The Mom was helpless for a while and left him to his own.. The child too was not less.. He was just adamant and didn't budge even an inch.. And silence alone ruled for a while..
The Grand Pa saw all that for a while and just mentioned to the daughter, "Dear! The boy has to be naughty and noisy.. No child should be silent even for a moment unless he / she is tired.. The punishment is too much for his natural behavior.. Take him nearer, give him what he wants and let him play around!"
The daughter shot back, "Dad! It's easy for you to say all that.. If he does not listen to me now, tomorrow he will not listen to others too and none would like him.. And that is going to be a big problem for me and for him too.. He needs to be disciplined for a while.. There's nothing wrong in this!" she said with all firmness..
The Grand Pa knew that indiscipline is a problem with children but his question was.. 'Does a child being naughty come under that?' But that was not the time for him to ask his daughter anything as she was already furious with the boy and decided to implement her own style of bringing him to her line..
Some time passed..
The child rolled over on the floor, lied down to a side for a while, started gazing to a corner next to that but in between was trying to look at his Mom expecting some thing to happen.. And he equally noticed his helpless Grand Pa silently watching him.. But the Mom knowing well the boy's tricks never yielded even though she was observing him from a side..
Soon the limit reached, there was no go for the child, his reference seemed to be lost and he burst into a big cry suddenly..
The Mom instantly reacted and comforted the child but still she had her own firmness in her mind..
"Dear! I like you only if you do what I want.. Then I'll give you everything and take you wherever you want to go.. Will you just do what I tell?"
The boy could not believe that.. He was almost in low spirits but the way shown by his Mom gave him a tremendous boost..
"Mommy! Can I have my bicycle for a ride?" he requested in return..
The Mom said, "Yes! You will have your bike.. So now do what I say.. OK?"
It was too much for the Grand Pa... "It's over, isn't it? Why test him further? What other great things he has to do now? Just take him nearer and comfort him!" he ordered the daughter..
Strangely, she never heeded to his advice and instead of listening him she said, "Dad! Please.. I want the boy to do this..You be sitting there in silence!"
The Grand Pa had no go there and instead of arguing with his daughter, he decided to do what she wanted.. But within, he was feeling bad for his Little Grand Son under going all that disciplining..
The Mom turned to her Kid and said, "Dear! Go to your Grand Pa, put your hands round him and repeat what I say!"
The Little One instantly did that without saying a word..
"Now say.." continued the Mom..
'Grand Pa! I love Mommy very much..
I love you and Dad too..
I'll listen to what all Mommy says..
I'll not trouble Mommy, you and Dad!'
The child did say that ditto and again looked at his Mom for further instructions.. That looked to be too much for the Grand Pa but he just stayed there unmoved for the moment..
"Now hug him closing your eyes!"
The Little One quickly did all that 1:1 but as he closed his eyes, he secretly opened one to see what his Mommy would say further which the Grand Pa could equally see..
The Mom with a smile she said, "Now you are a good boy.. Take your bike and go with your Grand Pa!"
That's all.. Next moment, the loud Wordings..
"Hi! The bicycle is mine now.. Am going!"
"Yeah! The bicycle is yours now.. Am coming!"
Simultaneously reverberated the surroundings with the Little One and his dear Grand Pa jumping in joy and instantly the child ran towards the bench where his bag was kept with an ecstatic smile on his face, grabbing his cap and putting it on his head reversed, got onto bike and pushed off at a great speed
With the aged Grand Pa in a double ecstasy equally running behind the boy to the astonishment of the Mom herself and a few nearby visitors to the Park for a while!
