While it is usually a good idea to keep your home a safe nest, a place of peace and tranquility for your own personal mental health, much less that of anyone else, this idea that there can only be happy and positive emotions going on in your home is just toxic.  The sad thing is those that are following Nancy are likely right now beating themselves up with guilt over failing to do just that.
