"I am waiting a day when my father dies"

No-one can deny that parents are the dearest person in the world for any child. People may be stunned when someone hear that 2 child are praying for the death of their father. This is story of 2 bold child who struggle every day for their rights, for the food to eat and to live without knowing there exist human right and child rights in the world.

She is about 18 studies in class 9 and the eldest daughter of their parents and her sister is about 13 years and studies in standard 6. When we talked about father they have one wish that is to see the death of their father. I am not shocked neither awkward listening those words because i have been watched them bitten by their father many times without any reason.I have seen them sleeping empty stomach, sometimes with just drinking water.

When second daughter born in that family the father become upset. When he hears that his wife cant give birth anymore he started becoming mad and stated blaming the daughters without reason. He left every responsibilities towards his family and only alcohol becomes his life. He don't think before hitting in the thin and skinny body of his child. Most of the time he scolds to both of his daughter for ever single work they do.Elder daughter says " When Mother goes for work we are scared to death and we always try not to be in home but we have no where to go also". When her father bits his mother they cant do anything except staring and crying for help.Everyone pray for the healthy and long life of their father in the world but they have no choice either to pray for the death of their father or their own death.

Every one talks about human rights and child rights but society just hear and dam care for the family. I can hear people taking around the both daughter are too wild and manner less but where and when they will learn manners and discipline growing in such family environment????

Comments

The testimony of these two kids frightens me. They are in deep stress, from what I understand. And they need love. I am pleased to you that you are there to inspire them with encouraging words. Just by sharing their stories with us here on Pulsewire is encouraging and I am definitely sure you won’t regret you representing their concern with their aunts, sisters, uncle, brothers, fathers, and mothers.

Please keep up the good work and keep speaking to them not to think that the best way to repay for injustice is through injustice.

I do hope, and I am sure you too would, like any other person – wish that the father change and become responsible.

Good luck.

Stay Blessed

No one do everyone talks

Dear zoneziwoh,
Actually the father is one of my uncle and I tried many times to change his behavior but do not know how i cant make him not to drink. Yes definitely both of the child are terrifically stressed and need some encouragement to walk on the life path.Their educational record is also poor and mental stage is not so hygienic. I am trying my best to help them with their studies but the problem is that they do not have peaceful place to study and they are living in only one room. lets see what i can do for them.

Dear Olutosin Oladosu - Adebowale,
I also wish to take them far away where they can laugh and play without and fear but the problem is that the society is patriotic and society will not allow to live mother and father separately without divorce. The mother don't want divorce but want to his husband to be good and he is so much in alcohol. I think need to find the way to improve the drink habit first.

Dear Nilima,
thank you for the response.I will be writing lot more stories which is hidden in my heart and mind.
with love
