Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Model Your Children When They Are Still Young

Rita and Jimmy had two children called Abel and Winnie. They used to abuse others and have no manners. The parent were not aware of their children behaviours. If you tell them they dinied that you are not like their children. The children grew up together and played together. They also went to church for worship. One day, they decided to play as pastor was preaching. At the end of the service Rita and Jimmy punished the children and told them to be singing, praying and listening during church service. The church is a holy place where christians worship God. It is the house of God. It is not like any other house they now realize the problem and remembered where the house girl told them they have bad manners but they refused. Since that day Abel and Winnie changed completely. Everyone was amazed with them and felt happy for their change.
