The world has changed drastically in a relatively short period of time and that our children are in peril unless we take wise and loving measures to raise them in the midst of this cultural minefield. “what we do to the youth, they will do to society” if those words ring true, then we are in for a whole lot of trouble and if we don’t counter the trend, our youth will increasingly lack the emotional resilience and social competence that is needed to make society a safe, fair and happy place. If we want to improve on situations of the youth, then we must realize that it may take as long to improve as it did to break down in the first place.
So join us start a revolution on how we view, think, respond and act towards young people.
