Loved the title, and how you switched it (for me) onto Jack's Dad. The emerging self-doubt, and how Dad's values confirmed them helped me to this view.
I love your subtle sketches of the emotions in this piece. However I'm left wondering about Jack's mother's ongoing need; and think maybe a more immediate shorter-term crisis could have opened Jack up just as well.
Interesting story. We have to decide on our priorities. Thank you.
