When i was younger...prior to having a job, i was always finding ways to hustle up on some money. My mom didnt make too much (and pops wasnt around) so i was always game to do some work for somebody for some cash. I lived in the projects, so it was a lil hard to rake folks grass or cut it...cuz hell, it was done for them. So me and some friends would venture out to Metro-Smith Homes to find folks who wanted there leaves raked and grass cut. In the winter, same goes for searching for houses to shovel snow. I remember days where we got snowed in from school, i'd go out all day, in the cold..to come back with 20-30 bucks...was great!!!
In the last 3 years or so since i've been in my house, I can count on my hand the times i've have had kids come by for work. Are families in the inner city that well off that kids are content?? i think not. I think the video era is back stronger than ever. Tv seems to be the ultimate babysitter now adays. Parenting seem to be a lil softer than say 10-15 years ago. My nephew is a big cartoon fan. I want him to be well verse.......so for x mas...its BOOKS.....check em out!!
