This lesson also helps the parents to understand that without love there is no good relationships. Overview When Manuela and Lorna reached the community, they found seven men seated waiting for them, they were welcomed and they sat down, while seated Manuela and Lorna noticed that those men were no happy from the look in their face, so one of the Kibo staff asked the community members that , what are some of the problems in this community that press members a lot? When Manuela asked them that question, it really triggered their minds and they started talking one by one for example one man said that the problems he always face in his family is , his wife dose not respect him as a man in a home simply because of woman Emancipation, that his wife no longer listens to him because she has small business and she thinks that she can do everything, another man also complained that the children are his problem, that for him he has surrendered he no longer discipline this children because if he dose so , the mother of theses children becomes very annoyed with him. But all in all majority of the men where complaining about women and children, after discussing this issues with the men the women also came in and Manuela asked the women to, one of the woman said that, the problems which she faces is that, her husband who was also in that meeting have left all the responsibilities in her hands which is not good, then another woman also said that, men are very rude to the children, that instead of taking harmoniously they beat, kick and even they use Volga wards which is not good for children, then one of the aged women also said that children’s dressing cord is so poor in their community they requested Manuela and Lorna to talk to the children at school about the dressing cord. After all that Manuela and Lorna reacted towards their complain.
