This post is for all of the fellas who may have recently purchased a house with their wife or significant other. You both are excited and full of energy to turn that new house that you just purchased into a home. You have the big yard and garage space that you always wanted and she has that amazing walk-in closet and kitchen that she always wanted. Both of…

  1. Having Sex- For this first one, I can attest first hand, this is something that a kid does not want to see. I remember being very young, and it was a Saturday morning. I crawled into my parent’s room, ready to hop in their bed to watch cartoons. When I entered the room, pops was already in hopping mode. Although I didn’t know what was going on, I knew something wasn’t right.
  2. Arguing In Front Of Them- As parents, one thing you should try to avoid is having serious arguments in front of your kids. …

  1. Let Them Be Them- If your kids are shy or like to dress in their batman costume daily, it’s ok. Never force your children to act a certain way or act like you.
  2. Love Them Unconditionally- No matter what your child does or decides to be, make sure you show them love no matter what. Kids are going to screw up and make choices that we as adults might not make. Just keep in mind that you were once a kid also.
  3. Listen To Them- A lot of the time, we can get a sneak peek into the lives of…

  1. Work Husband- This guy and a particular female co-worker argue, stick up for each other, have lunch together, flirt with each other, and then at the end of the day you go home to their real mates. At work, to the untrained eye, a person would swear those two are married.
  2. The Entertainer- This is the guy who keeps the office fun and everyone laughing.
  3. The Shit Starter- This is the guy who goes around the whole office talking shit and getting people riled up. He doesn’t have any bad intentions but he knows how to push everyone’s button.
  4. The…

  3. Show That You Can Pick Up On New Things Fast- When learning something new on the job, make sure that you take great notes. That way, you can go over them at home and practice. …

  1. Look At Her Car To See If It Is Clean- Most of the time, if a woman’s car is always clean, she has a man who is keeping it clean. If you notice that her car is always dirty, especially the rims and tires, then she probably is single.
  2. All Of Her Pictures On Social Media Are Guy-Less- A good way to tell if a woman is single or not is to check out her social media presence. If you do not see any pictures with her and a guy, then she may be single. …
