African Proverb: On the cud-chewing Goat

When mother goat chews on the grass, her kids watch and learn

A goat is generally known as an animal with a unique way of chewing the cud. The kids watch the mother goat as she chew grass and picks the peculiarities. In no time, they will start to chew grass like the mother. This proverb affirms that we are mirrors little ones behold.

For instance, any child that grew to be rude or harsh must have learned/copied that trait from an abusive parent. Observe a respectful child, and you will discover courteous and polite parents in the background.

That is why we must exercise care on how we live because it is the mirror children see.
