Parents should look for better ways to discipline their children.


Spanking teaches children that violence is the solution to problems. It also teaches children that it is okay to use physical violence to control other people and situations. Spanking teaches kids that it is okay to hit the people you love. Spanking teaches them nothing that will be useful or helpful in their adult lives or that will help them to communicate with other people.

15 Lessons I’ve Learned about Writing So Far – Guest Post by Yecheilyah Ysrayl…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

I’ve been writing for eighteen years now and publishing books for ten. Over the years I have learned so much. Sometimes it can be overwhelming as you’ll begin to feel as if you are always two steps behind. That’s how I’ve felt lately. There’s so much to learn and to understand that I often feel I’ll never know enough. Then I realized that’s the whole point. The person who stops learning is an empty person.

I present to you 15 things I’ve learned so far in my journeys. It was difficult to downsize to a 15-item list but I managed it. The top five things are the last five at the bottom. It will seem that some of these things should be further down the line. That’s because the most important lessons I’ve learned are not about just writing alone but also how I’ve changed or grown as a person…

Finding Your Inner Strength

simple Ula

Life is pretty demanding. We all have responsibilities we have to fulfill, risks we have to navigate, mistakes we have to get past. The key to coming out better on the other side is inner-strength, but it’s not exactly something that most of us are taught to cultivate.

Okay, I am ranting aren’t I? My apologies, I get so emotional about child abuse and today’s blog is about protecting our children from sexual abuse. I am now a parent and these things drive me to be a vicious mama bear because no-one wants any harm to befall their children. Children are precious, mostly vulnerable and as parents we need to be diligent about protecting them. The crazy thing is children are abused by the people we love and trust the most.

Why does it matter so much to us what people think or say about us? Why do our lives have to be fueled by the desire to gain recognition of any sort? I was reading a blog post by a friend of mine nearly a week ago, and there was a part where he wrote (paraphrased) : ” We live in a world where people give to the needy or help people in the hope that someone will take a picture and it will go viral.” Why do we have to be mean to people just because we won’t ever cross paths with them again?

Popularity Calamities


Lets talk about popularity. what is popularity? In my definition, popularity is the act of being known by everyone which leads to being admired and supported by many people.
