Conversations with Dr. D Ivan Young goes on an in-depth journey through the toughest hood around--single motherhood.



Ms. Kia is a single mother of two sons and author of the book Dear God, Do Deadbeat Dads Go To Heaven? The book takes an uncensored look at her struggles with raising her children  and the clash when she had to shift from "independent woman" to "dependent mother." An excerpt reads:


Dear God,
All I want to know is if Deadbeat Dads go to Heaven. As a child I didn't understand it, in college I studied it/analyzed it/debated it, and as an adult I repeated the baby-mommy bullshit cycle.

A Mad Mother


Minista Jazz is a "maverick preacher," award-winning celebrity hairstylist, and motivational speaker. She has her Master's degree in Metaphysics, but her most important credential is being a single mother for 13 years. Her mission is to uplift others, especially single moms, to move past the fear and pain that they often feel and step into their own power.


Join Dr. D Ivan Young and his guests for a discussion on single motherhood and questions such as can a single mother be the mom and dad, and should she have to be? How does she provide the "male" qualities that a child needs? Who is she beyond the stigma of a single mother?
