Is it inevitable?

No matter how good a job we do as parents raising our children, isn't it possible that they'll still judge us unfairly as they grow up. I guess it's inevitable. In our minds we're doing the best we can for them. But, to the child, we're the constant bad guy who won't let them eat candy between meals or stay out late with friends on a school night. How many times have you said to yourself, "I'll be a better parent than my mom." How many times do you think your kids have said the same thing about you?

yeah, that kind of things usually happen, you should know that most of the creatures abondon their parents when they grow up, and i think it's the nature. you can't avoid it. even when your children grow up, they will sometimes hate you , judge you unfairly as you say, but i believe down to most of the parents' heart, they want to make their children bettern men and better women. many sooner of later they will understand the reason why you treat them like that or say something harsh to them.

Oh, of course...our children will always find something wrong with the way we parented them. The only things we can do is take what we learned from our parents and try to improve on that with our own children. Hopefully each generation will get better!
