This article hits home for me as I know I have had some negative experiences myself with therapists who have done more harm for me than good.  My healing really moved forward when I found the right help, focused on healing, growth, and moving forward in a compassionate way instead of a what's wrong with you way!  Not all therapists are like this however, for me though ... many were.

Laura Brown's comment, January 28, 2013 6:35 PM
It's not just hardcore porn. What TV show does not show people having sex at the drop of a hat? Unless kids are watching the Food Network, they are exposed to sex and the feeling that everyone does it and there is something wrong with you if you haven't had sex within the past week. That is not reality, but that is what we and our children/ teenagers see.
Beverley Glazer's curator insight, March 14, 2013 10:03 AM

Unless kids are watching the shopping channel this is the reality. It's not only porn, it's everywhere. Kids are surrounded by sexuality and consider it the norm. Is it harder to be a parent today? How can we prevent the hyper-sexualization of kids.
