Save The Words

My love for books extends to words and all things wordy - which might explain my instant attraction to this website:

This is my adopted word:

It means "reciprocal love or kindness, specifically in the parent/child relationship"
The sample sentence is: The prodigal son never gave his father any form of antipelargy.

I tried looking it up on some online dictionaries - but they didn't even have it listed. Also Firefox thinks I'm trying to spell "antipersonnel".

I'm having trouble using it in a sentence though - The antipelargy was evident in the mother's interaction with her daughter. Does that work?

How would you use it?
