->> I was always told: “You must always finish what’s on your plate.” What can I say, I was overeating for years and it took a lot of work to break the habit and shed the extra weight.

This one I strongly disagree. It's not your parents' fault if you overeating. My parents also told me exactly the same thing, "Finish you food!", because they wanted me to respect our hard-earned food and never waste it. But they never forced me to take more food than I could finish. I can take food in whatever amount of I like, but they set the strict rules: never waste any food. So they told me to take a little amount first and if I liked it, I could always add another to my plate and finish it. And if the food was not to my liking, very small portion would help me to finish it actually, and I wasn't forced to eat it any more.

And I never have overweight problem either.

Parents yelling at kids won't teach them good. They'll be hurt emotionally and I thought parents never apologize to their children but children must apologize even if their emotional state is disturbed. Parents should consider their children's feelings as they are individuals too and they need support, letting them understand situations so that they grow into better beings.

Let kids cry. Dont yell at them to grow up when they cry. Otherwise, they wont tell you when they are hurting. Also, if they say they are sad or worried or something, dont immediately freak out and assume its a mental health thing and say "Do you need to go to the doctor" talk them through it, make sure they know you are there, then you can tell them that if it gets bad to tell you.

My husband was told repeatedly by his maternal grandmother that he looked just like his father and why didn't he just die. This was when he was still around 6.

After my Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) diagnoses, I was immediately advised for a coronary angioplasty, then a stent. After a while my condition got worse again with severe shortness of breath and angina, so i started on a natural CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE (CAD) TREATMENT from Herbal Health Point, the herbal treatment was very effective treating my heart condition and the shortness of breath. I had a total decline in symptoms. Visit their web page ww w. herbalhealthpoint. c om.  Its been 2 years since the treatment, I do lots of walking and lost some weight. My daughter also used their CHF product for her congestive heart failure, very effective.
