Mike Mondo opens up about his relationship with father 

 

Classic 105’s Mike Mondo got candid about his father in a rare moment while speaking candidly about why some dad’s can’t leave their job titles at work.

 

My father was a dictator back in the day. It was his way or the highway, unajua wale walikuwa wanasema if I am right I am right even if I am wrong I am right.

He was a chief scientist, a marine biologist, one of the few in Kenya in the 80’s.

‘He was one hundred percent human’  Juliani honors Bob Collymore

If you are still stuck at the Marine Scientist bit wondering what that is, read the job description below.

Marine scientists research the sea and study its interactions with its organisms, sea floors, coastal areas and the atmosphere. Marine science is a broad discipline, so many choose to specialise in a particular field such as a particular species.

Quite a job right?

This is a side we haven’t seen of the hunky presenter although he speaks freely about being a father to his adorable daughter.

His background with his father has pretty much what it has to do with how he raises his children.

You know there was time I was in nursing school so even when you get home you feel good and because of the respect you are put on a pedestal and you see when you come hoke you are asked why are you coming at this time eh!

‘If it wasn’t for my wife, things wouldn’t be like this right now’ – Jimmy Gathu reveals

Well Kabi had something to add on to that saying that his perspective about marriage was different and that having married the love of his life was the best thing that could have happened to him.

He added that when getting into a relationship with someone should be so important that that person knows your past well enough to help you make a better future and that is what Milly did for him.

In his words he said;

Growing up in Kayole I never thought I would get married in a church.

I knew I would get married but my perspective was getting married but if it would fail one could always opt out but she changed that narrative.

Even during the proposal I was very emotional but I thought I had to be strong because it was live on television.

I had to keep my composure but I was so happy I couldn’t even keep calm.

‘Love deeply’ – Terryanne Chebet reveals biggest lessons she has learnt this year

Kabi wa Jesus who is also known as Pastor Kanyosto was quick to add that

We were friends for 4 years before we dated, 3 years after we dated and now we are in to marriage so in relationships, you have to build them over time.

For the person who is looking to get into marriage, take your time,  there is no rushing getting married.

Just get to know this person and then you can go ahead to get to getting into a relationship with that person.

They also added that when you get into marriage, you do not have to always be the one expecting things.

That apart from compromise, one had to also be the one to give, that giving without expecting was one of the ultimate things one had to know.

This is what they had to add;

The other thing is when you are getting into a relationship, is that you have to be ready to give and not to receive.

In every relationship you are getting into go in there to give

If it is love-give,

if it is time- give.

When you do not do that , the only thing that will be on your mind is what I’m receiving instead, while it should be what can I give.

5 Reasons why first impressions matter when going to see your in-laws

Maybe you have for a long time avoided meeting up with your fiancee’s family. Well truth is, first impressions can make or break a relationship.

All we are trying to say is that there is better reason to impress them now before you know, they finally become future in laws.

This is the first time they are meeting the guy or the lady they may be dealing with for decades. It’s a big moment

There are reasons why first impressions matter.

We have highlighted why this is the case,

1. Show of commitment

Most of the times when they get to see your partner, it’s a sign that you want to commit to their child.

That is a sign that they will be seeing you for a long while, if not forever.

This improves the relationship that you may be trying to build with your in laws and this first step is very important.

Spouses

2. It is a judge of character

Most the times, when the in laws are meeting you for the first time, they simply want to know who you are.

Questions here and there from them may deduce the kind of person that you are.

Well in laws may tend to push buttons once in  a while, but basically all they want is to get to know you better.

Freaky! Doctors remove a 5-year horn from a farmers thumb

3. In laws influence your partner

Now this is the part I would want to insist on.

Making good relationships with your in-laws is very important.

This is because , no matter how connected you are to your partner, they may have an upper hand in influencing them.

This however should not keep you off balance from making that decision to see them, creating that good connection and balance between the two of you could go a long way.

Truly Freaky: KOT amazed by how similar Pastor Burales ‘twin’ looks

4. They will be around you

Planning forever with your partner means planning forever with the family as well.

This only means that they will be around you for as much time as possible.

Through out the meeting stages, it is important to create a good rapport with them because this not only means a relationship with your partner,  it means a future relationship with their whole family.

Thus you need to have a good relationship with them before that life time.

in laws

5. You just genuinely want them to like you

Is this not everyone’s hope?

