That's fair. I agree.
Me, too. And from the opposite end of the picture, what about children who grow up to be perfectly wonderful adults, despite some pretty awful parenting. I mean, honestly, my parenting style might most accurately have been described as "benign neglect", and my kids are great kids. And I hear the disrespectful things people say to their children, and I think "that voice in going to live in that kid's head forever with those kind of messages".
