Living Life One Prayer at a Time

My Parent is Sick…

Last week we dealt with fighting with your parents, but this week we’ll deal with something much more serious. When your parent is sick there isn’t much you can do about it, but try to be helpful and supportive. During their time of illness, try to help your parent as much as you can

Chip Says:

If you have or know someone who has a parent that is sick you know how hard it can be to cope with. During those kinds of hardships it is important to remember to keep God close by in our hearts. Do the best you can to help your parents and loved ones and talk to them about what is going on in your life.

Remember to pray for your parents and remember that even if it doesn’t seem like it at the time, God loves you and your family. Your parent might not get better right away just from your praying but one thing that you can be sure about is that God is listening to your prayers, is watching over you, and is working in mysterious ways. One thing that also might help you deal with this hard time is staying by your parent’s side even if you are scared for them because they need you now more than ever before.

Some other ways that you can comfort you parents and help them is by doing some of the things that they can’ t and by helping around the house with chores. You can help make dinner, do your homework without being asked, and maybe even help younger siblings with their homework if they need it. However, your parent might want to continue doing some of these things if they enjoy them. Don’t go to overboard and not allow them to do anything, but instead help them do things that are now hard for them. And finally, talk to your parents about things that you can’t deal with alone. Make sure that you follow your heart so that he can help you to be guided by the Holy Spirit.

When one of your parents is sick there isn’t much you can do, but there is a little bit out there. When your parent is sick you should want to help them as much as you can, especially if you have a little brother or sister. When you have little siblings that your parent can’t take care of anymore, you have to step up.

One thing you can do to help your parent(s), while that person is sick is to first of all make sure things like dinner and your brothers and sister are taken care of. If you don’t know how to cook, well then you might have a problem. See that’s the reason why God gave us the people who created toasters and microwaves. I guarantee it will be tough while your parents are sick and you will have to help out around your house if anything is to get done.

First of all, depending on the sickness, you should try and help your parent to get better. If the illness is something just as simple as a cold, make sure that your parent is drinking plenty of fluids and getting plenty of rest. Remember that rest is an important part of letting your parent get better in any situation. I know all of you out there deeply love and care about your parents, not to mention you probably don’t like doing the extra work around the house, so you’ll most likely want your parent to get well as soon as possible. But don’t try too hard with helping out. Nobody likes being stuck in their house all the time and the last thing they want is to be told they can’t even leave their bed.

Just remember that your parents will love the help you give them and really appreciate all the hard work you’ve done for them. The reward in the end will be greatly worth it.

With love,
