Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2008
Today, the BAM Radio Network (BRN), a joint project of Moving & Learning and Jackstreet Media, reached agreement to provide BRN programming to the Families for Conscious Living (FCL) community. BRN will provide Families for Conscious Living (http://www.familiesforconsciousliving.org) with a new channel for educating parents and help keep their members abreast of the latest insights in early childhood development. BRN programs will be streamed on the Families for Conscious Living web site and made available on demand to the organization's 600 members. BRN programming is available online 24/7, via podcast, and will be distributed monthly through FCL's newsletter. Body, Mind and Child (http://www.bodymindandchild.com), BRN's premier program, features interviews with early childhood experts and is aimed at shattering parenting myths and bringing parents the best, integrated, scientifically supported advice on the development of a child's mind and body.
"There is so much misinformation out there and the typical parent is simply unprepared to sort it out," said Rae Pica, an early childhood expert with 30 years experience who is co-founder of the BAM Radio Network and host of Body, Mind and Child. "We're excited to collaborate with Families for Conscious Living to help parents get the accurate information they need to raise children who are truly prepared for life," said Pica.
Families for Conscious Living is a an eleven-year-old, grassroots, national nonprofit "by parents and for parents" that provides resources and support for families that wish to make compassionate and informed choices.
"FCL is proud to partner with the BAM Radio Network to bring progressive and informative radio programs to our savvy, conscientious parents," stated Lisa Reagan, FCL president and co-founder. "BAM's promise to help parents sort through the 'myths and the hype' and to get to the 'heart of what really matters' supports FCL's tenets of 'heart-centered parenting' and will be a welcome tool in our members' 'conscious living tool kit!' Body, Mind and Child is a wonderful gift to all families."
About BAM Radio Network
The BAM Radio Network was launched to address the severe imbalance in parenting practices caused by the "commercialization of parenting" and the emphasis on intellectual development that excludes the critical role of the mind/body connection in early childhood. Created by leading early childhood experts, the programming challenges the popular genre of parenting notions that has given rise to commercial products like Baby Einstein, Brainy Baby and lapware, all of which claim to accelerate a child's mental development in the face of science that suggests otherwise. The network is a joint venture between New Hampshire-based Moving & Learning and Los Angeles-based Jackstreet Media.
