its strange how with your family there is an unconditional love. but does that sometimes make us feel obligated to love them? i love my parents so much but there are so many times when i feel like i hate them too. but i guess hate is a strong word. i love my parents so so much, so much that i would die for them no matter wat! there is nothing i wouldnt do to save my parents from pain. it hurts to know that in most cases our parents die before us. but i know that they are watching us in heaven. How much do you love your parents?

i love my parents with all of me. without them, i wouldnt be here in this world. they have given me the love and care that i needed. they molded me into what i am now and eveyrthing what i have, i owe it from them. they never get tired of loving me, my siblings as well. they always rock on! they are my true friends indeed..

I love my parents very much. I can say that I am most lucky to have them as my parents. They are very supportive in all my endeavors and never did I feel that I was alone in any of the presonal battles that I fought because of their presence. They gave me almost everything that a daughter would wish for. They discipline me at times of course, but they have a unique way of doing so. They are efficient in this role that I fear I cannot even par with them when the time comes that I am to be a parent too.

Parentns! They not only brought us on this beautful plannet but with utmost care they grow us and give best affordable to them or sometimes beyond that.So it is our prime duty to take care in their old age.One more thing, parents are also human beings.they may do mistake, don't hate them, but just leave them aside.In our culture it is said"Matrapitra(parents)devo(god)bhav"--parents have given first position before god.We do love them with this spirit.

I love my parents a whole lot. They can't give me material things and stuff, but they are totally supportive of what I want to do with my life and their parents weren't like that. I am going to give them everything, because that's what they wanted to give my sister and I. We had a lot when we were younger though, there were some good times growing up. They are my heros.

i love my parents more than anything. But i don't always respect my dad. I think there is a big difference. Having lost respect for him has also made me feel like I love him less. Because love and respect go hand in hand. But I know with a doubt that I would die for him an instant. That is called unconditional love.

i love my parents so much. i will not be in this kind of life without them! they raise me, sacrificing just to provide what i need and what i want. they sent me to school just to have a formal education.

I love my mother unconditionally. She has done some things that were hurtful and downright wrong, and yes there were times where I felt I "hated" her. But becoming a mother myself and seeing some of the things that she has gone through, we have become close.

I'd LOVE to say I love my parents ALL of the time. I'd be lying. But our parents are really hard to please. In fact they are IMPOSSIBLE to please. They dont care for us most of the time. Pick fights with us and dont care to be involved. Dont pay attention to their mistakes. What I hate more than them being bad parents is the fact they wouldnt ever acknowledge they had a problem. Instead they go on living. My mom is so bitter is scares me. She holds grudges for years and years and wont stop bringing things up. Do I love them? YES! All of the time? No! But MOST Of the time. My parents dont have unconditional love for us its conditional. Only God has unconditional love I have found. In what I dont find in my parents I look to God for. Because God is THEE perfect parents. I know my earthly ones arent perfect sure but sometimes I wish at least they would try and stop blaming us kids for things that they cause half of the time. Save some heart ache for us all!

I'll try to do anything I can for them, I know if one day we'll faced a disaster I believe in my whole heart that I'll risk even my heart if that's what needed for them to stay alive. It's not because of obligatory thingy to love them, I love them because I love them. because tehre exist this link in our heart that can't be explained. as one had said above that she/he can't love her dad, this is why I say this loving relation is unexplaines.. it's beyong the relationship between parents and children, it's an unexplained link of our heart. I love them with all my heart.

I really really love my parents. They are always there for me, even when I'm not there for them, and although I usually take them for granted, I'm trying not to do that anymore.

I love them very very much! I don't think I could be the person that I am today whith out their love and care. I love them with all mz heart and I'm hardly say this for them. I think I should tell them more often how much I love them and how much I am grateful for them!

well, i think no sons or daughters would not say that theylove their parents. there are few things that needs to be nourished, and loving your oparents means no exception.

Really, I admire my parents. We used to have such a tough time before! My parents are all villagers so they have to do everything to move to a city. Life is so hard to them, to take care the 2 of us. But they make it, they do it all by themselves. Although they yell at me sometimes, i still love them sooooooooo muchh

Parents are like god for me.no one can take their palce in my life.i love them the most,i like them the most, i miss them a lot. This is for the simple reason that they are the the one who have teached you to walk,talk,eat,urinate,etc,etc,.they are the one to whom you tell your most of the problems and who try their best to solve them and hepl getting you out of the trouble. REALLY NO ONE CAN REPLACE THEM.

It is true that we love our parents and grandparents. When we were born they were the ones who took care of us, fed us and educate us. I dont feel that loving them is an obligation. Loving them comes so naturally and our attachment to them is so great. I miss my grandpa. Maybe because when he had a stroke, my parents and our family took care of him because, he was paralized . Maybe being able to serve him makes us love him more, and today i miss him.
