One day, mom and dad argued. Grandma came over to stop the argument. I saw mom came downstairs, walking fast towards the door, and left with grandma and my uncle. That was the last time I saw her. She never came back since then.
Mom did not come back to celebrate Chinese New Year with me. Neither did she come back to celebrate Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and my birthday. Has she forgotten me? Does she love me no more? I miss her but I am too young to find her. I don’t know where is she?
Dad is not doing anything to find mom. Does she not love her anymore? He is just too busy with his girls. I have seen dad bringing girls home. I am sad. He does not talk to me. He does not play with me. He is spending on girls and I don’t like it. How can I tell him my feelings?
Why did they bring me here and not take care nor love me? I am young but don’t think me stupid. I can see. I just don’t know how to say out. Where are you mom? I miss you! Please come back. I only have 1 mom.
Voice of a boy whose mom left her children, left her husband, left her family, left her home. Who knows where is she? Maybe her own family knew, they just don’t want to tell. Maybe the husband knew but don’t bother to find her. There are just too many “maybe”. Whatever happen to both parents, will affect the children. So before one decide, one should think first. Don’t act without thinking, don’t act stupidly. Children are fast learners. They see, they learn, they follow your footsteps. Your decision will affect their wellbeing and their future.
Mom and dad never really care about me. It is like I’m not wanted. I only got love from grandparents, uncles and aunties. I know I am not a good boy because I always do things to make them angry. All I want is their attention. They are working hard to find money for themselves and to pay my school fees. What did dad do? Did he pay my school fees? Did he buy me school books? Did he pay my tuition fees? Did he teach me do homework? NO!
I don’t want to hurt or make anybody unhappy. I love them all. I see my friends’ parents, all love their children so much, but me? What mom is she? Why is she not back? Did she never love dad? Did dad never love mom? Why did they always argue or fight? Every time they fight, I become very scared.
Frequent fighting or arguing in front of your children is something very bad because your children will learn whatever language that you use to scold each other. They will also learn whatever facial emotion, behavior and action used. If you never wanted children, don’t have children. If you never wanted to get married, why have children? Don’t say that you want your wife but you never go find her BUT bringing new girls home and let your children see. Is this the way to save your so-called marriage?
Dad, those girls that you bring home can never replace mom. I don’t know how long will I remember mom. One day, I might forget her. I don’t know when, just one day. Dad, you really disappoint me. Is this how dads are?
Voice of a boy is true voice, true thoughts. It is not a lie. Children don’t lie. Adults lie.
