Now when the life expectancy is increasing and sometimes one has to look after the parents till one is old oneself, or we can say for long time its not unusual to get fed up..because when children take long time in getting settled or getting jobs, parents also ridicule them, scold them and call names..but since they are parents they dont offend anyone, but children disrespecting their parents offend many's sensibilities because our society favours the old.and it is not good also..
So what is the solution.....
First thing as soon as we start earning we must ear mark a small amount aside every month for the parents, it will come handy to those who feel financially constrained.
Get your parents health insurance at an early age, its very helpful.
Whether you live with them or not, provide them with all the basic requirements..healthy fresh food, neat clothes to wear and a safe roof over their head,, but draw a line, dont let them interfere with your life.You live your life they way you want to , and then you will never get frustrated with parents.
Spend some time (regularly)with them.talking about something which is pleasant to them or they like..rest of the time you spend as you like .
If you have parents who are semi invalid,.and you need to go out and have a good social life,then keep a help with them, you may economise somewhere else but not here.and enjoy without a guilt..
Never ever be disrespectful to them or let your spouse be....
If they are capable, encourage them to have their own circle and help them in maintaining that, dont grudge it..
Last but not the least.....its our duty and a great debt of our parents and we must not hesitate in repaying that..its upto us whether we make it a burden or joy.
