  1. Hi Carl, it was nice to see and talk with you the other day. Thanks for sending me the site info. Its great!!! You guys have been doing a lot of work. I would like to learn and include some of your concepts with our youth, and also share some of mine with you. The parenting issue at the age 7 is ideal. Unfortunately there are lots of single parents with teens already, and parents who consider their kids as a burden and don’t love or want them. Hani family, foster families, uncles, and men and women in the community need to step up when needed. I see you have. I have kids at school with a dad/mom in jail, and a mom who has a new boyfriend that doesn’t like the kids. School staff have embraced him and he is moving in the right direction. Lots of kids go to church also. We are not allow to talk about religion in school. But we can say God in a general sense. I love you Carl for being a asset to this issue, your passion and sencerity is real. More Blessings, Moon

    1. Hi Moon:

      Thank you for all you do and for sharing with us the challenges in our community.

      We feel there’s no need to grumble about our system; it’s time to help the children though encouraged parenting. The stories you share are true and not understood by most. We need to be wise and “start at home” to prevent more poor examples that continue to enable the way we live.

      With faith we will bring the full potential of human existence to glory, in humanities, arts, sciences. “All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree”. Albert Einstein

      You are welcome to use any material here without permission; it’s for our children’s future. If you would like to help or if I can assist, just call. We are planting good seed with parents who have children under seven years of age.

      Keep up your good work helping produce digital media for teachers and students.

      Aloha and blessings to you Mr. Brown,

      Carl and Amy
