Orphans With Parents

Recommended Posts

One for the parents, not to blame, but just to make us think. Are we doing everything in the best interests of our children? This article seriously makes you wonder about the state of parenthood.
Generally, when I get home the kids have me to themselves - then it's me time after they've been tucked away to sleep. <3
I'm thankful for that, and can't wait for my next two days off with them. <3

Here's a taste of the article; click the link at the end to read it in full:

Recently a teacher from Primary School asked her students to write an essay about what they would like for them…

At the end of the day while marking the essays, she read one that made her very emotional. Her husband, that had just walked in saw her crying and asked her, “What happened?”

She answered, “Read this. It’s one of my student’s essays.”

“Oh Allah, tonight I ask you something very special: Make me into a television. I want to take its place. Live like the TV in my house. Have my own special place and have my family around ME. To be taken seriously when I talk… I want to be the centre of attention and be heard without interruptions or questions. I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives when it is not working.

Have the company of my dad when he arrives home from work, even when he is tired and I want my mum to want me when she is sad and upset, instead of ignoring me… and… I want my brothers to fight to be with me… I want to feel that family just leaves everything aside, every now and then, just to spend some time with me and last but not least make it that I can make them all happy and entertain them… Allah I don’t ask you for much… I just want to live like every TV.”

At that moment the husband said, “My God, poor kid. What horrible parents!”

She looked up at him and said, ‘That essay is our son’s!”
