Most people like their parents even though they probably made mistakes as they went along they still loved their children.
It is true, some parents can only give so much, perhaps because of the way they were treated as children--but whatever the reason, it's still very confusing--you're always trying to figure out the unreasonable.
Perhaps the person was an alcoholic but still a loving person that wanted a good life for their children--in the long run that may be less of a confusing situation that the parent who states they love you but constantly undermines their child even into adulthood.
Henry Winkler speaks of his parents always referring to him as the dumb dog--it's horrible but in a way it is refreshing to hear someone else with the same situation.
It seems to me if John Cleese took the time to write this book we might try to be more observant about what he is trying to say.
John Cleese talking about his mom--here is a story about his book from the Daily Mail:
Why is John Cleese so malicious about his mother? A damning verdict on Fawlty Towers star's shockingly sour memoir from a man who unlocks the mind's secrets
- Professor David Wilson delivers a damning verdict of new autobiography
- 'Much of it reads like memoirs of the resident bore of suburban Rotary Club'
- 'Comes across as narcissist lacking in empathy...prosaic and self-obsessed'
- Comedian suggests mother was 'controlling, neurotic, self-obsessed and difficult' and blames her for him being 'dysfunctional in his romantic liaisons'
- So, Anyway . . . The Autobiography by John Cleese (Random House, £20).
