Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 10.22.28 AM

A new hashtag has gone viral on Twitter in the aftermath of the Jian Ghomeshi scandal. The Canadian radio broadcaster, 47, is making headlines for allegedly engaging in non-consensual and violent sexual acts with several women.

#BeenRapedNeverReported is filling up Twitter feeds since Oct. 26 — the day the former CBC radio host wrote a lengthy public statement via Facebook, saying that he had been fired from the CBC due to his personal sex life being revealed.

In his post, Ghomeshi stated that while he enjoys consensual, rough sex and BDSM, he has never abused a woman. He went on to claim that a “jilted” ex-girlfriend has taken on a smear campaign against him, and the CBS fired him because of his “private life.”

When the news first broke, many sided with Ghomeshi, not being able to believe that the popular Canadian radio host of Q could ever partake in such violent acts.

Are you looking for an interactive way to bond with your kids? Are you hoping to find tools to lessen the stress and anxiety in your household?

New author Jasmine Bharucha has penned the perfect book for families hoping to reconnect with one another, titled, Who Am I?: An Interactive Guide to Self-Discovery for Kids & Parents.

Growing up in Mumbai, India, the author-singer would often ask questions about why some children lived in such dire poverty and she didn’t. Jasmine’s journey of self-reflection led her to write her first children’s book, Who Am I?, which presents simple concepts for children – and adults – to better understand themselves and their connection to the world around them.

Who Am I? has received glowing praise from teachers, parents and kids (as well as speaker/author Dr. Gabor Maté). The thoughtful and interactive book is composed of a simple series of concepts and illustrations, aimed at encouraging mindfulness by helping children connect with themselves and others.

With high rates of anxiety and stress among many youth, Who Am I? is an accessible resource to help kids feel more confident by tapping into their potential. It also includes a breathing exercise, questions and answers, a glossary and a journaling exercise.

One Woman’s Heartbreaking Story & A Look at Grandparents’ Rights

120783814__378277c

When relationships break down, or a family member dies, children are often caught in the crossfire of hard feelings and unresolved issues.

Children are not meant to be raised in isolation, and a healthy relationship with grandparents, aunts, uncles and other friends and family members can help foster a child’s sense of well-being, especially after a devastating loss.

In a heartbreaking story, a concerned friend named Renee* opens up to HerScoop about the death of her longtime best friend Stacy, who died of complications with Lupus at the tender age of 32.

To add to the devastating story, Stacy died when her two sons were just 7 years and 22 months-old. And now, Stacy’s husband has shut out her parents (their only grandchildren since Stacy was their only child).

Staying loyal to her lifelong BFF, Renee talks about the heartbreaking situation, not only of Stacy’s untimely death, but of the messy situation for her family members that are left behind.

Renee shares Stacy’s story in hopes of gaining any advice, providing support for other families in similar situations, and empowering grandparents who have lost visitation and access to their grandchildren.
