    Gender & Sex are NOT interchangeable!

    Gender & Sex are NOT interchangeable!

    In this episode, we will speak with the mother of a transgender youth sharing some of her experiences. Her advice through any difficult parenting moment is to simply "Lean back and listen - stop getting in the way." Oftentimes, as parents, we take on the struggles of our children as our own - naturally so; however, in many cases, we make a bigger deal out of a situation than our own children do.

    Erin's son Cal was assigned female at birth. Erin gave Cal a female name as her first gift to her, and, as she so eloquently shared, the name simply wasn't the 'right size'. Cal's given name is no longer what he goes by, but Erin continues to love him and support him through his journey - albeit difficult, at times. The impact of society has definitely taken a toll on transgender rights and we hope that this podcast shines light on positivity and how we, as a society, can support everyone.

    Remember that we all have a story to tell!

    Raising Other Peoples Kids

    Raising Other Peoples Kids

    Blended families aren't new, but they are definitely garnishing more attention. From fairy tales to current days, step-parenting is seen as 'evil', but shouldn't those who step in to raise another person's child be given the opportunity to show they aren't evil? Blended families exist within immediate parenting structures while grandparents and extended family are also supporting families. In this episode, we will discuss how multi-generational families, adoption, and blended families make up today's family structures. We will discuss these topics with our co-hosts, who each have their own perspective on the matter (as children of blended families and parenting within a multi-generational environment).

    Remember that we all have a story to tell!

    High Speed Chase, Drug Deal Gone Bad: Cop Got Shot - Don't Know Which Thug Pulled the Trigger

    Incarceration has a negative influence on families, but what happens when incarceration actually sparks positive life changes? In this episode, we have the opportunity to speak with Garry "I CAN" Sparkman, father of four who served nearly five years in prison. Since being released in 2008, Garry has founded the I CAN (Cultivate a Nation) Movement against negativity.

    Starting a life of drugs at the age of 13, he moved from marijuana to crack cocaine and ultimately was imprisoned for a drug deal gone bad - being falsely accused of shooting an officer. Two of his four children have Cerebral Palsy and those struggles, on top of serving time, moved him toward his faith where he learned to overcome negativity.

    Living through Tupac's lyrics of being the "spark that changes the nation", he has motivated many to overcome negativity and their own struggles. Listen as he shares his story and recognizes that "other people's perceptions don't have to be our reality".
