A Summer with No Ice Cream
A Summer with No Ice Cream is the first book in the "Embracing Myself and My Health" series which
will explore various health and family challenges faced in many communities such as: diabetes,
childhood obesity, female breast cancer, HIV awareness, sickle cell disease, alcohol and drug addiction, and
teenage pregnancy awareness. Even though these topics might seem a bit overwhelming, they are very much
a part of the lives of many families in the United States of America.

The Parent Push, Helping Your Child Succeed Through High School and Beyond
As an advisor and instructor in higher education, I have noticed that some students are more prepared than
others, some are more excited to be in college than others and some students are just not happy or excited
about anything. I have been in countless discussions about the benefits of going to college opposed to the cost
of going to college, and discussions about why even go to college at all? Why not encourage our children to
become interested in jobs such as electrician, plumber, and other blue collar jobs? Should I push my child to be on the honor roll? Should I encourage a gap year?
