They (my parents) don't care about/for me. They just care about/for losing face because of my bad grades.

I doubt whether for would also do the trick as well as about in the above context. Thanks.

Hi,

They (my parents) don't care about/for me. They just care about/for losing face because of my bad grades.

I doubt whether for would also do the trick as well as about in the above context. True, say 'about'.

Here are a variety of meanings for 'care for'.

The baby-sitter cares for the child = takes care of the child.

Tom cares for Mary = has feelings of affection/love for her.

I don't care for Pepsi = I don't like it.
