Studies from several sociologists at the University of Texas and at Duke University indicate that parental involvement with homework can have a negative effect on child’s academic achievement. The study went on to suggest that parent help can backfire when it involves providing instruction on homework content.


What’s your take? Should parents help their children with homework? Or do they end up doing more harm than good?

The 'SIP" with Coffee Black

Have You Had Your "SIP" For The Week?

What's Your Take?

Criticism of one of television’s most beloved stars, Bill Cosby, is escalating with renewed attention to allegations that he sexually assaulted women in several incidents decades ago. American’s favorite TV dad Cliff Huxtable and Jell-o spokesman seems to now have a less appealing side not be suitable for primetime.  The 77 year old icon has been accused by several women over the years of rape allegations and he has never been prosecuted. Cosby has repeatedly denied the accusations, in fact he took to social media and apparently it backfired and drew more attention and questions to an issue that is long overdue. 
 

What’s your take?  Why do you think these rape allegations persist after so many years? Should Bill Cosby address the allegations publicly?

Identity Crisis?

White Americans are fine with African-Americans. Blacks, however, are a different story a according to an Emory University study  that argues “the racial label ‘black’ evokes a mental representation of a person with lower socioeconomic status than the racial label ‘African-American.’” The results suggest “the label black elicits more negative emotions than the label African-American,” the researchers write, “but African-American does not elicit positive emotion.” So now it seems that we are judged not only by ethnicity and hue but also how we identify ourselves?

What’s you take? Does the label “Black” evoke   a more negative connotation than “African American”?
