Parents are the most precious gift of God for humans. Parents are the closest people that we have in our lives, whether we realize it or not. They love us not because we are smart, beautiful, successful or we have a good sense of humour, but just because we are their children. Everything else is fake, but parents are the most important people in our life. The term unconditional love is a wonderful way to think about a parent’s love for his/her child. It conjures up visions of limitless support, of advocacy, protection, absolute and beautiful love.
