Members of Tell it Moms, an all women group that began as a social group that discusses women related issues have held a conference in Koforidua to educate themselves on various issues of concern to women.
The Eastern Regional branch of the group, known as Tell it Moms Zone 17 took advantage of the holiday to have an official launch as well as educate members on various subjects.
Speaking on Challenges in Marriage and how to overcome them, Lawyer Mrs Nana Gyankomah, a member of the Tell it Moms Zone 17 took time to educate the ladies on how to have peaceful marriages.
She revealed that, whatever men do during dating in repeated is marriage. “The problem is that, you think your man would change when you get married, what makes you think he would change?” She quizzed.
Touching on how women should respond to men who cheat in a way that would save their marriages and not ruin them further, “As a woman, you should learn to put your message across” Adding that, “Communication is key, the man is head of the house, submission is difficult, but you should learn to submit at all times, not sometimes. Even when he is wrong, you must know how to communicate to him on the wrong he has done”
Lawyer Gyankomah stated that, in all situations, wives should respect their husbands.
“Don’t let issues overtake your responsibility, even when he is wrong, you have every reason to be angry, but there is a way to do it, if you don’t handle issues properly, you would destroy the evidence that you have”
She advised participants present not to leave their homes to fight other women who they suspect are their husbands’ “sidechicks”
According to her, “when you do that, you have gone outside your jurisdiction”
Other topics treated at the gathering include “causes of Home Accidents and its prevention”
“Healthy eating and how to prepare quickie healthy snacks” and “Substance abuse and its effects”
