Family Wellness Tip of the Week  -The Moral of The Story

Ever noticed how a lot of kid's stories have a moral or lesson?  Long ago people learned how to teach kids right and wrong...a good story.  

Horton Hatches an Egg by Dr. Seuss is a favorite and great example.  Mayzie is a bird who wants to fly off to better things BUT has an egg in her nest.  She gets Horton, an elephant, to sit on her egg for almost a year.  He is made fun of.  He deals with horrible weather.  He never leaves the egg because he promised he would keep it safe.  Mayzie sees Horton as the egg is hatching.  She wants her baby bird.  Sad Horton is willing to give it up because it is, technically, her baby bird.  When the egg finally hatches, it is a tiny elephant with wings.  The baby goes home to the jungle with Horton and he is happy as can be.  What is the moral of the story?  Do the right thing.  If you go through hard times, stay strong.  The right thing will happen.

Most people miss what ol' Seussy-boy says at the end..."It should be, it should be, it should be like that."  He reminds us that sometimes it doesn't work out, no matter how hard we're trying to do the right thing.  Life can be incredibly discouraging and we do the best we can with what we have.  We never know the outcome.  The moral of our story?  Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.  Kids learn from your example and the lessons you teach as they grow up.
