On a side note....after I was grown I found many things that I could "blame" my parents for, but I never brought it up to them. Best to just realize that they are flawed humans (as we all are) and give them a pass.

Today's spoiled, entitled kids (and I'm not pointing fingers, my own are like that to a certain extent) are more likely to say something like this to their parents than my generation is.
Agree with the bold. Wm Shakespeare thought so too:
"How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child."
'How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child' - meaning and origin of this phrase

I think kids have always smarted off to their parents a bit.

And every generation of young adults has its members who like to blame their parents for all their problems. I decided a long time ago to not do that any more.

At any rate, I don't get "spoiled and entitled" from a kid who voices one complaint about how they were raised.
