  2. Breaking free from narcissistic abuse? You may need these tools for surviving a narcissist’s smear campaign.
  3. I find it healing to see survivors stand together and stand up for each other against any authority figure who uses that authority to cause harm. #IstandwithCharismaCarpenter and #IstandwithRayFisher
  4. In case you needed to love dogs even more, Dog training therapy may improve symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

  6. I’ve been criticized for letting my kids turn down hugs from me. Here’s why I don’t make them hug me when they don’t want to.
  7. Ending with your weekly reminder that All Things New: Breaking the Cycle and Raising a Joyful Family is available for purchase. Already read your copy? Leave a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads (please, leave a review–it takes courage, but it helps the people who need the message find it), and don’t forget to link up with this month’s An Open Book from Carolyn Astfalk & Catholic Mom.
