All I can say is that if my parents had done that, I'd have told them NOT to bother me once I got done since they sabotaged me. It's the same as people who tormented you in high school buddying up to you after you've become famous or rich. Don't have your hand out when you tried to ruin someone else's life & made it that much harder for a person to get ahead. That earns you a big "Go to Hell."
Now if your parents would help you but can't, that's different. Then you owe it to them to give them "props" if they've been decent to you & tried to help in other ways.
