Once upon a time there was a boy with a very difficult character. His father gives him a bag full of nails and tells him to drive one nail in the garden fence every time he loses his patience and/or has an argument with someone.

The first day the boy drives 37 nails in the garden fence . In the following weeks, the boy learns to control himself and the number of nails driven in the fence gets lower every day:


The boy discovers that it is easier to learn to control himself than to hammer nails in the fence.

At last, the day comes when the boy does not drive any nail in the garden fence. Then he goes to his father and tell s him that today he did not need to hammer any nail.

His father then tells the boy to take out one nail from the fence for every day
he succeeds in controlling his temper and not loosing his patience. Many days pass and finally the boy can tell his father that he took out all nails from the fence.

The father brings his son in front of the fence and tells him: « My son, you behaved well, but look how many holes you left in the fence »

It will never be the same. When you have an argument with someone and tell him bad words, you leave him with wounds like these ones.........
