1. [+143, -5] There's that old saying that one parent can take care of 10 children but 10 children cannot take care of one parent, and it's true

2. [+112, -3] But if the parents have money, your children will come find you even if you don't want them to!!

3. [+91, -4] I wonder what the survey results would be if you asked children whether they are entitled to inherit all owned by their parents??

4. [+24, -3] Those of us in our forties/fifties are dying right now... We're at an age where our children are at their most expensive to keep up with while we also have to take care of our aging parents..

5. [+19, -0] Honestly, now that I'm older, I'm a lot more comfortable just living by myself. Sure, it was fun raising them and brought me a lot of happiness, but it's a lot more uncomfortable having to live in a house with grown adults~

6. [+19, -0] I know it's the right thing to do, but I honestly don't think I can do it;;;

7. [+18, -3] I think we have trouble with saying we'd take care of our parents with confidence because life is so tough for us as it is. We're too scared to even have kids of our own.. and when those kids grow up, they won't be able to take care of me either, so why would I waste all my time and money on raising a kid without securing my own retirement first and put myself at risk of having to work in old age? It all comes back to the question "What about MY life?"...

8. [+17, -1] I'm sure kids will take care of their parents for as long as they have money to take ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+16, -0] Parents need to cut back on inheritable assets and just spend it on taking care of themselves

10. [+15, -1] We live in a country where people can't even afford to have their own kids, why do you think we would be able to afford to take care of our parents?

11. [+11, -6] It's just the truth... You have to admit that living with your parents is difficult, especially if you have a partner of your own. You can't force that on them. When you start your own family, the majority aren't able to make room for their parents, too...

12. [+4, -2] Sorry but I can't even keep myself afloat.......
