Preserving Childlikeness in Children

An amazing Ted Talk by 12-year old Adora Svitak titled What Adults Can Learn from Kids praises the virtues of childlikeness pointing out those behaviours in children that even we adults could learn from. There is profound truth in her words and I want to harp on those words today as I encourage you to help your child to preserve his or her childlikeness.

Why Put a Lid on Your Dreams?

Sometimes it is tempting to think that one’s location in life can affect the quality and size of dreams a person can have. For example, how can you dream of making a flying car when you are from a country where even toothpicks are still largely imported.

Everything Rises and Falls on Leadership

I will never understand why Nigerians create four lanes of cars all facing one direction on a two-lane road thus blocking all oncoming traffic yet expecting to go through quickly. We all end up stuck in a place and no one budges until some traffic warden shows up.

Creative Left Brains

Have you ever met someone who practiced his science like it is an art; an engineer who draws his technical diagrams with the finesse on an artist? In a world where we are quick to classify people as being largely left brained or right brained, creative left brains prove the point that it is possible to be creative at whatever you do.

The Favourite Parent Syndrome

She knew she really should take the toy away from Joke but the girl was having so much fun playing that the instant cry she would let out if the toy was taken would be nothing short of deafening. Why trouble her so? Let her enjoy the toy for a few more minutes after all Joke can always do the chore she had asked her to do over an hour ago some other time or even some other day, Mother thought.

Change Begins With Education

Overtime we have witnessed the deterioration of schools in our country, government schools in particular. It is very embarrassing to see the state of schools in some communities yet we have a number of people representing these communities at various levels of government in this country; and these government officials are just a few persons out of the large number of people who can lend a voice to the worthy cause of putting these schools back in shape.

Raising a Financially Literate Family

It is not uncommon to find families who were once living comfortably in a nice house, driving a nice car or two, shopping in the city malls, and children attending good private schools falling into penury due to certain events. While the events that may lead to this are many and varied, for the purpose of this article, I will focus on financial mismanagement as the cause of this sad turn of events.

The Education is Clear

Have you ever met someone who is intelligent yet illiterate? I have, and how you know they are intelligent is by the way they conduct themselves, and carry on useful conversations with the level of English that they speak. This intelligence shows in their neat appearance, the way they interact with others, and in the thoughts and ideas they share with you. In that moment, you know that if this one was opportune to have formal education, they would do much better.

Plagues of The Nigerian Workforce

I hear people complain a lot about the quality of the workforce in Nigeria. Stories abound of graduates who cannot write a job application letter; cannot communicate fluently in English; cannot think on their feet to proffer solutions to problems on the job; cannot innovate, improvise, or adapt in a bid to tackle challenges.
