The Narcissist and the Nurturer … or Perhaps Lack Thereof

The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world….truer words were never spoken. Childhood, whether good or bad, seems to shape personality in many complex ways. Perhaps it isn’t as straightforward as stating that a good upbringing ensures a decent adult, or a difficult upbringing creates a dysfunctional adult. There are too many variables to… Continue reading The Narcissist and the Nurturer … or Perhaps Lack Thereof

Genie in a Bottle and a Bedroom

The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling is the happy fantasy of a wild child raised by beasts and somehow not merely surviving but thriving.  Of course the story was merely that: a fairytale with little basis in reality. Rudyard experience a troubled childhood that influenced the development of the heart-warming story.

Heaven has No Rage as Love to Hatred Turned, nor Hell a Fury like a Woman Scorned

Hell has no great a fury as a woman scorned is William Congreve’s famous misquote, but we get the idea. Betty Broderick, the scorned ex-wife and former American suburban housewife of a successful lawyer in La Jolla, San Diego, did not. The Broderick story was typical: Betty was a beautiful woman when her husband, Dan Broderick, married her some… Continue reading Heaven has No Rage as Love to Hatred Turned, nor Hell a Fury like a Woman Scorned

Serial Killers and Mommy

It would appear in my personal research that many (if not most) serial killers have serious issues with their mothers.  Some Mommies have a tight hold on their sons so it would seem and some Mommies are harsh disciplinarians, so as to “toughen” the child. Instead, it creates a lack of love between parent and child that has disastrous… Continue reading Serial Killers and Mommy
