Actually, my wife could say this one. And it's killing me. She leaves the house for 6 hours for a ride on her motorcycle say, twice a week.., I stay home with my son. Suddenly, I'm not paying enough attention to her and we should consider ourselves "separated". Really?

Sounds like she's riding more than a motorcycle to me.

Nothing wrong with this. If your kid is running around like a farking lunatic while you sit completely oblivious or ignoring it, you bet your ass I'm looking at you like you're the asshole. Your kid is an asshole too but only because his asshole parents allow him/her to be.

That reads more like a list of "things spoiled angsty teenagers often assume, because they don't know shiat about anything and are utterly incapable of considering their parents as individual persons who simply cannot live, 100%, 24x7, by and for their childrens' whims".

Sure, there are bad parents out there. But, overwhelmingly, it's because they're abusive.
Most of that psycho-trauma "i'm screwed up because mom wanted a daughter" nonsense is oversold. There simply aren't that many cases like that.

State-sponsored medical terrorism: Texas authorities arrest parents, kidnap their teenage daughter, and force her through chemotherapy against her will

Chemotherapy? Those monsters. I'm sure wheatgrass smoothies and a good cleanse would have taken care of those naughty little neoplastic cells and set everything right, without using chemicals.

Litig8r:

But unless the parents were truly abusive, their children will always love them.

You sound like a parent who makes Affirmatives Statements at the mirror several times a day. Oh, you take child custody & child support cases for free? Hmm.

What's the difference between loving your parents and Stockholm Syndrome? (No, that's not a rhetorical question.)

Anyway.

Something I can't get: why don't these guys realize paying her to keep the kids beats getting saddled with them themselves? "If I pay your Mom double can you stay away next month? There's a case of Old Crow out there with my name on it." (Yes, this paragraph is supposed to be funny.)

The One True TheDavid: What's the difference between loving your parents and Stockholm Syndrome? (No, that's not a rhetorical question.)


One is a form of trauma bonding involving dominant and submissive parties through which the submissive party identifies with the dominant party as a survival and dissonance minimizing mechanism to resolve a negative and inescapable situation.

The other involves a Swedish bank robbery.
 
2012-11-28 04:10:13 PM  

The One True TheDavid: cryinoutloud:Bad parents don't know they're bad parents. That's why they don't do it better.
Don't you think they can compare themselves and their kids to other families? I know I'll never write as well as Henry James. Or are they like my parents? My dad did the best he could with the little he had...


Some of them can, and they get better, and their kids do better. But some of them are pretty ignorant, and they just figure that anyone who raises their kids differently than they do is stupid--without realizing that they're the party that's stupid.

Look how much arguing there is about parenting among people whose kids will probably all turn out OK, regardless of how much people disagree about it. And nobody really knows the "right" way anyhow, so if you learned a shiatty way to raise your kids and you're fine with it (after all, that's how you were raised!), then you won't know any different until it's too late to fix it. And it's also a fact that some very shiatty parents have children that turn out all right, and vice-versa. So if you're trying to tell someone the "right" way to raise kids, you're on pretty shaky ground, no matter WTF is going on in that house.

Smelly Pirate Hooker: cryinoutloud: Bad parents don't know care that they're bad parents. That's why they don't do it better.
Fixed that for you. They know. They just don't care.


no, a lot of them really don't know. They think they're fine parents. But their parents were shiatty parents, and their parents before them, and well, how is anyone supposed to learn how to be a good parent if they aren't that smart and never had a good role model?

This isn't rocket science. Except on Fark, apparently, where everyone is supposed to have bootstraps that not only bail them out of poverty, but teach them every single social skill in the world.

It really wasn't meant to be a pissing contest. I find when I hear other people's stories of bad parenting, it makes me feel a little better that I'm not alone and that someone out there *somewhere* understands what I went through.

I have a friend who probably went through worse things than me... like his mom cut him with a broken ashtray and that's why he has that big scar on his forearm kind of things. I'm fairly certain the reason I'm semi-well adjusted despite what I went through is because I talk about it.

My friend doesn't. He also keeps to himself, doesn't have many friends, hasn't had a girlfriend in years and is approaching 40. -He's a great guy, and would make a great dad, but he thinks he's so broken that he doesn't deserve to be happy. If me sharing some of my crappy childhood experiences helps anyone here realize things can be okay... I will.

My oldest brother is gay. My father (Dad's not his bio dad, but raised him) was a tough old bird. We didn't tell Dad about it b/c we feared that Dad would kick Scott out. He didn't. Seemed to actually accept Scott and his partner of...geezz...about 25 years now
. ..
Shortly before Dad passed, in 08, he told my Mom that he didn't care that Scott was gay. That was his son, and he loved him.
When Mom told me about it, she said that she'd always thought that my dad had hated Scott.
Dad was not very demonstrative. He showed affection in small ways. Money for a magazine, teaching the boys how to build an engine, taking the girls fishing, so I guess I can see how she thought that.

Anyway...it got dusty in here, and I've forgotten where I was going with this...Umm...I had a kick-ass Dad and my Mom rocks. :)

I'm still wondering if I should care to be honest. I was told via email that I was apparently separated from my wife. I realize it's the 21st century, but you really could only tell me this over email? While I was in an all-day meeting? and then transfer all your angst over to me as "it's your call how we handle it from here". Maybe I'm just better off without someone so ... erratic in my life.
