Parents take advantage of the kids

In some family’s parents have too many expectations when the kids are very young, and in some extreme cases, parents have full control over the children.

Children do not respect parents.
Sometimes kids completely ignore the parent’s needs and take advantage of them and use them to fulfill their needs; this happens when the parents have become vulnerable. For example, if the couple is employed and go to work their parents are expected to help them out with their kids, all the time. In this day and age when the parents have small children and if they have to go to work, they need some real help from their grandparents, but they remember to keep their boundaries as well.
