A Vulnerable Moment
A Vulnerable Moment

Your blog today on "How Yelling Affects Kids" was so profoundly vulnerable and touching. You told us about a very personal and intimate moment with your son, how you learned from it and apologized for it. Wow!!! It struck me right in the heart and almost brought tears to my eyes.

My Dad used to yell at me and my sisters. He did this through our entire lives. He made it clear to us that children were a nuisance. Girls in particular, were downright useless to him. Luckily, I left home at 22 and have been an independent and strong woman ever since. I have very high self-esteem after a LOT of therapy and inner work.

Now I'm 45 and successful. Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate you and your vulnerability. Your willingness to tell us about those moments makes us love and endears you.
