Listen to teachers explain the problems they see with Common Core along with parents upset about the effects on their children. Hear why Common Core is turning education upside down. Let's face the facts that this is a federal intrusion and when parents and teachers can no longer help a child then it is time to stop calling it education as it will lead to indoctrination among other things. Hear parents and teachers fighting for America's future and the future of those they hold dearest in their own homes. There are lessons to be learned from the past and the present. No one that loves children can sit on the sidelines and allow a system to beat up a child inside the mind and Common Core does exactly that to the point that one child psychiatrist calls it "cognitive abuse" and there is even now a mental health problem known as the "common core syndrome". The Obama administration is proving to be dangerous for this country as we have seen by the wrong actions with Benghazi-gate, Bergdahl-gate, Obamacare and now ObamaCore or Common Core (that David Axelrod proudly calls an Obama Initiative) . Time to put a halt to it and it starts with understanding--hear from those affected.

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.
