Our family is closely tied. We take good care of our oldies. Even they are sick. We don't bring them in the home for the aged or nursing home. As the young ones, we make sure we attend to their needs. Because we wanted, too that we will be taken cared of by the next generation in our clan if we get old. Will you take the pain of taking care of your old and sick parent?

Yes, of course! If my parents get old I won't refused to take care of them since they were my parents and I love them.. No matter how difficult to take care of them I still want to be with them.. I know my other siblings will do the same thing as i will do.. We love our parents so much.. As of now, my parents were not yet that old and we were living apart from them since me and my older sister have a work in our city.. But my older brother and my younger sister were with my parents right now.. My younger sister is still studying and my older brother had a small business together with my parents.. We were living in an extended family since the sisters of my father and his mother were living together with us.. All of his sisters have a job so financially, we don't have so much problem for the expenses at home since all of them were contributing.. My grandmother is on her 70's already but she's not that weak.. Of course, she's not working anymore.. She just stayed at home and do what ever she wants to do.. Well, its not hard to take good care with our grandmother since she don't need to much help since she's strong enough to do the things that she want to do.. Maybe, if she will get more older that's the time we might find some difficulty in taking or assisting her.. But its ok she is part of the family and she is important to us..

Yes,I think as young ones,we definitely should take care of our parents who have done so much for us.If we cannot even deal with this,his/her life is a total failure.
