Short Stories For Kids From Day to Day Life
Story 1 - The Importance of Positive Thoughts.
Once, there was a boy named Shyam. He was 8 years old. He had a lot of friends. It was his routine to meet them at a park near their house. They enjoyed a lot while at the park. One day one of his friends started taking about monsters . This story opened up a lot of conversations about monsters, zombies , ghosts etc.. All the kids weaved stories about them and spoke for a long time.
Shyam carried all this in his mind. After going home, he finished his homework, had dinner and got into bed. The stories kept on spinning in his mind. He wanted to get rid of them but just could not come out of those thoughts. With a disturbed sleep, he woke up for water. But was too scared to go the dining room to fetch water. He wanted to go his parents who were sleeping right in the next room but did not get the courage to go out of his room. Not knowing what to do, he simply sat calm for a while. He suddenly remembered a story narrated by his grandpa about a brave prince who fought with a monster in the dark. Keeping that story in mind, he slowly moved out of the room. It was dark in the passage. He swiftly ran to the dining table, grabbed the water bottle and ran back to his room. He drank some water. By then he realized that the stories running in his mind did not affect him anymore.
This little action of bravery gave him a lot of confidence and courage. He was not afraid anymore!
Often kids get scared about being in the dark. Conversations, cartoons and other forms of horror content can trigger this anxiety further. It is a good idea to encourage kids to talk about what is scaring them and talk them through their fear.
It is also a great idea to speak about stories of bravery and valour to kids. These stories help them build their own courage, when they face tough situations.
Story 2 - Clara Learns to Respect People
Clara was a little girl living in a beautiful big bngalow. She was a darling child to her parent. Everything was handed to Clara on a plate. She did not realize what a privilleged life she was reading.
One day, while having breakfast she accidently bit into a chilli. She yelled at the cook and started fussing. She refused to finish her breakfast and walked away. Her mother had observed this and made a mental note that she has to correct Clara.
A few days later, Clara accidentally bumped into the garbage collector who was emptying the dustbin. She once again fussed and screamed when it was actually her own faluth.
Clara's mother felt very bad for the behavior of her daughter. She decided to have a chat with her kid. A few days after the conversation, she once again fell back to her bad behaviour. Mother decided to drive home the point with a tougher stance this time.
Mother sent all the household help on a break for a week. Clara had to make her own breakfast, she had clean up after eating, she had to help in seggregating the wet and the dry waste, she even had to water the plants in the garden.
fter doing her work for a week Clara slowly realized that all work that she was doing was very hard. The people who do it are essential in our daily life. She felt sorry for treating them bad and asked her mom if she could get a chance to correct her mistakes.
When they all came back from leave, she apologized them for being rude and arrogant and even tried to help them wherever she could
It is very important for us to teach children the importance of all those who serve us. We must learn to respect all human beings and treat each other with dignity.
