“There’s nothing like children doing what they’re told by their parents.”

Old Chattertooth said these words in the soccer tale Klapzuba’s Eleven to explain the tremendous success of his soccer playing boys. How does your own experience support this formula for success?
Do you win when you do what you are told to do by your parents? What else brings success in your life?

  2. Mr.Chattertooth is proud of his boys because they did whatever he told to them to do.

    When my parents tell me something to do, and I don’t feel like listen to them, things goes wrong but when i listen to them everything goes fine

  5. “There’s nothing like children doing what they’re told by their parents” tells us that when we listen to our parents or just people older than my age everything goes fine. Maybe it is because they have more experiences than what we teenagers have. Other way to success is to make the right ans wise decisions.

  8. Well my life has been not that good while I were in my native country, I didn’t obey my supervisor which were my grandmother and my aunt.

    Things have been changed in this country, because I obey my mother and I do everything she said, well almost everything, because when she ask me some that I don’t like I argued with her. But most of the time I do obey her.

    There was one day that I didn’t obey her, and that day was the most horrible day in this country, I had to walk a whole bunch of mile away from my house, just because I didn’t get in the car when told me to get in there, so she let me alone to walk home.

    After all I thing that was my fault.
