I tried to do this so many times, now I gave that up, I feel sad but I cannot do anything about it. They are not good at parenting.
Like Leonard at the Big Bang Theory, I too am over my mother’s not caring about me.

That is sad.
The big mistake that parents seem to make is that they don’t/can’t make sure the kids feels cared for regardless of how “good at” something they are.
But maybe we can “be the change we wish to see in the world.” Maybe I can care about my parents, regardless of the fact that they are “not good at” parenting. Why? Just because they’re trying, or they have pasts/circumstances/habits that get in their way, or just because they are people too. And my compassionate understanding may open up possibilities for me (e.g. when I noticed my mom’s insecurities that got in her way, it helped me see how those insecurities exist in me too.)
