Over Confidence and the egg story of my daughter

Yesterday night my daughter Haniya came to me asked. Uppa, "do you know the story of the egg that fell down from the top of the building?". I said, no.

Her simple story went like this:
Question No.1: A hen laid an egg at the roof of a building and it fell down....Why?
I answered, but it was a wrong answer. She said, "the hen was not wise".
Question No.2: The next day the hen again laid an egg but it did not fell down. Why?
I answered, but answer was again wrong. She said, "the hen was now experienced".
Question No.2: The next day the hen again laid an egg but again it fell down. Why?
I answered and this time my answer was right. The answer obviously was "the hen was now overconfident".

Key words: Moral story, story for children, stories for children, wise man, wise man do not make mistake in the first chance, experience is the best teacher, over confidence is killing.
