I think basically it boils down to the fact that people are accustomed to convenience, and when you go against the "norm" then they take it as you saying that their decisions are inferior.
This exactly. For some reason if you do things different you've called them a bad parent, and they have to prove to you, and themselves, that they made the "better" decision. Its all very sad and childish if you ask me.
