I don’t know about you, but where we live, there isn’t much for the young girls, but more for the boys to do other than get into trouble. We live in a small country town, without much for the kids to do. There is one park, and most of the young people end up on drugs including ice and drinking alcohol, and generally get into trouble by the police.
I joined a mentor group called The Society of Australian Mentors, and since I joined I have had a bit of an urge to go to the school and talk to the young kids about starting up their own business, try and teach these young kids there is more to life than going on the dole, drinking every day etc etc. These kids are going to end up in detention centres, I know of one boy who, at 15 has 23 charges against him.
This is common everywhere, not many parents know this about their children, they hide it well. Like our son. He got off the rails for a little while, now he has a beautiful partner and 3 gorgeous girls. I am so proud of him.
I would like your opinion of having a mentoring session in the classroom just a half an hour to an hour session once a week or once a month. I have had many years experience in owning my own businesses over the years. We have owned a great variety of businesses, all started off because there were no jobs around.
please give your honest opinion, i would love to help these kids xxx dee
