PARENTS TEENAGERS Conflict Resolution

Teenagers are dynamic human beings in nature due to the features and characteristics synonymous to their level of development in the stages of growth. The way they reason and their overview of life is quite different from that of adults. The level of technological advancement in the 21st century has gone a long way to compound this. They bathe in the euphoria of their own world carved out for themselves and feel no one can understand them except their peers
This is mostly as a result of the Physical, Emotional and Psychological changes that occur at this stage of the human development. Parents and their teenagers often and I mean almost all the time clash on different issues ranging from house chores, choice of clothes, what to watch on TV, food and so on. In a nutshell the values and beliefs of the teenagers are quite different from that of the adult parents, They will rather believe their peers who they feel understands them than anyone else who does not fall into that category. Parental guidance is often rebuffed by teens who feel they are due for some kind of independence.
Teenagers and conflict are inseparable due to their confused personality, they are caught in between childhood and adulthood. Most of the time they choose to behave like adults which ends up in conflict with the adults around them from their parents, uncle and aunties, teachers and so on. Often than not they feel they know it all and resists correction or instructions of parents which are mostly regarded as old fashion or archaic.

Poems on Making Decisions

Ever wondered how your eyes work? How do two separate organs concave one image at the same time without confusion? It is not so simple, but let’s say there two wires that pass through behind your eyes (the optic nerve) and carry the information to your brain. But remember also that your brain, just like your eyes, nostrils, arms, legs, kidneys, lungs, etc. are made up of 2 separate “lobes”, or let’s just say two halves. So, it stands to reason that 2 dif¬ferent images hit your 2 eyes, (though you are focusing on one object) but create one single perspective (since your focus is on one object).
At the end of the day, one image is formed, a compos¬ite image actually. So, if peradventure, there is a slight problem with your left eye for example, that changes the way your left eye sees things, you’d find out that the final image of what you see would be distorted. If you however, CHOOSE to close your left eye, the right eye would capture the object, to its best capacity and you would get a near perfect image because that right eye is intact.
Matt 6:22-23 makes us know that “the light of the body is the eye: if the eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if the eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is the darkness” See- a single eye is constructed with an evil eye; and suffice to say that they are both products of the choices we make.
We can choose to have a “single” eye (i.e. a good per¬spective to life, a good conscience) and we can choose to have the opposite –an evil eye. The result is obvious- a good perfect image or a dis¬torted one. We don’t need a prophet to tell us the right choice to make. We, however, need the Holy Spirit to help us to always make the right choice. A single eye-who can find!!!

GIVE YOUR EYES THAT LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA ATTENTION

Entrepreneruial MANAGEMENT CULTURE

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now ” - so goes a famous saying. Many entrepreneurs today say they wish they had started on their path sooner, way back from their youtful years. The sooner you stsrt working toward a goal, the sooner your knowledge, experience and money start compounding. Share Femi’s Story...
Entrepreneurship has many definitions, one of which is “the process of evaluating ones surrounding and constantly seeking out needs/wants of people and responding to their conscious/unconscious demands.
A popular question “ Is there any age to begin to understand ones environment, seek out problems, take advantage of opportunities and proffer solutions whilst creating wealth?” Is this what I want to help answer? Well, the answer is NO and I hope I can shed more light into my response by telling my own entrepreneurial story.
My name is Olufemi Adebayo, a member of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries as well as an alumnus of the Teenage Church and I am currently the Business Manager of Novel Planners Enterprises, a burgeoning planning and management organization registered in 2005. Indulge me as I share my story through the following points:
Desire and Drive I remember growing up as a child wanting to be so independent and at the same time wanting everything in vogue from clothes to computer games etc. This uncontrollable desire lead me to executing my first business transaction in SS2 in secondary school, I was fifteen (15) years old then.
I had a friend in the Teenage Church who had an uncle who was in the business of importing perfumes and I knew this because my friend always used to smell so good and I had to ask him about the perfumes he used and how he got them.
I saw a business opportunity present itself and felt rather than have perfumes to use why not sell them, then came the question of who to sell to. I then made up my mind and approached him and told him I could help sell his uncle’s perfumes, whilst thinking on how to get buyers I remembered there was a supermarket on my route home from school and I decided to approach the owner and she agreed to buy the perfumes and because of the rock bottom price she agreed to pay cash on delivery rather than getting paid only when the perfumes were sold and that’s how my first hand to hand business began.
All the while my mum kept counselling me and advis¬ing me to desist from being covetous because I always wanted anything my friends had even if my parents could or could not afford them, the game changer for me was when my mum told me it was okay to desire to make money or to do business but what was most important were the reasons behind it, she told me to focus on the tomorrow, the unknown and to channel my desires to im¬proving my future by securing it by being the best I can be for myself and people around me rather than focusing on material things. I then accepted that I needed to start small and grow into fulfilling a purpose.
“Job 8 vs 7 – Though the beginning was small, yet thy lat¬ter end should greatly increase”. I then knew I could only become a better person and be more prosper¬ous. So my young friends let your positive desires be your driving force!!!

Courage and Perseverance

Haven understood reasons for being in bus At the end of this, I had raised enough to plan my event and to the glory of God it was successful and the following year I was ap¬proached by other departments to help them plan their social activities which charged them for of course.
business, I did not relent as I grew older and in my higher institution days I found it easy to relate with much older people. In my second (2nd) year in University, I became a Telecoms product marketer who was retailing SIM cards and recharge cards in bulk. This was possible because I had met a young man who was a business man and a neigh¬bor to a school mate, that year the Telecoms organization.
