The message of the story of The Young Thief and His Mother is somehow similar to that of The Trees and The Axe. Let us read the story, please.
The Young Thief and His Mother
Moral of Aesop’s Fable
The youth’s future is filled with possibility. I believe that as parents, we are privileged to direct our children on the right path. If we just tolerated our kids’ wrongdoings, it might be too late to correct them when they become grown-ups already.
Just like the promise of Proverbs, a child who is carefully and consciously trained in the “way he should go” will remain true to that way in this life. He will reap its rewards and even us parents would enjoy a good harvest.
Let us guide our children then to the right path, and should we see them going the dangerous way, let us be the parents they deserve and lead them to what is right.
