disinterested parents
« on: January 14, 2017, 09:43:32 pm »
as mentioned in my earlier post, i'm now single. [ after a long conversation, the relationship is still existing :D but the fact about my parents is still the same]
i'm in germany 450 Kilometer from my family, it is almost 6AM
i just sent my family in the groupchat a message to see if someone is awake so i can tell what happened and to arrange transporrtation for my stuff and the first to answer is my dad with the message "WHY AREN'T YOU SLEEPING???"

I'm honestly scared to go home, my parents will be sad for an hour and then treat me disrespectful and they'll be rude like i never left the house. :(

I regret not moving out to attend university when the chance presented itself. Instead, I attended a local college to see how things would work out. Having five siblings, plus a part time job, made study quite a challenge. My parents actually interrupted my studying to invite me to come and watch television with the family.

Though my parents treated me well, and gave me their love. They
didn't seem to be all that interested in what I was doing in school
or elsewhere as long as I didn't cause trouble. Even then they did
little to ask why or how.

Seems like as I grew older, and started school they felt. "He will
say something if he has problems or needs help." This didn't work
well for me. As a kid I tried to fix my own problems. I suppose it
started when I once or twice asked and they were too busy to
listen. They would say. "Why didn't you come to us?" I think many
parents say this then when the problem is past they forget.

Kids need more than just the necessities of life like food, water, clothes
and a warm dry place to live. They need parents who care enough
to ask how they are doing, show interest in their hobbies, and
friends. Not sitting on their shoulder, but to be there for them.

Most kids turn out pretty well, and parenting is a tough job that
usually is learned on the fly, but as society puts more demands on
us all parents really need to sit aside a little time for the family.

Being a kid can be and often is a tough job too. They need all
the help parents can give them.

I think most parents do well, and love their kids dearly,  but
sometimes even the best need a  litte reminding now and then.
