Unfortunately, I'm not a religious person. I don't believe that a set of rules will get me into heaven, nor do I go to church out of a sense of duty. I follow God's commands because I believe they are like a parent telling their child not to touch a hot iron or to not drink a bottle of drain cleaner. Which brings me to your parent analogy:
ahem Parents do not create their children. God makes them in mommies' tummies using a process you either already know about or will learn when you get older.
And no, no I would not. I know how hard it is to forgive my parents when they wrong me. But God is not my parents. I know from experience that he is not them. God is loving and merciful and kind, while my parents sometimes haven't been that way.
Do you believe that God has wronged you? If people are wronging you and saying they are doing it because God told them to do it, it has nothing to do with God, it has to do with them.
In view of that, I would like to roll with your parent analogy. We're the kids that want to drink the drain cleaner God tells us (like any good parent) not to drink. There's also not anything wrong with drain cleaner - when it's used to unclog drains, that is.
But we keep drinking the stuff, and every time we do God rushes us off to the hospital to save us. But you see, no matter how many times the parents medically intervene, eventually if you persist in drinking drain cleaner, you will die. Sin is like that - we cut ourselves off from the infinite sustaining power of God we need and decided to rebel against infinite power. But we live this insanity every day, and we don't realize just how deep it has a hold on us - until we try to fight it.
Worse, we've grown really crafty in our drain cleaner addiction. We hide it in our squeeze bottles, we buy more of it, we borrow it from our friends, we build entire corporations and governments to make sure everyone else is drinking drain cleaner too, therefore no one will question our right to drink poison, because they are doing it too! If you think that is in insane, sin is even more insane.
God is walking into that drain-cleaner drinking world and saying "Hey guys, anyone want some orange juice?"

"It tastes better, and it's actually good for you."
This is a chronological fallacy. When a particular truth is discovered has no bearing on whether it is true or not. God has been telling us the truth and the devil has been trying to deceive us since the beginning of time.
But let's bring that home a little bit. Consider a car accident. Let's say you're standing on the side of the road and three cars hit each other. An angry driver who is having more than a bad day T-bones a passenger car with her F-150, slamming it into a nearby wall. Meanwhile, another guy coming the other direction hits this mess with his 4 Runner. The F-150 gal drives away to avoid getting caught. You see all of this.
Later on, the forensic guys come along and collect the evidence. They conclude the passenger car driver lost control and slammed into the wall, and the 4-Runner hit the passenger car, thus blaming the driver of that car, who is conveniently (for them) now dead. The police report will reflect this conclusion - and it doesn't reflect on the forensic guys, who no doubt think they are right and have evidence for their conclusions. But they aren't fooling you. You KNOW what happened. You saw it.
(Now in real life, both you and the driver of the 4-Runner would tell the cops this information and they would go hunt down F-150 girl, but that isn't the point.)
The same thing is true of the Genesis creation story versus the evolution story. The evolution story is the "forensic guys" coming along after the fact and collecting the evidence and drawing their own conclusions. But they aren't going to fool Adam - he was there. They aren't going to fool Moses either, who was there. Or David, who was there. Or Jesus' followers - they were there. You can argue that the oral tradition of the creation story got distorted between Adam and Moses, but when Moses wrote down the law, I think God would have corrected any errors in the Genesis story. Various parts of that creation story are cited in the entire Bible as God's reasons for doing what he does, his promises in the past, etc. The entire Bible is internally consistent, despite the fact that it took place over a period of thousands of years. That alone is a witness to its accuracy.
