A mother has magic power, the kind that can throw her kids out of the dungeon of regrets, doubts, into the blasting height of success.
I want to marry someone like my mother, he says, he says that because he has been groomed by a mother that possesses rare character, a mother that he has been with all his years and have no reason not want her kind of person as a WIFE.
What kind of relationship do you have with your kids?
is it the one that will make them great or break them in the society at large?
PETER lost his dad before he could write with a PEN. His mum became his dad, mum and best friend. He only saw his father’s picture so he cannot say anything about his dad.
“My mum always ask me questions on how my day went, she was so much into me growing as a child . She goes like this:
Hope you didn’t fight? Hope they didn’t flog you? Hope you didn’t make noise in class today?
She ask questions about everything and she will never judge me when I make mistake. She rather bring the conversation back, after I have told her everything. She will say:
“That thing that you did that day is not good ooo, you should have ignored him or leave that place at the moment. You would have reported to the teacher, you would have said no or stuff”
My mum has such a graceful way of bringing out information from me and she has a way of letting me understand the consequences of my actions.

Peter’s mum’s style of parenting might not be your style, her way of having conversation with her kids might be same as your way of talking or training your kids but… When there is little or big gap in communication with your kids, anything can go wrong in terms of training them( boys and girls), Especially the boys.
Both your boys and girls have different ways of communicating and assimilating information. The way you talk to each of them other differs, the way you treat each of them matters, so do not get frustrated or angry when they don’t understand you at the same time.
Know your child, understand that the way you train them differs.
… As your boys and girls are different, so each child behaves differently.
… Know your children’s friends
… Set rules in your house
… Respect your children especially the teenagers, they have opinions too.
… Do not put them down
… Make promises you can fulfil – do not make a promise in a hurry.
… Make time for your children
… Never crush your children’s DREAMS just because you do not have the faith to believe it.
Train them to have their own minds too.
Remember that the family is the smallest unit of the society, if anything goes wrong to that smallest unit, the largest unit suffers.
