REASONS WHY YOUR CHILD IS DISRESPECTFUL
You’re not the only one asking, “Why is my grown daughter so mean to me?” or “Why is my grown son such a manipulative jerk?” And you wouldn’t be the first parent to blame yourself.
That said, the following reasons may help explain some of their behavior:
- They see their more successful peers as proof your parenting held them back.
- They don’t want to hold themselves to account because it’s easier to blame you.
- They’ve yet to learn how to own their challenges and step up.
- They’re still figuring things out, in other words. Whether or not they do is on them.