To just be liked and loved by the family of the person you want to spend forever with ?

On that first meeting above everything, all we want is to make that first connection that will last.

How do you deal with a financially irresponsible spouse Maina asks

 

Women and their money spending habits formed the basis for the morning conversation Tuesday morning with Maina asking listeners

Is your relationship suffering because your partner is a heavy borrower? 

A man desperate to save his wife’s handling of finances moved Maina Kageni.

He told Maina

‘Our relationships are suffering because of these money apps. The government should consider closing them.’  These are the complains that Maina received from men this morning.

Most of the men were of opinion that most of the ladies take loans that are beyond their ability when it comes to pay back. They borrow money for luxury that at times one cannot be accountable for the money breakdown. Some go to an extent of giving out their properties such as laptops, computers, televisions and phones which they later lose because they are unable to pay.

One of the men who called said, ‘my wife can spend a lot of money but she can not even show a shoe lace she bought.’

‘I usually thought that women paid their loans back on time,‘ Maina said. This however was not the case as per what the callers were saying. One of the money lenders who called confirmed that 80% of his customers were women.

‘I have given my boyfriend pocket money worth 150k in 8 weeks’ Stacy

He revealed

Most of these ladies borrow money to enhance their own looks like going to salon not even for family use.

They bring their collateral to him and then he never see’s them again hence he ends up selling the items.

One should borrow money that they are able to pay back and be used in a responsible way, he told Maina.

Th ladies also contributed tot he topic.

One said that even though they borrowed this money they also know how to save. Most of the time they borrowed the money they used it in chamas. One of the lady callers said, Maina the competitions is stiff among us ladies. I once had to borrow money to buy a wig that i saw someone with.

Other callers were of opinion that the money apps are of help especially when used in a reasonable way.

‘My dad told me to prostitute myself and earn some pocket money ‘Cries city woman

Other comments were;

I borrowed money to buy a car and later own paid back. One should borrow money and pay it back on time and nowadays a car is not luxury.

Most of these ladies borrow money to enhance their own looks like going to salon not even for family use.

One of the comments that she received in 2018 questioned why she could not have children and though she ended up deleting the comment, she had a response saying,

People will have an opinion over everything, over children.

Today I saw a comment and deleted it because this guy commented on my Instagram and he says

‘When are you going to get pregnant, you’re getting old

‘I wish you nothing but death’ Daughter tells mother

A campus lady confessed to her mother that she wished her nothing but death because she felt her mother was not supportive enough to cater for her needs.

The girl believes a mother should support her child’s financial needs regardless. She let us in on her thoughts about her dispute with the mum.

She said

I hate you so much and I wish you nothing but death. Since I set my foot in campus you have done nothing but making my life miserable. At times I even wonder whether you are my real mother or I was a mistake in your life.

If I was a misfortune you could not have allowed me to this world to suffer. Did you forget abortion is there? I just pray that you could just vanish so that I know my suffering is due to your absence.

I swear I can just strangle you with my hands and live with that guilt of relieve.

This bitter lady uttered these words to her mother because she thought that she was not supportive enough to her needs.

She said the mother literally refused to pay her rent which led to her being thrown out of the house. Her mother is employed hence she saw no need for her not to cater for her basic needs.

Police probe murder of High court clerk attached to Justice Hellen Omondi

This led to her thinking of killing her mother because she was of no use to her life.

I rather suffer when you are dead than when you are alive, she told her mother.

The lady in question says that her mother was not proud of her going to University. She thinks that that is the reason why her mother hates her. The lady describes her mother to be the worst being that cannot relate well with people.

Family cries for justice over UN employee who murdered their daughter

The friends to the girl in question tried to talk to her but it seems she had made up her mind.

The fact remains that no matter what, she would still remain her mother but the lass rejected this statement.

We hope they can get past their differences and heal the mother-daughter relationship.

How to celebrate Mother’s day without your mother

Not everyone will be able to enjoy the physical presence of their mom as we mark Mothers Day this coming weekend.

She may have passed on, or she may be living far away or have abandoned her family.

For these reasons, we might not want to celebrate this special day but that shouldn’t be the case because no matter what, a mother will always hold that special connection to you.

Just celebrate her.

Here are some of the ways you could celebrate Mothers day, all of them may not work for you but one or two may help you get through the day.

