Nellie,

Your children may have an opportunity that you didn't have , you can teach them about emotional needs & about how to fulfill them, how to take care of their (future) spouses.

If we all here had have these teachings probably this site wouldn't exist. If we look closer we'll realize that the lessons from this site & Dr. H's books apply to just about any close relationship, namely friendship.

Ultimately, if we can "spread the word" lerning from our pain & setting the example to our children & other human beings in our life we will be an instrument to help others to be happy, and in doing so we may reach happiness ourselves.
