BDBD is Proverb 10:1

The parent-child relationship is the subject of either much joy or much grief. The dynamics between parent and child are greater than pollen in the swirling spring breeze. The actions of a child will affect a parent; age, location, society, and appearance does not deter this truth. The choices of a child are the cause of either joy or grief for a parent.

Which do I consider? How do I affect my parents or how do my children affect me? Both.

Looking toward the future is the most important thing to consider. Making wise decisions cannot change the past. However, they will affect the present and future of my parents and my children. Be wise today for the future sake of parents and children.
