Ah, you have hit a nerve! My mother (currently around 90) remarked several years ago about how difficult it was to be around my brother, his wife, and their child. The parents had read a number of "how to raise your child" books that created amazing tension when my mother would suggest that they tell her to shut up or stop misbehaving... I don't remember being harmed by my parents telling to go to my room, shut the door, and go to sleep -- they were clearly deliniated marching orders!
