  1. To the first caller, Don’t listen to your wife, make reasonable effort and time for her to come around and then go tend to your kids. Depending on what you choose, your kids will love you or curse you later in their life.

    One of the things that I find disturbing here is that she may be trying to isolate you from your family. Lot of abusers and manipulators do this before they begin the abuse. Not saying she is, but it might be.

    • 2nd caller, i am so glad she called I am her! I am so glad i got to hear todays show. I am going to grieve and forgive my parents for neglecting me for most of my young life. I cant remember 5yrs or before but i know I was alone form 5-12 yrs old. Thank You!
