Stop!

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Standing in front of the museum’s new display, Josie looked at the old historical pieces of kitchenware, but she couldn’t imagine using them.

Her boys came with her as their dad was working. She forgot they were there as she was so engrossed in the display. They were rough housing as usual.

Suddenly there was a crash and the old guard yelled, “Stop, where you are!”

Josie came out of her fog to look for her boys. A guard said, “Your boys just broke that display window.”

“Oh no, you didn’t, did you?”

“You can settle it with the curator.”

    What a shame. The kids are far too casual about it. Their attitude needs to change. They sound old enough to know better. There should be no more adult museums for them until they learn how to behave. A good and well-written story, Tessa. —- Suzanne

      Thank you Patricia. I find nowadays the kids are much too casual about everything. They aren’t as well behaved as our kids were. This new generation is getting worse.

        Part of that is the fact both parents are working and the kids are taken care of by special programs that can’t give the same guidance. I know both parents have to work in many cases and that can’t be helped. Also, often families are separated by necessity or divorce and older relatives aren’t there to give guidance and support. Let’s hope they learn as they mature. It could be they’ll be stricter with their own children. —- Suzanne

          Yes today’s economy is the problem with a lot of families and how they raise their children or don’t raise them and leave it up to someone else to do.

      Yes, exactly. I only had one boy so not so much trouble as more than one boy would be. I had 2 girls though and they have their problems as well.

    Oh my. One of those parental moments when you wish the earth would swallow you up. You know, I loved my four so much when they were little. They may not always have thought so, but I did 🙂 I’m finding now, however, that I love them even more as nearing-middle-aged adults who have their own kids, my nine wonderful grands 🙂 Each stage of life has its joys and sorrows. For me, and I know I’m blessed, the joys far outnumber the sorrows.

      So true. I have 4 grands and my daughter is pregnant with her 3rd at age 40. Her oldest is 21 then number 2 is 12 and now the third, but she is high risk. Besides her age she has had numerous miscarriages. She is doing ok so far. Baby does have strong heartbeat.
