Broken families sometimes make a kid weaker for he/she sees his/her family in a not good condition. Some kids end up being a rebel and some live their life as they should. Broken families really affect a kid's mental health. And we should care about it. I came from a broken family. My mother dies because of illness and my father has his own family now. Yes, he has a new family now and I live in my sister's house together with her family. I even live in my brother's house with their family also. It is not easy to move to different houses because you only live in your sibling's houses. But I have no choice since my stepmother did not like me. My life is indeed miserable but I still know that I have a family even if it is broken. That I still have a reason to work hard on my studies for them to be proud of me. I work as much as I can to show them how I love them so much. That even if we are now separated for having their own lives with their families, I am still here, working hard, showing my best and aiming my dreams for them. I am just an 18-year-old daughter who wants the best for them. For every parent around, cheer up your kids, they have silent battles that they cannot open up to you. They need you to comfort and be their ally. You can help them by showing them that you're always on their side and that you're willing to catch them even if they fall from those battles they have. They love you as much as they love their lives. To all sons and daughters. I know that it is hard to prove ourselves to our parents. It is hard to study and to give them grades that are worth their hardships. But most importantly, we are trying, at least we are trying to do things that will make them proud and happy. Do not give up on your dreams and never stop working hard. You can do it and you will do it. I know it is hard. Things are definitely hard but upon keeping yourself going and moving forward, things will never be hard. Believe and trust yourself and skills for you are you and I know you can do it.
