Have you ever witnessed such a scene like this? You are in a restaurant, then suddenly you hear a boy shouting non stop demanding this and that, raising his voice a few notches higher if his demands are not met,so what do you think of the boy or even the parent of the boy?
Probably you'll think this boy is not well disciplined or you might take a look at the boy's parents,saying they must be kind of a worst parents. Most of the times, we are wrong about our own presumption as far as this situation is concerned.
Over the weekend, i spent two days with 4 boys at a beach resort in Penang, two boys are of my own, another two being the boys of my lovely wife's friend. One of the boys of my friend happens to have the traits like i mentioned earlier, he is a wonderful boy,it is just that he shouts instead of talks, he will demand an answer untill he gets it no matter what.
May be it is an inborn trait that this wonderful boy slightly different from the rest, harder to control, can easily drive any adult to the wall at any one time and again you will never know what it is like to have a child like that.
I really salute my dear friend for her patience in handling, educating or even disciplining her son,not even once i heard her raising her voice or scolding him and this i reckon is what i call the Mother's Love.
So, next time if you happen to be in a restaurant and you happen to hear a boisterous child, shouting here and there, please don't pass unfriendly remarks, please don't give that child a awkward look and please don't stare at the parents with look that lacks social grace, you will never know what it is like when their child is different than yours.
P/S : No child is different as far as a mother is concerned
