I always was frustrated by how Sarek pushed Spock to reject his human side, but perhaps he was trying to protect Spock from all the bigots who would try and use that human side against him.
I agree with this, my parents did the same with me and my brothers (as first generation children of indian immigrants in England, our overprotective parents wanted us not to assimulate English ways or develop strong relationships with English people, because they felt that ultimately we wouldnt' be accepted because of our race and only get hurt, probably because being relatively uneducated they'd suffered a lot of racial abuse in their own experience).
