RAISING OUR SONS TO BE HUSBAND MATERIAL

Image
We have read, and heard so many things said about how we women, should keep our husbands happy, so that our marriages will last. So, many write-ups have gone on how to have a successful marriage and sadly, these write-ups have always laid the greater responsibility of a happy home on the wives/women folk! Sadly, yours truly has equally made her own contributions in that directions.

These have all contributed in making the man look like he totally does not have a part in making his marriage work! Our parents raised up men who had little or no instruction on how to keep their homes, how to make

their wives happy etc.! While I do not deny that its important to make the head of the home happy, its most important if the two work together to seek each other’s happiness.

So, this “patrachial” society end up raising men who can almost not function in a home/marriage, men that think that making money alone can keep/make a home, men who put the sole responsibility of raising children on the wife …

HOW TO RECOGNIZE MY DEPRESSION AND TIPS TO HELP ME

Image
When you feel sad for a long period of time,  you fall deep into that pit of sadness that seem unending. You feel so tired and uninterested in activities and things that used to be fun. Depression is a mental disorder that can be helped if you recognize it fast and visit a hospital. There are medications (drugs) for depression and taking them doesn't mean that you are a mad woman. It means that you recognize that just as the eyes and other body parts fall sick and get treated, mentally too, we can break down and fall sick and will need some medications to help just the way we need paracetamol for body aches and pains.

Depression, if left untreated, unattended to. If ignored may not necessarily kill you or someone but can lead you

HONESTLY, I WISH I WASN'T A WORKING MUM

Image
When I was a little kid growing up in the North, my mom didn’t work outside of the home. Instead, she stayed home with me and my sisters, playing with us and cooking every meal we ever wanted to eat, teaching us things, reading the yellow hard cover "my book of bible stories' with us and prying along, caring for us, and when we got older she dusted her certificate and went back to work as a staff nurse at a hospital. She would “go back to work” eventually, but while we were small, she was a full-time parent. When I was preparing to have my own child, I wasn’t sure if that was something that I wanted or not. Ultimately, the financial realities of my working class family meant that it wasn’t really a decision I had to make, because my family needed me to be working to sustain us in this economy. And to be honest, being with my son 24/7 and having nothing else that I hadto do during the lengthy postpartum period made me feel antsy and weird. When I started working, and especiall…

Tips For 2016 as three hundred naira exchanges for a dollar

By now, it should be clear to all of us that this year will be a difficult one and to survive it, you just have to start planning from Day one.
Be prepared to let go of some things and spend only when absolutely necessary. If you have saved money, try not to touch it quickly.
Avoid capital projects in the next few months until you are certain of replenishing your bank accounts.
Avoid social travels that bring no added income.
If attending a burial, wedding, naming ceremony, marriage anniversary will eat into your savings, avoid them. You would be called names, accept the name calling but understand that these same
people will call you worse names if you have to borrow from them to feed your family.

Talk to your friends who are working not to bother asking

Should People Take Off Shoes At Your Doorstep?

Image
Shoes are seen at doorsteps, beside footmats almost everywhere one visits. Some shiny, dirty, unpolished, with tiny dog poop, with some careless driver's cough phlegm or mucus, with some mud, stepped on some roadside leftovers... Inside the living room some people are seen still wearing their well buckled shoes while in some cases, children and domestic staff like drivers and gatemen plus househelp are barefooted.

In Canada for example, people must wear their shoes at all times whether they are guests visiting or in their homes.

I have a few experiences where I leave my shoes outside only to be made a little uncomfortable by dust or sand on the floor or carpet.

Whether it be
slippers, bata sandals or any type of shoe, I am one person that doesn't like to take off my shoes unless
