For shame, for shame! Shame on that underachieving and undeserving parent using their presence to embarrass that oh so talented child. They shine so bright so you’ve just got to come dim their light, for shame! They are who and what they are despite you not because of you but you’ll always take credit for their accomplishments. They are respected by their peers, they have class. You show up acting out of place, looking like trash. You want the world to know that is your child, share in their greatness. People look at you and shake their heads then they look back to that oh so talented child. You’re child is revered and appreciated that much more because they overcame your bad or absentee parenting and still became successful. Stop trying to take credit for what you haven’t done underachiever; stop stealing their shine. For Shame, for shame!
