Why are baby boomers simultaneously so critical of parenting and such bad parents themselves?

    I'm a baby boomer & I don't think I am a bad parent. Of course, most people probably don't think they are a bad parent, but if you consider I raise my kids to be moral, productive citizens and make a difference in the world, then I am bad a pare

    It seems pretty clear that my question calls for us to evaluate a generational trend, and that this places less emphasis on individual circumstance. But shining example of how self-interest wins out and being quick to lash out at perceived criticism.

    I think you're right, which is why I stayed an outsider as far as parenting goes. I think I saw how it all happened, and it's a Hub or a book in itself. No space here to elaborate. Think it's more societal trends than just individuals though.

    Yup, that's what I keep getting. This whole issue about dishing out and receiving criticism, and it's disproportional. Can't take credit for anything unless it's at someone's expense. You guys exist in a vacuum...so love one another. LOL!
