Yourself Or Your Children, Who Would You Want To Suffer More?

I remember my dad and lots of my friends dad saying this to us. That we should suffer so dat wen we grow up we will be sensible. That they track 10 miles 2 school during their days (since their was no cars or public transport was vry expensive), that they use slate (chalkboard) 2 write instead of books as we av 2day. That they eat once in a day and so on n so forth.

Am wondering how many people wud let their children go tru hardship because u suffered same. Such parents i bliv ar insensitive to the current state of tins.

For me, my kids will get d best of evrytin as long as i can afford it.

I think you misunderstood your folks, they meant that you probably have it good now and if you think there are some areas that you are suffering,you should try and endure

No right thinking parent wants their kids to suffer more, but in a child's mind,he(she) thinks he is suffering the most, when my dad refused to buy Super Nintendo for a whole year after it came out on the premise that I had to improve my grades. I think i hated him with a passion but then it helped (IMHO,jor o)

The path of the just is as a shining light that shines brighter and brighter , a father is expected to use all the resources at his disposal to make life better for is children.

So my children are expected to do better than me in all ways .

Myself!!! I am suffering so my son can have a better education than i did but thats my job as a parent. There is no question, thats the way it should be. I dont give him everything cos i dont want to teach him that 'things' make you happy cos they dont. I teach him to be grateful for the small blessing. He does chores to earn money to save for what he wants. There is no question i want him to have a better life than me and not struggle as much but at the same time dont want to raise a spoilt man.

that is a very ignorant way of looking at it, of course as a loving parent you should want the best for your kids. Most parents (including my own) wouldnt want their kids to go tru the things (the bad things) they went tru when they were younger, they want a better life for their children. I find it amazing and shocking that any parent can think like that.

I like to raise my children better, because we moved up on the economic ladder. Why suffer? No need to. Just prepare the children to become independent.

I will rather suffer and go through hardship than for any of my children should go through such.
