Which Parent Will I Be?

Which Parent Will I Be?


WHICH PARENT WILL I BE?
  • "I got two A's," the small boy cried.
    His voice was filled with glee.

    His father very bluntly asked,
    "Why didn't you get three?"

  • "Mom, I've got the dishes done,"
    The girl called from the door.

    Her mother very calmly said,
    "Did you sweep the floor?"

  • "I've mowed the grass," the tall boy said,
    "And put the mower away."

    His father asked him, with a shrug,
    "Did you clean off the clay?"

The children in the house next door
seem happy and content.

The same thing happened over there,
And this is how it went:

  • "I got two A's,"
    the small boy cried,
    His voice was filled with glee.

    His father very proudly said,
    "That's great, I'm glad you belong to me."

  • "Mom, I've got the dishes done,"
    The girl called from the door.

    Her mother smiled and softly said,
    "Each day I love you more."

  • "I've mowed the grass," the tall boy said,
    "And put the mower away."

    His father answered with much joy,
    "You've made my day happy."

Children deserve a little praise
For tasks they're asked to do.

If they're to lead a happy life,
So much depends on you.
