2016-17 Graduation- Family Milestone

I am floating on cloud nine right about now!  By many accounts, I should not be where I am. I should not be married. I shouldn’t have smart children, nor should they be graduating, especially from college! BUT GOD!

This year, I have been honored to have not one, but 4 graduates to celebrate. My husband, my oldest son, and two of my daughters. It was not planned or budgeted. But think goodness for the life style we have. Because of that reason alone we are gonna celebrate in the most grand way possible. After all, how often do you get 4 graduates in one year?

 

My graduates- Raj- Husband- Army Veteran, Central Piedmont Community College/CPCC –  Elementary Education majorIMG_5125-001

My oldest son- Jervon jervon                 Basketball MVP, Hampton University, Hampton VA.  B.S. Liberal Arts

Below is a clip from one of his recent games at Hampton University. Watch here!

 

My 2nd oldest daughter- JC        Working Teen, Hemingway High, College bound- She hasn’t decided what she wants to do as of yet. jcp

My 3rd oldest daughter- DeeDua , teenpernuer,  Providence High School Trade School Paralegal Studies dee

 

I’m so proud of each of them. Each of them were born with obstacles to overcome. From being the child of a single mom to starting life on this side some 4 months early. As they say the tassel was worth the hassle. They made it! Who else is celebrating a graduate? The video below is of a Momsrising friend of mine. She was sharing some motivational tips for my daughter DeeDua. Listen in!

I am so proud of each of my scholars. I know they are prepared for whatever life throws at them. My hope is that the younger one will follow their path and not mine as it relates to student loans. Going to college for free is a blessing. My husband education was sponsored by the Veteran administration. My son attended all four years under a athletic scholarship. My daughters had to search and apply for hundreds of grants and scholarships. The money is out there. You can get some too!

Friday Four: What NOT To Do To A Teen Mom

The memories! The moment I learned that I was pregnant, I wanted to find the largest container of orange juice and just die under a rock. From the time my little guy was born, I always felt that I had something to prove to him, our supporters,our small town, other teen moms, and myself.

100 Things You Should Never Say to a Teen Mom

Just In Case you cross this bridge, here’s 4 Things You Should Really NOT Do To a Teen Mom:

  1. Shame or Degrade her- This is number one for a reason. OMG! You have no clue how much damage this causes. When your own flesh and blood teases you, make you the family calamity, and under dog. Even worse when the fathers family and her community dishonors her. You are asking for a mess. A broken, lonely, lost mess. It’s like saying “You’ve passed the point of no return.” She may believe it. Speak blessings into her life.
  2. Discourage her- This birth has effected her life as well. Work with her. If you discover an opportunity for her, tell her about it. Babysit while she goes to school, work or appointments. Offer to do the child’s hair, help with a birthday party. Mentor and support her into a mom the baby can be proud of.
  3. Disown the unborn- Most times it’s the fathers family that snarls at a unplanned teenage pregnancy. For some reason, his family thinks the girl wants the family treasures. Well, guess what, sometimes it’s true. At this point. So what? You have the opportunity to  groom another family member to be a part of your family goals. That baby maybe the missing piece of your family vision toward greatness. Don’t kill your blessing. That’s what DNA testing is for.
  4. Expect her to forgive you after you’ve done ALL of the above.-  Something can’t be healed once destroyed. Words do hurt. Somethings you should just keep to yourself if it’s not going to help the situation. That mom may not bring it up, but she will remember. You can not get out what you don’t put in. This includes love, respect, and acknowledgement.

 

 

“Teen parents want to be acknowledged as contributing members of society, not as society’s ailment. Not only are we leaders, activists, business owners, educators and so much more, but we are also raising intelligent and curious children who go on to do great things!”
– Mariely Moronta-Santos, 27, a mom of three who lives in Brooklyn, New York, and became a mother at 16

“I wish society would look at us as mothers.”
– Caitlin Shay, 26, mother of two who lives in Apopka, Florida, and became a mother at 17

I have five more to go before I can claim a total win,but so far so good. It has not been easy. But Oh My, it’s been worth every one of the obstacles and setbacks.

Success IS Indeed the greatest revenge. It is true. I would put my neck on a chopping block to swear by it. As I sit back and think of the upcoming month, I can’t help but smile and try to contain my extreme excitement.  I know it’s nothing but grace and mercy, but My God, the favor that is upon me right now is what I’ve been waiting on. I have FOUR graduates busting caps and gowns this year!  Two of my daughters, my oldest son and my husband.  Can you believe that?

