KISWAHILI: MTOTO AKIBEBWA MGONGONI HUANGALIA KISOGO CHA MAMA YAKE.

Chanzo cha methali hiyo, chatokea kwenye ubebwaji wa mtoto ngongoni ambaye huangalia kisogo cha mama yake. Mtu huyo, akibebwa mgononi na mama yake hukiangalia kisogo hicho cha mama yake. Hivyo basi, mtoto huyo atakuwa anakielewa sana kisogo hicho, kwa sababu ya yeye kukiangalia kwa muda mrefu katika maisha yake. Ndiyo maana watu husema kwamba, ‘mtoto akibebwa mgongoni huangalia kisogo cha mama yake.’

Methali hiyo, hulinganishwa kwa mtu yule ambaye huwalea watoto wake kwa kuishi katika maadili mema yeye mwenyewe, katika maisha yake. Mtu huyo, anafahamu kwamba, mtoto huiangalia tabia ya mzazi wake, kwa sababu, maisha ya mtu hufundisha zaidi kuliko maneno yake.

Kwa hiyo basi, mzazi mwenye tabia njema, huwaambukiza tabia hiyo watoto wake, kwa sababu ya wao kuifikiria tabia hiyo kuwa ndiyo nzuri kwa kuiishi. Kwa upande mwingine, mzazi mwenye tabia njema, au mwenye maadili mema, huwarithisha tabia hiyo pia watoto wake ambao humuiga jinsi anavyoishi.

Mtu huyo, huwalea vizuri watoto wake kwa kuishi katika maadili mema yeye mwenyewe, ili awe mfano wa kuigwa katika kuiishi tabia hiyo njema. Yeye huwasimulia watoto wake hao, maneno yenye hekima ya kuwasaidia katika kuishi vizuri na wenzao, maishani mwao. Ndiyo maana yeye huwaambia watu wake hao kwamba, ‘mtoto akibebwa mgongoni huangalia kisogo cha mama yake.’

Methali hiyo, hufundisha watu juu ya kuwalea kwa kuwakuza katika maadili mema watoto wao, ili waweze kuwa mfano wa kuigwa katika kuyaishi maadili yaliyo mema, maishani mwao.

ENGLISH: A BABY CARRIED ON THE BACK LOOKS AT ITS MOTHER’S NAPE.

The source of this saying is the baby that is carried on her mother’s back. When the kid is carried on its mother’s back, it looks at its mother’s nape. Therefore, kids are believed to be very much aware of their mothers’ napes. To describe this kind of awareness to kids, people came with this saying that ‘a baby carried on the back looks at its mother’s nape.’

This saying can be compared to a person who brings up his/her children by living a good life himself/herself. This person tends to behave in a good way thus paving a way for children to emulate him/her. Such a person teaches his/her children through actions, not mere words. He/she seems to hold the view that ‘actions are louder than words.’ The saying also gives an impression that a good parent or well-mannered parent gives such qualities to his/her children who also imitate his/her way of life.

This saying teaches people about nurturing and raising their children morally so that they can become role models in living good values ​​in their lives.