1. Make one of her favorite foods

We all have childhood memories that always involve food. Make her favorite recipe and use that in remembrance of your mother.

It will remind you of the good times and that will put a smile on your face.

friends

Fun things to do with your mother for mother’s day!

2. Send a gift to yourself that will remind you of her

Did she love roses, cake, chocolates, ice-cream, perfume or that cute watch?

Send yourself a gift that will remind you of her every-time you hold it close to you.

3. Visit one of her favorite places

Did she love the movies, travelling, picnics or hiking? By doing one of the things she loved to do, it may help you feel more closely connected to her.

This may help you connect in a deeper way by seeing things through her eyes.

4. Treat Mother’s Day like it is and acknowledge the day

By accepting this day, it means that you are healing and that you are allowing yourself to feel all the emotions that come with this day.

1. Take a mini vacation

Most of the times our mothers are always busy trying to make everything work in our homes.

Take her out for mini road-trip or vacation to let her relax and simply to make her feel special on that mini trip. It’s her day and she needs all the rest and relaxation she can get while at it.

3. Go see a movie

For instance you could take her for a movie and just make sure she has the time of her life.

4. Plan a picnic

A little relaxation for a mother goes a long way and a picnic to just cook and spoil her is a perfect idea to make this work.

Take her for that mini picnic lunch and just make sure that she has fun but above all she gets all the love and relaxation she will need.

Six steps any woman facing divorce MUST take

 

 

London leading divorce lawyer, Lisa Pepper of Osbornes Law has revealed there are three important areas to take care of: finances, children and evidence.

And she said that you shouldn’t wait to come to a final decision with your partner, you should act straight away to be prepared if the worst happens.

‘I often wish clients had come to see me six months earlier, when divorce was only a possibility, as there are practical steps clients could take to protect themselves,’ she told Femail.

 

1. DON’T CUT BACK ON SPENDING

It’s counterintuitive at a time when you may want to save your pennies, but if you think a split is on the cards, don’t cut back on expenditure.

Both parties will be required to produce a budget in order for the Court to establish if spousal maintenance needs to be paid.

In cutting back beforehand, you are essentially helping the other party say you ‘need’ less money coming in each month.
You can also protect yourself by ensuring that your laptop/smartphone/anything with financial information on is covered by a password, and keeping all printed documents secure.

Equally, resist the temptation to snoop on your spouse – in recent years the Family Court has been much tougher on people who do.

2. SPEND MORE TIME WITH CHILDREN

If you are the main breadwinner and see much less of your kids, keep a diary of the time you do spend with them – whether days out, or helping with maths homework. It all counts.

If you work full-time, consider if you could work at home one day a week, or reduce your hours to see more of your children, and cut down on any hobbies that take you away from them. In short, do anything you can to spend more time with your kids.

3. ENCOURAGE A RETURN TO WORK

If your spouse stays at home, do what you can to support them returning to work. If they want a career change, encourage a vocation that is lucrative. A psychotherapist or interior designer is less likely to be able to be self-sufficient.

Teaching can be a good option for a parent, given the childcare needed in the summer holidays, however you can also discuss other childcare options.

4. THINK BEFORE YOU TEXT

It’s all about creating a good impression for a judge who does not know you outside of the court room.

So, when you communicate, think before you write. Any text messages, emails, or even social media posts can be used against you, so avoid writing anything in anger.

 

By all means, have a vent and write it down, but don’t hit send until the heat of the moment has passed. It’s often preferable to have a face to face conversation.

5. CUT DOWN ON ALCOHOL

At a time of stress, it is easy to reach for a glass of wine or two in the evenings to help you unwind. This can add up and in children cases, you can face allegations of alcohol or substance abuse making you a risk to your children.

If you submit to testing (and it’s difficult not to, as the Judge will be very suspicious otherwise) then a hair sample is taken (blood and urine can be also).

One centimeter of hair growth is roughly equivalent to a months’ consumption; so the longer your hair, the further back the testing can go.

6. DO NOT ACCEPT ABUSE

Finally, and importantly, take action if you are in an abusive relationship. No one should suffer abuse at the hands of a loved one. No one has the right to abuse. If you’re in that situation, get help now.

Keep a diary of any verbal or hysical abuse and don’t be abusive yourself. Go for a walk to cool down, if it comes to it.

