I am 29 years of age and have just let my siblings move in with me to help out my mother. I have been blessed and put into a position to help out both financially and socially to my brother and sisters. They are 16 years old and two are 14 years old. So personally I have to make adjustments and quick, but God does not put anything on you that He has not prepared you for in advance.

Well, my first task is to get them into some productive roles in the community where they can learn first hand on some of there impacts as a child in their community, via church, state or some local government. This is just something for them to do durning the summer. Secondly, to get them registered for school when registration opens back up. I know what schools they will be attending, just a sort of waiting game to get that back.

I have my own aspirations to put together a Youth Foundation to help minority children gather some of life's most precious and forgotten nuggets. These nuggets were given to me when a time that our neighbors were really neighbors and when your family played a vital role in the up brining of our children... a time before cell phones, SMS, email... a time when we had to talk face to face; a time we had to be social to survive... a time when we had to go outside to play and we didn't have a big case of obesity... a time when the church played a big role and Big Mama was actually 50 or older and not 40 and under to make sure we went to church to get a good, solid foundation.

So, since times have changed and situations have become epidemic we must adapt to those changes and regroup our way of thinking to still give out those same nuggets that were given to us as youth. So at almost 30 years of age (30 come July) I have to make some adjustments...

Do you have any suggestions?

You're a great brother to step up and take care of your siblings,. You're right there are changes to come with this adjustment, because there's no longer you in your home. I applauded you for what you're doing and I KNOW you will be a great motivator in their lives. Good luck on everything you're working to achieve in your life. Continue to claim it and it will come to pass. From your reading above I think you going in the perfect direction with them already, so I have nothing to suggest. But your siblings are lucky to have a brother like you......Stay Blessed.
