There are parents who are obligating their son/daughters to work right after they finish their study, for it is because the son/daughters must have to pay back all the efforts that their parents were doing when they were studying. Do you agree with that kind of tradition?

I have to say that I have been so fortunate having a parent that is so loveable, understanding and caring. They stood by me thru my ups and downs. When I started working, they never even asked even a single centavo from me. Even if I feel that they are in need of money, they won't ask anything from me but as a son, I really can feel their need and I just offer what i have in return to what htey have done to me.

Hi advokatku! Thank you for the respond. Yes no any parants who wish their children to pay all expenses they had spent raising them. But i guess it always depends on the situation. Many families nowadays, especially in the low-class area have been obligating their child to work in return for their parent's effort and expenses.

i think only if the parents need the money back. ya they payed for it, but the kid did all the work and stuck to it. if the kids drops out then i definately think they should pay the parents back for wasting it but if they dont drop out then there was no waste =]
