#MotownMom: How I Got My Kids to Take School Seriously [video]

A lot of people asked how did I get my kids to take school so seriously and even though I’m not going through a pandemic and home learning with my children, we still had similar practices where they needed to take responsibility for their school.

I wasn’t a helicopter parent, but I was someone who made sure they took their “job” (going to school) very seriously because I felt this prepared them for life.

Their job determined by their performance reports (GPA) and attendance and behavior.
Homework to Housework
Also in this video I talk briefly about:
Problem Solving
My House- My Court – My Laws
Teachers teach / Parents Nurture
Summer School/365 Schooling/ Keeping schedules

Become A Member of the Detroit People’s Food Co-Op #motownmom

DPFC & KAN Books Co-Op Member Mama Hanifa Adjuman Speaking during DPFC Annual Meeting 2019.
For the past several years there has been a movement to change the culture of food in the city of Detroit. Food sovereignty. What does it look like to own what you eat and not have your food be controlled by outside forces? What does it mean to not only be a headcount in a community meeting but a decision maker on what actually happens in the spaces that impact us most like where we get our food.

Today is a great day to affirm sovereignty in our food system. Become a member of the Detroit People’s Food Co-Op or donate to create an opportunity for another Detroiter to become a member as we move us closer to being a city with a community controlled and owned grocery store in the North End neighborhood of Detroit.

#Motownmom #DetroitHomesteading Preparing for the worst and having during the best. [video] Challenging Times Ahead – Stock up! #prepping

Found a great video as a homesteading and prepping reminder to get our homes in order.

Homesteading is not for when it’s bad, but it also saves money even in the good times. I’ve always tried to always been prepared for the worst and I’m glad I was able to help my family when things went bad for them because I did have a surplus at my home to help them out

Let me know your thoughts after you watch the video
