If you really think that “ Maturity “ comes with age, you’ll have to think twice.

Well, let’s get started.  What level of maturity do you expect from children? Obviously, that of their age level – like being attentive in class, not quarelling with one another, respecting elders, sharing their things and keep on demanding toys, stationeries, dresses, chocolates etc.

Here, I would like to share few instances with you that will surely compell you to think atleast twice about your mindset on maturity levels of a child.

Reshma, a Fifteen year old girl shares her personal thoughts with us saying that – “ मैडम, अम्मी बोलती है इस बार गाँव चलेंगे तो वहीँ तुम्हारी शादी कर देंगे. लेकिन मैडम मैं ऐसा नहीं करुँगी, मुझे पढ़ना है, कुछ बनना है.”

Tamanna, an Eight year old shares her pain while talking about her family – “मैडम,अब्बू कुछ काम नहीं करते, घर पर ही रहते हैं, अम्मी पेट से है, हमारे लिए भाई लाएगी. स्कूल की फीस लगती नहीं, एक टाइम का खाना भी मिल जाता है स्कूल में, कॉपी पेंसिल आप दे ही देते हो और बाकी घर का खर्च बड़ी बहन करती है. लेकिन मैडम, मुझे उसका काम पर जाना बिलकुल अच्छा नहीं लगता.”

In another incident revealing high level of maturity sometimes shown by children, once  on reaching the EastSonsGoodWorks Center on a scorching Summer day, surprisingly, we found the children sitting without fan ON, on being asked why so, one of the students replied – “मैडम, महिमा ने बोला कि अभी मत चलाओ पंखा, वैसे भी मैडम हमारे लिए कितने पैसे खर्च करती हैं, इसलिए हमने पंखा नहीं चलाया “

What to say, many a times we find ourselves very small before kids. We fall short of words to praise these kids who show a high level of maturity which is hard to find even in elders. On learning life’s lessons from these little children, we feel overwhelmed and really feel great for being a small reason to bring smile on these pure hearted innocent faces.
