What do you do when your own kids trigger a meltdown?

Yesterday was tough ending day for me. I returned home to an upside down house, no food and seemingly a ‘no care’ trio.

I was triggered and eventually had a meltdown. I did get dinner for the four of us but I was numb. I then went to sleep and it’s 08:08 am my time and I haven’t yet opened my door.

I am much better now and I coped with all of that my own way, by lashing some, crying a lot, doing a live video last night and another one to raise awareness this morning, and yes I had a call with a soul sister too last night.

I am going out now to see them boys, and dunno if to bring this whole episode up or not. It must be hard for our kids too especially with the challenges of the seasons courtesy of Covid-19 pandemic.

Anyways, all is well that ends well. I wish us all the best.


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.
