  • I don't think my kids owe me anything but respect for making the sacrifices necessary to give them the best possible life. I certainly don't think they owe me a certain lifestyle or the right to control their life and dreams. They didn't ask to be parents, we decided that for them.

  • my children do not owe me anything except respect, and to obey me until 18.. children should be allowed to do what makes them happy but it is good for parents to help them find it & go for it
