    At some point the image children have of their parents bumps into reality, their imperfections put in a stark and unforgiving light.

That is always a tough realization, and even more so if your parents didn't really handle the transition of their kids growing up into adults. I don't know your exact circumstances, but I'm sorry it is what it is. I'm sure that, when the time comes, you'll know in your heart what to do even if it's hard.
