Das ungelebte Leben der Eltern

The more “impressive” the parents are, and the less they accept their own problems (mostly on the ex­cuse of “sparing the children”), the longer the children will have to suffer from the unlived life of their parents and the more they will be forced into fulfilling all the things the parents have repressed and kept unconscious.
