30 Questions to Investigate Your Child’s Beliefs

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Family, Kids, Parents

How many times have you looked into your child’s eyes and said “I love you”? How many times have you watched your child disappear behind those big school doors and thought to yourself, ‘I hope they will survive the challenges that life has in store for them’? How many times have you cuddled your child to sleep, hoping he or she will have a happy and purposeful life lived to their full potential? I am convinced the answer is an infinite number of times! But what gives us permission to make those choices that allow us to live life passionately or indifferently, purposefully or without direction, actively or inactively?

Eating off my plate – Martin Beeko

Posted on 13 CommentsPosted in Lifestyle

Ladies, let me talk to you for a minute. You know we (your husbands, fiancées, boyfriends) love you, but I want to address one troubling issue that I’m sure most men can relate to. Let’s start by painting a picture. Me: Behbeh, I’m ordering some food. What would you like? Her: I’m not hungry. I don’t want anything. The confirmation has been made very clear. Only one of us will be eating this food. I order my food and I am mentally rubbing my hands together in anticipation of my meal. I have made plans for this meal. I intend to enjoy every single bite of it myself since I have been informed that this will be a meal for […]

Five year marriage reflection by Martin Beeko

Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in Lifestyle

Who would have thought, the girl I found to be incredibly loud and seemingly incapable of sitting still would become my wife. We met approximately 20 years ago and and the first impression I had of her was not a good one. In hind sight, the situation may have been exacerbated by my frustration on losing a basketball game I had just been ejected from moments before she made her appearance.   I was sitting on the picnic bench in school fuming over losing a basketball game and out she comes screaming at the top of her lungs just running out of the washroom with her friends. The high pitched laughter was followed by a dagger Iike stare from me […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Family, Lifestyle, Uncategorized

The Farmers Market Last week I stumbled on this wonderful family event with Tess. The urbanbox farmers market! Not only was it located at one of my all time favorite Mmfora park (possibly the only kids park in Ghana) but also served delicious crepes for breakfast! Have you ever tried a prawn crepe? Oh my it’s orgasmic! I got some shopping done, met up with friends over breakfast and Tess had a blast running all around the park playing games.  The Urbanbox, – “buy local, eat fresh” Owned by a lovely and inspiring Ghanaian  and Ivorian couple, The Urbanbox  is an online grocery store aiming to bridge the gap between local farmers and the metropolis consumer; you and me! Everything is […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Family, Kids, Parents

Veronica Owusu-Byczkowska I had my share of struggles with the F word. Fortunately, time and experience open your eyes. I have come to understand the hidden beauty and necessity of this very little understood expression. But what if your child too is struggling with talk of the F word? F for FAILURE. As a parent, that raises my concern. “Argh! Mummy! I can’t tie my shoelaces! I can’t!” “Mum, I hate Maths!. I couldn’t answer the questions the teacher asked me!” “My project wasn’t accepted, I can’t do anything right!” “I didn’t make it into the football team.” “Mum, somebody stole my bike from the playground!!!” Are these few examples of our children’s misfortunes and frustrations signs of being a […]
