Best of Kfm Mornings with Darren, Sherlin & Sibs
What's your breakup equation? How long should it take to get over someone?
Everyone has an opinion on how long it should take to get over someone after a breakup. Darren believes that you shouldn't go into a new relationship with emotional baggage and that one month for every year is sufficient time to move on. Unless of course, the relationship ended because of a death or cheating with a close friend or relative - then the period would be longer. Sibs agrees with the idea of a breakup equation, however, her math is slightly different to Darren's: three months for every year together. Sherlin says no to both equations. She feels that it's best to follow your heart - you'll know when you're ready!

It's practically October, which means the silly season is not too far off. Many of us have been hard at work throughout the year and are looking forward to our December break. If you, like us, need that extra little push to get you through the next few weeks, take a listen to this clip by Angela Lee Duckworth. Angela left her high-flying job in consulting to teach math to grade sevens in a New York public school. She quickly realized that IQ wasn't the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. In her TED Talk, she explains her theory of "grit" as a predictor of success.

What's happening at the courthouse? Foster children and a property scam26 September 2019 | 5 Minute Listen
Every week, Rameez Khan of Kfm Mornings makes his way to courthouses across Cape Town to hear their stories. This week he spent time at the Paarl Magistrates Court. There he met with a foster mother whose adoption case has been languishing for 6 years. She explained that the adoption process can take up to 18 years, and biological parents are free to change their minds at any time. It's hard on foster parents but the upside is that the kids are safe and not in the system. He also met with another woman who had been scammed when she bought a house for R18,000, 11 years prior. She did not sign any paperwork and the house was never transferred to her name. She's in the midst of sorting out the matter in civil court.
