Parents make all what they can for theirs kids, try to offer the best what they can, and in special a good education! Are you greatful to your parents for what they offer to you? You try to make same for your kids, or you think that can do much more as your parents offer to you?

Yup, my parents had done the best they could for me. We were very poor, and my dad had to take care of us (3 kids) plus my grandparents, and sometimes my uncles turned to him for financial help as well. Anyway, my siblings and I went through tertiary education (college/university). I am grateful to my parents not only for the academic education, but the training at home - our philosophy and upbringing. I used to think that they were very strict, but now that I'm older, I think that they did it for our good. I'm not so sure if I could do just as good for my own kids!

Do you think your parents gave you the best education? Hello Marianna, I think that my parents did the best that they were able to do. They had a lot of children and while there were so many of us, I can honestly say that there was never a dull minute in the household. I do find myself wishing that perhaps we could have had a little bit more on the material side but then again I believe that we got just what God wanted us to have. If everything had of been given to us, we'd have never learned the value of hard work. The things that we have now in life. Most of us realize that we must work hard in order to get it and also have good values. I will try to do the same for my own children but it's a different time period that we are living in and children are not so happy with the bare minimum anymore. If you give one of them an apple they will look at you like you are crazy nowadays but back when I was growing up a kid was happy to get an apple or orange or even a quarter. All we can do is our best and still some kids will never be happy with it. So I'd just like to say to whoever will read this comment, simply do your best and don't worry about the rest. Happy mylot.

Hello there, yes i think that my parents give me the best education , in special my grandparents, they were with me all time when i were kid. I will keep my best memory about them. About my kids, yes, i give as much as i can, and i try don t repeat my parents mistakes with me, who was very strictly, and sometimes kill my personality, my kids have a good education, but not very strictly, i let them to have own personality, with some rules of course.

Yes, my parents gave me the best education. I'm a remote village in the north Guang Dong, China. At my home town, a small number of people can go to college for higher education. I'm the only one in my village, they are best parents in the world, I'll never let them down

AGREE! PArents do everything to give their children one good education. It's a pity children sometimes forget how difficult it is for parents to provide them with one good education. YES, I'm thankful for what they gave me and I'm planning to pay them back, by heart. =)
