I'm afraid the problem is a lot bigger than parents and their blind
children not taking control. As long as there is a blind person willing
to be victimized they will be by their parents, in-laws, spouse,
employer, etc. There is always someone out there who is perfectly fine
with victimizing someone else they feel they can control, and the only
solution is to stand up to it face to face.
A few years ago after I got married my wife tried that crap on me, and I
stood up to it and told her how things were going to be. You see she
grew up in a very strict Christian fundamentalist church, at the time
she and I met she had walked away from that, but after we got married
she got back into that way of thinking.She decided on her own to
"purify" our home by tossing out all of my music cds, which she didn't
like, decided unilaterally to throw away any dvds that were not "Godly",
etc. I flat out told her not only was she going to go out and get them
out of the trash and put them back where they were I made it clear if
she ever did something like that again I'd kick her butt to the curb so
fast she wouldn't know what hit her, and don't let the door hit her on
the butt on the way out. Let's just say she got the message real quick
that I wasn't going to sit back while she shoved her religion down my
throat and control me like a puppet. We've have had arguments since, but
she's never had the guts to try anything quite that drastic again. She
knows I meant it when I'd kick her out on the street for it. It is a bit
cold, but necessary to maintain my individual rights as a human being.
