The people in your life who either:
A) Have the power to completely ruin you and your self esteem. They make you feel like everything is your fault, and you're worthless... OR...

B) The people in your life who love you unconditionally and make you feel like you can do no wrong. They are the ultimate supporter and friend.
With parents you're basically playing a lottery game you consistently have tickets to that you've never purchased. What you grow up with shapes you... but how you handle it defines you. Choose wisely

There are 2 types:

(1: People who care about you and raised you and love you, married to bring you to this world.

(2: Fucking assholes that manage to completely ruin your childhood and teenage years and make sure that you lived a life worse than them, support the government to throw you in that weird ass prison called School, and don't give a fuck about what you feel. And use that excuse of "authority" to make you shut up to tell you that you'll thank them when you grow up but in reality you'll only just thank the lord that you got away from them.
Scenario 1:

Child: Mommy I forgot to do my homework.

Parent: You're grounded for 3 weeks!

Child: But mom-

Parent: 4 weeks!

Scenario 2:

Teenager: Parents, can I go to the party?

Parents: No. Go to your room!

Scenario 3:

Teenager: *Playing on Xbox/PC*

Parents: What the fuck are you doing!? Get up your ass and go help your sister!

Teenager: Can I do this later?

Parent: No! *Smashes his device*

Teenager: But I paid for this!

Parent: Shut up! I'm the parent here!

1.) those who, because they gave birth to you, claim to have complete control over your life, personality, friends, clothing, and any other specifics that define you as an individual.

2.) the people that want to mold you exactally after their wonderful selves, and then resent you when you aren't what they expected.

3.) the people who other conceited, ignorant adults tell you that you will someday appreciate, but in reality, you look back and pray to god you don't turn into them.

4.) instigators of the breakfast club syndrome.
it never occurs to parents that it doesn't take a genius to get knocked up.

The only thing stopping you from living life and learning from your mistakes. They take away your freedom for no reason and never let you do anything fun. They're nosy too so you have to keep a billion secrets from them.
