The Young Thief and his Mother

A young Man had been caught in a daring act of theft and had been condemned to be executed for it. He expressed his desire to see his Mother, and to speak with her before he was led to execution, and of course this was granted.

When his Mother came to him he said: "I want to whisper to you," and when she brought her ear near him, he nearly bit it off. All the bystanders were horrified, and asked him what he could mean by such brutal and inhuman conduct. "It is to punish her," he said.

Moral of the Story:

Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart therefrom.

Lesson in life:

Ask a child about his/her role model, someone the child looks up to, worship, and admire. Invariably, the child will have a name. It may be a fictitious character – Superman, Harry Potter, Tooth Fairy – or a celebrity and well-known figure – Paris Hilton, Tiger Woods, Christopher Reeves. Interesting that the role models are very often not the parents. Perhaps familiarity breeds contempt or perhaps parents never truly make the effort to create that sort of impact in their children's minds.
