18 Examples That Prove the Parent-Child Bond Grows Stronger Over the Years

We may be adults now, with responsibilities even to our own family, but to our parents, we will always be their “babies.” And they show this every time they give us a special gift, call us on the phone, or when they simply bake our favorite cookies for us to take to work.

The bond between parents and children is made of love, and that’s what makes it so special. At Bright Side, we found several examples of this on the net. We want to share them with you so that your heart will be as touched as ours.

1. “Gave mom a blanket made from dad’s shirts. This is her first Xmas without him since he passed in Jan 2021.”

2. “Made a life-size Onix out of snow with my mom.”
