Excellent article, Hermit! Is there a way to get the next day's article the author mentions; i.e., the one that discusses the "guilt-throwers" who try to control their adult children?

The link is quite long so I won't post it here.

Go back to the article I linked above. Type "guilt-throwers" in the search box (top left). You'll get a list of links to the article.

My favorite part:

"As the Bible teaches, when we marry, we are to leave our parents and depend on each other. That is, we are to cut the emotional umbilical cord that can keep us tied to and controlled by a domineering parent. If our parents don't cut the cord and let go, we need to cut it ourselves."

Can I get an (((AMEN!))) ;-)

"A narcissists cannot love. If you love only in order to be loved back - this is narcissistic love. Loving someone is not dependent upon emotional reciprocity."
