Money and family

Money and family

Rama’s family is very big. Rama is a hard worker and he is the sole breadwinner of the family. He has three kids, two sons and a daughter. He lives along with father and mother. Rama used to work too hard to feed his family. He works for more than 16 hours a day. 

The kids cannot see him as he will leave home early in the morning before they wake-up and reach home aroundmidnight when kids would sleep every day. The entire family eagerly wait to spend quality time with him and the kids miss him so much. 

The children were too curious about Sundays as his father would spend the entire day with them. Unfortunately, to meet the increasing household expenses and educational expenses, Rama took a weekend job to work even on Sundays. 

The kids were very shattered and even Rama’s wife and parents too! The typical routine continued for several weeks and year passed. All the hard work of Rama earned a lot of benefits and he was offered promotion with attractive increment. 

The family moved to a new house, got better clothes and ate healthy foods. However, as usual, Rama continues to earn more and more money. One day his wife asked him ‘why are you running for money? 

We can be happy with what we have now.’ Rama replied, ‘I want to give the best available in the world to all of you and want you to stay happy always.’ Two years passed and Rama hardly spent time with his family. 

The children yearned to have their father at home. Meanwhile, the sincere efforts of Rama reaped him a fortune. He was offered partnership and share in profits. He continued to earn more and more wealth.

 Now, Rama’s family is one of the richest families in the city. They have all the facilities and luxuries. Still, Rama’s children strove to meet their father as he was hardly seen at home. His children turned teens and they are no more kids.

 Now, Rama earned enough wealth to provide a luxurious life to his next five generations. Rama’s family went to their beach house to spend their vacation. His daughter asked, ‘Dad will you please spend one day at home and stay with us here?’ Rama replied, ‘Yes darling, tomorrow for sure, I will join you for the lunch and be with you all for next few days. 

I’m tired of work and need refreshment!’ The entire family became very happy. Unfortunately, the next day, none in Rama’s family were alive as they were washed out in Tsunami! Rama was too busy even to hear the news about Tsunami. 

When he tried to reach his beach house, he saw sea and water everywhere and screamed for his family, He could not even find the dead bodies of his family. He can never have them again, cannot even see them and even by paying millions he cannot get them back to life! He remembered his wife’s words, ‘Why are you running for money? We can be happy with what we have now.’ Money can’t buy everything! From www.kidsworldfund.com.

Safety Around a Strange Dog 

Coming home from school and hoping you won't see the dog who always barks like crazy and runs around? You're not the only one. Kids often get scared of a dog they don't know, especially if that dog is loud and doesn't have an owner nearby. 

To keep your cool around dogs: Never pet or touch a strange dog, even if it runs up to you and seems like it might be friendly. If a dog starts running toward you, don't run. Running away can make the dog want to chase after you — even if it doesn't want to hurt you, its instincts will tell it to chase.

 If a strange dog approaches you, try to stand very still. This may be scary for a minute or two, but often the dog will become bored and walk away. If the dog tries to sniff you, let it sniff — this is its way of checking you out. Walk away from a strange dog very slowly. 

Don't wave your arms around or make a lot of noise because these actions will only excite the dog. Look straight ahead and not into the dog's eyes. If you are very afraid of a strange dog or a strange dog tries to bite or attack you, tell an adult as soon as possible. From kidshealth.org.
