Please Them Now

Dear Post,

Today my parents are out. My sister is sitting in her locked room quietly reading a book. I did some laundry. I had some clothes that needed my touch but were left for long untouched. I've noticed that I and my sister do more stuff when my parents are out. We love home more. Maybe because we're free to do anything without anyone watching or dictating us. So in conclusion, we willingly do chores.

After my friend's father passed away, her siblings got the same effect. They were doing things their father wanted them to do in which they didn't when he was alive. These things could mean anything from simple house chores, visiting grandparents and family, or simply doing some grocery.

So my point is, why don't we all think about this, why not start thinking of pleasing our parents when they are here? or better yet, when they are alive?

You hit it spot on, "Maybe because we're free to do anything without anyone watching or dictating us." I try my best to please my parents but it's sometimes human nature to rebel and resist being told what to do. Sometimes trying so hard to please our parents can wash out our personalities. There is a natural give-and-take once you reach adulthood.
