Battle of Technology

As a parent how much knowledge do you carry on the latest technology gadgets and social media?

I consider myself someone with quite a bit of knowledge and yet it seems that i haven’t even scrapped the surface of the new technology available to society let alone to speak of our kids.

The only way to keep our kids safe is to keep yourself current with the latest technologies and social slang or lingo that the kids are using.

I must admit it sound rather daunting to learn all these new things but quite necessary in our lives.

How many devices does your kids own? Some kids have, phones, tablets, iPad’s and computers or play stations and all these devices are able to log onto the web.

Familiarise yourself with social media platforms, check your kids social media accounts weekly.

Here are some tips on internet safety:

When client expect Quality for nothing or free..

I think it’s fair to say that in general people are expecting everything at low cost or free.

Why is it that people think that it’s ok to want everything for free or at discounted prices?

Now in general we believe that customer service is of utmost importance and we ensure that our clients leave our business happy campers. Then we get those customers that asked for a cheaper service however we still ensure that the quality of the work is our number one priority.

You will find that these are the clients that give you the most problems from a after service point of view. They will through their toys out of the cot for everything that goes wrong. It’s a general rule that we always advise clients that the cheaper options could lead to certain issues at a later stage, however they will insist on this options.

We also show the clients before they leave that their item is working and again explain the importance of certain dangers, yet they have the audacity to come back and insist that the item never worked and then they refuse to pay.

Although they say the client is always right, i feel that’s not always the case. Sometimes you have to learn which clients to cut off and which to retain.

Small Town Syndrome called drugs..

There is something to be said about living in a small town..

People seem to be extremely narrow and closed minded, yet family orientated, perhaps to family orientated.

The society here mainly consists of drug users, tik and rocks and while i’m pretty sure the problem is global it somehow feels like the small little town can’t escape the evil these drugs bring. These people are sent to the most expensive rehab facilities leaving their families ruined and penniless. They come back from rehab and the vicious cycle continuous, they come back to the same circumstances and familiarity. The worst part is that their families either condone their addictions or they simply send them back to rehab.

There are many people that managed to escape this small town syndrome by moving forward or moving onto bigger things and it’s not as if these people actually had more financial freedom, it’s a simple choice that they’ve made for better lives for themselves and their kids.

Some people have the ability to take others down that drug addicted path with them and it’s a prison that very few can escape once you’ve been enslaved. The worst part for them, would be their enablers, the very people that condone or perhaps feed their addictions. They can’t escape this addictive small town syndrome, they are here to stay, they are here to ruin more lives, they are here because the very thing that destroys them are here..

Stop feeding these people their addictions, let them go, you can only help someone that wants to be helped.

Kindness

Sometimes I feel that not all of humanity deserves to be treated with kindness.

We are brought up to be respectful to our elders and people in general. This is how manners was instilled in our lives. Some get the pleasure of acting out their kindness to one another and then u get those that pure evil can’t even recognise.

Kindness should be a selfless act……people shouldn’t feed off kindness!

Are schools or parents breeding bullies?

Who is ultimately responsible for kids bullying another kid/s at school? The parents or principals or teachers who carries knowledge of this abuse?

With all the suicides these days one would’ve thought that the Department of Education would welcome strict and a no tolerance attitude towards bullies.

In light of the latest case of a kid’s attempted suicide. The school wanted to know what is it the parents expect from the school, are u fucking serious?

As a parent I would insist on immediate expelltion and if this doesn’t not happen approach the media like Carte Blanche, blow it up.

The fact is if a principal has not acted on various complaints one has to but wonder, why? Are they protecting their sports star or mommy and daddy’s little spoilt rich kids?

This sad reality is that when a kid commits suicide their parents live with the void and pain for the rest of their lives. But when a bullie’s future’s are in danger their parents are quick to through shit fits.

Bullies should not have the right to be educated in civilised schools they should be sent to prison of remedial schools. There parents should also be taken to task.

Sunday’s are meant to spend with families

In this day and age we simply have no time for much for one another, we make a point to get together as a family every Sunday to catch up on everyone’s lives, sometimes there is laughter sometimes there are tears but the love we have for one another will ways remain.

Normal Sunday lunch, curry, roast chicken, rice, sweet oven roasted butternut and carrots, cottage pie, mac and cheese, beetroot salad and patcha..

It's about life, love, living, food, health, relationships, parenthood..
