    I was raised by an insane E8 who toughened me up like this. There are bad parts about it, but I actually thank her, I'm pretty strong even compared to my own mother because of it.

    I was trying to think of if I do this or not..

    I don't generally think people as a whole are very strong anyways. It doesn't really cross my mind to 'condition' them for strength.. I think if I started setting goals like that I'd drive myself insane.

    But I do want to see friends and family succeed. I frequently give out strong advice, and I sincerely hope they take it. I am MORE than willing to go out of my way for people I am responsible for if it means they'll get stronger as a result. I don't find either of those things unhealthy though.

    I think if I were a parent I would be a lot stricter than most parents.. I'd be very military about it. But I don't really find that unhealthy either. I don't think I'd throw my son off of a cliff.

    You can usually change it by going to Edit -> Advanced.

    As to the title, my 8w9 coworker absolutely CODDLES her daughter.

    Oh, your post is probably too old to change. For maybe a few days or a week after you post, you're able to edit it. Sorry, I didn't take note of the date when I replied. If it's within date, you just do Edit Post -> Go Advanced.

Also, I have a friend who had an 8 father, and he would be much tougher on his daughter than most fathers would and would literally beat her senseless if she didn't get good grades. So 8's, do you put your loved ones though "conditioning training" to make them stronger/what do you do?
    lmao... Heihachi is a beast... and that HAIR!

    My ex complained that I constantly ruined her self esteem, while I felt like I was dragging a dead body with me everywhere. She'd say something like, "You're too good for me" and I'd say, "If you start thinking that, it'll become true." My intention was to make her stand on her own two feet instead of borrow lean against me for support all the time, but the effect was actually counterproductive. It often felt like I was picking up a ragdoll and dropping it limp as it fell to the ground. My current girlfriend owns her own house, has her own job, makes significantly more money than I do, and refuses my help when I offer it. I think I love her.

    No. I'm highly protective of loved ones and close friends, quite often, can be too tolerant.

    My sister is an 8 and she's never been abusive to others by conditioning them in ways that can cause harm. She can be very tough on people, has high expectations, and wants results but she tends to be extremely indulgent toward loved ones. In a romantic relationship, she can be amazingly tolerant and forgiving of all kinds of things.
