    Default Temper Control

    There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the fence.

    The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily, gradually dwindled down.

    He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didnít lose his temper at all.

    He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

    The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.

    He said ďyou have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence, it will never be the same.

    When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.Ē

    You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It wonít matter how many times you say Iím sorry, the wound is still there.

    Make sure you control your temper the next time you are tempted to say something you will regret later.
