Want to wean your children off BAD HABITS? Here’s a unique Parenting Approach:
A wealthy man Jayant Rao requested an old scholar to wean his young son Saurabh away from his bad habits. The scholar took the youth Saurabh for a stroll through a garden. Stopping suddenly, he asked Saurabh to pull out a tiny plant, about 2 inches in height, that had just sprouted through the ground. Saurabh held the plant between his thumb and forefinger and pulled it out. The old man then asked him to pull out a slightly bigger 6 inches tall plant. Saurabh pulled hard and the plant came out, cutting little roots and all.
The old smart scholar took an interesting approach to change Saurabh.
There were no lectures.
There were no threats.
There was no ‘painting the future gloomy’ scenario.
