Part 4: Caribbean 1
Learn about The Covenant with Black America and the work being done by The Jamestown Project at Harvard. Get The Foundational Covenant - "Strengthening the Family".
We implore you to talk with your children; find out what they are thinking, and how they are engaged when away from home.
We also beseech Black people today to Abolish the "N" word. Visit this link and discuss what you see with your children. There is NOTHING positive about using the "N" word to each or about each other.
Visit the Jamestown link and see some of the very dynamic and positive things to get involved in right in New Haven www.jamestownproject.org.
What are you doing to Strengthen Your Family? Do you think it is an impossible task?
Here are a few additional resources for you to explore:
"Time devoted exclusively to nurturing a cherished person or activity."
Working moms and dads are left with so few hours of downtime that it can seem impossible to nurture their children exclusively.

Please check out this link; it leads to great information. Here is a synopsis:
Parenting is a job-the most important on Earth. However, the wonderful job of parenting can seem more like a chore when only one parent is involved. There are no sick, vacation, or personal business days when you're raising a kid on your own. Without two parents, the job loses some of its perks and sometime leaves single parents feeling burnt out.
