Thank you for your question. Your responsibility towards your parents is to make sure they have sustenance for the day and shelter. Beyond that there is no legal financial responsibility upon the children. As for them being unsatisfied with what you are providing them with, as long as you do not speak with them disrespectfully or act in a disrespectful way towards them, it is not upon you to provide them with more than your means.

May you always be successful.
