Even kids born here to perfectly polish parents, they are only polish "on the paper". They go to a kindergarten, then to school, they have friends of variety of backgrounds..., and start being different from their parents, even though they are chowing down home made pierogi by polish mum. All my polish friends-mums, have the same issue. There is a big disconnect. It changes later in life for them, and/or for their children. It's very normal.
Definitely not me. Family comes first, then food, soccer, and then finally friends :]
then food, soccer, and then finally friends :]
Joke of course
I was definitely raised the Polish way, and hopefully I can move to Poland, buy a nice house, and have my parents come live with me when they are older. No nursing homes for Polish familes. It's not what we do. How can you abandon those who raised you to become who you are? It's not right. They can live with me as long as they want, I don't mind. Try finding and American who'd say that. :]
