Unresolved guilt – in actuality or in the perception of the individual – has always been a tremendous problem, even - skeptics would likely say "especially" - for Christian people. One survey several years ago said that a majority of church members saw this as an issue in their spiritual life. I suspect this hasn't changed much since. Many times people - both religious and non-religious - feel guilt as a consequence of their actions, but fail or refuse to acknowledge it. And even when we do, they may have little understanding of how to deal with it.

Q: How do you stop tantrums in a 3-year-old? My daughter never went through the "terrible twos" but began throwing wild tantrums shortly after her third birthday. This coincided with the birth of a sibling - a boy - but she's very affectionate and helpful toward him, so I don't know if there's any connection. I've tried everything I can think of to prevent and stop the tantrums - things I've seen recommended in various places - but nothing has worked. She throws one whenever she doesn't get her way. Help!
