I met Janet in the late 1970s at meetings for in-house childcare. I ran a preschool for two to five-year-olds, including my children; about thirty other children attended over five years. Janet ran an after-school daycare. She handed me a book titled The Dark Side of the Light Chasersby Debbie Ford, published in 1998.
As far as I understand from Debbie Ford, knowledge about who we are and who we become is not the same for each being. The experiences we have, the attitudes accepted, and beliefs trusted impair successes in our lives. The attitude enforced by parents, schools, marriages, religions, professions, through social norms, we believed to be real.
My impairment was “males got everything. ”This attitude not from my dad, as fair as he was to me; this attitude came through my mother. Her brothers went to high school, not her. Her stepfather sent my mother went off to work at age fourteen; she received no chance while her brothers gra nted privileges. My mom's step dad's attitude greatly impacted me. My grandmother waited on this grumpy, bossy, older man. He lost his engineering career; he ran over a woman while courting my grandmother. She served this negative man, which affected my roots, my standing as a girl.
