TOOL OF THE DAY: Resources for co-parenting and Strengthening Families
CATEGORY: Family Law Resources
It costs $47,000.00 to incarcerate a parent for a year and $17,000.00 to educate them. Tayla Andre with Wake Up with Tayla has hit on a topic that has been ignored for far too long…
Children are losing when fathers are incarcerated or stripped of their driver’s licenses. The role that father’s play in a child’s life and how that is affected when the child is deprived of this. And when a father is incarcerated this is actually defeating the purpose it was meant to serve.
Tayla and guests from the Family Nurturing Center of Massachusetts in Boston shared on the show this morning on 101.3 Bit City FM regarding the cultural beliefs and attitudes surrounding fathering in black families when the father is no longer with the baby mama. These concepts transcend lines of color. They also discussed the perceived value that the father serves, the actual value of an involved father, as well as what beliefs and attitudes have perpetuated the continued idea that father’s are paychecks and not active nurturers and equal participants in their child’s life. And the damage that comes to children when a father is cut out of the child’s life.
Neither a fit mother nor a fit father should be cut out of a child’s life because the other parent doesn’t agree with them or like them anymore. And a parent should not be cut out of a child’s life because they failed to prove an allegation against the other parent.
Tune in tomorrow and listen to Sherry Palmer continue the discussion as she and Tayla delve into the topics around protective mothers, controlling women, when are these helpful and when are they harmful, and why and how are more mothers ending up in supervised visitation centers.
Please remember that we are a gender neutral organization who educate and share the issues. We are all bringing attention to beliefs and attitudes that are driving behaviors that are hurting our children.
