Things I Wish For Dad

I wish Dad…

could be more patient with the kids.

would always remember that the kids are still just toddlers, and well, they would act like toddlers.

would know that the kids look for him everyday when he’s at work.

would realize that the kids will not be toddlers forever and soon will not need us as much.

would know that (having said the 4th statement) he would lots of time for himself as soon as the kids hit grade school age, and more so when they enter highschool.

would listen to me more.

would think before he speaks.

would have more initiative.

would be more considerate.

would be more of a team player.

would read this, reflect and understand…

 

why video games are different from your kids

  1. the amount of time you invest in video games will not influence the kind of individuals they would grow up to be.
  2. video games would not feel bad if you don’t spend your weekends with them.
  3. no matter how much effort you put in on mastering your gaming skills, video games would not kiss, hug and whisper “i love you” when you go to bed.
  4. video games cannot give butterfly kisses.
  5. even after not seeing you the whole day, video games’ eyes will not light up into a smile upon seeing you again.
  6. even if you get really good at playing with video games, they’d never think you’re just the coolest and try to imitate you.
  7. if you need to stay late at work and miss dinner, video games won’t care.
  8. video games will never defend you from “mom, the unreasonable.” in fact, they will even fuel up her fire.
  9. video games do not have memories of all the times you spend together to treasure and hold dear.
  10. if you miss a year of your video games’ life, they will still be the same. meanwhile you have missed an entire year of your kids’ lives and no amount of rebooting or re-installing could ever bring that back.

Note: this post has definitely nothing to do with this man whatsoever.
