About this deal

I always bristle at any theory that attempts to explain everything with a single reason or cause, especially in the complicated matters of psychology or human emotion. Thus we suppress the child’s curiosity, for example (there are questions one should not ask), and then when he lacks a natural interest in learning we offer him special coaching for his scholastic difficulties. I asked for both parents to accompany Katherine to the first session, so I could get everyone’s perspective on the problem. And here's another thing: women both devout and otherwise had good reason to fear when their husbands went to taverns and came home drunk, because drunkenness is a contributing factor to domestic violence against both wives and children.

In 1979, she stopped practicing as a psychoanalyst after having studied and practiced psychoanalysis for 20 years and became critical of both Freud and Carl Jung. Where there is no parental respect for a child's feelings, he will seek refuge from his pain in ideologies.Miller also mentions the importance of confronting those who have caused the hurt during childhood, whether face to face or, if the former is impossible for one reason or another, through a mental dialogue wherein the adult can finally unload the Inner Child’s actual feelings onto the person who has caused them and have a discussion with them. Since the parent, especially the mother, is the child's soul source of survival, the child strives to please the all-important parent, fearing disapproval, or abandonment. When Katherine protested, her mother countered that friends could move away at any time and then she would be in the exact same situation at a school with worse academics.

Katherine’s father had expressed sympathy for his daughter’s isolation, but when his wife started to protest a change of schools, he remained silent.About parents who turn to the child and children who can't turn to their parents to have their needs met.

Miller has been banging the drum for truly empathetic childcare for more than 25 years, so perhaps it is not surprising if she sounds a little shrill nowadays.I have come to understand irrational and debilitating aspects of my own behaviors, that stemmed from childhood traumas, and seen how these can be liberated once they are experienced emotionally.
