Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live discusses Black Males and Dyslexia with his guest Shawn Anthony Robinson.
BIO: Shawn Anthony Robinson, M.Ed, is a doctoral candidate at Cardinal Stritch University (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) in the Literacy and Language program. His concentration is on giftedness and dyslexia. Robinson brings a wealth of academic experience, training and knowledge about the psychological development of dyslexia, especially among Black males who have not tapped into their gifts because of their misdiagnosis and inability to read or spell. He is an emerging national speaker, and one of few scholars in the United States with a research focus on the scholarship, theory and literature addressing theoretical or psychological frameworks investigating twice-exceptional Black males who have dyslexia.
Practitioners working with gifted Black males with dyslexia must understand how these students navigate educational systems, understand their unique learning styles, and how they construct knowledge through different sociocultural experiences, which are associated with their self-perception, self-esteem and sense of identity.

Dr. Mike Robinson, host of Parent Talk Live talks with Tamara Wallace Norman, a cancer survivor about how her faith and resiliency supported her desire to be involved in the academic life of her son.
Tamara Wallace Norman, native of Dayton, Ohio, is a wife, mother, and avid roller skater. Tamara is also a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in December 2011. At that time her son, Zion, was 6 years old and in first grade. He was also in his 2nd year of attending an immersion language academy where we was studying Mandarin. During Tamara’s cancer journey, she took a break from her 20-year career as a flight attendant in order to focus on treatment and supporting her son’s education. Her approach to dealing with life has always been to incorporate with her faith two attributes: resiliency and steadfastness. She has seen the effects of this positive approach to life play out in her ability to remain cancer-free for three years and in her role as a mother, helping her son to excel in his studies. Whether flying, gliding across the hardwood or writing about her passion for roller skating (you can find her at www.lacesandwheels.com), Tamara’s zest for life is most apparent. She currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband, Jaron, and her son, Zion.

It is some thing we hear about often. And it is usually considered to be a beneficial concept. Many, if not most, of us value and possibly use it as a criteria for picking their respective mates. But is this an overblown philosophy or way of thinking? Is the merit to this notion of children raised with both of their parents, and or even in healthy two parent homes, are make for more healthy mates in adult relationships?
Do people raised in single parent homes have unrealistic expectations of how their mate(s) and relationships are suppose to be? Do they have a lack of patience when their respective expectations are not lived up to? Are you able to tell if a person (specifically a woman) was raised without their father immediately? Does the lack of seeing both parents living together create serious incompatibility issues in those of us who did not have the luxury?
Share your stories and examples with us and the world Friday night at Midnight till 2AM!
