3BOOK“GENESEE COUNTY, Michigan — Asia Johnson is an academic achiever, star athlete and a social butterfly.

On the surface, it looks like she has it all. 

In reality, there’s nothing the 13-year-old wants more than a relationship with her father.

She says so in a new book, “Listen To Me,” which she co-wrote with a dozen other Flint-area students. In touching and heartfelt prose, the young people offer insight into the most personal experiences, along with their hopes, dreams and problems. It’s aimed at getting their parents to better understand them.”

This poetry project, organized by Recco Richardson, is an excellent example that kids are hungry to share more about their lives to improve relationships with their parents, but they often need tools and guidance to get their messages across.  Written prose is one of the many ways PlumbBrain can help facilitate communication between kids and parents, improving their relationships and interactions.
