    Uzazi #24 Parenting Adult Children

    Uzazi #24 Parenting Adult Children

    In Kenya we are observing more and more children leaving home later - in their late twenties and beyond. This is partially driven by the amount of time taken to finish school and properly establish oneself financially. But how do parents relate with children who are legally adult, but still live at home? Catherine Waiyaki shares her experience as a young parent and how it drove her to invest in learning and later helping others learn, how to parent effectively. She shares practical wisdom to help you navigate the years when your child is no longer a child.

    Uzazi #20 Get rid of the small things that add up to make big obstacles

    Uzazi #20 Get rid of the small things that add up to make big obstacles

    Parents are never just parents, or only parents. They are also running a business, or working a job. They are siblings and caregivers to their parents. They are neighbours and team members somewhere. Their lives are full of action. That's why they cannot afford to spend time trying to kill a mosquito rather than sleeping and rejuvenating themselves for the next meaningful activity.


    Today's podcast talks about the little things that add up to big things and so take us away from the meaningful work we do as parents.

    Uzazi #19 Inspiration from Eliud Kipchoge

    Eliud Kipchoge's sub 2 hour marathon run has gone into the history books. While parenting is not a race, there are parallels and lessons that we can draw from Kipchoge's run. Vision, focus , preparation, support, pace setters, and, most importantly, running the race. Today's podcast draws inspiration from this event.
