Ironically, just a day after writing a column entitled, A Child Owes a Parent Nothing; A Parent Owes a Child Everything, this video was posted to YouTube by a very brave daughter who wanted to expose the horror-house she grew up in. The parents in this video don’t have a clue about their role or responsibilities. They are a classic example of two highly immature, dysfunctional adults who abuse their parental role to act-out their personal anger, insecurities on their offspring. This is not parenting, THIS IS ABUSE.
This video should be shown time and again to prospective parents by clergy and mental health professionals as an example of totally inappropriate, unacceptable parenting. The irony of this sad story is that father, William Adams, is a Judge in the “great state” of Texas. There’s a commentary on Texas justice if there ever was one.
