A Child’s plea to his parents
- Be firm with me, it makes me feel secure.
- Don’t nag. If you do, I shall have to protect myself by appearing deaf.
- Help me not to form bad habits for I depend on you to detect them in the early stages.
- Correct me in private and not in public. I plead for the same respect as one deserves.
- Don’t protect me from the consequences. I need to learn the painful way some times.
- Love me but don’t spoil me.
- Don’t take too much notice of my small ailments sometimes they get me the attention I want.
- I am quickly growing up. It must be very difficult for you to keep pace “but remember your days”.
- Don’t even suggest that you are perfect or infallible. It gives me a great shock when I discover that you are neither.
- Please keep yourself fit and healthy. I NEED YOU.
- Help me to be austere. For my birthday, I need to take only toffees for each of my classmate for that is what they like.
- I am a Reflection of my Guides, my Teachers; don’t hit at them – you hurt me.
