Stranger Than Most


Now that I’m counseling more children, I’ve become more convinced that personality is established very early in our development. Kids just seem to come into the world with a temperament that changes very little throughout the lifetime. And as every parent is painfully aware, you never know what you’re going to get. We do our best to provide our kids with what they need in the way of physical and emotional support. We try to impart our values and knowledge. We guide and advise. But what we get for all our effort is basically a toss-up. Every day I see people who grew up in horrible dysfunction but somehow rose above it. I see others who came from secure, nurturing homes who just can’t seem to do right. I think it comes down to a basic division between workers and sliders.
