Default Re: How to handle this

Hello-
I have seen this in many instances, and each circumstance is unique. What is the cognitive functioning of the parents, what are the expectations, are they morning the fact that they will not have the perfect child they expected, or are they just selfish jerks, or have their own mental disorders. Look at the family history and see what the patterns are, you will be amazed at what you find in the layers of generations.
I often point their behavior out to them tactfully, at first as inhibiting to their child's progress. I become more firm if necessary, and always inquire what their goals are, they may not be what you expect.
