Pod-casting with my PNC (Partners In Culture)

A week before the Yuletide bustle, Umoja agreed to do a Pod-cast of mixes setting it off on the day of Umoja 12/26 and have each of the seven members represent a principle of Kwanzaa. Whadyou got Nia= Purpose, Kujilaclijah - (I forgot. Oh yea ...) = Self Determination, Kuumba = Creativity, Ujamma=Cooperative Economics, Imani = Faith, Ujima = Creative Work & Responsibility, and of course, Umoja = Unity.
I was real excitd about this because being that I am not on the west coast anymore, I miss playing with my friends. Thanks to technology, we are able to do like a Star Trek transporter and be at the same place at the same time electronically.
The first cat out the gate was Stevie G who is one of the newest members
he out in Bali right now peacing. His mix was crazy as well as the artwork he chose to post with it. Daz got busy next with the style of soul in which he do well. Then Jun got bananas with it. Tomas tore it down then I did mine that was murder if I don't say so myself. Wait did a wait pon D and B and I don't mean Drum and Bass I mean Culture D and BeLove. All now Be Love hasn't surfaced, but Culch got his in. still waiting on you C. Step up front!

My son is no joke. He driving Mama crazy, but I tell her nuh fi a fret because him is bwoy and ah so bwoy stay from time to time. He be doing ish like talking back, throwing trucks atchu, making incessant demands as if to say this is his house and we live here. Like freestyle fellowship we will not tollerate beatings on blacks gonna get my gat. My belt that is if he is ever outta place or disrespectful. His personality is becoming more and more defined. He's a raggamuffin like him faddah.
As parents the challenge we're faced with is raising unbiasley. Can't let none of our pickney slide into slackness. So if he speaks harshly to one of us. We check him and remind to whom which they speak, but we don't blast back because where's the lesson in that. I can't front I blast all the time so pray for me as I grow to the father I am to be.

The order of discipline should be:
  1. Tell them directly what behavior is unacceptable and informed of consequence whatever that may be if performance is repeated.
  2. Administer discipline at the point they decide to do opposite of previous instructions.
  3. Sentencing by age (5 minute time out for 5 year old, 7 licks for the 2nd grader, etc.)
We have a big responsibility to raise the next Nobel Peace Prize winner or the guy who wants to run you out the fast lane on the freeway.
