Is it Wrong for a Parent to Vent to Their Children About the Other Parent?
What do they know about shared finances or other issues that parents sometimes disagree on? And what could the parent possible expect from the child? Surely they're not seeking advice from them.
When a parent vents to their child about the other parent, they are putting their child in the emotional position of an adult to make adult choices about what is right or wrong. What does a teenager know about what is supposed to be right or wrong in a marriage relationship? What do they know about shared finances or other issues that parents sometimes disagree on? And what could the parent possible expect from the child? Surely they're not seeking advice from them.
The parent who vents to their kids about the other parent is exposing their own weakness, which makes the children feel insecure. The parent is supposed to be there for the children, not the other way around. Dumping your emotional frustrations onto your children is bad parenting on so many levels, especially when your frustrations stem from the other parent.
More and more parents are expecting too much from their children today. They allow them to be exposed to things they're not mentally or emotionally ready for which confuses them. Children shouldn't be involved at all in the personal lives of the parents. They are not emotionally or mentally capable of deciding which parent is right or which parent is wrong and shouldn't be put into that position to start with.
The children of today have enough in their lives to contend with such as school and peer pressure without being exposed to the personal problems of their parents. The personal conflicts between their parents should never involve them for a number of reasons. When a parent vents to their child about the other parent, they have transferred their frustration onto the child. Why would a parent do that to their child?
The bottom lines is that parents should never involve their children in adult issues, and conflict between parents is an adult issue. Furthermore, children do not fully understand what is right or wrong when it comes to adult issues so why even go there? Parents need to get a hold on their emotions and start being parents, allowing the children to be children. God knows, they will be facing adult issues soon enough.
The parents of today have a tremendous amount of stress in their lives and the older generation sometimes criticizes them. But we need to realize that things were much easier when we were raising our children. We didn't have near as much temptation and stress as the parents of today. Furthermore, when we were raising our children, Jesus was still Lord in America and our role models had morals and integrity. Take a look at their roll models, or even worse, the roll models of your grandchildren.
If you're a parent and feel the need to vent, go to Jesus Christ in prayer.
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. (John 6:37)
