Tony was a little jumping boy
He had a smart talking toy
It was a mobile phone
He played with it all alone
Which was his great pride and joy.

    Initially we deceive the child and finally the child deceives us. I read while doing MBA Bringing up a child it was: when a toddler learnt to walk and when child fallen and cried Mom or Papa will blame the earth and beat the the same time..child picked up and always blamed other, hiding his fault and blaming other. and on the other side put the child at the corner and call the baby ..please come..child does the same.when felled Mom/Papa ordered come, get up kid he did the same and came to the ward they hugged and kissed but the baby knew the mistake is a mistake must be corrected...
