    Parents Perspective ........ How Does the Sneaker Industry Impact Our Children?

    in Parents

    Parents after view the ESPN 30 for 30 Sole Man, a few thoughts came to mind. The first thing that hit home with me is how our children from within our communities have been used as marketing tools to generate an extremely lucrative profit for the sneaker industry giants. I am talking about the Nike, Adidas, and Under Armor's of the industry. How and Why were they able to come into our communities and use our most valuable resource for their gain?  Even the ledgendary Sonny V has challenged the intent behind the huge vehicle of community destruction.  Let's dialog on this topic Sun. Night at 9:30pm est here on the Parents Coaching Parents Network

    THE PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECT ON TEENS AND CHILDREN WHO PARENTS ARE INCARCERATED

    in Social Networking

    On any given day in America, it is estimated that more than 1.5 million children have a parent incarcerated in a state or federal prison. And more than 10 million children are living with a parent who has come under some form of criminal justice supervision at some point in the child’s life.


    The Annie E. Casey foundation discovered the compelling needs and circumstances of children with incarcerated parents, such as:



    Since 1990, the number of female prisoners had grown by nearly 50 percent; three-quarters of incarcerated women are mothers, and two thirds have children under age 18.
    Most law enforcement agencies lack training and protocols on where to place children when a parent is arrested and, often, ultimately incarcerated.
    Approximately 10 percent of children with incarcerated mothers and 2 percent of children with incarcerated fathers are in foster care.
    There are a disparate impact on minorities, with African-American children nine times more likely and Hispanic children three times more likely than white children to have a parent in prison.
    Despite widespread statements that children with incarcerated parents are many times more likely than other children to be incarcerated as adults.
    Risk factors such as parental mental illness, parental substance abuse, family violence and poverty were present in many children’s homes and lives prior to their parents’ incarceration.

    Competing Parents Harms no one more than their Children

    in Religion

    To say that the fighting between parents do not affect the children is to deny that there are bones within our bodies.  It does affect them and in a way that only those who grew up in a busted home where one or both of the parents were absent knows this.  But even with that knowledge, we still cannot help ourselves when that selfish moment hits and we fail to see the damage that we do to our own kids for the sake of getting back at the other.  I am as guilty of such an ignorant thing as anybody which is why I feel as though I am more than knowledgeable enough about this to scream and yell at others.


     


    The ultimate proof of how stupid we can be when it comes to trying to get revenge on the other parent is when we attempt to hurt the ones we love more than a total stranger ever could is in this article.  It is titled “Schiller Park woman accused of trying to murder her children with poisoned apple juice” written by Tom Negovan and Judy Wang.  In this article it reports that “Krystle El Khatib, 29, of Schiller Park, is charged with attempted murder for allegedly trying to murder her children with poisoned apple juice because she was angry with their father.  According to prosecutors, El Khatib crushed up benzodiazepine pills, an anti-anxiety drug, into some apple juice, and forced her 9-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter to drink two glasses each. She threatened to hit her son if he didn’t do so.  Then, they say she tried kill herself with a similar cocktail.  Authorities say the 9-year-old boy woke up the following day, vomiting, and was able to get in touch with his father.  At the hospital, a criminal complaint against El Khatib says she “told a social worker at the hospital that she brought her kids into this world and she can take them out.”

    Parents who kill their children..

    in Motivation

    A USA TODAY examination of more than three decades of FBI homicide data shows that on average, 450 children are killed every year by their parents. Northeastern University criminologists applied statistical models to the records. USA TODAY analyzed the database for a detailed look at who kills, who is killed and how. Several patterns are apparent:


    The vast majority of child victims – three out of four – are under 5. More than a third of all victims are under a year old.
    Nearly half of all victims died from physical beatings or other injuries at a parent's hands.
    Fathers are more likely to kill. Men killed six out 10 children, most often beating or shooting them. Fathers were at fault in 75% of cases when children were shot to death by a parent and in 64% of cases when a child was beaten. "Violence is a masculine pursuit," says Jack Levin, a Northeastern University criminologist.
    When mothers kill, they are far more likely to kill victims under the age of 1 than children of any other age. Nearly 40% of all children killed by their mothers were less than a year old.
    When a parent is accused of killing a child, it dominates headlines and social media.


    "People are fascinated by this," says Sara West, a forensic psychiatrist at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. "It's an unfathomable concept."

    [A quote from one of our dads on our website www.twlsnc24hr.com/partners/  1 of a kind… My child has been attending for a little over 6 months and his progression (socially, comprehensive, awareness) has been remarkable. Not only does Ms. Rhonda challenge the children, but parents as well (she wants us to be formidable, instead of forgettable). It’s remarkable and astonishing to see how well he has adjusted to her and her methods. I love that its more than just numbers and letters; yet it’s our future she invests in. She sees 20-40 years down the line, when these children will be teaching their children and look back and can say it started at the “Talk, Walk & Learn Center”. We talk often and the passion, consistency, kindness, sincerity, open-minded, and creative methods she uses and educates the children with are 1 of a kind. My son is truly in the right hands to help guide him to a more challenging and prosperous life. -Cordario

    Children's Corner: Parenting With a Story: Real-Life Lessons in Character for Parents and Children to Share with Paul Smith


    Tell a young person what to do - play fair, be yourself, stick to the task at hand - and most will tune you out. But show them how choices and consequences play out in the real world, with real people, and the impact will be far more profound. Parenting with a Story gathers 101 narratives from people around the world and from all walks of life, reflecting unexpected moments of clarity about who they are and how they should treat others.


    The lessons illuminate the power of character - integrity, curiosity, creativity, grit, kindness, patience, gratitude, and more - to prepare us for anything. Sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes funny, always compelling, these stories impart wisdom and help steer choices about: Resisting peer pressure; Remaining open-minded; Being humble; Making courageous decisions; Standing by their word; Bouncing back from failure; Showing compassion; and, Picking friends wisely. Stories help shape who we are and who we aspire to become. Share these, discuss them, and watch your child grow into the adult you'll be proud of.


    Paul Smith is a popular keynote speaker and corporate trainer in leadership and storytelling techniques, a former executive and 20-year veteran of The Procter & Gamble Company, and the author of two books: Lead with a Story: A Guide to Crafting Business Narratives That Captivate, Convince, and Inspire; and Parenting with a Story: Real-life Lessons in Character for Parents and Children to Share.

    Parents Perspective .......

    in Parents

    Parents here we are at the start of AAU basketball season.  Many of us have young athletes are involved in the Nike, Adidas, or Under Armor circuits.  Far too often although the certified event are required to give an NCAA requirement brief.  Many of our young men and ladies still walk away with no more of an understanding of the requirements.  Again I ask what is our role in this process of initial NCAA eligibility requirements. For the next few months sports will be our world so we must embrace this environment.
