Christina thank you so much for sharing this with us. The article is very poignant to me and has given me loads to think about.
Your insight into children is amazing and I only wish you were in the UK so you could work with several of the children I work with. I have a saying in my job when we see a trouble teenager, look at the parents. You see two types those struggling with their own demons and those who are destroying their own children. This fits in with everything you have written.
