Who Really Uses Parenting Guides?

I hate parenting guides. I hate school(Who invented school? who taught the first person about gathering a bunch of kids and wasting their childhood is rooms.) because it sucks and given a chance to go back in time and will forego school.

I will look for children my age, we’ll play and have fun and sleep.

When planting season came, I would work on the farm and go the community market in the afternoon to waste time talking about the next day planting event at the next farm. Laziness.

At the age of marriage, I will chase the neighbour’s girl and marry her and have children and train my kids to be innovative and forget about working for a bank or the government.

If we go back, there would definitely be no NGOs to work for, and people would love one another.

I know it is important to go to school, but I don’t think it’s essential to wholly focus on going to school. Lately, the focus has shifted from more realistic goals of self-motivation, improvement and triggering the sense of innovation to merely defined living. Taking 8 glasses of water daily like the guy next to me. Schooling to get a white colour job like the guy whose story appeared on Daily Nation.

Who wrote the parenting guides?Who follows the guide? Fuck the idea that there is a way children should be raised. Children should be left to learn. The best way of parenting is helping your kids through their choices. Let them learn from the consequences of the choices they make. No one should lecture anyone on parenting. Same way I say there is no blueprint to being successful. Focus on the choices you make whether they help you and destroy you.

No one should lecture anyone on parenting. Same way I say there is no blueprint to being successful in life. Focus on the choices you make whether they help you and destroy you.

How do I make money writing academic content online

I got this question on Quora and prepared this answer for you. Perhaps it would be helpful for anyone that seeks to start a career as a freelance or an academic writer. It is true that some online entrepreneurs are surviving on this alone. The bad news is there is no college or university to teach you academic writing or content creation, and the good news is that there are no barriers to entry.

First, it is important to note that academic writing is not very easy neither is it difficult. It is not a get rich quick scheme, or some sought of pyramid scheme where you make a lot of money at once very quickly. Of course, you can make a lot of money if you are good at what you do.

You need patience, self-discipline, and hard work. Prepare yourself if you want to get into academic writing or any form of content creation. It is likely to take you longer or shorter depending on you. Here are some 4 key elements that you need to know:

Writing skills: You need to have a passion for words. Academic writing is the thing for if you can juggle your words well. Tens of sites offer writing skills online. You can google some and get places that teach on this skills.

Research Skills: This is essential to help you find information online. It is not possible for you to be the source of all the knowledge online. There must be people who did explore that topic before. You need their contribution to further your ideas. This also means you need to know several referencing styles. Online writing lab can be a good place to start in understanding these referencing styles. I bet you must have exposed to either one of the referencing styles.

Mastery of language: First of all you need to be very good with your writing skills. Most of the people who seek academic writing services either have poor mastery of the English language or have little time to handle the task. I say this because I have written for academic sites and you need to be good at the language to ensure that you give high-quality essays

Know your subject: Academic writing requires you to know what you are writing. The knowledge of the subject matter of you are writing will help you find relevant material to support your argument.

Remember to be kind to people. Do you best at all times and ensure that clients keep coming back to you. This way you make sure you have income coming through all year round.

I want to freelance but I have no guts

I decided to spend the weekend with my wife. She had been alone and lonely since our son went to visit his grandmother a week ago. Our son matters to her, she usually doesn’t need me around but this time, she did.

“Did you give the letter?” she asked as busied herself in the kitchen.

Late last month I embarked on an ambitious mission to quite my job, and I sort advice from friends who were indifferent on my desire to quit. I involved Joan in the talk, and she was ready for anything.

” I haven’t,” I answered. Joan then murmurs  “just stick in there for a month and wait for feedback from HR.”

The truth is I am scared, but I am sure this is what I want to do. I think my wife understands this because she says we find another job. Since I don’t want to disappoint her, (She is so lovely, lovable and loving and gentle, typical supportive traditional Kalenjin wife and a pain in the ass at times especially when referring if it is related past failed attempt to quit) I agree.

It didn’t take long. Joan was back on the couch. This whole time I was busy on the phone and the TV was on. I didn’t understand why I had to be on my blog monitoring analytics while she was there just there on the couch.

