On Being A Parent.
The Duggar practise of putting children in charge of children is child abuse in my opinion and here is why I believe that.
My children and I are currently looking for a place we can rent together to share expenses. We want a place with a bungalow or granny flat out the back so I can have my own space and they can share the house. They said that way they will be able to say they do not still live with their mother – she lives with them. I have refrained from pointing out their failure to reproduce means I am not a granny yet. My children are fussy about who they will date and they have a great friendship with each other. This means they are not desperate for the support…
I got involved in someone else's fight when I went shopping today. I didn't say the things I wish I had said.
Freud claimed children want to have sex with their parents. He based that theory on the fact children told him their parents were having sex with them!
Most people agree being honest with children is a good idea but I received criticism for being as honest with my children as I was.
There is a difference between being "honoured" by your children and having their love. I managed to raise children who give me both. This entry explores my theories about how that came to be.
Appropriate love is the greatest gift a man can give his children. My thoughts about the role fathers play in their daughters sexual development.
The damage done to me in my childhood made being a good mother almost impossible. You need more than good intentions. You need accurate beliefs, information and some good supports.
How I learned that people in authority don't always know, or have the ability to care, about doing what is best for me or my children. Sometimes they will even do what is worst for us.
I had a difficult birth, an ill baby and nobody to turn to but, when the baby I was forbidden to hold grabbed my finger, he turned my life around.
