All rewards from this post will be automatically transfered to @fucho80 as a small support to his newborn child, which will come to this world in the upcoming days. So please feel free to share, click the "upvote" button and also resteem so it's able to reach a wider audience.
|A long while ago I've met an amazing person on Steemit and we became friends since then. |
@Fucho80 is his name and we've been closely in touch for the past several months.
I've learned to value him a lot and respect his work as a Pastor in a smaller town somewhere in Venezuela.
He quickly became an important part of "project hope" and many of you surely know him already by now.
Recently, I've learned that his wife is about to give birth and I'm honestly terrified thinking of health conditions that may await them at the hospital. Naturally, part of me worries about them and for that reason I decided to ask you to join my little "quest" and also to share your view on the idea of "raising kids as an investment in our future".
CALL FOR ACTION
Obviously if you're in a position to help @fucho80 and his family with some small transfer of STEEM tokens, then please do not feel shy. Be generous instead :)
I've just transfered 100 STEEM, however I do not expect anyone else to support this case with similar amount. You can always resteem and upvote this publication (fucho80 will receive 100% rewards from this post as I set up his account as a beneficiary).
Perhaps you could also consider delegating 1 STEEM (literally one).
That simple gesture will not really change his financial situation for better, but it will surely show that we care. Sometimes it's what matters most.
WOULD YOU CONSIDER RAISING KIDS AS AN INVESTMENT IN OUR FUTURE?
|I would like to take the opportunity to ask you that very simple question. |
We've all witnessed our culture and mindset change within the past several years.
Tradition is being pushed out by technology and it's obvious that in larger cities relationships between parents and their kids are changing.
When I was young, I've learned that having kids is the best investment for the future one can plan. I was told number of times, that once we get old there won't be anyone but our kids to look after us. And I've been wondering if this is really the case in current times? Especially when I see some developed countries, where kids are considered "goverment property" and parents are only privillaged to raise them. That surely creates a very unique mindset.
I personally am not so sure about our future as parents. With the advancement of technology, smartphones, social media, IoT, 5G etc. it's hard not to realize that there will be less and less we all will have in common with our future generation. So perhaps it's the right time to ask ourselfs these few questions:
- how to raise our kids?
- how to ensure that they will not abandon us in the future?
- do we even believe that tradition of kids taking care of their parents will still exist in the next 20-30 years?
I would love to hear your opinion.
