But one parent, upon hearing a whimper for the child, threw the plan out the window, “Can’t have the child unhappy.” Upon that, the other parent, threw up his hand giving up with the knowledge he can’t do it alone. Now the child is going to push the boundaries even harder with the assumption, the parent will always back down.
