Single mother’s relationship – Ciscasquapro

From a concerned parent:

I am a single mother of three children. First born is 19 years, second born 16 years and the only girl, last born is 12 years. I have raised them all by myself. I have a job and so I am able to meet their needs.

A year ago I met a man in my life whom I feel it’s more than a friendship. He is a widower with two children who are above 20years and we are planning to move together as a husband and a wife. My worry is my children who are teenagers. I don’t know how to approach them. I fear their reaction.

I feel I need someone to love me as a husband but I am worried on the reaction of my kids. How will I tell them that we will be moving in with a man who will be their dad? Moving from my house to the man’s house and stay as a family? If you come across this lines, kindly advise.

Yours concerned mother

Why you should not practise Female Genital Mutilation(FGM) – Ciscasquapro

We have already seen what FGM is all about and its different levels.

The practice has brought a number of Health complications to girls and women. Let’s look at some of them:

  • Complications during child birth. The scar brings reduction of elasticity of the birth canal. Labour becomes longer and more painful with each subsequent birth
  • The hygiene during the procedure is compromised. Tools used are not sterilised between the procedure and this increases the chances of infection under exposure of HIV and AIDS
  • Girls with poor immune system find it hard to resist the infection hence compromising their health
  • Due to it’s confidenciallity, the girls are not allowed to access medical care should it be required.
  • The excess bleeding brought about by the rapture of clitoris may make the girls anaemic.

In kenya, the FGM act 2010 by Fred Kapondi prohibates the act of FGM.

My dog made me know of my pregnancy

Dogs are peculiar creatures which sometimes can be very sensitive. They have been used in search of drugs and explosives. Those who keep them as pets have said that they experience grief after loss. It was strange a lady known as Rachel to realise that her dog reacted differently due to her pregnancy which she came to realise later. This is what she said:

“Apollo was there for me when I had my lows of lows,” Rachel says of the pup, whom she “fell in love with” at the shelter.

Though always loving and protective, there was one day when Apollo left his snout resting on Rachel’s abdomen for an extended period of time. She snapped photos of the sweet moment and remembered finding it unusual for him, but didn’t think too hard beyond that.

Three weeks later, Rachel’s life changed forever when she had a positive pregnancy test, and nine months later, welcomed her son, Donovan.

Though Apollo was your typical high-energy dog, “when that baby came home, I’d never seen Apollo so gentle,” Rachel recalled. Now two-and-a-half years later, “he’s a big brother to my son,” she says, adding that it’s obvious how much he loves his human sibling.

You may wonder why the dog could realise that Rachel was Pregnant. Sarah Wilson (a dog trainer) explains this:

Dogs are good in smelling. When a woman is pregnant, it comes with morning sickness and change of hormones behaviour. This makes the body to produce some oduor. When the dog smells, it can react on it differently. This happens mostly if the dog has known the person for sometime. The woman changes her behaviour towards the dog making it demand for more attention.
