Most people live with mom and dad until they are about 18 at most; however, I hear plenty of people in their 50s, 60s and even 80s still bitterly talk about the faulty programming of their parents. Enough is enough. Seeking out role models other than mom or dad helps to correct faulty programming. That is why many of us listen to Teal and Blake or find other people to help correct faulty programming. Many people keep blaming mom and dad for "the way they ended up" because they encounter, in their daily lives, people who unconsciously remind them of mom or dad, although mom or dad may have passed away years ago. It is true that parents make mistakes, we all do, but focusing on the mistakes our parents made will not increase the quality of our lives.
