Toya Graham became the world's most loved and hated mom
Toya Graham definitely has quite a few people singing her praises while others are begging to differ. It all started when a video surfaced of her giving her 16 year old son a frantic beat down for participating in the Baltimore riots.  She was crowned a hero by those who felt that she was doing...

Parents really do love children they didn't want

The custody issue between Ludacris and Tamika Fuller continues to spark a dialogue on whether or not children should be taken away from their mothers and given to rich fathers. Many people feel that in this case custody was only requested out of spite and to prevent paying child support, which I’m not planning to... Read more »

Maybe we shouldn't mind our own business so much #ChildAbusePreventionMonth

Maybe we shouldn't mind our own business so much #ChildAbusePreventionMonth
This day in age many us have the “mind your business and I’ll mind mine” mentality about pretty much everything. In many cases that is perfectly fine, but not when it comes to the well-being of children. I cringe every time I watch the news or scroll through my news feed and see stories about... Read more »

Now the current issue at hand is the $300 million shortfall of subsidized day care funding that could leave more than 36,000 families without child care options. I’ve... Read more »

Nationwide's #MakeSafeHappen in the right place, at the wrong time
When I saw the Nationwide commercial while enjoying nachos and beer, I didn’t take offense to it. I actually thought it was a message that needed to be conveyed, and why not by an insurance provider?

Nicki Minaj's butt is none of my daughters business
When I saw the cover art for Nicki’s single Anaconda, I honestly thought nothing of it. She’s Nicki Minaj and that’s basically what she’s been known for throughout her career. I don’t knock her for it, or judge her because that’s not my place. I actually like some of her music and listen to it... Read more »