This teen mom, single mom, mother of nine, once displaced*, gal from South Carolina, has 8 remaining- healthy children and every last one of them are thriving! Being a teen mom is not the worst thing to happen. When it happens encourage her to accept the call of motherhood and be the best she can possibly be. That way everyone wins.

I’m so grateful for my parents. I KNOW that I disappointed them. I KNOW that they too were catching slack because of their baby girl getting pregnant as a teen. I know my sisters were tried after the town knew that I was giving up ‘my cookies’. I am sorry everyone. I hope my recent accomplishments say thank, I’m proud of. You’ve done a great job by the children, So glad you didn’t let us down. Because of you I am a doula, wedding officiant, homeschooler, brander ambassador, mom coach, Queen City Stay At Home Moms organizer, social activist, and wife.

Happy Friday,

Kelle

When Food,Clothing, and Shelter Isn’t Enough

Big ups for the parents that provide clothes, food, and shelter for their child (ren)!

It’s not always easy, yet you have shown commitment, honor and determination to your family. THANK YOU! But are you preparing them for life after high school? Do you know what your child may be interested in?  What might she/he study as an profession?

As a parent, you have the ability to help your children develop critical, advantageous skills for a lifetime!

Here’s the scene~ The family is sitting around the house. Dinner has been served and laundry is done. The children are playing outside. This happens day in and day out for many days. Nothing more nothing less. Child eventually graduates from high school.The family tell child to leave and be happy.

What Else Do YOU Need?

Parent: Sweetie, I’m so proud of you. Graduation is coming  up really soon. What will you do?

Child: I know. I haven’t given it much thought. I don’t know what I want to do. What do you think I should do? I haven’t seen anything I ever wanted to do.Maybe I could model,  rap, or something?  I do get lots of hits online.

Parent: Hmm, nope! I’m so sorry. I guess I haven’t  exposed you to many options and opportunities.

So what do kids need outside of the basic, food , clothing and shelter? Opportunities! Like this one….. Charlotte Youth Broadcasting  If you don’t  expose your child to different professions, skills, -positive experiences,  there is no way they will know what they like and dislike. Resulting in them taking longer to satisfy  their need for self sufficiency/self-actualization.

I’m gonna do you a favor and share with you what other families are saying about Charlotte Youth Broadcasting:

My  son Jordan has been to many camps and after a day or two, that was just another camp. Not the case after attending CYBC!! The CYB Camp allowed him to have a hands on experience at WBTV and WCCB. The video clips, photographs and the techniques that were used to enable him to be confident in front of a camera are priceless!

                    Watch This Video From Charlotte Youth Broadcasting Click Here!

Jordan was able to go behind the scenes with the real folks, sit through a live taping of a 12 noon news at WBTV and walk their own RED CARPET, yes I said RED CARPET!!! Ms. Antriece made all of this and much more possible at this week long camp. Please sign up your kids to attend the Charlotte Youth Broadcasting Camp, it will change and spark a new fire in your child’s life!!! It did for my Jordan!”

CYBC

 Our Camp encourages campers ages 10-12 and ages 13-17 how to work with each other combining diversity, using broadcast media, technology, and engaging them with others in an increasingly broadcasting world. They will learn the basic media tools in a fun collaborative environment which provides our youth with the skills to utilize the media technologies in a positive and productive way. This camp is a great way to break the fear of public speaking and will teach campers how to articulate.

 Camp Cost: $300.00 per week w/Lunch & 2 snacks 

Deposit $60.00 (non-refundable) to hold camper(s) weekly space. Remaining balance paid prior to or on the 1st day of camp, or pay the amount in full to hold camper(s) space.

College Weekend In The QC With My Teens!

I graduated from Johnson and Wales University with two degrees. It was a fun wild and time to put it mildly. Some 20 years later, if  I knew then, what I know now, I may have attended a Vocation/Trade school. For some reason, I grew up thinking it was an automatic decision.

It would have saved me time and loads of money. BUT then I wouldn’t be QC Supermom right? No looking back! But what I CAN do is ensure I prepare a spread of options before my children, and encourage them to find their own path.  With that in mind, we are now prepping 3 daughters for life after high school .

Over the weekend, I took two of my daughters to two separate fairs this weekend. Both were extremely informative!

So much so that it got me thinking about going back to school to enhance what I’m doing now in my birthing services. But that’s another story for another day.

The Fast Track hosted Saturday ‘s Trade School Fair.  We met LaTanya Gray from Brightwood College. (I LOVE HER!)  It was reassuring to have the kids hear what I’ve always tell them. Listen in…..

