Father, I don’t want to live with him, Child 3: Father, he always takes away my things.
Child 4: Don’t lie in front of father. Father, he is a liar. Father: Children II Enough. For God sake stop flitting. Come here. (They all come near him) Father: Each one of you go and get a stick from our backyard. (They all come back with a stick) Together: Father, we have the sticks. Father: Now, break them in to pieces. Children: Yes, we did. That was so easy. Father: Now, tie all those pieces together with a string.
Children: Here it is ready. Father: Now try to break it. Children: Father!! It’s not breaking. It’s strong now. Father: All of you learn from this simple example. You could break them when they were single but could not even bend them when they were together.
