What’s A Parent To Do?


Oklahoma is anything but family-friendly. One in five kids doesn’t know where their next meal will come from. Nearly half the women of child-bearing age live in maternity deserts – not a single birthing facility in their home counties. Twenty percent of Sooners remain uninsured. Child care remains unaffordable and inaccessible for far too many. Teacher-turned-lawmaker and mother of three, OKC Sen. Carri Hicks, joins us for this week’s Observercast – What’s A Parent To Do? – to help us better understand the challenges facing our state’s families and to discuss what can be done to help create a brighter, healthier future for all Oklahomans.
