I miss the good old days when I didn't have to worry about anything and just played video games and watched TV all day. School was ridiculously easy, and it was like I didn't have to try to do anything. Growing up sorta sucks. Today, parents like me are most of the time caught up at work the whole day in order
to sustain their child’s need especially for a growing family. There are so
many expenses that have to be prioritized and so many other things that out
technology dictate that we should have.
As a parent,
I notice the huge difference of raising a child now than what it used to be for
our parents. We do not have much shopping mall to go to or fine dining
restaurants to eat at. Family time are usually spent at home with the whole
family and neighbors with home cooked meals or maybe go out and play at the
park or sometimes go out of town to swim in the beach.
kids may be able to search for faraway places using the internet, they may be
able to buy stuff just by going to different online shops and they can actually
play with their friends just by sitting in front of the computer by server
hosted games, chatting or video calling on their mobile devices.
these, parents are now finding ways on how they can cope with their kids that
are slowly depending on technology more than physical relationship. Parents who
are busy at work can call their kids on their phones and even monitor them
online by installing cameras at home when they are away.
spend a lot of time watching videos online, playing games
and so much more. Some parents would even try to do the same not just because
they find it entertaining as well but also because this is what their kids talk
about most of the time and they need to have some knowledge about it too.
searching for some online games one time that my kids usually play; I would
usually get invites on my Facebook account from them asking to send them lives
or what not. I did try to look up a free version of the Minecraft game although I
usually end up landing on a paid gaming site. I don't know what I would do without relieving some stress by playing games to be honest. Mind-numbing fun is what I like to call it.
is good as it makes our lives easier in so many instances although there might
also be some disadvantages if we end up relying on them too much. As a parent,
I try my best to balance work and family as much as I could and if possible
spend my weekends with my children.
come that our kids will be grown ups and would want to spend time mostly with
friends or colleagues and there’s just nothing that we parents can do but to
let them enjoy life. Be with them as much as you can, guide them and watch them
to make them understand how life works, and for any mistake they make, let them
know what they can learn from it.
what my grandma used to say when I was still young, she told me love and
understand my parents as much as I can since they only wanted the best for me,
because if I don’t, the only time that I would realize it is by the time I get to
start my own family as well. Bless her soul!
