Raising Children Not Easy.

The parent' job do not come with a manual
Parents do their best what they can, the deeds cannot be reversal
Later the child blames them for any foolish doing,
Possibly the parents are attracting from not sure knowing.

That is why the world is full of parents who do not approve the kid,
And the kids blame, look down on parents calling them stupid.
Mankind had this problem from the beginning of time in this manner,
No wonder even the Bible tells to honor your mother and father.

Hope someday parents & children will honor the other,
All will leave in peace and harmony forever.

    My li'l review for this poem goes like this for you La Soaphia:

    The poem is another substantial addition to your instruction-based, inspirational poetry. Here you have selected an area of life that relates to the rights & duties of parents and children that they have on each other for each other. A sensitive job of life, and tender too...The first line: The parents' job does not come with a manual, is true in depth, as we all go for experience in all the spheres of life, but the greatest job of the world is parenthood which starts its own experience anew, as there's no manual already given, and no road-maps to tread on the paths of the alien journey.
    The next point is delicate and realistic again, as it happens around us, as you said: Parents do their best what they can, the deeds cannot be reversal
    Later the child blames them for any foolish doing...true but a cruel reality.You have proceeded in your work very logically by the attitudes of the parties concerned towards each other, and then comes the nice conclusion: Hope someday parents & children will honor the other,
    All will leave in peace and harmony forever. Here I would like to share with you Francis Bacon's thoughts about Parents & children:
    1: THE JOYS of parents are secret; and so are their griefs and fears. They cannot utter the one; nor they will not utter the other. Children sweeten labors; but they make misfortunes more bitter. They increase the cares of life; but they mitigate the remembrance of death.
    2: The difference in affection of parents towards their several children is many times unequal; and sometimes unworthy; especially in the mother; as Solomon saith, A wise son rejoiceth the father, but an ungracious son shames the mother. A man shall see, where there is a house full of children, one or two of the eldest respected, and the youngest made wantons; 1 but in the midst some that are as it were forgotten, who many times nevertheless prove the best.
    3: The illiberality of parents in allowance towards their children is an harmful error; makes them base; acquaints them with shifts; makes them sort 2 with mean company; and makes them surfeit more when they come to plenty.
    4: Let parents choose betimes the vocations and courses they mean their children should take; for then they are most flexible; and let them not too much apply themselves to the disposition of their children, as thinking they will take best to that which they have most mind to.
    5: It is true, that if the affection or aptness of the children be extraordinary, then it is good not to cross it; but generally the precept is good, optimum elige, suave et facile illud faciet consuetudo [choose the best—custom will make it pleasant and easy].

To a holy, calm delight;
