    Why do some parents who consider children to be gifts, treat them as if they are not?

    One constantly hear parents who adamantly proclaim that children are gifts from God, oftentimes bringing them in the world w/o any forethought for their children's well-being & future.  If such parents truly practiced what they believed & preached, they would ascertain that their children would born into & have the best opportunities & circumstances possible instead of the worst!

    Being a parent is a tremendous responsability.  Sometimes,  a few people planned their family. Those are the parents that enjoy their children. They do a great job with them. Other, they had them because they had no choice. Those parents are not so good, and some of them are great parents.  Those parents that treat their children bad need some counseling to be better parents , or they need to go to church to get counseling too.

      Most parents who truly consider their children to be gifts from God do not end up treating them poorly   Those who do are not exercising a Christian faith, or the tenets of other major faiths.  Children are the same as their parents, both are blessed

      I agree with Perspycacious. Parents who view their children as possessions, of whom they the parents should control not matter what,  often physically and emotionally abuse their children.
