7 tips for parents with children in boarding house

0 Shares

Good day everyone! So the video of the young man who was abused and starved in boarding house has been trending and I do hope that his parents do all they can to help him recover from the trauma. Truth be told I am not a fan of boarding house, but I am not totally against it either…this is because sometimes parents don’t have other options and a good boarding facility is not without its benefits. I would rather a child is in a good boarding house than totally unsupervised at home. However, I would rather children stay home till […]

Guest Post: “I was once a girl child ” by Enene Ejembi

0 Shares

I was once a girl child. A nurtured, loved, protected, girl child. I wish that were the norm. I remember my teacher in primary school taking a little bit too much of a liking — an inappropriate liking, to me. I remember the day he told me I had gotten several answers wrong in our end of term examinations and wouldn’t ‘come 1st’. He said because he loved me, he wanted me to ‘come 1st’. He gave me a list of the right answers and told me to erase my wrong ones, insert the right ones and I’d be ahead. […]

So although the parent tree dies , it is replaced by baby banana plants  almost immediately. I planted just a single plant 2 years ago and […]
