Sex, drugs and rock and roll. What more does a novel need?

Be prepared to take a trip when reading When Life Was Like a Cucumber by Greg Wyss. This trip will be unlike any one you have ever taken before. That is unless you were in your 20s, living in the late 1960s and early 1970s on the East coast, more

“Education is a powerful driver of development and one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty and improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability.” (worldbank, 2012).

As a student I was intelligent on paper but did not put my best foot forward in areas that were imperative to my future. I lived in the moment, lacked drive, and did not think about the 'big picture'. As a parent I pull from the not so pleasant parts of my life journey so that I can give my children a positive and rewarding childhood. As an adult I often wonder how did things in my life get so twisted and out of order? Why did things workout this way and not the way I had envisioned? A simple phrase explains it all... I was a lack luster individual!

I could blame everyone and everything but truth is I can't. I blame it on my mindset during that time. I was responsible for my actions and shortcomings. When I was in school I chose to half step when I should have leaped. Now that I am more mature and have a family of my own I am connecting the dots of my life so that my children do not follow a similar path.

If I knew then what I know now is a literary mentorship; a blueprint, to educate students on how to get the most out of education and to assist parents with guiding their children on the road to academic success. It covers the students' journey from elementary school to post high school listing vital information from responsibility to setting goals to budgeting . When it comes to children, this book unofficially coaches the parent on an array of subject matters ranging from the best learning strategies for the little ones to types of encouragement to the importance of support during test time for school-aged individuals. There are also links to amazing information and some inclusions to assist with organizing and prioritizing.

I can't walk in anyone's shoes, however I can help someone not to walk in mines.
