    Sounds good but unfortunately most of the people in charge of helping our youth today our the ones who are the ones abusing them. You can't trust nobody these days with your children. Such a shame and a total mess. Some of these people in charge of helping our youth are child predators.and only take the position in order to abuse our children. Teachers counselors doctors police authority. Family nebigbors bosses. Churches all be praying on our youth. Not too mention the streets and the awful people the end of turning too. Gangs drugs robbing killing etc. Cause there no trust help or protection anymore. And it is always not the parents fault some parents do try to do best they can to raise their children right but you can't keep them lock up at home they have to go out in the world and experience life and be able to function with other and learn life skills but they always say it takes a village to raise a kid. Well now a days you can't trust nobody. And what are you and the youth supposed to do when the village is totally Broken?

  • Thanks Clinette, yes so true we do have people in positions of authority, who prey on on our youth. However, it's not all of these people, what we the residents and others who would consider trying something like this would need to do is deep background checks, research and do...

    Thanks Clinette, yes so true we do have people in positions of authority, who prey on on our youth. However, it's not all of these people, what we the residents and others who would consider trying something like this would need to do is deep background checks, research and do what it would take to get the results we're seeking. We cannot as a community let fear of getting the wrong people abusers, predators etc, become the overriding factor and stop us in our tracks of getting something like this off the ground. There are non profits and other resources out here that can assist us with our questions, on what would be feasible for our neighborhoods and our communities to put a plan together that we would like to try and accomplish. We have to Try and fight for ourselves collectively. Not a cure all but who knows the success we could achieve, I just think we must try, get involved these are our neighborhoods, and communities, why uproot, abandon and leave only to be confronted with the same problem in the next neighborhood we've escaped to. Thanks for reading it's only suggestions.
