|Love For Life
Raised with strict family values, I cringe to phrases like, "I can’t wait to get my
children out of the house," or "As soon as my children reach 18, they are on their own."
I become shocked to discover that age defines the release date in which children are no
longer supported by parents. Children are the offspring to which parents give birth to in
life. Regardless of the age, an individual will always be a child to one’s mother or father
and should receive support until, and beyond, the age of being released into the world.
Support is the assistance provided on earth. In order to live happily in this world, one must
be supported or support themselves with food, a house, finance, security, approval,
acceptance, and love. These, all of which are determined by Abraham H. Maslow, a well-
respected psychologist, are the "hierarchy of needs." These are needs that everyone
should have the ability to acquire.
