    If it's not genetics, then it HAS to be the way you were brought up, so either way we can blame our parents can't we?!! ps my mother said I shouldn't become a psychologist because they just teach people to blame their parents for everything.... there could be some truth in this?!

    Dear Adiemus,
    In fact, there ARE those who could have turned out better human beings had they been raised by rabid wolves.

    Dear Adiemus,
    As a person who spent my "childhood" parentified, as the psychologists say
    (oldest of 8 children, absentee parents), I am not sure there is such a thing a benign neglect, but I am really into the idea of taking responsibility for one's own actions after the age of 18 or at the point when we leave the nest. Most people who are not seriously mentally ill can do that, and if you believe that guy who wrote "Scripts people live" and also the gentleman "Schools Without Failure" ( both of whose names escape me fright now), it is possible in most cases of severe mental illness to make decisions for one's own survivaL. I am not sure I agree, but there are other ways of looking at things, I guess.
    Regards,
    A'isha

    That's so true - and one of the hardest things to let your kids do at first... but how wonderful when they show you that they stop and think before doing!
