Blaming our parents is a universal therapeutic experience. Sure, sometimes we’re in the wrong too (don’t tell my mother I said this), but questioning parenting tactics is crucial to our societal improvement. Talking about parenting isn’t easy, and it always verges on the thin line of getting into an argument, but thanks to the incredible power of the Internet (seriously, what would we do without it?), people are denormalizing parenting practices that should be long gone. So now you can call your mom and complain about all the annoying things she did to you as a kid and blame it on the Internet!
The Power of Unspoken Words
Even though it may seem evident that communicating with our children is crucial to their development, many parents are not so inclined to make that effort. Sure, talking openly about intimacy and babies is more common nowadays, but this wasn’t always the case.
Back in the day, society was more conservative, so avoiding these subjects was customary in many households. Even though parents didn’t know any better, we can now see how failing to educate our children can often leave them feeling unsupported and lost in the world. After all, our parents will always be our first teachers.
