    This article churns my stomach, but I think there might be something to it.

    I am Adam Lanza's Therapist.

    This is absolutely bombshell provocative. Could abandonment by mothers at such a young age be fueling much of youth violence that we see now? If that is the case, then perhaps we shouldn't be pointing the fingers at firearms. Maybe the feminists who urged all the mothers to put their children in child care at such early ages are the problem? Perhaps the breakdown the family is the issue?

    I've read few rational explanations for this. Most people simply say that something like this defies all explanation. It's an unspeakable and evil act with no cause. But what if this is the cause? What if Adam Lanza's mother created this tragedy by following societies expectations of her? How much pain and suffering and violence could this be causing in our society if this is true?

    I don't agree with this at all. There are many, many, many, children in daycare due to both parents working. most from just a few months old. Very few of them kill children when they become a teenager.

    True, but not everyone who is damaged behaves in the same way either. Some people get depressed. Some people hurt themselves. Some people explode outward. The number of people on anti-depressants keeps rising. What if this is related to that?
