“Don’t give your parents money in their old age, give them more of your attention” – Reno Omokri - a month ago
Human rights activist, Reno Omokri encourages the need to shower parents with attention in their old age other than gifts that they cannot enjoy.
According to the notable author, parents often suffer and die of loneliness more in their old age due to lack of proper attention from their children.
Taking to Instagram to share the piece of advice, Reno Omokri wrote;
“Don’t just give your parents money in their old age. Give them something more than money. Give them your attention. Call them often. More of their friends die as they age and they suffer from loneliness. Ease their pain.
You spend hours everyday chatting on WhatsApp with acquaintances and associates who have not sacrificed for you like your parents. You talk on the phone for ages with your love interest and business partners. You have so many people to talk to. Now, imagine if all of these people that you talk to are suddenly no more, would you not feel lonely and depressed? In fact, stop reading this and call your parents now!”
