Correcting bad habits-woodmam

In the evening the children all arrived. They started to move the rocks and finally removed all of them to build a small pier. When the great work was done, the children cheered happily and then scampered home to sleep, dreaming of a happy next day.

  The next morning, the workers were surprised to find that all the rocks were gone? Electing them to follow the footprints on the ground, they soon found the missing stones.

  "They stole the rocks to build a little fishing pier. These little kids, they did a pretty good job!"

  The workers later took the brats to court. Fortunately, the owner of the stones was a gentleman who forgave the kids.

  Although the matter was over, all the children were punished by their father. Franklin's father was also furious.

  "Benjamin, come here." Franklin Sr. said in his usual stern, low voice. "Why do you move what is not yours? Bud."

  "If it were just for myself, I would never think of doing that, but we built the dock for everyone's convenience. If I use these stones to build a house, then only the owner of the house can enjoy it. Whereas I use these stones to build the dock but for more people." Little Franklin's answer surprised his father very much.

  3. Self-assessment

  Do you review your homework and do your homework as your first task after school every day? If so, is it because your parents or teachers ask you to do so, or because you think you should have done so in the first place?

  When you see another student doing well on a test, do you think it's because he's smarter than you or because his parents tutor him better? Or because he hired a tutor?

  Do you want to study well because your parents will scold you if you don't learn well and your teachers will not praise you?

  If you don't get good grades, do you feel that you are too stupid or that you didn't try hard enough?

  If you can't get on in your studies for a long time, do you think it's understandable that your grades are bad because your parents are of average literacy?

  After getting good grades, do you brag to your parents or classmates about your learning experience?

  When you have a few bad test scores, do you consider that your study method is not good or you are not working hard enough? Or do you suspect that your intelligence has begun to decline?

  When your mom or dad said something bad or even hard when you got a bad grade, do you think they were being harsh on you, or do you think you might not be trying hard enough and still need to improve your study methods?

  If your grades are medium and your mom and dad are not too satisfied, will you tell them that there are many other students who are not as good as you?

  Chapter 2 Correcting Bad Habits

  I. Unfiliality

  1. Concept and connotation

  Filial obedience to parents is the way of being a son and the essence of being a human being advocated by the sages since ancient times, and it is also the most basic civilization requirement in modern society. However, many primary and secondary school students, who are mainly only children today, are not familiar with human feelings and are not filial to their parents. Filial piety is the first of all good things. If one can be filial to one's parents from a young age and spread out, one will be able to love, care for and respect people and have a sense of social responsibility.

  The filial piety we advocate today is to understand our parents, to be close to them, to care for them, to be considerate of them, and to respect them. However, there are many people around us who do not do this, but on the contrary, they often only take their own perspective, affecting their parents' work and rest, making them angry, contradicting them, practicing exclusive use and enjoyment of good things, and so on. These seem to be the little things in life, but if we can't even do the little things in our daily life, it is impossible to be filial to our parents.

  There was a man who got married and had a son. He loved his child very much, but hated his old father. His father could not even walk steadily, stumbled everywhere, and could not do anything except eat and smoke. So he was eager to send his old father away and said to his own wife, "Let the old man go out into the world."

  His wife pleaded with him to let the old man stay, but he wouldn't even listen to her. So she had to say, "Then you just let him take a blanket with him."

  He only wanted to give the old man half a blanket in his heart, but his mouth said, "All right, let him take a blanket with him."

  At that moment, his own son suddenly said, "Father, you don't have to give grandpa a blanket, just give him half of it, and please keep the remaining half, so that when I grow up I can give it to you, so that you can also go out into the world."

  The son's words took the father by surprise and hurriedly kept his old father, because he already knew what his son would prepare for him if he did so.

  Unfiliality is mainly in the following areas.

  ① Inconsiderate parents

  Nowadays, many only children think their parents are omnipotent because their parents often respond to their requests, never knowing that their parents also encounter difficulties, and once their parents fail to do what they ask, they start to unreasonably stir up trouble, making their parents both sad and angry.

  The first manifestation of disobedience to parents is that they do not know how to appreciate their difficulties and never know how to think about things from their own standpoint. Many people will dislike their parents' cooking difficult to eat, or never make their favorite good food. But he did not think, parents are already very tired after work, but also to bother to cook is not an easy thing, or parents have been laid off, the family's economic conditions do not allow every meal can do those he loves to eat good food. For example, when parents are sick in bed, some people are not patiently asking about their parents' condition, taking care of them with tea and water at the bedside, instead they are complaining about their parents not getting up so late to take care of themselves. Some people, once they see their parents are sick, they take the money and run to McDonald's for a big meal, not caring whether their parents are also hungry, whether they need a drink of water or something. This makes the parents very sad and disappointed.

  So, ungrateful children should read the following story to really know what it means to be considerate of their parents.

  There was a girl named Du Yaoyao. When she was 8 years old, her father suddenly got sick and died, followed by her mother who had a rheumatic heart attack and was paralyzed in bed all of a sudden because she was sad. Her mother used to take care of the household chores, but now she can only lie on the bed and can't do anything. At this time, not only did Du Yaoyao have to take care of herself, she also had to take care of her mother who was paralyzed in bed, she had to cook, do laundry and do all the housework. All the students in her class bought popsicles during class, but Du Yaoyao never did. Not only could she not buy them, she could not even pay the school fees of more than ten dollars. However, Du Yaoyao's grades were always in the top of the class. Her mother was often hospitalized, so she stayed by her mother's bedside to do her homework; her mother's lower body was cold, so she held her mother's two feet in her arms to keep her warm; to make her mother happy, she sang and danced for her mother. Later she got into a local university. When people asked her why she didn't go to a better university in Beijing with such good grades, she said that she wanted to be by her mother's side and take good care of her mother.
