I am a parent.
My kid is 7.
She has no money and no job.
She wants to buy sneakers.
She can’t afford them.
I tell her I have some, I give her some, and I tell my husband to take her to the store.
He doesn’t have time for that.
I have to go back to the office and make the phone calls.
My son is 10 years old, he doesn’t know anything.
I’m trying to convince him to buy some sneakers for his sister, who is also a teacher.
They are not expensive, but I can’t buy the sneakers myself.
She doesn’t even know what a sneaker is.
They’re made in China.
We go into the store and they tell us they don’t have any sneakers for her.
My daughter is 10, she’s so embarrassed.
She tells me that the shoes don’t fit, and she has a doctor’s note that says, “I can’t wear them,” and I said, “What is that?
You can’t make them if you have money?”
My daughter’s mother is a doctor.
She came to the United States to get help and now she’s been sent back to China.
I just want her to know that if she needs help, we have a place to go to get it.
You have to make the best of it.
When you have to do it, make it fun, but not too much fun.
I can say I’m proud of my daughter.
She’s always smiling, she has such a good sense of humor, she is very smart, she always thinks ahead.
She was on a trip to China last year, and we spent a couple of days in China shopping.
She didn’t have shoes, so we decided to take a plane to get her some sneakers.
I bought her a pair of sneakers for a year, but she never went back.
She wanted to buy a car, she wanted a house.
When she got home, she was crying, and it made me feel guilty.
I didn’t want to think about her.
She had no money, no job, and now I can see why she didn’t buy a shoe.
When I asked her, she said, I didn’ want to take the risk.
It’s like, you want to pay me back?
She has her shoes, she can wear them, she doesn’t need anything.
So what is she going to do?
She was going to buy her own shoes.
What can I do?
It’s a lot easier for my son than it is for my daughter because I can control her.
We’ve got a budget and I can spend it.
It doesn’t matter what, I can do it.
But my daughter was going on a little vacation with her friends, and after dinner we were watching the news.
My mother said, What are they going to report about the car crash?
My daughter said, They’re going to say it was a girl who was wearing a white dress.
And my mother said to me, You have no idea how stupid that is.
It made me mad, so I said to my husband, How do you think they’re going get their news?
My husband said, It doesn’ matter what they say.
It just comes down to money.
She said, When I got home from school, I was angry.
I said I want to see my mom again.
I don’t want them to think I’m going to be crazy about them.
And I didn’,t know how to say anything to my daughter about her mom.
My husband is my wife, he’s my life.
He’s the one who gave me the first child.
We don’t even talk about her, we don’t talk about anything.
We’re so good at each other, but at the end of the day, we need to work together.
We talk about how we’re going see each other every day, but we never get to see each another.
My child is an expert.
She knows what she wants to do, but her parents don’t know how much money she needs.
When it comes to paying off her loan, it’s like we have to take care of each other.
The only thing we have in common is love.
We have a child and a husband who are so important to us.
My wife has to take all of the responsibility for it, and he has to support her financially, too.
We can’t just do it for ourselves.
I told my husband the truth.
I say to my wife in my heart, I’m doing this for my child, and if you want me to do this for you, you’re going the wrong way.
My brother and I are also doing this.
We are trying to make sure we’re helping our kids.
We were on the road to a good life and we couldn’t afford the shoes, but it’s my job to help my daughter
