MOMI LEARNS| Train a child in the way he should go

Aug 30, 2019 | Life, Only Berlin

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.

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.

    This is so true. When I became a mom, I realized that being a parent is not easy because we need to raise and direct our kids to the right path. So sometimes, I can’t help but ask myself “if I’m doing the right thing”. With regard to the story, I think this is not just the mother’s fault, the guy has his own mind, alam naman niya siguro kung ano ang tama sa mali.

    well said mom, we should absolutely raise a child the way he should be

    This is sad story but true. The man in the story also has it’s own life,own decision, he was just lacked by mother/parents guidance.

    So true! I try to let my kids follow their own paths. It might not be what I want, but it’s their life. Granted, if they are doing something dangerous I re-direct them, but they don’t have to do what I tell them to do with their life all the time.

    Hmm. I’m not sure what to think of this. I’ve always believed that we are who we are because of a mix of nature vs. nurture. While I believe it helps to have a good family, some of who you are is based in nature as well.

    That’s a truly beautiful and wise story. I think that parents have a vital role in bringing up their children. They should take responsibility for their children’s deeds too if they didn’t do it when they were young.

    Such an important message conveyed in such small words. The lesson is learnt that good parenting is a long term thing and should be done keeping in mind all the little things!

    I’ve read Aesop’s fables in school days.After reading your post,now I am thinking of reading his stories with my kids.A good way to teach morals to kids..

    This is a great way to teach your child about principles and morals. Your child thank you.

  10. Cindy Ingalls

    Kids definitely don’t come with instructions, and you won’t get everything right. However, training them to have good morals will serve them well in the long run.

  11. Cindy Nico

    So nice and true we all need to teach our children good morals. How important it is to teach your children always

  12. Adaleta Avdić

    Yes, this is very true. We totally need to instill this in our kiddos.

  13. lavandamichelle

    Our children truly needs parents. Because with pressure from friends we must keep themonthe right path.

  14. Princess Quinn

    The lesson of the story says a lot of things. What you said here is just so accurate. Parents are a big part of their kid’s future.

  15. Peachy A.

    It’s really up to us parents to discipline our children. We are the ones who teach our children how to determine what is right and wrong
