A bond that a child has with their parents can never be match. The love a parent gives their child is priceless. But I believe that children, once grown up, owe nothing to the parents who raised them. I say this because even animals, which lack reason, provide love to their child without a need of repayment. I, also, have a sense of experience raising my brothers and sisters and can say they owe me nothing. Finally, a parent should provide care, love, and protection of harm for their child. If the parents do not raise their child with care, love, and protection then its up to the child to decide whether he or she will raise their child in a similar matter or not. Which can influence a child decision to give something back to their parents. I will begin by looking into the animal kingdom. Although, we as human are far superior to animals because of our reasoning, I believe that in seeing how animals raise their young can provide an example on why children should not owe anything to their parents. Every summer morning we are awoken to the sounds of birds and we wish that they would be quiet, but these birds provide a perfect example on why children owe nothing to their parents. When a bird is born the mother finds them food, provides them shelter, and gives the baby bird a sense of protection. Once old enough the bird attempts to fly from its nest. If the baby bird falls down the mother is right there to pick it back up. But, unfortunately, there comes a time when one day the mother bird returns and the once baby bird flies away to cares for its self. The bird’s mother may never see its bird again. So, who pays the bird for all the care the bird gave to the baby? No one. If a bird does not expect anything from their birds then hum... ... middle of paper ... ...e of joy we get from a child, or little brother, is so great that as a parent, one should in fact owe them our love, care and protection. In fact even that might not be enough, a child’s happiness is priceless. That’s why parents, and older brother, say that that the child means the world to them. In conclusion, a grown child owes their parents who raised them nothing because; if an animal does not expect anything in return for care for their babies then we shouldn’t ether. I have experience in raising my brothers and sisters and wouldn’t ask for anything in return. Finally, a parent owes their child care, love, and protection from harm, in order for their child to decide whether they owe their parents anything. For these reasons I believe that a child does not owe anything to their parents but may give some thing in return out of their own willingness and love.
