A father should be a major influence in his kids’ lives, irrespective of how many other people out there contribute to the person he becomes. So, how does a father ensure that they have the strongest influence on their little glories? Check yourself out with the 13 points given below
When you love your wife, or the mother of your son, you are showing him how to treat his mother, his sisters, and all the women he will meet in his life. This will set the foundation for the relationships he will have later in his life.
The best teacher is failure. The best type of failure to learn from is someone else’s.
When your son sees you fail, and handle the failure well, he sees that it is okay to make mistakes and that mistakes can be great teachers. A boy who is not afraid of making mistakes will grow into a man positioned to accept and conquer great challenges.
You may or may not be the boss at work. You may or may not be the pastor or minister at church. You may or not be a leader in your community. But you are the leader of your family. Your son needs to see true leadership in your home.
He needs to see you leading by serving. When he sees you leading by serving, he will better understand leadership and be able to more effectively lead versus follow his peers. As he grows, he will better lead his family, lead at work, lead at church, and lead in his community.
As you fulfill all the different roles you have, you may be pulled in multiple directions. He needs you to be present in his education, in his social life, in all areas of his life.Some areas are not intended for mom only, or for his friends only. Your presence in all areas will give him the support he needs.
You may be a mathematics wizard. And your son may not be able to multiply two by two, nor care that he can’t. No matter what choices your son makes, he needs you to love him even if they are different than yours.
Even when they are wrong choices. Your love and guidance will open the door to trust and acceptance that build your relationship. And it will build his self-esteem.
“I love you, son.” “I’m proud of you, daughter.” “You are amazing, daughter.” “I know you can do it, son.” “That was an amazing play you made!”
When you discipline your son, you set boundaries and expectations. He is going to make mistakes just like you did as a child and just like you do now.
A daughter needs her father to be actively interested in her life.
For example, if she is interested in collecting coins, take her to coin shows. Use the Internet to learn about rare coins and talk about them. Is your daughter talented in the any sports, such as volleyball?
Whether she wants to play or just enjoys watching the games, become an enthusiastic fan and supporter! Show your daughter that you are interested in her life by learning more about it and trying to become a part of it.
The first relationship a daughter experiences is the one between her mother and father.
However, a father that displays physical affection, respect, and a true partnership with his wife provides an incredible example that his daughter will want to mirror in her own life.
Even though a father may not always agree with his daughter, she needs to know you will support her.
When a father fully and wholeheartedly supports his daughter, she will develop strong self-esteem and a positive self-image.
This doesn’t mean that you always have to agree with her, but show her that while you might not agree with a choice she is making, you will always believe in her as a person and have confidence in her abilities.
When your daughter does come to you and discusses personal issues and problems, she needs to know that you will treat them with respect and confidence. They shouldn’t become dinner-table conversation with the rest of the family.
A father should be the spiritual head of a household and should take charge of his children’s religious education. Pray with your daughter! Don’t be shy about bringing the Lord into your conversations with her.
Many kids today lack a positive male role model in their lives. A father is the first man in a girl’s life that she will intimately know. A father is the first hero a the boy knows. Her father sets the standard for all other men in her life, and a positive role model will help her choose a good husband in the future.
Take a moment for some self-reflection. Are there any habits you need to break? Are there some areas of your own life that could use a “spiritual overhaul” and prayer?
When your daughter sees that you are willing to examine your own life and make changes when necessary, you provide the best example she could ever have of accepting responsibility for her actions. Same goes for your son.
Several Kenyans gathered together on Sunday May 17, 2015 in an occasion known as ‘CELEBRATE’ to celebrate one of their own, Mr. Geoffrey Sankale Soyiantet popularly known as ‘Connection 33.’ Mr Soyiantet has been identified as one of the most outstanding and selfless member of the St Louis Community. Mr. Soyiantet aka ‘Connection 33′ has a business on Cargo bay where he majors in Sales and Marketing of all Kenyan services.
