Reducing Exposure to Toxins

Posted on by

Many scientists attribute the sharp increase in birth defects, cancer, and asthma in small children to environmental health threats. In addition to the fact that their nervous, respiratory, reproductive, and immune systems are still developing, during childhood, little bodies are taking in a greater ratio of food, water and air than the rest of us. Join Rona and guests as they discuss what you need to know to reduce the exposure of children to toxins such as lead, pesticides, and Phthalates. Guests: Margaret Reeves of the Pesticide Action Network of Northern California and Dennis Jordan of the Alameda County Lead Prevention Council.

The Joy of Art

Posted on by

Anyone who has seen a child covered in finger paint knows that art is an amazing amount of fun. But engaging children in art also nurtures creativity, imagination, self-esteem and holistic development. Art allows kids a chance to express themselves, connect to their cultural histories and personal stories, as well as facilitating learning in other areas. Rona and guests discuss how to engage children in visual arts. Guests: Renee Saulnier, an art studio teacher at a Reggio Inspired Art Studio, and Augusta Talbot, also teaches various ages of children in the East Bay with VALA (Visual Arts Language Arts).

Helping Preteens Develop a Healthy Body Image

Posted on by

Early adolescence is a time when young people’s bodies start to change. There is a great deal of pressure from the media and peers to be thin or look sexy. Sometimes preteens act out insecurities about their bodies in the form of cutting or eating disorders, or they might experience depression or anxiety. As a child’s body begins to develop it’s important to encourage their self-esteem, confidence, and a positive body image. Rona and guests offer ideas on how preteens develop a healthy view of themselves, and how to recognize when help is needed. Guests: Dr. Joan Valente, an Assistant Professor at University of California, San Francisco with a joint appointment in the Departments of Pediatrics and Psychiatry, and Dr. Seth Ammerman, medical director of the Mobile Adolescent Health Services Teen Van.”

Emotional Needs of New Fathers

Posted on by

New moms aren’t the only ones who get the baby blues and need attention. Some men suffer from anxiety, depression and mood swings after the birth of a child. Yet few people, including health care providers, realize that postpartum depression effects anywhere from 10%- 25% of new fathers. Many men find themselves feeling isolated and lonely after the birth of their baby, and their needs often go unnoticed. We discuss what new dads need. Guests: Dr. Will Courtenay, a psychotherapist and creator of www.saddaddy.com, and Eric Reynolds, a facilitator of fathers’ support groups for Bananas, as they discuss what new dads need.
