    Your mom approach is one of the most classy and true one, to educate is not by strict act but must the using mind, soulful effect...being soft can turn harder thing to give up...If you go to cave, find the place where the water dropp on the stone, or if you near to beach see what the sea water can do to the stone, it can change the shape of the maybe takes time but it will shape them perfectly without broken...softness is not weak but it just wiser, coz it will be harder to do this for who have no patient in heart_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

    Incredible also the child who did not hide the toy and told his mother right away, at 5 already, a child can feel a wrong done thing. He didn't fight he was not pushed. As sweet as mother the child was.

    Empathy and true compassion are two traits of a human being. Its great that this mother gave these two qualities to her son very early in life...hats off to the mother for her considerate behavior as well.

    The poem depicted the story very beautifully. (Report) Reply

    Very good poem shows how subtly Mother handled the problem and what a change in the child's perception. The poetic craft is excellent I give 10/10. (Report) Reply

    What a beautiful poem! I hope they include such poems in the curriculum for school students. It would be such a wonderful way to learn about moral values in early childhood. (Report) Reply

    My mother, incredibly sweet, incredibly bright
    Swallowed her anger but asked in a voice, slightly tight
    Please consider for a minute or two
    How you would feel if someone did this to you.
    Deep in my mind, I considered this plight.

    Very touching and very true it is... So sweet of the mother to understand and handle it in a such a good manner..Nicely written with utter care and can feel a mother's love for her son.. God work..Thanks for sharing.. (Report) Reply
