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.
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.
Naturally, it is the desire of every parent or guardian to give their children the best possible start in life. One of the best ways to build a foundation for a secure future is through a sound education. Education opens doors to many opportunities and is a necessity in today’s global economy. For the vast majority of people, funding your children’s education ranks as one of the largest expenses you will ever face and it must thus be carefully planned for.

Dear fellow moms,
Hope you all are doing well and your little ones are thriving too. I am writing to you all to let you know that I am withdrawing myself from the competitive parenting race. I quit, right at the starting point and would no longer be running the race with you. I accept that I am a bit nervous for you all might judge me and my child for quitting, and what more might label us as losers too. But before you jump to it, would you please spare a few minutes to read this until the end? It's a tad bit long but then I wanted to make my point and had a lot to vent out!
Just yesterday, we celebrated teachers and their great impact in our lives. But do we sometimes wonder what will happen if we woke up one day, and discovered there are no more teachers? As the population of the world increases, It is expected that the education system should also expand to cater for the rapid growth, which impacts on the ration of teacher to student. But is that the case? Please read this post below, and let's hear your thoughts.........
My heart broke as I listened to two wonderful and brave ladies share their story on ELTV a few days back on sexual abuse. While a part of me was happy for them because they had overcome their past and gone on to become successful, my heart broke as I listened to Unfortunately, we hear these things all the time to the point that it is almost the norm When is this going to stop? My short answer? Not any time soon…
As we celebrate our teachers today, I remember two remarkable teachers who made an impact in my life. Do not get me wrong, I have been blessed with great teachers, all of whom time and space would fail me to talk about in this post. Today I’d like to celebrate two of my great teachers.
One was Mrs. Doregos, as we fondly called her. Mrs. Doregos was my first encounter of what we call ‘Britico’ training in my part of the world ‘Britico’ means British (lol).
