A: Hi Guys! what’s new?

B: Nothing… holidays are usually boring.

C: Yes… Parents around.

A: So what?

D: Nice to have them at home. Or else they are usually all dressed and hurrying?

B: It’s better that way. At least they don’t tell us what to do.

A: Why does someone have to tell you what to do, if you do what you have to do.

C: They are all the time lecturing us on time management, mobile and studies. No more topics left under the sun to discuss.

B: True that!

D: We discuss politics, bollywood, hollywood, and even relatives.

A: Don’t you tell them about your friends and teachers?

C: Friends!! The minute I say friend… there is a siren at home.

A: Why?

C: My friends are categorised into two sections; one whom I call friends and the second set consists of whom my parents call my friends. Hence, I detest talking about friends.

D: Then what do you talk about?

C: I don’t talk… I listen.

A: Ok, now listen to me… Ha… Ha… ok hear this, the reason I called you all is that today is my Dad’s birthday and mom wants to give him a surprise but she doesn’t know what and how. Pool in some ideas!

B: Does you mom discuss all this with you? Great!

A: Of course. Why?

B: My mom is always in the kitchen when I am around. I don’t even think she remembers Dad’s birthday.

A: And on holidays?

B: She takes art sessions.

A: Wow, she is an artist.

B: Yes, and when she is free she is busy cooking for us, and only telling me to either study or arrange my cupboard.

D: Guess what I found when I arranged my cupboard last week. Our UNO pack of cards that we used to play every summer vacation.

C: My dad keeps telling me to clean my shelf and study table, as if I am even going to study.

A: Why… don’t you study?

C: Who studies all the time? I study only for the exams.

B: Same here, but I do a little math homework otherwise a call goes to my Dad.

A: Anyway guys, it’s my Dad’s birthday…

D: We remember… how about getting a cake?

A: I have done that. Something different.

B: Why different? Is you dad going to appreciate it. All that my dad would say “you shouldn’t have spent so much money”.

A: I don’t want to think about that. My mom and I want to surprise him… that’s her idea. Do you get it?

B: How will I get it when my dad surprises me every time with a new reason to shout at me?

A: That’s ridiculous. Why does your dad shout at you?

B: That’s because he doesn’t like me.

A: Why doesn’t he like you? What does he say that makes you feel that way?

B: He calls me useless all the time.

A: And why do you think he does that?

B: Because when he comes home, I am sleepy and just lazing around.

A: Do you greet him when he comes?

B: No

A: Do you tell him about your school?

B: No

A: Then what do you do?

B: Nothing.

A: No wonder he calls you useless.

C: ha.. ha.. ha… hee… hee… hee…

A: Quiet here, My Dad’s bithday is coming to an end dicussing his dad, and you are laughing.

C: Sorry Dude.

D: My dad walks in with a contagious smile and always has something hilarious to tell us.

B: My dad is hilarious, he walks in with the phone on one ear, walks straight into the room, and comes back with the phone on the other ear.

A: I think you must have dinner with your dad and prove it to him that you are not useless.

B: Tried that too… he only asks how much did I study today and whether I have a test tomorrow? For both which I always reply in the negative and this upsets him. And then he goes back to the ear-changing action on the phone.

C: I sneak into my room the minute dad comes. He’a always asking me silly things like do you know what happened in the parliament today?

D: I wait for my Dad.

B: I  go to sleep before he arrives.

A: It’s my Dad’s birthday today!!!!

    • Family bonding nowadays happens only on weekends or vacation. I do believe it must happen daily. I remember a friend of mine saying that our school going children need an hour in the morning and about 3 hours in the evening. We must give them that DAILY.

  1. Ha ha ha… this is so interesting. Trust me…sometime I sneak pick into my son’s insta messages. They talk like this only. They don’t discuss topics, they just talk whatever comes to their minds. Wonderful.

  2. Bonding with kids is very important. Life is not all about marks and exams. It is also not about buying them whatever they ask for. Knowingly or unknowingly some parents fail to develop a good bonding with their children. This can have long term impact in their whole life.
