>My parents can live their lives pretending that they haven't been neglectful, shitty people. Nothing in your post indicates that they were shitty people and neglected you. You only stated that you went to bad schools. You also mentioned that they gained some stability when you were 17. In other words, they struggled for 17 years to make ends meet, and as a result they could not offer you stellar education. You say that they were better parents to your young siblings than they were to you. How that is so, you don't say. Hard to judge your parents on the basis of that little information. You had many years to talk to them about this. From their reaction to your "outing", it's obvious you never did that. That's why the consensus is YTA. >this weird mission to make it all up to me So, what do you expect? All they can do is offering you something **now**. They can't go back. You seem to be determined to keep you grudge, no matter what they do or say. If that is so, so be it. Stay bitter. You have my blessing.

"YTA & honestly, as a single parent, your mindset is my nightmare. I work two jobs to get by. Unfortunately that doesn’t leave a lot of time for my daughter. I rely on friends & family to give her the attention she needs. I still spend one day a week giving her all my attention. I live in a terrible neighborhood with gun violence, but I own my home & can’t afford to move. If my daughter, once an adult, is told me she didn’t care that I tried my hardest bc it wasn’t good enough, I would be devastated. I cry almost every day bc I don’t feel good enough & I think she deserves better. Your parents are human." - A heartfelt struggle with parenthood ❤️
