    I'm eager for you to do more of my work for me. This is interesting and looks like it gets better.

    Oh, it does Karen. This is the first chapter where I just got so absorbed in reading it, that I stopped writing and just kept reading. I think the first half of the book was laying the groundwork and the rest of it will be way more intriguing. And, I don't mind at all doing the work! Glad you're reading and enjoying. 🙂

    I am definitely curious to hear about the next section. I was a child raised by very abusive parents (dad, step-mother, step grandmother). At the time I was one of the worse child abuse cases in the history of my junior high. Not a proud title to have. The people who so called raised me, taught me how NOT to raise a child. Violence is not the answer and you do not need to raise your hand, fist, belt, stick, or any other object to get your point across to a child.

    Once again, I really like your blog. Thank you for sharing.

    I was riveted and am looking forward to the next section. My relationship with my parents is damaged/broken, and it really effects how I view (and participate in) the other two key relationships in my life. I am looking forward to hearing what Bowlby has to offer on the matter.

    Krys, wow, thanks for sharing that. It's amazing that you were able to see past your childhood and use the negativity toward healing your adult life and to give your kids a happy childhood.

    Elizabeth, again, so glad you're enjoying it. I too have a damaged relationship with my parents. I am a firm believer that our relationships with our parents affect our relationships with our partners and children. I am really looking forward to finishing this chapter up. It might take two more posts. 🙂
