Learning how to do something new as a child can be very tough. The first several times of doing it can have a lot of falls and failure. It’s important to pick yourself up every time and try again. My early attempts at riding a bike were pretty close to catastrophic and required a lot of bandages. I kept trying though and was able to get the hang of it. It’s the same thing for the little star of the video we see here.
We see a baby monkey climbing on a rope in what looks like a monkey enclosure at a zoo. He’s not sure what to do at first – he keeps falling off, but his mommy is nearby and she even holds the rope down for a bit so that he can grab on and climb. She’s very patient and that helps him learn without any pressure. As the video goes on, he’s getting better and better and falling off much less.
By the time the video ends, the baby monkey has caught on to climbing very well. He moves around like a little pro and even hangs upside down for a bit while his older siblings and parents walk around him. He should be very proud – he got the hang (ha!) of it really quickly. Maybe when he gets older, he can show his own children how to do the same thing. Someone better have a video camera ready then.
For some reason, the person who made the video thought that the “Itsy Bitsy Spider” song was a good choice for background music. It was perfect, there was climbing, but it wasn’t a spider, there was no water spout and there was no rain. Other than that… perfect. It would have been better to just have the whimsical music and no lyrics. That’s just me, though. Maybe other people watching liked it.
Wasn’t this little guy SO adorable? I loved how he didn’t quit. He just kept trying and trying and trying. Do you have any stories like this? We’d love to hear them in the comments section!
