Why Some Seeds Don't Grow: 10 Principles for Educating Mentoring and Parenting Urban Youth (Paperback)
There are gaps in the homes, communities, and schools of America's urban youth. These gaps have become a major source of social and educational inequity. America's urban youth are fertile seeds full of great potential. Unfortunately, many of those seeds do not grow to reach the full maturity of the possibilities they possess. In clear and compelling terms, Dr. Miller uses metaphors to insightfully uncover principles to stimulate growth in urban youth. A few of which are:
- - Specific Seeds Require Specific Needs
- - Accept only what you expect
- - Make the Seed aware of their Seeds
- - Rotate the Crops
"Why Some Seeds Don't Grow," explores 10 principles that will help those who mentor, parent, and educate urban youth develop the mindset needed to help those seeds grow toward maximizing their potential and accomplishing their purpose.
