Astral Foods Powerful Lifeline Rescued World of Birds

Brent and I had the privilege to be invited by Astral Foods, one of South Africa’s leading poultry producers, to celebrate their new partnership with World of Birds.  We heard about the amazing work they have done thus far to assist World of Birds and their continued commitment to the sanctuary.  It also gave us an opportunity to explore the bird park – which I have to confess was my first time. Apart from dropping my youngest daughter off outside of the sanctuary during her grade field trip – but I suppose that one time doesn’t count.  I know I’m such a bad Capetonion.  This gem with its tropical setting is the largest bird park in Africa and is situated in Hout Bay.  After exploring the park; we had a scrumptious lunch at the Riverside Boutique Hotel in Hout Bay.

Raise your son to be honourable and respectful

Remember that 80’s song by The Temptations – “Treat her like a lady”. Yip that one with the catchy beat that you can sing along to whilst doing the dishes or sitting in your car.  Ok, so perhaps you millennials won’t know the song but you can go Google it here.

The point I’m getting at is that the lyrics of the song resonates with me as I have a chivalrous husband. Common courtesy, kindness and respect are things women crave for in today’s life.  Values and convictions are guided by an ever changing world and what society prescribes. But shaping attitudes, beliefs and values at the foundation level will ensure that it is carried throughout life. It should be both men and women’s responsibility to raise children who respect themselves and others. Most importantly shifting our focus to raising boys. Chivalry, honour and respect has to be taught from a young age.
