‘My parents are excited when I say the truth’
Semiloore Ogundare, 7 yrs old
My parents show excitement when they see me study my books without being told. Another thing that makes them excited is when I pray and read the Bible. In addition, I resemble my parents especially my mummy even in complexion and this makes her feel very good about me while daddy is always excited when I smile because I resemble him with that, as well as in character. Whenever I have good grades in school, it is always a time of excitement for my parents.

There are a lot of things that get my parents excited about me. First on the list is when I have good grades in school. The second is, when I give regards or show respect to elders, they are always pleased and it shows all over them. Third, when I wake early to prepare for church or school. I feel it in the way they relate with me.

Another thing I noticed is the delight in them when I help with house chores. My parents feel excited about me when I do my assignments.
