Talking Points on What Dr. Cira Can Say in an Interview
About Explaining Protests to kids:

  1. Parents, especially White Parents, should be having conversations with children about race anyway, protests or not. Institutionalized racism is as old as America, so parents need to be talking to their children about power and privilege early on. Reading books that discuss racism and have different characters with different races, ethnicities, and cultures is recommended. Only by starting this conversation early can we ever expect to have a more loving, less hateful world.

Baby Steps: How New Parents Can Ask for Help

Interview: Dr. Colleen Cira, Psy.D.

From Dr. Colleen Cira
On Help for New Parents:

1) Before you can tell anyone what you need, you need to KNOW what you need. A new baby can come with lots of stress for lots of reasons, so every time you notice that you’ve overwhelmed, sad or anxious, stop for a moment and consider the origin of your overwhelm. Do you feel like you could pull out all of your hair when you look at your overflowing laundry basket? Do you become overwhelmed with dread when you think about needing to find something to cook and eat? Do you want to cry every time your baby cries? Is feeding your baby a daunting task?? Only by figuring out what specifically is feeling overwhelming can you start to address it so just start to notice.

What? No Pap Smear Screenings After 30???

The latest guidelines are still controversial.  Many women are still following the old guidelines.

What Dr. Mimi Secor Can Say in an interview:

  • It is very important to get your doctor to explain the not so new guidelines (2012) that are still controversial (Switching to every 5 years at 30… women are still freaked out about it.) If the doctor doesn’t know about the new guidelines, you may need a new doctor.
  • We need to trust the science as doctors and be able to explain it.
  • The future looks like we will have guidelines to NOT do pap smears in the future and just HPV testing.  It’s been proposed by the U.S. … task force just not rolled out yet.
  • The vaccination is SO misunderstood and SO effective.
  • Not enough young kids are getting it and we have a very vulnerable group.
  • HPV prevents oral, cervical, anal – 60% of oral cancer is related to HPV (throat).
