Robert Wiston discusses Dr Linda Neilsons work
Dr. Linda Neilsons website
While most American women obsess about the laments of frazzled mothers, a handful of their daughters at Wake Forest University are turning their attention to the study of that mysterious and often-demonized species – fathers. Yep, you read it right. Fathers. Dear ol’ Dad. Remember him? Each week, these young women (and one young man, who signed up because he hopes to be a good father someday) arrange their desks in a circle with Dr. Linda Nielsen, psychologist, professor and author, to learn about fathers and fatherhood in the only such college course in the country. The class is not a therapy session or support group, but a tough college course like any other, involving research, reading, field projects, papers, tests and grades. It’s just harder than most because it also involves introspection, self-analysis and the search for insight into one of life’s most important relationships.

  1. Sure, relationship of daughters with fathers is an important subject. And another opportunity to remind us that every analysis of relationships has to begin with basic facts about gender relationships, so we can look at everything with stereoscopic glasses:

    “Men enter relationships to satisfy reproductive instincts (sex, kids and family) – women enter relationships not to achieve sex, pregnancy, and if family, then the smallest possible. Women enter relationships to exploit men”

    This is the fundamental rule our whole human race is based on. Women consume more than produce and the difference has to be covered by exploitation of men. Women have to force men to provide useful goods and services to women and children. Women can’t have sexuality like animals, because human babies require long brain development. That’s how Mother Evolution developed women.

    Women exploit men before, during and after marriage. Exploitation starts at the first date, when he buys her ice cream – and she continues exploiting him even after his death through his pension plan.

  4. Dr. Linda Nielsons Course for daughters to better understand their relationship FATHERS & DAUGHTERS: COURSE SYLLABUS

  5. The style of Dr. Linda Nielson’s course is very much what would be required to undo PAS by the mother (if you could get your daughter along to attend?).

    Although Dr. Linda Nielson primarily addresses father – daughter relationships, many of these issues apply also for PAS impacts onto sons.

    PAS relationship damage is never addressed the “system of evil”, it leaves it up to the disadvantaged parent to sort out!!?? (Once the money is gone, you don’t see them for the dust.)
