Author of Sleeping with Your Baby: And there is good reason why.
Why does my wife feed our kids a steady diet of junk food? Does she want them to be obese? My ex allows our year old daughter to sleep in the same bed with her. What the hell is going on? My ex seems to get mad when I spend time with our kids and take them places or buy them little gifts or new school clothes.
Many men and women in my practice have made the above observations and asked the above questions. The subject of maternal sabotage is also one of the many common themes on the Shrink4Men Forum.

And if the children get hurt as a result, she will blame you. Emotionally and psychologically speaking, this is often true. These individuals can be incredibly immature and seem to be stuck at an early age of emotional development.
Morality and religious beliefs about premarital sex aside, the simple fact of the matter is that children have not reached the optimal emotional maturity or intellectual capacity to be parents.
The same is true of parents who are children in adult bodies. The possibility that her child may surpass her scholastically, in attractiveness, in popularity, in physical fitness, in athletic ability, etc.
The opposite can also be true. This is a particularly insidious form of abuse and, in some ways, is the opposite of child parentification.The NSPCC is the UK's leading children's charity, preventing abuse and helping those affected to recover.
