Going to the park with Chaaya
This is a true story of a five year old Indian girl
who didn’t have patience. This story teaches children that
patience is everything in life. I believe teaching
patience to children when they are young will help them
deal with stress and having to wait. This story can teach
children that having patience is important.
One summer morning, Chaaya woke up and yelled
excitedly, “Mommy and Daddy are taking me to the park
Chaaya raced out of bed to wake up her mommy to help
her brush her teeth.
Chaaya’s mom, Indira, also brushed her teeth. They
sang a little song that went, “Lets brush our teeth, up
down up, side to side, not forgetting your tongue.”
Chaaya’s daddy, Sunil, was changing John’s diaper.
John is Chaaya’s baby brother. While daddy was getting
John ready, Chaaya decided to get herself dressed.
She put on her T-shirt and pants and combed her hair all by
Mommy set the table for breakfast.
Daddy, John, and Chaaya came downstairs for breakfast.
They all sat down to eat breakfast. “Burp” went
Chaaya. “Can we go?
now? I’m ready.”
“Chaaya, you haven’t had any juice yet, have a sip,”
said Daddy.Chaaya got upset, turned her nose up, and
refused to drink her juice.
Mommy said, “If you don’t drink some juice, you’ll get
thirsty at the park.”
Chaaya made up her mind and drank all her juice as
fast as she could. “Slow down,” said Daddy.
“It’s clean up time” said Mommy. Mommy and Daddy
cleaned up the table and
washed the dishes. Chaaya was running out of patience.
“Can we go now?” said Chaaya.
“Chaaya, there are a few chores Daddy and I must do
before we go to the park, ”said mommy. Daddy packed the
cooler with ice while Mommy packed John’s diaper
Chaaya was getting more and more impatient. She
crossed her arms and started to whine. “let’s goooo!, she
Daddy made sure to pack the first-Aid-kit and the
Mommy packed a few snacks as well
Chaaya stood by the door with her little brother John.
“Waaaaaaaaaaa” Little John started crying. “What’s
wrong?” Chaaya replied
to Little John.
Mommy came rushing with John’s BO BO. “Aaaw he’s just
hungry” Mommy said.
“Can we go now”? cried Chaaya. “Not yet,” said mommy.
“Why don’t you pack some of your things to take to the
Chaaya went up to her room. she packed her jump
+rope, bubble gum, her doll, and a piggy bank.
“Chaaya, come downstairs, we’re leaving,” Daddy
Chaaya jumped up with excitement and ran down the
stairs, forgetting her back pack.
Daddy placed John in his car seat while Mommy strapped
Chaaya into her booster
Off they went to the park. “Oh no, I forgot my
backpack!” screamed Chaaya.
Daddy pulled into the parking lot, opened the trunk
and surprised Chaaya with her backpack. “Surprise!” said
They all played and played until Chaaya said…….
“Mommy and Daddy, I’m tired. Can we go now?”
