"And mental health treatment when it comes to young men and how they cope in and how they do with stress. What are we seeing right now? Well, in order for a young man to cope. You have to be clear about what their natural growth process would be. What are you really feeling with? And my experience with young men is that they are really by young men. I mean, like 18 to around 30. They are trying to build their life. In in the social world. So this is what this is what this person wants to do. If you're going to help him cope, then you're basically helping them understand? The challenge that they're facing right? And so that's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to help them understand the challenge that they're facing and then help them understand themselves and how they can tackle that challenge. Let's talk about those challenges. Tell me a little bit more about that. Well, I mean, You know the challenge is that things there's on attitude of Extreme here. In our culture. People are isolating people are there's also people are angry People are disillusioned, so there's a lot of tension. Now my aim with these young men is to teach them not to not to succumb to these tensions, but to learn to rise above them. So what That means is that the young man that I'm working with I'm telling them you don't have the luxury to sit and wait this challenge out. Meaning you can't just go in your in your room, compares house and wait till it's over. And my approach working with these young men has paid off big time because you know, people thought it was gonna be a month long. Then they thought it was going to be six months longer than they thought to be a yearlong. Now maybe it's another year. There's there's nobody who's going to be able to say definitively when this challenge is over, and that's the nature of the challenge. So the first thing I'm teaching young men to do is to accept the challenge and to unaccepted. They don't know when it's gonna end. So stop. Waiting for a miracle and, you know, get into action. And so that's what we've been doing. So as a parent if you're worried If maybe it's on your radar. What are the kinds of things that you should look for? That? Maybe you need to pay attention to that number one question I'm getting asked. And for me, the toughest part of that question is because For me. It's so obvious that this is a problem. It is like asking a person who's stuck in a rip tide in the ocean. Whether they need help or not, Of course they need help. If your if your child could figure this out, that's very doubtful. So they do need help. The question really is what type of help do they need? And how can you as a parent help? Okay, So So what are your options as a parent? What if you come to that point where you decide, you know? Hey, look weak. Things aren't going well. I feel it. What? What are my options? What do I do? Well, it depends on what you're talking about. Are you talking about your kid is like in the house, you know, using drugs, depressed, playing video games all day. What is it? That's your scenario? What do you What do you do? So well, the first thing is Don't kid yourself that again. You're just waiting like Oh, well, when, when? When cold. It goes away, They'll go back to normal. Get rid of that delusion. And I would say, you know, start researching different forms of advisors and counselors that you can speak to in your area and start to use professionals like myself who have been dealing with this problem. For a decade or two decades through we can give you some some feedback. Um, my first feedback would be, uh, don't this is not a problem these air, not problem. Addiction, mental health issues. Elektronik addiction these air, not problems that get better with a lack of help. They get worse. So my first thing would be, you know, let's partner to try to offer some help. If you do have sons, who are big individual were big into video games. At the big you know, before the pandemic even began. When should you really start is apparent because I'm assuming that a lot of times some of the warning signs may pop up even earlier. So what? What do you look for? Even before that, well for me, and I'm biased because of the extreme examples that I see. For me. I start early. I have two kids, one of mine and one is five and I'm already you could say, intervening to help them develop a life. In the real world. So for me, it can't start early enough. Give me an example. What would you do say with your youngest? What would be an example of that? So, so with the youngest, I would Um, do things with him outside, find find activities that he might enjoy. Do it with him and really be there alongside alongside them as you're teaching them. How beautiful license And that is really the essence of my method for working with young men, and I wrote about that in the book. The primal method is the power off teaching through example and screw walking alongside. Another human being, so no matter how young they are, the beauty is the natural inclination of the human organism is to live. It's to love. It's to be happy. So it's all there, but they just need somebody alongside them that they are willing to be with. Let me ask you this. What is your thought on tough love? And what does that mean to you? A great question. So for me, I'll start with what it needs for me, eh? So tough love for me is when you care enough about a person. Bet you respect them enough. You have enough of a vision of their life that you are willing to be fully honest. And strong with them, and you're not looking to be their best friend. So for parents, you know you don't have to be your child best friend. What you do have to be their parents. You have to be a guide. You have to be a supporter. You have to be honest, It doesn't mean that you control them because you can't So for me, talked love means being fully honest and being fully present with another human being, and, um, and