There was some youngsters outside my house Skateboarding recently and it just brought back memories of how I used to be a die-hard Skater... Although I never made it to the professional level lol, as a child I NEEDED that positive alternative.. I grew up in Compton SURROUNDED by gangs & killings, but because I was a Skater, all I wanted to do is Skate.. nothing else! ..... And this was before the Lil Wayne's, Pharell's and TK's picked up the Skateboard so it wasn't even popular to the black culture.. (all we had was Kareem Campbell!) .... So although I was being made fun of for doing Kickflips & Boardslides, that kept me out of PRISON! so I thank God that He gave me an interest in Skateboarding bcuz it kept me out of trouble....
TIP: Your children WILL be influenced by something, but as the parent, you have the power to CHOOSE what they're influenced by ....... Give them a POSITIVE alternative ..... God bless!
