Five years later...

How do you see yourself five or ten years from now? And if your son or daughter asked you for advice regarding their first encounter with love, what would be your advice to them? And if they get their heart broken the first time, how would you handle it? How would you support them? Share 'em here! :)

oh my... i dont need to wait for five more years for my first born is 16 already. i just tell them that in a relationship or entering a relationship has responsibilities too if they cant do it then dont get in to it. my son had a problem about a girl she like and the girl likes her also but he thinks it is not the right time yet because he will be graduating in high school and feels he has more responsibilities on his studies. i told him to talk to the girl, communication should be always open. i know she will understand. i think we parents should be supportive, but not to protective. they have to be responsible in their own way as well. if they ask question then we should have the time to answer. we alwasy have to open our observing eye.

Hopefully, I will have my degree then and I would be using my degree to help people. I would tell my daughter to never give too much of herself for love because that is how you get your heart broken. I would talk with her and tell her it is part of life. Sometimes, people wouldn't love you back or do things to hurt you even though, they would say they love you. I will offer a shoulder for her to cry on.
