1h 0m



Supression --Conscious or Unconscious ?

discussion group

Often we as human beings suppress our desires & anger for many, many, different reasons. Eg. (1.) To keep a bad marriage together. (2.) There's not enough money for a woman to go to college for a better life & she resents it, but doesn't dare consciously

1h 0m



Cultures Demand Women Have Children

Many cultures, even to some extent in the US, expect or demand women have children. What if they don't want to give (80%) of their lives to raising children, would this unconsciously cause suppressed anger ?


1h 0m



Women are Lonely/Outcasts if Childless

discussion group

In many cultures women's identities are tied to having children and childless women may be outcasted or seen as threats or just not have any support for their lives. Would this cause suppressed, unconscious anger ?


1h 0m



Women Who Don't Want Children

discussion group

What do you make of these women who drown their children ? It almost makes you wonder if they ever wanted them in the first place. Do they have unconscious rage that is so profound that the rest of us cannot even begin to imagine it. What would make a wom

What About Men Who Have Alzheimers ?

Wow --When That Unconscious Let's Go !

I have a natural talent as a teacher,
I learned it from my mother, she has a teaching degree & an RN degree & she taught (20) yrs. in Allied Health. At the Fred Astaire studio, I would dance the senior citizen widow ladies around the floor. We did not have enough men to go around, so I learned the basic steps & danced the widows who had to sit most of the night. I also danced with others at the studio if they were free for a dance.
 
Teacher's qualifications:
I cannot upload my resume, see above.
 
's preferred teaching style:
I am excellent with conveying the written word on a computer, in grade school all the way through college, the other students would rather cut out their tongues than take an essay test. They would start to sweat & hyperventilate, & shake to death. Well, I tell you my friends I don't understand it myself,it is a mystery to me, but (9) out of (10) times
I would get an "A" on my essay exams through all those years. One time I missed an exam in school & the teacher was rather mean because she did not like me & she said to me rather smartly, "don't worry about the make up test, ALL my make up tests are essay tests." Well, I replied, "fine, I do well on essay tests." My friends, you can believe she was sorry she ever gave me that test because I wrote out the answers like I was the Charles Dickens of essay exams. After grading the exam her only reply to me was to walk over by my chair in class & say "you received a stellar grade on your exam." I don't know what happens to me, but for some strange reason I turn into a completely different person & just write it all out, it just pours out ? In the days I was in school, we received quite a few essay exams, I don't know that essay exams are given as much now as they used to.
