A mother was seeing her 8-year-old son off to school one morning. She walked him to the bus stop where they waited patiently; the bus came and her son got on the school bus. The mother proceeded to go home so she could get ready to go to work. About 15 minutes later the doorbell rang and it was her son at the front door. She was shocked to see him since she just got him on the school bus, then she noticed the school bus with its door open, in front of her house. The mother asked her son, “What are you doing back home?” Her 8-year-old son said, “I’m quitting school, it's too hard, it’s too boring, and it’s too long.” The mother looked at him and said, “That's life, now get back on the bus.”
Lesson: Experiences of life touch all no matter how young or how old.
