  1. My son, if you keep spending on a woman and she never asked you if you’re saving or investing, and she keeps enjoying the attention, don’t marry her.
  2. My son, a woman could be a good wife to you, some could be a good mother to your children but if you’ve found a woman like a mother to you, your children and your family, please don’t let her go.
  3. My son, don’t confine the position of your wife to the kitchen, where did you get that from? Even in our days, we had farm-lands where they worked every morning . . . that was our office.
  4. My son, if I tell you that you’re the head of the house, don’t look at your pocket; look if you will see a smile on your wife’s face.
  5. My son, if you want to have a long life, let your wife be in-charge of your salary, it will be difficult for her to spend it when she’s aware of the home needs and bills to pay but if it’s in your care, she will keep you asking even when all has been spent.
  6. My son, don’t ever beat your woman, the pain in her body is nothing to be compared to the wound on her heart and that means you may be in trouble living with a wounded woman.
  7. My son, now that you’re married, if you live a bachelor kind of life with your wife, you will soon be single again.
  8. My son, in our days, we had many wives and many children because of our large farm-lands and many harvests, there are hardly any land for farming anymore, so embrace your woman closely.
  9. My son, under the cocoa tree that I did meet your mother could be your eateries and restaurants of nowadays, but remember, the closet thing we did there was to embrace each other.
  10. My son, don’t be carried away when you start making more money, instead of spending on those tiny legs that never knew how hard you worked to get it, spend it on that woman that stood by you all along.
  11. My son, when I threw little stones or whistled at the window of your mother father’s house, to call her out, it was not for sex, it was because I missed her so much.
  12. My son, remember, when you say your wife has changed, there could be something you’ve stopped doing too.
  13. My son, your mother, Asake rode the bicycle with me before I bought that tortoise car outside there, any woman that won’t endure with you in your little beginning should not enjoy your riches.
  14. My son, don’t compare your wife to any woman, there are ways she’s enduring you too and has she ever compared you to any man?
  15. My son, there is this thing you people call feminism, well, if a woman claim to have equal right with you in the house, divide all the bills into two equal parts, take one part and ask her to start paying the other part.
  16. My son, I met your mother a virgin and I took more yams to her father, if you don’t meet your wife a virgin, don’t blame her, what I didn’t tell you is that our women had prestige.
  17. My son, I didn’t send your sisters to school because I was foolish like many to think a female child won’t extend my family name, please don’t make that mistake, the kind of female achievers I see nowadays has made the male-gender an ordinary tag.
  18. My son, your mother have once locked up the cloth I was wearing and almost tore it because she was angry, I did not raise my hand to beat her because of a day like this, so that I can be proud to tell you that I never for once beat your mother.
  19. My son, in our days, our women had more of natural beauty, though I wouldn’t lie to you, some had minor painting of their appellation mostly on their arms, the ones you people now call tattoo, but don’t forget that they didn’t expose any part of their body like your women of nowadays.
  20. My son, your mother and I are not interested in what happens in your marriage, try to handle issues without always coming to us.
  21. My son, remember I bought your mother’s first sewing machine for her, help your wife achieve her dreams just as you’re pursuing yours.
  22. My son, don’t stop taking care of me and your mother, it’s a secret of growing old and having children to take care of you too.

Fathers are truly special and this list basically sums up how they would speak to their son who is about to get hitched! What do you think? Le us know in the comment box below and share this post to your family and friends too!

I can’t exactly remember what I was doing when I was 18, but it definitely wasn’t building a foundation to solve a major global problem.

The use of plastic bags and containers makes our daily lives much more convenient. However, when we are done using them, the problem starts to pile up, literally. Plastics are non-biodegradable materials than cannot be destroyed by any means and thus stays on Earth forever. The question is how are we supposed to get rid of it from our lives? We are not exactly sure how, but most of these plastic wastes end up in the oceans.

One high school student named Boyan Slat saw the devastation that's been happening in our oceans so for his school project, he tried to develop a device that can help clean the oceans. In 2012 — when he was just 18 — Boyan gave his first TEDx Talk about cleaning up the ocean. In his talk, he laid out his proposal for cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an enormous and still-growing island of plastic and other trash floating in the north Pacific ocean between California and Hawaii.

Children should be taught good manners and right conduct at a very young age. Good attitude should be firmly instilled in them early in life so that they can carry it through when they become adults. Whilst there are still good Samaritans everywhere and we appreciate them, we can't help but feel a special kind of joy upon seeing children doing good deeds.

In this social experiment, young children were asked by their companions to fall in line and wait. Suddenly, the adult next to them drops his/ her wallet, and the children are left with a decision to return, ignore or grab the wallet.

Watch the video below to find out how the kids responded:



All the participants in the social experiment returned the wallets. It is wonderful to see young children with such pure innocence and genuine good will! Yes, it is innate for them to do good but it is up to the parents and guardians how they can discipline their kids to continue living with integrity and responsibility as they grow into adults.
