HOW TO INSPIRE MANNERS TO YOUR CHILDREN
1. When entering the house greet your children with hugs and kisses. This should help develop their sense of love and mercy.
2. Be good to your neighbours and never backbite. Never speak ill of other drivers when on the road. Your children listen, absorb and emulate.
3. When calling your parents, encourage your children to speak to them. When visiting your parents take your children with you. The more they see you take care of your parents the more they will learn to take care of you.
4. When driving them say to school, don’t always play albums or CDs (even if my CDs!). Rather, tell them the stories yourself. This will have a greater impact – trust me!
5. Read to them a short story and even a scripture a day – it doesn’t take much time, but very impactful in creating strong bonds and wonderful memories.
6. Comb your hair, clean your teeth and wear presentable clothes even if sitting at home and not going out for the day. They need to learn that being clean and tidy has nothing to do with going out!
7. Try not to blame or comment on every word or action they say or do. Learn to overlook and let go sometimes. This certainly builds their self-confidence.
8. Ask your children’s permission before entering their rooms. Don’t just knock and enter, but then wait for a verbal permission. They will learn to do the same when wanting to enter your room.
9. Apologize to your children if you made a mistake. Apologizing teaches them to be humble and polite.
10. Don’t be sarcastic or make fun of their views or feelings, even if you “didn’t mean it” and was “only joking”. It really hurts.
11. Show respect to your children’s privacy. Its important for their sense of value and self-esteem.
12. Don’t expect that they will listen or understand the first time. Don’t take it personally. But be patient and consistent.
13.Pray with them. Show them how to pray.
Lead by example.

Lady Dupes Lover N10m, Dumps Him For Another Man (pic)
A Nigerian man based abroad, Ogunshakin Emmanuel, got what he did not bargain for after he reportedly sent about N10m to his fiancée, Miss Mary Egodo, 30, for her to buy a property in Lagos in preparation for their marriage only to come back to discover that she swindled him and bolted away with another lover.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the suspect, Mary, not only duped Emmanuel, she blocked every contact and relocated to an unknown place so that Emmanuel will not locate her when he returns to Nigeria.
The lady, Mary, was said to have relocated and was enjoying the money with another lover without buying any property and was not ready to get married to Emmanuel.
However, the alleged scam was reported to the Police, who trailed and eventually arrested Mary in her hideout. She was asked to refund the money but she said that she had spent the whole money.
According to Police sources, the man, Emmanuel, who hails from Ekiti State, met Mary, who is from Delta State in Ibafo area of Ogun State, where Mary lives with her parents.
In the course of their relationship, they agreed to get married before Emmanuel traveled abroad for greener pastures with the consent of Mary.
While Emmanuel was abroad, he sent money at different times through Mary’s First Bank account with number 0491076066, with the agreement that Mary will use the money to buy land and develop it before he will return to consummate the relationship.
Unknown to Emmanuel, Mary was busy enjoying the money with her other lover and deceived him that he had already acquired the property as they agreed.
However, when Emmanuel informed her that he will be coming back to Nigeria to formalize the marriage and to see the property she bought with the money sent to her, Mary blocked all his numbers and relocated without any trace to reach her. Emmanuel was shocked and reported what happened to the Police.
The Police then tracked and eventually arrested her. After interrogation and having been found culpable, she was charged before the Ejigbo Magistrate Court for fraud and conversion of the money.
She pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Inspector Bernard Aigbokhan, asked the Court to give a date for hearing for the Police to prove that she actually committed the alleged offence.
Thus, the Presiding Magistrate, Mr. E.O. Ogunkanmi, granted Mary bail in the sum of N3m with two sureties in like sum.
She was remanded in Correctional Centre at Kirikiri town, Lagos, pending when she will perfect her bail conditions.
The matter was adjourned till 19th April, 2021, for mention.
Somehow, Herdsmen Have Been Subjected to Unfair Treatment – Isa Yuguda
Former Governor of Bauchi State, Mallam Isa Yuguda has alleged that the Fulani people particularly herdsmen, have been subjected to unfair treatment.
His statement was in reaction to the recent allegations connecting Fulani herdsmen to insecurity in Nigeria.
