I heard my son read out this poem below over the weekend, and I found it quite interesting, you know. All the more interesting is the fact that this certain ‘Mr Nobody’ poem was written by An Anonymous Writer – well by Mr Nobody himself! Wow!I don’t know if you have that certain Mr Nobody in your home too? The one who always seems to be guilty of all the ‘crimes’ around the house? Well, […]

“This is the last in our series on Handling Misbehavior in Kids…How is Willful Misbehavior different from the initial two?”
“It looks like life will be easier if you walk away, but it may not. Just hang in there. Tomorrow will be alright.”
From our previous post on Handling Misbehavior, we established the three groups of misbehavior in kids. We also discovered that not all misbehavior should be rewarded with punishment. In this post, we look at another type of misbehavior – misbehavior that stems out of selfishness.
“…Typically, parents often believe that once a child misbehaves, that child deserves to be punished.
But, should every misbehavior of a child be followed by punishment?”
Do you feel as if your mornings are usually a race against the clock? Do you spend half your mornings screaming and rushing through everything?

“A Checklist as you prepare for your newborn…”
Sometimes as parents, we want to leave our kids to chance, or to some ‘other person’ to be taught about some issues of life. In our present times when Sex has been trivialized and made so cheap, it becomes an uphill task trying to teach our children the importance of sexual purity.
“If you consider the career milestones, social dexterity, and entrepreneurial escapades your mates or at least women are making in the society and world at large, it may just make you feel insignificant and look like you are not doing much. But you are. There are seasons in life, some are busy, some are quiet. Just recognize which you are in…”
“We can’t be everywhere at the same time, I am sure most mothers would wish they could be with their kids to monitor them every step of the way…”
Do you wonder why it seems as if your kids’ ears are blocked when you give them instructions? When others speak to them, they are quick to respond. When mom issues an instruction, the ears suddenly become blocked. I am sure you identify with this certain character trait in your child.
“No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.” – Unknown It’s a new month already! And in fact this new month is already rolling by. If the fact that we’re in February doesn’t wake you up, what will?
“When we hear the story of the Prodigal Son, or the Lost Son in the Bible, as some refer to him as, we may not have realized that it is a story rich in parenting principles. I’ll just like to share a few I have discovered with you…”
“Do Not Handicap Your Children By Making Their Life Easy…”
“New School sessions in Nigeria usually start in September. And if your child is moving to a New School, you may want to seriously start your search…”

Sometimes, one may appear to be an uncaring person, neighbor or friend. I like to consider that a friend may be busy, overwhelmed, and that my phone call or visit at that time may just add to their feeling of being overwhelmed. So, your friend just had a baby! You want to be the good neighbor or friend, and you just keep calling and calling and…more calling. Mothers with newborns will let you know that […]
What’s Your opinion on this age long debate? Are Girls Really easier than boys? You can take the poll at the end of this post. Whether we like to believe it or not, there are certain stereotypes associated with parenting boys and girls. And more often than not, most parents find themselves seeing those stereotypes manifesting in their children. We agree that not every child will follow the norm, but there are certain similarities that […]
