As Geet drove along the expressway with her ten year old,

“Mumma..Can people only related by blood love each other?”

“No honey..Don’t you see dad and I love each other, yet not related by blood?”

“So mumma..Are you saying that people not related by blood can love too?”


“Then why can’t you and grandma love each other, why do you two always seem to be in intense rivalry when it comes to gaining attention from dad?โ€

The kid’s innocent question dumbfounded Geet.

It is indeed true that children observe more, even more than we wish for them to know.

Formerly a Software professional, I have been a homemaker for a while. My life revolves around my two daughters. Having started writing only recently, I just discovered what I have been missing all along in my otherwise almost-perfect life. I want to create postive content inspiring minds across all age groups.

  1. Kids have more common sense…. Time we woke up the kid sense in us..

    Very nice post

    This kid has done a great service. Through your pen, he has reached a wider audience for his debate on smoother relationships.

  2. Very meaningful story.. And this is the real fact of life that children’s observation power is more than us.. And sometimes they teach us good lessons.

  3. Children are so introspective – they have much more depth and understanding than we give them credit for! If we only take the time, energy, and patience to speak to children as if they are equals – their ideas and thoughts mattered – they would reveal a whole new world to us…and the world would be more open to them. Great story! Thank you for joining us this week ๐Ÿ–ค
