Father Son Conversation

One day, the father was doing some work and his son came and asked, “Daddy, may I ask you a question?” Father said, “Yeah sure, what it is?” So his son asked, “Dad, how much do you make an hour?” Father got bit upset and said, “That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?” Son said, “I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?” So, the father told him that “I make Rs. 500 per hour.”

“Oh”, the little boy replied, with his head down. Looking up, he said, “Dad, may I please borrow Rs. 300?” The father furiously said, “if the only reason you asked about my pay is so that you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or other nonsense, then march yourself to your room and go to bed. Think why you are being so selfish. I work hard every day and do not like this childish behavior.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money? After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down and started to think, “Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that Rs. 300 and he really didn’t ask for money very often!” The man went to the door of little boy’s room and opened the door.“  Are you sleeping, son?” He asked. “No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy. “I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier”, said the man. “It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you, Here’s the Rs.300 you asked for”.

The little boy sat straight up, smiling “oh thank you, dad!” He yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled some crippled up notes. The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at his father.

“Why do you want money if you already had some?” the father grumbled. “Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied. “Daddy I have Rs. 500 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you”. Father was dumbstruck.

Moral: It’s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life! We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

    I have two children girl 19 and boy 9, their mother (my wife) passed away 5yrs ago. I advise them to follow my instructions no matter wrong or right, if they need help of their mother they must ask me free or openly i am there not as father but mom, if from father i am father. My Pray since death of their mother is GOD CHANGE MY CHARRACTER to this CHILDREN to SEE and FEEL their MOTHER OUT OF ME WHEN THEY NEED HER AND FATHER WHEN THEY NEED ME.

  100. Such stories, with something important to say, are really valuable, especially for teachers, who sometimes have to educate both children and their parents. I am one of the authors of a textbook, so I find these stories quite precious. I still am not sure I may use any of them in my lessons. How is it possible to get the permission? Where from? best regards, Maria

  124. i loved this

  125. 10q i is good advice

    August 4, 2015 at 11:53 am

    every thing is ok if you are hard working man

  126. Having read this story, I am touched of the kid’s loneliness. He needs father’s care. Perhaps it happened and there was a boy who asked money for buying his daddy’s time. But in reality it is so hard find out a boy like in the story. Most boy will keep playing while there’s no daddy home. Yeah, I truly get valuable lesson from this story. Keep writing.
    Thank you,

  127. i love this story

  128. I liked this and good job.

  129. woooo I super like this story !!!!!

  130. What a story . Many less boys are there in the world like this boy in the story. World be more greater with this boy who needs his famil

  131. Superb


  133. i do really much appreciate this story, Hoping that many youths out there would be like the man in the story! Such a good story that leads to realization how important time and open communications in our love ones. We should not put our self always facing at work cos there so such monetary equivalent in our time and effort to our love ones.

  134. Superb story I loved it

  159. Nise balad(story)

  160. Good story

  161. Very nice story…. really heart touching…

  162. Smart Story

  163. Wooooo, have loved it,it really teaches the bussy parents of today who sacrifice no time for their beloved ones

  164. Thos story is not interesting Tendo Angella have said Wooooo but I am feeling like boring

  165. Parents must give time for their children no matter how busy are they.

  166. I remember sharing the same story to my wife not realizing that tears keep falling in my eyes. My wife hugged me tight calming me down by saying – you always fulfill our duties as a father to our daughter.
    As a father, sometimes you don’t realize that you’re working hard to suffice the needs and wants of your family…and I think that’s enough.
    However, it’s not about what you can provide is more important, it’s how much time you give to them because best moment in life cannot be bought by money.

  167. i thk the story is quite interesting

  168. wowowowowowoww :))))

  169. i think uma rufus has not understood the story . its interesting and moral story .i liked the story

  170. lovely story

  171. Wow! This story makes me want to do the same thing with my Mommy.

  172. really nice story. loved it. it’s normal in these that the child spends most of his time waiting for their parents to have quality time with their family. We need to understand that childhood happens only once. Fathers are for good.
