Life in public

The young woman who needed the courts to step in and regulate her relationship with her parents now needs the courts to step in and regulate her relationship with her boyfriend--the same unsuitable boyfriend her parents disapproved of, which was the source of her quarrel with them in the first place.  I'll bet she can't understand why people keep trying to interfere in her private life.

"We [the parents] said to her 'Listen, you're an adult. You make your own choices.' "

Maybe it's time to cut her loose and act on that.

Interestingly, at the bottom of T's linked-to article was this link to an article about a more capable woman.

"Cause pain before you injure. Injure before you maim. Maim before you kill. And if you must kill, make it a clean kill. Squeeze every drop of life from the opponent. Because life is so precious, it cannot be wasted, even in death."

“Let him cut your skin, and you cut his flesh. Let him cut your flesh, and you cut his bones. Let him cut your bones, and you cut off his life.”

Somebody had a different upbringing there.

Heh :)

I saw this yesterday elsewhere and indulged in my moment of schadenfreude. Sometimes the best thing you can do for your kids is get out of the way and let them learn a few lessons from the school of hard knocks.

But boy is that hard to do when you love someone. I wonder if being so feckless is something in her personality, or if parenting had something to do with it, too?

I assumed that whoever produced this startling creature must have been parental boobs of a very high order. It takes talent to raise a kid so that she feels, simultaneously, an entitlement to unconditional financial support and an erotic attraction to a physically dangerous partner. Way to teach her the priorities!

Parents, perhaps. Still, "It takes a village to sustain an idiot."

My only consolation here is that the Multiverse has a way of punishing people like her.

*sigh*

Not when they join Hussein the God's side. Then the Multiverse bends itself to the Powerful, for a time, until Death casts its vote.
