  • Unconditional love? I have no idea. I'm a pediatric nurse and I WISH that some parents would see how awful their kids treat people!
  • In their children, they see themselves. How could they not be perfect?
  • They are too tired to take action. Also, they may be so disconnected from their innate parenting instincts by too much advice they have been given or too many parenting books they have read or too much stuff they have smoked or drank that they are not in touch.
  • i think its because if the parents agree that their child is doing wrong, it falls back on them and their parenting skills and they dont want to accept that. or take responsibility.
  • You have obviously never met any of my children :) They've done plenty wrong, but I love them anyway.
  • They are...blinded by the light.
  • Because love is blind...
  • because some people are too proud to admit anything is wrong with anything in their lives. its not wrong to know your kid is a dumbass or that they make bad mistakes. everyone does and you shouldnt raise your kids without discepline.
  • its not that you cant see whats wrong with them, its that you're a parent and you're built to accept them the way they are...and also when you see something wrong with your children, you just focuse on how to help them be right.
  • If I knew anyone like that, I might be able to relate to this question. But for now, I have to believe you are just being incredibly presumptuous. Are you honestly suggesting that someone has told you outright, with no hint of irony, that they do not see ANY wrong in their child(ren)? I have a hard time believing that there is anyone who fits that description. It definitely sounds more like a judgment based on your blind assumptions.
  • they might be crazy. everyone has done something wrong
  • You know, the worst things I see in my child reminds me of myself.
  • Parents are biased.
  • Simply because love is blind.
  • It is some kind of blind love. Also, some parents won't admit that their kids are bad or wrong, because by doing that they will have to accept that maybe they have failed as parents. They are too proud to admit that they are not perfect at anything they try to accomplish.
  • That may be the case in some parents others see only wrong in theirs. Many parents have such high expectations from their children that the child feels as if it is failing all the time. Everyone is different, as are arents
  • Seeing something wrong with their child would mean there's also something wrong with them. They usually have the most influence on them. Or so I see it :]
  • Constant denial and the belief that everyone's children are just as bad or worse.
  • First I want to say this isn't referring to all Parents that can't see any wrong in their children, but I know of 3 families where the parent or parents absolutly would not admit their children did ANYTHING wrong. all 3 families, their kids have been to jail and or prison. I believe this is because they were taught they can do no wrong.
  • Oh, So it was you at that Walmart where my daughter was climbing that display and fell on your head.
  • Because they would have to admit there not very good parents.
  • I believe parents are born with blinders, when it comes to their children. I have arrested preachers and police officers children for criminal violations. Had two parents that kept hiding their wanted children from the police. we finally arrested the parents for interfering with a criminal investigation. Sometimes, you have to do what you have to do.
  • Because either A the children are good and can hide it when there not around. OR B the parents are just to full of them selfs and are not paying any attention.
  • because you dont want to ever see your own doing wrong... they are supposed to be full of innocence
  • Because they refuse to see the wrong because it is a twisted way of the mind so they dont have to face the real issue and that is that they are the problem the child is having because of the way they raised them.
  • because, they think, it reflects upon them bad parenting
  • I can and I do..I'm realistic when it comes to my kids...They are as human as I am...We all make mistakes.But it doesn't stop a mom from loving them..
  • its not in their nature to
  • Probably because they are a reflection of themselves.
  • 95% of parents see the bad side of their kids but hate to admit it. The other 5% are totally blinded and have an annoying habbit of being really selfless beings.
  • No parent wants to admit that no matter how good their parenting style is, children are just human, and no parent wants to admit that they 'failed' on some level. Some parents like myself do see the wrong and try to correct it, then again, sometimes, I'm a little harsh and try to over correct them.
  • My kids would pay you to teach me that trick :) Actually, I think they appreciate that I take care of business with that sort of thing. My oldest has thanked me for it, and my other two seem to respect that I am not like that. Makes them more secure I think
