The child wishes to feed seagulls while on a riverboat ride, but there is no sign of them. With the captain's encouragement, your child patiently waits for them, and to their delight eventually, the seagulls appear to eat the snacks your child has to offer.


The Lesson

Instant gratification has become embedded in the modern world. This makes patience one of the most valuable virtues to learn in this life. By learning how to practice presence and composure, your child develops their ability to adopt automatic control and understands how to postpone the need for immediate pleasure.  Few things happen in our life exactly when we want them to happen so this is a necessary skill to foster tolerance and tenacity.
