So happy I cried today

As a mother of a 15 year old boy it's hard to know if I ever get through to him. But today he sent me text that made me feel he does actually pay attention, if not to my words then at least to my actions. It reads "I want to buy my fourth hours fish. It is a pretty violet betta in a 7 gallon tank with nothing but gravel in it. It looks sad and lonely, and I feel sorry for it. " I know it's a little thing but it made me happy, and proud. :)

Sweet!!! I wish my 15 year old son would show more interest. He does change the water for me if I ask him though.

Good for you raising your child with compassion! If only everyone could look at that sort of situation and see it was wrong, but then there wouldn't be those sorts of things.

Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?
