Hi, In my this discussion I would like to raise a question why, we are leaving our parents in isolation? In today's scenario we are living a fast life. Our parents belongs to a era which was not too speedy & hectic, they are not in a position to match up with our speedy life. many of us are leaving their parents in isolation & moving ahead in life without caring what their parents are doing. In my views its a breach of moral values & disrespect of our parents ,we should keep caring our parents in any situation. what do you think people leaving their parents in isolation by giving reason of hectic/modern life is justified or else its a shame for them. Thanks Mahatav Kumar

Hi ! I can never afford to leave my mom if she will turn very old already. Though i am not her favorite still i will love and care for her . Leaving our parents is a big insult to our moral and spiritual values . Parents almost gave even their life to us to show how big is their love to us. Forever we are indebted , that's why in our little own ways we need to pay back though we are not obligated .

Dear, I appreciate your views, but you said you are not favorite of your mother, but in my life I encountered some experiences & found that sometimes we misunderstood our parents like they don't like us. but in reality whatever & however their children are they always treat equally there children by heart. May be sometimes they seems harsh or not understanding us but they can never think any bad about us because we are their children & they love us whether they show their love or not. and friend you have truly said we are forever indebted to our parents for care & love they have given to us. We can only do one thing i.e. keep caring & loving them. Thanks mahatav

My parents decided to move to Florida back in 2001 before that happened we all lived in New York and were close by. I felt bad but I couldn't stop them from moving. If they had never left NY I would still be there. However, I live in Puerto Rico now and at this time they are managing well. My dad is still driving and they are able to maintain a pretty good lifestyle. I wish they lived nearby so I could take care of them, however they are the ones who decided to leave us.

Dear, your feelings are pure for your parents.For caring your parents, you have not to actually stay with your parents, but you have to always remember them by your heart & contact them or visit them when you have time, help them when they need. Believe me, they never show but your's surprise call or a surprise visit will fill them with a delightful happiness. our parents only needs our love/care, never let them in isolation. Thanks mahatav

i guess this is a matter of upbringing and societal values. in certain countries, children up and go at the age of 18 without a care. in other countries, parents and children stay together under one roof throughout their whole life. i am lucky to have my own place that is big enough for my parents to live with me. i got this place a few years back and got my parents to move in with me. they have been providing me with a shelter for the earlier stage of my life and i love the opportunity to do the same for them. it's not easy living with elderly folks and we do have our occasional squabbles. then again, we are family and we work out our differences in our own quirky way. i guess what goes around comes around. when these people grow old, they will understand how their parents felt when they left them behind...

Yes, that is quite a sad truth. because of technology rapidly changing, some people, especially the elderly are being left behind.. I do try to teach my mom to use the computer, but she doesn't want to learn. She wants an ipad, she says- so she won't need to use a mouse.
