Serial killer, perhaps. Or serial rapist.

You used to hear about parents doing this when their child marries someone they don't like, usually someone of a different race or religion. That isn't a good reason. Crimes that are very damaging to the victim'is a good reason.

I have disowned my parents...
My grandparents are *still* mad at my uncle for marrying a Philipino woman. And he married her like thirty years ago.
I would disown a child of mine if he turned into a murderer, rapist, child molester, or terrorist.

Only for crimes, stated above, but otherwise I'd stand by my children no matter what

For this I have a huge, resounding...NO. Your child is your very own and a gift. They're given to you so that you can love them and nothing they do should ever make you stop loving them. YOu can be mad at them, disappointed in them, but you should never withdraw your love because you may be the only person on earth from whom they receive love.

Only if they did something so horrible that I could see no way of ever forgiving them.

I would never disown my kids, but if they were f*cked up somehow, i wouldn't tell people i was proud of them.

I don't think disowning them just because of their sexuality is acceptable. I wouldn't disown my child if they committed murder or rape, I would just seek help for them.

If they were ugly.

No, you're supposed to love your children unconditionally.

Killing another member of the family is proberally about it. Anyone who would disown their kids for being gay or marrying the wrong person doesn't deserve to be a parent.

No, there isn't or at least I can't come up with one.

Yes, if they did something very bad against another family member, like murder or rape for example.

I really can't imagine disowning them. It's easier to see disinheriting them if I think they're incapable of using $ wisely, or if they'd use it to further their own self-destruction, but I can't- or won't- imagine something that would cause me to disown them.

Back when I was in high school, I knew a guy who was physically abusive to his mom, who was a single parent. He would beat her every day. Eventually, she had no choice but to call the cops to take him away.

I don't know if she actually "disowned" him, because she was a really nice lady, but I think I would have if I were in that position.

Sure, in extreme cases...if my kid tried to murder me or kill innocent people (ex. went insane) then yeah...but not for something dumb like "they don't mow the lawn"...
12 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 3/19/08 - 9:48:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
No reason
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 6/11/08 - 12:37:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
thats just not right...
12 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/19/08 - 8:34:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Maybe if they do something really horrible...but I'd want to work with them to try and fix things.

No. Not even if they were shunned and disowned by society for something.
I couldn't imagine turning my back on someone I had cared for for so many years.
I would only seek to help them.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 7/28/09 - 11:50:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't disown them. If they did something that I didn't agree with I would still love them...
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 7/28/09 - 11:59:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
What about if the kid malests his/her sibling?

I probably wouldn't speak to my kid if something that awful happend.
