“And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.”
When I am:
- Four years old: My daddy can do anything.
- Five years old: My daddy knows a whole lot.
- Six years old: My dad is smarter than your dad.
- Eight years old: My dad doesn’t know exactly everything.
- Ten years old: In the olden days, when my dad grew up, things were sure different.
- Twelve years old: Oh, well, naturally, Dad doesn’t know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood.
- Fourteen years old: Don’t pay any attention to my dad. He is so old-fashioned.
- Twenty-one years old: Him? My Lord, he’s hopelessly out of date.
- Twenty-five years old: Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been around so long.
- Thirty years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, he’s had a lot of experience.
- Thirty-five years old: I’m not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad.
- Forty years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise.
- Fifty years old: I’d give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn’t appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.
