In my house, I cook spaghetti once in a while. One Saturday morning, I was in the kitchen preparing to cook spaghetti. My six-year-old son entered the kitchen and observed what I was about to prepare. Then the following conversation occurred between us:

My boy: Mum, are you cooking spaghetti?

Me: yes

My boy: are you cooking the stew one?

Me: No

My boy: mum please cook the stew one. It is sweeter than the jollof the other day you cooked it

Me: But I want to cook it jollof

My boy: Daddy’s jollof is softer and sweeter than your own. Cook it stew and leave jollof for daddy.

My dear, I had no choice than to comply when I heard the ‘bomb’.

As parents and adults, we have kids around us and need to interact with these kids in various ways.

I am currently learning from Daddy how to cook soft and sweet jollof spaghetti…. I hope to graduate from the course over the holiday period….

    Una never see anything…Remember this lesson attracts a tuition fee. No free lesson even on Freetown. Seriously speaking, though, having a balanced and proper relationship with our children devoid of fear and intimidation will bring out the best in them and in us as their parents.

      There are no limits to kid’s inquisitiveness and curiosity. Some times I feel like “dodging” the bullets from their questions.

    You mus be prepared to answer all their questions, otherwise the exam (questions) will never end
    Children with their pure heart !
