A "childhood home." What does that mean? I guess it means a place in which the circumstances felt more or less safe and stable. I never had such a thing, so I rolled it around in my mind. How nice it would be to feel safe. Not go hungry. Supported to the extent possible. A part and parcel with the surroundings. And perhaps feel entitled and as if nothing really had to be done in order that such a safety net might remain in place.
Is a childhood home, ipso facto, another version of Santa Claus -- a fairy with a magic wand? What kid would feel otherwise since this waxing being is a blank slate on which habits and rules were written?
