A ladder is a common feature found in most homes. But, I wonder if parents take time to explain to their young children the metaphor to education. Apparently, everyone in the family is just engrossed with sending off children to school. However, it would be worthwhile to take some time to discuss the symbolism to young minds. In instances when the steps are weak, that would only mean going back to the next lower level. Ascent can only be looked forward to when the steps are built with strong materials. When done ever so often, young people would be inclined to cultivate in themselves the principle of achieving higher goals.