that means challenging them as well. S o. That's the first part. Okay. And what was the second part of the question? It was. What do I feel about using that, right, right? Yeah. Well s O. What I've found is it is an absolutely necessary tool. To working with young men. It is a tool that can only be used with skill. So it is a learned skill. And you can on Lee use that skill of tough love or what I call emphatic challenge. You can only use that skill in proportion to how much trust in connection you've built with the individual that you are being tough with. If you have no connection with, um, if there's no trust. If there's no respect, you can forget about the tough love business. So first you establish a bond in the connection. They trust you. They see that you're a person of integrity, then you could be honest with them if they start to play that role off. Challenging them. It makes a lot of sense, and I like that you you do dive in a little bit deeper in your your book. Do I give a lot of examples of what I mean? It's the first step of teaching people because there's there's two tools. There is Empathic support, which is, you know, something that is, in my opinion over practiced today. Uh, that's where you very empathetic. You're very nurturing your very caring. It's a great skill, but if it's over used and if it's not complemented with emphatic challenge Then you're really not giving the person what they need to grow. You're just be us immune to be quite honest, okay? Okay, so again, remind folks of of your book and where where to find it. So the primal method on available on Amazon and distribution sites Gregory Kufa goes. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you so much Robin Rock and up. Next we have Josephine Lee, the Chicago Children's choirs, president and artistic director and joining her will be Kota Lewis, a 17 year old singer from the Chicago Children's Choir. Hello. How are you? I'm wonderful. Thanks for having us. Of course, Thanks for being here with us today. We really appreciate it. And I also have Cody Lewis, a 17 year old singer here with the Chicago Children's Choir. How are you? I'm good. How are you? I'm so good.

"Apartments is my parking space. It's perfect. I love that one. Put him on like an old couch or something. You know what? I'm dibs. It's perfect. You know, You've seen him in all different places and people having a lot of fun with it. I know Lauren. You'll appreciate this. He's on the throne from Game of Thrones. I've also seen him like replacing brand when he's in his wheelchair like standing around the family, obviously sitting around the family, but that one looks really authentic. It's great. Another game of Thrones. When Abby they're just so there's so many out there. It's really, really incredible. Hey, I just want a quick word or two about vaccinations. Lauren, I heard you on the news. You talked about this. There's a new roll out starting Monday. Lot of new people are gonna qualify to get this vaccine. But I think the issue is here. How do you sign up? Where do you go? How do you get it? And I'm just I just want to solicit from listeners right now, if you're listening right now, and you have been successful getting an appointment. Good for you. First of all, Let us know. Share us What happened. How you did that? 312981 72 100. If you've been unsuccessful, let's hear from you, too. I'm just hearing from them just watching his things cross your doctor or what he is saying most people are going to get them through their health care provider or their pharmacy. And so those are the two places where they're the kind of indicating the rollout will be so starting Monday. People 65 years of age and older can qualify and essential workers to what's an essential worker, right? That's that's always a good question who qualifies? Who's under that umbrella? Well, it's people who work in group homes, looking with the release here, homeless shelters, places like that living facilities. Correctional workers and first responders. They qualify. You're gonna qualify now. Grocery store workers. You qualify to workers in manufacturing factory settings without brakes. I'm gonna get some more clarification on that. Daycare K through 12 in early education workers. You qualified to public transit, manufacturing and agricultural workers, government and postal workers. So that's the new phase rollout. But here's the catch. There are 360,000 Chicagoans over 65. And an estimated 300,000 essential workers that fall in that category. So they're guessing that only about 5% will actually get the vaccine next week, so it's going to be rather slow. Roll out and a lot of these people that are left out or, like the people who are in their eighties that still live alone in their house. You know, they're not in a living facility or assistant living or nursing home or anything like that. And they're so confused. They're like, Where do we go? They're kind of left out because they love it home alone. So I hope everyone how wonder how hard is it for someone in that position? If you're not all that Internet or Texas can't exactly Michael, my mother in law Perfect example in Wisconsin. We're gonna help her, You know, so she could get an appointment. Well, that's it. I've seen people are helping out others. So there's somebody you can help out and do this. You can get him in line. I think we're gonna find out more 1 32, because Chicago Tribune has really took a deep dive into this comprehensive. Look at what to do. What's you know how you how you go through this process? How you sign up. What's the next phase? And then the phases beyond that, In the time line for all of this, there's new information from health officials even today, they were speaking too. So we'll we'll update you on all of that coming up it 1 30. Hey, I got to get to this. I don't If you saw this last night I didn't catch it Live. I saw it this morning when I woke up.
