Someone in our office started discussing teen idols, etc., and brought up Jamie Spears and her pregnancy at age 16. One of my co-workers immediately launched into a tirade, saying "It's all the parent's fault." She went on and on with no one else able to get a word in. I sat there, stunned, at the betrayal of a co-worker I'd known for 16 years basically saying that I was completely to blame for my daugher getting pregnant. If I hadn't been so stunned, I would have liked to say "Well, don't hold back. Tell me what you really think of me." Anyone who knows me, as she certainly does, would know that I raised three kids and only one of them gave us any trouble and now that she's been diagnosed as bi-polar, her behavior makes sense. Does anyone else get the "It's all your fault because you were a rotten parent" attitude from people?
