Hello Aunty Eya, please help me ask blog readers in your group. This question has been bothering me ever since my daughter informed us that she wants to attend prom.

Man allegedly beats son to death for stealing doughnuts

Here’s how a psychologist shared the news on Social Media:
What a cruel world. This week Tuesday, between the hours of 8 to 9 am. I saw a crowd of people around my vicinity gathered by this little boy, so I stopped by and inquired what happened.
They told me this little boy on his way to school, stole doughnut from a shop. The people whom he stole the doughnut even gave him more of it and mineral and asked him to go. They all claimed that his father and step-mum have the habit of

Sickening Story of How School Bus Driver Tried To Kidnap Pupils In the Bus

If Nigerian parents will have to start sleeping with one eye open after putting kids in a school bus then na real wa! for Nigeria. What could be worse abeg? You See this life? While the dad was out there working selflessly for kids he didn't know, God sent Angels to watch over his own kids and help them. We should never be weary of doing good, never worry about the fact that you work selflessly and no one recognizes or acknowledges you, just remind yourself all the time, that God's reward is better and more preferable. When he wants to bless or help anyone, he doesn't need man's help to do that.
 A Nigerian lady, Anazodo Caroline shared this shocking story on her wall to save lives. She says:

'Two days ago, my nieces, the "Igwe girls", were picked from the house to school as usual. The school bus driver who has been driving for the school for 4 years, accompanied by a school teacher picked them and proceeded to the next location to pick other kids for school which is typical.'
On getting to the home of the other kids, the teacher had to go In to get the kids from their apartment (which I wonder why the bus was accompanied by just 1 teacher, leaving kids with the driver, but again, who knows the heart of man). 
Guess what? After the teacher left to bring the other kids to join my nieces to school, before she got back, the driver had sped off with my nieces already. The teacher came out with the other kids and the bus, driver and my little girls were no where to be found. 
He switched off his phone while the innocent girls had no idea what was going on. I mean, what do

Below is what a pediatrician wrote to Nigerian parents fond of rushing to give palm oil as first aid whenever a child ingests poisonous substances. Do you know that giving ordinary water or milk is better than palm oil? Read below...
I received a call on Thursday from an ATP member.....that's not unusual......"We are being referred to LUTH from General Hospital....a little boy".....As usual my response "Yes bring the child...straight to our CHER.....I am not in CHER but let me know when you get there" I usually will try and pass through to know what is going on!
Thursday was extremely busy....our final year medical students were doing their clinical exams.....We did not finish until 6pm! Tired and worn out....then had to briefly attend the wake-keeping ceremony of one of my friends and colleague Paediatrician's mother.....I completely forgot about the child till today.
When I remembered, I called to know how far.....I knew she did not end up in LUTH because

The best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway - Church Leader argued

A counselor and elder of the church of Pentecost, New Achimota District in Ghana, Mr Nii Armah Hammond, has admonished stakeholders to allow teenagers who can’t control their libido to be allowed to practice safe s*x.

The respectable church leader, was speaking on Ahotor fm during a program aimed at educating the youth.

Hammond believes that the best means of preventing teenage pregnancy and its associated complications is through protected s*x. As he puts it, the stigma associated with teenage pregnancy affect the family concern long after the act and in most cases making the products of such pregnancy liabilities for the nation.

Telling the youth to abstain is a failed strategy, as they will have it anyway, he argued, so the best way to prevent teen pregnancy is to educate them on the use of condoms.

*Hmmm, do you agree? 
For me, I can't imagine myself teaching my child how to practice safe sex or how to wear a condom. I know I taught the girls how to wear sanitary pads, demonstrated with underpants and some pads, also taught how to properly dispose used pads. I did that happily and

The children were falling sick often and on, so we decided to go to the hospital for test and there two them were tested SS. It was very disheartening moment of our lives,  we did our own test I and DH this time it was As+As=SS which was a mistake from the first laboratory before marriage.   
We had wanted to sue the laboratory but will that correct the lives of our children, we then faced God and have been praying for God's healing using Jeremiah 30:17, Psalm 107:20, Exodus 23:25 giving them anointing oil and communion, after some times the crises stopped for almost a year,   
We went to the same laboratory for test and they were AA, we went to church and shared our testimony. I later conceived my last child which now a girl,  I told

The reason most parents give young children phones is to keep in touch at all times. Some parents give phones to kids from when they are 8 years old, others wait until these kids are teenagers. For my family, we wait until Secondary School. In Primary School, you use mummy's phone for all communications with friends and classmates. For some families, the child has to get to Senior Secondary School before owning a phone, for some families, getting University Admission or any
