When Parents Forget Parenting

When Parents Forget Parenting
There was a video that trended in my home country Nigeria during the week.

As it would turn out, the governor of his state loved his negotiating skills and said he was inspired by the video “because of the deeper meaning it conveys,” urging residents to “calm down.” during this Corona times.

After my Wife and I fought

As part of our plan for growth this year, one of the decisions my wife and I made was to go for counseling. Our reason was pretty simple; we wanted to deepen of relationship and marriage experience.

As things happen, my wife and I had one of those fights couples have about 2 days before one of our sessions.
