LOOK: Pinay speaks out on Twitter about mental health after seeing a mom publicly condescend her child on the jeepney

Almost every child has probably experienced the pressure of making their parents proud. Whether it’d be excelling in their studies or winning medals for sports, many of these children have strived to make their parents see how worthy they are of their accolades and acceptance.

However, the reality is that not all parents recognize their children’s efforts in trying to please them. And oftentimes, their words can be a source of pain and anxiety towards the kids. So when Twitter user Nikka witnessed this on a jeepney ride, she was quite furious with the child’s mother. Here are some of the comments she had regarding this:

Nikka felt very strongly about this situation because she’s experienced this kind of condescending tone from her parents before. As she explains in this tweet, she felt very stupid every time they didn’t acknowledge her efforts.

Through this experience, Nikka advises parents everywhere to accept their children for who they are and not push them too hard to become something they are not. In the last few tweets of this thread, she emphasizes the importance of a child’s mental health.

Whether you agree or disagree with Nikka’s comments on the situation, always remember that your words will always mean something — especially when you say it to a child. Remember that the next time you try to put down someone else’s efforts!
