I never realized how selfish parents could be when it comes to their kids until recently. I notice my mom is doing the same thing my SO's mom did back when him and I got our apartment together for a short period of time. She's trying to find a million and one excuses for me not to move back down to Miami for school and to be closer to him for the baby. She only wants me to stay because if I move she won't have me to help out with picking up the slack from bills because of my brother's B.S. That's the same thing my SO's mom did because she wouldn't have him to pay her car note and give her money to remodel her house.
Why is it that parents become so financially dependent on their kids when it should be the other way around IMO?
