Funny thing is, sometimes daughters/sons hate what parents do to them, they think of them as authoritarians.
Then some time is past and sons/daughters are now parents themselves, they do the very thing they hated, now they call it discipline or that they get worried about their children education, wellbeing, yada yada!
Just saying! (somehow the topic made me think of that). Not that I am saying that is always the case, there are overbearing and possessive parents out there (so sometimes children say that for a reason). Anyway, one needs maturity to strike a balance.
