Just completely remove actual parenting and family from the equation. "Parent" in this context simply means someone who comes from a position of "I know better, so these are the rules" and "child" comes from a position of reacting to the rules, either by obeying, or rebelling, or anything in between. It is used in a purely power-games concept, at least as I understand it.



^this helpls me understand it better.
(plus i like discussing things without having read them and randomly googling.)
i google it before and somehow i end up reading about how to deal with power struggles in parenting..

Naming it like parent-child sounds dumb and is misleading.

But through my own observations and experience, I noticed that in every exchange/interaction participants (either groups or individuals) can be sorted into two categories: dominant and submissive, even if difference is very slight.
Why do you try?
There's no bandage for your mind
Why do you cry?
There's no honesty in life
