    The Black Issue with Dad. Urban Therapy with Sun #168

    in Lifestyle

    The issue of the Black father has been going on for generations and unfortunately in a negative way.


    Whether we are talking about the absentee father, the deadbeat dad, the abusive father, the man that never really came around, the man that had all those kids, the man that wouldn't marry my mom, the man that we never met or the one that we can't seem to get it together with, the Black father is a polarizing figure. He commands a lot of attention for a man that so many people say hardly exists in our lives.


    The issues with fathers is not exclusive to Black people. Other races and ethnic groups have had similar issues with fathers but their issues seem to have dealt more with abusive or neglectful fathers inside the home. Many Black people have the opposite experience.


    This is not a general show concerning fathers though. This show will focus on personal issues that people have had in the Black family with their fathers. 


    What has been your experience concerning your dad? Was he there? Was he absent? Have you been mad at him most of your life or have you been looking for him most of your life?


    Has someone else that is not been your biological dad been your dad all your life? How did that turn out?


    Have you been taught to feel like a father is not as important in your life as a mother is?


    What about people who have sons? Do we secretly fear that our sons won't be there for their children if they grew up without a dad? Do we try to prevent that from happening or do we let the chips fall where they may?


    What can be done to remedy the situation of the Black father in relation to the child, the family and the community?

    How It's Going So Far? Resolutions Revisited. Urban Therapy with Sun #167

    in Lifestyle

    It takes stamina and endurance and determination to devise a plan and stick to it. The beginning of the year is when the men get separated from boys in this regard. By now, people are either wondering if they should've started what they started or if they need to change direction.


    How's that workout plan going? What about that diet?


    Have you ran back to that lover that you kicked to the curb?


    Are you still not speaking to those toxic friends that you cut off?


    Have you started adding back those friends that you deleted off of social media?


    Have you started back cursing and swearing yet?


    When was the last time you smoked a cigarette?


    How much money have you saved so far?


    Still sticking to that celibacy plan?


    Yeah, it's only been less than a month but it seems like a lifetime when you feel like you've made the wrong decision or when you bitten off more than you can chew. People go overboard with New year's plans all the time. They get fed up and and make rash decisions. How about you? Are you sticking to the gameplan?


    Let's see if we can help each other out. Let's support each other. Let's see if we can get each other back on the right track and follow through until at least the spring. LOL

    Staring At The Sun!

    in Lifestyle

    What do you do to improve your life?  Do you know some people stare at the sun to gain advantages in life?  Do you know many of our religions were formed because of the sun and its value to our lives?  Do you really care about sun worshipping or do you mostly care about how your life can be better?  
    Do you have anything or anyone you follow with a belief that your life is better because you have that belief?  Why do we worship anyone or anything?  What would life look like if we each accepted that a creator exists, that we are creators, and we let each of us grow up as value creators?  How would that belief, religion, fit your life style?  

    When you were little did you dream of growing up and being more than you were accepted as as the child within the family, the society, the religion you were part of?  Did you dream of being as powerful as the sun that shone in your eyes?  Did you dream of escaping this planet to a place you were accepted?  Well, stare at the sun! (a metaphor for being more)

    The Challenges Of Moving Up and Improving. Urban Therapy with Sun #162

    in Lifestyle

    It's always great to start making a little more money to be able to have the things that you always wanted to be able to buy and live the life that you've always wanted to live. Just like any changes that happen in life there are gonna be challenges that need to be met. Even though they may seem like small things to some people, everyone has their own way of seeing things and we all grew up experiencing things from our own perspective so some things are easier for others than they are for individuals.


    In short, here are some of the things that we will address on this week's show. See if you can relate.


    Working a steady job after being on welfare for a long time.


    Moving into a regular rental apartment or house after living in the projects for a long time.


    Moving from an apartment to owning your own home for the 1st time.


    Taking a managerial position after working for years as an hourly employee.


    Getting into a healthy relationship after being in an abusive relationship for so long.


    Living a healthy lifestyle after abusing yourself for years  with drugs, alcohol or other type of addiction.


    We can cover any other type of positive change that takes getting used to as well. Call 347-677-1533 to tell your story or one that you know of.

    Dave King joins me, Jim Coughenour, again this week as we share our thoughts on the Suns first five preseason games.


    We go over the players that sparkled and those who fizzled, how the new puzzle pieces fit and what the rotation might look like to start the season.


    Did we learn anything about the Suns in the preseason?


    We also take a look at what lies ahead in the next few weeks, including the season's tip off, Steve Nash's Ring of Honor induction, the Markieff/Marcus reunion and Bright Side Night.
