It also sounds like it's an awful lot of work. The guys are essentially simulating being the parents of children with extreme mental retardation -- except that they're not letting a partner help share the burden of running someone else's life 24/7.

Just think how much these guys could get done in their own lives if they weren't so obsessed with micromanaging someone else's. Or are they doing this precisely because they feel so helpless and powerless in every other part of their lives? (As the shrink said, when we don't feel we have the "power to" create, we seek out "power over" as a substitute.)
