There was a young boy who had a problem with anger. Whenever he got mad, he would say mean things to people without thinking about how it would hurt them. His father noticed this and wanted to teach him a lesson.

The boy’s father came up with a plan. He asked his son to hammer a nail into the backyard fence every time he got angry. At first, the boy used a lot of nails because he would get angry very often. But as time went on, he started to get angry less frequently, so he used fewer nails.

When the boy had gotten better at controlling his anger, his father gave him a new challenge. Instead of hammering in nails, he asked his son to remove one nail from the fence every day that he didn’t get angry. The boy agreed to the challenge and started taking out one nail each day.

After some time, the boy had removed all the nails from the fence. His father then asked him to look at the holes left behind. The fence was no longer the same. The father used this moment to remind his son that just like the holes in the fence, the hurtful things he had said to people could never be erased.

Moral: Anger leaves scars on people.
