  1. You nailed this pernicious type of parenting on the head. Many people do not recognize this as a problem because it is so widespread.I was raised in a severe form of this parenting by my father. I am so grateful that I woke up and realized how damaging this is and freed my children from my attempts at “molding” them. Nothing good comes of this in the long run. Thanks again for your always enlightened voice Darius.

    • Thanks for sharing some of your experiences, Mary, and for breaking the cycle of abuse.

      All the best!
