How Smart People Become Foolish Parents

A client came to me for help dealing with her “bratty” six-year-old. The kid was acting out at school and at home. She stated that she was confident that she had done all the right things. She had been a progressive parent who read poetry to her child while the boy was still in her womb. She had eaten nutritious meals while pregnant and had been a taught...

The Danger of Categorizing People

The categorizing of people has gone on for decades. We brand people as “white males” and “black males” and “white females” and “black females” and “transgender” and “homosexual” and “bisexual” and “lesbian,” and “conservative” and “liberal” and “Republican” and “Democrat,” placing them each into a neat group that comes with associated traits.

Stereotypes prevail. Conservatives are “conservative bigots.” Liberals are “libtards.” White males are “white supremacists.” Asians are “soft,” Blacks are...

The Inexorable Rise in Mass Killings

Why do we have so many mass killings? Some people say the availability of guns is the reason. Guns have been available since America was born, but up until the last sixty years mass killings were few and far between. Since the 1960s there has been a significant rise in gun-related killings.

5 Family Myths That Hinder Growth

The family myth is generally an extension of the one or both parents’ narcissism. It is a kind of propaganda that is repeated over and over so that it prevents members from thinking objectively about their family’s functioning or growing.

The family myth can be simple or complex. One or both parents become the creators of the family myth, indoctrinating others with the ideology on which the myth is based....

From Below: The Intellectual Dark Web

A new force has emerged to take on the radical left that now dominates Western culture. So far it is relatively underground, but after a recent report in the New York Times revealed its existence, this underground free thought network has begun to float toward the surface.

“Crucially, the entire political axis on which traditional media still operates is shown on the intellectual dark web to be moribund,” notes Douglas Murray, one of the people who...

Helping Children Respond to Disaster

Two hurricanes in a row, Harvey and Irma, devastated Texas, Florida and other states, causing physical and emotional damage to people, turning their lives upside down and in some cases ending them; and causing damage to property, including oil refineries and crops. However, perhaps the greatest toll was on children.

A child’s emotional response to a disaster is far greater than an adult’s. This is highlighted by an ongoing...

Chappaquiddick: An Epic Tragedy

In the new movie, Chappaquiddick, directed by John Curren, written by Taylor Allen and Andrew Logan and starring Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy, we have an old-fashioned tragic drama of the kind that has been missing from the American cinema scene for years.

In particular, what has been missing from the American cinema scene is movies that tell the truth. Chappaquiddick manages to tell the truth about an incident that...
