While many parents love and support their children and are in their corner, there are some parents who......well. These parents portend that children should be exact replicas of them. They further assert to their children that their word and ideology are LAW and PREORDAINED. These parents could be classified as being quite intolerant and authoritarian.
These parents portend that their children are not individuals but automatons whose duty is to blindly obey their parents. They are also practictioners of the premise, conditional love. In other words, children of such parents are accepted only if they follow their dictums. Independence of thought and beliefs are simply not tolerated by the parents. There are some parents who actually DISOWN their children if they elect to be different in any way from their parents. Yes, there are some fairweather parents who DISOWN their children if they do not follow their path? Let us discuss this in detail!
I would think it has to depend on the 'life experiences' of the parent(s) for them to get comfortable to stay with such a attitude. Independent living vs depending on another to provide everything can be quite a lesson in itself. Some people can see such attitudes easily though but again, depends on their own experiences. jmo
Parents that do this are usually highly accomplished and want their kids to follow in their tracks.....no it isn't right people are entitled to individuality but it does often happen.
