Fascinating.... A friend and I were just talking about being confounded to encounter parenting philosophies like this (or maybe it is a lack of any philosophy??) in the generation of parents in their twenties who are adopting behind us. We're still scratching our heads about how to dialogue with them because it is as if we don't speak the same language. A concept like "loving parental authority" seems to mean as little as Charlie Brown's teacher "Wah WHA. Wa, Wah-wah-WAH"-ing on the telephone. Instead, they aspire to be their child's best friend.... I wonder if perhaps they were raised by families (a generation of parents?) where the dynamics were similar to the one you describe??
