Education is supposed to be the proper cultivation of the gifts and talents of the individual through the acquisition of knowledge. True education cultivates the person - mind, body, and spirit - by bringing us closer to fulfilling our purpose for being...

The second purpose for education, after self cultivation s to teach us how to give proper service to self, family, community ,nation and then to the world...  

When we see the curriculum as an outgrowth of self, then we can identify with the curriculum, giving us as an incentive to learn.  .. Learning is facilitated because the student identifies with the subjects. ..  When we relate the forces within self to the forces that lie outside aself, this connects us to subjects we are studying in a manner that we can ultimately master those subjects. 

"I am chemistry." not, "I am a student of chemistry." rather  "I am biology. I am economics. I am history. I am mathematics."   

When we relate the forces within self to the forces that lie outside the self, this connects us to subjects we are studying in a manner that we can ultimately master those subjects.  

Our bodies are controlled by the mind.  So mastering economics should not be as difficult with this thought in mind.  This body takes in and separates what is useful, puts it to productive use, and elminates what is wasteful.  Therefore this body is economics and since I am the master of this body, I can master economics. Excerpt TLA Pg. #47-64





In order to help youngsters make appropriate decisions, it is important to understand the motivation behind pursuing roads that often lead to self-destruction:

[_] 1. Lack of parental involvement

Youth require parental and adult influences that are positive and constructive to have conversations about:

  • [_] life,
  • [_] feelings,
  • [_] thoughts,
  • [_] behaviors, and the
  • [_] future.
  • When youth have someone they can "communicate with", sharing their thoughts, feelings with, or bounce ideas with, it prepares them for peer pressure, increasing their confidence in rejecting negative social interactions, and being independent, making positive decisions own their own. Youth with adult involvement are more likely to be less problematic as adolescents and young adults.

[_] 2. Poor parenting due to strain, lack of support, or disinterest

Many parents are overworked and under-supported. Many parents, lack the "village" it takes to raise and support a child. As a result, many parents slack off or let go of their responsibilities, leaving their children to "figure things out." on their own

Children may feel left "alone" because one or both parents frequently drinks, binges, or indulgent in substance abuse. Even if a parent is physically present. Youth need to have a positive home environment geared towards motivating children to do positive things with their lives. The "positive environment" must begin with the parent(s).

[_] 3. Parental Substance abuse

Using alcohol and illicit drugs such as marijuana to prescription drugs. Substance abuse of any kind removes an individual's mind and emotions from the present environment. It is very difficult for children to be motived to do positive things when their very own parents struggle with substance abuse or alcohol addiction. Children can sense when their parent(s) are not emotionally and mentally present. This may influence a child to enter gangs for companionship and the love they cannot receive at home.

[_] 4. Negative peer influence

  • [_] Siblings,
  • [_] friends,
  • [_] strangers of the same age, and
  • [_] extended family members of the same age as the youth.

The way in which a peer handles stress, expectations, consequences, etc., has a great deal of influence on others of the same age. If a youngster decides to become oppositional, rebellious, or problematic, other youngsters are likely to follow, especially if that teens behavior has resulted in desired rewards.

[_] 5. Negative experiences with school and/or law enforcement

When children are frequently perceived as worthless, they are more likely to fail, becoming: 

  • [_] discouraged
  • [_] stops doing well in school
  • [_] stops doing homework
  • [_] stops participating in school extracurricular activities
  • [_] stops trying.

As a result, they are perceived to be failures, lazy, or inattentive. These labels reduce their self-esteem.

Law enforcement are uninformed about the behaviors of troubled youths with or without mental health problems. As a result, many  youth are taken to jail, juvenile halls, or similar places. These experiences often "push" youngsters into the arms of the first group of children who seem to like them, protect them, and share something in common. A petty crime may be viewed as a positive thing in this group. Despite the negativity of this, a youngster may see this as self-worth.

Things To Do In Atlanta




Twenty-nine states have deregulated electricity, natural gas or both. That allows you to shop for the supply portion of your bill from alternative providers who may offer rates lower than the default supplier – usually a utility. Delivery services and billing will remain the responsibility of the local utility as they own the power lines and wires that keep the lights on.

Planning For The Future

The amount of money parents spend on children, which used to peak when they were in high school, is now highest when they are under 6…” To give children opportunities for extracurricular activities, find affordable options for such at recreation centers, cultural centers, municipal sports leagues instead of traveling club teams,. Local swim teams, & school bands instead of private music lessons. Colleges and universities tend to look at these things as a marker of a child’s achievement. 



"We need to do more to curb and guide the natural aggressive tendencies among young men.  In the wealthy communities the rich are able to channel the aggression of their young men into meaningful activities.  Their youth have better athletic facilities, they go to summer camps, and there are many leagues and team sports in which the young boys can participate.   The government, locally and nationally, should place some focus on providing team activities and athletic facilities in channelling the energy and aggression of our young men. This would minimize the need of some of our young males to engage in gang activitiy to exercise their manhood.  This would help reduce the hostility that seeps into the school environment and disrupts the educational process."  Excerpt TLA pg. 47-61
