screw the selfish parents.
For all the young adults who have similar type of parents that demand for money.
Your parents are adults too and have been adults far longer than us, if they don’t contribute their fair share in the relationship emotionally, physically then it’s time to cut them out.
It’s not our responsibility to make sure they can retire
It doesn’t makes any sense that I work my ass off 9-5 + OT, contribute the fillial money($1.2k out of $4k), just to go home where my only interaction with my parents is being scolded for not doing enough chores when I have always done my fair share. Even worse is scolded by a fulltime housewife… who do a max 3hours of chores a day then slack off for the rest of the day finishing a TV series every two to three days. I even confronted them about their behavior but they wouldn’t listen with the entitled snobbish attitudes. It was too ridiculous for me..so I left immediately when I got married and got my HDB and never paid or contacted them ever again.
So much happier now.
Here are what netizens think:
- Wow! Did the full time housewife raise you when you were needy? Without your so-called selfish parents’ CONTRIBUTION to YOUR life in the earlier years, where would you be? You probably thought since they gave birth to you, it is THEIR responsibility and your ENTITLEMENT to be raised without a need to repay in kindness and gratitude. Thankfully, there are more grateful children out there with a conscience. Young people like you better not have children.
- I understand OP. Imagine already contributing filial money and still be scolded for not being enough. Ya’ll can say everything about being ungrateful and such but that’s because your parents treat you differently than how they treat her. It’s tiring when you come home and all you hear is yelling. Children don’t choose to be born in this world. Parents shouldn’t make their kids be their retirement plan. Here, I still see other people working their ass off til 70. Both parties should just be grateful for what they can put on the table. Yes, it’s a shame how the relationship turned out to be. But if OP is happier, we can’t really blame her for it. When doing otherwise, comes with more problems, yelling, affecting her own family and not being peaceful.
- Fulltime housewife is no joke lei. Full time housewife and taitai got differences. Full time mother is like maid to everyone in the family. I don’t even have to be a full time housewife to know such simple common sense things.
