Parents are very important for children. But not everyone knows this. Many children choose not to take care of their parents after they pass a certain age. This is the case of a young son who took his mother to a nursing home.
This event leaves everyone speechless. This is not the first time that children decide to leave their parents in the care home. This usually happens for economic and family reasons. When parents get old, they have a lot of needs for their children. This is the moment when they feel weak and need love and care. Some children who don’t have their parents, feel their absence and want to take care of them even if they can’t. While some others don’t want to get too tired.
This is the moment we have to show how much we love and respect our parents. A boy decided to share his story with the public. That’s how he shared it on social media, thus giving a strong message and making everyone understand the importance and impact of the actions they do. He sent his mother to a nursing home even though she was sick. “After my father died, my mother took care of me. She was the backbone of our family.”
“My decision was selfish and I regret this action.” He asks his mother if she needs anything or if she needs something she is missing. One day he received a call because his mother was not well. The frightened boy immediately asked his mother what was happening.
Not everyone understands the need that the elderly have for their children. The elderly want to be close to their family and children at a certain age. After her husband died, the only person who remained alive for the old woman was her son. But he sent his mother to a nursing home, which affected her health. She felt lonely as her child rarely visited her. This made him feel very bad.
Her son’s hasty decision affected her life.
After receiving the call about his mother’s condition, the boy started to cry and rushed to his mother. It seemed she was living her last days. He arrived quickly and started asking about the condition of his mother. His mother had called him to fulfill her last wish. She complained to her son about the food and asked him to change the refrigerator. The mother tells him that there were days when he did not eat because the food was expired.
Then the boy approached his mother and she said, “One day it will be your turn when you get old and your children bring you here. Maybe you will find better conditions. Don’t forget that you get what you give.” He was very hurt and realized that his action had been very wrong. Just as our parents take care of us when we are small, we should take care of them at their most delicate age.
“When I heard these words, I was very hurt and regretted it endlessly. A man sometimes cannot correct his own mistake, and in this case, it was my mistake.” This is how the guy ends his post.
