A Son Who Brings Shame and Reproach

Every society faces the problem of “elder abuse.” In time, a son always becomes stronger than his father and can push him around, and a son (or a daughter) can sometimes appropriate his mother’s house and property, perhaps abusing a trusting mother’s grant of power of attorney to “chase her away.”
