THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Mother’s Dozen:  An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!”

Yes, even fathers are reading “Mother’s Dozen”!

Andre Harris of California says, “Power Packed Without the Fluff.  As a new father, Mother’s Dozen has been a great resource.  Why re-invent the wheel when Joyce Fields has put together a simple, yet comprehensive road map to child rearing.  The 12 categories are basic ingredients that cross gender, race and culture.  To sum, Mother’s Dozen takes you back to understanding the core values that drive individual behavior from infancy to adulthood.  A great read.”

MOTHER’S DOZEN:  An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!







Lazy Donkey

Bola owns a donkey called Kanda.  Bola is a very tolerant and kind master.  The donkey is lazy and is always finding ways to avoid work.

Once while returning with loads of salt on his back, Kanda falls into the river.  He realizes that the fall has lessened the weight of the sacks as the salt has dissolved in the water.

The next few days Kanda purposely falls into the water every day.  Bola is unhappy at the way Kanda is behaving because he is losing money in the process.  So he decides to teach Kanda a lesson.

The next day, instead of salt bags, he loads Kanda with bags of cotton.  Kanda is unaware of the change.  As planned, he falls into the water and gets the bags wet.  But he is surprised to find the load unbearable.  His tolerant and kind master also starts beating him.

Kanda learns his lesson and starts behaving.

Moral of the story:  Work with honesty and sincerity because laziness will ruin you.
