Take care of yourself, before others

Take care of yourself, then you can take care of others. In an airplane, if the masks fall, you have to wear your own mask before helping your child. In the same thing in life, if you are emotionally or physically exhausted, you will not be able to take care of anyone.

Do you remember your 1st boyfriend?

I remember my first boyfriend, mainly because it only lasted a week and almost drove me bat crazy in that short of time. I dated the "I dunno" guy. He didn't have an opinion on anything. He did know where to go on a date, what activities we could do, what conversation topics we could... Continue Reading →

What’s most shocking about University

What shocked me the University is the sheer number of female students who were there to find a husband. I couldn't believe that this type of thinking was still striving in society.  I might have been raised to aspire to marriage like many women, but I was never expected to make my life choices always...

Jalousy isn’t love

Spousal violence always has psychological impacts no matter the form it takes. As a mother, I strongly believe pre-adolescent and adolescent prevention is essential for them to learn how to peacefully resolve conflicts that may arise in their first dating relationships.

Do you remember your best friend from elementary school?

Do you remember your best friend in elementary school? Are you still friends? When is the last time you heard about them?  I lived in a small village. Neighbours, in general, were really far from each other. I couldn't just take my bike and visit friends. I needed a ride. It's probably why my brother,... Continue Reading →

Lets talk about blood

Menstruation is not just a women's issue. It shouldn't be a dirty little secret that people whisper about behind closed doors. Why is it that most men have no problem with watching war movies, horror movies, action movies with lots of blood, but many of them lose it when someone starts talking about periods? All...

Blended Cultures

I've written about the special blend of racism that multi-cultural kids and grown-ups face in a past blog before. Today I wanted to talk about other challenges that mixed children experience. You may not relate if you have grown up in a single culture, but if you have mixed blooded friends have them read this... Continue Reading →

Is your point of view sexist?

There are numerous examples of double standards when it comes to men and women. Some are easier to see than others. Some points of views are so ingrained in our lives that we don't even notice them. Men and women in positions of authority are often viewed/received differently.  Society views a man as commanding and a woman as... Continue Reading →
