In the Song Dynasty there was a Grand Commander who spoiled
his children. One day he came home and saw his son kneeling one the snow covered
ground without a coat on. Having asked his son the reasons for such behavior, he
discovered that his son own mother was punishing her grandson for a wrong-doing.
He then took off his own coat, and ordering the servants to tie him up, knelt
down on the snow covered ground beside his son.
His mother hearing abut this went to ask him what the matter
You're making my son suffer and catch cold. So now I'll make
your son suffer and catch cold too!, said the Grand Commander.
