Missouri Viewpoints First Radio Program Released.

(Columbia, MO) What was Missouris best-known online public affairs show transitions into a radio program. Missouri Viewpoints first program is complete and available for radio stations to air.

The show has a back-to-school theme for the first episode. That timeliness will be one of the programs assets in the months and years ahead. Producer and host Mike Ferguson interviews Shawn Marie Edgington, nutrition expert Dr. Catherine Peterson and blended-family expert Dan Snell.

Edgington is a best-selling author of The Parents Guide to Texting, Facebook and Social Media and discusses the warning signs of online harassment, cyber-bullying and sexting that parents need to watch for. She also offers tips on dealing with these problems if they occur to your child.

Dr. Peterson talks about back-to-school nutrition and how healthy breakfasts and lunches can improve your childs success in the classroom. Even with the hectic school-year schedules, Peterson says you can make and pack easy, cheap and healthy meals.

In our Expert Viewpoints segment, he answers questions from frustrated parents and young people and also discusses how friends and family of those in a step-family can help their blended family friends succeed.
