Why you should spend more time with your kids

There’s an old saying that says “families that play together, stay together”. Spending quality time with our families is important for building healthy relationships. It builds confidence, teaches children about interacting with others, and creates wonderful memories that last a lifetime. 

Family time is crucial to kids, enabling them to build confidence,  strong emotional bond between family members, improves communication skills, better performance in school, and reduced behavioural issues. Family fun times also create memories built on fun, laughter, and happiness.

It’s the longest holiday in the school calendar and lots of kids are at home, this is a great opportunity for parents to bond with the children even more. Perhaps consider taking some time off work to spend some time with the kids. Not yet convinced?

How to choose a School for Your Child

Being a parent involves making critical decisions, and one of them is deciding what school your kids attend. There are many schools out there, but not all are suitable for your child. When many parents are selecting schools, the basic and most common factors people consider are school fees and proximity to homes. However, these factors are not enough to help you make the best decision. Here are 9 smart factors to consider when selecting a school for your kids:

1.Accreditation Status

There are many schools around that are not accredited. One key indicator to know if a school is accredited or not is if its students are required to write external examinations in other schools. Do not be carried away by structures and aesthetics, you should confirm the accreditation status of a school before you enroll your child.

How I became a Single Mom

Single mom, motherhood,

Kunle and I met at Ndidi’s wedding. We struck it off almost immediately. I was the friend Ndidi could trust to pick up the cash she would be sprayed on the D-day and Kunle was Peter’s.  Ndidi’s now-husband.  You know that friend that you need to be everywhere but not to be part of the bridesmaids or Groom’s men. Yeah, that was Kunle and I for Ndidi and Peter.

Kunle had bent over to hear what Peter was saying to him on the dancing floor and I was just pulling myself up from the floor where I had been picking money when I hit Kunle with my head. Wow, the force caused his lower lip to get caught up in-between his teeth and bled slightly.

Stop Talking

Credit alert!  Your account has been credited with the sum of xxxx. I looked closely to see the name of the sender, it was from Bem, my husband! Wow! What happened? It wasn't my birthday or the kids'. Pardon my reaction, it's been a while my husband sent me money, this sum of money especially. That reminds me, I have also noticed some changes lately. Our spare room has been much tidier than ever, shoes in their rack, clothes either hung or neatly folded in the wardrobe, no litter on the floor, toilet clean, etc. Hmmmm...what could be going on? Is Bem cheating? Did another woman come into my home in my absence to do all that work? It doesn't stop there, Bem has changed in other ways too. He gets to do things swifter than before I don't get to talk so much before he gets things done around the house. The other day, I walked into the garage and noticed the whole place was lit.

7 Reasons to Eat Family Dinner Together

Over the last 20 years, dozens of studies have confirmed what parents have known intuitively for a long time: Sitting down for a nightly dinner is good for the spirit, the brain, and the body. Research shows that shared meals are tied to many teenage behaviors that parents pray for: reduced rates of substance abuse, eating disorders and depression; and higher grade point averages and self-esteem. For young children, conversation at the table is a bigger vocabulary booster than reading aloud to them.
