I have never punished my child Parenting for a Nonviolent World


“Listening” provided by Anahata Giri

Punishment undermines the very basis of parenting: maintaining a safe, clear, loving relationship between parent and child.

(MELBOURNE)  I have never punished my child. This is not because I have some kind of freaky perfect child. My 8 year old son is a normal child who engages with the world with a natural childlike intensity. This means he sometimes challenges boundaries by doing what he wants and upsetting others. At times I am very upset by his actions and I have been stretched beyond my own boundaries many times. This can be really tough.

Committee room 9: “Scotland and Palestine: Building Friendship and Solidarity”

Seminar at Houses of Parliament: “Scotland and Palestine” Building Friendship and Solidarity

Seminar at Houses of Parliament: “Scotland and Palestine” Building Friendship and Solidarity

Islam was, is, and remains a peaceful expression of the love and mercy of Allah. Societal, political expression for Muslims, a “political force”, is their right and must be defended.

(LONDON)  Organised by the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) and  the Council of European Palestinian Relations (CEPR) this vital seminar, which was held on the 17 November 2015, took on a more poignant atmosphere. Especially in light of the acts of violence perpetrated just days earlier where ‘seven coordinated attacks’ apparently from three hybrid ISIL groups brought France to the heart-stilling- reality of a collective human tragedy. Equally, the 12 November attack in Beirut Lebanon where  39 were killed in Bourj el Barajneh by two suicide bombers were the topics of concerned discussion outside Committee Room 9.

Memories of an amazing childhood journey in 1938.

(DAYTONA BEACH)   My father was born in Baptist Ontario, raised in Hell’s Kitchen near 34th Street in Manhattan, was in the trenches in France while still a boy and, invalided back to England, flew a rickety biplane in the Royal Flying Corps by the time he was 20. He was to see the banks and braes of bonny Scotland and,  de-mobbed in Toronto, he experienced the snows of the American West and the topless towers of Wall Street. By the onset of the Depression he had by some strange default become school principal in a tiny Alberta town in the middle of the Dust Bowl that endured for that most desolate decade, during which the entire western world seemed to hunker down in silent desperation.

First in a series – the smoking gun in the prescription opioid/heroin death toll

200131720-001Why are organizations advocating for families devastated by death and addiction in record numbers not calling for treatment of the disease of addiction?

Marianne Skolek Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH) Many parents held a “talk to your children about addiction over dinner on 11/19.”  It was a means of “educating” children about drugs and addiction.  This dialogue over dinner was encouraged by many organizations some funded by the pharmaceutical industry such as Partnership for a Drug Free Kids.  I don’t think there is a family or a teenager in this country who has not lost a relative or friend due to prescription opioid/heroin addiction.  So to encourage families to “talk about addiction” on a particular night at the dinner table is interesting.We don’t encourage families to discuss cancer over the dinner table on a designated night.  We treat cancer as the disease it is.  Why don’t we treat addiction as the disease it is?

OB2L: Leela James Speaks about Social and Creative Responsibility

It’s clearly obvious that we have a generation right now that is lost in terms of consciousness and of knowing who we are; not only just as a black person, but also as a man or as a woman. We seem to have forgotten how we should be conducting ourselves and how we should be living. There are certain things that are just not in order. At some point we’ve gotten off track and we need to get back on track. So, yes, if we see something that needs to be addressed and we have to pull a brother or sister’s coattail about it, that is just what we are supposed to do: “each one teach one.”

The Climate Talks in Paris will fail: why?

Despite this readily available information, governments continue to prioritise spending $US2,000,000,000 each day on military violence,…

Robert J. Burrowes Global News Centre

(TASMANIA)  As expectations build for a global consensus to emerge from the United Nations climate conference in Paris, starting on 30 November 2015, that could agree to taking action to limit any rise in global temperature to 2 degrees celsius, I would like to explain why these expectations are misplaced. And what we can do about it.
