Check out 12 tips from MadameNoire.com‘s that can help every parent.

    with all these babies killers out here, the article is a must read. But step 1 i dont need the article. My kids r healthy, happy n safe. Thank u God.@hannibal i agree with u.

  • Keep it Real

    #1 How about not getting pregnant and having a baby by someone who is not committed to you and doesn’t want to you to have their child. I didn’t look at the list but that probably eliminates about 80% of whatever is on it when you really think about it.

    This was a great post. I think many raise their children based on how their parent’s raised them. In addition, some people who had parent’s who did those negative things on that list made sure to not repeat their parent’s mistakes. Unfortunately, I see too many parent’s who curse in front and worst at their children, smoke around them and then some 😦 I’m sure this article will help those who sincerely want to be a better parent. I also think it is very crucial regarding those single DADS and MOMS who date MUST keep parent life, separate from love life. It amazes me how some men I’ve dated became real angry when I told them that I don’t bring or like to have men around my daughter, so, please keep it as just “us”, unle.ss the relationship (gets real serious)leads to an engagment.

    • MS. DOIN ME & NOT U

      I soooo concure with your comments.

      And also would like to add that just pushing one out, doesn’t make you a parent.

    • http://www.showmestate.com 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS (A SPADE IS A SPADE)

      OK.

  • Get Real

    I was telling a friend how smart his 4yr old is because she aleady understand the concept to connect 4 even though his 6yr old does not get it. His reply was “Well she may be street smart but not book smart cause she does not like books.” He has already given up on this 4yr old daughter. How the hell do u determine something like that at 4yrs old. She can’t read. It’s getting to the point that some of these black parents could care less if their children go to high school.
