Please join us for another episode of Black Fathers Radio this evening at 8 est, as we welcome Anitra Scott to the show. Anitra will be joining us to discuss the Det. Brian Stevenson Purple Kiss Foundation (http://purplekisses.org/Ho?me.html).
Purple kisses honors the life and legacy of former Baltimore City police officer and detective Brian Stevenson, and gives hope and help to the youth of Baltimore, just as Det. Stevenson did throughout his life, which was taken from him violently.
We will also be joined by other officers, who will discuss what it means to be in a position such as an officer in Baltimore City, and put your life on the line everyday.
What are the impacts of losing a father/father-figure on a family? A community? A people? If you have experienced that loss, please call in and join the conversation. We want to hear from you in the hopes that your loss will serve as others' gain, be their strength, give them encouragement. Or maybe you'll get encouragement of your own. Please call in 646-727-1205.
This morning the Most High took me on a spiritual excursion taking a peek at the ancient sentiments of our hebrew fathers. Trust me. There is a powerfully distinct difference between what was the zealous convictions of our people of old as compared to today. May we all awaken to perceive what is necessary that we be revived to become again a strong people in the earth.
We'll be talking about some of the efforts going on around Father's Day, including an event that I will be hosting, Black Fathers Rock!! Vol. II: A Hip-Hop/Spoken Word Tribute to Fatherhood on Fri., June 17th. Join us. If you know of any events coming up, spread the word to our listeners.
Juvenile delinquency is a pressing problem in America, with a rise in the number of
single parents that are raising children without the financial, emotional, and relational help of
another adult. Unlike studies conducted in the past, many researchers have begun to focus on the
influence of a father-figure, not just the influence of the mother on his/her child. Whether the
quality of relationship or amount of time that is spend with a father-figure has a positive impact
is unknown. However, it is clear that the subjects who have been adjudicated are in need of
effective prevention and programming efforts.
It is important to empathize that father-absence does not necessarily lead to delinquency,
developmental deficits, and/or render the child with an absent father-figure inferior in
psychological functioning to the child with a present father-figure in their lives. Children who
have absent-fathers are far from a homogeneous group with almost an infinite number of patterns
that can be specified. Many factors need to be considered in evaluating the father-absent
situation including the length of separation from the father, type of separation, cause of
separation, the child’s age and gender, the child’s constitutional characteristics, the mother’s
reaction to the father’s absence, the quality of mother-child interactions, the family’s
socioeconomic status, and the availability of surrogate models.
The number of family risks to which children are exposed often best predicts how well
children will be able to adjust in the world and conform to social norms.
