    I am worried about the time where my parents won't be available to listen to my problems and u feel like this??? When your parents go to a better place, then u will feel the pain; TREAT THEM WITH RESPECT U PIG WHILST THEY ARE WITH U. A child who is allowed to be disrespectful to his parents will not have true respect for anyone.
    Respect is earned not given.Just being a parent does not automatically earn you respect.Its about what kind of parent you are.Anyone can father a child.And they don't go to a better place.Sorry.You shouldnt trivialise the meaning of death by pretending its something its not.Saying that you go to a better place robs death of its meaning and tragedy.

    Wow, have you read that back to yourself? you wouldnt be alive without your parents, show some respect
    That doesn't make any sense. Very lousy argument you've made if you're saying it to someone who, gee I don't know, doesn't wanna be alive. Why can't people process that there are *****y parents?? Would you say that to an abuse victim??

    This question very much depends on what your parents expect you to owe them. If they ask you to do things like giving them a lift somewhere or going shopping with them then you should do those things because they did those same things for you, and it isn't harming you in any way to do those things.

    However, if they are expecting you to do something that compromises your own rights and freedoms as a human being, e.g. forced marriage, forcing religion on you etc, then you are not obligated to owe them any of that because you aren't just their child. You are also a individual with your own life to live.

    Definitely not, but if you didn't want to be born in the first place, technically speaking, you shouldn't be alive right now eh?
    Well, with that argument, you're saying that literally nothing should exist, because nothing asks to be born, or created, you're argument makes no sense.

    Well it's not that we think our children owe us something well not me anyway. I remind the child, teenager or young adult when they are being rude and disrespectful that I do this for you as my child screw the law but because I am your parent. When a teenager and young adult acts like because your their parent they don't have to honour thy parents or show respect and responsibility and they have a bad attitude it can make u feel real crap even worse if they don't want to help around the home be mindful.

    I'm grateful only for what they did on top of the minimum required by law. It came with "sacrifices" on their side, but it was their life choice and it's clear that when you have a child you must adjust your life accordingly.

    You sound very Ungrateful at the same time usual behaviour for some. I will say this you will think differently when you have children of your own one day in the future at the moment ure not in parent mode. When your own children start to become young adults your going to be like ooh I get it until then hmmm

    Just one more thing we don't know how you were brought up and if you've had problems most teenagers young adults try to separate themselfs from their parents and we have all been there ourselfs.
