Tyson the lion, was a young cub, confident and strong. He thought he could take on just about anyone. His mother though knew better and advised the young cub to be careful, but, he will not listen to his mother's advice. What happens next?
This week's episode is a South African folklore that has been adapted for Storytelling with Ngozi. Check this out on Youtube or listen on the podcast below.
This is a beautiful story to help kids to see the need to follow their parents advice. In the Tyson the lion story, Tyson thought he had everything under control as he is stronger so he could take on anyone.
Sometimes, little ones may think they know better, if you are a parent you need to loving help them see the need to follw instructions for their own safety or sometimes for the safety of others.
Also just because you are stronger or because you have more privilleges than others, you do not want to bother them for no apparent reason. Even if there is a reason, it might not be a smart thing to do.
There are many videos about lions for kids online. Have a look at some of these to see if you can pick out anything else about lions. And it is always fun to draw a picture of our main character for the week. A drawing of the lion will be a great activity this week.
