Shhh...Grown Folks Is Talking (Ebook)
I am “Mom” because of my nurturing parents -- My Grandparents, Leroy and Roberta.
I wanted my son to realize that I didn’t start life at 40. The knowledge of how to fairly delegate chores and to regulate video game usage did not happen by osmosis. For my sake and theirs, my children needed to know their family history. So, why not begin with me.
As a kid and a teenager, I marveled at how Grandma and Grandpa, although not “proper” English speakers, had a way of explaining things. So, any words from their lips rang right and true. Nestled comfortably beneath the sofa, I relished every word. From my world view, as a child, there existed two categories: Grandma and Grandpa and then everybody else.
Our traits come in pairs. We are either optimistic or pessimistic, independent or dependent, adventurous or cautious, leader or follower. We are all born with these traits but the characteristics we adopt, such as feeling either competent or inferior, appear to be acquired through the challenges and support we receive growing up.
Learn how I fought my way through adolescence, the pains of fitting in and cynicism, with the help and love of my grandparents sprinkled with some well-organized mischief.
In this crazy world, let the wisdom inside this book be your guide.
