One of my so say friends have a daughter and well she is just mad about her. That’s good right? Well, not quite.
I am not a parent and I don’r claim to know what it’s like but consider you as a person have someone who is controlling every aspect of your life and is doing it for so long that you just feel that it have to be like this.
You’re a kid who have an underachieved parent who want’s to pay himself or herself back using you and your life. Should it be like this? No, of course not.
One of my mentors, George Carlin talked about this some years ago but it’s still true to the dot.
My friend is just pushing her daughter further and further. And as long as I know that maybe some day it will pay up for both of them, she’s just not realising that she is stealing her childhood.
Give kid a break for fuck sake
Let your child learn what he or she want to learn. The easy or the hard way. To my mind there are two kinds of people. Some of them will break and in adult life be just a cog in big machine. When the parent will not be around to “guide” them, they will be a slave of the boss in company they will be working for.
Other type will snap at some point and will try to get back everything they have missed out on while being a kid. In most cases this might not end up well.
What will you do?
Do you have a child of your own?
Are you pushing the limits or being just normal person allowing him or her to make mistakes and learn from them?
