My childhood should have taught me lessons for my own fatherhood, but it didn't because parenting can only be learned by people who have no children.
We are all anxious to be accepted. But if you have a strong mother and father who tell you that you don't have to dress a crazy way, or hang out with people who are looking for trouble in order to be loved and accepted, then half the battle is over.
You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it.
If you have one of the worst schools in the city, then chances are the teachers are not going to care for you. Chances are the parents don't feel seriously about coming to meet with teachers.