I realized that I usually write about her and she knows that. Lately, the first thing that comes out of her mouth before any conversation is “You will not write about this” and nod in agreement. But I write about not writing about a conversation we had. I do it perfectly, and she can’t pin me down. She has never asked me to pull a post down.

Here is real me and what I say when she is not listening. Fuck the blueprint which goes like this. Go to school, be obedient, study hard, pass exams, go to college, pass with first class honors, get out of college, get a job (get employed) find a nice girl, marry her have children, retire, then die (you cannot mention this in the blueprint)

Now listen! I went to school to play. The school owned a large chunk of land with acres of space for all sorts of games. There were other children, a lot of them, to play with and this is what took me to school in the first place. I had my agenda at age 7 for joining nursery school which I attend for a term. I spent precious time playing and then I graduated to the next class and then my head teacher realized that if he sat on me, I would be his shining star. I hated that feeling of responsibility of making me an ideal pupil.

And then there was the high school. I went to two different high schools. The first one wasn’t serious (eventually, the school was shut down the year I left), so my guardian took me to the other one which was more strict about education. A local mega-church owned the school. In this school is where I that learned that even pastors get hooked to drugs.

Then I did my O-level, and I passed. Everything seemed to follow the god damn blueprint. I didn’t have an alternative.  I went to college and ate, played volleyball and slept. So I met Joan on the pitch playing. I left college and got a contract, then got employed and I stopped playing. Then Joan was here, and then the Ethan was here.

I feel I am a rebel and being tied to 8 to 5 job makes me less productive. I love freedom. I enjoy tasks that allow me to work at my own pace and utilize personal skills while teasing my brain. I love to be a freelancer but I am scared to quit. I will eventually quit though.

A Review of Jean-Baptiste Poquelin Moliere’s play Tartuffe

Jean-Baptiste Poquelin Moliere’s play Tartuffe is a famous classical play first performed in Paris in the mid-17th century.The French capital is a social city consistent with the playset that reflects the life of a family that accommodates a stranger, Tartuffe, who was depicted as a religious imposter.

Tartuffe won the heart of Orgon, the man of the house. Orgon gives all his possessions to Tartuffe. Surprisingly, he also gifts Tartuffe, his daughter who was engaged by then. The gimmicks did not cow other members of the family, and they devised ways to expose who Tartuffe was.

They failed at their first attempt but eventually succeeded. Moliere’s play, Tartuffe, combines literary criticism, theatre history, political history, and religious history as central to power struggles in the early reigns of Louis XIV.

The play depicts a controversial intersectional between religion and government. Tartuffe was at the centre of a scandal in Moliere’s own time. The play was banned after its first performance, and it resurfaced several years later in an altered form. This was hypocrisy on the part of French society.

Tartuffe presents himself as a religious man who makes Orgon trust him with secret information. He uses the information to blackmail Orgon.  Tartuffe, besides castigating bigotry, embodied moral attitudes which found a natural habitat in the courts of 1660s which challenged the whole devout way of life.

Many of those called spiritual advisors were no more than parasites who took advantage of the beliefs of people to swindle property from them. Orgon disinherits his son and chases him away for trying to prove that Tartuffe was an imposter. Orgon turns away from his family and pledges loyalty to Tartuffe.

He planned to squander his wealth which was a threat to his family. The Imposter was breaking Orgon’s family.

He planned to squander his wealth which was a threat to his family. The Imposter was breaking Orgon’s family.

Literature plays a critical role in educating the society by bringing to light issues that are left under the carpet. Tartuffe opens up the minds of many who were caught in the same predicament. The possibility of eradicating social evil is presented through literature. Literature, therefore, becomes a valuable tool used to create a more coherent society that values one another and proper’s together. The play ends on a happy note. Tartuffe is apprehended by an officer while Orgon’s daughter married her fiancé.

3 reasons why Kenya needs Insurance

I wanted to copy and paste and article I got from world bank blog here but it would be a crime. Plagiarism is crime since it’s practically theft. I am not a thief but I derive motivation to talk about issues that affect me. Understanding marine insurance was insightful and there were questions raised, for example, Purity asked, how many customers have I convinced to take marine insurance locally since marine insurance is international in nature? Zero was my answer but that does not deter me from selling it. If you need insurance for your property i.e car, house, business premises, do not hesitate to contact me. Here is me contact form
