What are children to parents?
When i say this, i speak about this generation and my limited experience with them. What are children to parents? Are they the next generation whose sole purpose is to fulfll a dream the parent did not achieve and is using his offspring to do it instead? If so, can the child work, study and live on a dream that is solely not of his own? And if he can, is it right to make him/her to do it? Are they the source of income so that the family can be taken care of in the future? If so, then is it right to force the child through a path laid with money but not of interest? I ask these questions because the ideal answer, that the child is the parent's gift with the help of God to the world, that a child is the parent's own flesh and blood and a continuation of life in this world and that the child, is first and foremost, a human being with its own rights. These answers either do not exist or are heavily covered up in all the wrong in life that they just do NOT appear possible in our world.
