Are You Raising One Of The Next Generation Of Hoodlums?

by Dr. Joyce Willard Teal

Are You Raising One of the Next Generations of Hoodlums will become a monthly column in the Informer. Dr. Teal, the author of this column, and her husband, Prince O'Teal, co-authored a book bearing this same title. The book was recently released by Publish America and is being widely read by parents, grandparents, and others who are concerned with the plight of the black male in America.

The authors hope that this column will become one that is also widely read by those charged with the responsibility for and concerned with the plight of Black Boys. The column promises to be one that will provide information and tips that can assist you with the raising of your son and that it will become a column that you will enthusiastically seek.

In the opening lines of the book, readers are told, "We're losing our black boys. We're losing them to the streets, the penal system, the early grave, drug/alcohol addiction and to mediocrity. Yet, these same beautiful black boys, when nourished and nurtured by sets of united parents who love them unconditionally, are capable of astronomical accomplishments."

After reading the preceding paragraph, one might be left to wonder what hope there is for the black boys who are not being nourished and nurtured by sets of united parents who love them unconditionally. But the fact of the matter is: there is hope for these boys also. However, when a boy is being reared by anyone other than his own united parents who love him unconditionally, he is at a distinct disadvantage and those who are rearing this boy must assure that certain events take place in his life. What are these events, and how do these events assist to assure that a boy is being nourished and nurtured in spite of the fact that his own mother and father are not providing him with unconditional love? Stay tuned!
