NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — On Monday, January 30, “106 & PARK” will air a special episode dedicated to young parents titled “Young, Single & Parenting.”  The live, 90-minute special will deal exclusively with issues affecting young parents focusing specifically on the realities of African American youth.

Hosted by Terrence J and Rocsi, “106 & PARK Presents: Young, Single & Parenting” will speak directly to youths in the trenches – young people who are currently parents and those expecting.  Participants will be informed of the responsibilities they can expect, the resources available and their rights as parents.

“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,” said Hill.

On “Young, Single & Parenting” viewers will hear live testimonials from young, single parents in our studio audience.  Rappers Don Trip and Tray Chaney, both young parents, will join the show to discuss their videos – Trip’s “Letter to My Son” feat. Cee-Lo Green and Chaney’s “Fatherhood.”  In-studio experts, Dr. Michelle (www.drmichelle.com) and Dr. Tartt (www.drtartt.com), will be on hand to answer questions submitted via a live online chat on BET.com/YSPTips.
