I will give you an example of one of the problems that ever aired on Hello Counselor.
This issue was written and submitted by a 18-year-old teenager with the title "I Want to Breath". He explains in his story that he was often reprimanded by the people around him. His teacher always chide, that a school child should not be doing things like this. Although he only studying in school like a regular student. A girl whom he liked said to him 'You stink! Go away!'. Though he always bathe every day and night. One of his friends thought that he smokes. Even he never smoked.
All these problems occur because his father, a heavy smoker. His father smoked two packs a day and sometimes even more. The whole house is filled with cigarette smoke. This makes the child difficult and stressful. He even try to throw cigarettes belonged to his father without his father's knowledge, and even he attached a picture titled 'No Smoking' in every corner of the house. He even begged and cried to his father to quit smoke, but there is no change.
If seen from the excerpts of stories above, the problems facing the child is quite serious. What is the feeling of his father after know all this? Whether his father can stop smoking? Are you curious how this problem end? If you're curious about the continuation of the story between the child and the father who is a heavy smoker, you can see the video below. You will see how the Hello Counselor's team help to overcome this problem.
I always enjoy watching this show, although now it is rarely, because of limited internet connection. But the show was able to entertain and make me laugh, sometimes I even cried when I saw how these problems can be overcome, especially when the issue concerns about the family itself.
