There are so many idea’s about what it takes to make our children successful. Some people say that it’s a strong family structure, some say that it’s the level of education, others say that it’s the drive and desire of the child. I was in an intense discussion the other day with some folks that have the attitude that unless a child comes from an enviornment where there is a Mother and Father in the household, then the child won’t be successful. Now the reason that I said it was an intense discussion was because I called the person that made the statement crazy! With a very high percentage of children growing-up in single parent households, if what they said was true, than most children in the African Community are doomed to fail.

I don’t believe that! I’ve always been told that as long as you have love in the home, than love will make all the difference. It worked for me, and if it worked for me, it can work for anyone. I really would like to know what you think. What do you think it take for our children to be successful. Let me Know.
