No matter how small the affair,
Always ask for your parents’ advice.
If you don’t ask for their advice,
Then you’ve not been a dutiful child.
When good things though small, come your way,
Give your family their rightful share first.
If you hoard up the best for yourself,
Kinfolk’s feelings are sure to be hurt.
Whenever you injure your body,
Your parents feel grief and alarm.
Whenever you damage your virtue,
Your family’s good name comes to harm.
