I do not know if this is specific to Eastern cultures, but after observing multiple sets of parents, I came to the realization that:
- parents and grandparents do not want to repent for wrongs and sins they have done to their children or grandchildren. Parents do not want to apologize to their children.
- parents and grandparents do not want to have honest discussions with their children or grandchildren where their wrongdoings and sins are opened up for discussion.
- parents and grandparents do not want to be held accountable by their children, for their wrong attitudes and actions.
