    "I got three A's," said the little boy,
    His voice was filled with glee.
    His father said, "If you studied more,"
    "You might have gotten four."

    "Mom, I've got the dishes done,"
    The girl called from the door.
    Her mother answered sharply,
    "Well I hope you swept the floor!"

    "I mowed the grass," the tall boy said,
    "And edged the sidewalks too."
    "I hope you improved," his father said,
    "On the job you usually do."

    The children in the house next door,
    Seemed happy and content.
    The same thing happened over there,
    But this is how that went:

    "I've got three A's," the small boy said.
    His voice was filled with glee.
    His beaming father said, "That's great!"
    "I'm so proud you belong to me!"

    "Mom, I've got the dishes done."
    The girl called from the door.
    Her mother smiled and softly said,
    "Each day I love you more."

    "I've mowed the grass," the tall boy said,
    "And edged the sidewalks too."
    His father answered "Thank you!"
    "For all the helpful things you do!"

    Give a hug, or thanks or praise,
    For the tasks your children do,
    If they're to lead a happy life,
    So much depends on you.

    Heelo Cheer,

    This is a very good one. But I think I act like the first half of the poem...
    Have to turn over a new leaf.

    Regards,

    Abha.

    Dear Cheer,

    I was like the first mother till yesterday and hope that I shall try to be more like the second mother. And thats a promise to myself.

    Thanks for making me realise this lesson on parenting.

    I really love IL.
