Despite of the new iPhone 7 on their hand, and Jordan’s on their feet, there is an undeniably missing part of a child’s life whose parents are both working as overseas Filipino workers. No matter how easy life may seem for them, being able to study in prestigious schools, getting everything that they want and need, being able to go out with friends on full pockets, nothing beats the fact that they still aren’t living with a complete family. That hard pill to swallow is one of the worst realities that an OFW can face. Their children growing up without their supervision, without their presence.
Numerous OFW guardians think material things can make up for their non-appearance in any case, when asked, the youngsters would most likely say, “Sana hindi na lang ninyo kami iniwan, sana hindi na lang kayo annoy abroad. (We wish you never left us to work abroad).”
Working in a remote nation is doubly harder for individuals who have a child or girl to abandon in the Philippines. The choice to acknowledge an occupation offer abroad may imply that you will miss a portion of the growing up years of your kid.
There are moments when kids won’t understand why their parents need to leave but as they grow older, they definitely will.
Offspring of OFWs trust their folks are working abroad to give them better nourishment, better instruction and better home. The eldest youngster then accept the part of a parent.
Since there have been incalculable stories of OFW youngsters that have wandered off-track, an OFW parent may likewise have this dread his or her kid will grow up misinformed and with little respect for them.Though some abroad Filipino specialists (OFWs) are more fortunate on the grounds that their host nation and visa may enable them to bring wards along, greater part of the OFWs need to confront the truth of being far from their kids.
Our kids will encounter adolescence just once. This is the time when they truly require the direction of guardians. We ought not squander the open door.
When you get back home, the youngsters you deserted have likely grown up and are excessively caught up with so many other things in life, making it impossible to have room, schedule-wise, to be with you.
