5 Positive Short Stories

Most parents turn to short stories when trying to teach their children a valuable moral lesson. It not only entertains them, but it also educates them about life.

Short tales have a unique method of imparting knowledge that makes them more accessible and engaging. Teaching your child a brief tale about what happens when they lie is more effective than just telling them not to lie. It assists people in being more conscious of their behaviors and the implications of those acts. As youngsters get older, the moral teachings from these stories assist to build their character and moral compass.

There are 5 short stories that we can learn from it:

1. The Tortoise and the Hare

Once upon a time, there was a hare who was friends with a tortoise. He challenged the tortoise to a race one day. The hare assumed he’d win this easily because the tortoise was moving so slowly. As a result, he took a nap as the tortoise continued on his way. When the hare awoke, the tortoise had already crossed the finish line. The tortoise, much to his dismay, won the race while he was napping.

This narrative truly has a handful of moral lessons for us to learn. The hare teaches that arrogance can lead to disaster. The tortoise, on the other hand, teaches us about the importance of perseverance.Never give up, even if the odds are stacked against you. It’s not always about who’s the quickest or strongest; sometimes it’s about who’s the most consistent.

2. The Bone and the Dog

There was once a dog who roamed the streets at all hours of the day and night in quest of food. He came upon a large juicy bone one day and instantly snatched it between his teeth and carried it home. He passed a river on his way home and observed another dog with a bone in its jaws. He also wants that bone for himself. But the bone he was gnawing slid into the river and sank as he opened his lips. He went home famished that night.

If we continuously covet what others have, we, like the greedy dog, will lose what we already have.

3. The Hungry Crow

A thirsty crow wandered the woodland in quest of water after flying a long distance. Finally, he came to a half-filled water pot. He tried to drink from it, but his beak was too short to reach the interior water. He then saw stones on the ground and placed them in the pot one by one till the water level reached the brim. The crow quickly drank from it, satiating his thirst.

There is a way if there is a will. If we seek hard enough and don’t give up, we can find a solution to any difficulty.

4. John the Slacker

A youngster named John was so lethargic that he didn’t even bother to change his clothing. He saw the apple tree in their yard was laden with fruit one day. He wanted some apples but was too sluggish to climb the tree and get them. So he sat down beneath the tree, waiting for the fruits to fall. John waited until he was starving, but the apples refused to fall.

You can’t go anywhere by being lazy. If you desire anything, you must put forth the effort.

5. The Grapes and the Fox

Once upon a time, a hungry fox came across a vineyard. The fox drooled as he saw the round, delicious grapes hanging in a group. But no matter how high he leapt, he was unable to reach it. So he departed, reasoning that it was probably sour. He had to sleep on an empty stomach that night.

The majority of us have fox-like behavior. We make up excuses when we want something but believe it is too difficult to obtain. We tell ourselves that it’s probably not that great instead of working hard for it.
