044: The True Self Vs. the Fantasy Family


(Kids Are Not Defective Part 2)

After reflecting on the last show, I wanted to explore my family comments a bit more thoroughly. Why do adults jump so quickly to the defense of the authority figures in their lives? Why are so many people resistant to the idea that their childhoods were not exactly great? When and how will the effects of childhood mistreatment reveal themselves? Because they always do.

To answer these questions, I briefly channel a "composite character" assembled from many of my past discussions about raising children.
