    What causes parents to be fearful, even threatened by and disdainful of children who elect

    to go on a different path whether it is education, religious/ethical/spiritual belief, career, or lifestyle path? Unfortunately, many parents believe that their children are/should be replicas of them.  They actually prescribe their children's lives in terms of education, religious belief, and even career and lifestyle options. They took umbrage at the thought that their children are individuals in their own right.

    If you think your way is the right way and the only way to save them for eternity, a child leaving that path is not only a parenting failure but a personal loss for eternity.
