Bad Habits- Moral Story For Kids

Tofu! Don’t talk with your mouth full. It’s okay, Tia. It is just you and me. I think the only way to get you to eat quietly is to tell you a story. Hmmm.
Yes! Yes! Tia!
Once upon a time, an upscale businessman lived along with his 8-year old boy. The businessman loved his son but hated that he had some bad habits and Worried about his son’s behaviour, the person visited a wise master. ‘O’ wise Master, my son is a very good boy. But he has picked some unhealthy habits which I cannot get him to abandoning. I worry about him all the time. Please help me. Bring him to me tomorrow morning.
The next morning the person did because the Master had said. He brought his boy to him. Come, son. Let’s go for a walk. The boy obeyed. And they went for an enter the garden. As they walked, they came upon a little sapling. Son, pull out the sapling for me. The boy did that easily and presented the Master with the sapling alright, now you see that tiny plant? Pull that out for me. The boy did as asked and simply pulled the plant out. Next, the Master asked him to tug out a bush. It took some effort, but the boy did that too. Now, see that small tree, son? Pull that out for me. The boy went to the small tree and though it took him a lot of effort and struggle and he pulled it out for the master. Very well done.
Finally, look at that big tree over there. Pull that out too for me. The boy tried and tried. But the tree did not budge. Finally, tired the boy gave up. I am sorry, wise Master I cannot pull that tree out. It is old and strong. Bad habits are a bit like plants and trees. When they are new like the sapling you can get rid of them quickly and easily. But if you allow them to stay and grow they grow strong and become just like the old tree that can’t be removed.
Forgive me, Master! I now understand, what my father has been trying to inform me. I will drop all my bad habits from now on!
Tia! What if talking with food in my mouth becomes my bad habit too. I will stop it right now. I will never talk with food in my mouth, ever again! That’s great. Thank you, Tofu!
