i am away from my family.working abroad.as i was videocalling with my daughter, she asked me to go back home.she started to cry.the situation broke my heart that i also cried.i asked her to stay strong.not to give up.this will be the last time i'll be away from her.but she seems troubled with something more.from time to time, she looks at her back.she would rather type her answers than speak.as if she wouldn't want anyone to hear her answers to me.i want to go home straight away.i want to comfort her.to give her the attention that my wife cannot give.my wife is always outside to places i don't know.she wouldn't tell me though.i feel pity for my daughter.

Oh no, it's makes my heart breaks, I can't imagine being away from my cute little boy. Your daughter miss you so much or maybe she want to tell you what's going on but she can't afraid that her mom will scold her as what you mentioned on the other topic. You may let your daughter to use the internet cafe so she can talk to you in private. With that, you can have a clearer view on what's really happening in your home. It's so sad to think that you work abroad to have a better life but for 3 years you are not stable yet. If I were in your shoes maybe I already have a nice house and invested some money on business. Keep on praying and ask for guidance from the Almighty.

Hello chiumee, This happens when our kids cry we also become upset. In you case you should ask your wife to comfort your daughter may she gets improved and becomes more caring. I have never been away from my kids but i can feel the pain of staying away from my family by your discussion.Hope every thing becomes fine soon.
