Dear Nuray,

Thank you for all your informative comments, I'm inspired by you.

After they leave prisons, they need financial support so they can execute their lives and prepare a good future for their children. When they are free, they also need economic freedom. We should also organize various business skills training sessions to make their own economic freedoms sustainable.

I will also transfer the experiences I learned in different business lines of the service sector. This will provide opportunities for them to communicate effectively and to learn about the occupations and the positions in the service sector.

We will be using all the possibilities to make them live freely and confidently.

Dear Kairi Kuusema,

Thank you for your valuable comment. You are absolutely right.

The smallest unit of society is family, and individuals may be unable to express themselves, especially to their own family members. Psychological violence may be exposed. The source of these problems, of course, is the lack of education and the awareness of the individuality.

It may be possible to involve prisoners`family members into this project to spread at least peace between the prisoner and her relatives to avoid future conflicts.

Their awareness in communicating with family members will enable them to understand what is happening around them in a real way.

Dear Aida Alvani,

Thank you for this nice comment. This is a very important issue.

Single mothers and children in prison experience a range of emotions such as fear, guilt, confusion or shame at the same time. They are living in fear of being humiliated in society.

Single mothers should take advantage of the power of effective communication in order to increase the power of their personality and their flexibility. When single mothers are able to communicate through a self-confident and self-expressive stance, it is easier for them to get over the problems they are experiencing.

Thus, with effective communication, single mothers who can express themselves effectively and accurately can lead to a happier and safer life in the society.
