If your financial is good, take good care of your parents' welfare. Fulfill their basic needs according to your financial status.

To let your parents happy, you do not have to be a great person in this world. Always visit your parents if you do not live with them. Do not abandon or leave your parents alone as they need people to talk to. Love your parents but do not betray them.

Never say bad things towards your parents as this will hurt their feeling.
