I remember my dad and lots of my friends dad saying this to us. That we should suffer so dat wen we grow up we will be sensible. That they track 10 miles 2 school during their days (since their was no cars or public transport was vry expensive), that they use slate (chalkboard) 2 write instead of books as we av 2day. That they eat once in a day and so on n so forth.
Am wondering how many people wud let their children go tru hardship because u suffered same. Such parents i bliv ar insensitive to the current state of tins.
For me, my kids will get d best of evrytin as long as i can afford it.
