Ooops! A Toolkit for Parents

Once there lived a couple with their two virtuous sons, who were both afflicted by disease. One day, when their father was away, they both succumbed and died. On his return, the mother accosted him and said, ‘Dear one, a long time ago a saint had given me two priceless jewels for safe keeping. When he came and asked for them, I felt very sad and miserable.’ The husband replied, ‘Dear one, do not fret as these jewels have gone back where they belong. But tell me what these jewels were?’ The wife then took the husband to the bodies of their sons and said: ‘These, my lord, were the two jewels that God has taken back.’
