    Why are so many of the Cons antagonistic towards children? Because the "precious children," are getting care and attention they were denied. The tragic part is that for some of the most self-centered, the deprivation is all in their heads. In reality, they were cared for and pampered, but they just didn't "get it." We say they are "out of touch" and that may be literally correct -- their sense of touch is out of whack. It likely accounts for why some people are into cutting themselves.
