Every Dot Counts...a message from every child to their parents.


Hi Parents, here is a cute letter from your kids...

 

Dear mummy and daddy,                                 

 

‘Every Dot Counts’- The ‘Dot’ has been an important part of my life every since I was born. Remember the little black ‘dot’ that you would apply on my forehead so that ‘no evil eye’ can harm me? As I grow older a lot of dots will be important and make a difference. You will tell me to ‘Dot’ my ‘i’. When I start writing sentences you will tell me to put a ‘Dot’ (full stop) at the end of the sentence. ‘Dot to dot’ activities of join the dots will teach me how to see the whole picture by joining the parts.

 

But there is another ‘Dot’ dear mummy and daddy that is very important for my future, the ‘Dot’ on your pointer finger! And this ‘Dot’, only you can get for me………by going to vote.

 

This ‘Dot’ will teach me about responsibility, when I see my parents taking their responsibility seriously I will learn a life long lesson on responsibility. This ‘Dot’ will also inculcate in me the ability to take informed decisions. I will see you discuss and debate and decide and it will teach me that for important decisions in life it is better to be informed. And did you know that this ‘Dot’ of yours is also very much like that ‘dot to dot’ activity that you give me? well, just like by joining all the dots I get to see a picture in my book, similarly by joining all the ‘Dots’ that each one of you gets on your pointer finger, the future of this country will be decided, the country where I am going to grow up. 

 

 

So mummy and daddy teach me all of the above and more, teach me that if you want to point a finger then it should be the one with a ‘Dot’! So please go and get a ‘Dot’ this year on your pointer finger as Every Dot Counts’.

 

My school has asked me to remind you to go and vote and get a ‘Dot’. So, this year make it count for me and my future. This year on voting day I will sing this song for you-

Where is pointer?

Where is pointer?

Here I am, here I am

Do I see a dot here?

Do I see a dot here?

Yes I do, yes I do.

I love you, I love you.

From your loving child.

 

So parents listen to your kids and when you choose who to vote for, think of your child’s future.

Thank you maam for reminding us about 'DOT ' for which each and every individual has an right to vote for which we all need to take a correct decision and not miss the chance of DOT because this is going to give our children a BRIGHT FUTURE. I will really create awarness by singing  '' Where is a pointer ? '' where this will make think people yes I will do it and its my right to do it !   A beautiful example : When mom puts a dot on the childs forehead just to save from bad evil eye so the same way everybody needs to put the "DOT " on the pointer finger which will help to create future of each and every individual and save the world by bad evil .
