Sons, daughters and daughters-in-laws, when do you think is the best time to teach the old couple a lesson? The best time to instill fear into them is when they are old. They are most vulnerable when they have no source of income, when they have no ‘nest’ of their own to fall back upon. When they are now totally dependent on you!
To keep themselves warm, to have a roof over their heads, to have food in their stomachs, for all their daily needs they now have to turn to you, what better time to indoctrinate them with fear of you?
What are the best ways to strike fear into them? How to turn them into putty in your now gleeful hands? How about starting off with ignoring them, withdraw your love from them. Get your own children, their grand-children , to do the same.
Batter them into submission, threaten to send them to the old folks home. This should do the trick! This threat of total isolation from their flesh and blood should send shivers down their spines. You wtll have no more resistance.
All these may seem cruel, but what else is there left for you to do. How else to get them to do your biddings. You cannot let them have wills of their own, can you? They are no longer productive, contributing members of the family. They are now a drain on your physical, financial resources, aren’t they? They are a constraint on your freedom and private space now, aren’t they? They have to be put into their own places, make to know their present positions.
They must know who is the boss now. You call the shots now, not they. They must know who is at the top of the totem pole now.
You can do all these, beat them into total submission, but be forewarned. There is a natural law called ‘cause and effect‘. What you do now may be what you may reap in your own twilight years though! For your own children are watching. They are not only watching, they are also internalizing, absorbing what they are witnessing.
Frightening thought, isn’t it?
Don’t ever hurt or abuse your parents. You can never repay the debts you owe them. When you eat the fruits, always remember the trees.
Come visit again. Thank you.
