How do I get to know my parents as people?

I have a cordial but distance relationship from my parents and while I don't ever see us being BFFs, I would like to know them better as people and their life.

Is getting an MBA a good investment?

Is an MBA worth getting? I've seen a lot of talk to the contrary lately, and most of the MBAs that I know don't seem to be doing work now that particularly requires an MBA, so I'm wondering if it's just a waste of time and money compared to just gaining more work experience? I was thinking of getting an MBA as a way to shift into less pure-IT related work, since I can't seem to get rehired as a developer after a long absence.
