As a rule, any parenting that is done for any reason but the good of the child is wrong.

Well stated.

From a little more of a Jewish perspective, I would say that our children (and להבדיל our money) are not ours, but rather Hashem's and were entrusted in our hands in order to do the absolute best with them and for them. We should constantly remember our fiduciary role to do the right thing in accordance with the wishes of the one whose children (and להבדיל money) were entrusted in our hands.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

While that's a very nice thought, it is totally impractical on a day to day level for almost everyone. I would even venture to say that anyone who says that they raise their kids that way is either lying or making way too many avoidable mistakes while raising said kids.
