The world is a very different place in a lot of ways from when I was growing up. Some things are still the same too. For families like mine there are more resources to deal with the overwhelming problems. It is, to a certain extent, socially acceptable to ask for help now. And, there is a lot more help to get. It seems to me, particularly with the advent of the Internet as a daily presence in many people’s lives all over the world that our world has gotten simultaneously smaller and bigger. We able to learn how similar we are to people who are radically different. Sometimes a stranger on the Internet can provide better advice, greater comfort, or a more effective kick in the ass than people who have known and loved you all your life.
