Today, I want to talk about a very serious thing that occurs in most family. That’s the affect to children from their parents.
What parents are doing is what their children are doing. If you are happy, then I will be happy. But if you always sad, keep fighting with each other all the day, then I will be sad and I won’t know how to be good to people. That’s because you’re my parents and you affect my behaviour and personality every day, every hour and every moment.
There’s one of my own personal example. My mom and dad love each other, I am sure. But they always fight with others, saying things like “I hate you!”, “why did I married with you!” or “we have to divorce”. Each times their words getting mean and meaner.
You know how afraid I feel when you fight? You know how hurt I feel after you curse each other? I feel you are enemies; but we are family!
You know how afraid I feel when you fight? You know how hurt I feel after you curse each other? I feel you are enemies; but we are family! I become sad all the day and live in the fear. I just don’t get it. Why do people saying bad things to hurt other’s heart? I know you don’t want to do that, because it’s not only hurting the person you married, it’s hurting me and your heart as well. I hate yell and cry, but you do it every day. You created me out of love, please don’t bring me up in hate!
The doctor’s children have a very big probability of become a doctor, the butcher’s children have a very big probability of become a butcher, and the mean parents’ children have a very big probability of become rude people.
We have to show the good side of us to our children, we have to stop fighting, because they are learning from us, because they worried about us all the time, because love understands love!
But I am sure this is not only one’s fault, if we want to have a happy family, we work it out together. I believe parents can make things right, because they don’t want their children to be sad. I hope all the parents can hold their hands and watching their children grow up, I hope we can all live in love. I really hope.