 

I was really impressed with the quality of schools there. Who knew that AVEDA  offered such a holistic menu of services. Did You Know that with their program you can become a licensed cosmetologist and Esthiology at the same time?

 

I also learned that Job Corp isn’t what I thought it was. It has changed A LOT since the 90’s. No more do they pay students when they go home for the Christmas holiday.  I also found out that they do not go after “trouble youth” anymore. But they can refer you to an agency that does. Note: They are still FREE!

The other companies in attendance was:

  • The Charlotte Star Room
  • ITT Technical Institute
  • Central Piedmont Community College -Kawan Bilal told us about the 3D printers making salads and ears! No joke! (STEM Programs)
  • ECPI University
  • Paul Mitchel
  • The Iron Yard
  • The Arts Institute
  • and Carolina School Of Broad Casting

On Saturday, the International College Fair was like entering a new world. I NEVER considered attending college aboard! Spain, Brazil, Switzerland, China, the U.K, Paris; Oh my! I was impressed. Many of the schools that were inside the U.S. offered internships aboard to help broaden their horizons.

What I figured out is that Trade School are for those that knows EXACTLY what they want to do. for a career. They teach you a trade. The focus is on preparing students to enter the workforce  upon completion of the course. A good trade school would balance conceptual and practical knowledge. One of the obvious advantages of vocational education is that it’s relatively quick: usually students complete their studies in just one or two years instead of four.

The average trade school in the U.S costs $33,000,

Traditional colleges are for those who are aren’t quite sure yet. If you have an academic bent of mind, you’re better off in a traditional college.  By design you get more classes that tends to funnel your interests into one  or maybe two concentrations.Oh and the Greek Life! Sororities and fraternities are great places to meet like-minded people and forge life-long friendships.(Something else that I didn’t do)

Trade School Maybe Better For You If…….

 RoseDale reported that the trade school scholar salary isn’t that much of a drop-off compared to a four year degree.(that statement is very vague if you ask me)  In short, explore all options and make it’s the best fit for you! The worst feeling is to question your decisions years later and be buried in student education loans.Is trade school the best or traditional college way to go is  in part, on the student’s ultimate educational and career goals.

Happy college trails my friends,

Friday Four: Finding Chastity

Ok, yes, I know it may be strange for a teen mom like myself to bring up chastity, but YES…. I am. I mean, think about it. Who better? I think I scared my husband so much that when he found out we were having daughters, the first thing came out of his mouth was”I want to get my girls to wear chastity belts!” True story.    It was the first time I have ever heard about chastity belts, but as time past, it was shout out time after time at very interesting times ranging from self preservation to political statements.

 

Believe it or not, there was an Italian woman forced to ask firefighters to liberate her from a chastity belt because she lost the key to the contraption. The woman, who has not been named due to privacy reasons, reportedly wore the belt of her own volition to stop herself from having sexual relations. Chastity belts were long thought to have been inflicted on medieval wives in order to prevent them from having affairs, but historians now believe that they are the stuff of myth; most references to chastity belts in medieval literature are satirical. Our anonymous Italian friend, it seems, did not get the memo. If only she had guarded the key to her iron panties with the same sort of fervor that she dedicated to protecting her loins. NY TIMES

“I tried to push her away, but she wouldn’t stop until she was finished. When she was, she said, “You better not say shit to no one or else you gonna get a terrible whupping.” R. Kelly via The Black Voices

4 Ways to ENCOURAGE chastity to teens:

  1. Protect what your child is exposed.  Give the talk, but walk the walk. Our children can more easily recognize the distinction between right and wrong when we are consistent models of right behavior in all matters. So know that there are some magazines, t.v. shows. and conversations you may need to keep out their reach.

“I tried to push her away, but she wouldn’t stop until she was finished. When she was, she said, “You better not say shit to no one or else you gonna get a terrible whupping.” R. Kelly via The Black Voices

2. Be mindful of who your child is exposed to. Having the right influence around your children is detrimental. My husband and I never let our children out of our sight until they were old enough to articulate what went on around them and understood that their body was private. Our ideal influence are positive, loving (but not too loving*) respectful and non over sexually seductive -dressed person, media, t.v. programs and music..

