(AllHipHop News) BET's hit countdown show "106 & Park" will address the topic of teens and parenting, during a special episode that will air next week.
Hosts Terrence J. and Rocsi will welcome a number of special guests during the "Young, Single and Parenting” 90-minute special, which will focus on issues affecting young parents, specifically African-American youth.
Rapper Don Trip will discuss his track "Letter To My Son," while actor/poet Tray Chaney will explain the motivation behind his video “Fatherhood."
The guests will be joined by in-studio experts, Dr. Michelle and Dr. Tartt.
"We are proud of our place as the only daily source of Black Youth culture on television and we know it’s about more than music, celebrities and fun,” said Stephen Hill, BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials. “On 106 & Park, we’ve taken the time to discuss relationship violence, teen body image issues, AIDS prevention and other topics relevant to our audience. Many in our audience are young parents and need more information and guidance than they’re getting about how to work through certain issues; not the least of which is working on the relationship with the other parent for the benefit of the child. It’s our hope that this special edition of 106 & PARK will help strengthen young families."
Both doctors will answer questions live from the audience during the special, which will air on January 30 at 6:00pm.
