Mothers Day Poem composed by my 8 year old daughter

Is it the generation gap or kids being more independent these days!

When my daughter gave me this poem with a Mother's Day self decorated card, I was left speechless! I expected the decorated card, but a well versed and thought poem like this was something I did not expect from my academically well performing above average daughter.

When I look back at my childhood, I was academically above average too! But never did I feel independent enough to come up with my own thoughts and expressions like this. So I wonder if it is the generation gap between me and my daughter, or just the general fact that kids are smarter and more independent in thoughts and actions these days!


Bravo Mothers!

Mothers


Mothers are nice,

Mothers are cool:

Mothers take us to

places like school.



Mothers are neat,

Mothers are strong:

Mothers take care of things

when something goes wrong.



Mothers are kind,

Mothers are sweet:

Mothers give all

sorts of treats.



Think of how much

your mother loves you:

So on mothers day,

think about what you should do!

I've just had my first child (6 month old daughter). I've been discussing things like this with my grandmother and she's pointed out the fact that kids are forced to mature a lot earlier. For instance in my grandmother's time and even in my mother's time, kids did not goto daycare or kindy etc... they stayed home with their mum all the way till they started school. Nowadays kids are in daycare from a young age, out and about, goto playgroups and fancy restaurants etc. - all of which did not exist a few decades ago. I think kids are learning to think for themselves earlier and also forced to grow up earlier. I plan to keep my little girl as playful as I can for as long as I can!
