Hi,there,If my parents forget my birthday,I will certainly feel some upset.But I still want to say forgive this .They did't mean it.They forget it cause they are remembering many other things about you.And I want to say it's not so matter that your patents forget your birthday .Actually,your bithday are valid because at this day your mother give you life .That the most important you need to remember.By the way,I think parents birthday is much more important than ours .

hi my friend! is it like they're just joking you? if it's not well i think you must be really upset on that! well,sometimes our parents are old enough to remember things themselves. we just have to accept that fact sometimes. well my mother sometimes forgets the birthdate of us her daughters but sometimes she remembered it to the nearest date. you are one of the people who have parents who can't remember such things/dates. don't worry too much.okay? did you try to talk with your parents about this feeling of yours? maybe if you do,you'll know the reason yourself.

yeah, i try to accept this fact. not sometimes, but evertime. i never talk with them about it, but, when my brother's birthday, and they forgot again.. i talk to them about it, they apologize for their fault, and then ask me, when we were born? lol... yeah. it's like a joke, but then, they are forgot again...

maybe they're too old enough to remember things.but if i'm also in your position i'll also get upset.maybe their memory lessens when it comes to dates,there were just people who are like that.always forgot the important dates.my mother sometimes forgot our birthdays,specially how old are we now her children.sometimes she even forgot her own age.there are things that we really have to deal with.

Well this does not apply to me , perhaps set a alarm to remind them haha like on that day the happy birthday song would sound off laugh out loud.

If my parents forget to wish me on my birthday, I will surely get upset.Just like you said, they are the most important persons in my life too.I don't care if others wish me or not but I expect my family members to remember my birthday and I must say till today, they had never failed to wish me on my big day including my boy friend.He is always the first person to wish me "Happy Birthday". Now, let me get back to your situation.My friend,I can understand how bad you feel when your loved ones forget your special day as "Birthday".Parents usually remember their kids date of birth but there are few others who forget too which is exception.Either they are too busy caught up with work and forgot your birthday or maybe they are not good in remembering birthdays and anniversaries but that doesn't mean they don't love you or love you less my friend. There are no unimportant birthdays.You are precious to them. What you should know is they love you and will be always be there for you when you need them for anything and that you could count on them. Why don't you celebrate your birthday on your own? You can invite few friends - make your own yummy cake or remind the whole family your birthday is coming up and what you would love to have or you can ask them funny question like "Do you know what day it is today?" If your parents still look puzzled and no clue on their face then maybe it is time you should show them your birth certificate! By the way, when is your birthday?

No it would not happen unless my mom had memory problems. I would be very upset if this were to happen. bright and early in the morning i get a phone call waking me up to tell me happy birthday.
