I am a government servant and live in the place of duty which is more than 80 miles from my parents home. I have not been living in home for last 8 years. So when i come home to visit my parents less than 15 days, should i offer qasr prayer or not?

If your parents home is still considered your home then you will have to perform full prayer upon reaching your parent's home. If your parents home is not your home anymore and you do not own any part of it for the purpose of settling back then you would perform Qasr Salah upon reaching there unless you intend to stay there for longer than 14 days.

And Allah knows best.
