Poem: Good Luck ! Sons and Daughters! video...

Updated on January 22, 2012

Good luck!

Sons/ Daughter!

The parent’s role

In every household

As God’s chosen


Should always

last forever.

It travels on

from your child

is born

I can never change

not ever!


Because no two


Are ever going

To be totally


Parents should

Make it


Based on what

They have seen.

And now know.

Always hold

That necessary

Family meetings

To discuss



After those

Helpful signs.


Possible schedules.

It must be so!

For in addition

It is usually the

Children who

Will dictate

And also decide

When they are

ready to ride

Time to go

Doesn’t mean

Time to leave

Going is one

Leaving is another

So by them

Wisely using

The very best


To take all

The necessary

Advantage of time

To discuss some of

Those difficult

Things that

Most children

That age would

Usually have hidden

Up their sleeves.

Until that day when

They are fully


Both in their


At home,

On the outside

And physical


From a child until

That time which

They have decided

Is best to leave.

It is the greatest joy

Going out well


Continuing in those

Beautiful ways

That’s usually

Expertly passed

On to you, the children.

Through love

The constant

And tireless teachings

Of your beautiful


Don’t try growing up

Too quick


Depending on

How well you

Might have learned

There is a high


You are not going

To make it

It is also wise to

Stay at home

Once you recognize

That you are not ready

Make most of your

Errors at home

While your best

most meaningful help

Is still around

And near enough

that you can

ask them sincerely

Let them teach you

again and quickly

Listen to everything

They say

So that those things

In you that has

not has not as yet

been fully saturated

they now will!

There are no rooms

for rent with

your parents.

It is simply what it is!

There are no

Such things

As a free lunch!

What there is now?

Is maturity and still

living at home

without any direction.

Not one with a

Pride filled reason

where your parents

can now celebrate

The cost of living


Or staying with

Your parents.

Are two absolutely

Different situations

All together

Where you live

And where you stay

Are always different

Things where you stay

Are usually out of

your control.

Where someone’s

Child lives,

Both parents and child

Should have plenty

To say in decisions

Your home is never

The place where

You stay.

So is home a mystery?

Alternatively no!

But simply relative?

The ways of the parents

Are the guidelines.

They protected, watch

And hold custody.

There is also an

Instinctive understanding

As to the best time

Vacating of the nest.

That helps tremendously

It usually allows for a

Beautiful start to that

Transition all kids must

Make into life

A whole lot less difficult.

It is that same fear

Which keeps some kids

In the nest too long

When you find them

To be always singing

That old redundant song

Poor management

On the parents part.

Your kids must not be

Allowed to act like

You’re Parents.

Put and end to that

Tone of voice,

You are no first

Their parents

When that’s understood

Then you can be friends

You are their guides

On this leg

Of your journey

When life calls

For directions

Hope you not in trouble

Looking to run and hide!

Give them

The correct teachings


As often as necessary!

Make it sooner than later.

Good luck!

      Thank you very much tipoague. After reading your wonderful story showing love and appreciation to your dad whom you were so proud to place on the heights where parents strive to be , where the kids approval in the end , is one that comes from a deep appreciation for parents standing strong at those time when kids needs it the most. I sincerely thank you for sharing such a beautiful piece. You wrote for many of us to our Fathers, our parents on a whole.

      So this comment from you means quite a lot , it's quite inspiring. It's for those same reasons I share the story of my Dad. Thank You!

      The reason I had asked you how long that piece, took you that time, is so that I myself can gauge my own writing. I know you are a great writer and a truthful one for sure and I as long as I know I am being sincere , I simply roll on , and typos and other little things squeezes in, I literally hate going over my thoughts it feels as if , I would always see something that needs changing.

      That again and I really do appreciate your comments.

      Words of wisdom well spoken. To this day, my children will call us for advice if a problem arises. It is nice to know that they will ask for help when needed, but still try to make it on their own. Thanks for the beautiful poetry.

      Yes that's the way to a great start , can't easily be fooled , but doing this while learning the ways of the outside, those are the discussions that will later prove priceless.

      Thanks Gypsy Rose Lee, much appreciated .

      Give Thanks.

      You are so right. The very best thing that parents can do is to teach their children well and tell them that if they hear things to the contrary in the outside world to come home and discuss the matter with mom and dad.

      He He He and you were so lucky , because it was quite obvious to me that you have seen the light in relation to children then and children now. That's why I feel so strongly to say as much as I know because the kids nowadays tend to try some of the same tricks the try among their friends , with their parents when they do not get their way , they try to revert to tactics, worse that what the mother and father will do among themselves.

      As soon as that behavior is accomplished with their parents, that is it , who not can they turn to for discipline? Mom and Dad have suddenly become weaker than my friends .

      The least we as parents can do is give the correct way a sincere effort , even for that you will be rewarded and Blessed!

      I only said he he , because I feel the truth ,and a s long as a parent do not use the experience that they know works , once you have been through life enough to have your own transition from your parents- you got the answer, you have the experience.

      It feels great to say what correct to anyone but it's extra rewarding with kids.

      Sincere thanks to you 'AE" for your reading and always great comments.

      Always a pleasure to read your advice to the young. Going out into the world for the first time is a scary situation, having a solid background is essential for a successful transition. I can remember how excited i was to finally be ' on my own ' It wasn't long until i ran back home and was much more appreciative..Thank you Sky, another great message...Cheers

      Thanks brethren Frank I believe when one have kids or are going to have them , this is the most beautiful pain one can ever feel ,both mother and father.

      There is none other like it , I give thanks to God for my Mother each and every day.

      In her days there were no doctors that you can just go to the hospital , there was the "mid wife" who lived in the neighborhood , that's your doctor , no pain killer nothing but know how , it's natural childbirth. So it's understood that for the mothers to make such a sacrifice for any child , as my Mom did for me . THAT IS LOVE !

      I will never stop loving her. Parenthood is not a game to be played , it's the shape you are molding the remainder of your life into and that should be understood by both parents and children.

      You think I could ever stand up in front of my mother to even roll my eyes of show anger, or another kids in my era in my birthplace? Maybe in my dreams.

      We were too busy enjoying the beauty that is life and having parents who loved us.

      I can go on forever , but there must be this place for gratitude. so I sincerely thank you for always reading and leaving comments that provides the energy to continue.

      God Bless.

      Give thanks Brethren Frank.

      Morning to you Ghaelach and sincerely thanks to you Sis, first let me say to you that the feelings is mutual , I also stopped by a few time but did not leave any comment, there is absolutely wrong there , because I am the one who allows whatever good, to roll me around as it wishes and sometimes you can get carried away, not in any bad way . but things happen , and the things that happens are like this from you a reminder , that you miss something or someone, and I thank you for this.With no love lost whatsoever, I will be again stopping by soon.

      I thank you sincerely for such a brave comment, and coming from you it's an honor.

      Best of great health and God's blessings.

      Give thanks.
