    During the end, I was crying too but the Mother’s words comforted me. I hope one day all parents could be like that. Healthy open communication.

    I think the mom could have answered that question a little better than "you're not old enough to know." I think her daughter would have appreciated something as simple and vague as "Daddy was in a hard place in his life back then and he made some bad choices. But regardless of whatever choices he made I want you to know those were HIS choices, nor yours. And just because he made the wrong choice back then doesn't mean you have to make wrong choices now for yourself" and then go into her shpeal about how she's her own unique and strong person.

    I'm sorry, but if I'm paying for my kids phone (which I am for my 12 year old) I am checking that phone! Not cause I don't trust my kid, but because I don't trust other kids.

    As a mom to an 11 yr old... I enjoyed that the most.. it's hard for me to think my baby isn't a baby.. he has is own opinions and questions about life and love

    I think this mom is definitely doing the best she can and she is killing it with her daughter. Just the way her daughter presents herself and how she answers definitely shows that she is in the presence of a great mother.

    i’m really happy to see kids being able to express themselves and talk openly with their parents. to tell them that they don’t like how their parent does something and have an honest discussion about it without being shut down behind the “because i’m the parent” excuse. i think it’s so great that we’re out of the generation where children were seen and not heard. these kids are going to grow into really emotionally intelligent adults

    My mom always wants to be involved in any drama or issues I have when I want to handle my own issues myself, it’s really annoying because if she finds out abt any issues I’m having she just lectures me.

    When the little girl asked what would her mom give her if it were anything in the world, it felt like her mom answered her everything she wanted. Not in a selfish way. The mom said she would give her daughter peace, and maybe that is what *she* needs in that moment

    Smart little girl knowing how lessons are learned. Coddling children is the worst thing. Granted, telling your child to wear a jacket isn’t coddling, but still.

    when she started talking abt her dad, i felt her pain and what she's going through and i feel so bad for her like it's hard for other people to understand unless you've gone through it too. and when one of your parents is absent for a while you start to think they don't love you or that you're not good enough. it stays with you too. and she's so brave for asking something like that, especially when someone's taking a video and is gonna post it somewhere where it's gonna get a lot of views. i hope the best for the little girl and that everything is fine in the end even though you have breakdowns abt it every now and then.

    This makes me want to have a daughter of my own. It reminds me of the close relationship I have with my mother and I want that to be the same, passing down to my future daughters and granddaughters. It’s so important for a mother and daughter to be like this to each other. My heart crushed when she asked about her father and cried. Bless these two ladies.💗

    I am lucky my dad is a non greedy man. He was a part of a small gang and he could have expanded it and done some really bad stuff but he didn't. Instead my uncles are the ones in and out of jail without the right to see their children. my dad is a good man from bad roots as well as my mother. I am lucky that what happened to so many of my family did not happen to me and my full sister. I still want to kick the sh*t out of the man who got away with hurting my half sister that sick man should have gotten life in prison.

    'i feel like you're not ready yet because u haven't even started dating yet'
    Domestic abuse does happen in relationships.
    This is a prediction so dont take it personal x

    I would love nothing more than to sit down and do this with my mother. I feel like we don't get each other as much as we'd like to or we're not as close as we want to be. I'd also love to ask about my own father, what happened when he left, how they split and what happened when he passed.

  • I Don’t Even Know

    This would be impossible to do with my parents, especially my dad. There is no such thing as a suggestion. There is only attitude and talking back and being ungrateful. Wow gotta love being Asian

    My dad left me and my mom before I had been born and for 15 years I never knew why and when she said she kept on thinking he did something horrible I related to that and I hope her mother tells her soon because my mom kept it from me for so long and it tormented me every day and living in that constant thought I was never at peace and the mom said I want to give you peace within the only way you can do that is with the truth for her to truly be at peace

    they're so sweet.. i wish at least i can sit that close to my mum face to face even without saying anything without crying a river bc there's so much i hide so much pain from her, how I've been getting part time job for my college since i was 10yo (when i found out how broke my family is, but i started part time when i was 15yo) until now im 18yo, i matured too soon, how i miss my child-self, how i want to talkin to my mum without feeling awkward, how i wish we have those kind of love a mom&daughter have so that i won't be this awkward when i have to hug her. i don't even remember when was the last time i hug her. how i want to tell her i want to feel loved, because of lack of love, i don't even love myself. how lonely i am, and how i want my mum to at least say "good job" for me after i achieve everything while she always favor my sister. i did my best up until now, even many people envy me and praise me but she always said that i need to work harder for the best result. how people think im cocky bc i seems not happy whenever they compliment me, i never talked my mind out but it was bc i want to hear a single word from mama.. thank god i live by myself in different city bc of college, so that i have a place to cry my eyes out and locked myself, without being disturbed by people who worry about me cus theres no one worry or even care about me..
    yea, thats my beautiful life..

    2:18 oh my god I wish my mom would be like that haha, she always wants to see what I'm doing on my phone, like geez I'm growing into a teenager I need some space mom, I get it though, she wants to make sure everythings okay, and make sure I'm not doing anything bad, but honestly why would I?, She's like that because my older brother got caught texting people inappropriately which sucks, and he won't learn his lesson so she took his phone away, he is already a teenager, some teenager boys are straight up disgusting (no offense ❤)

    I think that her mom explains a lot of things and this makes it more understandable for the daughter when there is something she wants to keep from her for a little longer.

    The moment she said " A better place to live, your own room " ı had no doubt that she was a loving and caring mother. Every good parent ı met would said the same thing, ı k'now it from my own mom lol she raised me all by herself always loved me more than anything put me over anyone etc it is just obvious that this woman loves her child as every parent should love their kids.

    i don’t live with my mom, i live with my aunt, and everyday i wonder... y did she have to let me go. she’s says for me to have a better life, but it’s so hard here..... my mom was my pure happiness, when i’m down she would be there to pick me up, when i need help she’s there, her words meant everything to me... because then i was mentally happy..... now, i haven’t seen her in two years, mentally i’m not okay, no one really cares about those things here, i never got a “u can do it” or a “i love u no matter what”, a nice little quote, i never get that anymore, when that’s all i need to keep me going 😪 i can’t tell anyone my feelings, ppl at skool won’t get it, my aunt wont get it, so what do i do..... lay down with my dog, and listen to music ❤️
