I did not want to hijack the children/R-rated movie thread

I find it interesting that parents go out of their way for their kids, "spoiling" them and pumping up their self-steem with praise and trophies at every turn and then doing things that are really not in the child's best interest - like taking them to inappropriate movies and other venus that are not child friendly simply because mom and dad want to go.

How can parents be both overly protective and indulgent of their child and also so increadibly self absorbed and selfish?
