Do you believe that the majority of parents are somewhat dismissive and somewhat abusive


in the treatment of their children? While there are enlightened parents who treat their children as unique individuals with the utmost consideration and respect, many parents consider their children to be lesser because they are children. They feel that as parents they have the unmitigated right to treat their children as they please.

    Very true, many parents view their children as property to bend to their will instead of seeing their children as individuals with human potential. So sad indeed.

    I agree. A lot of parents wait until they are ready to explode before dealing with a child. Very few kids grow up like kids in The Cosby show where parents sat down calmly and logically explained things before issuing a (non violent) punishment.
