Picked my eldest Jovial up from school yesterday, went for a quick lunch( i love having lunch with him, simply because this is the time i can talk to him and he does likewise to me).
Since we still had about 40 minutes to while away before i picked another son of mine Marvell up, i was asking him what he wanted to do in between times,then suddenly we were on the subject of internet cafe and how some of his classmates and school mates bluff their parents that they had to stay back after school but instead they would head to internet cafe.
I asked him if he wanted to go the internet cafe that his friends were at, i said it with the pretext that i wanted to track down his classmate Dwayne for the fun of it, he nodded.
I took him into internet cafe, indeed his friends were there and because most of his friends knew me and they were shocked to see me with Jovial inside the internet cafe, i told them dont worry about us, told them we were just looking.
I sense that my Jovial was in a way enticed to the game there and then , asked if he wanted to play, he looked at him blank and i said go ahead for about 30 minutes. I said this is the exception i made for him simply because i wanted him to see what his friends were doing there,,(hmmmm dont know correct to do what i have done or not)
Done with 30 minutes (time to pick up Marvell) in the car, i asked him would he be like his friends bluffing me and going to the internet cafe without my knowledge,he said he would never do it and i trusted him.
I pray to God that this child of mine would grow up to be a fine young man and have the fear of God in him.
P/S : To earn trust is to give love.
