(125) ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!


Everyone says that nowadays
Parents are pressurizing their child
They are forcing them to study and work harder than they can
And driving their children wild
Just when the child is taking a break
A parent comes in and says, “Go back and study”!
They make the child study and practice all day long
And won’t even let them go play with their buddy
I think all children need to have some freedom
And sometime to play and have fun
This way children and parents can be satisfied
And live happily under the sun

    I support your thoughts...parents should understand the child's psyche, nagging the child all the time will not help, concentration during the study time is must and then some space should be given to him/her.
    This poem should be read by parents specially Indian parents. well thought and composed...I am a real fan of your talent... (Report) Reply
