Today's youth are deprived of normal everyday necessities and we as parents, grandparents, uncles, aunties, and/ or just friends of the family don't take the time and sit down to get an understanding of why the children are so rebellious.Most children today are raised in a single family home where mom is the only source of training. Then on top of that situtiation she has to work or go to school to support their family. I learned in my sociology class that we are victims to our life chances, clearly meaning the chances we give our children are mostly based on the status of living we provide for them. Realizing that my young African American children are, sadly to say, doom from the beginning because I'm not in a position to provide all the luxuries of life is a horrendous grief. I would like you all to help me in trying to better our community by giving the children somewhere monitored and safe to be children, like they should be.When I was a young girl there where parks in almost every neighborhood and i didn't have to worry about being approached by gangs, drugs, or witness shooting in my everyday living environment. Trust this is the first of many changes to come if you all are willing to participate in the upgrading of your living environment. Help make the Warren Apartments more than just a low income project in Memphis, TN. Thank you for your time and participation.
