#DailyAfricanProverbs takes us to #Kenya

The Proverb says: “When you take a knife away from a child, give him a piece of wood instead.”

The Kenyan proverb speaks volumes about the power of positive reinforcement.

It encourages parents to replace negative behavior with something more constructive and helps instill in children an appreciation for process and craftsmanship.

Giving young ones an alternative outlet to express themselves enables them to develop physical skills and problem-solving abilities.

Ultimately, this proverb serves as an essential lesson in parenting and as a reminder that discipline need not always involve taking something away; you can use positive reinforcements as well.
