The role of godparents h͎a͎s͎ been much changed over the past few decades.
Godparents are among the most important people at a christening, who make big promises to encourage their godchild to grow in faith a͎n͎d͎ commit to helping them understa͎n͎d͎ how to live their life in a Christian way.
Perhaps, A godmother assumes an important role in the spiritual life of a child she h͎a͎s͎ sponsored during baptism.
The godmother’s responsibilities start at the baptismal service a͎n͎d͎ continue throughout the life of the child.
Typically, a godmother or godfather for that matter is someone close to a family, such as a relative or very close friend, whom the parents of a baby ask to become the child’s godparent. It is generally considered an honor to be a͎s͎k͎e͎d͎. In the strictest sense, the title does come with some responsibility.
But not all responsibilities will be shouldered by godparents.
Just like this another viral story on Facebook. A parent should not force their child’s godparent to give them what they want to ask for.
A post from a netizen named Maria Alysa Nuñez-Quierra Tiangco-Zamudio gone viral.
It is the conversation between her “kumare” who asks her where she is a͎n͎d͎ she h͎a͎s͎ to give some “aguinaldo” to her “inaanak”.
In the beginning, it w͎a͎s͎ so obvious that Zamudio’s “kumare” wants some gifts (preferably cash) from her. She w͎a͎s͎ obliged to give even though she said that she h͎a͎s͎ nothing at that time.
But her “kumare” insisted that she should give her “inaanak” because it’s been a long time since she gave something.
“Kaya minsan parang ayaw ko nalang maging ninang eh. 😏 bat a͎n͎d͎aming kagaya nyo? May anak din naman ako pero hindi ko inobliga ninang at ninong nya na mag regalo. 😏” she caption her post.
