thought for the day: children need love especially those who do not deserve it

Children are said to be gifts to parents who are tasked to nurture and take care of them until they are old enough to stand on their own two feet.

However, not all parents are capable of providing for the needs of their children that is why there are children who are in orphanage homes. But no matter what the reasons are, it is the sole duty of the parents to love and care for their children.

Children need love. As parents we have to love our kids even if they are the most unlovable on this planet. For if parents could not even love their own brood, how do they expect others to do the same? Whether a child is handicapped, deformed, sick, dumb, silly---he is still your child. I have read in the newspaper recently about the story of a polio victim who, at the age of 5, suddenly fell ill and was diagnosed with polio. The parents of this boy denied the fact that they had a child who had this disease. In their house they had a small space or cubicle between the sala and the dining room, to which he retreated when there were visitors. He grew up hiding and ashamed to be seen by others. When visitors would go to their house he would slither to his cubicle to hide.

However, this little boy had developed the habit of reading. He read, read, read until his eyes burned. He became well-informed until one day he decided to leave the house and live in a place among others with physical disabilities. His life changed since he stopped hiding.
