When should algebra be taught?

What is the best way to survive being married to a passive aggressive narcissist and not rage against him?

This question is, why waste your life on someone like this. Most men seldom seek psychological counseling because they feel it's a form of weakness.

They are controlling and self-centered. There is no way you can change him unless he wants to change himself and you will ALWAYS be to blame!...

How do you survive the loss of a child?

I am terribly sorry to hear of your sorrow. I don't think a person ever gets over the loss of a child no matter how old they are. Parents raise their children and expect their children to out-live them. When this doesn't happen it is a terrible shock. Although the pain will subside (the memories never will) you will survive. You need time to go through the grieving process and then you need grief counseling provided for parents who have lost children...
