Changing nothing about how you treat your child after they have a mental breakdown and are diagnosed with depression.

Claiming other people "can't" be mad over bad behavior or that others are insert insult here for being upset. Bonus points for justifying the bad behavior when called out. ("I only did X because you did Y.") Hypocrisy at its finest.
