Some life lessons I learned from my child

I was picking up crumpled papers in the living room when I found this interesting pieces beneath the sofa. I browsed through the innocent-looking papers to make sure they are not important documents. They were torn pages from my son’s diary who was 10 at the time.

It reads:

Dear Diary,

Today is the first day of our second monthly exam. I studied hard to make my parents proud. I believe that I won’t get a “too low” or “too high” grade but I’ll do my best to pay all the sacrifices and to give thanks for all of their hardwork. If  I wouldn’t pass, I will promise to my parents that I will do study and study so hard next time. I won’t give up all their hard work and sacrifices.

I felt a bit guilty after reading it because sometimes I scold my son for not being able to study his lessons. I thought he’s not listening whenever I talk endlessly about the importance of studying. He’s listening after all and he even made a promise to do his best and never gives up whenever he fails. I’m so proud of my boy. Don’t worry Mommy will be a little more lenient next time. ^_^

I’m just wondering why he tear that portion off his diary…
