I often talk about avoiding the 4 horsemen of the relational apocalypse from the work of John Gottman. This is an excellent, short video explaining what the 4 horsemen look like: criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling. It also gives a few hints on how to avoid them. These 4 are responsible for much of marital demise… so let’s get to challenging them asap!

I appreciated this frank post I came across on Richard Dutcher’s facebook page. I agree… stay away from depressants when depressed… the holidays can be a difficult time for many… let’s stay cognizant of that reality as we go about our daily lives. Reach out to those you think or know are hurting. If you’re struggling with suicidal thoughts, please know you are wanted, needed and loved…. even if or when it doesn’t feel like it. There is help somewhere…… Read more

On a recent facebook thread I read the following things being said about me: “Parker is a social and sexual radical and sexual revolutionist.” This was not meant as a compliment by the way… “So extremed and ideologically fevered that she even outdoes among the most exuberant of her ideological comrades from my generation – no small task.” If you want to see the full comments you can click here. Although I’m not interested in further dialogue with any one… Read more

Super powerful article. It’s difficult during these times of family reunions to sometimes know how to respond to uncomfortable situations where family members may be well meaning… and yet are not willing to check their own egos, “hurt feelings,” or traditions in behalf of children or other vulnerable members.
