    So true, many parents routinely critique their children for EVERY mistake and they wonder why their children do not possess ANY initiative? Well, by these stupid parents' criticisms, their children are AFRAID to do and try anything!

    The problem with some of those things is that the parents feel they are martyrs and do not engage in a relationship with their children

    Ah, yes the last one. There are some parents who believe that their children SHOULD and OUGHT to do good without praise. Really cannot figure SOME PARENTS out.- and THEY wonder why their children have low self-esteem and self-confidence. Hmmmmm.
