For years and years your parents showered you with gifts, love, and attention. Think about the dedication it took day after day to keep feeding you and watching to make sure you didn’t pull anything onto your head. Yeah, they did that, and you just wanted more and more. Not that you need to feel bad about it or anything. But now that you’re grown up you should acknowledge all that effort and perseverance, and naturally you should do it with material goods. Maybe they were insane for taking on that job in the first place, but they did it out of love. And probably a sense of moral and legal obligation. Either way, you’re still alive. Show them how much you appreciate that.
