I’m not sure if this belongs here, if it should go somewhere else, David, please move it.
I was reading some more on that woman that threw her baby off a bridge ( http://www.msnbc.com/news/318168.asp ) and came across this:
"Some experts say it’s not unusual for parents to feel ambivalent, or even murderous, toward their children. ‘It’s a completely natural feeling,’ said Michael Flynn, a psychologist and associate director of the Center for Violence and Human Survival at John Jay College in New York. ‘They feel overwhelmed, stuck and paralyzed, knowing there is no way out except drastic action. Then, after, they say, ‘Oh my God, what have I done.’
What can this man be thinking? IMO, it is NOT natural for a human parent to feel murderous tendencies toward their own children. Tired of them, irritated by them, occasional wish that they weren’t there, even more drastic, hating them for a minute, but murdering them? Does anyone else this this is a load of bullshit?
I am outraged at the psychological crap that is coming out all the time now. It seems like it is okay to do/feel absolutely anything we please. This feel-good society makes me want to buy a cabin in the mountains and never come down.
