Many of us have good families that support us. Not everyone is as lucky. It is said that a person’s parents don’t always have their best interests at heart. Sometimes they’re so greedy, that they’re willing to throw their own kids under the bus if it gets them what they want. They think that their kids owe them something because they raised them. That is entitlement turned up to the max.
There is a shocking story about his parents who wanted to trade houses. When they didn’t get their way? They broke the law. The full story can be found below. Take a cup of tea and get angry at the injustice of it all.
After they entered teenhood, their parents started treating them differently. The parents took it too far and demanded most of their child’s paycheck. They evicted their own flesh and blood when he didn’t play by their rules.
A person shared a story about how his parents crossed the line.
There were a lot of red flags when he was a child.
The son got a strange offer from his parents after buying a house for himself.
His parents wanted a handout and things came to a head. The situation quickly turned nasty.
The man decided to humiliate his parents after the authorities got involved.
The Redditor’s house was not far from his parents. The parents decided to trade houses. Yes, you read that right. They hated the fact that their child was doing better than them. They were told no immediately, but that wasn’t the end of the story. It was downright disgusting what happened next.
The parents of the Redditor were begging him for a handout because their air conditioning unit broke. He found his house had been broken into. The place was a mess and the front door locks were missing. The parents denied doing anything wrong. When the police and the neighbors got involved, they were hoping they wouldn’t go to jail.
Simple justice was the price for that. Give back the ACs, clean up the house, write an apology, and promise never to ask for anything again. The mom and dad were overwhelmed. Their son got cameras for his house so nothing like this would happen again. The cherry on top? The parents had enough money for an AC.
Lenore Skenazy told that more and more parents are trying to control their kids.
“One thing many parents are choosing today is to keep their kids under constant surveillance, with the help of tech. Whether it’s being able to track their kids’ movements, read their browsing history, or even scan their texts, parents have all sorts of new tools to make them seemingly omniscient,” she said that many parents don’t respect their children’s privacy.
“For the same reason you didn’t want your parents to read your diary, or to build a treehouse on the branch right next to YOUR treehouse, children need some space to grow into their own person. Kids need to know they are loved, but they also need to know they are trusted. They can’t prove that if parents never actually let them do some things literally on their own, without constant surveillance,” she said.
“In the past, the only people we electronically tracked were felons on parole. They had to wear an ankle monitor that the warden could check to make sure they were where they were supposed to be. The felon knew that this was better than prison—but it wasn’t freedom,” the expert told us that parents should adopt a “talk, don’t stalk” approach for everyone’s sake.
“Try to keep the lines of communication open with your kids, and gradually give them more freedom as they get older and earn it by being responsible. Taking all independence away for their ‘safety’ is a way to teach them that you don’t think they can handle anything on their own— how deflating!—and that you don’t trust them. Would you appreciate a spouse who tracked your every move? Would you feel trusted? Love requires some trust.”
