A two-part introduction to the subject of confronting parents—for the damages and traumas they have done to you. Although there can be, for various reasons, a great value in confronting parents, its also laden with risk, and I urge being very cautious in confronting. Sometimes the cost of confronting is complete rejection from the family, which can be emotionally devastating to almost anyone—though for others can be a liberation unto itself. Although we might wish that parents would own the trauma that they inflicted, often it is simply too difficult for them, because of their own history of abuse—and their own inability to have ever confronting their own traumatizers.

- Added This guy is OUTSTANDING!!! Apart from Andrew Vachss, I do not know anyone who so clearly states the TRUTH. No psycho-babble but the fact that abusers are evil, and must not be "excused". Yes, a LOT of so-called "parents" hate their children, and DELIBERATELY harm them. This needs to be told again and again and again. EXCELLENT Mr Mackler!!!!
