I'm not saying I don't have my problems, but I've never really struggled with jealousy. Recently however, I've wondered if parents become jealous of their children... is this true? I notice my parents CHECKING ME OUT like eyeing me and everything (not sexually obviously) but its a little weird. My dad is 47 and he has put on a little weight over the years, I'm very active, not tied down to a job (I work a lot, but not fixed hours/retail/waiter sort of jobs) So do parents get jealous of their children? What can I do about it if its true? Thoughts?
