8-year-old sister is scared of her mother! [Hello Counselor / 2017.07.24]


That must be your friend. Let’s meet her. – Hello. / – She’s so pretty. I thought Sujin’s younger sister. What do you guys say about Sujin’s mom? Could you please tell us in detail? A mom who’s scary and obsessive. Everybody knows that they will be yelled at if they date Sujin. They would get yelled at just by dating her? That text that she read. “I want to hold you. I love you.” Do you think that’s too much? Or does everyone your age say that? Everyone says that. Do you say something that’s even worse? I’m sure you don’t, but… Yes. The whole school knows about you. What do you think? I’m happy that boys know about me. Of course, you would feel that way. What about her friends? I feel a little bad about that. You feel bad… She has no intention of changing her ways. She seems satisfied. She’s probably relieved. (Indeed, a tyrant mother) You’re trying to keep her close to you. What if she is unable to socialize with others? She doesn’t get to meet her friends. She’s always with you. She’ll lose her social skills. What do you think about that? I let her go out if she tells me in advance. But you won’t let her out after the curfew. She must keep her curfew. Then you’re not really letting her go out. Coming home at 4 or 5 is not letting her go out. That’s true, but… I’m afraid she’ll be meeting boys. Why can’t you trust your daughter a bit more? I think she will go wild once she becomes an adult. She’s free once she graduates high school. Look. She doesn’t know anything. Then she’s free after she graduates high school. What are you going to do if she goes too wild? I wouldn’t be seeing it anyway. What are you talking about? Let’s talk to Sujin again. How frustrating. Is she nice to you when you’re home before curfew? She usually doesn’t talk to me much. She doesn’t? When I tell her about my day at school she only responds to things she’s interested in. Do you often argue with her at home? When we do, I try to make amends with her first by talking to her. But she just ignores me. She usually stays mad for 3 or 4 days. Why? This is absurd. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? I’m a bit curt, but she is, too. She won’t talk to me either. Is it because you live in a small village? No. Does she get angry often? She gets angry over nothing. For example? If I don’t clean my room, she gets mad and says, “If you won’t clean up, go live in an orphanage.” Why did you say such a thing? That must’ve been hurtful. I got carried away. (I got too worked up) That’s still too harsh. I guess she doesn’t use violence though. – Just on the head. / – On the head? She pulls on your hair? Like this. She hits your head? That’s so aggravating. Until when do you think she’ll obey to you? Until she graduates from high school? She may be obedient. But she’ll have anger and grudge pent up inside her. She isn’t happy about obeying you right now. If it goes too far things may get really bad. She may run away from home. You’re harassing her right now. Is she like this to your sisters, too? They’re too young. How old are they? They’re 6 and 8 years old. Let’s meet her younger sister. Hi. Hello. She’s so cute. Will you please introduce yourself? I’m Wi Suin in first grade. How cute. (Nice to meet you) You’re in first grade now. Does mom yell at you often? – Did you get scolded often? / – Yes. When are you scolded? When I don’t clean. When I chew food loudly. You clean the house, too? (Nod) What do you do? Do you clean your room? I don’t have my own room. I’m sorry. (Embarrassed) Who gets scolded the most at home? My older sister. Why do you think that is? She’s afraid to hurt her sister’s ego. She doesn’t know whose side to take. I’m sure this is the hardest moment in her life. How do you feel when your sister and mom argue? I’m scared. – Sure. / – That’s right. She’s not upset. She’s scared. Do you want the scolding to stop? Yes. Are you afraid of what mom will think? Are you scared of your mom? Yes. Are your sisters afraid of mom, too? They flinch when mom yells at them. They ask before they do anything. May I drink water? May I go to the bathroom? They ask those things? Mom, may I drink water? May I go to the bathroom? What else is there? It’s like they’re in the army. The training camp. What else do they ask? They ask if it’s okay to eat sweets. Why must they ask for your permission? I never told them to. They just do it. They ask me if they can eat something because they eat all the time. So I try to control it. As for the bathroom, I’m afraid that they might get a bladder infection. So I tell them to go less. I think that’s why they ask me for permission. You can feel it, too, right? That they are afraid of you. Why do they ask me that? I asked Sujin that, too. I will tell you why. It’s because you said “Don’t” too many times. You said it more often than “Do.” You should let go a little. If you are able to discuss your curfew with your mom and she asks you what time you would prefer… 7 p.m. That’s not bad at all. It’s right after “Star Family’s Photo Trip” ends. I’m curious… You never discussed the time with her, right? She wouldn’t come home even after the sunset. But you never asked her what time she would prefer? She just decided it on her own. I did ask her once. I asked and she said 6 p.m. So you changed it to 5 p.m.? There must be a reason why you decided on 5 p.m. I said 5 p.m. because it was before it got dark. It’s still bright at 8 p.m. these days. That’s true in the summer, but in the summer… Then the curfew should change by seasons. It should be different in the summer and winter. My mom told me I must be home before it got dark so I hated the winter. I liked the summer. How about that? Before it gets dark. That’s all right. Take it. Take it. (Really?) It’s too cold in the winter anyway. Just take it. Just say okay. She says okay. (So excited) Don’t call her until the moon rises. No. Sometimes the moon and the sun are both up. There are days like that. Is there anything you want from your mother? Since you are here today? You drink every day. Please drink moderately. How much does she drink? Two pitchers of beer. 3 liters of beer? 3 liters? She drinks 3 liters of beer every day? She only drinks beer? Not soju? She doesn’t drink much soju. Two bottles? Two bottles of soju isn’t much? She either drinks 2 bottles of soju or 3 liters of beer? Every day? Do you drink a lot, Mrs. Wi? I do after I fix their dinner. But I don’t have any drinking habits. Is there a reason why you don’t like your mom drinking after work? Her mood changes a lot after she drinks. She gives compliments and then apologizes. That’s a drinking habit. You do have drinking habits. Tell her what you want from her. Please extend my curfew. Drink moderately. And don’t take away my phone. Are you ordering your mom? You should try to be more polite. (Her second attempt) I’ll try to behave well to win your trust. Please extend my curfew. Drink moderately. Please don’t take away my phone. You love your mom, right? Yes. You love her? Yes. (The answer doesn’t seem sincere) Please tell her that you love her. I love you, mom. (Once more with sincerity) (She did her best) (Please don’t argue anymore) Our guests will vote first. Yang Sehyeong. I think it’s a concern because when she graduates from high school and she’s free to do whatever she wants I am afraid that she won’t love her mother anymore. I think it’s a concern, too. I think it’s a concern, too. I think it’s a concern, too. I have two younger sisters. When I was in middle school, I had a hard time because of the responsibility I had. My parents told me that if I don’t behave well, my sisters won’t turn out well either. As the eldest daughter. Instead, my parents let me do whatever I want. I feel so bad for her. She must be so heartbroken. Why don’t you hold her hand? – She’s like a sister. / – You’re about the same age. She doesn’t seem happy about it. If you think it’s a concern, please press the button. (What does the audience think?) 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Please stop. Please say a word to your daughter. Sujin, come home before it gets dark. Play safely when you’re with your friends. Make me be able to trust you. Then I will. – I love you, Sujin. / – Have faith in her first! Let’s see how many votes they got. The previous story got 124 votes. 157. 137? 157. (They got 157 votes) “Real Korean.”
