    THE SINGLE MOM'S NETWORK... WITH AIXA AND DEBORAH

    in Spirituality

    Being a single mother is never easy. Raising a family alone requires that you perform the roles of two people, the father and the mother. You will not have the luxury of sharing many of the jobs that two parents have, but nevertheless, you will need to address the concerns of these jobs: provider, disciplinarian, comforter, guidance counselor and so forth. It is important to realize, however, that being a single mother does not mean that you need to be alone.  In order to be successful, you will need to learn how to make decisions and act on them (e.g. how to use community resources, parental and family support, get financial aid, get respite time etc.) so that the needs and interests of your children are met. You can be ready to meet the many challenges of a single mother by knowing how to handle such challenges in advance. Join in as Aixa and Deborah share their day-to-day challenges of parenting and meeting their needs as women.

That is, until her love interest Terry Crews comes along and forces her to love herself and allow herself to be loved by others.

    Single Mothers Rule The World

    in Entertainment

    Once largely limited to poor women and minorities, single motherhood is now becoming the new “norm”.


    This prevalence is due in part to the growing trend of children born outside marriage — a societal trend that was virtually unheard of decades ago.


    About 4 out 10 children were born to unwed mothers. Nearly two-thirds are born to mothers under the age of 30.


    Of all single-parent families in the U.S., single mothers make up the majority. We will go over this plus a big announcement  give a way from Avenue 4311 Store for singles mothers

    Young, Single & Celibate in the City

    in Women

    It's natural to desire to be in a relationship. And if you beliee in "happily ever after" then that's what you desire. And yet a lot of women, particularly black women, aren't coupled up. But why? Is the so-called shortage of good black men real or a myth? Have many black women given up on finding a good brother? Would they rather be single than date and marry interracially? And is this a viable option for black women? Can a woman be single, celibate and happy?


    "Some black women choose to be single rather than settle, but rarely is this discussed as a real explanation for why some black women are unmarried," writes Angela Stanley, a researcher at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University. (Black, Female & Single, NYTimes.com, 12/10/11) 


    We'll hear Dionne Renae's story as to why she is, at 34, Young, Single & Celibate in the City. That's Thursday, April 30, 6:30pm ET on She Struts Radio. Tune in.

    A Look Into Baltimore Unfolded

    in Spirituality

    Like at Facebook.com/TTEIB 


    The events that have unfolded in Baltimore helps us to look at our behaviors, mentalities, levels of accountability, double standards, strengths and weaknesses as a whole society and  individual race.


    We'll be discussing Marilyn Mosby, her husband, Nick Mosby, professional protestors, Toya Graham, the youth presence vs the adult presence and what this possibly implies...


    We question where our impact as adults have fallen onto the teenagers. Have we given them more secular hip hop culture & mentality or have we passed down wisdom for tomorrow? Have we shown them how to impact their neighborhood wisely? Or how to be the next narcissist who will step on whoever to get their point across and how to look "like a boss". How important a role has the lack of education and infrastructure played in urban areas? What are some positive events/protests that have unfolded in Baltimore and what do you believe led up to the commotion? IS Toya Graham (the mother who slapped her son), a symbol of the desperation within the black community? She has multiple children supposedly by different dads and is doing her best. But is the best from the single mother still losing?


    Lets talk..

  • The Baltimore Mom Who Hit Her Son: Was this LOVE or Abuse?

    in Parents

    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...


    Tune in, this coversation will be intriguing.
