And do not talk too much to women
Yosef ben Yochanan ends the mishnah by saying: "Do not talk too much with women." This is speaking even about a person's own wife as well as other women. From here our Sages said, "A person who talks too much to women will cause himself harm, neglect learning Torah and in the end he will get Gehenom." The mishnah does not speak about serious conversation, but wants to show us how a person can talk too much and it can lead to Loshon Horo (gossip). Like the boy in the picture, he will waste precious time from learning Torah.
