have you ever hear someone saying this? me, i do...i remember my neighbor then saying this...well actually her parents are acting like a child, i think, they do not really acts as parents, they are doing things that a good parents should not do...i remember her father is an alcoholic and a gambler and the mother is sometimes a gossiper! hehehe...when she told them not to do those things they just said yes...but the next day they will still do it again... and then i hear her saying to my mom..."huh..its hard to have parents like them, they did not listen to me...its really difficult to raise parents!" how about you? do you hear something like this? or do you ever feel something like this about your parents? what can you say and your opinion? isn't it bad to say things like this towards our parents? thanks and have a nice day!

I think i somehow agree with your neighbour to a certain extend.. lol =D PArents are parents, and because of their age and life experience, they always tend to think that whatever they are doing is right, and thus they wont listen.. For us, will always be a kid to them forever.. ANd that, they dun think they should listen to a kid at all.. haha =D However, no matter how frustrated we feel about our parents, but we should not talk bad or complain anything about them.. BEcause they are the ones whom gave us our life and presence in this world ^_^ AS their children, we can only protect them in the best possible way but definitely not giving up on them ^_^

yes i agree with you... sometimes some children just use this term as a joke...maybe during times that they really get annoyed and can't think of anything to say..just say it to release some feelings! hehehe

haha =D Actions speak louder than words.. IF they are just saying for the sake of saying, but their actions showed that they really loved their parents, it will be fine ^_^

yes i think...most of the time they just say it but after saying that what they think is again about what they can do for their parents and what they want...well actually this happens when parents are a little old...

Yeah it so hard to choose a parents. It is already there and we cannot make a choice ouit from it. We cannot grow on earth without them . Instead we will try our best to show and tell whats in our minds for the betterment of themselves. We will pray and do our best as a siblings from them and dont follow their footsteps.

Well, I am glad that it is not this way with my parents. They have always been a great parent to me and my sister. But I have seen parent like this. In fact a friend of mine has this kind of parents. It is really a problem. Most of the time, it is my friend who acts as a parent considering that her parents are acting like they are children. Often times, she cries because of this. Gladly she is strong and she continues to lead her younger brother and sister as life goes on.

hi jpso! i think such situation like your friend's is really difficult and its good that she has a strong heart and responsible enough to guide her younger sister and brother. she just need to be strong and have faith with God and so her parents will realize that what they are doing is not good for their children! thanks for sharing...you re lucky to have nice parents!

How about you then will you dare to tell anyone to your close friends? As for me, maybe to my really trusted friend. I guess I could not stand holding, keeping with me all of my parents problem. That's why we have trusted friend so can have a shoulder to cry on, someone we can express ourselves as far as problems are concern...

I heard it also in the soap operas and to our neighbor that it is hard to raise a parents. When your parents is like that and they never listen to you I think you need to have a very long patience. Sometimes when I gets angry to my father's attitude I realize that it is very hard to raise parents. He makes me mad everyday, everytime I tell him to clean his mess in the kitchen or put the things properly in their shelves he takes it for granted. It's hard to reprimanded and he did it again and again. Sometimes I want to give up on telling him what he should do.

hello agv! sometimes its really hard to be a child and take care of our parents especially if they are acting as a child, but there are things that we cannot really avoid and i think as good son or daughter, we must really be patient with them and understands them as long as we can...and of course we also needs to talk to them so that they will know that what they are doing is already annoying...hehehe i am close to my parents and love them so much but i will be honest to tell that there's certain point in my life that i also have this thought on my mind, that its really hard to raise them! hehehe...but now everything is ok with us... just don't give up with your father...just pray for him...hehehe thanks for sharing! have a good day!
