That's a hard one to answer, because I love them both dearly. However, I think children usually need us more. Just like everything in life. It's a juggling act and you need a balance.
However, if the parents were not living their life right or whatever, then I would protect my child from that while still trying to protect the parents.
That question I have had to face myself. But I think it really depends on their health and age. What I have do is balance both. My parents started late in life and are 41 years older than me. However my children are still young all under the age of 10. Since my mom past away I have had to take care of my dad more. I take care of my dad during the day while my children are in school so I can devote my attention to everyone. My dad will call me if he has an emergency when my kids are out of school.
