2: Maybe.

To treat someone as inferior as a result of some sort of help they accepted from you and to feel you have right to teach, control, or check on them. Clearly not a noble behavior.
A:When will Teresa's parents stop patronize her, checking up on her every breath all the time?...
B:Probably never! You know..people like them will feel like that with their children forever..
