Why would anyone say this to their child???

They do not usually say it. They imply it with their behaviour. They will reward the child when he/she needs their parents and potentially show their disappointment when the child becomes more independent. All this does not happen consciously.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
