With all the shootings and violence around the world. I pray that our nation and community becomes safe again. Every day I’m mentoring or helping some parent and their children with the day to day struggles of peer pressure and self-development.
Statistics: Did you know that 1 out 2 boys got into a fight at school in 2013 and at least 35% fought 3 to 4 times. And 1 out of every 4 girls fought last year due to social conflict and quarrels over boys.
In this season I would like to be friends with positive people and a friend of God. I have never seen him before. But when good people do great things it’s a sign that he exists.
We have to take our kids back! If this audience doesn’t have any children or if their kids are all grown up? Let’s remember those parents who are still raising theirs.
I pray parents and children become better examples in public places. Also, parents lead our communities with integrity in front of those children who need us most. I’m not saying be a role model, I’m only saying know your role on earth towards kids who need our guidance best.
As I lead the next generation in my community down the road of excellence. I pray that our eyes are open and we are able to hold hands with great people like you who see a clear vision for creating a generation of road scholars and good hearted individuals that provide our communities a brighter future within our nation.
Scripture: “Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me” (Psalm 51:10)
DON’T COME HOME ANGRY AND TAKE IT OUT ON YOUR CHILDREN:
No matter how funny your money is or who made you mad at work. You must promise not to take it out on your family.
A Few Tips:
Go to the gym and exercise
Explain to your children you need some temporary space
Never whoop kids while angry
NOTE: Have a cooling down period. Get it together before you walk in the door. Breathe and think about how you want your evening to end. Then pursue best you know how to be a good parent. But try to have self-control at all times.
Have you ever needed to be rescued? Well my family did. Who could be better than a grandmother or a mother? My family knows and so can yours. The first chapter in my book titled “The Blueprint For Survival As A Single Parent”, talks about how important grandmothers are to a family. Also, why they should be honoured and loved for their parental bravery.
When my mother was pregnant with me our house burned down. She ran in one night and saved my father and siblings from burning in the fire while they were sleep.
She became our hero and everyone gives her credit for rescuing her family. Today my mother is 81 years old and is still the hero in our family since that day.