Speaking with journalists on Monday, Yuguda said: “I think the cattle rearers who have been herding for the past 200 years all over the country cannot just wake up in the morning and all of a sudden become AK-47 killers.
“And most importantly, the neglect of the Fulani, especially the cattle rearers who are presently giving Nigeria a minimum of one million cattle every day to slaughter and take as beef, their treatment by the Nigerian people have been most unfair.
“Most unfair in the sense that, at the time when Lord Luggard finished conquering northern Nigeria, they were the only source of revenue. They provided the revenue that jumpstarted development in terms of monopolizing infrastructure in the north including Benue state where they have been chased out now.
“They are pastoralists, they are people who provide beef for the country and you can see them as agricultural ventures or animal husbandry.
“There have been billions and trillions of investments in agriculture, in the forms of subsidies for fertilizer and so on, have you ever heard the federal government subsidizing pastoralism?
“What I am saying, in essence, is that the Nigerian state has not been fair to these people. The mindset, especially down South is that the Fulanis are gun-carrying people. There has been a clamour by senior citizens of this country that we should carry weapons but Governor Mohammed (Bauchi governor) made a remark to that effect, everybody was sentimental.
“When a senior elder statement said we should carry guns, where were you guys? Nobody wrote about it until Governor Mohammed spoke about it. These people deserve the right to defend themselves, let us stop being sentimental for God sake.”
He was making reference to Gov. Bala Mohammed’s statement that herdsmen need the AK-47 they carry to protect themselves since the government won’t.
Kaduna Pensioner Burns Down His House To Prevent Estranged Wife From Packing In
A Kaduna based pensioner, Musa Aga, has shocked his neighbours in the Gonin-Gora area of popular LEA Primary School in Kaduna by burning down his two-bedroom flat to prevent his estranged wife, with whom he had been separated for over 20 years, from returning to live with him.
His children, who had insisted on their mother returning to live with their father despite Musa’s insistence to the contrary, had forcefully broken into the house through the roof to bring back into the house, the former Mrs Aga’s belongings.
Musa, who had retired from Kaduna State Ministry of Rural and Community Development in 2015, is from Kagoro in the Southern part of Kaduna State.
Narrating the reason why he burnt down his house, Musa said, “I divorced my wife for about 20 years now. But now the children are forcing me to stay with their mother. But I said no because when the elders and pastors of our church pleaded with her to come back to me she had earlier said no.
“But now she said she wants to come back to me. I also said no but the children are forcing me saying that their mother must stay with me. They brought her and her property to meet me at my house. They removed the roof and the ceiling to enter my house. That’s why I was annoyed and I didn’t like it, so I set my house on fire. This is the match box, that I used. So let bygones be bygones.”
Asked if the house was built from his gratuity, he said, “Yes, it was from my gratuity. But because of the annoyance with my family, I decided to burn it down. Let bygones be bygones.
When asked if the children will not feel bad about his actions he said, “Yes, I want them to feel it that’s why I did it. They want to force me to stay with their mother but I don’t want to. They said it is their father’s house, but now their father’s house is no more there. Do you see why I burnt it?
Musa when said that such actions are very rare with people of his age who normally would want to keep legacy for their children to inherit, when they are no more, he said, “Yes but when they are not good you don’t keep anything for them, except if they are good and they listen to you. They are not good.
“If they are good can they force their father to stay with their mother like that? I trained them for them to look after me when I grow old but now they are treating me badly.
Efforts by the neighborhood to put out the inferno failed as the fire was fuelled by the powerful harmattan breeze.
The breeze heightened the fear of close neighbors that their houses might be affected, hence they concentrated and controlled it against spreading.
While some were battling to control the fire, emergency local youthful village scavengers were busy gathering burnt zincs, metal and iron scraps, even as some were onlookers, some commentators, some wailers.
One of the daughters was crying because of her credentials and according to insiders, they didn’t envisage the setting of the house on fire.
It was also learnt that one of the daughters was alleged to have insisted that the father must accept her dowry even though he didn’t accept the dowry of the other daughters, therefore their mother must return to their father’s house and accept her dowry.
Sources told SATURDAY INDEPENDENT that a woman In her 40s was overheard saying that the ex-wife was allegedly flirting since she knew Musa was struggling to build the house and was living in rented apartment for many years.
