Do children owe their parents something?

Habits, behaviour or the general appearance are results of the parent´s breeding. In the growing of their children, parents prepare children for their later life. The give them security, love and a high level of advertence. But is it the parent´s duty to care about their offspring? They spend a lot of money for toys, food or other things. So could parents owe something back?

Of course! In my opinion it is also the duty of children to give something back. Mostly little things are enough to delight parents. If parents get old they need more and more the help of other persons. Their children should be the first address, to get help. The relation between parents and children is very important, so I would say, that both side´s have to care for each other and a kind of addiction to owe each other something is given.

Probably in every teenager-life there are some moments where you have the feeling that there is nothing that holds you on living with your parents anymore. It is a difficult question to answer whether a child owes his or her parents anything – either money or justify.

They bring you up, they care for you – parents. There is a time in life when children ask themselves wether they owe their parents something or not. Just as one of the characters of the novel “A long way down”. Jess in contrast to many people feels absolutely not tied to hers: “I don’t owe Mum and Dad anything. ” She gives many reasons for this, whereas she reflects on her relation to her parents but also includes her thoughts on what her sister Jen could have felt, as she rather feels tied and related to her inspite of their differences.

On the page 143, Jess said that she “did not owe mum and dad anything”. And this statement gives us a lot of information to think about. The question is for what reason, we , children, owe our parents so much? Maybe it is only because they gave us possibility to live and enjoy this life? Maybe a lot of people think so, but I do not. I do not speak about respect. Respect is a little bit other.

Do kids owe their parents anything or nothing?

First of all Parents have to prepare their children for their later life. They should educate them and teach them how to behave in public and in life generally. Also they should give them love and security. And if they do it in a right way and if the children feels good and comfortable, I think the kids owe a lot to their parents because they bring them on a good way for their later life.

Children often say, that they don´t owe their parents anything. Jess has the same opinion, because she thinks that her parents haven´t done anything for her. Now I want to comment this statement on my own point of view.

I want to comment Jess’ statement “Anyway, I don’t owe mum and dad anything.”, from my own point of view. Many children think that they don’t owe their parents anything, when they are eighteen, because they are adult and can do everything that they want to do. (more…)

Parents bring their children up, feed them and support them in every situation. They earn money just to make a good future possible for them. But does that mean that the children owe their parents anything? (more…)

I want to comment the statement of Jess: “Anyway, I don’t owe mum and dad anything”, from a more general point of view. Because many young kids are thinking that they do not owe their parents something and also do not respect them. (more…)

Many people think that parents should give their children nearly everything. But from my point of view children also should give something back. (more…)
