Ankita and Amon have a 9 yo integrity kid. Stuck in a negative feedback loop for a long time, their son has lost trust in them and has gone into self-protective mode. They in turn anticipate his fights and refusal to do anything they want. Attitudes and disapproval have set the stage for resistance and a very stressed family.
