Athene? She could do no better than I! I have gained this skill with my own ten fingers!
How are you so good at weaving? Surely the god Athene must have taught you!
Perhaps Athene herself will not come forth, as her skills cannot match mine!
Stupid old woman! How dare you speak this way of me! I challenge Athene to come, and show her horrid skills!
How dare you claim equality to the immortal gods! Take my advice and beg pardon to Athene for your actions!
For my weave, I should make a picture of the gods doing bad deeds!
I was that old woman in disguise! How dare you claim equality to me!
In my weave, I should make a warning to Arachne, and the consequences of her actions!
I will not live under this insult!
LIVE ON, WICKED GIRL! YOUR DESCENDANTS WILL KNOW THE STORY OF HOW YOU CLAIMED EQUALITY TO THE IMMORTAL GODS!!!
This myth applies to young children because in the story, Arachne is bragging about her skills to people. Also, Arachne treated an elderly woman poorly, and treated the gods poorly as well. Kids may be bragging or treating others poorly, so this myth shows that a bad deed creates a bad consequence.
