Essay from a Child – Emotional Story

A teacher from Primary School asks her students to write a essay about, parents, son, time  what they would like God to do for them.

At the end of the day while marking the essays, she read one that made her very emotional.
Her husband, that had just walked in saw her crying and asked her: What happened?

 She answered:  Read this. It’s one of my students essays.

Oh God, tonight I ask you something very special: Make me into a television. I want to take its place. Live like the TV in my house. Have
my own special place, And have my family around ME. To be taken seriously when I talk. I want to be the centre of attention and be
heard without interruptions or questions. I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives when it is not working. Have the
company of my dad when he arrives home from work, even when he is tired. And I want my mom to want me when she is sad and upset, instead of ignoring me. And I want my brothers to fight to be with me. I want to feel that family just leaves everything aside, every now and then, just to spend some time with me. And last but not least make it that I can make them all happy and entertain them. Lord I don’t ask you for much. I just want to live like every TV!! 

At that moment the husband said:

‘My God, poor kid. What horrible parents!

She looked up at him and said:

‘That essay is our son’s!!!

    Oh my God… The last line completely took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting that.
    Beautiful story. The kid made his parents realize how horribly they were treating him, ignoring him, not taking him seriously. He must have been miserable. His parents must have felt horrible reading the essay.
