I used to hate to visit my Ps, because they never turned off the TV while we were there. Dad had a TV in kitchen that he watched and then there was the big one in the living room that was on even when no one was watching it. I often turned the big one off while we ate or if no one was watching it. Dad would literally sit there and watch his TV while the rest of us sat at the table and talked or prepared the meal.
With my Ps, really my M more than F, were insulted every time I made a decision that was counter to their own personal choices. This was just another one of those things, and they could save my kids from my choices by providing an alternative.
