Like every amazing mother, Mama Emeka ensures her kids are disciplined and hardworking even without putting pressure (in words) on them. Even though she's a poor widow and she couldn't afford expensive gadgets for cooking; she ensured the only charcoal stove she has serves even more than its purpose. How? By telling Emeka to always prepare the charcoal stove.
Her first born Emeka could have refused to learn from this charcoal stove by delegating the work to his siblings, but instead listened and followed his mom's instructions. Doing so, his perspective about life changed. He followed through the whole process and now Emeka is a young successful family man relaying this vital knowledge to his kids.
