Children are like Oranges & Apples- Don’t Compare Them!

by Oluseye Igbafe

Oranges and apples are probably the most popular fruits in the world. They are both fruits, yet very different. Children are like oranges and apples (or if you have many children- oranges, apples, banana, grapes, etc). 
Every child is different; they have their individual strengths, weaknesses, likes, dislikes, etc; and no matter how similar they seem they are different. That is what makes them unique. Comparing them with one other is doing them a disservice. That oranges and apples are different doesn’t mean one is superior to the other. You need to recognize that oranges can never be apples.
Children develop at different rates, learn and assimilate at different rates. Some are fast; some are average while some are late bloomers.  Comparing your child with others is therefore unnecessary.
Children also have different talents, strengths and interests; your role is to help your children to discover their own strengths. Rather than focusing on what others are doing or not…

Why All Men Should be Feminists

by Oluseye Igbafe
"You are a feminist!" my colleague flung at me.
I use the word "flung" because if you didn't know the meaning of the word "Feminism", the look on his face would have made you think it's a disease like Syphillis or something equally deadly.
"Yes I am and I believe every man should promote Feminism" I replied "Seriously? You must be kidding, you had better move to the United States" he replied 
 The truth is I really do believe that statement. Every man should be a feminist but first what really is Feminism? This is the question every person who claims to be a feminist should answer. It's also a question everyone who is against the so called "Feminists" should also answer.

The truth is there so much controversy over who a feminist is. It's not only men who are confused even some women are confused too.
This much I know about who a feminist is not:  A feminist is not one who believes a woman is superio…

25 Cute Pet-names to Call Your Fiancée/Wife.

by Oluseye Igbafe
I recently listened to a call-in programme on radio where ladies shared the petnames given to them by their spouses; it was a very funny one! There were two groups of callers: those who had the classic names like Honey, Baby, Sweetie, Darling, etc; and a second group with very absurd ones like Tomato-Jos, Jollof-rice, Omalicha-nwa, Sugar-sugar, etc. I was like. "What???" but then, even one of my besties' pet-name is Burger (she will kill me for this). Interesting right?
While some do not like petnames, I believe it adds a certain flavour to a good relationship. Your wife had already been given a name before you met her, a petname however is a special name you choose for her. It’s a reflection of how you feel and a form of expression of your love. It’s your own term of endearment and should therefore be chosen carefully. You can choose more than one and can change it frequently.
