Today many aged parents are kept in old age homes where they are not happy. Some children do not give proper respect to their aged parents who have old age problems. Children don’t understand the value of their parents who struggled in their whole life for their children.

Are parents important to children?
Life without parental support can be a disaster. Parents are one of the most important people in the life of children. They sacrifice many things and reduce their own living cost for the future of their children and help them with every step of life.
Their guidance and support help the children to live the life they always wanted.
Parents are the first teachers of their children and play an important role in the mental, physical, social, financial and career development of children.
Teenage activities play a big role to direct life and career. This is the most tensioned period for the parents.
Parents are the real leader in children’s lives and they never show off this to children and never dominate their feelings. Blessings and guidance of parents help to choose good friends, the right career, and happiest living.
How to treat your parents?
Treat your parents with Love and Care. They need your presence more than presents. Love them with your heart and not with the mind. Loving them is a joy and a blessing and not your duty.
Respect their views, follow their guidelines, and communicate with them about your problems.
Life is a full circle. Tomorrow we shall also become old. The treatment we give to our parents will come back from our children because everything comes back to the source. Take care of your ageing parents.

Papa, Paul Anka
Every day my papa would work
To try to make ends meet
To see that we would eat
Keep those shoes upon my feet
Every night my papa would take me
Tuck me in my bed
Kiss me on my head
After all my prayers were said
And there were years
Of sadness and of tears
Through it all
Together we were strong
We were strong
The times were rough
But Papa he was tough
And, Mama, she stood beside him all along
Growing up with them was easy
Time just flew on by
The years began to fly
They aged, but so did I
I could tell
Mama wasn’t well
And Papa knew and deep down so did she
So did she
And when she died
Papa broke down and cried
And all he could say was: “God, why her? Take me!”
Every day he sat there sleeping in a rocking chair
He never went upstairs
Because she wasn’t there
Then one day my Papa said,
“Son, I’m proud of how you’ve grown”
He said: “Go make it on your own.
And don’t worry! I’m O.K. alone.”
He said: “There are things you must do; places you must see!”
His eyes were sad as he…
As he said goodbye to me
Every time, I kiss my children,
Papa’s words ring true
He said: “Your children. They live through you.
And they’ll grow. They’ll leave you, too”
I remember every word my Papa used to say
I kiss my kids and I pray
That they’ll think, think of me, that way
Always talk to parents, never ignore them for others. Feel proud of them.
There is nothing like Father and Mother, nothing can replace them. Look after them when they are alive, in return, your children will look after you. We know the real value of parents when we see their empty seat.
