This may seem like a debatable topic, but let me just quote answers from this wonderful Quora Q&A that I generally agree with:
Children do not owe anything to their parents, purely by virtue of the relationship of parenthood.
Any adult, who believes a child becomes indebted due to the act of raising that child, is ill-prepared to raise children. That parent will end up with a child who is resentful of the parent.
Nothing from parenthood itself. People choose to become parents because they want to be parents, and not in an effort to do the kids a favor. […] But of course parents deserve the same courtesy as every other human being: if they treat you well, they deserve to be treated well.
What if every cat in the world surrounded you and meowed at the same time? How loud would it be?
[…] it would be about 97dB. That’s something like the sound of a loud motorcycle passing right by you. Not deafening, but uncomfortably loud.
Interestingly you don’t even need all the cats in the world. After about 10,000 cats, they start getting too far away to matter.

I like being alone. I have control over my own shit. Therefore, in order to win me over, your presence has to feel better than my solitude. You’re not competing with another person, you are competing with my comfort zones.

We are not our failures – we are who we chose to become after those.
I couldn’t find the source for this. I just found it in my notes. Maybe it’s just a rephrasing of a popular quote. Maybe it just randomly came to me back then.
The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.

If your child is secretive and lacks trust, it might be because of your excessive irritability.
If your child often shows envy and jealousy, it might be because you compare her too often with someone else.
If a child is rude, it might be because they’re following the example of their parents or a family member.
If your child lies to you, it might be because you reacted too harshly to their previous mistake.
If your child doesn’t respect others, it might be because you tell her what to do without acknowledging her feelings.
