I was writing a piece about how food gets spoiled and not children. I will link it to the finished piece later. I came up with the work when I asked my son from the first little girl what he saw. He said a spoiled child. Another family member about 3 years old said that the little girl was sad. My son is 19. I found this interesting.
Here the girl was promised a hot air balloon and was supposed to be satiated with what she has obviously had before. Simply, if the parent/adult has no intentions of granting a child his/her wishes – don’t. The child has every right to expect what has been promised. when this little girl gets older she will either be the head of a corporation or if her spirit has been broken – nothing close of her expectations. Again, its just not the fault of the children if the acceptable character of the child isn’t there.
