The very last thing he needs is people saying "there there Dennis, it'll be OK" - it's that attitude that is the more patronising and damaging than any 'attack' might be, because it really doesn't help him deal with it, does it? Because of course we shouldn't encourage Dennis to help himself by sometimes using harsh truths - we need to molliecoddle him and pamper him and make sure his widdle feewings don't get hurt. Noone ever learned anything about the real world like that.
