Breakthrough Radio co-host, Lisa Goodman joins Valante to discuss parenting solutions. Lisa is a state licensed child care professional with over 20 years experience and a mother of two. The objective of this show is to clarify discipline and abuse guidelines and offer helplful parenting tips.
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.
The NFL appears to have a huge problem with players committing acts of domestic abuse. In recent weeks three NFL players found themselves at the center of controversy for abusing women in their lives. The most notable is Ray Rice, who was seen on video knocking his wife unconscious on an elevator. On the heels of this story is an account of Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals accused of head butting his wife and breaking her nose after she refused his sexual advances. Then there is Greg Hardy, “The Kraken”, of the Carolina Panthers. In July, Greg Hardy was found guilty of assaulting his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her.
These were the most notable abusive acts by NFL players against women recently. There is another NFL player that has made the news for an abusive act. However, in this case it wasn’t against a woman.
Adrian Peterson, of the Minnesota Vikings, is accused of going too far in disciplining his four year old son. It is said that Peterson used a “switch” in disciplining his son and left bruises on the child.
ESPN writer Kate Fagan weighed in during an interview and called on the NFL to invest millions of dollars to address the issue of domestic violence and abuse. She even conveyed that we need to reprogram how we raise men.
What are your thoughts on domestic violence? Do you think it’s gotten worse over the years? What can be done to resolve this social ill? Does the Holy Bible offer a solution?

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?

Research has shown that 140 million women and girls worldwide have been affected by Female genital mutilation (FGM) and of these, 66,000 were in the UK. It is estimated that up to 98,000 girls in the UK are at risk of being cut.
The World Health Organisation called for the elimination of FGM 30 years ago and the practice was made illegal in the UK in 1985 (with an update in 2003 that made it an offence to arrange to have it performed outside the UK on British Citizens), however there has not been one conviction.
Professor Hazel Barrett of Coventry University believes that this community-based approach is the best way to tackle the issue of FGM worldwide. Despite being a human rights abuse, the practice goes largely unreported amongst the diasporic communities in which it is practiced. Her unique approach to this issue includes working with practising communities to understand the barriers to preventing FGM and using the results of their research to try to change behaviours within communities.

About the Tour.
SISFI is hosting our Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour on Sept. 17th - Oct 3rd across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs and resources to address the increasing numbers of people facing serious life and emotional challenges, and human suffering with suicide ideations/thoughts, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide.
The theme of the tour is “Look into my heart and mind, tell me what you see”. It highlights the realities of not knowing what’s in a person’s mind or on their heart by what we see on the outside, and that we must engage in dialog and allow an open and comfortable atmosphere for people to open up and express themselves.
We have aligned 15 community workshops, 3 luncheons and 15 radio shows to bring people, mental health professionals, energy therapists, health professionals, survivors and healers together to address this very serious and important topic affecting many people in our communities. While the community workshops are local in the 3 cities, the radio shows will have guests from across the country who lost loved ones, and practitioners who specializes in the support, treatment, recovery and healing of mental health, life coaching, emotional wellness and human suffering.

I don't know how people are making the comparison between Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson as if they are the same. Nobody with some good damn sense will think that a person who abuses a child should get a pass. There is a difference between child abuse and whooping that ass. An ass whooping has never hurt a child in the long run and I will happily defend a parent's right to do so. We will be discussing this topic plus more incompentence in Washington DC
