As your parents get older, it becomes your responsibility to start returning the care they gave you all your life, Rabbi Shmuley says.
There is no greater way to show your appreciation and gratitude than by taking care of them as they grow old, he says. "It is family that has to take care of family."
Rules for Taking Care of Parents:
"Honoring our parents is in the Ten Commandments because it teaches us the value of supreme gratitude. Therefore, each of us should make the effort to give our parents the same care they gave us."
