LIFE MATTERS

We’ve written a new program for adolescents and young adults.  It started out as “MILLENNIAL MATTERS” and the millennial’s are growing up, learning the things that they should have learned before leaving the nest, and I saw a great need for young adolescents and teens.  So, I combined the program and broadened the audience. 

LIFE MATTERS deals with:

  • feelings
  • money
  • career
  • education
  • cleaning
  • family
  • relationships
  • spirituality
  • self-image
  • insurance
  • budgeting
  • saving
  • investing
  • school
  • taxes
  • contribution
  • dating
  • exercise
  • nutrition
  • law
  • time management
  • assertiveness
  • habits and addictions
  • goal setting and action

 

 We’ve had great input from teenagers, millennial’s, doctors, psychologists, parents, different family units, recovery specialists, therapists, health coaches, nutritionists, law enforcement, and teachers.   We’ve had a lot of input and that helped immensely when we combined it with the research we’ve done.

    The program started to be a little program that could give essential information to help deal with life, and in one of those adversity turns to triumph stories, it’s ended up being a very full program that is going to make a huge difference in the lives of teenagers, young adults, and parents.

    At the end of November, after our new membership site is up and tested, we’ll release our new program, LIFE MATTERS.

    IN THE NEWS

    The US Centers for Disease Control says that suicide and homicide continue to rise in the age group of 10-24.  Ten years old!  That is a child, a young child.

    While suicide is up 56%, homicide is up 18% in the same years.  Accidental deaths or unintentional injuries (automobile, guns, overdoses, and drowning) are still the leading cause, but suicide and homicide are gaining.

    Boys are more likely than girls to die from suicide.  The death rate for boys at age 12 is 46% higher and at the age of 19, it’s almost 300% higher.

    There is a very large disparity in homicide deaths by race.

    The one thing that IS apparent, teenage safety is critically diminishing.

    It depends on who is reporting this news, as to the cause that is assumed.  If you go back to the original 76 page report, it’s not a simple statistical answer or remedy.

    AGES 12-17

    Obesity remains a problem with children.  20.6% of US adolescents between 12-19 years of age are obese. 

    82.8% of adolescents age 12-17 are considered to be in very good health.

    3.2% of adolescents age 12-17 smoke cigarettes.

    9.9% of children 12-17 have used alcohol in the past 30 days.

    5.8% of children in this age group are without health insurance.

    From CDC study

     

    “I believe the children are our are future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier”  

    From “Greatest Love of All”, written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed 

    PARENTS AND GUARDIANS

    It is tough being a teen.  It’s sometimes hard to be the parent of a teen. Hormones are changing, social interaction can be hard (bullying, peer pressure, decision making.)  It’s a time when teens begin to get more independence. With independence, often comes mistakes.  It isn’t a time to let go.  If anything, while giving them clear rules, boundaries, and expectations, watch them as carefully as you did when they were toddlers.

    The program LIFE MATTERS speaks to adolescents and young adults.  It is a program for adolescents and young adults.  It can be difficult to parent at this age, so, we’ve included a PARENT’S GUIDE to go along with the program.  There is also a TEACHER’S GUIDE, to be used by the teacher or coach.

    You understand how much more confident you are when you approach something new with the right experience and knowledge. 

    Young adults are doing this on a daily basis, and sometimes come out feeling more confident, but often have feelings of failure, boredom, anxiety, anger, fear, and isolation. By giving them a reference, skill-sets, a places to go for help, and easy answers, they can approach life with more confidence and success.
