The best way to teach a lesson is often by demonstrating what needs to be learned. A father decided to take his son into the woods in order to teach him how to become a man.
The father blindfolds the son and gives him a list of things that he needs to do. The son must sit on the stump the entire night, and he is not allowed to remove the blindfold or cry out for help.
The boy is not allowed to tell other boys about this experience. He is determined to become a man, so he spends the whole night in the forest. It seems as though the night lasted forever.
Finally, the morning comes, and the boy takes off his blindfold. He realizes that his father was beside him the entire time.
