    Default Relationships between parents and their offspring

    What do you think of the idea that it's unnecessary to maintain a strong relationship with your offspring once the child becomes an adult? I had a friend express this opinion last night and it got me thinking. It seems to impose many unnatural burdens upon people who feel differently about the parent/offspring relationship. I'm kind of curious to see if any authors have written more extensively on the subject.

    Do you have an unconventional or uncommon view on this matter?

    You're wondering if there are any authors who wrote about their relationship to their parents?
    Someday, I will show you the Fiction section of your local library.

    See also, the entire heavy metal genre.

    No, I mean an actual social critique of these relationships. Not just angsty personal accounts and such.

    I personally believe your relationship with your parents can flourish and become most rewarding once you are both adults and can relate to each other on almost equal footing.

    Is it necessary? Well, I suppose not. But enjoyable and fulfilling? Certainly.

    Well, of course, everyone should kill their parents when growing up and parents should definitely listen to The Offspring while they are alive.
