The Musical Match

Alan and Sylvia went to Juilliard together; they hit it off from the very first day in school. Over the years they created some beautiful music, melodies, and eventually 2 beautiful babies. 

Their love for each other was evident in their music, she an uninhibited singer, and he a famous conductor.

On weekends, he would strum his old’ guitar and teach the boys Single String Boogie, and the complexity of rhythm, while she'd sit close by with love in her eyes for her family.

Life was good, till the elder son died.

It stole her voice, his music, and their love!

The kid knocks down a bunch of stuffs on to the floor. I tried to help, but she stops me saying the kiddo should do it. 

Bravo, Madam for not buckling under pressure. 

So, is it good parenting? Or is misbehaving child = bad parenting?
