Children are very important in our life. They’re the motivation to our life. They give joy and happiness requisite with our Karma. There’s no greater satisfaction from a father or mother than upbringing virtuous and educated children. We coach them in the life ahead.
When the children return, the affection and old age, you feel your life worth lived and can happily look forward to the future. However, no one should become a parent unless they are 100% sure that’s what they want to do. Nothing can ruin a childhood more than the realization that you’re unwanted, that you’re interfering with what your parent would rather do. Oliver was a cute child who was exposed to a great deal of harshness by his cruel father. Noah.
On the other hand, Helen, Oliver’s mother, treated her son so compassionately. Helen was loving and caring. She’d sacrifice anything for Oliver’s sake. Well, Noah was a strict man who did not like his son as he had not any desire of having a child from the very beginning. In fact, Noah was also mistreated by his father.
That was why he hated the idea of having any kid as he thought that this boy must be a cause for his misery forever. Before Noah married Helen, he told her that they would ignore anyway which might cause them to have a baby. Noah made the worst use of Helen’s big love for him. Noah was a man of a hard heart. Although Helen left her rich family to live with poor Noah out of true love, Noah treated her as a servant, not as a real woman.
Noah told Helen, the only condition to accept to marry you is not to intend to have any child. I am not ready to spend all I have on a naughty kid. For me, children are the main cause of disturbance and annoyance. They make their parents extremely worried about their coming future. They exhaust their power and spoil their lifestyle.
Responsibility has increased more and more. They represent a heavy burden for their parents. Freedom has vanished with no return. Restrictions seem everywhere. Children ruin the peaceful atmosphere between any husband and his wife.
Parenting is a bad investment and misadventure. Economically speaking. It’s like putting your money into some business, which would definitely fail. Parenting is all about sacrificing and living for others. Your own life is no longer priority.
Less economic freedom, more expenses, and the list is endless. Having kids increases the expense multiple times. You can no longer stay in a small apartment and the wailing of the kids at night is enough to drive anyone insane. I’m pretty sure parents love it when kids wake them up in the middle of the night after a hard day work by crying at the top of their voice and then goes the medical bills, schooling, clothing, shoes and etc.
For the person who’s saying children would look after them in their old age, I would say saving your money without having kids could buy you much better health care and I’ve seen countless old parents whose adult children do not care about them anymore.
Helen, I’m sorry to break it, but that’s the reality. Society makes us see parenting from its own angle of view as we are brainwashed to believe what society sees fit. Society glorifies parenting because it needs to get a sustainable population or else there would be a huge catastrophe. Parenting is glorified by some photos of the sweet kid and a selected collection of moments, but one fails to notice the countless hours of labor went to maintain and feed them. Therefore, I do not lead such a tiring life which would be full of worries and uncomfortable happenings.
I just want to live in complete tranquility with you. What do you think, Helen? Helen tried to change Noah’s point of view about being a parent when she said, Children are a precious gift from God. They’re the connection to what is most vital, most magical about being a human. They connect us to all that we have forgotten about, what was silly, stupid, funny and goofy about life and help us to see things in a different light.
They give us hope to see them find themselves in this world of possibilities and teach us to appreciate what we have. I value having my mind stretched each time to meet a different need, a new value and a new possibility. Children keep you young. You learn how to place someone else’s needs before your own. You learn.
You manage without little or no sleep for months. You learn more about patients than any life experience can ever teach you. You also learn how to stretch yourself both physically and mentally. You learn to love unconditionally. You feel the warm satisfaction of making a helpless boy transform into an independent individual.
It could lead to discover that there’s such a thing as love at first sight. Take part in the miracle of life and know the value of suffering unconditional and selfless love for the sake of someone else being a teacher, a doctor, a handyman, a mentor, a warden, a chef, a counselor, a promoter, a coach, a shoulder, a rock, a friend, and a parent. There is no greater challenge and no greater reward than being a parent. You’ll be amazed how they become your first priority. You’ll get the sense of responsibility to take care of them.
You’ll do anything to keep them safe and happy. Nothing else makes your heart ache like seeing them hurt, if at all. You are wondering what you are doing with your life after having a child, you’ll understand the meaning of your existence. Noah’s views were not changed by Helen’s words. Thus, Helen had no solution left.
Helen chose to live with Noah and not to have children because she dearly loved him. She saw that living with him would bring her the ultimate happiness she was looking for. Noah and Helen got married. Helen used to take birth control pills. One night, Helen forgot to take the pills.
After a short period, Helen started to feel some evident feelings of being pregnant. She became worried. Without telling Noah anything about her current suspicions, Helen visited the doctor. Helen was shocked when he told her that she was pregnant. Helen had to tell Noah about the truth.
Noah went completely nervous and upset. He said, you’re such an irresponsible woman. I feel like you did this intentionally to destroy my whole plans. This child will prevent us from enjoying our lives. I never expect you to behave ignorantly like this.
Helen kept telling him that she became pregnant by accident, but Noah didn’t believe her words. Noah began mistreating Helen. Remarkably, he never helped her nor asked her about her health conditions, although Helen’s pregnancy was difficult and exhausting. Besides, he never went with her to the doctor to see the baby in her womb on the small screen as any new father was looking forward to seeing his new baby’s face. Helen hated Noah because of his deliberate ignorance for her.
When Helen gave birth to her baby boy, Noah did not attend with her. To give her proper support and necessary care, Helen named her boy Oliver on the name of her father. Helen blamed herself very much to leave her family to live with this heartless Noah. Noah did not provide Oliver with love or compassion. He hated him the same as he hated his wife.
He kept beating Oliver and scribbling him strongly. Helen thought to take her son and escape away from Noah, but she had no one to receive her nor did she have money to spend on her child. Hence, she was forced to complete her life with Noah. Oliver Grows Up Oliver did not love his father because he didn’t care about him. Instead, he insulted him and offended him every now and then without any reason.
On the other hand, he loved his mother more than anybody else as she was such a caring, loving, friendly, and compassionate mother. Noah was a bad father. He always neglected Oliver’s existence. He never spent money on him. He wanted Oliver to be uneducated, but Helen refused and she worked as a cleaner to earn the money needed for Oliver to develop his education.
Oliver became an adult. His parents died in an accident. Oliver felt sorry because of the departure of his mother only. However, Oliver decided to achieve his mother’s wish. Oliver became an engineer as Pell and desired.
Oliver married his work colleague Nancy. Oliver and Nancy were a very happy, respected and rational couple. Unlike his father, Oliver wished to be a father. Enthusiastically, Nancy got pregnant. Oliver was so joyful and pleased.
Nancy gave birth to twins. Oliver paid his kids necessary care and protection. He let them enter the most expensive schools and universities. His children grew up in a healthy environment. Thanks to their kind and sacrificing father.
The adults established their own families independently like the father. They married and they had children. Oliver and Nancy became grandparents. Unfortunately, Helen died. Oliver was affected negatively by her death.
Oliver started suffering from amnesia. His child John took him to live with him. After he realized that his father’s health was deteriorated. Oliver forgot everything and everyone. The only happening that he could remember was his father’s constant beating for him in his early childhood.
Thus, Oliver’s case was worsened very much. When he started waking up at night and making different scratches on his face. His son and his grandchildren noticed these strange marks. They put a camera to watch him during his sleep. They discovered Oliver’s unjustified behaviors.
They took him to the doctor. The doctor advised him to put him in a psychiatric hospital. This story has a moral lesson that any parent should allow his or her child to have a happy childhood not a cruel one as this would result in whether good or bad consequences on him or her their future afterwards.
