Beethovan's struggle

On fighting custody of his brother's son:

He wanted to be the father he never had, but he turned out to be the father he had.

It's hard for us to not become the parent we did not like because we only learn parenting from the subtle things we encounter with our parents. The only way to break the mode is to not focus on what you want but what the child needs.
