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.
I have two wonderful children. I don't tell them how proud of them I am very often so I'm giving it to them here in writing.
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.

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.
