    Does Pop Culture Glorify Single Parent Households?

    in Parents

    Tonight on "It's Real Talk Radio" we'll be discussing single parent households and the role pop culture plays in them. Some argue that pop culture is the # 1 endorser for single parent families. A lot of the music and television shows in pop culture seem to highlight the single parent movement. On one hand, it's good to see parents not make excuses, step up to the plate and do what they have to do to provide and give their children the best lives possible. On the other hand, glorifying single parents could help sway young adults to procreate without having unconditional love amongst each other and a set game plan on how the children will be provided for if things don't work out. To make matters even worse, some procreate with no intention in being a full family.
    Young adults and teens can be easily influenced from what they hear on the radio, what they see on TV and what they observe on social media. These are the 3 main sources for Pop Culture. So where do you stand? Do you think Pop Culture has influenced young adults and teens to not think out the consequences and hardships of single parenting? Should the blame go more towards the upbringing of these young adults and teens, or does Pop Culture deserve any blame at all?
    Being a single parent can add a lot of stress to a parent. We've seen some parents go as far as putting their kids up for adoption, dropping them off to family then disappearing, or even leaving them on a random person's doorstep, never to be heard from again. This is an ongoing problem that our society faces every day!
    We'll also be discussing the term 'Single Parent' and if we should use a more specific term to define a parent's role in their child's life. There's a lot to talk about tonight. One thing's for sure and 2 things for certain. It doesn't get any realer than this!

    Cut it Out! The Epidemic of Cesarian Sections

    in Parents

    Join me for a rich bold jazzy converstion with Theresa Morris, author of Cut It Out: the C-Section Epidemic in America.  Professor Morris' primary areas of specialization are Organizational Theory, Sociology of Reproduction and Birth, Political Sociology, and Sex and Gender. 
    Theresa challenges most existing explanations of the unprecedented rise in c-section rates, which locate the cause of this trend in physicians practicing defensive medicine, women choosing c-sections for scheduling reasons, or women’s poor health and older ages. Morris’s explanation of the c-section epidemic is more complicated, taking into account the power and structure of legal, political, medical, and professional organizations; gendered ideas that devalue women; hospital organizational structures and protocols; and professional standards in the medical and insurance communities. She argues that there is a new culture within medicine that avoids risk or unpredictable outcomes and instead embraces planning and conservative choices, all in an effort to have perfect births. Based on 130 in-depth interviews with women who had just given birth, obstetricians, midwives, and labor and delivery nurses, as well as a careful examination of local and national level c-section rates, Cut It Out provides a comprehensive, riveting look at a little-known epidemic that greatly affects the lives, health, and families of each and every woman in America.
