About the Book

Children who grow up in the twenty-first century face an environment packed with roadblocks and opportunities. Adults, as mentors, educators, and leaders, must do their part to set the young on the path toward the personal reward of achievement. In Meatloaf for Breakfast, author Gerard Azzari offers a composite and compass on childhood development while providing a heartfelt, personal portrayal of living and learning in a low-income setting in the Bronx. This powerful and personal guide represents Azzari’s life experiences and reflection on delivering favorable outcomes for helping children thrive in any circumstance in any community. His viewpoints represent an amalgam of observations and experiential learning since childhood, and he presents keen insights into the value of having two parents, a family, and community mentors carefully guiding the young into adulthood. Built upon a strong base of interactions with hundreds of families living in and around a Bronx housing project, Meatloaf for Breakfast is intended to help you help children thrive. It enables you to communicate with and direct the young ones in your life to ensure they grow into loving and successful adults.
