Welcome to December on Naija Housewives. This is the holiday period with Christmas, Sallah and Kwanzaa (for those who do that). Here at NH, we are also in Holiday mode, but we realize that this period is not always a festive one for many people. And so our focus this month is LOVING APART.
The holiday season is about family and even if you are not with your loved one this December, there are ways you can still share the holiday together and we intend to explore such ways.
Beyond the holidays, we do know that loving apart is not easy and takes a lot of courage. Couples who love apart often have to deal with issues that are very different from those living together. This month we will touch on those issues. We’ll talk about how to cope when you have to be both Mummy and Daddy to your children and also how to help your children deal with separation anxiety.
Our in-house writer, Ijeamaka will share her story on how she coped when she had to spend Christmas away from her husband and her children.
The men are not left out – and we do have a number of them on NH. We will discuss what they need to know about their homes and their children when their wives are away; sort of a guide for Dads when Mummy is not home.
December on NH is going to be very special and we would love for you to be a part of this. If you have ever loved apart from your spouse we would love to hear from you. How did you fare? What were the most persistent difficulties or challenges you faced and how were you able to cope with the friction of living together again?
If you are not a member of our Facebook community, please join up by liking Naija Housewives on Facebook. There we discuss, share and learn how to be the women we want to be.
We wish you a joyous and festive December!