When my niece was young, like 12,  she made it very clear that not only did she know her daughter had a boyfriend she also said that she did care.  She though because her daughter minion family partydidn’t go anywhere with the boy, that meant there was no concern for that relationship. Well guess what happened less than 3 years later? Yes, she got pregnant. While I didn’t rub it in her face or reminded  her that girls don’t go from pumps to flops. Sex was bound to happen. I thanked God that I never questioned my rules toward my daughters on having boyfriends at a young age.

3. If you haven’t already, build trust. That leads to many opportunities for discussion  and  influence on the subject. We parents have so much more power than we give our-self credit for.

4.Last but not least. Get your child involved in worthwhile activities, like music, sports, drama, and hobbies that develop talents.

I never share pictures of gifts, but I had to share this one. Kaylah’s Sweet 16 gift arrived. Kudos to my Dad, the first man to place a ring on his granddaughter’s hand, he has definitely set the bar. Love him infinity. He said “who’s her Grandpa”!!

Friday Four: Home school, Charter, High and Private

This year we got two of our children accepted for an Opportunity Educational grant. The Opportunity Scholarship Program expands school choice in North Carolina through scholarship grants for eligible children in kindergarten through 12th

 

It wasn’t hard at all to get it. All I did was apply. It took less than a hour and I did it for five of my children.

Our children have been to public school, charter schools, regular high schools in low income zones and now high school in high income zone.  Let me be  the first to tell you , there is MESS in all of them if you skip a beat.

Our oldest daughter was attending Kennedy Charter last year. They put so many electives in her day. They kept promising to fix it the following semester and it never happened. Because they were easy classes, my daughter got comfortable with them too so of course she wouldn’t say anything.  As we began the process to transfer her to her current high school, instead of her being a senior, she a junior.

Now at the high income high school, ( for reading pleasure, let’s say Providence High) the counselor there won’t return phone calls to figure out a way to get her out in time. When my daughter discovered at opportunity, she replies that she has never heard of it.   So now she passing the same classes she’s taken already.

As we now prepare ourselves for private school. I am creating a checklist for signals to lookout for. Of course you can never be to sure of anything, but from dealing with a few educational warehouses,  I now can sense when to grab my child and run. Types_of_Schools_Venn_Diagram

Disclosure: I acknowledge that school systems are blessed with many gifted administrators and dedicated teachers, not all educational facilities are created equal. However, here are my four points of caution. Feel free to add yours in the comments.

  1. The large majority of your teachers have less than five years of experience- The best schools have solid veteran teaching forces, mixing in talented newcomers each year as teachers retire or move into administration or other job opportunities. When you run off your veteran teachers, you not only do not have teachers who can mentor the younger staff members and help them reach their full potential, but you also are increasing the odds that you are going to hire some less gifted teachers just to fill the vacancies. That makes it that much harder to understand why so many state legislatures are appropriating millions for inexperienced Teach for America instructors instead of spending that money to keep their best teachers in the classroom.”
  2. Does your child seem fixated on designer labels and trendy clothes for school? This is a symptom of an approach that emphasizes external rather than internal values, causing children to rely on shallower means of comparison and acceptance, rather than deeper values.
  3. The community is not involved in its schools- In many school districts, the community is kept at arm’s length until it is time to pass another bond issue or tax levy increase. Or the community involvement is restricted to a carefully selected group of business and civic leaders or the spouses of those leaders. A successful school district is one in which the involvement is organic and comes from all segments of the community, not just the ones who are needed when it comes time to ask for money. In some school districts, the community is asked for its input and then guided to give the input the administrators are seeking so they can say whatever initiative they have has the support of the community. That is not community involvement; that is pure spin
  4. Your child suffers a staggering drop in self-confidence. “Your child may begin to call himself ‘dumb’ or ‘stupid’ or is overly anxious about homework.”This is often a sign that the teaching style your child is meeting in the classroom is in direct conflict with what he or she requires to learn. Conversely, if your child is not being challenged, you may notice that he or she has started to act out in the classroom or regularly complains about being bored at school.”

