That's an entirely Western way of thinking. In many cultures, perhaps most cultures around the world, the children, especially the oldest sons, are EXPECTED to take care of their parents when they reach adulthood and start making money (or taking care of the farm, or whatever).
The "I didn't ask to be born" argument is childish. Many people believe that you OWE your parents for sacrificing their lives so that you could have yours.
