At the mountain’s base a spring wells up: Youthful Folly. Superior people cultivate their character through decisive action.
蒙：亨。 匪我求童蒙，童蒙求我。 初筮告，再三瀆， 瀆則不告。利貞。
Youthful Folly: Prosperous progress. It is not I who seek them, the youth seeks me. The first time they ask, I answer; but if they ask again & again, it is annoyance: no answer. Beneficial to continue.
To punish youth, it does no good to commit an offense. The idea is to prevent an offense.
Children’s folly is auspicious.
Trapped by youthful folly. Humiliation.
勿用取女； 見金夫，不有躬， 无攸利。
Do not choose a girl who, when she sees a rich man, loses control. No benefit.
Treating youth generously brings good fortune. Marriage brings good fortune. The child can take over the household.
發蒙， 利用刑人， 用說桎梏， 以往吝。
To enlighten youth, better to use discipline. Obstacles in the mind should be removed. Otherwise, humiliation.
