Inspiring Your Children through the Power of Social Work

Every parent wants to be an inspiration to their children. Every day, you try to be a good example for your children, acting as a moral compass so that they can make good decisions in their personal lives. Although no one is perfect, it is important to be constantly aware of your actions in front of impressionable children. If you are going to go into a career based on improving and enriching the lives of people who need the most help, your children are going to learn a lot of useful lessons as they grow up.
Parents who decide to go back to school often do so in an effort to increase their salaries while giving them more time to spend with their families. Going for your online masters of social work via the Rutgers Online program will not only enrich your life; it will give your children a look at what it takes to make the world keep going around. Show your family from an early age that making a difference is possible through consistent effort.

Leading By Example

You can’t tell your children that they need to be leaders and ambassadors for their friends and school mates if you aren’t giving them specific examples. Sitting down and paying the bills with your children looking on at the dining room table will help them to learn responsibility. Taking them with you when you go to renew your voter registry will show them how to exercise their rights. Going back to school for an online MSW will teach them many lessons in civility, respect, and actually, help them to appreciate what it is that they have at home.

Doing Good Things for Other People Makes You Feel Better

When you work with a specific set of people who have needs that are not being properly met, every step that you take to get them what they require should be considered a blessing for all involved. There are people who don’t know where their next meal will come from and children who don’t know if they will ever have a caring and responsible guardian. People with addiction issues can struggle with applying for jobs as well as staying sober. Whether your outreach efforts consist of asking clients about their personal lives or making strides to help them to meet more tangible goals, your children will see that it feels good to help others.

Showing How Making Sacrifices Pays Off

Not every person that you work with as a social worker is going to have the most positive results. Some will need more specialized help and others will simply disappear off your map right when you are in the middle of working on their cases. On the other hand, there will also be lots of examples of success beyond your wildest dreams. Those are the examples that you will want your children to pay attention to as hard work always pays off in the end.
If you want your children to be filled with pride when they talk about your career, consider taking on a job that focuses on others. Social work isn’t an easy profession, but it does come with benefits that cannot be described in words. Be someone who is giving and selfless if you want to raise healthy and well-balanced children.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
