Why is it anytime someone's child is wronged, whether it's something serious like bullying or something trivial like an undeserved bad grade, everyone is on track to say stand up for your child, advocate for your child, be outraged for your child, even if it's not appropriate for them to be. And yet, as soon as it's a MIL, an ex, or the ex-wife's mother, or the mother of anyone else that someone has hurt directly, they should be a complete martyr, forgive everyone and everything, and no longer be the advocate for their child? If someone hits your child, be angry, but if you hit someone else, their parent should get over it? If your SIL/DIL leaves your child, be angry on their behalf, but if you dump someone else, their parent should get over it?
Why do people think they're so special that no other parent is allowed to be upset over the harm caused to their own children? Why are they unable to see that just because they are an adult (allegedly), the other people they interact with are still someone else's child?
