This is an incredible poem, and I loved how you showed a great lesson learned
in a poem. Your mom was a really smart woman, and it is amazing that I also
learned about stealing in a very similar way, long, long ago. Though it was a
similar incident but taught to me by a friend....by explaining how I would feel.
I love this excellent poem! (and reminding me of an important life lesson once learned!)
Your mom approach is one of the most classy and true one, to educate is not by strict act but must the using mind, soulful effect...being soft can turn harder thing to give up...If you go to cave, find the place where the water dropp on the stone, or if you near to beach see what the sea water can do to the stone, it can change the shape of the stone..it maybe takes time but it will shape them perfectly without broken...softness is not weak but it just wiser, coz it will be harder to do this for who have no patient in heart_Unwritten Soul
Incredible also the child who did not hide the toy and told his mother right away, at 5 already, a child can feel a wrong done thing. He didn't fight he was not pushed. As sweet as mother the child was.
Lovely poem, thank you for share,10
Empathy and true compassion are two traits of a human being. Its great that this mother gave these two qualities to her son very early in life...hats off to the mother for her considerate behavior as well.

Since then, I ‘ve quit forever the stealing
a small little toy changed you completely already in childhood that you became a true person the whole life and your dear mother who became the cause of change in you for eternity. nice my dear poet. thank you for sharing
