SORT BY Relevancy
On The Edge Show will be airing Listeners' Choice segments for the next week. Season Three returns live to the mic on April 8, 2015. Tonight's episode comes straight from our Parenting Chronicles and touches on the debate over whether or not parents should spank their children. Listen in tonight @10:30 pm bycalling 347-327_9967.
Today is a rebroadcast of last week's show - it features the conversation revisited about SPANKING after the POPE said it was OK to spank your children, with an understanding. Spanking will probably be controversial from now until a long time, because there are people that are totally against it, and there are a number of sorts that don't mind breaking skin, to help prevent their children from BREAKING THE LAW. (That's wasn't fair was it?)
And we'll talk about BOBBI KRISTINA and her situation, questions of a guy named Lomax, who is friends with Nick Gordon ( I think I have that right ) and Whitney Houston's and Bobby Brown's daughter is on life support. Interesting conversation/confrontation with Greg Whitaker and Jay King on another subject, if you missed this show, you missed a good one, Capice? We've all got our bells on.... well - not me.
Tonight on "It's Real Talk Radio" we'll be discussing the infamous "spanking." The world of parenting seems to be split on parents who choose to discipline their children, and parents who choose not to discipline their children, and throughout history we've seen positive and negative results from both sides of the fence. The question we're asking is "Do you agree or disagree with parents who spank their kids?" Rest assured we're gonna do what we always do and keep it real on our views and perspectives. Make sure you don't miss out because it's gonna be an entertaining show that will have you going to work debating with friends and coworkers.

Lenon Honor asks the controversial question "Is spanking a child a form of child abuse?"
My name is Lenon Honor and I grew up experiencing various levels of child abuse. Now that I am a father of 5 children I have made the decision not to inflict any level of physical pain onto my children. My wife and I have learned that parents can discipline a child without causing physical pain. Our oldest child is 10 and our youngest child is 3 and we have not observed any negative behavioral issues that would suggest that our child rearing approach is in error.
Recently there have been several stories in the news concerning domestic violence. There has also been a high profile child abuse case involving NFL player Adrian Peterson. This child abuse case has sparked national debate concerning whether or not corporal punishment or spanking a child is an appropriate means of disciplining a child.
Do you believe that children must be spanked in order to be properly disciplined?
Do you believe that spanking a child is a form of child abuse?
Do you think that there should be limitations on the levels of physical pain that a parent can inflict upon a child?

Today, we will attempt to discuss several issues, current. 347-205-9366 our number, and the number to all the shows on the JKN. It's February 7th 2015 - Did it appear that January shot right by us? It didn't go any faster than any other January, but when you are looking back, time seems shorter, however, if you're in class and you're waiting for 3:00, or 3:30 or whenever you are waiting to get out of school, seems like it takes a lifetime when it's only a half hour, it's all perception.
The POPE says we can spank. And I don't mean the dance that was out in the 70s, but SPANK YOUR CHILDREN with some directions. Bill Cosby refuses to stay out of the headlines, and Bobbi Kristina - the daugher of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown....
Have you heard of the COOL CRITICS? We cover the spectrum and universe of conversation. Recently, the discipline, (SPANKING) given to his son, by Adrian Peterson, has brought attention to people spanking their kids. A lot of the older populus, has been spanked, from bush limbs, to tree branches, brushes, belts, hands, iron cords, (not chords, I don't think there is any harmony from an iron CHORD/CORD) The attention that the NFL has placed on this starting with the Ray Rice syndrome, has everyone chiming in - why should THE COOL CRITICS be any different???? 347-205-9366 - voice your opinion!!!
"Spare the rod, spoil the child" is the Biblical quote commonly used to justify the use of corporal punishment. But the author of "Beating Black Kids", sister Asadah Kirkland, explains some things that may help parents re-think that old time philosophy. What are we really teaching our children when we hit them? What are we saying about ourselves? What behavior will we see them manifest later on in life as a result of being hit as a child as a behavior control technique? And what happens when parents disagree about the use of corporal punishment? Is the one who hits seen as the "bad guy?" Is the one who doesn't hit seen as "weak?" When does "spanking" become "child abuse?" Who decides when punishment is too harsh? How should parents discuss this issue and what should they base their decisions on? Is disagreement about spanking or hitting children a deal breaker for couples who are considering marriage? Should it be?
So is S & M the new missionary position? With ity shades of Gray comfortably ensconced as mainstream do we think of handcuffs and riding crops with a nudge, nudge, wink, wink attitude? If a husand slaps a wife is it sexy or abusive? And when some religious folks say they have a spouse's permission to spank them in order to carry out God's direction for head of households, do we look at the hitting differently? In other words, when is it abuse, when is it fun, and how do we tell the difference? Or do we need to?
Two guests will join the show this week to "school" us in the fine art of telling the difference between hurting, loving, giving permission for pain, and how to tell whether we are all being hoodwinked into thinking we are stodgy and unsophisticated if we don’t associate pain with love.

Kristen and Crystal talk about how the majority or the US spanks yet think kids 'need' more hitting. We address the facts about the lack of success spanking has and what to do instead. Spanking is Hitting and children deserve respect!
Today the man who crafted the legislation to have California school beatings banned, which occurred in 1986, turns 80 and that man is Mr. Jordan Riak. We honor Jordan today for the many hours that he has devoted in his lifetime to having adults gain awareness of the negative impact and social-lls which result from striking a developing human being for gaining their obedience, as described throughout a 16-page booklet entitled "Plain Talk About Spanking," of which Jordan is author. Jordan's lovely wife, Anne Riak, will take a moment to express what it has been like to be married to this more than thirty-year child activist.
Find out how to receive a free copy of this booklet at the end of the show.

Parenting today is an outright war zone. You battle your teens' metamorphosis, the dangers they face in the world, and nowadays, vigilant government inteference. Since parenting doesn't come with an instruction manual, we must concoct a protections strategy to keep our children safe from harm and straying down the right path. There's a debate as to whether spanking is right or wrong. "Experts" deem it abuse, many parents disagree. What are your thoughts?
