What Adult Children Want from Their Parents:

Old couple

To be there in our time of need

To be treated like a grown-up

To forgive the hurts we caused you

To not compare us with our siblings or your friend’s children

To not expect too much from us

To have faith in us and our abilities

To love us for whom we are today, not whom you wanted us to be

To not hold us responsible for your happiness

To express our feelings without being judged

To understand we have our own lives and obligations

To respect our spouse or significant other

To feel we made you proud
