What About Our Children?

Children in School Yard by Vlado

Now that you have been delivered, set free from drugs, sexual addiction, murder, lying, cheating, stealing, gossiping, backbiting, racism, white and blue collar crimes, etc and you have given your testimony of how God has saved you from the snare of the enemy and has been good to you, “What About Our Children?”

You have learned how to wage and fight the invisible warfare that the enemy planned against you and have come out victorious.  What are you going to do with your testimony of VICTORY?  Again I ask “What About Our Children?”

Our children are fighting the invisible fight everyday against an invisible enemy they are not equipped or experienced to fight.  The enemy continues to come at them with tactics of illiteracy, high school drop outs, teen pregnancy, bullying, gangs, teen violence, guns, racism,  promiscuity, AIDS, orphan hood, and children of divorced parents, sibling rivalry, broken parent and child relationships, fatherless and motherless children and more.  But YOU know how to fight and win.  YOU have proven it!

Join ASWIFTT RADIO Host Brenda Johnson Padgitt and her Co-Hosts Eunice Bridges and Glenda Fields online at www.blogtalkradio.com/aswifttradio on April 20, 2013 at 1 p.m. CST as they discuss relevant issues that children deal with in today’s society.   ASWIFTT RADIO also welcomes Guest Host Michael Guinn of M G Entertainment.  He is a social worker who has raised awareness in the community about child abuse issues and more.  He is the founder of S.L.A.M. (Spoken Language Arts Methods) and is known in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and abroad for hosting Poetry Events.

ASWIFTT RADIO Hosts will discuss issues of child abuse, both physical and mental, education in the home and school, bullying, gangs, teen violence, foster homes for children, orphans, teen pregnancy, children of divorced parents, parent and child relationships, sibling rivalry and more.  We will also direct parents and others who care for kids to resources and organizations that can help them.  The discussion is to encourage listeners to get involved and become strong advocates for children because it takes a village to raise a child.

ASWIFTT RADIO Co-Hosts will also reference and discuss their latest books as additional resources for parents and kids.  A Day Like Mine and A Child’s Laughter by Eunice Bridges, How Did I Get Into This Mess? and My Baby Sister by Brenda Johnson Padgitt and Glenda Field’s book, Diary of a Man and Heart of a Woman.

Teens are at a cross road between being a child and adulthood. Some teens are trying to identify who they are and what they want to do with their lives. Teens face peer pressure in many areas. Some teens feel that parents don’t understand their problems. This show will examine the perspectives of teens and parents. This show will also bridge both perspectives with the help of professionals who work with teenagers.  Parents please send in questions or topics you would like addressed on this upcoming show?
