Quest #AtoZChallenge

“Mummy,” Sid was at his worst behaviour today.

“I cannot find it anywhere”; “Did you throw it away?”

Alka knew where he had left it but his temper and inability to think under pressure made it tough for him to act so she maintained silence.

“Mumaaaaa,” he continued again but a chilled glass of juice brought him to a halt.

“When you love it so much you should even take care of it. Come we will search for it, together,” She said as if lending a helping hand.

Gradually after going through different places, she guided him to his goal.

She had realised that only if he would taste the sense of loss he would cherish the presence of his belongings. While helping him in quest of his lost souvenir she had imparted an important lesson.

Spoon feeding takes a child nowhere instead, we have to guide them through their quest in life. Lessons of life start at home.What do you think?

This post is a part of the A to Z Challenge 2016. Today's letter is  Q.


  1. Sounds like some good parenting advice to me.


  2. Kids who have to earn it, or look for it, do learn better to care for those things.

  3. Great advice! I definitely think that spoon feeding kids is happening way too much. My middle school students just want to know the answers instead of thinking for themselves of how to solve the problem! Great post!
