You just got back from school the previous day and stayed in bed till the next morning giving yourself a long welcome back home sleep even though it was bright already. Then you heard a loud voice calling you; it’s a voice you recognize so well and in the same tone it’s been used since you were a child. The voice of your mother!
You hurry out of bed wondering why she stills talks to an ‘undergraduate’ you the same way she talked to a ‘primary school’ you.
This is the case of some grownups in their homes and you keep wondering what’s wrong. Some of the reasons you’re still seen as a child even when you’re grown up are:
- You’ve not shown responsibility
You’re still always told what to do around the house even when you obviously know what to do. You still enjoy been ordered about and can’t even control your
younger siblings (if you have any).
- You are not productive
For every season of your life, there’s a level of productivity expected of
you which you probably haven’t been exhibiting. Trust me when I say parents
respect children who are productive and to an extent can relieve them of
one or two financial burdens. Even though they can afford whatever you need, your financial independence gives them inner joy.
- They are your parents
Your mum, dad or both parents are just like that. They may not accept change; can be quite domineering or want to control everything around the house. You’ve just got to be patient and polite with them while you keep being responsible and productive.
But if you detest being treated as a child, then you’ve got to step up your game and be an adult. Eventually they will get the point.
And to our dear mommas’ be sure to give your children the respect they deserve at every phase of their lives, they’ve got emotions too you know!
So let’s talk beautified ladies, what are the other reasons you think grownups are still treated as children in a home?