If you are being physically abused, go to see your doctor and the police. Contemporaneous third-party records of what’s been going on are good evidence too, otherwise it’s your word against theirs.

Highlights of the study

– Scientists think that whether or not someone can become suicidal is tied to their genes, environment and experience

– Previous studies have suggested, separately, that psychiatric disorders like bipolar disorder increases suicide risks and run in families

– New National Institutes of Health research found that families with a pattern of suicide attempts also tend to have social anxiety in common

– The researchers believe that these tendencies could help identify at-risk people who would otherwise slip between the cracks

Suicide may run in families that tend to suffer from mental illnesses, a new study finds.

The new study, conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), suggests that families in which social anxiety is more common may also be at greater risk for suicide attempts.

The researchers believe that this knowledge could help doctors catch at-risk individuals who might otherwise slip between the cracks of prevention efforts.

In the grander scheme of health research, it’s only recently that we have discovered that a handful of rare diseases are caused by a one or several specific genes.

And it is even more recently that we’ve begun to gain a rudimentary understanding of mental illness.

Suicide risks are still poorly understood and often overlooked.

As best we can tell, mental illnesses are predicated on a perfect storm of genetic and environmental factors.

The NIH recently discovered that major depression, bipolar disorder, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and schizophrenia all share some genes that put some at higher risk of the disorders than others.

And some of these mental disorders can be predictors of suicide attempt and death risks, too.

They also tend to run in families.

To investigate whether suicide runs in families, researchers at the NIH conducted the largest study to-date interviewing family members of 119 adults and their families about their histories of mental illness and suicide attempts and deaths.

Prior research has shown links between various psychiatric disorders and suicidal tendencies, and psychiatric disorders themselves do tend to run in families.

But the new study uncovered new patterns common to members of the same families.

The researchers found that when suicide seemed to run in a family, so did feelings of social anxiety – a trend that hadn’t been established previously.

Links between the two were even more potent when family members also had a psychiatric disorder, most notably, bipolar disorder.

These parallel tendencies suggested to the scientists that ‘people with these traits could have greater reactivity to social loss or disruption.’

Because social anxiety is fueled by difficulty processing negative emotions, the finding suggests that both shared social conditioning and inherited brain functions may be at play in introducing suicide risks into a family.

Or, these family members could have shared an outsize amount of trauma and stress in their shared pasts – making them more vulnerable to suicidal ideation.

Family patterns are hardly a one-size-fits-all diagnostic tool, however,  the researchers wrote.

On the other hand, their discovery suggested that including a finer analysis of family histories, personalities and experiences might help doctors catch individuals at-risk for suicide that otherwise would have slipped through the cracks.

‘The broader association of mental disorders with familial environment suggests that risk research that focuses solely on individual-level biomarkers, susceptibility genes, or neural architecture may be unable to identify suicide risk without accounting for the contextual association with vulnerability to proximal life challenges,’ they wrote.

Heartbroken baby screams in agony after father shaves off dreadlocks

A baby broke down in tears after seeing his dad for the first time without dreadlocks.

A video shared on Twitter by @aristew, has gone viral.

The 16-second clip sees the adorable baby sitting in a high-chair when his father walks in to show him his new haircut.

As the father says ‘hi’, the baby looks up at his dad and sees him without dreadlocks for the first time ever.

When he realizes his father’s long hair is gone, the baby erupts into tears.

He can be seen cradling his own head while sobbing uncontrollably.

It is understood that the father of the child previously had his hair styled in dreadlocks, and was unveiling his new trim haircut to his son for the first time when the funny incident occurred.

Taken by a woman, most likely the mother or a relative of the child, the clip then pans over to the side of the room.

As the father of the child enters, the baby can be seen turning his head to look at him.

The man can be heard saying ‘hi’ as the adorable little boy stares up at him.

And although the baby might have initially been looking forward to seeing his father, things quickly changed.

Locking eyes on his dad, the adorable little boy realizes that his dad no longer has dreadlocks.

Instead, he is sporting a short, tight haircut.

And when the child realizes that his father has a new look, he isn’t happy about it.

The tiny baby turns his head back toward the camera and lets out a sigh before he holds his head and begins crying.

He then begins sobbing uncontrollably, before turning around to take another look at his dad’s new hairdo.
