Experiene Is The Best Teacher

In our village long time ago there lived a girl who lived in a poor family. He loved his parents very much together with her children and friends, He used to perform very well in school and started to be a drug addict.He started disturbing his parents at home together with her teachers. His performance started to get low and many students started to laugh at her. Her parents were called to school and consulted their daughter and she managed to change and move in the write track. I swear never to be a drug addict again. Her performance on school now started to get high and in future she became a bank manager and helped her parents.
