This man is wonderful. I took to The Google while listening and I'm looking into picking up some of his materials. I'm officially a fan.
RYC: My parents' "distance" was exactly why I sought to prove my independence. It does wonders for a kids' self-esteem when they're constantly being reminded of how the roof is kept over their head or they were given Christmas gifts.

I didn't get so much as a "We're proud of you" from either of them. I did, however, get a lecture from my father about wasting money when I dropped ONE course due to stress and time constraints. MY money, mind you. Meh...
