Home and family members are very important in human life. It would not be wrong to say that the family system completes a person socially, morally, psychologically, and spiritually. Child rearing and the mutual behavior of husband and wife play a major role in the family system. The relationship between husband and wife, parents, and siblings has to develop a peaceful and healthy society. Today's topic is "Child". The bitterness between husband and wife affects their parenting and thus the child cannot escape the effects of this bitterness.

Many of us consider marriage as important for our emotional satisfaction, but we close our eyes to this unforgettable aspect called "responsibility". Marriage is a name of responsibility in which husband and wife act as two wheels in the vehicle of life. If there is no mutual respect between husband and wife, life becomes a torment. The mental health of men who marry for their satisfaction is like that of a hunter who keeps changing his prey and targets.

If the hunter is male then one after another female and if female then one male after another. Such men and women do not care about the effects of their actions on their children. It is difficult to imagine the pain that an innocent soul goes through in this way. We have seen more and more that it is more common for men to have children after marriage and leave their wives for new marriages or have illicit relations with other women. Such men destroy their children's self-respect and self-esteem for their sensual pleasure.

When a man cheats on his wife and child after having a child with a woman and abandons them, these situations have very dangerous effects on the child. In an ignorant society like ours, where people find fault with others, where it is common to mock others and put others down, such children die. There is no one to look inside such a child. No one reads it. No one listens to him.

At the age when he was supposed to enjoy life by engaging in sports, he sows the seed of seriousness in himself which in time becomes a young tree. This seriousness makes him prematurely old. Quarrels between parents or separation of the father from the child destroys the child's mental health. In the same way, the reproaches of the father's relations with non-women do not leave the child anywhere. A child becomes lonely even among his friends because his thinking goes beyond that of boys his age.

The circumstances created by the father punish him for sins he did not commit. A single mother is unable to complete the child, in this, the space of the father's shadow becomes a lifelong deprivation. A morally sick man cannot form a healthy society and for such a man, childbearing is just a job. Training this child is not part of such a man's scheme.

Four marriages are permissible in Islam. But these hypocrites do not talk about the fact that Islam has set the condition of doing justice. Islam prefers to live with a woman because it is possible and easy to do justice. To scapegoat one's wife and especially the child just to fulfill a selfish desire and without any legal or medical reasons is cruel. In a society where marriage is just a fashion and the father is engrossed in his fun, you tell me where the child should go.......?

In a world where responsibilities are neglected and the sanctity of family bonds is compromised, the plea emerges for a reevaluation of priorities, a commitment to responsible parenthood, and a collective effort to shield the innocent from the repercussions of marital discord.

    Well considered, Naveed. Too many children are abandoned because of the selfishness of parental needs.

    This is a well written and thought provoking article. Well done! You said one word that has become a recent important topic: Responsibility. Any long-term relationship, especially of the romantic nature, requires some degree of responsibility for the other person's physical and emotional well-being. A relationship is a partnership where one nourishes the other in times of stress or heartbreak. If an adult is not able to shoulder these responsibilities, he or she will be isolated and lonely. Adult children will either mimic what they witnessed in their parents' relationship, or be so strong in their conviction to not be like them that they will do the opposite. This is truly a hard and courageous choice on the part of the adult child. It is up to us to break the chains of generational trauma in order to secure a happy life not only for ourselves, but for our loved ones.

    This is a great topic, Naveed. Often times the child suffers. Sadly, they pay for their parents actions instead of enjoying their childhood. Thank you for bringing awareness.

    Superbly written!!! Children suffer and that is shameful!!!

  • Catherine Nyomendaabout a month ago

    I believe that no child should suffer from the choices of their parents. It's unfair to have to make them choose between two people who brought him into this world. This was well written, keep it up.

    Excellent article! Unfortunately, my parents were divorced when I was 2. I didn't experience the impact until I was about ten when I started asking questions about him. He eventually stopped coming around after I turned 5-6.

  • JBazabout a month ago

    An important issue to discuss. You presented it well with facts. Not an easy topic to write about, glad you did

  • I used to not believe in the concept of "Generational Curses", but the more I look at life, and study Human Psychophysiology, the more I believe there is Truth to it. I wouldn't say that children are necessarily "doomed" when they have a bad Father, I myself did not have my Father growing up due to his having multiple families, and I think I turned out alright. But I do know that it is not easy for the mother or the child in these situations, and most children do not end up as fortunate as I was with how my mother approached the situation. I too believe that there needs to be more accountability when it comes to having children - the Impacts often are detrimental and far-reaching.

    As the proverb states, the fathers eat the sour grapes, but the children's teeth are set on edge. You write with compassion, Naveed, for those without any defenses. Thank you.
