Do you hate one or both of your parents?
First, for the point of this question I want to exclude people who were physically or sexually abused by the parent.
Here are my question:
1. Did you limit your time with your parent(s) or completely cut off for a while, or ongoing, because of the anger or anxiety it caused you?
2. Do you have children yourself?
3. If you have children, did having children give you a different perspective of your parents and more understanding, or just reinforce they were horrible parents?
If you are willing, give us a brief summary of why you cannot tolerate the parent?
Any other comments you want to add to the discussion relating to the topic are welcome.
