I totally agree about the kids. (and most of the rest, fwiw) I listen to Dr. Laura (well, I used to, when she was on free radio). I am so totally NOT her demographic audience. I don't often tell people that I did that. But every know and then, it's appropriate. I didn't have anything remotely approaching a 'safe' childhood. No, I didn't grow up on the streets of south america, and I am profoundly grateful for that. I still had trauma. Dr. Laura is a fierce fighter for children. (I think she imagines more demons than there actually are, but she fights against real demons) When ever I heard her doing that, it was like someone was reaching back in time, to the kid that I was, and showing me what should have been. It was healing.

go get 'em, mama bear.
