Pew Research Center released a study in 2013 that says about 39% of U. S. adults–up from 30% in 2010–care for an adult or child with significant health issues.
In other words, two in every five individuals are family caregivers.
I’ve been thinking about this number because I can’t quite get it to add up.
Here’s why. If 39% of U.S. adults are family caregivers, why is caregiving still such a lonely and isolating experience? Why, every year in our annual family caregiver survey, do you talk about the loneliness of the experience? Why haven’t more programs and services been added in your community to help you? Why do you still worry about telling your boss about your caregiving responsibilities? Why doesn’t the doctor’s office share a list of caregiving resources to help you? Why doesn’t a home health agency refer you to a website, like ours, so you can connect with others in a similar situation? Why can’t you find a family restroom to assist your caree?
Why is caregiving still an experience that feels like it’s just you rather than one that feels like it’s you plus (and within) a community that supports?
Bruce and I will share our thoughts about why we think caregiving is still such a lonely experience.

Today I’m joined by Suzette Brown, author of “Alzheimers: Through my Mother’s Eyes”. We’re going to be talking about some of the major points from the book, which offers ideas, suggestions and plans of action for caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s.
Her book is real, raw and truly reflects her day-to-day instances of her experiences - good and bad, up and down. She offers caregivers many insights, and examples, including her own viewpoints of what she "should" or "could" have done differently. The emotional and physical endeavors are challenging indeed - in addition to the stress, rage and frustration that are all part of the daily life of a caregiver. Join us to hear more.

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

Slapping your child should not earn a mother of the year award but a Mother’s day card perhaps……
What is the reason for celebrating the Baltimore mother who is seen publicly disciplining her 16 year old son is has this type of parental behavior become a thing of the past?
Do you know of any mothers who would have responded in the same manner as Toya Graham?
With such positive reaction by many media outlets as to the appropriateness of this mother's reaction what message are we sending to parents about methods of discipline?
SHE was hailed as the “mother of the year” after being filmed slapping her son and dragging him home from the Baltimore riots, but now Toya Graham has become embroiled in a particularly American row about race.
The single mother became a sensation after a local news channel captured her confronting her son Michael, 16, as violence flared on Monday. After spotting the teenager wearing a hoodie and mask amid rock-throwing protesters, Graham, 42, ran over to challenge him. “Are you for real?” she screamed at him. ” Really? This is what you want to do?
The Baltimore mother's reaction was understandable and maybe even reasonable given the highly charged circumstances. She told CBS News that her intention was to protect her son. It seems that she did what she thought she had to do to remove her son from a very dangerous riot. But in the process, she slapped, hit, cursed and shouted at him to "Get the f--- over here" and "take that mother f-----g mask off!"
Now, she is under fire for hitting and cursing at her son. Was this a form of LOVE or abuse?
What to YOU think? We want to hear from YOU...
