Every evening I wait by the stairs for mom and dad to return from office, in vain! I never get to see them, as they come home very late from work, well past my bed time. My housekeeper takes care of me then.  You know, my parents are very special! They are the weekend parents!

        Kids are not first priority anymore,all are behind materialistic things.love ,peace and family are long lost.

        Yes. While I am not against working moms, I guess they should draw a line somewhere where they can devote some time to their kids too!

        Yes even I am not against as finance is very much needed to survive but what to say for those who things money is only thing that child needs.

    That is so sad Radhika. We are living in such a busy world. Today, wealth is measured with time.You are rich as much as you have a time. If your life costs are on the monthly basis 3000$ and you have in your pocket 3000$,then you are rich one month!

      Thanks Ben. My heart goes out to such children who grow up in their own company. The world has truly become an always busy hub!

    Most working parents are like that nowadays. they leave the house while the child is still asleep and go home where the child is already asleep.

    Sad but true! Parents who are caught in the whirlwind of their busy lives and career while the child asks not for those expensive gifts that are guiltily showered upon them but a little time and attention – the most costly of all and one that has become very precious today
