The Three Little Pigs
This classic fairy tale is a
wonderful metaphor for how we prepare ourselves to face day
to day living. Each pig represents a combination of
temperaments and attitudes in life. Each house represents
a level of traits to handle adversity. The wolf of course
represents the problems and challenges that confront us
along are away.
The first little pig values fun
and freedom. While life should be pleasant it also
requires work and responsibility. This little pig has lost
that balance. He focuses on convenience so he can have
time to play and amuse himself. His house reflexes
shallowness. It is shocking and weak. This home is clearly
insecure against outside challenges. When faced with the
first small problem this pig is left helpless and dependent
on his two siblings.
In this book, we will look
closely at the issue of resilience. Like the three little
pigs, children are young and still developing. Caregivers
have a major impact on their attitude and approach to life.
What things can we adults do to bring out children’s inner
strengths? What can we do to help them face challenges
without crumbling? If they do fall, how do we teach them to
get up and move on with a sense of wisdom gained? In these
pages, the resilient pig, Phoebe, is our model of inner
strength against adversity.
