    As in spending time with your Mother and Father as an adult? Well, I think that it's important to look after the people who raised you certainly. Many people seem to lose all respect for their parents as they get older, or do not have time to care for them etc. I can of course see how it is sometimes difficult to juggle everything in life, but it's important to do the best for your parents, just as your parents did their best for you.

    My father passed away several years ago. My mother lives 30 miles away but has chosen to cut me out of her life. She has always acted as if she had one child, which is my older brother. The answer is quite simple for me. However, I do have a busy life taking care of my husband, working full-time, and ensure my youngest son stays productive in life.
    My husband is twenty-eight years older than me. I do feel his two oldest children and the two nephews he raised do feel it is a burden to even check on him to see how he is doing.
    Few calls come, and no calls to say 'do you need a break?'. ' I'd be happy to stay with Dad for a few hours while you go to the store'.

    Parents will never be a burden for their children. But I do not know why todays generation act like this that their parents will be burden for them. Why today generation forget that these parents which become burden for them are the one who bring them in life. This is our parents who teach us, make us so much capable that we can survive in this world.

    In my opinion parents will never be burden for their children.

    I don't believe the majority of people have children in order to have someone bligated to them for life. Granted there are some people who make their children feel as though "they owe them" for having an orgasm that created life. Becoming a parent is a (choice). Taking care of one's child (they chose to have) is to be Expected. To do otherwise is Irresponsible! It's not some kind of debt a child has to repay!
    Personally I would not want anyone to do anything for me out of "obligation" or "guilt". Love and affection are not something to demand. These things are given "freely". Ideally the parent's "Golden Years" should be filled with enjoying the freedom to travel, spend time with their friends, and spoiling their grand children if they have them. Having expectations leads to frustration.

    Are mother and father burden to people who are busy with their lives? Were you a burden to them when they raised you to adulthood? Were you a burden to them when they fed and clothed and loved you unconditionally? I bet the majority of parents would say "absolutely not!"
    Just because you have a busy life, it doesn't mean that you can ignore your parents or feel that it is a burden to have them a part of your life. I would give anything to have my parents around right now. Although neither was a perfect parent and both had many problems during their lives, I would have never considered them a burden.
    My father died when I was eleven and in my small way, I helped take care of him during his three year battle with cancer. My mother passed away last year after a long difficult battle with COPD. My sisters and I often cared for her during her times of extreme pain and I was lucky enough to spend almost every moment with her during her last three weeks of life. Neither time did I feel as if my parents were "burdens." Instead, I felt it was a blessing to be able to spend any and all of this time with them....
    No one should have a life that is too busy to consider their parents (or their children, for that matter) a burden!
