18 Stories Proving That Some Parents Deserve a Monument

A famous quote by Oscar Wilde is, “The best way to make children good is to make them happy.” And that’s probably why our parents make so many sacrifices for us. For example, they push themselves to their limits so that we can be on a sports team or play an instrument. Thankfully, many of us grow up and come to the realization that they are real heroes that don’t expect anyone’s applause. We want to remind you that we should never take our parents for granted since they tend to do anything possible to give us everything.
