Legacy of Absence: Resolving the Wounds from Uninvolved Fathers In Individuals, Families, and Society

Despite all the progress in our world-from advancing human rights to life-saving technology, there is a wound that has spread to every corner of society. It affects individuals, families, businesses, and communities. In fact, evidence shows almost every problem in our society can be traced back to this root cause:

FATHERS WHO ARE UNINVOLVED IN THE LIVES OF THEIR CHILDREN

The Reality

• Whatever the reason for the father’s absence-work, addictions, divorce, or even death-the negative impact on children is the same.

• The impact of uninvolvement continues for the child’s entire life, affecting school, work, finances, relationships, and emotional wellbeing.

• Without intervention to stop the cycle, the effects will likely pass onto the next generation. There is Hope

• It is never too late to understand and bring healing to the father wound.

• Even a physically absent father can be involved with his children.

• To some extent, every one of us fails in our respective roles. What’s more important is how we transform our pain into a legacy of love that lasts for generations. What will be your legacy? Free on Kindle.

How To Leave

How To Leave

Still Whole

In my family, showing one’s emotions
was considered to be a flaw.
Flagrantly raw,
I was willing to bear their
pompous, parental scorn
so as to remain true
to that which drove me,
relentless, inherent, untorn.

– Neela Arnaud

FROM THE AUTHOR: This book of poems bears witness to my journey of learning to leave toxic people and situations as I progressed in my recovery and healing from toxic family abuse, narcissistic partner abuse.

It is also a book that reflects my growing ability to recognize various forms of covert and overt abuse and do whatever was necessary to protect my mind, body, heart, and soul so as to keep my self (and spirit) alive. I hope you find inspiration in these 32 short poems that bear witness to my journey of recovery from relational abuse. $2.99 on Kindle.

There is Always Room For One More

There is Always Room For One More

As parents to four children, there were always extra children visiting our house while our children were growing up. Our house was filled with love and compassion. As the children grew and became adults, I missed the sound of laughter and enthusiasm in the house. After reading an article in the paper about a foster care agency petitioning for help, I knew that Aaron and I could fill that need. The year was 1994. Over a twenty-five-year period, more than 100 children graced our homes. This compilation shares some of their stories; the success stories and even the challenges. We are only one of thousands of families who saw a need and decided to help. But the fight is far from over. We need to work on our foster care programs by educating the public about foster care, strengthen the families of origin, help the children to function in foster care without drugging them with medication to control them. More support is needed for case workers and managers, for they have a heavy workloads. We need to help the children to build positive connections before they age out. We are all in this together for these children will one day be adults who are the future of our country. Remember, there is always room for one more. $2.99 on Kindle.

Daughters Grow up Feeding on Mother’s Emotions: Self-Recovery Guide to Heal the Love-Hate Relationship between Mothers and Daughters, and How to Protect our Daughters from Emotional Legacy

Daughters Grow up Feeding on Mother’s Emotions: Self-Recovery Guide to Heal the Love-Hate Relationship between Mothers and Daughters, and How to Protect our Daughters from Emotional Legacy

“Mother is Mother, Daughter is Daughter”

– A self-recovery guide for all mothers and daughters by a psychoanalytic expert

– How mothers can reclaim their lives as an independent women and human beings

Why do mothers turn more to their daughters than sons when feeling upset or distressed? Why do mothers look upon their happily married daughters with not just pride but a hint of jealousy? Why do daughters, when thinking about their mothers, feel gratitude as well as guilt and resentment?

We need to lose our mothers to find ourselves. And we need to find ourselves for our daughters to live their own lives. Woo-ran Park, a psychoanalytic expert who for more than ten years has conducted over 10,000 psychotherapy and dream interpretation sessions, reaches deep into psychology research and case studies to unlock the secret behind the love-hate relationship between mothers and daughters and explain how we can protect our girls from this emotional wounding across generations.Many reasons lie behind the mother’s obsession with her daughter and the daughter’s inability to break free from this hold. But the author pays particular attention to the female tendency to attain self-realization by meeting the unmet needs of others. Mothers typically see the son or husband as the other and try to satisfy their needs, but when it comes to the daughter, who they see as their equivalent, they’re more likely to make demands. Likewise, daughters identify with the mother and see the mother’s emotions as her own. This is what makes the mother-daughter relationship so complicated: the daughter is angry at the mother who is full of demands but gives little love, and wants to hate her but can’t.

This deep psychological bond between the mother and daughter starts to show cracks as they become older, introducing problems, both big and small, into their lives. Feelings of obsession, bitterness, resentment, longing, and gratitude get rolled into one and make the two oscillate between love and hate. In short, the mother and daughter have failed to create a healthy distance between themselves.

Then what can we do? Park says we should question the social concept of unconditional motherly love and try to bring to surface the mom’s deeply-buried wants and desires as a woman. Only then can we forge a path different from our mother’s and our daughters live a different life from our young selves. The author walks us through the main conduits through which the mother’s unconscious is passed onto the daughter—emotions, gaze, unmet needs, maternal love, husband—and how we can reclaim ourselves as not just a woman but as a human being.
