Parents are at the age where they cann't take care of themselves, time to step up for kids.

Remember : Drinking water in girls house after marraige was considered as a sin, but things have changed.

Things have have changed,really? so does it matter if parents who seem help in old stay with daughter or son?

Does matter, cool? how about you wife's folks stay with yaa or your mom stays at ur sister's. all cool??

Question raised by Sourav1 - "I would like to bring in a much needed perspective by posing this question, "Would you expect your children to take care of you when you are old?""

I think people dont have time to care their parents....thats why Oldage homes are increasing....i think our parents need our support,care and love at their oldage....but we cant blame a particuler person or incidents..all are strugling to live...or running in busy life but love them give attention,love n care thats very importent ,its can happen everyone cos first half of our lives is ruined by our parents, and the second half (we expect) by our children.

No matter how old a mother n father is, i love them..and Age does not protect you from love...

Age is something that doesn't matter, unless you are a cheese-Bille bruke

Yes Childrens are the one to take up responsibility..no matter what..

Living with Son is not at all a problem... Son should be proud..coz what he is now is becoz of his parents...
he should not forget how much they have done to you.
No matter what your family is rich or poor. coz moslty they feel what they did we were millionare and we were smart enough to reach this position..but dont forget every mother either rich or poor has to go through 9 months(approx.)to give you birth..

so for that son can never repay even he/she takes care for 100 years also..

I personally feel that, as far as possible, no adult should be financially dependent on another. It a practical solution to cover all contingencies LOL and minimize hurt feelings. However, I realize, it is not possible always, and a compromise is due from both parties. Sometimes the compromise might mean one party doing more than the other - like terminally ill parents, or for that matter, children. Whereas it would be rather difficult for a parent to forsake one's children, the kids sometimes are not quite attached to give adequate attention. Bad, but in today's hectic and demanding life, I am hesitant to put the blame squarely on this party unless it is a flagrant display of apathy. One more thing - it sure helps to have siblings!!!

this post reminds me of Bahgban..
anyways i dont think theres anything wrong with a daugther helping here parents in there old age.infact i always tell my parents that later in life they have to live with me no matter how much they want to say with my brothers, i dont get the principle of a girl becoming parai after marriage, i would never leave my parents alone in there old age no matter how un girly or un cultured it is of me. we are today wat we are becouse of our parents, you know how they say " they helped us in our first steps we have to help them in there last steps"
there is no greater honor in the world then to serve you parents and your family
