“Worshiping your parents” is dangerous because it discourages us from questioning our parents (which is REALLY important). It is dangerous because the kids grow up and expect their kids to worship them. It is dangerous because it enables many parents to abuse their children. It is dangerous because many parents manipulate and emotionally blackmail their children. It is dangerous because many parents bully their children. It is dangerous because it turns parents into narcissists. Our parents are not Gods. They are human beings with flaws and limitations. Respect and love your parents but don’t be fanatical about them!

One thought on “Parents are not Gods

  1. These same parents that demand their kids worship ones are, at least some times, the ones that abused and eventually abandoned their own parents. Both of mine did this and one of them literally once told me “we created you, so why can’t we destroy you?”
    Narcissists are dangerous people. Narcissism is a cluster B personality disorder; a slightly less intense version of sociopathy. If your parents go too far and don’t think normal boundaries apply to them, this isn’t them asking for additional respect — this is a sign that they might be bad for your health.
    Consider contacting child protective services if you’re under 18, or cutting off all ties to them of you’re past that age — it would’ve saved my life if I did.
