Of course, parents are annoying in many ways. But that too is an important
realisation. We would never leave home and become parents ourselves if we
weren’t at some level compensating for the problems, mistakes and vices
we had first identified in our own parents.

Question:Is it saying we become parents in order to not repeat( to eliminate) the problems, mistakes and vices
we had first identified in our own parents?.
