Watch the What is That? video using the link below:

This a Greek short film made in 2007. An elderly father and adult son are sitting on a bench. Suddenly a sparrow lands across from them. The father asks the son, “What is that?” multiple times. The son grows more impatient each time. What the father does next is a beautiful lesson in patience through love.

After watching the video, discuss the following with your child or children:

  • What lesson does the father teach his son?
  • Have you ever had an experience when you lost your temper? What happened?
  • How can you develop patience?
  • How does patience demonstrate kindness?
