“Stranger Danger,Stranger Danger” I repeated to my 5 year old neighbor. She had no idea what I was talking about . Her mother told her that she was going to the shop,3 hours passed she the little kid was becoming worried. She asked me if I was going to the shop , if yes , she wanted me to look for her mother .
The child saw a man passing and ran to her gate , she said “Excuse me,excuse me,are you going to the shop ? If you see my mommy,tell her to come home please!!” I ran out of my house to warn her about the dangers of doing this . When I saw her she was in a vest and she was not wearing her shorts . I became enraged because I could foresee the dangers in calling out to stranger . At the time she was being supervised by her 17 year old sister. I warned her sister that this was incredibly dangerous.
Parents , please remember to warn your kids about the current occurrences of missing children . There must be a way for us to have these conversations with kids . Long gone are the days of avoiding difficult discussions with children.
As I pen this note to my 2 faithful readers,I am watching an episode of “Saved by the Bell”. The students were in class and all had presentations to make to explore a real business that they will start.
After each presentation,the teacher asked if the student if the really believed in the product? When the response was positive , the teacher gave each student an envelope with $100 USD as seed money. He told them to plant that seed and make it grow. He reminded the students to remain motivated.
The next order of business was to get a name for it ,followed by appointment of Presidents. Initially the friends ,the stars of the show ,decided to make “friendship bracelets “. The students believed that their ideas were worth millions. After one week,the students had to explain the progress of their respective businesses.the students reported on net profits and marketing strategies.
I was amazed that such a course existed and the time frame was in the 90’s. This will make a great change to our economy in Trinidad. Students will become empowered,and after graduating they can pursue their business full time . There many degree holders who are unemployed because they lack soft skills , or income generating skills.
