You Need to Talk to Your 8-Year-Old About Pornographic Content Right Now

Kids, Sex & Screens

Kids, Sex & Screens

Dr. Jillian Roberts

Dr. Jillian Roberts



According to Child Psychologist Dr. Jillian Roberts

Sex can’t be taboo or awkward for parents and kids to talk about. The risks are too high. If you’re not their source of information about sex, other kids or Google will be. ”

— Dr. Jillian Roberts

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 17, 2019 / — Dr. Jillian Roberts, one of Canada’s most notable and respected child psychologists has just released her latest book “Kids, Sex & Screens.” This book builds upon Dr. Roberts’ 7-Point Parental Compass and is written for parents of children ages 8-14 who are seeking ways to prepare their kids to face the new realities of sex that are far more complex than the birds and the bees. Dr. Roberts’ book helps parents start conversations about sexting, online adult content, online predators and other topics that parents themselves never had to deal with growing up.

Kids are being exposed to sexual content at a younger and younger age, whether through the Internet, advertisements, or interactions with their peers. When children are exposed to this sexual information without context, or images of a graphic nature, they can experience lasting psychological effects with deep-seated ramifications.

Kids, Sex & Screens explains in easy-to-understand language what exactly the psychological effects of that exposure can look like and offers parents the tools and expert advice on how to handle it appropriately. Weaving eye-opening accounts from her own counselling practice with up-to-date psychological science, Dr. Jillian Roberts gives a full-fledged accounting of our sexualized society. Dr. Roberts pairs this explanation with advice and concrete actions that parents of both girls and boys desperately need.

Writing with warmth and authority, Dr. Roberts has an important message for parents: you can mitigate the risks your child faces navigating a sensational and sometimes disturbing world so that they grow up healthy and strong. Using her "7-Point Compass" as a navigational tool, Kids, Sex & Screens helps parents make sure their sons and daughters mature in a manner that is age-appropriate in a "mature content" world.

Dr. Roberts’ 7-Point Parental Compass:

1. Start Early
2. Give Unconditional Love
3. Stay Current
4. Smart Boundaries
5. Nurture Relationships
6. Lose Stigma & Prejudice
7. Build Resilience

After 20 years as a child psychologist and researcher in human sexuality, Dr. Jillian Roberts has seen drastic changes in the challenge’s kids are facing today, versus the ones their parents faced. Technology has forever changed the sexual landscape, and kids aren’t ready for it. She has witnessed the trauma children experience when stumbling onto sexual content they’re not ready to handle. And now she sounds the alarm with her new parenting book, “Kids, Sex & Screens: Raising Strong, Resilient Children in the Sexualized Digital Age.”

Earlier this year, Dr. Jillian Roberts also published another title, “On the internet,” from “The World Around Us Series,” introduces children to the basics of online safety in a story-based, conversational style. Using real-world examples set within the context of a child who is using the Internet for the first time and watching an older sibling interact with social media, Dr. Roberts takes readers through several common scenarios around parental supervision, online bullying and anonymity. She also includes examples of people who use the Internet to make the world a better place. On the Internet addresses common safety concerns in a child-centred way and offers easy-to-understand rationales as to why it's important to maintain boundaries online just as in real life.

The World Around Us series introduces children to complex cultural, social and environmental issues that they may encounter outside their homes, in an accessible way. Sidebars offer further reading for older children or care providers who have bigger questions. For younger children just starting to make these observations, the simple question-and-answer format of the main text will provide a foundation of knowledge on the subject matter.

Dr. Jillian Roberts is already a best-selling non-fiction children’s author with two critically-acclaimed book series about talking to kids about tough topics: “Just Enough” for ages 3-6 and “The World Around Us” for ages 5-8. Another five titles in the World Around Us series will be published in 2019. On April 4, 2019, Family Sparks was awarded the "10 to Watch" award from Douglas Magazine.

“Kids, Sex & Screens: Raising Strong, Resilient Children in the Sexualized Digital Age,” is currently available for on Amazon, and is published by Fair Winds/Quarto. To learn more, please visit

In short, your purchaser representative will certainly lead you past each action of the purchasing process while taking care of even more details that you can never think of.

