The Myth of the Broken Home: A Guidebook for Single Parents

April Gabrielle

Show Description:
April Gabrielle, a counselor/mediator and single mom, shares her personal story of raising two children in a broken home and encourages us that successful parenting can still take place whatever the circumstances. Through her own experiences and lessons learned throughout her career, Gabrielle offers a clear and practical approach to the world of single parenting.
As a single parent who is Black, one of Gabrielle's greatest concerns is the absence of the father in the African American community. Although this is a huge issue in the African American community, Gabrielle feels that no one has stepped up and offered a solution. The Myth of the Broken Home offers a recipe for responsible single parenting, not only in the African American community but in communities all across America and especially those with disadvantaged backgrounds.

Radio Worth Waiting For!

 Hello everyone! Well, as much as I had wanted to begin broadcasting The Catherine Bradford Show as soon as July 16th on LA Talk Radio, it appears that we are all going to have to wait for that DEBUT SHOW.
