All work and no play…
Thus goes a one-time adage, “All work without play makes Jack a dull boy.”
Yes, it’s true to the brim, and here comes a thoughtful but perplexing short tale:
A wise educator was once asked by a mother of a child – four years of age, at what time she should commence keeping her child physically fit.
In an amazed tone, the old man replied, “Oh! It is already four years, too late!”…
This may be a ‘sarcastic’ exaggeration, but the best informed opinions are that the child should be subjected to fitness as soon as possible.
