Add Water and Stir 20: Good Samaritan or Nosey Neighbor?

Hey!!!! We made it to 20 episodes!!!  Woot, woot!

Thursday @9:30pm EDT!

Thursday @9:30pm EDT!

On tonight’s episode of Add Water and Stir, AdoptiveBlackMom and Complicated Melodi’s Mimi chat about families, usually mothers, who have been arrested or had CPS involved in their life because of leaving their children in the car to go pick up something.  It always involves someone who is a Good Samaritan not sure of what to do and errs on the side of caution by calling the authorities. While we certainly want children to be safe; we also wonder, when is it okay to intervene in someone else’s parenting choices? Also, why are some parenting decisions scrutinized and critiqued, while others are celebrated as “good parenting.” The ladies of Add Water will discuss parental decision making and autonomy tonight, with the usual side of pop culture during the Wine Down!

Catch Add Water and Stir live tonight on Google+ at 9:30pm EDT/8:30pm CST or later on our podcast site, YouTube, Itunes or Stitcher! Don’t forget to rate us (5 stars and thumbs ups, pretty please!)!

Add Water and Stir is a podcast focused on the promoting adoption within communities of color, especially within the African American community.
