“Rule: “My adult child should be able to balance out whatever mistakes I have made with all of the good that I have done as a parent.” Counter: “While I wish that my child could see all of the ways that I have been dedicated, I”
Joshua Coleman, When Parents Hurt

“Studies show that the most effective parents are authoritative.110 Authoritative parents are defined as being affectionate and loving with their children, but strong in their ability to set limits and make demands. Authoritative parents are contrasted with authoritarians, who are highly controlling and show little affection or tenderness toward their children. They’re also contrasted with permissive parents, who are loving and affectionate but unable to set appropriate limits. Both authoritarian and permissive parents are less likely to raise well-adjusted children than authoritatives.”
Joshua Coleman, The Lazy Husband: How to Get Men to Do More Parenting and Housework

“Many men feel hurt and rejected by the central focus that a child gains in his wife's life. Men who feel displaced, hurt, rejected, or devalued by the arrival of a child are more likely to retreat from doing housework or parenting. Their “laziness” is a protest for feeling displaced and unimportant.”
