When raising teenagers, it sometimes feel like they don't appreciate anything their parents do for them. A recent TikTok trend is proving otherwise.

Using a sound clipped from the song "Slipping Through My Fingers" from the "Mamma Mia" movie soundtrack and hashtags like #MakeMomEpic and #BestDadEver, teens and young adults are sharing sweet moments with their parents and grandparents.

The videos show example after example of unconditional love, and the results might leave you feeling a little — or maybe very — emotional.

There are adorable dads, like this adoptive dad on his daughter's wedding day ...
