via Facebook "Children can’t be too attached, they can only be not deeply attached. Attachment is meant to make our kids dependent on us so that we can lead them. It is our invitation for relationship that frees them to stop looking for love and to start focusing on growing."

Psychology shows it’s a big mistake to base our self-worth on our professional achievements May 27, 2017 at 11:19PM

"In other words, you’re a successful adult when you outgrow the natural selfishness of your childhood and youth—when you realize that life is no longer about charting your own course, but about helping others, whether it’s by raising children, mentoring colleagues, or creating something new and useful for the world. Generative people perceive themselves as part of a larger tapestry and seek to preserve it, however humbly, for future generations. This legacy gives their lives meaning."
via Facebook Most of us have dreams that won’t come true. The question is—how do we respond to that disappointment?

Perspective | I wrote ‘The Art of the Deal’ with Trump. His self-sabotage is rooted in his past. May 17, 2017 at 11:42PM

"As we have seen countless times during the campaign and since the election, Trump can devolve into survival mode on a moment’s notice. Look no further than the thousands of tweets he has written attacking his perceived enemies over the past year. In neurochemical terms, when he feels threatened or thwarted, Trump moves into a fight-or-flight state. His amygdala is triggered, his hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis activates, and his prefrontal cortex — the part of the brain that makes us capable of rationality and reflection — shuts down. He reacts rather than reflects, and damn the consequences. This is what makes his access to the nuclear codes so dangerous and frightening."

Ease Up: Psychological Abuse May be Damaging Your Child May 01, 2017 at 09:01AM

"62% of the youth in the study had endured a second or third form of abuse as well as psychological abuse. About 1/4 (roughly 24%) had suffered from only psychological abuse. Specifically, "bullying, terrorising, coercive control, harsh insults, debasement, threats, overwhelming demands, shunning, and isolation," said researchers. To the researchers surprise, the kids who had been psychologically abused suffered from mental illnesses as a result. Namely, anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and suicidal thoughts. The youths comprising this group, more than any other form of abuse, showed signs of substance abuse, social attachment problems, and general anxiety disorder."
via Facebook “We need public awareness initiatives to help people understand just how harmful psychological maltreatment is for children and adolescents."
