    Child Rearing--Discipline or Abuse?

    in Politics

    Adrian Peterson now has more attention for beating his children than knocking grown men out on the football field.


    He left marks on a four year old, which seems excessive to many of us. Franky, it assaults our sensibilities.


    But the public debate is larger than whethere Peterson abused his child or not. The debate is actually over whether corporal punishment is necessary or effective.


    We've come a long way from public floggings, but  some thing that we've not come so far that we still don't need to pass out an ass whipping every now and again.


    Some say a return to corporal punishment will provide some perspective for out of control children. Otherwise, let's get rid of the schools we complain about and leave the children at home. For every discussion about what the school
    system needs to do, there needs to be a discussion about what parents need to do. And instead of simply looking to add more duties to an already overtaxed and nearly failing school system, we should place more of the focus on parental training.


    After all, you have to learn how to drive a car, but no one is trained on being a parent.


    There are a number of things that are wrong with the way we are leaving the world to the next generation, but the overarching problem with today’s youth is that some of them really do need hands placed on them.


    Some kids may turn out fine with the permissiveness and timeout behavior modification methods, but others need their natural asses kicked.


    Today's discussion on "The Bridge" will focus on discipline of children and examining the line between discipline and abuse. Co-hosts, Tracy Powell, Dr. John Hamilton, Marcus D. LeGall, III and DJ Gates weigh in.

    in Family

    Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.


    While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow.  It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.


    Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.


    A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1290

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Debby Washington Goodwin from Springdale, Arkansas, who'll be joined by her hubby, Mike T. (they are also perhaps better known as The Outlaw and The Lady). Debby is a mother who had to work through the rage, shame and guilt of discovering her only child's sexual abuse at the hands of her ex-husband. "A mother's worse nightmare!" she says. Mike tells me he's a survivor of childhood abuse that took its many forms by both his mother and his dad. The Outlaw and The Lady met in a Behavioral Hospital as patients. Upon discharge they dated, and married and have been given their strength and courage through sharing with others their life experiences while encouraging others to share theirs. Their mission dream is to give those that feel they have no hope with no voice through 'Keys To AWARENESS - Passionate About Compassion' on Facebook. Debby says, "We know first hand how the experiences of sexual, physical, and mental childhood abuse and how it can consume one throughout his/her entire life. We also know some do not physically survive it and for those we want to find and be their voice." Besides sharing on social media, they go out on the road to meet with clients, either as individuals or in seminars. Since their cause is centered on their own life experiences (child sexual child abuse and child abuse period), there's a lot they share only at their seminars. People privately will feel comfortable to share once they hear what The Outlaw and The Lady have been through. As Debby points out, "We're busy .. but that is a good kind of busy."
