I often get male clients who feel sandwiched between their mother and wife. They tend to feel like a ping pong ball been thrown from one to the other. Each complaining about the other and expecting THE MAN to MAN -UP and take sides. I know we joke about it, but having seen so many men seeking professional help to adjust to the situation and/or cope with anxiety and depression arisisng from it, that I've become more sensitive to the matter. What's your take on it? I teach skills to my clients to cope with it for sure. But would love to know your views.
Sandwich called men. We often ignore how men get sandwiched between their mother and wife.
