Eight year old Carl was very discouraged. As he entered the classroom his teacher noticed that he was not well and asked:
- Carl, have you finished your task?
- No, teacher. But every day is the same! I'm tired of always having to do the same things! Brush my teeth, take a shower, do my homework! Phew! I can't stand it! - replied the boy, sullenly.
Full of patience, the teacher gave him a slight smile:
- Carl, we're still here because you have not done your task. Your classmates have already left. If you had done it, there would be no need for you to stay after class.
