Black Youth

Our Children Are The Solution, Not The Problem

I interviewed my grand daughter Aya Woods (freshman in Highschool) who says that she is not learning much in school. We as a community a lot of time see teenagers as the problem, not the solution. Aya says She is feeling so bored and sad at school; she views what is being taught to her does not help create financial freedom. If we listen to our children we can know the direction we should take in the education system. After this interview, Aya felt she was heard not as a child but as an adult. Her dad came on the show and that encouraged her greatly. She said, she feels now more purposeful and hopeful.

Thank you Aya for your insightful answers. I particularly loved your suggestions that other subjects in on-line school would be far more interesting and of use to students today. I’m glad you can tell the difference physical exercise can play in our emotional well-being. I would love to study wealth building with you and other interested young people.
