Question:

Was Kezia’s father right to punish her? What kind of a person was he? You might find some of these words useful in describing him:

Answer:

Kezia’s father was a very busy man. He loved his daughter Kezia but he could not show it. Every morning before going to work he used to come into her room and gave her a goodbye kiss. He never talked to her kindly. He often found fault with her speech. He was hard working and strict too. He was so tired that he could not play with his daughter. One day he had to punish Kezia because of a mistake of hers. Kezia’s father had written a speech on some papers. Kezia had made a pin-cushion for her father on his birthday. She needed paper to stuff the pin-cushion. She tore those papers and put them into the cushion. So, her father punished her. But it was not right to beat her. He could have made Kezia realise her mistake with love.
