Your parents have their opinion. Your opinion and your parents' opinion are in conflict, so you have a problem. If you make your opinion disappear, then there will be no problem. That is Zen. Then your mind will be very wide and can take care of your parents' opinion. But if you keep your opinion, you cannot take care of your parents' ideas. When your opinion disappears, your mind will be clear like space, and you can digest any idea, any opinion.
