Accompanying Youth in Developing what I call ¨the self

A live´s lesson learned
No need to explain, my aim explains it.

In a community where our youth is the first generation to have access to high school in their own community, but where their have learned important lessons about life form their local parents and grandparents - the rooted family - I believe we have the responsibility of teaching them to develop the self, not only to harness the opportunities that are opening to them. Some of them have had irresponsible birth fathers and they all need to understand that they do nit have to be like them, but develop their own values by learning the lessons.

Hi Sonia,
How are you doing. A happy new year. It is very true that we need to be on the same page and make sure that we are there for the youth in our community. They are now the majority and the future of the nation so we need to make sure that they are on the right path because they are the future leaders and parents of this nation. Everything we do now will determine what they become.
Thank you so much for sharing. Have a lovely day.

Hello Sonia, thanks for sharing.
I actually agree to the fact that youth actually need alot of training on themselves faced with some ill habits learned from the community and family.
They need to be trained to be the real version of themselves and not an imitation of another person. They need to understand some core values about life....

Hello Sonia,
Yes our children learn from their parents and we need to raise them in a such a manner that they don't become replica's of past mistakes rather they need to be agents of change and become better persons.

Dear Sonia,

What a laudable initiative. DF is so right, it is far easier and more commendable to build great kids than to repair broken adults. All the best for your project and so keep us updated.

Light and love
