Your Children’s Healthy Habits Come From You

Parents! If you haven’t figured it out already, your kids will do what you do. We are not only their models for how adults should behave but also the guiding force that puts them on the path toward independence.

Why Pumpkins (Malenge) are bad for your child.

I know this will definitely catch you by surprise. Yes, pumpkins are not good for your child. Since time immemorial, parents have been known to pump their children with pumpkins. They get whipped up with potatoes, even in beans. Literally, even some people feed their children on pumpkins for breakfast. Pumpkins have vitamin A, very rich in the nutrient.

”My Husband Stabbed me 6 times”

A lady sent me an email last week. I read it twice with tears in my eyes. She sent it late at night. It was well polished and edited. I guessed that she had been writing it for a couple of days, making several adjustments to ensure that I got the exact message. I felt the exact pain that she and her children were going through. Every weight felt. One morning, a month ago, she reported to work as usual. She works at a cyber café. The business is in the topmost floor. The building hosts several other businesses...
