Good morning everyone! While reflecting over my life,realized that I made a lot of mistakes. I’ve done several things that went against some of the things that my mother taught me. I can remember standing on those dangerous street corners of Riverside Projects in Wilmington, Delaware. I sold drugs as well as used them. I took trips to Philadelphia and New York City in order to make a quick flip.I lived a completely reckless life. In my book “100 Years” http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00TLXK5L6, I explained how I continued taking risk with my life and ended up learning things the hard way. As I fast forward back to 2015, some of our youth are doing the same things I did or even worse. My question is: Is there hope for our youth? As parents; are we doing all that we can in order to guide, teach, and set a good example for our youth to follow? On the other hand, should we give- up on our youth and allow them to learn the hard way? Let me know your thoughts!
