co-dependency causes it?[edit]

Don't see any citation for this, and isn't co-dependency quite the opposite problem than dysfunctional families? (talk) 21:29, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

This uncited assertion, that received no contextual development within the text, has now, more than 2 years later, been removed. Whether it's right or wrong, it is contrary to verifiability principles. FeatherPluma (talk) 02:47, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Who undid my edit and why?[edit]

That sentence is sexist and doesn't belong on wikipedia. I'm removing it again, and if it's re-restored, I'm contacting the admins for vandalism. Bumblebritches57 (talk) 01:58, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Actually, I'm removing the entire sentence because it's fucking useless. "which was socially unacceptable at the time. Historically, children of dysfunctional families were expected to obey their parents (ultimately the father)" Disobeying parents is STILL socially unacceptable, and doesn't need to be stated at all. Bumblebritches57 (talk) 02:00, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

...and increasing the probability of divorce, which was socially unacceptable at the time. Historically, children of dysfunctional families were expected to obey their parents (ultimately the father), and cope with the situation alone.
You obviously didn't read the paragraph very well. The words "socially unacceptable" refer to divorce, not children disobeying their parents.
Of course the last part is sexist. This is in a historical context, and not about anything current. In an article this long, it's hardly excessive to have a few sentences devoted to history. I will add "and historical context" to the "Perceptions" title to further minimize the chance of anyone getting confused.
Finally, debate about what academic material to include in Wikipedia is NOT considered vandalism. Yaneph (talk) 01:20, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

What about "encyclopedia style"?[edit]

This article does not read like an encyclopedia article. It needs a major rewrite to make it useful to the general-interest reader. A collection of lists does not an article make, and the whole thing appears to have been lifted verbatim from a self-help book. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:51, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
