Good day. Have you ever tried to be waken up by your father 2 o'clock in the morning, at that too early just to ask that "are you going to go farm to clean the messes just like, trim the grasses and sweep the fecal materials of the animals?" And I immediately answer no, I have a lot of things to do in our house. He get mad at me but I still go on to my decision. Who will be the one to cook the food, clean the house and wash all these dirty clothes If I go with him? I cannot entrust everything into my younger siblings. And maybe If I go with him upon coming back here in our house, I would expect to start all over again those things being done by my siblings. I am great in household chores not into outdoor activity like doing some farm activities in that early morning. I would reconsider working into farm if I had enough sleep and I already finished on my household works and for sure I will be great in it. Good day

I did not know that your father would wake you up at two in the morning to tell you about the work on the farm. If I were you, I would say the same thing because without enough sleep, you can not be energetic to do work well, not only physical work but mental work as well. Besides, it is considerate of you to think about taking good care of your younger siblings. I wish you to enjoy yourself with a wonderful day, koneho.

I was also shock to what he has done but its over, I should understand his side and respect him. But, I told him that he should said it in advance, the night before for me to prepare some stuffs. Thank you so much for the concern. yes I will enjoy.

Ohh,pity you. I never experience this before and i guess is torturing. I guess this is not the first time your father did this to you right. And the most important is, i don't think this is the last time. I guess he will do the same thing to you in future. Anyway, good luck, happy mylotter.

Two hours of sleep is really too little! Since you are great in the household chores, maybe you can just tell your father about it, and you guys can sort out the schedules among your family members. Then, you won't be waken up by your father again in the middle of the night. Perhaps he really needs someone to help him in the farm at that time, and he asks all the sons / daughters one by one? Good day to you too!

Thank you for the concern, I was not able to go back to sleep after that event. I started to do my household chores to finish early. and I have pet to take care of which serves as a friend and listener.

Awwwww,waking up at two just to go to farm,that's too early , good thing my parents aren't in to farming..But you know what?Even if we are in to farming,i don't think it's right to go to farm that early,that's scary..Have you tried asking your father to just let you do the household chores instead of farming??maybe if you'll explain to him that you are not fond of farming maybe he'll consider...

Even if I enjoy outdoor chores I don't think I could ever perform well when I lack sleep. Two hours of sleep is too short. For a person to be productive, I think he must have at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep otherwise if he still would go to work he will only sleep or feel sleepy on the job. I understand you if you prefer household chores that outdoor chores. Each of us has each own preference and I think you father should understand that. For as long as you are doing your part well then you should not be forced to do jobs you don't really like to do.