Friday Four: Gratitude For All! From Tots to Teens

Everyone likes to be appreciated. EVERYONE! One of the many jobs of parenting, is to teach your children about gratitude. The world doesn’t owe them a thing. And it really isn’t that hard to do. But if it’s not programmed in them … it isn’t gonna come out of them. (Ya’ll have seen those type of children)  Even the smallest child can learn and show gratitude. Take a peek at a few ideas below.Be grateful

  1. STOP GIVING THEM SO MUCH!  Keeping thing in perspective, more and more Good Books For Kids on gratefulnesschildren are living a lie. How is it that we are in a recession, but so many of our children are carrying smart phones and Heavily branded shoes. I tell my children all of the time, “You are entitled to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” I also tell them “I refuse to dress up an empty box.”  When you reward your child(ren) for earning “Perks” (which includes volunteering, grades, character) you are teaching them more than just gratitude.I roll my eyes  at some of the things my husband do to save money, but in hind sight the end justify his actions. (Did you see the grill on the featured image. We are still using that same grill. Sure our food takes longer to cook, but when my son get’s his own home and family, his wife is gonna thank us for the raising a grateful guy!)
  2. BE A MODEL!   You already know how kids mimic EVERYTHING we do. Make an

    Seniors & team captains Reggie Johnson & Jervon Pressley went to Magruder Elementary school to speak to students about academics, pursuing goals, and being respectful to their parents and others.

    effort to super grateful in-front of your kids. Growing up people would always say to me…. why do you have such a frown on your face?” I really didn’t intend to look that way because I was a happy child. At some point I changed it. Last year, one of my private tutoring students asked in the middle of a lesson, “why do you smile all of the time?” “I don’t know, I guess because I’m happy.Don’t your mom smile at home?” I replied. Her response to that blew me away….. She said she does, but only when she’s taking a picture!….  (Talk about too Much Information – right?)

  3. SAY Thank you!

    My mother In Law is amazed by the things technology can do. So for her birthday, we had the children make a video birthday card. To prepare, I had each of them write down 2 things they loved most about her. We then talked about their list collectively and the older ones all realized how thoughtful of a grandma she is. When we began to record, they were speaking more from their hearts and less from the list. Not only was their grandma over joyed, the kids gained more gratitude for good family members that care about them ,and they all felt warm inside by sharing goodwill.  Because of this family video below, I have learned a new appreciation for all dentist, big brothers floss.  

  4. Thank them with food.

    Nothing says thanks to me like food. I just associate so much pleasure to eating, that I automatically think good things about a person who gives me food – Guys, I know I am not alone on this     Find out what their favorite type of food is and attach a nice little note telling them why it is being given to them. I like to give vegan treats from Cassie’s Sweetz!

Cassie's Sweetz

Bonus: to really make this fun you can tell them thank you in 26 different languages.

One of my most memorable lessons in having a grateful perspective came from a salmon slicer at Zabar’s in New York City. I asked how he’d been, and his response stopped me in my tracks.

“Blessed,” he said. “I go home to a warm bed. There’s food on my table. I have running water and I can take a hot shower. I am blessed.”

How powerful is that?! Just imagine how different life would be if we all adopted this attitude and passed it on to our children as well.

Wednesday Wow: 10010 My home schooled young Boys Are Coding!

PROGRAM OR BE PROGRAMMED

quEEN cITY sTAY aT hOME mOMS

Yesterday my younger sons attended their very first coding class! I didn’t know what to expect from these young guys, but they did great! The look on each of their faces was thanks enough.

I didn’t learn it until after college. Even thing, I past it over and ran to the cut and paste – ins website apps.

The reason I  introduced them to it is not just because a girlfriend invited us,to this FREE series of classes but because I wanted the middle aged boys to improve their problem solving skills. Having children that “THINK” is a BIG thing for me.  I think in life you are either a consumer- programmed or a producer……. the programmer.  And tell me, what’s wrong  with having a Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak,or a Steve Jobs in our large family?

I hear that some countries, including England, have begun to add coding to their national school curriculum, teaching children as young as 5 how to code. It’s urged to expose them to it as an additional language.

Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, and this website – they’re all made with code. (CODING EXPLAINED For BEGINNERS)

What Charlotte elementary school teaches coding???  These are the days that I am so grateful to have the opportunity to teach outside of the box. They are learning real skills! These skills include hand-crafting their  own websites, becoming a career coder or even starting a technology business. Most importantly, they will be able to understand the technology shaping their world.

There is a new business in Charlotte for educating; and that organization wants to teach you to code. Tech Talent South is a business that is now providing web development coding classes to Charlotteans. In the classes, applicants will learn to code with Ruby on Rails, Javascript and HTML/CSS. The business was started in Atlanta last year by Betsy Hauser Idilbi and Richard Simms.

Tech Talent South  is all over the US. (and Africa). And it’s steady growing. We attended the 1st class in Charlotte, NC – Courses Offered:

Code Immersion
Next Level Rails
The Graduate Program
Big Data Analytics
iOS Development
JavaScript Application Development
Intro to Web Design and Creation
Google Analytics Workshop
Free Kids Code
