Do you think it's normal for a father's competitive instincts to make it uncomfortable to see their son succeed?

I'm not a father or a son, but I've seen this before. Does it happen? Yes.. Is it healthy? Not in my opinion. A father should want to see his son do well.. but that doesn't always happen. Everyone is flawed in some way.

Hi TJ.

I just watched a movie that in one way or another pertained to this topic. The movie was called "This way of life" and I am going to include a link to where you can stream the vid online at no cost. The story portrayed is from the son's point of view mostly but maybe it will give some insight. I found it to be a pretty valuable piece of (human existence) and glad I came across it.

From what I gather, having a rough relationship with my pops and no kids of my own, Fairness is the value on which a healthy foundation for parent/child relationship can grow.

No, TJ. It's not normal for a father to compete against his son's success. A good parent and a mature parent want the very best for their kid, and that includes success. A father who does not want his son to eclipse his own success is a narcissist. It may be normal to feel some competition when golfing together, etc, but that shouldn't extend to general success. Excuse me while I roll my eyes at your father. :roll: :roll: Amy

way of life is an interesting movie which explores the intracacies of parent child relationship...Saw this film on BBC2 late last night, and found it eminently watchable
