Personal Revolution Therapy helps parents on how to talk to their kids about Miley Cyrus’s inappropriate performance at the MTV VMAs.

BBC News said that the Parent Television Council (PTC) issued a complaint over Miley Cyrus’s sexually provocative performance at the MTV VMAs. This incident was not the first time that a celebrity’s performance exhibited inappropriate sexual innuendos to a program that is viewed by many minors, and it will not be the last. Children and adolescents whose parents do not provide their kids with proper guidance on how to have a healthy understanding about sex are influenced to act impulsively sexually by what they see in the media. Social media as a whole does not care about the ethics or morals of how adolescents should behave sexually. Most social media only care about ratings and profits. If PTC is doing its part to culturally shape public perception which in turn influences political action, parents must do their part to  educate their children about sex and help them express to their own sexuality with self-respect and integrity. The problem arises is that most parent do not know how to talk to their children/adolescents about sex.

Personal Revolution Therapy provide parents with step by step guidance on how to talk to their kids about sex. First, before diving into talking to your kid about sex, parents must set a platform before discussing to topic of sex. What kind of platform? A platform that clearly states to your child that by talking about sex that they will not get them into trouble. There exceptions to the rule however and they should be stated up front. Tell your child that, if they hear something that could directly cause harm to them, same as using drugs, that it is the role of the parent to take proper action to protect them immediately.

Second, when talking to kids about sex, parents need to do more listening than talking. When we lecture children about sex, they usually tune out. The goal is to have an open discussion about sex. How does a parent start listening? A parent starts listening by posing non-judgmental questions. For example, “What does sex mean to you?” By posing open ended and non-judgmental questions, kids are more likely to talk more. When kids began sharing about their views about sex, parents can take note on how that child perceives sex. Most kids have inmate healthy boundaries. Parents just need to reassure them that is ok to implement them without peer pressure or media influence.

The third goal is to help your children  think for themselves. When kids become self-thinkers they tend to act more responsible. By helping your child see for themselves that certain acts viewed on TV or see something in their peers that are unhealthy, their own instincts tell them that it just doesn’t feel right, your child the can make their decision to avoid those sexual acts, therefore, building healthy views about sex that can later be transcended in entering into a healthy intimate relationship as adults.

PRT’s Techniques in coping With Relatives During the Holidays

imgres

A group of lions is called a pride. It gives the impression that lions are proud of their own family members. Unfortunately, each year during the holiday season, few family members talk about how proud they are in being part of their own family. Instead, many complain how unpleasant they feel toward those family members who have caused them emotional pain . Their voices drag halfhearted with fake smiles, as their internal thoughts lingers of aged resentment all throughout the holidays.

Too often puns are used as a passive-aggressive acts of expressing dissatisfaction for ones own family. For example, “Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.” “Let’s have a family gathering for the remaining family members who still speak to each other.”

No therapist or self-help book is going to help solve your family problems in time for the holidays if you have not started working on how to improve that relationship months or years ago. However, you have two choices. One, you can bitch and complain about how unfair your unfavorable family members have been to you. Or, you can take a deep breath and “let go” of the resentment during the holidays. I don’t mean forgiving or forgetting. I am also not referring to “positive psychology” as if just by thinking positive your problems will be resolved. Whatever the reasons are, justified or not, as to why you feel this way, these issues ARE emotionally deeply rooted in the dynamics between your relationship with that conflicted family member or members.

Personal Revolution Therapy (PRT) offers real mental tools for coping with family relationship problems during this holiday season, without having false expectations that “Everything is going to be alright” for the holidays. First, take a deep breath to help stop those negative images toward that unwanted family member or members. If those images persist, you need to take an extra minute and pray to help clear your head. Never underestimate the power of prayer. Second, allow yourself to understand that nothing can be done now during the holidays to improve that relationship, especially if no efforts were made to improve that relationship throughout the year. The real truth is that you and you alone have control of your own feelings, thoughts, and actions. You do have control on how you want to respond to unwanted family members, no matter how subtle and pretentious your actions can show during the holidays. You need to take accountability to decide whether you are to be in a bad mood or not. Do not blame the other family member for your mood. Lastly, Once you recognize that you are emotionally in charge of your own feelings and thoughts, you will find yourself genuinely “Letting go. ” By “Letting go,” you will take the best possible action toward that family member by walking away if that family members begins with his/her shenanigans. Do not let them ruin your holiday.

Combating Misogyny

A photo taken of a man that appears to be humping the new statue of a prepubertal little girl is very disturbing. The little girl is intended to show women’s empowerment in the financial sector.

Unfortunately, misogyny is still alive and well in the corporate world. Unequal pay and an increase of sexual harassment seems by many corporate men just to be a nuisance and unimportant. Like many dysfunctional families where domestic violence occurs, if the rooted “disease” has been incorporated deep into the identity of that dysfunctional family, drastic changes must happen in order to break the vicious cycle of misogyny.

Please help eradicate misogyny in the corporate world.
