Good Parenthood Contribute Positively To The Teen Life.

A Primary School teacher asked her pupils to write

an essay on ”A wish you want from God?” At the

end of the day, the teacher collected all the essays

given by her pupils. She took them to her house,

sat down and started marking.

While marking the essays, she sees a strange essay

written by one of her pupils. That essay made her

very emotional. Her husband came and sat beside

her and saw her crying. The husband asked her,

“What happened?” “What’s making you cry”

She answered “Read this. It is one of my pupil’s


“Oh God, Make me a Television. I want to live like

the TV in my house.

In my house, the TV is very valuable. All of my

family members sit around it. They are very

interested in it. When the TV is talking, my parents

listen to it very happily.

They don’t shout at the TV. They don’t quarrel with

the TV. They don’t slap the TV. So I want to

become a TV.

The TV is the centre of attraction in my house. I

want to receive the same special care that the TV

receives from my parents. Even when it is not

working, the TV has a lot of value.

When my dad and mom come home, they

immediately sit in front of the TV, switch it on and

spend hours watching it. The TV is stealing the

time of my dad and my mom. If I become a TV,

then they will spend their time with me.

While watching the TV, my parents laugh a lot and

they smile many times. But I want my parents to

laugh and smile with me also. So please God make

me a TV.

And last but not the least, if I become a TV, surely I

can make my parents happy and entertain them.

Lord I won’t ask you for anything more. I just want

to live like a TV. Please turn me into a TV.

The husband completed reading the essay. He said

“My God, poor kid. He feels lonely. He did not

receive enough love and care from his parents. His

parents are horrible.”

The eyes of the primary School teacher filled with

tears. She looked at her husband and said, “Our son

wrote this essay.”

What do you think of this piece?

May our children never desire to be WhatsApp

Phones or TV

Pope Francis wrote: why do we sleep in church but

stay awake in bars until sunrise? Why is it so hard

to talk to God but so easy to chat? Why is it so

easy to ignore a Godly text message. And forward the funny or the nasty ones? , why is that we spend more times with our phones but less with our books.

It all good to be righteous and let live an examplary life,

      Oh my, i would also be crying a bucket if it was my child who wrote it. It’s a big slap to the parents, because the child felt unwanted, but the TV is so much wanted.

      It means they have the time to watch TV but not to even talk to their child even for a while.

      But then watching TV with your child can also be one way of bonding. But it has to be a show that is applicable to a child. Watching it with him and her and sharing their joy of watching it is already a sheer happiness of a child. That’s because her/his parents watched it with them.
