The children’s story of the boy who cried wolf is an old one but has a great lesson. Remember it? There was once a shepherd by the name Ronnie who looked after a flock of sheep. One day, out of boredom, he decided to play a trick. He screamed, “Help! Wolf! Please help!” The villagers came running with sticks to drive the wolf away and protect the boy. When they reached the boy, they asked him where the wolf was. The boy laughed and said, “l fooled everyone! There was no wolf.” The villagers left angrily.
