Social Change

Many rich people are not capable of standing in the shoes of the middle class and the poor, because of how they are raised. Greed arises from how the wealthy raise their children. This can be the only explanation for books like Ann Coulter’s book, called Guilty, where she blames single mothers for everything from increased crime to teen pregnancy. Within my book, I discuss middle class issues, such as; education, housing, raising children, abortion, being a single mother, court reform, family law reform, being an entrepreneur, and my personal experiences of coming from a poor back ground to one where I live among the wealthy in Santa Barbara, California.
