Storytelling was a way of teaching children the values of life. Stories have morals that teach children what to do and what not to do. It was a good method that was used by San parents. Children were taught how to live in the bush and what to do if they come across an animal that could harm them. Storytelling was also used as a life lesson for kids, children were shown what could happen to them if they did certain things that they were not supposed to do.

Some stories were more serious than others. Some stories were told just for fun when children were at home sitting around the fire. Growing up listening to stories was fun, it helped a lot, when faced with challenges in life. It was an exciting moment when Grandmother started telling stories and children were up late listening to stories.
