Why I work at WRC

My name is Riny Chea and I am 26 years old. I come from Kampong Thom province. I have a big family made up of two older sisters and myself. I have a Bachelor of Law from 2014 from Build Bright University (BBU) in Siem Reap. I attended a Women’s Resource Center (WRC) parenting workshop and learned about parenting and parents as good role models for children. I attended the workshop because WRC was committed to enrolling trainees and my previous organization was a partner. I took the chance to attend. The participants included 1 father, 4 mothers and 2 non-mothers (including me). I realized the workshop was very useful for me, even though I am not yet a mother. I feel happy to have learned how to be a positive mother, how to educate my children and how to enjoy having a family. I was particularly interested in the four paths to having a great family: The establishment of family fun time Educating children without violence Understanding the role a parent Knowing about anger management Parents should not only provide their children with their physical needs, but also with emotional support. When I returned to my community, I spread what I learned to all parents living there. They did not understand properly about the role of the parents and I was happy to help them bring happiness to their children. I saw the lack of education and their struggles with illiteracy. These are enormous concerns for the elimination of violence. I told them that WRC provides workshops containing pictures, videos, etc. which reflect the consequences of enacting violence...