Exactly how does a realtor come to a market price on a house? A real estate agent will certainly price your house similar to an appraiser should. A real estate agent contrasts your home to what has sold in the area in the past few months. They recognize the inflation in your area.

While advertising and marketing and also selling your home, your realtor will accentuate the positive elements of your home or business as well as minimize its drawbacks.

When an offer is made on your home, your local realtor will give experienced suggestions on whether to take the deal, submit a counter-offer or turn down the offer entirely.

At this point, you should have adequate confidence in your agent to trust the recommendations relating to the close of your sale. And after that, place the documents in the hands of your realtor.

Exactly how frequently do you wish to hear from your realtor? Do you want to have conferences at your residence rather than the office of the realtor? Evaluate the benefits of working with a skilled broker versus a novice.

As you can see, the duty of a purchaser representative and a homeowner representative are clearly different, yet their courses converge with each real estate deal. Whether you are purchasing or marketing, an expert real estate agent will certainly be your helper throughout.

As a leading listing agent in the profession of the best Lewisville TX real estate agents, Chad Odom is involved in the town as well and keeps aware about provincial developments which are invaluable in appraising the market.

A knowledgeable real estate broker may have much more understanding, however a newer real estate broker might have cutting-edge modern advertising suggestions, as well as much more energy and also time which could get your house marketed more promptly.

As you start the process of selling your house, you are encountered with many concerns. Just what is the best price? What should be done concerning advertising of my house? Exactly how do I make certain I'm dealing with certified customers? Just what should I do concerning the closing? The solutions of a qualified realtor expert are of the highest worth in responding to these questions.

What info is most important when marketing a residence? A seller needs to know what the state needs in addition to what the loan provider calls for when it concerns house sales transactions. A homeowner likewise needs to be aware of the duration for all transactions. If the time frame is not followed, the agreement could become null.

Advertising your house is more than placing a sign in the lawn and an advertisement in the classifieds. A local real estate agent needs to offer a selection of advertising and marketing devices including a yard sign, ad in regional realty publications, incorporation in the local multiple listing service, incorporation on their website and printed leaflets or sales brochures. This complex marketing strategy makes sure that your residential property is seen by hundreds of potential buyers.

Obtaining exclusive real estate leads are a recent convenience because exclusive online leads can help top real estate agents list new property owners, both luxury home owners and luxury buyers. The referral fee may be “pay at closing,” thereby requiring little or no up-front cost for the agent. This unique method is now considered as the most preferred way to secure the top real estate leads so long as the (1) referral fee is “pay at closing,” also called “paid at closing” or “paid after closing,” such as is the case with, and, the real estate leads are (2) exclusive, not sent to multiple agents, (3) centered on listing referral leads primarily, or (4) focused on seller listing referrals, but not focused on buyer leads, and (5) highlights the real estate agent name rather than the referring service business in order to (6) build the brand name of the agent which (7) provides long term growth and recognition for the real estate agent. The “real estate agent” then becomes the household brand rather than the “referring service” becoming the well-known brand. These exclusive real estate agent leads are determined to be the best exclusive real estate leads “pay at closing” by top real estate agents.

Why utilize a top seller real estate agent to offer your residence? Due to the fact that it is a good idea! It restricts your stress and anxiety, provides great advertising and marketing, uses high quality purchasers, provides important help in closing the sale and gives tranquility of mind and comfort.

Remember that the real estate agent is not paid unless your home is sold. The commission depends upon the real estate agent applying a successful marketing strategy. Time is restricted so agents take care to bring top quality purchasers to your property. Numerous real estate agents prequalify clients with a mortgage company prior to revealing to them a property. This is twice as valuable. The purchasers are serious.

Assess the broker’s agency. Try to find a real estate agent organization whose real estate agents could equip you with property knowledge as well as sources and offer first-rate client service.

Doesn't employing a lawyer take care of agreements? If you think an attorney drawing up a contract is complimentary and without concerns as well as responsibilities, you're incorrect. The lawyer does not have the time to stay on top of this to make certain every little thing needed is done on the house before closing. If you do want the attorney to take care of the information, you'll pay a lawyer’s charge, which is usually costly.

