Teach Your Child Well

We have technology for a reason, but we also have nature for a reason.
Both can help each other. Teach them that, and may be they won't use one to ignore the other.

Carrot, Egg Or Coffee

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as when one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, "Tell me what you see." ?
"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg. Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?" Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently.

The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.

The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.

However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water."Which are you?" she asked her daughter. When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond?

Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean ?"

Think about it: Which am I like ? the coffee bean?

The coffee bean actually changes the boiling water with its rich aroma, when the water gets hot, coffee releases its fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, with your positive strength you can change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate yourself to another level
