From a female blog reader:
Please keep me anonymous I need your help. I am from the family of Six. My dad, mum, I and my three siblings. Now this is the problem. My dad stopped working when I was in SS2 then my mum had to run up and down in other to finance my education and that of my younger ones (I am the first child) my mum isn’t one rich woman all she does is to hustle so her children won’t suffer and with this recession Nigeria is facing things has not easy for her. Now I am done with my university education, serving the Federal government (My mum sponsored all that to, together with my younger ones). Bfor I forget my mum was rili sick when I was in 100 level and I was scared she was gonna die bcz the sickness was so serious that she went in coma for three good days, with all this my isn’t still moved he just eats, sleep and that’s all making my mum cater for every responsibility in the house. She is suffering from diabetes and still can’t struggling a lot, u need to see her, she looks older than her age because of the stress and all my dad does is jus to eat, sleep and he is now looking younger than the woman that is really struggling so that he can eat.
Now, The second child of the family just gained admission and my mum as bin trying her possible best to make things work out for him in school but it has not been very easy.
Bob what can I do about my dad’s case? I tot God said Women should assist the men bt in this case it’s diff she has bin d one doin everything and still he has not been assisting her at all, my mum has complained abt nd complained but still no changes, she told his family members about this but still no changes. What can be done please to make him change and the most annoying part is that he is an evangelist of a particular church, the pastor of the church just act like he knows nothing is happening in our family, he does not care, he does not even help financially I need people’s advice
