Definitely a form of control which my Jewish friends tell me is something at which their mothers are particularly adept.
They don't have the market cornered on this. My bitchmother was also adept at it, even sucking in her third husband to join the fray by making me responsible for her hysterics, drinking, etc. Eventually, too, in my experience, karma steps in and they STILL don't get it. More broadly, even some of the RCC's worst have sunk to the level of blaming kids for "seducing" them. Total bullshit.
"Look at what you made me do" or similar is a cop out when someone can't/won't take responsibility for his/her actions.
