I am not sure I understand the question. You want to be more generous? Then go for it. As long as you are using your own money or labor, nothing wrong with that. We don't have to agree with our parents on everything.

If you are asking for your parents to be more generous, then you are being out of line. It is up to them to choose their own level of generosity that they wish to do.

You can praise the generosity of your parents, but coercion isn't a good idea.

Thank you the only problem is that they gave me money enough to buy whatever i want, i dont work in a bussines but i work for them in the thinks they want in their own works for free and they provide the rest (food, house, money) so i dont know if it is valid to use that money, maybe it is good to work for them in generosity and also work with the other paramis, what do you think?

Thank you may im not confused anymore, may you have a prosperous new year
