The proverbs of Solomon:
A wise son makes his father glad,
but a foolish son brings grief to his mother. Bible

“grief.” The Hebrew word is tugah (#08424 תּוּגָה), and means grief, heaviness, sorrow. The “interpretation” of the verse involves only the mother, but the application of the verse is much broader, because fools bring grief and sorrow to all those who take an interest in, and are involved in, their lives.
