I found this book very helpful in seeing through the lies I grew up with and working toward overcoming them and making my life my own.

Free From Lies... Thank You Dr. Miller for yet another masterpiece.

Childhood, the base for the rest of our lives... why as parents would we ever choose to make it a cruel base? It is time to wake up, stop repeating what was done to us, discover new loving ways to treat our children, admit our parents did it wrong and not feel the need in the very same breath to excuse that. We all have choices in life, we do not have to spank/beat our kids just because it was done to us. We can think for ourselves and realize that hitting a child can NeVeR be right or justified... it is just purely barbaric. Alice Miller suggests we think of a giant coming over to us and hitting us over and over... just think about that... How would one feel? Scared, petrified, humiliated, hatred towards this giant, wanting revenge.... all of these would be a typical response... And this is exactly what children DO FEEL as it is being done to them by their parents (the giants). Yet because they are children, this is considered okay???!?! Yet if this happened to an adult by a 30 foot giant, everyone would be against the giant... but again, a child... this is called parenting, this is called discipline... this is called BLINDNESS. Thank you Dr. Miller for the truth.

A powerful survey

FREE FROM LIES: DISCOVERING YOUR TRUE NEEDS is from any who denied that they suffered physical and emotional abuse as children. Former victims can heal by discovering and acknowledging their true history instead of denying it - and this explains why a therapist should become a witness to the survivor of such cruelty rather than the usual neutral therapeutic role. A powerful survey, this is a pick for any general or health lending library.

Free From Lies

I know the value of this writer's material (Alice Miller) - she did not disappoint. All her books, including this one, are excellent tools for identifying those vague uncomfortable feelings that become emotional blocks.
