  1. The African girl is taught to be a wife from the moment she begins to walk. The African culture teaches girls to put her ‘husband’ before herself. So when they are taught how to talk to your man, how to cook for your man and so many more ‘how-tos’ they kinda want to get that man fast. Also, the AfriRead more

    The African girl is taught to be a wife from the moment she begins to walk. The African culture teaches girls to put her ‘husband’ before herself. So when they are taught how to talk to your man, how to cook for your man and so many more ‘how-tos’ they kinda want to get that man fast. Also, the African girl is made to see marriage as a reward. ‘If you act right, you are going to get you a husband’, how many times have you heard that or something close to that? So when they finally get the reward, they don’t want to loose it.

  3. Tough love instills fear in children. Once fear is introduced in a relationship, it is easier to control the weaker party. It is not only in African homes that fear is instilled, look at the Bible, apparently if you don’t abide the whole wrath of God as described in Revelation, will befall you. So tRead more

    So to answer your question if it works, yes it does. I am so sure I went to school and put on a sweater not because I liked it, because I feared what my parents would do to me.
    Do I think it is right? To some point, yes. Sometimes it is very difficult to seat down with a child and explain the situation with them, so I think dictating your way, as a parent on raising them will work. However, I think parents should learn to apologize and explain their actions. Maybe that way, a child will feel more loved and considered.

    In my opinion, the ministry of education has played it’s part. More people are getting the basic education and higher education. So I wouldn’t think that having universities get their graduants employed is in their hands.
    However, having so many unemployed people in the country simply shows that the economy is not growing as fast as the population. Thousands of people graduate every year all waiting to replace people in their jobs. This is what I mean, to get a degree takes at least 4 years, to get a retirement takes at least 25 years. You get the point?
    It is more practical if universities reduce their intakes, maybe if there are fewer graduates, the quality of education will increase.

  5. Yes. Sexual harrasment is not right, so it racism. So if they allow the white lady to racially attack the black man, then they have a no problem with sexual harrasment, they have a problem with the black man.

  6. China has been the economic superpower. But we didn’t necessarily pay attention because the west has not only the economic powers but also the military power. So now when the military has nothing to do, China is now flexing. It may for sometime since recession may not hit them as bad as USA.
