Format: Paperback
The societal pressures of young black culture often prove to be a roadblock to educational advancement. "A Brighter Day: How Parents Can Help African American Youth" is a guide aimed at parents who want to help their children gain a respect and desire to learn to break the mold that so many young black students fall into. Good habits are important to form young as they will stay with children throughout their youth and through high school. "A Brighter Day" is a fine pick for any African American parent who wants more for their child.
