3. Background: In this article, Christin Perry describes a Sympathetic Parent as one who believes in all parents’ fundamental authority to dominate their children’s will. Sympathetic parents do not negotiate with their children; instead, they dictate how their children will act and use punishment, neglect, and deprivation as the methods for ensuring that their instructions are followed. Many children of Sympathetic parents achieve admirable life goals due to parents’ relentless demands. Still, the downside of such “nurturing” is low self-esteem and a nagging sense of inferiority in too many cases. A minority of their children resist their parents, rebel against the treatment they receive, and become delinquents or even criminals as a way of asserting their personalities.
How I Used It: I used this article to emphasize that while the outcome of being raised by a Sympathetic Parent might look admirable to outside observers, the cost to the children’s psyche is too expensive to warrant their apparent success, even if the bullying they received from their parents results in them becoming successful professionals.
