Moral Mondays: “When your blood is boiling…” – Stevie


It made my blood boil to see Stevie. Aged three he no language apart from his screaming, zero social skills and no idea of love and affection.

I had said to his parents they needed to get some help with his development. They thought he was just slow and would soon catch up to his peers. But I kept thinking of him in ten years, when he may well be out of control, unable to cope, possibly in trouble with the law.

Meanwhile he sat in the corner, rocking to himself and the clock on the wall ticked another minute.

  1. It’s tough to witness families who don’t show concern. As a parent we have to be on the ball as much as we can with every part of their developing years.

    Interesting piece. Stevey is in a real tough situation. It’s hard kids with no manners, who do what they like. Can be frustrating. On the other hand, maybe Stevey is lagging behind developmentally. It’s the kind of thing time will tell, but hopefully, his parents look into it first. But I do feel for the other people like your main character who have to deal with his behaviour. Great job Michael 🙂

    Great story. Another moral for this could be that parents need to pay more attention to their children. Especially when they’re young, because once they get to a certain age, it’s going to be really hard to discipline bad behavior that (due to a parent’s lack of concern) they learned was ok. A great lesson for anyone with young kids!
