30 day challenge - Number 19 - Disrespecting Parents

How oddly biblical.

The list doesn't make it clear if this is what you're supposed to do, give your opinion on or what...

All things considered my parents are pretty good people who haven't let me down that much during my life. That said parents are human and not infallible (washing my mouth out with whisky may not have been a good idea given my subsequent appreciation for single malt). Everyone makes mistakes and you can view parents as an object lesson - a genetic 'preincarnation' to provide you with object lessons on your own likely tendencies and how to overcome them or avoid the same problems and issues that they've had (making a delightful rogue's gallery of your own personal disasters).

I think that's all that needs to be said at this point.
