1. They brought you into this world

Your parents are the reason you exist. Had it not been for them, you would not have had the life that you have.

2. They fed you

Right after you were born, it was your parents who made sure that you were well-fed. They ran after you to make you eat well and made sure that you never slept on an empty stomach.

3. They taught you how to walk

When you were moving on your fours, it was your parents who pushed you to walk on two legs. They held you when you fell down and motivated you to start again.

4. They taught you how to speak

A little child can barely speak coherently. Parents keep at it and try to make the child say something as simple as “Ma”. They worked hard to help you frame your first words.

As you were growing up, it was your parents who taught you life’s important values. They helped you differentiate between right and wrong. They are the ones who helped build your character.

We all hated our parents when they scolded us. But the fact is that a caring parent will scold you only to make you a better person.

7. They hugged you when you wanted them to

Every time you came back from school, they were there waiting for you and took you into their arms. When you felt scared, sad, or weak, they hugged you and made it all better.

8. They never forgot your birthday

Your best friends may forget to wish you on your birthday but not your parents. They always wished you well and celebrated the day when you came into their lives.

9. They made sure you slept well

They checked under the bed and in the cupboard to make sure there were no ghosts to haunt you. After you thought they had left, they came in to check again if you were sleeping well.

10. They took care of you when you got sick

You have been sick so many times in your life and it was your parents who took care of you, irrespective of how unwell you were.
