I see this all of the time. Kids that feel they haven't met their parent's expectations and let them down. Parents that feel their childen haven't met their expectations and let them down. People that tell children that their parents don't owe them anything and they should grow up and move out and fend for themselves. Ok, I'm going to take a stand. I chose to have children, so I am responsible for them, it's my responsibility to take care of them. My children did not choose to be born, so they owe me nothing. I'm curious to hear from people that think otherwise.
