You are in Singapore, right? I imagine "family counseling" isn't quite the panacea it is in the US. Public embarrassment via the family court system might be interesting... but you should check with a counselor/lawyer who could help you frame it in an effective way.

Sounds like your parents are on the far dysfunctional end of the scale of "Asians never get a break from their parents". My wife never got a good word from her mother despite a lifetime of going way beyond the pale in her career or in taking care of her. It was never good enough.

Fortunately, her dad was far different - but sadly he died pretty young.
