TO MY ONE & ONLY

To my one and only,

I Appreciate you being a sport minded person. From wrestling and boxing as your passing hobbies, then basketball, which we both liked and you enjoyed most.

This time, I allowed you to join the Taekwondo training thinking it would only be a past time for you, but when you asked my permission to join the school tournament as a representative of your level, I never say YES. We argued about it and you are mad at me.

I don’t care if you’d think I never supported you. How can I allow my one and only to get hurt with kicks and punches and who knows what will happen out there? Call me selfish, but I just love you that I couldn’t even bear to think you would be physically hurt. You knew my reasons, and it will never change.

As a Parent, we encourage our kids to do the things they truly enjoyed and promise them to support in any ways we can, but what if we don’t agree in the dreams they have chosen? and they thought we are the one who’s blocking their path to success?

Truly, it is a challenge to guide them while being objective about our own feelings as a Parent.

  1. Parenting sure is hard but don’t be afraid! I’m sure he’s going to be fine. It’s better to get hurt in a tournament rather than in a street brawl. (Also my brother does Taekwondo and he never gets badly hurt)
