Had a meeting with a client. He is an elderly gentleman, a retired school principle.
He interrogated my background: where was I raised, who are my parents, how many siblings do I have, and what do they work as.
He then told me, Father must be a great man, who worked sincerely, using honest money. Why do you say that, I asked. Because all of his children are successful. And we were fed with 'air tangan ibu', my mother, who is a housewife.
Then, he shared his experiences, teaching his students, who were the sons and daughters of this profession of my father- "Jahat, nakal-nakal! Pakcik rasa, mesti sebab bapa dia ambil rasuah! Sebab tu dapat anak macam tu!"
I am proud of my parents.
But I don't think it's fair to blame the children's behaviours solely on the parents lah...
Stress pulak aku nak jadi Mak ni. Haha.
