Be an asset not a liability to your parents (be inspired today 305 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Are you an asset or a liability to your parents? Are you making life easy or hard for your parents?

It is believed that girl- children are more responsible than boy- children; and give support to their parents in old age than boy children. Is it true? Some people even say girls are more disciplined than boys. They cite boys who leave home and live in cities away from their parents for years without returning home; and what is worse, communicate very little with their parents, let alone support their parents in their old age.

If you cannot support your parents in their old age, how do you think people will look at you?

My people say a child is the walking stick of their parents. It means when your parents are old and unable to fend for themselves, it is your place to help them. Do not abandon them. They need you. Remember the sacrifices they made for you to bring you up. Had they not sacrificed as they did, you would not have been what you are. And now that you are grown, and have a good stand, help them to enjoy their last years in this world.

If you support your parents, you are an asset to them. If you make life hard for them, you are a liability.

Be an asset and not a liability to your parents.
