The quote “Next to God thy parents” is no doubt true. There is no denying the fact that God sends us to this wonderful planet but it is our parents who give us birth and be with us till the last. Childhood is a very important phase where you need parents the most. Their love and sacrifice nurture us into a good human being.
It is at the time of our Childhood that our parents adapt and adjust themselves to a lot of things. Firstly, they keep all their aspirations and desires aside to provide us with the best of everything. Secondly, they go days and night without sleeping to make sure that we are okay. The amount of love and sacrifice that parents do is immeasurable.
