STRIKE WHEN THE IRON IS HOT

Iron is a very hard metal. If we strike it when hot we can bend or expand it according to the desired size and shape. Whenever an oppor­tunity presents itself, we should be prepared to make the most of it. The teenage is usually the time when a boy’s or girl’s character is being moulded. The youth is the time when one is full of vigour. For almost everything in life, there is a suitable time at which the most can be exploited out of it. So at an younger age children should be guided properly even with the use of a little force.
