Many parents today will tell

Many parents today will tell you that they wish they had more of the virtue of patience. I love the story of the man in the supermarket who was pushing a trolley which contained, among other things, a screaming baby. As the man proceeded along the aisles, he kept repeating softly. ‘Keep calm, George. Don’t get excited, George. Don’t get excited, George. Don’t yell, George.’ A lady watching in admiration said to the man, ‘You are certainly to be commended for your patience in trying to quiet little George.’ ‘Lady’, he declared, ‘I’m George!’
