In a community, conflicts are bound to arise. The desired effect is a timely and conclusive resolution for these conflicts. Leaders in the community are at the forefront as mediators and offer guidance to ensure that matters are resolved.
In a rural village of Kiyega, Tanzania, parents from a local community radio listners group host a discussion on the "freedom of a child to dream." Whose dream should the child follow- his/her own, or the parents'?
Halo Alyson, thanks for raising this important matter on How parents recognise their children dreams , will get the questions to the communities and seek to find out more. And Anne's post too.. Thumbs up, an interesting conversion on what influences the child towards his/her dream after the curiosities have been noted by parents and care gives.
Thanks valeria for raising this question. it is a question that is going to be channeled back to the community in Morogoro for more insight on how dreams are discovered by parents in these communities. parents are supposed to be gurdians to the kids hopes and dream, true valeria.
