By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / December 18, 2014
I was in an online networking group, for a while, in which there coincidentally happened to be many, many children of narcissistic parents, mothers especially.

By: Dater X / December 17, 2014
Earlier this week, a friend of mine sent me an article by Mark Manson titled "Fuck Yes or No," with a simple directive: "Read this." Since it had the word 'fuck' in it, I was obviously sold, considering the F-bomb has been my favorite word since I was old enough to pronounce consonants. More »

By: John DeVore / December 17, 2014

By: Avital Norman Nathman / December 12, 2014
I used to watch TLC's "Sister Wives" -- a reality show about a Mormon household with one husband, four wives, and a combined 17 children =- with a mix of shame, incredulity, and, dare I say it, jealousy.
