We all know people that shouldnt be parents, This week we give you a bunch of examples of people that shouldnt have had children or should have given them up for adoption. We also have the top 3 worlds most unfit parents! If your guilty of any of these examples, call DYFS on yourself!
September 11th, 2014 marks an anniversary of the day the world watched the United States of America tend to an act of terror on it's own soil. According to New York News & Politics, it's estimated that over 10,000 children lost their parents on September 11, 2001. Imagine learning your parents are dead due to a suicide bomber!
Imagine learning your parents consider you dead to them (upon learning you identify as gay or lesbian). Daniel Ashley Pierce's parents said just about as much in this (now viral) video.
A recent Rolling Stones article: The Forsaken: A Rising Number of Homeless Gay Teens Are Being Cast Out by Religious Families offers us a critical look at the terror some parents strike in the hearts of their kids when they learn of their sexual orientation.
In this episode, we'll talk about this terror with an expert who deals with youth who face homelessness due to a variety of factors, including coming out.
Meet Raquel (Rocki) Simões, Program Manager for Avenues for Homeless Youth in Minneapolis MN. She manages the GLBT Host Home Program. Rocki invites us to explore deeper aspects of youth homelessness briefly outlined in her blog-post on VillageQ.
Despite the reporting over the years that spanking is for naught, many parents still seem to do it. More than half of the mothers questioned in the Pediatrics study reported spanking their kids at age 3 and at age 5. Spanking teaches hitting, it's that simple So that if you don't get your way and you're bigger than me, you can hit me to get your way. That's the lesson of spanking.
A national survey showed more than half of women and three-quarters of men in the United States believe a child sometimes needs a "good hard spanking.
The majority of parents say they spank their kids. Various factors increase the likelihood, including geographic location (children in the South are spanked the most), family income (less money means more spanking), race (African-American mothers spank their children more than other ethnic groups), and religion (parents more fundamentalist in their religious beliefs spank more than those who are less so). But all in all, it's a pretty clear picture
94% of 3- and 4-year-olds have been spanked at least once during the past year, according to one study
74% of mothers believe spanking is acceptable for kids ages 1 to 3, says another study
61% of parents condone spanking as a "regular form of punishment" for young children, according to a different study
So if hard numbers can't prove that spanking is good or bad or safe or dangerous, perhaps it's not a data issue to begin with. The question of whether spanking works, or is safe, is beside the point. Maybe the question should be "Is it really, absolutely necessary?"
Do parents dread sending their children back to school?
"As much as a teacher grades students, parents grade themselves and wonder if they're giving their child everything he or she needs to be successful," said Emily Kirkpatrick, Vice President of the National Center for Family Literacy. "The NCFL wants to reassure parents that implementing straightforward, consistent educational support will make a realizable difference in their children's success."
But one wonders how much will poverty, race and discipline disparities play in the success of the rural poor and urban Black child. Listen to the advice of our Queen Mother, Dr. Adelaide Sanford as she gives "Back to School" tips to parents on how to monitor your child for successful outcomes.
We are off to another great start this school year parents. I must ask this question, "How does sports play a huge role in the lives of our children with a learning disability, ADHD, Autism, Asperger's, Dyslexia, OCD, and more"? This question will be addressed on this show and I am sure many of the things our guest will talk about will be eye openers.
Spend an evening learning about brain development, function, and how our innovative program helps children with behavioral, social an/or academic challenges. If your child struggles with sensory processing, impulse control, focus, ADHD, OCD, Tourettes, Autism, a Learning Disability or developmental delays, this is a must attend event!
This episode will be fast-pace, fun, and eye-opening: *What does the human brain need to mature properly, * 10 Things to stimulate healthy brains at home, * 9 Things to stimulate healthy brains at school, What's going on inside the brains of children with ... ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Autism/Asperger's, Dyslexia, OCD, and Processing Disorder. * Why are these disorders increasing so rapidly? * What new techniques are helping children overcome these issues?
All of these issues and more will be addressed during this great show, so join in on the conversation.
parents we will add a little to our conversation. We will also discuss the 1st Annual Recruit757 Basketball Showcase. In addition, "NCAA BOARDS GIVES 5 BIGGEST CONFERENCES MORE POWER" (article dtd 8/7/14)??? What does this mean to you as a parent if anything? Will this have an impact on your child's decision? Will these conferences now dominate the college culture?
Next article - "JUDGE RULES AGAINST NCAA IN O'BANNON CASE". Where are we on this again as parents of these athletes? This did take place under our watch, before many of them reached the age of 21 years old. So we would have been major stakeholders in their transition. Not to say we are entitled any form of funding just reasonable input
For the first 18 or so years of your life, your parent’s job was to teach, provide and guide, often giving unsolicited advice or overriding your choices. Then comes the day when you’re grown and on your own, and your parents can’t seem to loosen their grip – allowing you to be an independent adult.
There are many adults who feel that their parents don’t know their place, and over-step their boundaries – going as far as picking the right man or woman as your mate; telling you how to raise your children; and even being too involved in your relationship or marriage.
On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to delve into those “controlling parents who won’t butt-out” of their adult children’s life.

Back-to-school can become more complicated in a co-parenting situation. With so much going on in both of your lives, it is difficult to keep it all together...after-school activities, sports, band, you name it.
As your children grow the requirements and demands of you will also change. Being proactive about their lives will allow you to stay in control of yours. As parents you'll be happy to know - a solution is out there.
Listen in as we talk: Back to school and co-parenting
Sometimes parents can take things a bit too far. They do what they can to protect their little ones, but wind up making things much, much worse. Kids have it hard in 2014 and although it takes a delicate approach to raising them, balance is the key. You have to use the right amount of subtleness and the right amount of craziness to make sure your kid gets through life.
What are some of the signs that you're an overprotective parent?
Can the "crazy dad" help/hurt his daughter's social life?
What's the best way to develop a child's independence?
Also on the show, what's the difference between territorial and insecure when it comes to a relationship?
