This Christmas, OFW Told To Have Constant Communication With Their Children

For Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) working away from home or away from people you love is one of the saddest things to endure. The second one probably is celebrating Christmas in the foreign land without your family. Much worse if you are in the countries that do not celebrate Christmas like in the Middle East.  But aside from OFWs, their family too especially children are experiencing the same feeling. Maybe not to the extent feeling of loneliness, but Christmas and New Year Celebration without a mother or a father are not complete.

For OFW children, a presence cannot be compensated with presents or gift. It means the physical presence of parents, especially during this celebration, is much important compared to what material things they received this Christmas.

According to Psychiatrist Dr. Babes Arcena, OFWs' children yearn for their parent's attention and presence. This is in spite of modern technologies we have to bridge the communication between OFWs and their children way back home. She added the feeling is different when you and your loved ones are physically together.

And because it is impossible for all OFWs to go home for Christmas, she said, OFWs should establish a constant communication with their children so that kids won't feel the loss.

She said if both parents are not around, the caregivers or guardian should take good care of the children and make them understand why their parents are working abroad.

She added that it is also important for the guardian to give genuine love and to OFWs children in the absence of parents.
