His letter comes off to me as typical British upbringing where they feel they must compete with other parents. Poor Mr. Crewell doesn't get to boast
about his children at dinner parties. Why can't he just lie like the rest of them do. Is he that thick ? Is it really that important what type of
career or marriage you think your child should have? His fretting over his grandchildren is most likely exaggerated. I'm sure they are doing just
fine. He admits he didn't take the time to talk to his daughter and dumped it all on his wife. She is just as bad saying she agrees. He's a dick that
he didn't step in until now.
I have a hunch even if they reported something good to him it still wouldn't be good enough. Nobody measures up to his high standards and yes he is
out if touch with the modern world, not that he's that old.
All he complained about was he didn't get to boast about them because what other people think takes priority.
He made his children feel like pieces if #. He needs a good slap! Shame on him.
And what is this other parents would like to tell their children the truth but wouldn't dare?
I can talk to my children however I want and vise versa.
Thank God I left England.
My father has made comments to me about my life and I wasn't afraid to set him straight and explain to him this is hurtful and wrong. He isn't doing
that anymore. We talked it through.
