 2. *Statement:* Why don’t you try this option?

– *Wrong response:* Why is it that you always find fault with what I do?

2 minutes for Sexy seductress! πŸ€—

MARRIAGE…….He was having his evening beverage
That’s when she joined him.
“Hi there handsome, you’re looking good. So fine I can eat you up” she said sitting down.
“I thought we agreed to keep away from each other? I am a married man” he told her.
” Come on. I won’t bite. You can’t resist me, no man can” she said.

“I am a married man” he told her.

“Fight all you want, but soon I will have you. I am way better than your wife” she told him.

“You are nothing compared to my wife” he told her off.
“Really? All this body. All these curves. All these sweetness. I bet your wife is not as good in bed as I am” she told him unbuttoning the top button of her blouse to reveal her cleavage, then lifting up her skirt, just a bit.

“If I was a lustful and unfaithful man, all that would move me. But I am too grown to be enticed by what you’re showing off. I am a grown man, you think all that consumes my mind is sex? And for your information, my wife is actually great in bed” he told her.

“How will you know unless you do me. Try me tonight. Let’s drive in your black car to a romantic hotel, I promise you a night you will never forget” she told him.

“You know what you are? You are lazy? A lazy woman” he told her, then took a sip of his beverage.
“How dare you call me lazy?! I am a high flying educated woman. Any man would give anything to have me” she said.

“Fair enough. But would you give anything to make a man?” He asked.

“What do you mean?” She questioned.

“You look at me and find me attractive. Yet you disrespect the woman behind who I am, you want me to cheat on my wife, the woman behind my attractiveness” said he.

He drank a sip and continued, “My wife is responsible for the man in me that you want today. When I had little, my wife believed in me. These suits you see me wearing, are my wife’s idea. I ask for her advice on what to wear. 

My success has come to pass because she prays for me and puts up with my demanding work hours. She corrects me and moulds me and that has moulded my character. 
The Range Rover you see me outside driving that you fancy, I bought that with my wife. She and I invested to buy our house. I look attractive and pleasant, because she treats me well and gives me peace. 

And now you want to have the man that she made out of me and dishonour her? You want to have the man that she has built for years? You are lazy?”
Silence.

“I see you turning down the single men who want you and yet you want me, a man that another woman has made? No, it doesn’t work like that. 
Find your own single man, believe in him, pray for him, support him, nurture him and mould him to be the attractive man you want him to be. 

You women have a nurturing and helping gift. Activate your gift. My wife has been busy building me and I will not leave her for a woman who has nothing to offer, but her sexiness. 
So if you may excuse me, I need to drive home and take my wife on a date. She deserves the best” he said as he stood up and drank a last sip.
He reached in his wallet and placed N2,000 on the table.

“Have yourself a drink as you think about your life and how you’ll stop being lazy and find a single man you can build. My generous wife and I have paid for the drink” he said.

He walked away as she looked on.
“I need to find my own husband” she thought to herself.
*This is recommended therapy for all married men* πŸ™ and singles too self-centered to think beyond themselves and their physical endowments.

Newest Best-practice Tips for Parents & adult Children

To all parents and even grandparents, as well as teachers, here are some unnbelievably simple Child Psychology and Behavioral Management parenting ideas that work.πŸ‘‡ 

*1. Children need a minimum of eight touches during a day to feel connected to a parent.*

If they’re going through a particularly challenging time, it’s a minimum of 12 a day. This doesn’t have to be a big deal; it could be the straightening of a collar, a pat on the shoulder or a simple hug.
*2. Each day, children need one meaningful eye-to-eye conversation with a parent.*

It is especially important for babies to have that eye contact, but children of all ages need us to slow down and look them in the eyes.

*3. There are nine minutes during the day that have the greatest impact on a child:* the first three minutes right after they wake up, the three minutes after they come home from school and the last three minutes of the day before they go to bed. We need to make those moments special and help our children feel loved.
This is simple, right? Nothing really earth-shattering here.

Try it..

 1⃣ Whenever u feel like scolding or beating your child, take a deep breath, or count 1-10 and then act.

2⃣ Let’s ask them to study their favorite subject on their own..
3⃣ Send them to one exam without studying at all..

4⃣ Remember what our kids are learning in 5th std is taught to 7th std abroad..

5⃣ Lets keep our kids out of unwanted competition.

6⃣ 80% of what kids are learning ,won’t be useful to them in future..

7⃣ Our kids can really afford to do whatever they want to do in future.

8⃣ Higher degrees don’t guarantee success and happiness..
9⃣ Not all the highly educated people do well professionally. And not all who do well professionally are the happiest ones..

πŸ”Ÿ Kids are always in a party mood.. don’t spoil their childhood. Support and let them be what they want to be. πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ

Pass this on to as many teachers and parents as u can.. And change the way we look at our kids and their future.

INVESTORS IN DEATH!
Yes. That is what so many people are. Sad. But very real and very wrong. 
The other day a patient was brought to the hospital, a 59 year old, very pale with fast breathing. Urgent tests and scan showed severe anaemia and massive pleural effusion. The man needed blood ASAP with chest tube for drainage of the effusion. He was brought by his son and his brother. So when they found out that a pint of blood costs #8,000 they requested for discharge. No money to get the blood was the reason. 

Two days later he died. A month later a ”befitting” burial was conducted, hundreds of thousands of Naira spent. This scenario plays out regularly in our hospitals. Investors in death!

Your mother or brother is sick and you live in Lagos, UK or America. If you are nice you send a paltry sum. Few days later they call you he/she is more serious. You are busy. A week later they tell you it’s getting worse, you can’t get off duty. Then they call you he/she is dead and you enter the next available flight home to arrange for the burial. Investors in death! 

Your mum/dad never drove a car all their lives (despite the fact that you can afford one) and then they die and they ride in Hummer ambulance to their burial. Investors in death. 
Your aged parents live in ramshackle house with no amenities. Then they die and like a witch’s trick a grand house erupts in 3 months. Investors in death!
Note that everything you do at burial you do for yourself. 

You kill cows? the dead does not partake in it. Souvenirs? they don’t take one to judgement seat. All the dancers, asoebi and cooling vans, they don’t notice. All is for your personal glory. 

What is a befitting burial without a befitting life? 

It is better to give someone a chicken in life than to bring a cow to their burial.
I think we invest too much in death. Sometimes the living lose their source of livelihood for burials. All is vanity.
This is one thing our people need to change!
