These people need more than a miracle to save these young girls from being raped, become strippers,prostitutes or teenage mothers with no clue who the father is.
Clearly they are being exposed to it (and encouraged) at home.
We cannot break the cycle of poverty, abuse, under-education,crime, violence if this is what our children are learning.
My daughter is one of the top students in her class, she has never failed a grade, she speaks, reads and writes English,French and Spanish.
She takes swimming, gymnastics and jui jitsu classes. She also takes origami classes.
Since she was four years old she said she wants to be a doctor, we are and will continue to guide her in the right path so that she will be a professional, productive member of society.
I know that not everybody has the $$ to enroll their child in an out of school program, but even the way we talk to our children, the time we make for them makes a differnce.
If you were misstreated or abused as a child you NEED to want it to be better for your child.
Talk to your child the way you wish your parents had spoken to you, treat your child the way you would have wanted your parents to treat you. and always always say positive thing to them about them so that their self esteem will soar.
If you do not believe in yourself nobody will believe in you !
To the world you are a nobody, but to somebody you are the world !!!
