There was once a lion who thought he was a sheep. Because he was raised in a sheep pen by a herdsman. His mother is a sheep, his brothers and sisters are sheep, and his good friends are sheep, of course!
Since childhood, this lion only eats the tender grass on the mountain, which is no different from other sheep. As like as two peas, he will give a baa cry.
One day, a hyena passed by.
The first time he saw a lion eating grass, he would bleat! He thought: this lion didn't know he was a lion! It seems that I have to teach him lion roar and how to hunt. One day, he will come to thank me.
So the hyena approached the lion and told him that the lion was the king of all animals, not a sheep. If you go to the river and look at your reflection, you will understand.
The lion came to the river and looked at the water. Ah, I am so majestic! He shook his mane and bleated with joy!
Hyenas laugh: lions can't bleat! The real lion roars.
The lion took a deep breath and let out a deafening roar.
When the sheep heard this, they ran away immediately. The lion wondered: where are you going?
Hyena: why do you care about them?
The lion said, they are all my brothers, sisters and friends! I eat grass and bleat with them every day.
Lions don't eat grass, they eat other animals!
you 're right!
Eat all the animals?
Yes, all kinds of animals!
The lion then asked: does it include hyenas?
Hyenas suddenly scared up, asked: you do not want to eat hyenas, right?
Hyenas don't want to be eaten by lions, so they run away immediately.
The lion thought it strange: I was just about to tell him I didn't like his taste! I don't eat animals. It's better to eat grass with your family in the mountains.
The lion would rather be a sheep with many friends than a lion king who is powerful but frightening. So he went back to the sheep and continued to live happily with his family.
Words for children: children, in the face of the same thing, everyone's attitude is different, just like the lion in the story is not willing to be a powerful but lonely lion, but more willing to be a friend's sheep. Maybe in many people's eyes, the lion should do what the lion should do, but nothing in the world is absolute, for example: everyone likes to eat something, but a child just doesn't like it, so we should respect his choice and shouldn't impose our own views on others.
To parents: a child is an independent person and should learn to choose by himself, even if his choice is different from others. As long as this choice can make him happy and there is no serious mistake, parents should respect his choice. I believe that every parent wants their children to be independent and independent, rather than drift with the tide.
