Does it cost more today to raise your children than before? Thanks to effort and work, the grandparents have seen their children grow up and form a couple with the house set up and the car at the door. We had our lives resolved and now we have had a particularly hard time. An older woman commented with me the other day that it caused her great sadness to see the situation her daughter and many women like us were experiencing.
Now that we have it easier in terms of education and technology to raise children, the effort of parents to raise their children is increasing. Lack of time and financial resources to make ends meet leaves families exhausted.
Those who have the wisdom to see life from the highest step of age, look down and make comparisons. They do not want to forget their past because this was the basis of what they have now achieved both personally and at work. They lived through difficult times and are proud to have made it through. They started alone with nothing, without subsidies, unemployment, or credits ... going through hardships and discomfort. And they did not want their children to go through the same thing.
Thanks to their effort and work, they have seen their children grow up and form a couple with the house on and the car at the door. We had a determined life and now we have had a particularly hard time. I include myself because I don't want my children to experience discomfort either. As my parents did with me, I have always tried to protect them, without overprotecting them, making life pleasant for them as much as possible, especially now that they are young. Childhood is a time of life that must be protected.
And now many parents like us ask ourselves if that is the way to go on this journey that we have had to live, especially when we look towards their future and all the conditions are so unpromising and even pessimistic for them, I would say. Those who went through difficult times and got ahead came out strengthened both materially and spiritually, but those who have had it easy and now must descend several steps on the ladder of social welfare, how will they recover?
It would be desirable to continue to be able to leave the children at the door of the school so that they do not walk or to live with the peace of mind that nothing undesirable happens to them, or to be able to continue simplifying their lives so that they do not have to fight or suffer. But, life itself is showing that this is meaningless. Later, when these children become independent, the parents continue trying to solve them down to the last detail.
