"Children should be seen and not heard."
It's a proverb referring to the children who are
not supposed to speak in the presence of adults.
More often than not, it's used as a way to rebuke
a child who has spoken when he or she should not.
But, most of the times, adults are too engrossed in
their conversations and they tend to ignore the children.
Those poor kids, who are in a dire need to impart an important
information to adults would be rebuked for chipping in. These adults
would dismiss the kids and sent them away.
To most grown ups, kids are a nuisance. They are bothersome.
They are best kept at bay or tucked away somewhere. Hence, kids' voices
are seldom heard. Their little pleas fall on deaf ears. Their voices are liken
to whines and sulks.
However, in actuality, everyone has the right to be heard of.
Every God creature can have their say.
Each of us are equal. Size doesn't really matter in this case.
Thus, whenever your child is tugging at you, do spare them a little time.
Don't just hear but listen to them with an open mind.
They'll feel loved and appreciated if their little voices are heard.
