FATHER = Fathers are The Hoods Extracted Resource.

This book is a GREAT PIECE OF WORK, why? It addresses the solutions , we all know the problems, but this book breaks down the role of fathers in THE HOOD. It is a sort of a guide of sorts.

Here are a few issues that will be covered.

Child Support - why should you get credit for paying child support, this is something that you are supposed to do. When you were dating, you paid for the ass, and now that you have created some ass, you do not want to pay at all. Sorry. It is your obligation for life......

Responsibility - Be repsonsible to yourselves as men , and then you can be repsonsible to your family. One of the main issues in regards to being a Father, please do not live with your parents, unless it is an extreme circumstance, I don't call being lazy or a mama boy an extreme circumstance. Hint - if you never ever leave home, what can you show your children and how will their futures be?

Earning Your Keep - You cannot go through life not being aproductive member of society, because in The Hood our children already have enough going against them, and now you as their father are not earning your keep, all this does is make your children more confused more so, because the real world has no time for a free-loader.

Good Evening to you all, I have a question for you mothers, do you know if your daughters are really going to college? Do yourselves a favor and check up on them, every now and then. The reason why I say this is, college students seem to think that they are grown,butthey are forgetting one thing. You the parents are paying their way through college, especially if they are still living in your home. We as parents need to know this. The reason why I am addressing this to mothers is: Most, not all mothers in THE HOOD, defend their children 100% and do not even know what they are doing. This is a major problem within our inner city neighborhoods. Most of you do not know what your children are doing. It would do you good to find this out, it cna save them as well as boost their morale , just to know that you care. This picture here is a picture of my younger sister, yes she is 19 but I still go to her school atleast twice a week, unannounced , and guess what, she is in class. Trust me, when they know that you care, at times it does make a difference. Posted by Picasa

The Bay Bridge

Attention Mothers, please introduce your daughters and sons into the field of Architecture-Technology and or finance. Being a Dancer and or a Entertainer is a one in a million shot. It is fine to have a dream, but you need to give your children a choice or a direction. Posted by Picasa

Your Sons

Your sons,

Hello Moms. Let's take a minute to start on a controversal issue. Black Men. You need to keep your sons busy from this age 4yrsold on up, especially when it comes to their education.

Life is to tough on Black Men forever, so you need to be tough on them from a young age. They need to work , they need to go to school, they need to own their own businesses, they need to mow the lawn,they need to wash dishes, they need to feed the dog, they need to do all of this at the same time, and above all, they need to be loved 360 degrees all the way around. I said loved, not babied.

If you do not know how to do this, cry out for help now, not when he is 14yrs old. So please please please save your sons now, and you will see the results later. Nine times out of ten, our sons imitate what they see in front of them. So it is your job to show them a Woman and then they will know how to chose one. By you being a great woman , it gives them something to go by, a guide of sorts.

Please do not take offense to this BLOG, just get up and do your job and more. Posted by Picasa

You may ask , what does he know about raising a son???

Simple, I had the greatest woman in the world raise me, and that woman is my mother. She is great, I have never ever met anyone come up to her level. She is just well rounded.She and my Dad were on the same page when it came to the children.

Education Battles Inflation

Hello Mothers -

The EBI Factor, this book will help you save you and your family from years of the same old thing. The Hood is full of stress like no other neighborhood within the country.

Yes there are many HOODS, please do your part to make yours a better place to live. We owe this to ourselves. Most of all we owe this to our children, we all need to not just only be educated, but stay educated.

That is the only way that we can fight inflation and win, because Infaltion brings a whole level of stress in THE HOOD, that you would not believe. So lets stay educated and keep down the stress. Posted by Picasa

It's in our nature as mothers to be caregivers, to the point that we forget to care for ourselves too.

Mothers, it's okay to take the time out for your self every day, that's right, every day. Whether it's 15 minutes, an hour or even more, do something for you. Don't abuse your self in the form of self neglect. Make up your mind to set up dates for you, with you; don't feel guilty, just go for it and enjoy!

Your health is depending upon it.

Good Evening Mothers

Good Evening Mothers

Good Evening Mothers ,

Please take the time out to hug your children tonight. Trust me it does make a difference in their lives to know that they are embraced in more ways than one, especially at bedtime ,and when they are on their way to school in the morning, try making their morning a great experience rather than a routine one. Our children in East Oakland have enough to deal with in the streets ,let alone in the ride of a car or a bus or a walk to school every morning. Thank You Posted by Picasa

The reason why I know this to be true, I never ever went to school on an empty stomach and love was always their from my mom and dad. I am just passing it on to you and yours.
