I was inspired to write this article after reading @Yen article asking for some advice, I understand her part because she is not really related to those parents by blood, it was her in-laws. She is good and doing her best to understand her inlaws. This article is intended for those who cannot afford to take care of their parents, this is for me also because later in life I will be experiencing this one when my mom gets older. If you want to give some advice for @Yencheck out her article under the link.
Some parents do not take care of their children well. But normally parents will take care of their child's welfare although they are not perfect they did their best, especially when we are young our parents patiently took care of us from cleaning our pee and poop. From teaching us to walk or guide us and help us to stand up every time we stumble and fall. Patiently feeding us when we don't want to eat, patiently taking care of us when we are sick.
Nowadays, children hardly take care of their parents when they were old. When they're too old and act like a child again due to their old age. Children cannot stand wiping their poops and pees. It's really sad because instead of paying back the care they had once give us, they will choose to send them home for the aged or just let them wander on the street or in the house without companions.
Yes, we all have liabilities especially when we had our own family. That taking care of them is too many responsibilities and obligations adding up, but come to think of it? They are your parents who had been taking care of you once when you were young when you know nothing about this world.
If children cannot take care of them they should at least help them to be sent in the home for the aged people, so somebody can take care of them and look after them. If children are a really busy person and hardly find time to spare to look after them. Instead of abandoning them, yes it is their responsibility to take care of their children but is it also our responsibility as children to take care of our parents right? Is it what we called payback time? It is really sad when this saying is really proven true "Parents can take care of 12 dozens children, but children can't take care of one parent".
We should love our parents if we can't love them enough because of the things they did, then just at least be thankful that without them you can't be brought in this world. Some sarcastic people may say, I didn't even want my existence in the first place (I am one of those lol). Yes, you didn't want it but you can't do anything about it anymore, you are here now so just be rational enough to do what is right and what is not. Always remember you will get old too sooner, life is an echo what you did will always bounce back to you just like an echo, karma is b*tch!
