That post about the card to the bride to be, from her parents, about her weight, made me wonder; where is the line that separates verbal/emotional abuse and honesty, especially when dealing with your children?

Here is the link to the other post. For whatever reason, I can't make it clicky. Ugh.

Idk what post you're talking about, but I'd say when the "honesty"is meant to control, manipulate, and/or intimidate and isn't genuine concern for someone's well-being.

Well that's blunt and rude. That's something my mom would have said.

That's..... wow. What a jerk move. Sounds like they care more about the money they spent on the dress than their kid.

I agree with the poster who said when it's more about control, manipulation and self interest than about what is best for the child. And, yes, I think that note had nothing to do with what was good for the bride-to-be, and certainly only added stress.

Also, who else thinks that was all the mom and the dad knew little or nothing of it?
