This was spot on. My mom was a real piece of work. It’s like she read a parenting manual and then said, “I’m going to do the exact opposite of this.” I spent most of my 20s unlearning everything she taught me. I hope some bad parents have the presence of mind to respond to advice and realize what they’re doing when someone calls them out.
