Do you think your parents are proud of you?

Why do you think so? For me, I think they are really proud of me. I have no major contribution in the family that I can speak of, but I can honestly say that I have been a good daughter to them. Growing up, I have not given them the "headache" that most teenagers do at that time. Yes, they are proud of me, I finished my studies as parents wished for their children. How about you?

of course they proud of us, i think the pride of parents to their children is when they can to wishes of the parents is a filial piety. devotion from we do not need to materialize with a high achievement, but to provide the best for them will suffice. if we can make it more than that, then it is better.

yes, that is right. most parents, if not all, are really, really proud of their children. i also believe that the love of our parents are unconditional. that no matter what we do, they will still and always will love us.

Yeah, they are very proud of me. In their eyes, I'm a good daughter with many nice merits. I grow up without any serious problems and has always been a straight-A student at school. My parents have no worry about me. Now, I'm economically independent on them, which is good to them. They once said they're lucky to have a daughter like me.

I would like to think that they are proud of me. In fact, they have said that they are proud of the things that I have accomplished recently. Therefore, I would like to take my parents at their word. Give them the benefit of the doubt that they are not just saying that because I am their son, but rather that I have done something that is worthy of pride. Of course, I think that it is genuine. Because I have accomplished some things that are quite worthy of pride. I think that I have lived a life while not with ground breaking accomplishments, accomplishments that I worked hard with achieving. Therefore, it is going to be rather interesting to see what I can do and I hope that I can live up to whatever expectations that they have. Still, if I continue to work hard and try my best to excel, the battle is already halfway there.

I believe they are proud of me. I may not have accomplished many things in my life but I could say that my parents are glad that I was able to finish my studies. Have a nice day.

I had not thought of this whether my parents are proud of me or not. But frankly speaking, I don't think my parents would be proud of me at the moment. But I have promised myself, that they would be soon proud of me. I am working hard for that. I am working right now but my pay is not very good. I am thinking of a switch. Which would fetch me a decent pay. I am working on it. They have done very much for me till now and it is time for me to do for them. And I will do it very soon.

Yes I think my parents are proud of me. Throughout my existence I have never give them a headache and was once a straight student, during my college graduation I felt that they were proud of me until now that I am financially independent from them I know they are proud, and even more proud now that they will have their first grandchild from me.

Yes, i believe they are proud of me. Just like you, i have been a very good daughter to them, or at least they know i am... Anyways, yes i am a very good daughter to them and i never had failing marks on my grades when i was still studying, in fact i am always on top. I follow whatever they wanted me to do or think they wanted me to do. I finished my studies with no failing marks and have become a professional too. I think they are very proud of me because i have a professional degree already that my other siblings don't have.

I know that my mother is proud of me. In all the years that I've been her daughter I've done my best to never let her down. In addition to that, I've also tried to make sure that I do things to help her. Finally, I am the only one of her three children that is not only married and has children, but my husband and two children and myself are living on our own in a house that we were able to buy two and a half years ago. My brother is married with children and still lives under her roof and my sister is unmarried and lives with them.

I think my parents have always been proud of me, regardless of what I do...they really do believe in me and my capabilities, and that's what I think every single should do, because it really does make you feel good about yourself, and thus you will try to keep on improving. I love them from the bottom of my heart.

Yes my parents always proud of me. And they always motivate to doing something good in my life. I think everyone’s parents always proud of their children. Because every parent wants that their child always gets success in their life.

I don't think they are proud of me since they expect me to be more than what I am at present. I really couldn't blame them since all my childhood friends who live near our house are all established now. They went abroad and earned huge there. I am always compared since I was the one who finished my degree but not earning as much as my friends earn. But still, I am not leaving for the sake of money. I am not going anywhere.

I was not able to make my parents proud, because after graduating high school I have not got a job and now I'm in college. Hopefully, I can quickly finish my studies and obtain jobs that match my majors.

I didn't heard from the mouth of my parents that they are proud of me, my parents are not vocal but I know they are proud because as what you have said like you I grow as a good children. I finished my studies without hassle I mean they never burden for them because I studied with all my effort. I am a scholar from first year until I finished my college. 10 days after my graduation I started to work and 80% of my salary I sent them to sustain my siblings tuition fees. Until now I am still supporting them and all my siblings specially now when I am here working abroad.

When I was in my teen years, I never felt my parents were proud of me. But now that I am adult I can see it in their eyes, or sometimes I'd hear them telling other people my accomplishments, which makes me feel really really good.

Hell no! My dad already gave up on me. My parents look up to my sister more than me, they see me as a disappointment because I don't live the way they want me to live. But... I don't care. As long as I obtain what I want I'm okay. Plus I know my sisters lack brains. So when I obtain more than my sisters and abandon my parents. They'll regret not putting their faith in me.
