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.

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.

Warning Signs Look out!

It was a Friday evening in the month of May, after a very busy week, I was actually looking forward to sleeping off in hubby's arms while watching whatever he had for us to see that evening little did I know the day had its own plans.

I heard that sound as I drove off from the office but it sounded like a drag from the tires and not from  the car itself.  I wound up for a while for some AC, even though I am not such an Ac person and also  decided to try the Eko Hotel route home that evening. My colleague who took me home some days back took that route a few times and it seemed okay. As we approached the roundabout I heard that sound again, this time I wound down a bit to listen properly. I was convinced it was this big black jeep beside me and so I continued.

How to start your own Crèche and Daycare service business

Providing day care for children is a huge responsibility. A crèche and daycare service provides entrepreneurs with an opportunity to pursue a socially conscious, challenging and fulfilling business. If this is an area you are passionate about and would like to build a business around it, here are a few tips you’ll need to transform this idea into a real-life, profitable business.   

Step 1: Find out what the law requires

Some African countries may have laws which regulate crèches and day care services. These laws may require day care operators to be licensed or certified by a relevant government authority or professional association.

Most of these laws and regulations have become necessary to discourage and punish any form of child abuse. As a result, the strict guidelines may often increase the cost of running a day care service business.

How to Pray Big for Your Child

Mariah approached the beginning of middle school as a happy, normal sixth grader. She was a good student, she would be attending her neighborhood school with her best girlfriends, and she was excited about the new adventure. But that all changed on the first day of school. Mariah basically experienced the equivalent of a panic attack. She started crying uncontrollably and inconsolably. Tragically, the scene was repeated almost every day of that school year. Her mother would drive her to school but was often unable to get Mariah out of the car. Other days, Mariah would make a brave attempt to face her school fears, only to spend most of the day in the counselor’s office or crying at her desk. Her new adventure had turned into a nightmare.
