Some parents do become jealous of their children if the child excels or exceeds them in a skill. Some parents become jealous when their children get all of the attention. Many times new dads will feel jealous of the time mom spends doting on the baby for example.
Most parents are pretty well-balanced though and I don't think jealousy is as big of a problem with parent/child as it tends to be among younger siblings. Of course jealousy in general is usually an indicator of someone who needs to be more self-focused in a positive way - instead of envying what someone else has, focus on what you can do and do well.
Most parents didn't have the opportunities their kids now have that can put a jealous thought in their minds.

Why do some people begrudge others even when they are doing their best?Sometimes I notice that there is a tendency to criticize people who are good at what they are doing. It seems to me that one has to be doing nothing to criticize and doing something to be criticized. Is this true?
