From the other threads, it became obvious that parents want their children to be ... successful, profitable, respected, achieving, to be proud of, and so on, ... except one thing: valuable/worth.
It is our families that formulate what we are and how much we are worth to others. So, the question is, why do the parents abandone their children after they formulated their children for themselves?
Shouldn't parents take a pass/fail exam like kids do? For example, how about a parent doing what all parents used to do, that is to formulate the child to be of WORTH to someone, and then verify their parenting by asking another family if their child is WORTH to join that child?
Parents don't care about their children, they only pretend that they care, otherwise they would put their own worth on the line to find the 1st serious GF/BF or wife/husband. If that works, at least parents would know that their lives were worth something too. But no parent does this any more, because they know that they themselves are worthless.
So what's your take? Should you test your own worth by proving that your kid is worth to someone who is of worth to your kid too, or don't bother?
