Your resentment against your parents is not towards them but towards yourself. It results from the idea that your current unsatisfactory situation is due to your parents. You are blaming your parents for what you are. If you attribute what you are to your parents, why don’t you think instead that your current situation is less poor, or less disadvantageous than it could otherwise have been thanks to your parents?
Buddhist teaching is that everything is neutral and that whether it is advantageous or disadvantageous depends on how you see it. In other words, what is more important than whatever situation you are in now, is how you accept it. It is up to you whether you will keep detesting them or not.