The best real estate agents in Lewisville Texas are blessed to have a top local real estate agent like Chad Odom in their midst who certainly brings a high standard of skill to the real estate business in Lewisville TX.

So let us assume you determined to offer your house by yourself and also you did discover someone that is interested as well as is currently prepared to buy your home. You are possibly not mindful of all your legal rights when it concerns bargaining and also finalizing the offer. A local real estate agent recognizes all the needed records that you will certainly need to ensure your sale goes smoothly. For instance, be mindful of all the disclosures that should be authorized and also all the legitimately binding contracts that the parties need to have for an arrangement.

Considering selling your house on your own, without the help and also specialist guidance of a certified real estate broker? You may want to re-consider your choice to do so, due to the fact that chances are great that you will not enhance your profit by selling your home. Could you possibly think your savings on commission will be your incentive after you go to a seminar on selling your home?

A house transaction is a complex collection of transactions with numerous parties. Not just is it time-consuming, examination and synchronization with professionals at every level is needed. Participation at a seminar does not make you a specialist on house marketing. Ordinary people will acquire only two to three residences in a lifetime, unless they are home financiers. A leading successful real estate broker will certainly have 5-10 deals monthly. A real estate agent with expertise as well as experience in the occupation will certainly be able to enhance your profit on a residence sale.

You constantly wish to make certain you are as informed as feasible when purchasing property so you make the best choices possible. As a result, ensure you check out any of the details whenever available.

During times when a property owner in Lewisville Texas is contemplating the concept of “sell my house quickly,” one should contact a dedicated local real estate agent professional like Chad Odom Real Estate Agent Lewisville TX, (972) 385-4322. Why should a person take chances when attempting to achieve the best price for a house in Lewisville Texas within a reasonable period of time?

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt offers a closer look at his many workbooks and courses of study

Gene Lingerfelt 1

Author and pastor Dr. Gene Lingerfelt of Faith Christian Center in Arlington, Texas, provides a closer look at his work.

ARLINGTON , TEXAS, USA, April 16, 2019 / — From “Spiritual Authority” to “Mighty Men of God,” Dr. Gene Lingerfelt has written a wide range of workbooks, courses of study, and additional books on faith, spirituality, success, and marriage. Dr. Lingerfelt is both an accomplished author and a beloved pastor. Today, he offers a closer look at his workbooks, courses of study, and other publications.

“I've written many workbooks and courses of study, including 'Discipleship,' 'Mighty Men of God,' and 'Spiritual Authority,'” reveals Dr. Lingerfelt, co-founder of Faith Christian Center in Arlington, Texas.

“‘Spiritual Authority’ focuses on themes of honor, duty, and loyalty, which are all solely lacking today’s culture,” explains Dr. Lingerfelt “To walk in the blessings of God, believers must understand authority, how it works, and how they can properly honor authority and authority figures in their every day lives.” “Dishonor and rebellion always hinder and block the blessings of God!”

Dr. Lingerfelt’s newest workbook is on Christian discipleship and it is simply entitled, “Discipleship.” Another new workbook entitled, “Bridges of Faith,” will be available later in 2019.

“Mighty Men of God” is one of Dr. Lingerfelt’s most popular workbooks. It teaches men how to be the men God has called them to be in today’s culture.

In addition to his many workbooks, Dr. Gene Lingerfelt has also authored numerous books including, “A Book of Prayer,” “80-10-10: Everyman's Road to Riches,” “10 Words That Can Change Your Life,” and “The God Touch: The Power of Partnership in Faith, Family and Finances.” “Any of these books if studied and implemented will dramatically change anyone’s life for the better! The KEY,” according to Dr. Lingerfelt, “is ACTION!”

Dr. Lingerfelt and his wife Sue Lingerfelt pioneered and co-founded Faith Christian Center in Arlington, Texas more than three decades ago in 1984. Both have degrees from Texas Christian University and Dr. Lingerfelt an earned doctorate from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Today, Dr. Lingerfelt has a reputation for his practical and relevant teaching. Today, the Lingerfelts continue faithfully teaching and preaching the Word of God every Sunday morning and Wednesday evening at Faith Christian Center in Arlington, Texas.

