A fictional story of my childhood

The New Sheriff

by pbomar1115

The established way my family followed was like many families structures back 'In The Day. It was when fathers headed the house. He was the basic breadwinner of the family. He had the last word unless Mom stepped in for a praiseworthy reason, which was on rare occasions.

Those moments arrived when he'd grasp something he did not recognize. And just because he made the money, he’d let you know when you earned no rough treatment.  But without a doubt, he controlled home.

Also, when there were disagreements between Mom and Dad, it appeared more like a debate, not like a big dragged out argument I watched at my friend’s Luther's house. In fact, struggle together habits within the home — like what we saw between Mom and Dad was, present the best you can to work together. The strategy doesn’t apply merely to wed couples but to individuals. And always work with the effort to evade conflict, accept guidelines, and be considerate to others. 

Many people in society have forgotten this basic principle. Instead, they’d go looking for trouble, which reminds me that a good patriarch says the world has enough trouble. It needs no one to add to its cup. It’s full enough. Work hard at whatever you do with your life. Time will pass so fast you’ll wonder where it went. Try to be helpful and kind. One day you will need someone, and you will be glad you did your part. In summation, societies don’t recognize the father as the brain of the household. Obviously, the mothers keep that position.
