An unmade bed leads to more hahahaha

I jumbled it all up like that so they find some work to do after school hahahaha

#parentingtrenches An unmade bed makes me discover an unkept room and I use non verbal communication once more. I was stepping out for my workout and hmm the house was so ‘seemingly’ in order. They had even remembered to turn off the light in their room on a Monday morning wow. So curiosity said I should spy in there and boom: BED NOT MADE. The penalty for that used to be 200frs per person but someone risked never having money if I stuck by that.

And well, they have been trying their best. Sadly today, as I peeped in there, I saw an almost full paper basket, a cupboard unkept, two boxes not packed, and I decided to draw their attention to that in the least energy draining way possible. Non verbal communication works for me and that’s what they would see when they come back. It has been scientifically and psychologically proven that a cluttered environment has a link to a cluttered mind. I am just helping them to get that now and not later. In addition to the above, isn’t CLEANLINESS NEXT TO GODLINESS?

Make I dey go my sports o.

Have a Marvelous Monday everyone.


Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to Marie Abanga) aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.

  1. Amen, Bombo! I used to have to teach my youngest son in that way, but he keeps everything clean now. He even deep cleans his room and bathroom every Sunday. They’ll appreciate that when they get older.

    1. The first son learned it pretty quick, the second is doing his best and even praying for for more cleanliness lol, but the star of 10 Oga G is seemingly having fun in that jumble hahahaha
