mom I'm hungry! when is the rice going to be ready?
-the rice is boiling stop crying!
kid falls asleep crying and waiting.
Mom quietly wipes her tears sees her son sleeping in the corner.. she lifts the steel plate on top of the pan and drains the water she was boiling.
She hates lying to her son.
she boils water and gives him hope of food to make him fall asleep... what else can she do when there is no hope?
