In case you haven't figured it out yet, your parents are not happy with the way you are raising your children.
It is that simple.
They don't think that you are raising their grandchildren the right way.
From where they sit, the next generation is just being raised too soft. Parents are too focused on making their children happy all of the time, rather than focusing on actually parenting them and preparing them for life.
Justin Worsham of The Dad Podcast agrees.
The role of a parent is not to be their child's friend. Their role is to raise their kids to be self-sufficient and capable adults.
However, fathers are more involved in their kids' lives than ever before.
That can't be a bad thing, right?
If the father is a strong, disciplinarian that brings order, then perfect.
