from the diary: “Thursday 4/3/86
“I spent a couple hours of the afternoon reading Alice Miller’s For Your Own Good: Hidden Cruelty in Child-Rearing and the Roots of Violence. She traces Hitler’s early childhood, and says that children often act out the neuroses of their parents. Finished reading the book this evening.”
I remember this book in the office of Don, the therapist Mom was paying for me to see.
