    Good day everybody!
    I have just registered with this forum.
    I was wondering if someone could be so kind as to help me.
    I have been searching on the internet for a short story since yesterday already but I haven't found what I have been looking for.
    I am looking for a short story about parenting.
    There might be also good novels about parenting but the problem is that I would then need to find the right part to use as an extract, which requires lots of time and I do not have enough time at my disposal at the moment, unfortunately. Otherwise, if someone knows a suitable excract of a novel, that would be also fine.

    To sum up, I am looking for a short fictional text with the theme of parenting (e.g. a text dealing with very strict parents, or with very loving parents, or how parents teach their children a lesson, of.....)

    I would be very grateful if you could help me with this issue.
    Many thanks in advance!

    Thanks, could you provide me with some titles or direct links?
    It would be great.

    Well, it is nice but I need it for school and it must be known literature. T
    By the way, I need it for senior classe.

    I appreciate your help. Thank you a lot!

    Thanks a lot, again!

    I will have a look at it, immediately.
    Hopefully, I'll find a good extract. I cannot read it through carfully, I can just gallop through it.