Max Hawthorne’s KRONOS RISING: KRAKEN 2 Makes for One Terrifying Beach Read

Amazon Bestselling Author Plans on Keeping Readers Out of the Water This Summer

BUCKINGHAM, PA, US, April 16, 2019 / — Two-time Book of the Year/People’s Choice Award winner Max Hawthorne, author of the popular KRONOS RISING series of action-adventure/thrillers, says his latest novel, KRONOS RISING: KRAKEN vol. 2 (Far From The Tree Press, LLC) is set to make waves – the kind with a little pee in them. “The appeal of a good beach read,” Hawthorne confided during a recent interview, “Is that it makes you wonder what might be out there, hidden beneath the surface and lurking just beyond the breakers . . . or maybe even closer. It’s what makes the sub-genre of horror known as ‘marine terror’ so thrilling, and helped make Peter Benchley’s immortal classic ‘JAWS’, and the record-breaking Spielberg film that followed, the stuff of legend.”

When asked what makes so many people inherently afraid of the sea (a phenomena known as Thalassophobia), Hawthorne replied, “We humans are terrestrial creatures. Out in the water and bereft of technology, we’re clumsy and almost defenseless. Speed-wise, we’re veritable snails. Even the fastest Olympic swimmers are slower than a sting ray or sea turtle. And, let’s face facts, legends of man-eating monsters exist for a reason. Whether we’re talking sharks, giant squid, or something not yet seen, most legends have a basis in reality.”

Asked for a synopsis of his book, Hawthorne said, “I don’t like to do spoilers. This is the fifth book in the series. In book one (KRONOS RISING), readers were introduced to a gigantic marine reptile known as a pliosaur, arguably, the biggest and deadliest predator of all time. It battled sperm whales, Orcas, submersibles, and even a small ship of mercenaries, and left a swathe of destruction in its wake. The book was a huge hit – so much so that Amazon added it to their Prime Reading List. From there, the challenge was to not just keep the series alive, but to keep it interesting. With the KR: Kraken books, I’m proud to say I’ve managed to do that. There are new and relatable characters, improvements in technology (Kronos Rising: Kraken 1 & 2 take place 30 years in the future), action scenes that will make your head spin, and, of course, even more terrifying beasts. The readers eat them up; or is it vice versa?”

Hawthorne’s legions of fans (they literally call themselves “The Legions of Kronos”) have praised his books for not only providing ultra-realism, but nail-biting suspense that keeps them turning the pages and asking for more. “I had one reader write in her Amazon review that my book was the scariest thing she’s ever read. She said she cleaned her whole house in two days because she would start reading and, when it got too much for her, she’d put the book down and clean something to take her mind off it. Then, after she’d calmed down, she’d go back. It was very flattering,” Hawthorne said. “I don’t set out to scare people, however. I try to tell a gripping story and I guess, based on the subject matter, the fear factor tends to be inherent.”

When the question arose as to just how frightening the new book is, Hawthorne grinned and said, “Well, I did email the manufacturer of a certain brand of adult diapers, asking if they would provide coupons for a free pair to put inside each book. I got the distinct impression they thought I was out of my mind.” He chuckled and added, “Honestly, I don’t think my novels are any scarier than, say, popular movies in my genre. But I have upped the ante in this last book. Besides the Kraken, which is horrifying in its own right, Captain Natalya Dragunova, one of my protagonists, leads an armed landing party onto the shores of Diablo Caldera, the Cretaceous-era island where the series’ pliosaurs originated. No spoilers, but let’s just say that Natalya and her team soon discover that, on Diablo, even dry land isn’t safe.”

Poetry by the Sea: A Global Conference tickets selling out as demand grows to attend one of the premier gatherings of poets in US.

Poetry by the Sea offers “poets who write the kind of verse that makes the hair stand up on my arms.””

— Michael Shewmaker

Poetry by the Sea: A Global Conference Tickets Going Fast!

