I especially liked when the son said something to the effect that when he was a teenager, anything his mom said had to come through his chaos. I forget the exact wording, but it really resonated with me (I was reading it at the library, the very one that once dropped Mothering for lack of interest, until I went to one of the librarians and asked for its return, in the interest of balance).
Sometimes I think my son is deliberately being disrespectful when I speak to him, but the way the son talked about his inner chaos making it hard to really hear his mother seems to explain so much.
I also felt so much hope after seeing this article, just look, her son got through it, and seems to have turned into a sensitive, intelligent young man, who still talks to his mom.
