much in return. In Peter’s own words, “I can not change the past, but I can change tomorrow.” His goal is to bring love and acceptance to foster children in the very same way that he himself received it. Every parent -- biological, foster or adoptive -- will benefit greatly from this powerful conversation by learning how to show their children that they are valued, seen, loved and known.   WELCOME   A CONVERSATION WITH DR MEG (PART 1) Dr. Meg welcomes guest Peter Mutabazi, a surviving street kid, foster dad, single father, entrepreneur, and founder of Now I Am Known, a grassroots coalition focused on adoption and foster care.   BREAK   A CONVERSATION WITH DR MEG (PART 2) Dr. Meg continues her conversation with guest Peter Mutabazi, a surviving street kid, foster dad, single father, entrepreneur, and founder of Now I Am Known, a grassroots coalition focused on adoption and foster care.   IN CLOSING Dr. Meg ended the conversation by saying she would like to have Peter back on the show, and asked how listeners can connect with him to find out more about his initiative and the work that he is doing (website: www.nowiamknown.com; Facebook: Peter Mutabazi; Instagram: @fosterdadflipper).    FROM THE PRODUCER Thanks for listening to Episode 144, NOW I AM KNOWN, and for helping Dr. Meg’s parenting revolution reach over SIX MILLION downloads!

    #142: Show Me the Father (with guests Alex and Stephen Kendrick)

    46:08

    DESCRIPTION The role of a father is vitally important. There is a place inside of every child that desperately wants and needs their father’s affirmation, acceptance and love. Yet many families have suffered generations of dysfunctional behavior, leaving those core needs (from father to child) unmet. Fathers in general don’t believe they are doing a good job with their kids -- they struggle to love their kids because they weren’t shown love by their own father. They don’t know how to bless their children because they never received a father’s blessing themselves. Research shows that disappointment in children due to a father’s absence, disinterest, mistreatment or abuse will often lead to a rejection of God, our heavenly Father. Alex and Stephen Kendrick share with Dr. Meeker how we typically get our first concept of what God is like from our earthly father. If a dad is loving and present in a child’s life, it’s easy for them to see God that way. If he is distant, absent or abusive, children will often view God in that light. It’s crucial that we view God for who He really is, and not for what our earthly father was like. The good news is that the chains of any family tree dysfunction can be broken! We don’t have to continue on in the pain and wounded-ness caused by an earthly father. God not only knows your story, but He wants to redeem your story for good. The Kendrick Brothers share how their new documentary, Show Me the Father weaves together four real-life fathering stories, providing an inspiring, hope-filled reminder of the importance of fathers in families and society, while also reminding us that we have a perfect heavenly Father who wants to heal our deepest wounds.                                     WELCOME Dr. Meg starts this episode by introducing her guests, Alex and Stephen Kendrick, creators of the documentary, Show Me the Father. Dr. Meg also teases her points to ponder that you can start using right away. Dr. Meeker introduces her free webinar, When No Stops Working that you can find at meekerparenting.com!   A CONVERSATION WITH ALEX AND STEPHEN KENDRICK (PART 1) In today’s episode, Dr. Meeker has a heartfelt conversation with Alex and Stephen Kendrick about fathering and their new documentary, Show Me the Father. They discuss the vital importance of a father in the life of a child, the need for men to be healed of their own father-wounds so they can learn to truly love and affirm their own children, as well as how to disassociate an earthly father’s attributes from God’s perfect, loving attributes. *Show Me the Father is being released September 10th in theaters across the U.S. and internationally.

    40:37

    With all the messages from the media thrown at girls these days, it’s no wonder that worry and anxiety in adolescent girls is on the rise. When you combine social media running the next teen’s “highlight reel” with pressure to achieve more in school due to standardized testing or parental pressure, it’s a recipe for increased feelings of being overwhelmed and thoughts of suicide.

So, as a parent, what can you do to help your daughter deal with all these things in a healthy way? Listen to this episode, and you’ll be in a much better place to deal with those things!
