Even during my 'almost brain-dead' weekend, a tiny weeny thought passed through my grey matters - i wonder how his son will grow up having him as the father? Would it be difficult as people have that kind of negative stigma on your daddy?
*Ta! Daaa!* On Monday, surfing through the online MCA's paper yesterday, i came across a picture of someone, who in the last couple of months has emerged as the winner of a certain political wing. I smiled - thank goodness for a son, he seems more matured and focused. See here for that particular article on him. At least, he showed some efforts towards achieving 1Malaysia, unlike that fella walking next to him. Way to go, Encik KJ!
*p.s. Masin otak saya!
So, you may wonder why i thought so. Well, you see, i am a firm believer of instincts and i judge people from their outlook (so you better watch out ;). Thus, i think parenthood has made him a sensible human being, like any father should be. And i was told by someone that people trust married people more than others. Ok la, i will try...because that's so prejudice!
So, marriage should make you a good person and upon bestow of that special title - as a mother or a father, you should all become better. I hope we should look at children as gift of life, not a clone of you, that you will ensure that every single action of yours will be translated to what your child will become in the future that they better be great.
That's scary isn't it? For me, it is so daunting a responsibility - I pass - till further notice...
May all the married men and women lead this world to betterment. The stake is too high for them to fail these innocent children - theirs and the rest of the children of this world.
I like this quote from Mr. Fred G. Gosman on (good) parenting: -
"We must return optimism to our parenting. To focus on the joys, not the hassles; the love, not the disappointments; the common sense, not the complexities"
