Ryan Cameron hosted a conversation with some very important people about some very serious problems
It happened at Atlanta City Hall earlier this week when V-103 and WAOK got together with Mayor Kasim Reed, Interim Police Chief George Turner and Charlene Braud the Director of Recreation for the city of Atlanta to talk about teen violence. More than 200 people, many of them children were in the audience in the old Council Chamber when the conversation began. The event also aired simultaneously on both stations and was streamed live over V103webmag.com.
One of the suggestions heard over and over again was echoed by interim Police Chief George Turner: adults must find ways to get young people to respect themselves by letting them know that they are important.
V-103 and WAOK are committed to putting together a list of resources for parents to help deal with unruly and out of control teens. Maybe you just need to know where the closest Recreation center is located so your child can go shoot some hoops or pick up a new hobby. That list will be coming very soon. Since you know that it takes a village to raise a child, if you know of any resources that may help in this effort please email the info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ryan Cameron said it best at the end of the program…
Let’s teach our young people to Respect Yourself…and Respect the A.
