One day they break your skillet, the next they melt your heart.

Steven wrote this for his writing class today:

Every ten year old should have a mother . A mother makes sure she/he is kept safe and warm. She provides education, and she’s always there when they are sick, sad or if they have questions about life. Also a mother can have a great influence on a ten year old’s life. At ten years of age a child might not even know the meaning of love. Love can play a big role in a child’s life. If a child grew up not being loved then that child is not gonna be very loving. He’s, gonna be a nasty person to be around. Maybe the reason I’m saying this is because when I was about 6-9 I didn’t have a mother. I can tell the difference between having a mother and not having a mother. In my point of view, what I have experienced I think every ten year old should have a mother.
