You know there is a saying in Mandarin that goes like this, “你最深爱的人，伤你最深“ the one you love the most,hurt you the most...........
Admittedly, I do have a little favoritism towards the first born over the second,so admittedly again,sometimes I am not being equal to the both of my boys as I wish I could have or always shall be but the stark fact is that's so true that I do have favortism.
It was on a late Saturday evening, I told Jovial that it was time for him to stop playing online game and rest cos it had been few hours straight playing just that.online games. (Maple Story),he was not kind of happy at my instruction but he gave in nevertheless.
Instead,he turned on the TV, I told him to get to sleep again and I told him that I needed to sleep too cos I needed to get up very early to go for my run, I requested him to turn off the light
as well, he said he didn't want to, again I told him papa could not sleep with the light on and he said,"that's my problem"
To me,"that's my problem" is a great blow to me, my 14 years old son smacked me with that statement and without hesitation I told him straight to his face that I was indeed hurt by that statement.
I don't know may be it was because I have been molly coddling him subtly without me even realized it all this while because he was the first born or because I have been giving him to much to his requests..................
P/S : S**t my son said that to me
