As Dr. Perlmutter testified, this is a sad case where despite the difficulties, George's daughters have a resilient love for their father and still wish to have a relationship with him, but on their terms and not his. They hope he can change.My kids were 12 and 10 at the time of Ken Perlmutter's $28k evaluation. He said that I was as good a parent as my ex-wife. But apparently I cannot see my kids because they want to dictate the terms of the relationship.
Perlmutter never found anything wrong with my child-rearing practices. His biggest complaint was that I do not always do what my kids want.
I have read a bunch of child-rearing books. None of them say that a parent should let an 12 or 10-year-old child control the terms of the relationship with the parent. Perlmutter is completely clueless about child-rearing.
