    Is there a place for children to get help that have been exposed to porn and sexual abuse? Is there a place that they can go as an inpatient for a few weeks for intense therapy to help with the trauma of what they have experienced. Please contact me via the e-mail that I’ve listed.

    Is it me or are calls being more rushed than in the past? I enjoy listening to New Life, and am a Club New Life member, but it sounds like since the push for New Life TV began, some callers are being cut off very quickly. Some of the callers today and in the past few programs did not have an opportunity to fully share what was going on. Advice is offered before all the information is gathered. Is this on purpose so that more people will tune in to the internet TV program? I agree that some people drone on and on and need to be stopped, but not everyone. Thanks for listening.

    Brooklyn, agree. Also, I think an increased tendency to try to move to the next caller while the prior caller still on the line….

    I noticed that too, people being rushed off before they were really heard. I understand they want to get in as many callers as possible but I would say that it is better to have a few really good calls that have helped someone than a lot of calls that have been rushed through because a lot of people who don’t call in are also being helped.

    I felt bad for the last caller having to deal with son in law. I work with one of those types. His wife just left him, and he is learning there is no replacement doormat for him. There are not many women willing to be ordered around while he sits around getting drunk. Now he is a train wreck, turn all his issues onto others, as if they have the problem. He is totally dependent on others since he cannot even read. He goes into rages and tells people off after they have helped him and still he thinks he is desirable. Imagine carrying issues around from childhood into your 50s, and still denying things. His only way to get attention is to go into rages, and say things to make other people mad. He enjoys making others mad. Why would anyone to bother with this guy? I wouldn’t want to see his kids that bad.
