Nature Is The Best Teacher

There was a naughty kid who was rude. His parents were tired of his bad habits. They decide to leave him with a wise old man for a week.

The old man told the kid he will only be allowed to eat, play, and speak if he completes the daily tasks given to him.

They went into a forest and the man asked the kid to pluck the grass as his first task. With an arrogant smile, he easily did it.

The next day, the man asked him to uproot a sapling as a second task, he did as told.

The next day, the man asked him to uproot a shrub, with much struggle he was able to complete the task.

Last day, the man wanted the kid to uproot a fully grown tree. The kid looked at the tree and said, “I can’t even try, it is so big. This is impossible.”

The old man replied, “Exactly my dear, same is true for your bad habits. If you let them grow, they become difficult to remove.”

Moral – Stop your kids from doing wrong at the young age. Don’t let their bad turn into deep-rooted habits.
