But this kvetching about doing the right thing every time with your children leads to happiness, not having fun with them, isn't necessarily true.

Get back to me when it's been 18 years and I'll take what he is saying more seriously. That's still the honeymoon phase, very likely there's nothing that has gone wrong between this young couple yet. But this idea he is promoting, that women are all emotional is a toxic dangerous one. And on the flip side, if you are upset with your spouse over something please learn how to discuss it rationally without being the all emotional little women these … [Read more...]
