Afrikan Proverbs teach important life lessons in just a few simple words. Proverbs can be found in every corner of the Afrikan diaspora. Our ancient traditions use these proverbs to teach our children culture, etiquette, and life lessons. These phrases are based on observing nature and using common sense. This makes most proverbs very easy to understand. Parents don't need to lecture children when we know how to use proverbs as teaching tools. Once again, Angela Freeman gives us a wonderful starting point to inspire our children to fully embrace Afrikan cultural norms of decency, respect, and wisdom.
