Episode 24: Is Homeschooling the way to go?
In this episode, I share about how this season has enlightened me into adjusting to the new circumstances. Granted, now more than ever, every day is a chance to improve, grow, learn, get better, experience, and remain positive while going through the motions. I have tried my hand at homeschooling for a couple of weeks, read up tonnes on how to approach, and therefore happy to share some of the things I have picked. I am not an educator, therefore, please do your own research if you want to pick this up homeschool for your family, but with the pivoting and adjusting we have to do post-pandemic, I foresee this being one of the most popular approaches to education.

Episode 23: Parenting during stressful times
As a parent or guardian, you have a responsibility of keeping not only yourself safe, but also those under your care. On today's episode, I share some tips I have gathered from research on how we can help our kids cope with stress better, but also this episode seeks to bring to the attention of us as parents that children do have emotions and our acknowledgment of this and knowing what to do when they do express the different emotions, helps us to raise healthier more balanced children. I am no psychologist neither have I have been formally trained in dealing with the mind, but I am a parent, have read and consulted within my networks and the tips here are basically social skills we could employ to have a less stressful family life. Please feel free to weigh in and share your thoughts and experiences as well.

Episode 19 - Everyone has a story- Here is a glimpse of mine
This is the International Women's month and I am taking advantage of that to intentionally reflect and acknowledge the women who have walked with me in my journey. As I was reflecting, I remembered how growing up I seemed to face a lot of 'hard' things, challenges so to speak and nothing came easy or at first glance. Looking back though, I feel that every challenge, bump ,opportunity that came my way led to charting the career path that I talk of today and overall to me becoming the person I am today. I am a strong believer in everyone having and owning their story and using their lessons to grow and become a better version of themselves. What is your story and what do you learn from it...

What I wish I was taught in school
In this episode, I indulged some of my friends by running a one-question survey to tell me some of those things they wish were taught in school to better prepare students for the realities of life after school. This came as a backdrop of the just-released primary certificate exams and the pressure most kids were under to score high grades. I also talk about the importance of parents not imposing their egos/dreams on their kids, and to be true to themselves and recognize that mostly the pressure we pass down on our kids to perform is mostly for us and how we view this as a key thing or measure of success. I also catch you on some happenings in the recent past that do not just make sense and my head and heart cant quite a process - some downs that life serves which can be so hard to take in, but we have to remain strong.

Welcome to this week's episode where I recount an incidence when an intrusive question was directed at me in public.

Is there a time someone made such remarks and how did they affect you? Let's keep sharing on the podcast comment section as well as the on IG https://www.instagram.com/lifenpurposepodcast/
