A Story on Guns, Gang Violence, Drugs, and the Family

By: Karl A. Floyd

Mental Health Focus: Coping with Grief and Loss

Languages: English

ISBN No: 978 1 60643 155 9


There is never a good reason for youth to be in a gang, carry firearms, buy, sell, or abuse illegal drugs. Minors who abuse drugs or carry guns to look cool in front of their friends, be accepted by the group, or cope with pain expose themselves to possible incarceration, serious health risks (e.g. HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C), and life-threatening consequences. In addition, gang members and drug dealers may retaliate against one another or harm the family and friends of those who refuse to cooperate or keep their promises. In short, if you’re in a gang, GET OUT! And if you’re not, STAY OUT! And above all, please talk with your parents, teachers, and counselors regularly about day-to-da y concerns, problems and issues.

Remember, PLAY IT SAFE!

The desire to reduce pain and suffering of children and empower youth to be the best they can be is what inspired Karl A. Floyd to create his Professor Gulu stories and the Cerebrophonic music series.

With a focus on increasing youth coping skills, safety awareness, self-esteem, judgment and decision-making abilities, Professor Gulu’s learning series has become a powerful tool to help gauge youth progress towards emotional maturity. In addition, the series will help parents and guardians learn effective communication skills and develop insight and understanding on complex issues that affect youth development.

A resident of Fort Bend County, Texas, Karl lives with his wife and business partner, Ann Branch-Floyd, and develops educational and therapeutic resources that support healthy community development. He holds a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Houston, University Park, and works as a behavioral healthcare professional. Karl is a former Statewide Health Coordinating Council Member with the Governor’s Office of Boards and Commissions (2004-2010) and is licensed in Texas as a professional counselor. In addition, he is certified as a Fellow and Diplomate with the American Board of Medical Psychotherapists and Psychodiagnosticians.

  1. Alan Burns – Licensed Professional Counselor

    I think that teaching children about sensitive topics such as bullying, predators, online safety, and even simple things they need to mature such as fire safety, and how to treat peers, is more important than ever for healthy moral and social development. Engaging children is more difficult with so much information and entertainment available, and limited resources to get your children’s attention back on what they need to learn. Professor Gulu’s music and activity workbooks are a great tool for teaching your kids important lessons or getting them engaged in group activities where they can learn from each other. I recommend using Professor Gulu’s songs to help kids learn early, because they will remember songs from childhood long after a conversation is forgotten.

    The principles Professor Gulu teaches to children are highly beneficial in navigating in today’s society. The scenario of the chat room helps children and teens to recognize the dangers of unmonitored online activity. It is also a very beneficial resource for parents and guardians. The specific tips that are outlined are thoroughly age appropriate. All parents should be informed of the realities of internet predators and openly discussing it with their children. This book helps aid that discussion in an engaging and fun manner for all ages.

    Who Will Pay is easy to read a great story line, and very realistic. Although the names are fictional the situations are real. Emotions are genuine, and unfortunately these events are happening every day. A MUST READ!!!

    I am a junior high educator and I recommend the lyric book to any parent! My children absolutely love to sing along to the Professor Gulu songs and it’s great to have the lyrics so that you can see what your kids are actually saying. My 5 year olds reading fluency is also improving as he’s singing along to the lyric book.

    I downloaded the lyrics to my iBooks on my phone and also onto my children’s iPads. These catchy tunes will have your kiddos entertained and learning at the same time. Professor Gulu rocks!
