The majority of the people who posted a definition about Parents basically wrote "IDIOTS WHO RUIN OUR LIVES!!!1". Are you fucking kidding me. Something you idiots are not mature enough to understand: appreciation. You idiots have a computer. A house. A bed. Clothes. Food. Who gave you those things? Your parents. Believe it or not, they love you. And no, they do not 'pretend' to love you. I bet your asses that when your parents die, you will cry and cry and cry and realize how disrespectful how you were to them.
Sure your parents can be unfair and idiots at times, but everyone can be. There is no one in this world that is completely perfect. So please, grow up a bit more and start to realize the importance of your parents.
Parents will be parents.

People that teens love to whine about, even though they are probably just normal people and the teenagers are whiners. Seriously, they should be glad that the parents have cars and jobs, have money, never let the kids go hungry, give a shit about their kids, worry about them, and love them. My parents were the opposite, and I always hide it when I'm around people, but whneever I hear people whine about their privileged lives and nice parents I want to rip my hair out.

Parents can sometimes abuse their role, and ruin their children's lives, i.e doing selfish things like suicide attempts and taking their children out of school. These are the really bad type of parents, because not only do they not care about the kid, which is bad enough, they actually strive to make the teenager's life miserable.

The people who brought you into this world. They may suck at times but at least they love you, and if they don't I can't help you there my freind. Be lucky you have parents or you would be on the street or and orphinarium, like I grew up in, until I was adopted by foster parents. So all you people that say parents suck ass and never do anything for you, SHUT THE FUCK UP AND STOP WHINING LITTLE CRYBABY BITCHES!. There's alot of children starving on the street, besides food, don't you think they want a home and someone that loves them?

Kid two: I don't have a dad.

Kid one: What about your mom? Couldn't she get it for you?

Kid two: My mom never got me anything exept for this cool watch, she got it at wal-mart.

Kid one: Well cyaz, I'm gonna go play my new xbox 360.

Oh for fucks sake. "parents ruins are lives." "they are fucking idiots that ruins kids lives." Let me ask you this, did they really ruin your life? I didn't think so. Parents will be parents and believe or not, they love you. They will be asses at times and will be your best friend at times. They will scold you like hell at times and they will be proud of you at times. My parents are pretty strict, and i hated them sometimes. But then i realized how much they have supported me, and am glad that they are strict. Love your parents.
Idiot - "OMG I HATE MY PARENTS THEY RUINED MY LIFE I HATE THEM."
Normal person - "What did they do to you?"
Idiot - "They grounded me for skipping school for 4 weeks and for raping my teacher. LIKE WTF ITS OBVIOUS THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO RUIN MY LIFE."
Normal person - "Goodbye."
