About the Book

We have a choice in how we raise our children. Not only that, but we have a responsibility to them. In Tomorrow’s Children, author Dr. Mahalia A. Hines, affectionately known as Mama Hines, a distinguished educator with more than three decades of experience, offers a profound and insightful manual. Drawing from her rich background as both a parent and educator, Hines provides a compelling guide for parents and teachers navigating the complexities of raising children in an era dominated by advancing technology.

She reflects on her personal experiences while amalgamating timeless, “old school” methods with essential skills required to preserve our humanity in the face of technological ascent. Tomorrow’s Children:

• explores crucial themes such as self-love in an age dominated by social media; 
• advocates for a return to fundamental values, urging parents to prioritize authentic human connections over digital interactions;
• delves into practical examples, encouraging simple yet powerful gestures like acknowledging others in shared spaces and fostering gratitude for those who serve us; and
• provides a roadmap for cultivating love, compassion, and light in the upbringing of our children, ensuring they’re equipped with the interpersonal skills necessary for a balanced and humane future.

Mama Hines offers a heartfelt call to action in this handbook for parents, teachers, and caregivers navigating the challenges of a tech-centric society. Filled with personal stories, insights, strategies, and activities, it provides valuable tools for those impacting the lives of tomorrow’s leaders and presents a roadmap for fostering love, empathy, and gratitude in future generations.
