Kids are amazing. We sometimes can’t give answers of their questions. They are too sensitive. She is just 6 years old. She cried a lot today just because her mother cooked fish today.
We both were taking lunch and all of a sudden, she beat me. I shouted. She told me – “How much pain you are feeling?” I replied – “Yes, I am not feeling good, but why did you beat me?” She told – “Can’t you understand the pain tolerated by the Fish?” I replied – ” But system is like this, if we don’t eat Fish, we will not get Protein enough and we are eating rice which comes from trees. Trees also have life”
I tried a lot to convince her but everything were in vain. When I became silent, she started crying. Some rice she already ate before crying and she vomited that rice because of crying. I became helpless. I promised her – “Okay , I will not cook fish anymore.” But I know – I can’t keep this promise. Only for controlling the situation, I told a lie.
Here, I taught her how to tell a lie. Here I became silent when she was arguing. But she was not wrong. My explanation was also not wrong. Ultimately I replied her – “God will make you understood, wait for 3-4 years more”.
Was my answer okay? In this situation, what will be your answer?