Register Now to Attend Madison, Connecticut, Gathering of Superstar Poets!

Madison, Conn – April 11, 2019 – Poets from around the world will soon gather in Madison, Connecticut – and you still have time to join them!

Registration is open for the 2019 “Poetry by the Sea; a Global Conference,” held May 21 through May 24 at the Mercy by the Sea Conference Center – a 33-acre sanctuary on the shores of Long Island Sound, private beach included.
The brainchild of poet, teacher and conference Director Kim Bridgford, Poetry by the Sea offers a cornucopia of all things poetic, delivered by some of the top poets writing and teaching today.

Or as Michael Shewmaker, the Jones Lecturer in Poetry at Stanford University puts it, Poetry by the Sea offers “poets who write the kind of verse that makes the hair stand up on my arms.”
The 2019 conference features an all-star cast.

National Book Award and MacArthur Foundation grant winner Terrance Hayes will deliver the keynote address.
Alicia E. Stallings, National Book Critics Award finalist and director of the Athens, Greece Poetry Center, will give the annual conference lecture.

“I Can’t Talk About the Trees Without the Blood,” collection author Tiana Clark, Milton Kessler Poetry Book Award finalist Sean Thomas Dougherty, Pushcart Prize winner and Stanford University Stegner Fellow Richie Hofmann, and National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist Adrian Matejka will give featured readings.

You can see the full Poetry by the Sea schedule by clicking here. You can also visit the webpage,

But time is running out.

One day workshops, “Poetry and Healing,” with poet and Harvard Medical School Professor Rafael Campo, and “Show and Tell; Beyond the Concrete” with Shewmaker have sold out.

Poets know why Poetry by the Sea is in such demand.

“It's a jewel of a conference – several days of eating, breathing, and sleeping poetry in one of the loveliest spots on the East Coast,” said Able Muse Book Award winner Melissa Balmain, who will lead a three-day workshop.

“I love how diverse the attendees are, and how even the most famous poets there seem to care very little about hierarchy,” said Balmain, who recalls “chatting with this funny, friendly woman at one of the cocktail receptions, and it took me a couple moments to realize, holy cats, she's (former US Poet Laureate) Rita Dove.”

“Poetry by the Sea gives us a community and sense of solidarity,” said poet Martin Espáda, who will also teach a three-day workshop. “It offers a sense of urgency. We’re all there to accomplish the same thing, acting in concert to find a voice.”

“Poetry by the Sea is a significant event because it is a conference where writers gather to be in each other's company in service to an art,” added Shewmaker, who has attended Poetry by the Sea as a participant, reader and faculty. “There is space for everyone–beginners and experts alike. As someone who grew up largely without that sort of community, it is truly a gift.”

Creating a diverse and supportive community was one of Poetry by the Sea founder Bridgford’s goals with the first 2015 conference.

“I love to balance ethnicity and gender so that many constituency groups can be honored and represented,” Bridgford said. “I dreamt of bringing the best people together for days of poetry and conversation, to discuss the poetic wonder, that magic. I wanted to have different ages and voices. We have about every age in the audience. High school students have presented.”
Bridgford said Yale University professor and friend Dolores Hayden suggested the Mercy by the Sea Retreat Center location.
“If you were imagining the perfect setting for a conference, it would be this gorgeous place,” Bridgford said. “We even have our own chef.”

Attendees agree.

“The Sound is beautiful and it invites a certain type of introspection that is conducive to the writing process,” said Shewmaker. “I always come away from the conference feeling energized.”

Poet Annie Finch, who will offer metrical consultations, said “the location is serene, a lovely former convent just a stone's throw from the water. The labyrinth is an inspiration to walk and the giant beech tree, hundreds of years old, can dictate poems to you if you know how to listen.”

“Did I mention the food,” said Balmain. “The kitchen staff deserves a Michelin star.”

Poetry by the Sea offers several attendance packages, with on-site and offsite housing rates. A limited number of scholarships are available. Evening attendance tickets are also available.

Rooms at the Mercy by the Sea Center are limited, but there are a variety of housing options available nearby, including hotels and Bed & Breakfasts.
