All parenting produces unhappy adults

Every parenting style produces disturbed, miserable adults, according to a new study reported by The Onion.

“Our research suggests that while overprotective parenting ultimately produces adults unprepared to contend with life’s difficulties, highly permissive parenting leads to feelings of bitterness and isolation throughout adulthood,” lead researcher Daniel Porter said. “And, interestingly, we found that anything between those two extremes is equally damaging, always resulting in an adult who suffers from some debilitating combination of unpreparedness and isolation.”

However, “adults often achieve temporary happiness when they have children of their own to perpetuate the cycle of human misery.”
