But then again I'm glad that I did so I can have something to write about today.

I was planning on not reading it already for usually in order for me to read as much, I allot reading one article per person per day. With all the number of users that we have here in read, it's a challenge to read as many as we can. That's why one article per person a day is reasonable.

So what was the article about? Here you can check out what ArteFM wrote about weird things that children say.

I was already ready to move on to another user but I got curious what are these weird things that kids say.

I was reading them and saying to myself, these are typical of kids.

Then I got to the last part.

It hit me hard. It upset me and made me emotional. I had to calm myself for the water gates were opened. My heart still feels heavy. Blame ArteFM lol!

No, no. You are not supposed to hear that from a kid, a 12-year-old kid. You should not hear it from anyone, young or old, for that matter.

To hear a kid say that he wants to die is heartbreaking.

It makes you wonder what kind of suffering that this kid went through or going through? Who in the world would treat him so badly that he wants to take his life?

As I read on further, I've learned that he is from a wealthy family but doesn't live with his parents but only with his 11-year-old girlfriend.

However, things have turned around for the better because how ArteFm and Luis helped the kid.

If you want to see the future, treat children better and full of love.

If you want a better future, treat children better and full of love.

What kind of world do you want our kids to grow up to? A society full of hate? Look at what is happening around us. Products of bad parenting? I say, yes! Have we gone lazy that we let gadgets and other people do the parenting for us and then blame the kids if they don't grow up right?

Whitney Houston said it well with her song the Greatest Love of All.

Although it is quite ironic that she sang that song but had lived a not so exemplary life. Just focus on the message of the song. That's the important thing.

Love your children more. Hug them more. Talk to them more. Make them be more kinder and loving. Shower them with humility. We have forgotten the basics. Teach them to be more polite. We are focused more on them achieving this and achieving that. We want them to excel in everything. Teach them respect. Show them respect. Kids learn fast. Don't dismiss them just because they are kids.

The power of change lies in our hands. We have the power and we can do it. Change for the better. Don't blame your circumstances. You have a choice. You always have.

Choose to be better.

I checked that article after I read yours. It shocked me and literally made me cry. 🥺 How can his parents think they can make him happy only with money??? No caring, love or teaching or anything. So f... sad.

Yes, it is very disturbing for children, especially very young ones, to be saying they would rather die. I thought running away was a bad thought, but dying speaks of so much despair. It would surprise adults, parents especially, how much hugging their kids make them more secure even when things go wrong.

The main problem I see today is, today's generation parents don't spend much time with their children. Rather spending and teaching them and giving company to their plays. They just opt out for a smartphone with YouTube video and make themselves busy with some shows or other work. Parenting is the hardest and most blessed job a person gets as they have the power to teach a kid from early, life long lessons, discipline etc. We want a better society after us, we have to spend and teach our kids good. Not through giving them money or whatever they want. But through parental love and care. As those kids who don't get parental love in their growing time. They tend to loose humanity when they grow up.

Kids should really be guided well upon growing up, but what can we do? Some were lucky to have a nice childhood while others are struggling because of the unfair treatment they received from others. But yeah, it is not too late to change for the better so that no kids will think about dying.

What came across my mind the first time was that the little boy was living in penury but I was amazed when you mentioned that he was from a well-to-do home. This leaves one to wonder the kind of emotional wreckage he suffers from. Port child, if we don't love and care for the children, what else would we love and care for?... We should always do well by teaching them the act of doing well, not just speaking well. The young shall definitely grow, and it's our responsibility to make sure than they do not turn out worse.

Oftentimes, the mistake a lot of rich parents make is to splash money at their kids like it is everything. It isn't, but that is not to say it is also not important. Children need to be shown love, for that is how they can learn how to love too.

I like your story, and I do read AirteFM's articles. Children are curious about new things, and they learn faster than adults. I was amazed when our twelve-year-old son complained to our (I and my better half) regular quarreling and suggested, "Why don't you get separated instead of fighting?"

Oh, I really didn't expect you to talk about my article, I felt excited and I started to cry haha. There are children who say a lot of things as children, and yes, you are right, we are not prepared to hear someone tell us that they want to die, luckily I took that moment calmly, maybe if I had been scared or shocked it would have been worse. But it was really hard for me and Luis to hear all the things about this student's family, I am thankful that today he is still alive and living happier than before. I am thankful that he has somehow looked for help in us and in music, he is an excellent person, I hope he will always continue like this.

And thank you for reading my article and talking about this, children really need more love and attention from their parents, it breaks my heart to hear parents say that they don't love their child or that they joke about selling them, it seems terrible to me and makes me cry.

Teach the children the good things, all the things that for their own sake. Children they should love and care. They must teach the good paths. Protect our children. The song is my favorite sir Lee. It's my aunt favorite too sir lee.

Children are innocence. If they are thinking of taking some wrong step then we should lovingly explain everything to them. They just need love. Always treat good to them.
