Twenty-Year Old Talks About How Good Parenting Can Make A Difference

Jan. 22, 2007 – Katy, Texas – Jeremy Jjemba is determined to make a difference in his generation. His book Parents Be Aware (The Storm is Coming), discusses the significance of parental influence, leadership and bridging the communication gap between parents and their children.

His goal is to educate parents about their children’s choices, and tell them how they can be a part of every decision. “Most of my close friends that were parented right had something going for them in life. All of their success evolved from a close relationship with their parents,” he said.

This book discusses the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse among the youth and other dangers parents should know about. Although his book’s target audience is parents, he aims to motivate young people to achieve their dreams, without exceeding their limits.

“It is up to you to make life want you want it to be. You can spend your twenties getting high and drinking every night. Or you can start to chase the dreams that you always wanted to accomplish in life.”

If we can draw from his courage and inspiring example, then perhaps we too can make a difference.
