What if your kids grow up to be a bum? Who do you blame to? Your in laws or the family of your in laws? This hurt me so much because my family was being blamed for the failures of my brothers kids. I would say that on our part we have done our share by giving advices, support and examples. But it is hard to bring out the best in this children when the mother themselves lacks all the moral values she should be as well as the compassion and support that children needs. I am not being bias but my brother is always out of the country and the mother is left alone to take care of the children. And why us? We are miles away from their home, about 3 hours.

Hi fairlady 56, there is no such thing as bum in a person. Many who felt hopeless for lack of education, poor, not good looking, or due to obstacles in life did not give up and achieved success. Thomas Alva Edison who was acclaimed as the greatest inventor but his teacher thought he was stupid; George Westinghouse, his teacher thought he was dumb but he had almost 400 patents and disproved everyone; Emilie Zola, who got zero in literature but became a famous novelist; Harry Doehla a paralytic but became a millionaire by painting Christmas cards; James Barries, suffering from malaria but wrote a famous play "Twelve Pound Look"; Agatha Christie and Albert Einstein were dyslexics, a mental disorder, but they became writer and scientist, respectively; and many others.

Well, if they are but it is really a different case. The kid is already 26 years old and had 2 kids, same with his sister. These children is always in the company of their friends. They are irresponsible, no family values. My brother is really frustrated, his wife spends a lot and without any savings for their future. This is the usual family of overseas filipino workers (OFWs). They don't care about their future. I just want to share this to everyone who has relatives with the same case as my brother. Thank you...
