Silly Kid

Adrian was asked to wait for his mother who would just go to a nearby uphill store in order to buy siling-haba. He waited for her at the store few meters away from their house.

The store owner, Delia, sat with the kid, who was humming while drinking the milk man he was given in order not to go after his mother. Delia asked the kid what he was singing. The kid didn't respond. She asked who taught the song and the kid answered it was taught by his mother.

How about your father, what did he teach you? Delia probed. Then the kid answered, nothing.

Nothing? Repeated Delia. Yes, nothing, said the kid. The only thing my father know is Adrian. He keeps telling me to write Adrian over and over and over. It's the only thing that he know.

Delia burst out laughing and could not stop herself from showing it to the kid. What a silly remark from such a young boy. But the four-year old never even laughed. He was so serious it was so cute a sight. According to Delia.

Delia related the story to us and we also laughed as well. Then when I saw the kid, I explained to him that his father only wanted him to master writing his name because classes is about to start this September. The kid was listening, I know, even though he was moving his eyeballs and was humming.

How silly of kids to think differently from their parents who only wanted them to learn something. But then, from the point of view of the child, it was mere repetition of a task.

Therefore, the creativity of the parent or tutor is of utmost importance so that the kid won't be fed up. Wow, kid! As if. Haha! You are the one who is fed up? It would be those who will teach you if you don't cooperate. But of course, this is the reality that adults have to face. We needed to attend to our youngsters whether we are busy or not. Or look for people who will cater to our kids so they won't be left in the air.
