What's your description of a self-centered parent?
How do you think it affects the child? Did you feel that your parents were self-centered? If they were, did it affect your relationship with your parents?
I wrote this when I was half-asleep. :laugh: I'll give a few examples....Do you feel a parent is self-centered when....
they choose to party every weekend with their friends or just hanging out with them? (There's nothing wrong with having a social life while being a parent but kids deserve time from their parents too especially if the parents work or pursue their education for a better job for their family.
Work more than 50-60+ hours per week, including commute?
Having multiple boyfriends or girlfriends because the parent is trying to fill a void in his/her life?
Put their kid(s) to bed EARLY just to get away from their kid(s) or to drink/smoke with family/friends?
Send their kid(s) to a babysitter/caregiver on a frequent basis because a parent feels their priorities comes first like shopping, hanging out with friends, pursing their own interests/hobbies without their kid(s) around? All parents deserve a break from their kid(s) but I do think some take advantage of it too often
