Dr. Laura:

I grew up in a family that VALUED family.  We were homeschooled and spent lots of time with both our parents.  My dad taught me how a man should respect a woman.  He was playful and loving towards my mother, and I never once saw them fight.  They calmly worked through their problems together.

All this preparation has been very useful in my adult life.  When I was 18, my mother gave me a copy of "10 Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives."  Now, at 32, I've found a good man, and we're working together to build toward marriage.  He was the first to suggest premarital counseling and he was very willing to read "The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage" with me.  We both bring different strengths to the relationship, and while he isn't perfect, he's perfect for ME.

Having nurturing parents who understood their proper and important roles set me up for a lifetime of success.  I currently have my own private counseling practice where I do play therapy, parent coaching and work with emotionally and physically abused women.  But my extensive education in this area is not what I pull from the most!  Rather, it's the examples set by my parents and the ever wise words of you, Dr. Laura that have been most important to me.  Thank you always!

Becky