“What Geoffrey has done no one person or group has done.” Said one of the guest called Mr.Kirika. Everyone who was present endorsed this message. ”Geoffrey is a selfless man who respects and interacts with all. You will find him running around with kids and the next time he is story telling with the elderly. He mentors, coaches and encourages the youth to reach their highest potential.” Many people praised him for his level of trust. New resident to Saint Louis, Mr. Samuel Mwangi praised Geoffrey and said he has become a stepping stone to new residents and helps them settle.
Susan Gitema was emotional when she shared how Geoffrey has assisted her and her colleagues with various needs without complaining or getting tired. Speaking on behalf of the elderly who in St Louis are called the ‘Group Nine’ Susan said that Geoffrey is the kind of a person one knows for sure he will answer your call with a smile even at the wee hours of the night to send money or load airtime to call Kenya.
Agatha Kinuthia I9, a college student and studying to be a gynecologist, represented the youth and students. She expressed her gratitude to Geoffrey and said that he has been a great resource and a mentor. She told the gathering that Geoffrey offers opportunities for youth to develop leadership and accumulate community service thus making it easy to qualify for college scholarship.
The ceremony was held at Geoffrey’s residence where he was honored with various gift, prayers and words of appreciation. He was also honored with a gift certificate with all the signatories of those present.Visiting preacher Bishop Chege in his word of encouragement (Roman 13:6-7) told the crowd to honor people when they are ‘due’ not when they are ‘past due’. He said that the deeds of Geoffrey resembled those of a good man in the bible called Cornelius.
All the people in the gathering commended his wife Purity. Behind every successful man there is a strong and encouraging woman. Purity has been the pillar holding Geoffrey and their two beautiful girls. Everybody affirmed that Purity is an understanding woman and a great help to the husband. Geoffrey is married to Purity and they have two children –Abbieand Soila.
CELEBRATE is a movement that was formed by Jane Gichane and Zellipah Githui of St Louis in 2011 with the ultimate purpose to appreciate individuals who touch and influence lives of other people. In most cases as Kenyans we usually appreciate people and tell of what they have done or how they have touched our lives when they are either in great need or in their memorial services. CELEBRATE was formed to appreciate people when they are still alive and energetic and in so doing that motivates them to continue doing better. CELEBRATE does not celebrate already designated leaders or appointed leaders of organization, but rather focuses on leaders withouttitles who reach out to the community. The closing statement from the founders was CELEBRATE never ends. Everyday you have an opportunity to celebrate someone and tell them thank you for all they do.Why don’t you pick up your phone today and call Geoffrey and other people who have touched your lives and just let them know?

A Nairobi court on Wednesday issued a warrant of arrest against journalist Jeff Koinange and businessman Tony Gachoka for disobeying its orders.
Nairobi Senior Resident Magistrate Maisy Chesang issued the arrest order after Mr Koinange and Mr Gachoka failed to appear in court to answer charges of discussing the conduct of a company in the media despite a court order barring the same.
The offence was allegedly committed on ‘Jeff Koinage Live’ show that the journalist hosts on KenyaTelevision Network(KTN)
“A warrant of arrest is issued against the two respondents for failing to honuor the summons to appear in court. The warrant will be effected through the complainants’ advocates,” ruled the magistrate.
The decision was a result of a complaint by businessman Jimi Wanjigi, Mr Sani Mbui Wanjigi and Kwacha Group of Companies Limited.
They had obtained orders on March 20 barring Mr Koinange, KTN and the Standard Media Group from broadcasting or publishing alleged defamatory statements concerning them and the company.
Despite serving the order, the three complained that Mr Koinange invited Mr Gachoka on his show on April 1 and went ahead to discuss what they were barred from broadcasting.
According to their lawyer Nicholas Nyamai, the broadcast has caused the companymassive losses and undermined the court’s authority.
He wants the company paid a total of Sh60 million as compensation for defamation.
The case is scheduled for hearing on June 5.
