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
OK, fair enough. I don't know you personally and I can't judge you as an individual, but it seems that this era is a focal point for parental issues and that's based on experience. So the question remains open to a broader evaluation.
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.
The Women's Movement and Technology boom made a lot of people think that mothering was a nice but not-all-the-important thing, and that words/skill in understanding human beings and babies were nice, but not important or "smart". Values changed.
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!
