BEWARE PARENTS! CHILDREN NOTICE EVERYTHING
Screaming and squirming, he was born to the couple. Couple, they were for the world. Foes, they were to each other. Every other day, they slipped into a scuffle which sometimes lasted for whole day while the new born slept peacefully, incognizant of his mother's weeping.
Some years passed and at the age of nine, the child's world was bliss to him with ecstasy all around. But, his parents flummoxed him because there relationship was still a blend of arguments and misunderstandings. While they fought, he just stood there, observing his father berating his mother, who just wailed all night. The reason of their contempt was beyond his understanding. But, a broad smile on his mother's face back in the morning would make him believe that everything was normal.
The family waded through another ten years. Nothing changed except their ages. Their son touched maturity and understood what he did not as an immature. But, surprisingly, he was not bothered at all. To see his father shouting and sometimes slapping his mother and to listen to her whimpering was a routine to him. 'Normal', it was to him.
Before he could spot a crestfallen soul behind his mother's smile, he had miscontrued the concept of family. He began to believe in his father's way of running a family. While he observed his parents and registered in his mind this wrong concept, there was no one to show him the right path.
His parents had unknowingly rubbed off their values on him. It was not long before he began ruining his own family life.
