Each time they finished their examination and exchange pleasantries, some of her friends are excited about their homes. They cannot wait, the school authority declare an holiday. No matter how short, they just want to see daddy, mummy and siblings. Some already have their parents around and some parent sent their drivers or elders to bring them home when daddy and mummy are unavoidably busy and couldn’t come personally. The mature one who can find their way back home are awaited passionately with love and happiness.
Teslop could not understand why they are so excited as well as jealousy of such excitement. She wished she could be happy going home, but that is not real in her case, even if she fakes it! The prevalent atmosphere of her home is devoid of peace and happiness. She always loves to stay away from them. Her home was not pleasant enough for her innocent and deserved pleasures and happiness. Well, it is a long story!
Teslop is not the only child with that experience. Many children and homes have similar look with diverse features.The present family demographic status gave pathetic features. Single parent are on the increase. Majority are mothers! Many fathers are far from home! There are many fatherless, motherless and orphans in our world, courtesy of disaster, divorce, wars, death, crimes, but every child need a godly, peaceful and hope conditioned home!
Someone wrote, “Home is the place where our history begins”! Some were privileged with such home that gave them leverage to begin from stable platform while some had close to it and some were never privileged with such. Many people have different stories about their homes. However, it is a crime to institute the wrong that ever existed in the home we came from in our homes.
Imagine what someone wrote, about one of his/her parents! “I have forgiven you but I am never excited about your existence”! This is a great arrow shot at a parent who should have been loved and cared for if the responsibility of parenting have been accepted and performed adequately well.
The happy home must be the product of father and mother Godly and responsible in their respective duties. Our world seems in short supply of this but all children are in great demand of this peaceful atmosphere. I am very sure with this; there will be more inventions, productivity, discoveries and less of crime. Every child needs a peaceful home to explore and deplore God given potential and talent favourably to human usefulness.
